Episode three of Game of Thrones Season 7, The Queen’s Justice, is out and we have the data.
**SPOILER NOTES: There are two parts to this post. In the first, we won’t go into the details of what happened in the episode but we’ll tell you which characters were mentioned most and when spikes in mentions occur. In the second, we’ll tell you exactly what the top mentioned moments are. Big time spoilers. You’ve been warned.**
You can check out our social data run-downs of all of the episodes so far this season here:
It was the end of the episode that saw the largest spike in mentions, although there were significant moments throughout.
Compared to last week, this was a much bumpier episode in terms of mention spikes with five or six significant moments – something that wasn’t so evident in last week’s chart.
Surprise surprise, the King of the North is the top-mentioned character for the second week running.
We were interested to see that Olenna Tyrell wasn’t in the top five mentioned characters (she was just outside of it), given that she was at the heart of the biggest moment spike.
In order of the top five moments, here were the things that drove the most mentions during the episode. You might recognize the data from its appearance in Business Insider this week:
Everyone was keen to know who was at the gates of Winterfell to see Sansa Stark, who had taken charge in Jon Snow’s absence.
Would it be Arya? A mysterious guest? You’ll find out in a minute…
In what felt like no time, Jon and Davos arrived at Dragonstone’s shore.
Jon was greeted by Tyrion Lannister, who he’d last met at The Wall.
Since the family were torn apart many seasons ago, a reunion of the Stark kids has been on the wish lists of many viewers.
While Sansa was happy to see her brother, Bran was a little less emotional. In fact, he revealed quite plainly that he could see everything about everyone and it got a bit awkward.
So basically Bran got the mess and gossip on everyone #Gameofthrones

The much-awaited meeting between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen took place at Dragonstone.
So…. it wasn't quite love at first sight… maybe it was but Jon and Dany didn't realize it yet??? #GameOfThrones

It was perhaps a little more hostile than many had hoped.
After the Unsullied Army stormed Casterly Rock, they were confused to find a lack of Lannister soldiers.
Little did they know, the Lannister Army was attacking High Garden. Finding Olenna Tyrell at the end of the fight, Jaime Lannister poisons her. After voluntarily drinking it, Olenna reveals that she was the mastermind of King Joffrey’s famous purple-faced poison death.
Jaime, Joffrey’s secret father, storms out looking mighty pissed off.
