Here be spoilers for 'Game of Thrones' season 7, episode 2! For those who haven't seen the episode yet, turn away now... For those who have already enjoyed all of the action in 'Stormborn', you'll likely still be reeling following the hugely dramatic, chaotic and deadly scenes that took place in the episode's last moments.
Jessica Henwick played a prominent part in this week's episode
As Yara and Theon Greyjoy sailed Daenerys Targaryen's fleet towards Dorne, in the hopes of picking up the Dornish army to work by Daenerys' side, they were intercepted in a surprise attack by the Greyjoy's mad uncle, Euron Greyjoy. He quickly proved himself to be an incredible force on the oceans, wiping out many of the soldiers fighting for Daenerys and snatching away not only his niece Yara, but Ellaria Sand too; the woman responsible for poisoning and killing Myrcella Baratheon. With Myrcella the daughter of Cersei Lannister - who now sits on the Iron Throne and the woman who Euron wishes to serve and eventually marry - it's clear exactly what the gift he promised Cersei would be. With next week's episode titled 'The Queen's Justice', it would seem Ellaria isn't long for this world.
The actress was allowed release from Marvel to continue with her role on 'Game of Thrones'.
'Game Of Thrones' fans have had quite the wait for the series' seventh season, with the debut episode pushed back around two months later than the show would usually premiere. With just seven episodes making up season 7 as opposed to the 10 episodes that have made up the six seasons to-date, those working on the show will have had to refine their vision. Having had more time to do so than in the past however, there's a lot of growing expectation for this coming batch of new episodes.
Jessica Henwick also stars as Colleen Wing in 'Iron Fist' and the upcoming 'The Defenders'
The fantasy series - based on the incomplete George R R Martin novel series 'A Song of Ice & Fire' - has delivered more twists and turns than any small screen offering in recent memory, with those working on it unafraid to take out fan favourite characters for the betterment of the story they're trying to tell.

Jessica Henwick seen at the premiere of Disney And Marvel Studios' new movie 'Doctor Strange' held at the El Capitan Theatre, Hollywood, California, United States - Friday 21st October 2016
Appealing both to a new generation of viewers and fans of the series since the beginning, this 30-years-later sequel to 1983's Return of the Jedi is a thrilling adventure. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams has managed to capture the tone of the original trilogy while telling a story about young, vibrant new characters whose connection to the overall saga deepens intriguingly as events unfurl.
Over the past three decades, the Empire has regrouped, forming the First Order to crush the Old Republic for good. And the plucky Rebellion hasn't offered much resistance since leader Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) disappeared. The Empire's top henchman Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is searching for him just as diligently as the rebel leader General Leia (Carrie Fisher). But the real action is happening out of their grasp, as disaffected storm trooper Finn (John Boyega) teams up with rebel pilot Poe (Oscar Isaac) and then feisty scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) and expressive droid BB-8. Along the way, Han Solo and Chewbacca (Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew) find themselves back in the fray. And everyone is startled when there's a strong stirring in the force.
Abrams beautifully recreates the scruffy, clanky mechanical atmosphere of the original trilogy, infusing scenes with witty banter and John William's soaring score to throw us right back into that familiar galaxy. This includes the saga's main themes: the temptation of power, how true heroism is often accidental, and the tension between parents and children. Combine this with a plot that propels itself with a series of unexpected adventures and battles, all centred on the characters, and the film taps strongly into the teen in all of us.

After the victory of the Rebel Alliance over the Galactic Empire and subsequent demolition of The Death Star, you'd imaging life in a certain galaxy would be a little more subdued, but as we soon learn, life for Princess Leia, Luke and Hans wasn't exactly easy following their small yet essential victory.
30 years on and to most citizens - humanoid and alien - the stories of evil Lord Darth Vader and the Jedi Masters are just a legend, a story they tell their children that starts with the well-known overture: 'A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away'. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the seventh film in the Star Wars series and is an additional story to the original Star Wars outline.
The film follows a set of new characters as they join the battle and fight the evil forces once again threatening to destroy their galaxy. The Force Awakens was directed by Jj Abrams and sees a number of cast favourites return to the story including Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.
It's been thirty years since the Rebel Alliance; led by the noble Luke Skywalker, the intrepid Princess Leia and the lionhearted Han Solo; finally defeated Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire, alongside his redeemed assistant Darth Vader. The second Death Star was reduced to rubble, and the galaxy was free from a tyrannous evil once more. If only that were true. For there can never be good without evil, and sure enough another Dark Lord, Supreme Leader Snoke, has arisen to take the Emperor's place, with even more brutal plans for the civilians across the stars. But this time there are also new heroes, better equipped to deal with the ever looming terror thanks to an example set by the now ageing former Han, Luke and Leia. They are now preparing to help a vindicated former stormtrooper named Finn, an independent scavenger called Rey, and Poe Dameron who is a Resistance X-Wing pilot.
