It's been a week since Game of Thrones concluded its seventh and penultimate season with a Wall-shattering finale and already we are clamoring for Season 8.

Sadly, it could be a long wait for the next return of the HBO fantasy drama, but, until then, there's still plenty to dissect and debate about the just-concluded Season 7.

For example, there's the moral quandary of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) hooking up, despite being related (albeit unbeknownst to them). There's also the cliffhanger of the great Wall coming down, at the hands of an undead Viserion and the Night King. Will Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) and her subjects in the Seven Kingdoms ever be safe again now that the White Walkers have penetrated the barrier keeping them out?

A lively discussion to be had around any dinner table now that Season 7 is complete is: What were the best moments?

To get the conversation started, Newsweek presents its seven best moments from Season 7.

Narrowing down the season's top scenes to just a handful was hard work and, thus, sadly some moments narrowly missed the list. So, here's an honorable mention to Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) and the Hound (Rory McCann) talking about Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in "Beyond the Wall." Tormund's "You do know her" might be the line of the season.

Arya kills all the Freys
Just when you thought Arya Stark's (Maisie Williams) revenge on Walder Frey (David Bradley) in the Season 6 finale—carving up his sons and delivering them to him in the form of a pie—was twisted, she took it a step further in the opening scene of Season 7. Arya, wearing Walder's face as a mask, invited the entire Frey clan to dinner and promptly poisoned them as revenge for their part in the Red Wedding in which her mother, brother and sister-in-law were murdered. Points for creativity, Arya.Helen Sloan/HBO
Cersei's revenge on Ellaria and Tyene
There was poetic heartbreak in this scene from "The Queen's Justice," when, as revenge for the death of her daughter Myrcella, Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) chained mother-and-daughter Ellaria (Indira Varma) and Tyene Sand (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers) and poisoned the latter. Ellaria's punishment would be to watch her daughter die and decompose in front of her, unable to do anything to help her. Varma's utterly agonized performance made this one of the season's most powerful moments.Helen Sloan/HBO
Lady Olenna's dying confession
"Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me." Take a bow, Dame Diana Rigg. Lady Olenna Tyrell had the greatest exit scene in 'GoT' Season 7 and perhaps the greatest exit scene in the show's history when she brazenly admitted to having King Joffrey killed and told his father, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), to ensure his mother Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) knew it was her handiwork.

The Loot Train Attack
"Dracarys!" With a one-word command to her dragon, Drogon, would-be queen Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) changed the rules of war in the Seven Kingdoms forever. For the first time we saw Dany use her dragons in the war for Westeros and, as Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his troops found out, when you have a dragon, no amount of swords and arrows can compete.HBO
Viserion dies and is reborn
Seven seasons of watching Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) dragons grow from little babies to full-grown beasts, 'GoT' viewers have grown as attached to Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal as the human characters. So when Viserion was struck down by the Night King in "Beyond the Wall," our hearts broke. Then, of course, there was a moment of "uh-oh" when he was resurrected as a wight by the lord of the dead. Game changed.HBO
Littlefinger dies
After seven seasons of scheming and betrayal, Petyr Baelish, a.k.a. Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), finally got his comeuppance in the Season 7 finale. All his lies caught up with him and the Stark sisters delivered swift justice for their family: Sansa (Sophie Turner) ordered his death and Arya (Maisie Williams) happily executed him.Helen Sloan/HBO
Daenerys and Jon get it on
So wrong it was right, seeing Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) make hot, sweaty Targaryen love was enough to make the most sane person root for this incestuous romance a little bit. Dany and Jon's steamy boat scene in the season finale marked the Seven Kingdom's most powerful union. One that is sure to come crashing down in Season 8 when they find out they're related.HBO
