Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: Thoughts

[Contains Spoilers]
The credit sequence gave me chills because there would be no more of Game of Thrones. George RR Martin had said that the ending was going to be bittersweet and it already started to feel like it. They still show Last Hearth in the credit sequence, which nobody knows why. Winterfell is still in ruins and this time, so is King's Landing. We start the episode with Tyrion walking the streets of King's Landing gingerly, looking at all the destruction that Dany has brought to the city. It's started snowing or it is still raining ash. Behind him are Davos and Jon. At a point, Tyrion leaves them to go somewhere on his own. Davos and Jon find Grey Worm and the Unsullied executing the remaining five Lannister soldiers. Jon tries to stop Grey Worm and the situation gets very tense and it looks like the allied forces are not allied anymore. Davos suggests they, him and Jon go speak to the Queen and they leave. 

We see Tyrion picking his way through more rubble. He wa…

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5: Thoughts

The"Previously On" is full of foreshadowing and I hear a lot of warning bells going off in my head.
The episode begins with Varys writing letters to people - the important people in the realm, I'm sure. I saw words like "Rhaegar Targaryen", "hidden by Eddard Stark" and "the true heir to the Iron Throne". Not good news for Dany. He is interrupted by a knock on the door. He quickly hides what he's writing but it's obvious it's someone he knows because he just hides it, not destroys it and it's the same girl he was with down in the Winterfell crypts and she tells him that Dany isn't eating and he tells her, "we'll wait till supper". Varys is obviously onto something. He definitely looks to be conspiring to poison Dany because the little girl talks about the reward being great for the great risk. Varys seems like a strange person but we can see why he's a great spider because of the way he…

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4: Thoughts

I had seen the leaked scenes of the episode the night before....the important scenes, the heartbreaking ones and I had gone to bed disturbed, not looking forward to watching episode 4 at all.

Anyways, so the episode opens with funeral pyres - several of them. We begin with Dany saying her goodbye to dead Jorah which was sad but meh (then she leans over to whisper something to his dead ears). Next we have Sansa sobbing over Theon’s body and that stuff got me, especially when she took off her Stark sigil and pinned it on Theon. I got goosebumps then. Theon died at home as a Stark. Finally. We see the survivors gathered in front of Winterfell to pay respect to the fallen. We see injured Ghost - everyone is injured. Then Jon gives a speech on how the dead were “the shield that guarded the realm of men”. It honestly felt flat and redundant for me. First time it was great, second time it was good but after a number of times, it has lost its charm on me. We now see several…

I really thought my entire episode reaction was going to go something like, *battle*battle*someone dies oh no*battle*battle*someone dies oh no*battle*battle*and on and on. How wrong I was. 

The title of the episode is called The Long Night. It is a long ass episode. This will be a long ass blog. 

We start the episode with Sam representing all of us: nervous as fuck. Everyone is sort of preparing for the Great War. Everyone is going to their designated spots: the crypt, the Godswood, outside the gate, over the hill overlooking Winterfell. Dragon glass daggers are shoved into Sam’s trembling hands and he has to be ready, whether he is ready or not. Little Lyanna is in command while Tyrion grabs a bag of something looking at Bran being wheeled off to the Godswood. When I was watching it on TV, I really didn’t see the Weirwood, but I assumed that’s where he was being taken to. Everyone is nervously waiting at the wall, including Ser Davos and the Stark girls. The dragons …
