Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 (spoilers)

Very much a getting ready for the big battle episode. A lot of people are going to die next week I’d say. Key points are:

  • Dany not happy with Jaime for killing her father (the Mad King). Brienne vouches for him and saves him.
  • Dany tells Tyrion he is a traitor or a fool for being taken in by Cersei.
  • Arya flits with Gendry by showing off her knife throwing skills
  • Jaime apologies to Bran for what he did to him. Bran says he didn’t tell others what he did, as Jaime can’t fight for them if he is murdered.
  • Tyrion muses that if he is made into undead at least Cersei won’t get to murder him and he might get to rip her apart as a wight.
  • Jaime offers to fight under Brienne’s command
  • Sir Jorah vouches for Tyrion and says he should remain Hand and that Tyrion learns from his mistakes. Sansa vouches for him also.
  • Lots of dragonglass weapons being forged
  • Dany tells Sansa she loves Jon
  • Theon turns up and is welcomed saying his is here to fight for Winterfell. Sansa hugs him overwhelmed. He offers to guard Bran from the Night King.
  • Tormund turns up also and crushes Jon in a bearhug
  • Jon says they can only win by killing the Night King. They think he will never expose himself but Bran says he will – he will come for Bran. Theon says he took this castle from Bran so know will defend him.
  • Great sledge of Sam – “Samwell Tarly, slayer of white walkers, romancer of women – as if we need any more signs the world is ending”
  • Great Tyrion quote “I wish Dad was here … so he could see both his sons about to die defending Winterfell”
  • A legendary drinking session with many main characters on the eve of battle
  • Gendry tells Arya he is Robert’s bastard son. Arya says she wants to know “what it is like” before she dies and they do the deed.
  • Jaime knights Brienne. Great scene. Sadly means she probably dies as having now achieved her great aim.
  • The women and children will hide in the crypts during the battle. Except Lyanna Mormont of course. There have been lots of clues that there is something significant in the crypts
  • Sam gives Jonah his sword saying his father taught him how to be a man
  • We finally see Ghost again, but sadly not eating anyone
  • Finally Jon tells Dany he is actually Aegon Targaryen. She is more worried he has a claim to the Iron Throne that the fact she is doing her nephew.
  • The episode ends with the arrival of the Army of the Dead
