Game of Thrones’ Promise to be Unmissable
It makes no difference how fans watch Game of Thrones, yet the next episode of the gripping season promises to be unmissable. The promo of the next episode teases that plenty of drama is in-store for a number of characters.
Jaime Lannister made it to Winterfell in episode 1 of the game of thrones season 8, and he’s seen once again in the episode 2 promo.
Daenerys Targaryen sat behind the table in Winterfell as she prepared to question the Lannister family member.
As Sansa Stark, Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister among others watch on, Daenerys says –
“When I was a child, my brother would tell me a bedtime story…about the man who murdered my father.”
“And all the things that we would do to that man.”
Game of Thrones Season 8: The End Isn’t too Far
With just 5 more Game of Thrones Episodes left in the series, the end of GoT Season 8 will never feel closer than this upcoming Sunday when fans watch the 2nd episode of the season 8 of the series. Not just is it the final nerve-shivering episode before the Great Battle of Winterfell in Episode 3 of the season, But it will be the last GoT episode that falls squarely within the show’s average run time of about hour-long.
Episode 1, which was titled “Winterfell,” clocked in at 54 minutes, and the unnamed Episode 2 is currently said to be around 48 minutes long. Thereafter, each of the final four episodes will hover around 80-minute mark, which is the same length of the last season’s finale “The Dragon and the Wolf.”
Episode 3 is anticipated to be the longest ever at 1 hour and 22 minutes, the title of which isn’t public by far.
Each of those four last episodes of Game of Thrones Season 8 will feel closer to a movie than an episode on television, and also they will have more ground to cover than that of usual for wrapping up the story.
What the Episode 2’s Preview Shows?
Depending on the preview of episode 2, it looks like about the complete episode will take place in Winterfell, centring around heavily on Daenerys Targaryen convicting Jaime Lannister of his so many crimes he had committed in the past.
The tensions also raise between the mother of dragons (Dany) and the lady of Winterfell (Sansa Stark). In the meantime, Tormund Giantsbane makes it back to Jon Snow in Winterfell, presumably with Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch Eddison Tollet as well as Beric Dondarrion.
One brief clip shows Jorah Mormont getting what looks like the Valyrian steel sword which is the Heartsbane from Samwell Tarly.
However, not featured in the teaser is Theon Greyjoy. Depending on his mini adventure in Episode 1, Greyjoy is also heading towards Winterfell to help make a stand with Jon and co.
In the meantime, his sister Yara Greyjoy looked to be heading back to the Iron Islands, a place where she plans to reclaim her home from her evil uncle, Euron. Considering this works perfectly, the islands could offer a nice backup plan in case the Night King prevails at the Battle of Winterfell as White Walkers can’t swim.
Game of Thrones Setting Up the Iron Islands
It seems like Game of Thrones is setting up the Iron Islands for playing a significant role in Season 8. However, we do not anticipate hearing much about that part of Westeros for the upcoming episodes of the final season.
Consequently, everything in GoT Season 8, Episode 2 will centre entirely on everyone at Winterfell preparing themselves for the invasion of the Night King’s army. It will surely be the commencement of the end.
Well, that’s not the thing to be noticed. Jon Snow’s Dragon Ride in GoT’s final season too has a deeper meaning.
One among the many awkward moments in Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere took place after Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow rode atop one of Dany’s two surviving dragons. The escalating couple decided to make out near a scenic waterfall, and the two giant monsters began in the same way that pets do when their owners engage in some PDA. Beyond the obvious truth which Jon Snow is actually a Targaryen and so worthy of riding a dragon, he may have a much deeper connection to his new mount in this sequence. It may even explain why one of the two dragons almost looked like it was smiling.
