Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 Review

So the latest episode of Game Of Thrones has just gone to air and yes, there will be spoilers in this post episode review. Please watch the episode first before reading this review.

After coming out of last week’s big battle heavy episode, this episode starts to look at the aftermath of the battle. Early on in the episode the characters need to dispose of the dead and this includes brave characters like Jorah who passed away during last week’s battle. It’s a sad time and many of the characters are still dealing with the deaths of their friends. But probably, the loss of Jorah has taken the largest impact on Daenerys than anyone else.

In the next section of the episode, we see things change a little during a post funeral party scene. Daenerys makes a point of appointing Gendry to a position of power, which is her right to do as a Queen. This scene shows us that characters are being rewarded for their loyalty and service in battle and Daenerys is the type of leader that does do that. In return, she points out that she keeps loyal people in loyal positions, which helps her to rule better.

But at this party scene, there’s a little more that goes on. Jon is celebrated by his peers and is even called a King at one point. We all know that for much of this season, there’s been tension between Daenerys and Jon about his true claim to the throne, which is stronger than her own. This continues to cause tension for actually this entire episode and we see Daenerys tell Jon not to go around telling people about it. People are already gravitating towards him as a ruler and a secret coming out like this will give them more reason to do so. This is the Game Of Thrones universe afterall and secrets don’t really get kept. We see people already gossiping about it, such as Tyrion and Varus and it’s probably not long now until everyone knows. Question is though, once this secret gets out what’s going to happen to Daenerys and her following?

There’s some sections towards the end of this episode that are very important. Daenerys at one point takes her ships and her two dragons out to sea and gets ambushed by Euron and his fleet. One of the dragons (not sure which while writing this review) gets shot down and killed rather quickly. It’s a complete shock and a massive loss for Daenerys. Her fleet of ships is also destroyed and Missandei gets captured. It’s possible that Daenerys and the rest didn’t think that Cersei and her forces had the ability to kill a dragon, but we know that Jaime did know because he had the weapon when he fought them long ago, as I remember his army getting destroyed by the dragons and him trying to use that weapon during that battle. It’s logical that the Lannister’s would have many of those weapons by now made. Jaime could have warned Jon or Tyrion or anyone, but he didn’t. Then he left in the episode to go back to Cersei. I do wonder, if it was this that he intended for the entire time, or if he just switched sides when he saw things turning.

The final scenes of this episode see Daenerys and Tyrion come face to face with Cersei and Euron. Missandei is at the castle as a prisoner and Daenerys is there with her small force and her last dragon. I thought, watching this episode, that if this is all Daenerys has left of her forces, then she really doesn’t have much. There’s no way they could win that siege like that. In the end, Tyrion just tried to bargain for Cersei to surrender and for Missandei to get returned. But, it was hopeless, Cersei doesn’t listen and Missandei was killed. It didn’t come as a surprise to me, you would be mad to surrender to a force of that size and having just killed a dragon, Cersei and the rest are pretty confident.

For the first time in a long time, after the events of this episode and the deaths of Daenerys’ closest supporters like Jorah, Missandei and another dragon. It seems to me that Daenerys has become significantly weakened lately. The rumour of Jon’s secret getting out is also a substantial threat to her and it will be interesting to see how things go for this character in the coming weeks.

The strength of Cersei and Euron is that they came prepared. They did not underestimate Daenerys at all, they were incredibly well prepared. Next week’s episode will definitely be very interesting.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 Review

Sansa Stark

So the latest episode of Game Of Thrones has just gone to air and just to let you know now, there will be spoilers in this post episode review and discussion.

In this episode we witnessed the conclusion of the long running storyline about the Night King vs everyone else. For the most part this episode was mostly action based. There was little in it to further the plot much, except for right at the end when Arya came out of nowhere and killed the Night King. I quite liked this and it did surprise me at the end seeing Arya jump out in the way that she did. We do know it was their plan originally to use Bran as bait so they could lure the Night King there, but as we saw in the episode before this moment, much of that plan didn’t really work out.

With much of the episode being an action based one, I felt that what was shown of the battle was excellent. In many ways the battle scenes had movie like production quality with soldiers fighting the dead and dragons flying high in the sky burning the dead armies from above.

Much of the scenes were very dark though and it was hard to get a sense of scale and later in the episode there was a snow storm which further limited vision. These things made the episode feel quite tense for the viewer, but I also felt they were done to minimise the scale for what is a large battle for a single episode of TV with a production budget to meet.

The cgi was good yet again and the dragons were the highlights of the show. I’ve been wanting to see a dragon battle for some time and this episode delivered that.

Overall this was quite a good action based episode, which more than delivered on the action based experience. The end of the plot featuring the Night King and his dead people is nice to see and the best moment was right after Arya jumped out and got him for good. Many will be sad about some of the favoured characters falling in battle here, but they all died well and it’s not so bad in the end. I am looking forward to seeing how next week’s episode goes and how our characters move on from this.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Review

Spoilers Below: Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Review

So the second episode of Game Of Thrones season 8 has just gone to air and yes, there will be spoilers in this review and post episode discussion. Please watch the episode before reading this review.

Coming out of last week’s episode, I was quite keen to see the second episode of the show this week. Last week we saw the beginning of what I think is some tension between Jon and Daenerys about who will rule on the iron thrones in the future. Last week we also learnt about the birth of Jon Snow, which gives him a claim to the iron throne. This week we see a little of this continue. John tells Daenerys about this and while I think this is quite foolish considering his position and her position in the world, he trusts Daenerys and tells her anyway. They end up getting interrupted by the battle, but I know that Daenerys isn’t pleased with this information, it goes against her goals and makes Jon a direct threat.

We also see in this episode a conversation between Daenerys and Sansa where the two try to forgive each other for their awkwardness last week. Towards the end of the conversation Sansa and Daenerys didn’t really get anywhere in the end, with the talk ending on the point of what will happen after the war with the dead. I think going forward with this season, the main tensions will be about who will rule the iron throne between Daenerys and Jon. But for now the characters will work together to fight the dead and by looking at the trailer for the next episode today, it looks like this will be what next week’s episode will be about.

There were a lot of development this week for Jaime Lannister. The start of this episode had the character on trial and Sansa and Daenerys were figuring out what to do with him. In this scene I felt that it seemed like in this setting that Sansa was more in control of the room, even though it is probably Daenerys who is supposed to be.

Overall the episode was quite good for Jaime and he was welcomed back in rather quickly by the majority of characters in the show. I enjoyed seeing Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage act alongside one another again, with the two sharing quite a bit of screen time this week.

Much of the rest of the episode was a little gloomy. They’re all in that castle waiting for the dead to come and attack them and there doesn’t really seem to be a character that is motivating everyone to fight. They all seem rather worried about it all. Most of them go to sleep, others stay up and drink, Brienne gets made into a knight and Arya has sex with Gendry. The Arya scene was probably the most surprising out of this, especially since the character was basically a kid for much of the series. Having not known how old she was or how old she is I tried to search it on Google and it seems everyone else is as well, just look at the top Google search results below. I have done some research and found out she’s 18 now.

Overall, I found this episode to be quite good. While it was a little gloomy to see the everyone just sit around and wait for battle, it was also nice seeing them all sit around and chat with one another. It’s great to see Jaime get accepted into the group and I am keen to see what happens between Jon and Daenerys next week.
