Episode 5 of Game of Thrones Season 8 was one of the most intense episodes of Game of Thrones, we’ve ever gotten Ned Stark’s execution and the Red Wedding, we’re nothing compared to how intense episode 5 was. And I got to say I enjoyed a majority of it and I was surprised a few times especially with Jaime but I will save my thoughts for the episode review on a secondary post.
However, I will say this here now for those of you who died this episode actual name characters not background extras you guys had some good send offs all with the exception of one person and I don’t even need to tell you guys who the fuck I’m talking about that was so dumb but for now let’s focus on the final preview the final episode preview actually.
I must say it is bittersweet following this show for almost ten years but this is it the final episode. The preview with John Dallas and Tyrion walking through the remains of King’s Landing and I got to say the set for this episode was OnPoint destruction and chaos everywhere and they did it beautifully at first throughout the preview. I was wondering oh it’s snowing again but no that’s actually ash raining down.
Now, I’m kind of confused in the whole let’s burn the city down shtick she’s going for here. See, I really do feel like an asshole. I also don’t understand the point of continuously firing on the city like what was that gonna accomplish as well as the Dothraki charging in there and killing indiscriminately but whatever I want to say that perhaps Danny gave the order to kill them all regardless of the bells because Tyrion kept rambling on about the bells to her and I’m thinking she lightly gave the orders about the bells you know to her their allies and to ignore them and told them all to go crazy and just do whatever. we also see a shot of the red keep still intact but I’m sure the roof of the throne room has collapsed.
If so, then it’s in line with the vision we saw in the house of the undying back in season two that Dany also saw where she walks through a destroyed throne room.
We then cut to Arya watching what appears to be a victory celebration and likely a speech from Danny as a dothraki and the unsullied gather around you can easily tell who the worst person and bad guy in the series is when Arya looks at them that way her Q rating for the show and a shout-out from Drake means that she’s top tier character status now for the series.
If Arya looks at a puppy like that you can bet that they wrote that puppy responsible for both the Holocaust and 9/11 and by the way I’m just gonna say this now the fact that aria has incredible plot armor annoys me so damn much!
At least with Jon Snow swords and arrows don’t harm him but Arya debris fire hordes of people stomping on her spine don’t even stop her. I wouldn’t be surprised if the last scene of this entire series is Arya getting a raven from Nick Fury about The Avengers initiative and next we have Tyrion who follows incautious and pissed off as a Dothraki all raised their weapons in a cheer.
While Dani walks in flanked by an Sully so, the imagery here is clear she burned them all just like her father the “Mad King” wanted I also need to call back to something Varys told alehna and about Littlefinger back in season 3 about how Littlefinger would see the country burn if he could be king in the ashes well it turns out that includes Daenerys as well I guess and once again I’m also getting ahead of myself but her snapping like that came out of nowhere.
One thing I’m curious about for them for the next episode is how she justifies killing innocent people how she just does how she justifies destroying a city that her ancestors built and how she justifies killing enemy soldiers for what their queen did it’s gonna be an interesting next episode.
I gotta say I didn’t expect Daenerys to be our final endgame boss our hidden boss if you will I was completely okay with a crazy pregnant woman and her pirate boyfriend being like the main villains but I guess you know I don’t know what to make of this if it’s irony cliche or bad writing that Daenerys turns out to be our final endgame villain if you will especially with the way Arya looked at her did you know she’s up for the Avengers initiative I don’t know. But let’s see.!

Reason Why Game of Thrones Season 8 has Failed According to Reddit
Reason Why Game of Thrones Season 8 has Failed According to Reddit: The TV series was founded on George RR Martin’s hugely successful A Song of Fire and Ice literary saga – and also its first few seasons were adaptations.
But as the series progressed, it started to overtake Martin’s job – and really, even now, the writer nevertheless has just two books left to write.
After the series began treading its path concerning storylines and character growth, that is when some enthusiasts have contended that it started to lose its way – and today Reddit consumer StillFlyingHalfAShip has submitted a well-received suggestion regarding how and why.
They explained: “It’s been pointed out by Youtuber ‘The Dragon Demands’ that D&D [showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss] seem to be fixated on close ups of the main actors emoting without dialogue.
“As the series progressed from GRRM’s material to their own this became more and more prevalent, with the absolute extreme scenario occurring in the final episode (which they directed). We see Tyrion looking at things, crying, shocked and saddened, all with barely any talking whatsoever.
“In ‘The Bells’ there was meant to be a 7-minute long take just following Arya and her reactions as the city is destroyed. The scenes will be full of Cersei smirks, Jon Snow brooding, Arya stares, Tyrion worried faces – so much time dedicated to moments with barely any dialogue at all.
“Why do you think everyone was raving about the acting this season? Don’t get me wrong, they’re all incredibly talented, but so much of the focus is on non-verbal emoting that all we have to talk about is the performances.”
They added: “So we come to the strange irony of the last few seasons… they would actually work better as a book than as a show.
“We can’t always figure out what’s going on in the character’s heads from performance alone. Sometimes we need dialogue and actions to help us out.
“If the internal monologue was written on a page it would be simple, but often it was impossible to tell what was going on.
“I point to season 7 episode 7 as an example. Jaime has just informed Cersei that he wishes to desert and ride to Winterfell. She looks at The Mountain as some sort of threat that she’ll unleash him against her brother(?).
“Jaime looks back at her horrified. Then she gives a kind of evil stare, he walks towards the mountain (I legit thought he was gonna die at this point) and then just walks past him and out the courtyard, with no consequence.
“If Cersei had said something I would better understand just what the hell Cersei & Ser Gregor were playing at.
“Despite not being adapted from book material, the later seasons are full of non-dialogue scenes where only a written internal monologue would let us know what the characters were thinking.”

Game of Thrones: We Can’t Discount Drogon Eating Daenerys Says Forensic Anthropologist
Game of Thrones: We Can’t Discount Drogon Eating Daenerys Says Forensic Anthropologist: While audiences are expecting Drogon was shooting Daenerys straight back to her ancestral home, a forensic specialist considers the dragon might have simply consumed her.
While it looks like everything was examined and rehashed concerning the Season 8 finale of HBO’s epic fantasy series, Game of Thrones, a forensic specialist has now entered the ring concerning the destiny of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).
SPOILER ALERT: This Report discusses the Last season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Please proceed with caution when you haven’t yet seen each the episodes in Season 8 and also want to prevent spoilers.
In the last installment of Game of Thrones, Daenerys maintained the iron throne but was murdered by her nephew and buff, Jon Snow (Kit Harington). He melted the iron cop with his passion prior to picking her up in his claws and flying off with her dead body.
It was shown near the end of the last incident that Daenerys had led east towards Volantis and Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) said he’d attempt to find the dragon.
Since that time, fans have speculated about why Drogon has been led in that way.
As mentioned previously by us, among those theories sees Drogon carrying Daenerys into Volantis to be able to possess her vaccinated with a reddish priestess. But, based on a meeting a forensic anthropologist did together with all the Huffington Post, there can be a more mundane ending for Daenerys’ body: Drogon could have eaten her.
“Might he eat her? Possibly, yes,” Dr. Carolyn Rando, a forensic anthropologist at the UCL Institute of Archaeology said.
“I don’t think we can discount that he was going off to eat her.”
But, how did Rando come to this conclusion?
There’s proof in the actual world that under certain conditions, creatures might be direct to eating their own owners. But a number of these situations arise from a pet being not able to depart a place after their owner dies and there are not any other food except to their proprietor.
Another motive sees creatures occasionally unintentionally getting mixed up into eating following licking or nudging their deceased owner as they attempt to work out exactly what’s happening — something which has been evidenced by Drogon at the last episode of Game of Thrones if he nudged Daenerys later Jon stabbed.
“So [the animal] tends to lick, and there’s a lot of blood and then eating might happen, but more out of just stress or something like that.”
Moreover, Rando also indicates that malnutrition may factor into this concept. In Season 8 Game of Thrones, Daenerys had said her dragons weren’t eating well. This was set down to the simple fact that dragons don’t deal well in the colder weather of the North. Therefore, after shooting Daenerys away, as Drogon attained a warmer place, it might have triggered an insatiable desire to eat .
But although it’s likely that Drogon ate Daenerys, Rando isn’t convinced that really occurred. Rather, she would rather believe that Drogon did not consume the Mother of Dragons and, rather, only flew off into the sunset together with Daenerys and had been only grieving the loss of his own mother.
Season 8 was the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. HBO is currently in production on a prequel series set in the same universe as Game of Thrones. However, no release date has yet been announced for this new series.
Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams wants to Write a Story on the Friendship
Everybody knows that Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner (played Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (played Arya Stark) has a strong bond from the beginning.
In a new video from Vogue Paris, in which Turner eats dinner with her Dark Phoenix costar Jessica Chastain, the 23-year-old actress shared her future career ambitions, saying that one day she’d like to produce and direct.
“As an actor, you can only have so much creative control,” Turner told Chastain. “I want to be able to have full creative control and create my own vision and that’s something I’m quite passionate about.”
Sophie mentioned that she would like to work again with her Game of Thrones costar and BFF Maisie Williams in future. Both played as a sisters Sansa and Arya Stark respectively, throughout the all eight seasons of HBO’s Game of Thrones.
“My best friend Maisie, she and I have a very intense friendship, a friendship that I haven’t had with any of my other girlfriends before,” Turner shared. “We felt like we wanted to write a movie about a friendship where it’s kind of like you’re soulmates, but you’re friends and it’s like this beautiful connection but it can also be quite destructive.”
Though Turner said the duo hasn’t started writing the movie just yet, she revealed she’s begun preparing for the moment they do.
“I bought a screenplay writing book!” Turner told Chastain. “To teach myself. Because I can’t write well, but I want to. But I’m just not talented enough.”
“You are talented enough!” Chastain replied supportively.
Turner and Williams’ friendship has been well-documented over the years, as the two grew up together on the set of Game of Thrones. The pair even has matching tattoos commemorating the date they were both cast on the show.
In April, Turner — who recently tied the knot with Joe Jonas in a Vegas wedding — shared that Williams will be her maid of honor at the couple’s larger ceremony this summer. “I don’t know why she’s thinking about [what she’s wearing to my wedding]. I’m giving her the bridesmaid dress!” Turner said to Entertainment Tonight after she found out Williams had told the outlet she was trying to pick out a dress.
“She’s my maid of honor! One of two,” Turner added.
“Maisie is definitely my protector and I’m hers, too,” Turner previously told Glamour UK. “I know if anything happened — especially if it was on Game of Thrones, which it never, ever would — she’d go crazy and protect me… Maisie is my strong home.”
In the same interview, Williams shared a similar sentiment about her costar.
“Sophie knows too much about me to not be my friend,” she shared. “I can’t tell you the amount of times Sophie said, ‘Go to therapy’ before I actually did. She really helped me through some messy break-ups and some friend break-ups. Whenever I’m like, ‘I need help! This is bigger than anything I can sort out on my own,’ Sophie is my point of call.”
