GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8 IS BACK!!!!! After a two year gap, our most-awaited show is back.
It premiered on 14th April 2019. The first episode of season 8 is very similar to the first episode of the entire series but instead of Robert Baratheon and Cersei Lannister, it was Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen were the ones to enter Winterfell.
Also, the scene where Arya Stark observes the royal arrival is pretty much similar to the first episode of season 1. The two episodes “Winterfell (S8)” and “Winter is coming (S1)” mirror each other.
“The pomp and majesty of Danny’s arrival just felt like the natural place to start the season,” David Benioff, executive producer and writer says. “It’s a whole new procession, and so instead of Robert arriving with Queen Cersei and Jamie Lannister and the Hound, it’s Daenerys coming with Jon Snow.”
Episode one has shown us that Sansa stark and the lords of Winterfell are not very happy with the new queen and her dragons. Jon is desperate for her sisters to like his lover, Daenerys.
While we see Bran Stark eyeing everyone as he sits in his wheelchair. Both the episodes end up in Bran and Jamie’s encounter. While in the recent episode Jamie feels decidedly guilty seeing bran in a wheelchair as a result of the fall from Jamie’s push.
Also, one of the highlights of the episode can be the one in which Samwell Tarly tells Jon about his true parentage, that is, Lynna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. Samwell inserts that Jon is the true Targaryen prince and rightful heir to the iron throne. He also reveals it to Jon that his true name is ‘Aegon Targaryen’.
Drogon eyes Jon while the two couples, Jon and Daenerys (who is also his Aunt), are making out. A new meme content for y’ all. The whole episode has been kind of a warm-up before the release of the next episodes.
Not a lot has been revealed about the next episodes but one thing is for sure we are going to be blessed by an enormous amount of violence and bloodshed. The Night king has already taken down the wall and is ready with his troops and Danny’s dragon to invade Winterfell.
Episode 2 of Season 8 is going to be released on 21st April at HBO. You can also watch it on Hotstar.
