It was impossible for major characters to escape death this time around, and we saw some of our favorite characters - Jon Snow, Daenarys, Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion and Varys - confronted with new challenges that push them to the brink. There are major callbacks to previous seasons, showdowns we've been waiting for (Clegane Bowl), and hints for the season finale.

  • This is the least insightful GoT video I've ever seen. Also, showing the shadow of a dragon on Kings Landing isn't foreshadowing, unless you were trying for a stupid joke. Remind me not to watch your videos.

  • CAMERA MAN at 3:52 with his hand and camera on the left side. I guess it's not just the Directors, Writers, and Producers who gave up on Kings Landing with Deny. But also Editors all gave up, too and BURNED THEM ALL GOT Season 8 Episode 5...

    Tesfa TWLTesfa TWL6 days ago

  • Yeah, You missed explaining why it was that there was green flames t/o the city as drogon burned it. Was this cersies plan, was it just stored up dragons fire? Was it a military tactic in case the red keeps walls were breached , to "burn them all" . Did dany really save Jon & greyworm from being burned up by the dragons fire if so?

    Daniel IngramDaniel Ingram6 days ago
  • The whole time when drogon burning the kings landing, we never seen dany’s face or presence. Maybe she’s trying to stop drogon. Drogon got mad when he heard the ring of the bell. Hahahhaahhaha

It is difficult ,he is well aware it may take his life ,people may hate him but he is the honorable and selfless man Westeros may never deserve.From outside it may look dumb but it takes courage and pain to stay honorable all the time !!!!

    simon2077simon20776 days ago
  • Good review. Varys and his several messages I often wondered how many crows ever got to see. If the series was perhaps expanded longer perhaps they could have covered it. Three things come to mind, the Red Witch in Maureen that said they would help Daey, but it never happened & although the Stannis Red Witch did help against the Whites. The prophecy of Bran Flying never happened. The Shame Lady or the Doern Women in their cells shown their final doom (I guess to be assumed happened?).
