Everything you need to know about Game of Thrones Season 8
The final piece of HBO’s epic hit series, here’s quick rundown of everything you need to know before you watch Game of Thrones Season 8. The most shattering reveal of Season 7 came in the finale, confirming one of the longest-held theories in all of Game of Thrones fandom.
About Jon Snow and Targaryen
Jon Snow in not, it turns out, the bastard son of Ned Stark.
He’s actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, which makes him the rightful-ish heir to the Iron Throne. As his sister Lyanna was close to death due to childbirth complications. Ned promised to keep her secret at all costs, lying about Jon’s parentage to protect his identity.
Not even Jon knows he’s a Targaryen, which is why, in true GoT fashion. This reveal was intercut with shots of Jon making out with Daenerys Targaryen, his secret aunt. Suprisingly, that’s not the most shocking thing about the scene. Instead, it’s the ramifications of Jon having both Targaryen and Stark blood coursing through his veins.
As we learned from the Three-Eyed Raven, Jon’s a walking, talking one-man song of ice and fire with roots that go back to Robert’s Rebellion. The big brawl in Westeros that predates the events of the series.
Robert Baratheon cut down Rhaegar on the battlefield and seized the Iron Throne. Settig into motion the narrative we’ve been following for seven seasons. But it was all based on a lie. When Lyanna left Robert to run off with Rhaegar, the story throughout the Seven Kingdoms was that she was kidnapped. In reality, though, it seems Rhaegar and Lyanna were deeply in love. Marrying in secret just before they meet their ultimate fates.
About White Walkers and Night King:
Game of Thrones has used “Winter is coming” as its ominous tagline since 2011. Season 7 finally delivered on that promise. As the end of the season, we see the undead army of White Walkers on horseback advancing on the Kingdoms. The woefully outmatched remnants of the free folk and the Night’s Watch helplessly watch as the Night King flexes on the realms of men by having his new ice dragon huff, puff, and blow the Wall down.
That’s right: the Night King has resurrected an undead, unkillable dragon as the deadliest weapon his considerable arsenal. So what’s the deal with the ice zombies? The Night King’s true motives aren’t yet known, but we know he’s extremely powerful and can control the entire army with a sort of telepathy. Fire can destroy the wights, but only dragon fire, dragonglass, and Valyrian steel can kill White Walkers.
How the Night King May Finally Be Stopped ?
Samwell Tarly has descovered that Dragonstone. The historical seat of House Targaryen, is sitting on a mountain of dragonglass, and Jon Snow and his men have been mining it and turning it into weapons in preparation ever since.
As for the Night King, it’s unclear if anything can stop him.
In the third episode of season 7, Bran tries to describe the Grennsight for his sister Sansa, telling her that it allows him to see everything, everywhere, all at once, and also that he can’t be lord of Winterfell because he’s actually a raven. Or something like that. “It’s difficult to explain.”Bear with us for a moment. After nearly being killed back in Season 1. Bran has visions, and those visions psychically summoned him to meet the Three-Eyed Raven north of the Wall. While it’s never been officially confirmed on the show, it’s implied that the Three-Eyed Raven Bran meets is Bryden Rivers, a former commander of the Night’s Watch. He was killed by the Night King in season 6, though, leaving Bran the last green-seer and the new Three-Eyed Raven.
The scope and purpose of Bran’s new powers are yet to be revealed, but any sequence of events that complicated is undoubtdedly going to play a big part in season 8’s storyline.
In season 7, the Stark kids have reunited in Winterfell. Bran’s been beyond the Wall in search of the Three-Eyed Raven.
Arya has been training to become the perfect assassin with the Faceless Men before being forced to escape their clutches. Sansa, however, hasn’t been up to anything nearly as cool. Sansa used as a pawn for years, first by the Lannisters and then in Littlefinger’s ongoing machinations. By the time she becomes the Lady of Winterfell, finally emerging as the master manipulator instead of the manipulated pawn, all three remaining Stark children have been forever transformed. Bran, dealing with the burden of near omnipotence, has difficulty relating to his sisters on a human level. Arya and Sansa are suspicious of each other’s motivations.
Who can blame them for having trust issues?
Just when it seemed the Stark sisters would succumb to paranoia and suspicion, they got their act together and teamed up against their true foe, Littlefinger himself, Lord Petyr Baelish. When Sansa called Arya to the Great Hall at Littlefinger’s request, it seemed as though she was going to accuse her sister. But then, when Sanas levels her charges of murder and treason, we got the swerve. “How do you answer these charges.. Lord Baelish?”
Baelish believed he’d driven a wedge between the Stark sisters, but he wasn’t counting on bran filling in the blank parts of the story that caused the division between Arya and Sansa.
Queen of the Seven Kingdoms
The meeting of the heaviest hitters in the Seven Kingdoms in the ruins of the Dragonpit at King’s Landing in the season 7 finale gave the audience a taste of where everyone stands in the final stretch of the great game. Cersei, Jaime, and Tyrion Lannister, Euron Greyjoy, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, a dragon, a White Walker, all the major players and key elements in the struggle for the future of Westeros were front and center in one of the most intense non-battle sequences in the series.
Jon and Dany hoped to persuade the Lannisters to at least temporarily call a truce and focus on the true enemy, the Night King and his army of White Walkers Cersei, shaken by the exhibition, agrees to the proposed truce on the condition that Jon won’t take up arms against the Lannisters.
Alas, Jon Snow cannot tell a lie, he rejects Cersei’s offer, saying that he can’t serve two queens, seemingly spoiling any chance of a true and a united force to stand against the Night King.
In Tyrion‘s last interaction with Queen Cersei, in which he hopes to convince her to take up arms the undead army bearing down from the North, he gets sidetracked by daring Cersei to kill him.
“I’m about to step into a room with the most murderous woman in the world who’s already tried to kill me twice, that I know of. Who’s an idiot?”
This is not exactly an uncommon outcome of the Lannister siblings’ conversations, but this time it ends when Tyrion breaks the tense moment by downing several glasses of wine, another common outcome. As he attempts to find common ground with his sister as the Hand of her rival queen, Cersei reveals that her family is her only concern, and it dawns on Tyrion that Cersei is pregnant.
Following this conversation, Cersei abruptly declares that she’ll send her armies north to meet the White Walker threat, and admonishes Tyrion to “remember my kindness.” Of course, that kindness comes with a nefarious plan. Cersei reveals to Jamie, her brother and the father to her unborn child, because that’s just how Westeros rolls, that she has conspired with Euron Greyjoy. Instead of retreating to the Iron Islands as he’s led everyone to believe, he’s actually sailing to Essos to retrieve the Golden Company: 20,000 mercenary soldiers poised to seize and control Westeros while the armies of the Seven Kingdoms kill themselves in the North.
Jamie, however, sees the reality of the White Walkers’ threat, and wants nothing to do with Cersei’s double-cross. With Jaime leaving Cersei’s side knowing the truth of her plan, it should be interesting to see what he does with this information in season 8.
He is driven, more than anything, by his desire to keep the Seven Kingdoms safe for Cersei and his unborn child. In order to do this, he’s got to take up arms against her cause. The audience last sees Jaime in season 7 riding into the unknown as the winter’s first snowfall begins in King’s Landing.
