Season 8 Episode 02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

• April 22nd, 2019

Jaime is more or less put on trial for murdering Daenerys' father, but Brienne vouches for him, and Sansa says 'as long as we got a voucher'. Jaime later apologizes to Bran for pushing him out the window, but Bran says 'whatevs'. Tyrion is in the doghouse with Daenerys for being outsmarted by Cersei, but Jorah vouches for him. Daenerys tries to bond with Sansa over their mutual affection for for Jon, but blows it by not answering Sansa's question about the North's independence. Theon, Edd, Tormund, and Beric all show up. A war council convenes and agree to Bran's plan in which he will act as bait to lure the Night King to the Godswood. Gendry finishes a not-all-that-special weapon for Arya, who then has her way with him. Tyrion, Jaime, Davos, Brienne, Podrick, and Tormund drink together, and in a moving scene Jaime knights Brienne. Jorah fails to dissuade Lyanna Mormont from fighting and is gifted with Hart's Bane by Samwell. Daenerys finds Jon at Lyanna Stark's tomb and he gives her the lowdown about his lineage and claim to the Iron Throne. Then the dead arrive.

• September 3rd, 2017

Almost all the major players converge on the dragon pit to negotiate an armistice. The hound opens up the wight's crate, who is shy at first, then lunges for Cersei's face.  Euron pretends to bow out, and Cersei says she'll agree to help defeat the Night King if Jon promises to keep the North out of the eventual war for the Iron Throne.  Jon cannot tell a lie and says he's already bent the knee to Daenerys.  Cersei says fuck you then and storms off.  Tyrion risks his life by visiting Cersei on his own, and sensing she is pregnant, believes this will compel her to save the realm for her child's future.  They return the the Dragon Pit and she seems to agree to the armistice.  But she soon tells Jaime that was bullshit.  Jamie walks out on her and rides North on his own to join the good guys.  Theon manages to rally some fickle Iron Islanders into mounting a rescue of Yara.  At Winterfell Sansa and Arya reveal all the brewing tension between them was part of a trap for Littlefinger.  The trap is sprung, Sansa throws all his bullshit back in his face and Arya slices his throat with his Valyrian steel dagger.  He dies grovelling in front of all the gathered lords and knights.  Sam arrives at Winterfell, compares notes with Bran and they realize Jon Snow is actually Aegon Targaryen, the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.  This plays out in a montage of Jon and Dany getting it on.  At Eastwatch the Night King breaches the wall with super dragon-wight breath, allowing the Army of the Dead to march south.

Jon invites Daenerys to the dragonglass mine, where ancient cave paintings conveniently depict the First Men and the Children of the Forest joining forces against the white walkers.  Daenerys soon learns that capturing Casterly Rock gained them nothing and the Unsullied are stranded for the time being. Daenerys is pissed and says it's Dragon time, but Jon cautions her against proving herself to be as bad as the Westerosi rulers she purports to replace.  She goes ahead and unleashes the Dothraki horde on Jamie's forces, and opens up a serious can of whoopass, what with the Dragonbreath and the incenerating and slaughtering. Bronn wounds Drogon with a shot from the scorpion.  Jamie takes a chance to charge Daenerys with a lance while she's tending to Drogon, but almost takes a point-blank blast from Drogon.

Seven be praised, Game Of Thrones is back and so are we!  The new season kicks off with a killer cold open featuring Arya, followed by a lot of table setting.  We get a good look at where are the surviving major characters are and what their motivations are.  Jon, Sansa, Littlefinger, Tormund, Brienne and Pod at Castle Black.  Oh yeah, and Bran and Meera arrive there as well.  Bran's reunion with his siblings didn't make the cut this week, but surely we'll see that next time.  Cersei and Jamie have an uneasy discussion in the Queen's new map/courtyard, then enjoy an audience with Euron Greyjoy.  Sam spends an eternity cleaning chamber pots and sloshing stew for the maesters in Old Town, but finally sneaks a look at the restricted section. The episode closes out with Daenerys and her armada arriving at Dragonstone, on Westerosi soil at last.  Shall we begin?
