Monday is here. And so is another episode of Game of Thrones, Season 8!

After leaving us with a cliffhanger and a nail-biting preview last week, this week’s episode did not disappoint fans. Just like the reactions to the first episode, the excitement, this time, was uncontrollable, with netizens taking to social media to share their thoughts, opinions, and verdicts.

(Major spoiler alert! Read at your own risk.)


Ser Brienne of Tarth, Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

The scene which made all emotional was Brienne of Tarth receiving her knighthood from none other than Ser Jaime Lannister, as we bid adieu to the age-old tradition of only men becoming knights.


‘I’m No Jon Snow. My Name is Aegon Targaryen’

Jon Snow reveals his actual lineage to Dany (Daenerys Targaryen) and we don’t blame her for being shocked. It was really hard for us to (initially) believe too!


Arya Stark and Gandry Baratheon Finally Hit it off!

Like always, netizens were quick to meme this one out.



We are told, towards the end, that the dead will arrive by sunrise. This means we will get to see Battle of Winterfell soon! Fans also get to see a glimpse of the Knight King and his Army of the Dead in this episode.

True. This is last time we might see many of the Game of Thrones characters. As the makers never hesitate before killing a major character in the show.
