I won’t remind you again about spoilers, in future posts when you reach the dotted line and you haven’t watched it — it means spoilers below.

OK, as usual, I will start with the end. If you’ve seen GOT Season 8 trailer, the White Walker’s undead horse foot stepped on to Winterfell and with that — it is official! It is going to be EPIC! It’s the same final scene from the trailer for this episode. You anxiously felt the winter is coming near. It is here.

For this second episode, I felt that it wasn’t enough. I am calm, and it’s just not right. I wanted to be a fool like I did in the last episode. I want to ride that emotional rollercoaster which I had been riding all along. I also believe, it is an episode for us to “rest” and try to keep calm as the next episode might blow our minds. They building up that anticipation of what’s going to happen or maybe I just miss the dragons.

Did I ever tell you that I am obsessed with dragons after watching GOT? It is a magnificent creature. Majestic like hell! They’ve really done a freaking impossible one with the dragons in the series. Brilliant I tell you! I have never felt like this since Dungeons & Dragons though I have seen some dragons in some movies but never like this, never! It’s impossible for anyone to hate the dragons after watching them here.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of emotional scenes in this one, such as Arya’s last person to hang out other than the two old shits. Brienne was recognized to become what she deserves. Also, there’s a new song to put on repeat:

Did you notice the costumes in this episode? On word — Sansa. I don’t know how they did it but it’s working. All of it. She looks hot and fierce at the same time. They must’ve hired a bunch of talented designers in the crew. Oh man!

“The [Game of Thrones battles] I’ve done previously were generally from Jon’s perspective,” Sapochnik told Entertainment Weekly. “Here I’ve got 20-some cast members and everyone would like it to be their scene. That’s complicated because I find the best battle sequences are when you have a strong point of view. I keep thinking: ‘Whose story am I telling right now?’”

So for next week, let’s do a checklist of everyone involved in the Battle of Winterfell — we’ll cross on the urm, un-survived ones:

  • Jon Snow
  • Daenerys Targaryen
  • Tyrion Lannister
  • Sansa Stark
  • Arya Stark
  • Brandon Stark
  • Theon Greyjoy
  • Brienne of Tarth
  • Davos Seaworth
  • Samwell Tarly
  • Jorah Mormont
  • Sandor “The Hound” Clegane
  • the Night King

You’re welcome but uh, did you notice of the absent of Viserion? Well, have you read about this one popular theory suggesting the Night King could have a different strategy in mind? I don’t think the Night King is a fool either. Let’s just wait a week, shall we?

As always, here’s a preview to keep you occupied for a week:
