If you watch Game of Thrones and have it on your DVR for tonight, STOP READING. If you don’t watch Game of Thrones but want to be able to have a conversation with everyone at work who does, this is the summary your life needs.
Season 8, Ep. 2:
Jamie is in Winterfell, the Mother of Dragons and Sansa don’t trust him and they’re mad about his sister Cersei not bring her armies to the fight. Jamie says “Sorry I’m not sorry” for killing your dad and Bran no hard feelings for pushing you out the window. Tyrion and Lady Brienne vouch for him and all is forgiven.
Things are heating up between Arya and the Gendry the blacksmith, who is also the illegitimate Baratheon kid. Theon Greyjoy returns to Winterfell and pledges his sword to Sansa, I know that sounds dirty but it’s not. Arya and the blacksmith have one of those “This could be our last night on earth” hook ups because the Night King and his army are close. Here’s the thing, remember Gendry had his blood tested by the Red Witch, but do we really know why. Will this little “brown chicken brown cow” moment lead to a baby that will have an impact on who sits on the Iron Throne?
Back to the war that’s coming, Jon knows they’re out numbered and think the best way is to go after the Night King. They think if he falls, they all fall. So, the plan is to use Bran as bait by the Weirwood tree. Lady Brienne gets knighted but you know she’s still making less than the male nights and just before the end credits Jon Snow says to Daenerys, “Oh hey, by the way, I’m Aegon Targaryen and the true air to the throne….just as she’s getting mad about it the Night King shows up…..and scene….next week the battle begins.
And just to get you worked up into more of a frenzy…..HBO released a trailer for the big battle coming in Episode 3….I’M NOT READY!!
