Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 Review: What to Expect?

Following the harrowing, fiery, penultimate episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday, HBO released a teaser trailer for the final episode of the series and its tone is predictably dark and ominous. This same scene continues to show Daenerys is cracking as she reflects on Jon's love for her.

As for the last prediction to be confirmed: Cersei asked if she'd be queen one day, and Maggy confirmed she would... Firstly, Jon Snow dying will secure her right to the throne since we know he's Aegon Targaryen - a fact that Sansa, Arya, Tyrion and Lord Varys know. It appears that Dany stands before him at her ancestral home.

Euron Greyjoy - This dude can't survive until the finale. The sight of the shadow of the dragon passing over King's Landing was straight from Bran's vision in House of the Undying. Dany sent Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) and the Unsullied to join the rest of the armies. After the Lannister army surrendered, Daenerys burnt King's Landing and likely the vast majority of its innocent inhabitants to bits. Cersei watches as her city crumbles. Many soldiers die during the battle as the flames continue to spread.

Indeed, the irony of Milano's "sex strike" did not fall of deaf ears. "Many Twitter users though roundly mocked the actress" idea. Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood had another extreme suggestion against abortion: mandatory vasectomies.


There's a time jump between when Jon and Dany leave Winterfell and when Jaime breaks things off with Brienne, and as such, any development Jaime and Brienne might have had as a couple is invisible. Jon looked like he was stuck in some bad dream. Daenerys, as of last week, had to stop existing, and The Mad Queen had to take her place. Many fans will probably be furious, but at least there were no coffee cups in sight (they would have burned anyway). According to Vox, in A Feast For Crow, a witch named Maggy The Frog is seen delivering a prophecy about Cersei becoming queen and having three children, which was shown in Game of Thrones as well.

Daenerys understands she needs advisors to guide her in building a strong following, but she doesn't trust them blindly and insists that they be honest with her.

The best moments from "The Bells" came courtesy of the Hound and Arya. The Hound arrives for his showdown with the Mountain. It's also not much of a fight considering The Hound's brother is a Frankenstein's monster and it runs on far too long. If so, they went out together, exactly as they should have. He dies believing he's mortally wounded Jaime. He did not kill her as many fans have predicted but tried in vain to lead her to safety but the way out of the Red Keep was blocked by rubble. It was the season's bloodiest and deadliest episode. On May 1, Redditor /u/throwaway5873421 shared a list of plot points covering damn near everything left in the series: who lives, who dies, and of course, who ends up on the Iron Throne. He saved her from being torn apart by a bear and gave her new armor and a Valyrian steel sword that she named "Oathkeeper" - a nod to his good deeds and her faith in him.
