Who Will Take the Game of Thrones Throne?

Now that's more like it.

Many were happy that the pair got together, but others were left shocked over raunchy scene as they've seen the character grow up on-screen. The first two episodes have been light on action, although they brought us several key reunions and revelations, some of which will only complicate things going forward.

Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) was a sitting duck for his enemies, but Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) risked her good standing to come forward and vouch for him.

Cogman has penned many of Jaime and Brienne's most pivotal episodes, and you can feel the respect and understanding he has for the characters in every scene they share.

On April 14, just hours ahead of the season premiere, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who has hinted at a presidential run of her own, tweeted about her love for the show. This was, after all the end of the first act of the finale season and the prelude to the Biggest Battle Ever In The History Of Game Of Thrones TM. This also compromises her path to the Iron Throne, because technically Jon has a greater stake to it than she.

Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms", showed the defenders of Winterfell each preparing for the fight of their lives in different ways.

As was mentioned multiple times in "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms", the non-combatants will be sheltering in the crypts of Winterfell during the battle.

The cold war between Sansa and Daenerys was in full force.

Foreshadowing much? We are onto you "Game of Thrones".

If Jon didn't plan a timely intervention at Hardhome, the Night King would have a lot more people in his army.

That paled in significance to Jon telling Daenerys about his heritage, though.

Sam Tarly, who saved Jorah from greyscale, also gifted him the Tarly family Valyrian steel sword Heartsbane, which is capable of taking out White Walkers. Oh, and surprise, Ghost is back! And their army is set to be swelled even further by the Dothraki and the Unsullied who inevitably fall to them.

Carice Van Houten is confirmed to be in the final season, though.

Here we refer specifically the ominous crags that settled. Tyrion jokes that he could "march down to King's Landing and tear her apart" as an undead wight, following a loss against the Night King-it may be a little nod to Maggy the Frog's premonition that Cersei will be killed by the valonqar-the "little brother"-although unlikely". "I should have thanked you the moment you arrived", Sansa tells her.
