16 details you might have missed in Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Published

on

The latest Game Of Thrones episode titled A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms aired last night, and it was an emotional episode. We got to see the characters bonding with each other on the eve of the war against the White Walkers. If the first episode had a lot of reunions, the latest one could be said to have had a lot of goodbyes as we are not sure how many people will survive the Battle of Winterfell.

As usual, the episode was filled with some exciting details and callbacks. You can also check our analysis of the first episode if you missed that. Without wasting any time, we’ll take a look at the details you might have missed in Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

1. Opening credits get updated

In the first episode, we saw an updated opening credits video, and it showed the damaged portion of the Wall and also took us to the Last Hearth for the first time, and we even got to see the interiors of Winterfell and The Red Keep. For the second episode, almost everything remains the same, except for two tiny details.

If you look closely, you will see that Last Hearth significant by blue tiles, which indicates that the castle has fallen. In the first episode, the blue tiles were approaching the Last Hearth and we know what happened by the end of the episode.

The second detail shows us the preparation that’s going on at Winterfell. In the new opening credits video, we can see trenches being dug all around Winterfell. We saw the same happening during the episode as everyone was working overtime to be fully prepared before the White Walkers arrive.

2. A reference to the Valonqar theory

The episode started with a trial being held for Jaime Lannister, and it seemed that things weren’t going well for him as almost everyone seemed to hate him, especially Daenerys as he was responsible for the death of her father. Tyrion tried to intervene, and Daenerys didn’t spare him as well. “Perhaps he trusts his little brother to defend him, right up to the moment he slits my throat,” said Daenerys when Tyrion tried to defend Jaime, and this line can be considered as a reference to the Valonqar prophecy.

Valonqar is the High Valyrian word for “little brother“, and this is what the prophecy says in the books, “And when your tears have drowned you, the Valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.”

The show had removed this part of the prophecy that was made by Maggy the Frog in season 5, during a flashback scene involving Cersei Lannister. Even though the prophecy isn’t related to Daenerys, the words that she spoke referred to it.

3. This goes beyond loyalty

Things weren’t going well for Jaime at the start of the episode. When he was asked why he was abandoning his family now to fight for the very people against whom he had been fighting all this time, Jaime looked towards Brienne before saying, “Because this goes beyond loyalty. This is about survival.”

This line by Jaime was a direct reference to the scene involving Jaime and Brienne from the season 7 finale, when Brienne told Jaime, “Oh f*ck loyalty. This goes beyond houses and honour and oaths. Talk to the queen.

4. Widow’s Wail

Brienne came to defend Jaime Lannister and thanks to her, Jaime’s trial came to an end, and that’s when Grey Worm gave Jaime his sword back. If you look carefully, it’s Widow’s Wail, which used to be Joffrey’s sword and it has been with Jaime since Joffrey’s death. So it wasn’t surprising to see the sword with him, but it’s possible that some people might’ve forgotten about it or not have realised that it’s Widow’s Wail and we will speak about the sword once again in the same article, and that’s why I included it in this list.

5. Recreation of an Arya-Gendry scene from season 2

Gendry was working in the forge, when Arya came to check if her new weapon was ready or not and the scene must’ve reminded a lot of fans about an Arya-Gendry scene from season 2 as it was filmed in an identical fashion. Take a look at the pictures below for a comparison.

6. I always pictured myself dying in my bed

While speaking with Jaime, Tyrion spoke about his preferred choice of death. We had last heard him talking about the same thing way back in season 1, when he and Bronn were captured by the mountain clans from the Vale and when Shagga asked Tyrion how he would like to die, Tyrion replied, “In my own bed. At the age of 80. With a belly full of wine and a girl’s mouth around my cock.

7. Ice is finally back in Winterfell

Ice was the Valyrian steel sword that belonged to House Stark, but once Ned Stark was arrested and later executed with Ice, Tywin Lannister got it melted into two new Valyrian steel swords – Oathkeeper and Widow’s Wail. Jaime gave Oathkeeper to Brienne so that she could fulfil the promise Jaime had made to Catelyn Stark and after Joffrey’s death, Widow’s Wail was used by Jaime.

Now that Jaime has reached Winterfell, both the swords which were created from Ice are back home, and they will be used to protect Winterfell against the Army of the Dead.

8. A reference to Princess Shireen

During the episode, we got to see a young girl with burn marks on her face that resembled Shireen Baratheon’s Grayscale covered face. Davos used to consider Shireen as his daughter, and she had helped both Davos and Gilly in learning to read. So when they saw a girl with the burn mark on her face, it reminded them of Shireen and it was an emotional scene.

9. A look at the war strategy

During the episode, we got a chance to see all the major characters together while they were discussing the war strategy and we got a glimpse of their battle plan.

We will have the Arryn and Stark forces on the left side, with Brienne leading them. We have already seen Brienne and Jaime standing in the front with the Arryn soldiers in the preview for the 3rd episode.

The Unsullied and the Dothraki will be present at the centre, and the remaining Stark forces will fight on the right side. Inside the castle, Lyanna Mormont will lead her soldiers and will ensure that people remain safe if the Wights enter Winterfell. We can also see a tile that hasn’t been marked. It’s possible that it represents the remaining soldiers who might guard the Crypts.

We also know that Theon will be present in the Godswood to protect Bran Stark.

10. Sam the book-stealer

In the latest episode, Samwell again mentioned that he had stolen a considerable number of books from the Citadel library and he said the same thing when he met Daenerys in the first episode of this season. It appears that those lines have been added to the scenes as comic relief, but they aren’t as harmless as they sound to be. At least for Daenerys Targaryen.

Everyone might have a nice laugh when Sam mentions about the stolen books and might wonder what harm can a book cause, but a book at the Citadel has ensured that Daenerys lost her claim to the Iron Throne. Just as the episode is about to end, Jon drops the bombshell on Daenerys and tells her that his real name is Aegon Targaryen and that he’s the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark.

When Daenerys asks him how he came to know about this piece of information, he says that Bran saw it and Sam confirmed it as he had read about their marriage in the Citadel. It’s important to remember that this piece of information wasn’t a part of any book that was stolen by Samwell.

Archmaester Ebrose had given the diary to Samwell, but I have included the point to highlight the fact that even a book is more than enough to destroy Daenerys’ claim to the Iron Throne. So, when Sam mentions book stealing in the same sentence along with killing a White Walker and a Thenn, it is equally significant.

11. I have a son. You have a daughter

Way back in the first episode of season 1, Robert Baratheon told Ned Stark, “I have a son. You have a daughter. We’ll join our houses.” At that time he was referring to Joffrey and Sansa, but it turns out it actually foreshadowed a relationship between Arya and Gendry. Fans have been speculating about this since a long time, and the latest episode confirmed that the fans had correctly guessed the possibility of a romantic relationship between Arya and Gendry.

12. A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

This is one of the most emotional scenes from the latest episode, and it also makes a big reference to the series of prequel novellas written by George R. R. Martin, which are known as the Tales of Dunk & Egg. These three novellas, which are set 100 years before the events that are happening in Game Of Thrones have been compiled and published as a book titled “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

The novellas narrate the story of Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Egg, who would go on to become King Aegon V Targaryen, while Ser Duncan would become the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. It’s also interesting to note that Egg’s older brother was Maester Aemon.

What makes it even more interesting is the fact that Duncan the Tall is Brienne of Tarth’s ancestor. So when Jaime Lannister knighted Brienne in the latest episode and called her A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, it was an excellent reference to her legendary ancestor Ser Duncan the Tall and who knows, in the end, if the Iron Throne isn’t destroyed, Brienne might become the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.

13. I wish you good fortune cousin

I think that fans of Lyanna Mormont should start praying immediately as there’s a high chance she might die in the third episode while fighting against the White Walkers. I am coming to this conclusion after watching her scene with her cousin, Jorah Mormont.

Jorah tried to convince Lyanna to stay in the Crypts where it would be safer. However, the badass leader of House Mormont refused to hide and told Jorah that she pledged to fight for the North and she would fight at all costs.

She then left, and while leaving, she said, “I wish you good fortune cousin,” and looking at the past seasons, it’s definitely not a positive thing to say. Let’s take a look at the scenes where we have heard this line.

Arthur Dayne to Ned Stark:I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.” Result: Arthur Dayne died.

Mance Rayder to Stannis:I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.” Result: Mance Rayder died.

Benjen Stark to Bran and Meera in season 6:I wish you both good fortune.” Result: Benjen Stark died.

I hope that she survives episode 3, but it seems highly unlikely at the moment. The only exception is Jon Snow, as he said the same thing to Daenerys in season 7 when he was leaving Dragonstone to capture a Wight. He almost died when he fell inside the frozen lake while fighting the Wights and he has already died once. So that might be a reason why he didn’t die after saying the same line and don’t forget, he has the plot armour as he’s one of the central characters in the show.

14. Jenny of Oldstones

Towards the end of the episode, Podrick sang a song named Jenny of Oldstones, and this is the first time we are listening this song in the show but the book readers have read about it, and the song might have a special significance as it is thought to be connected with the Targaryen dynasty and the Azor Ahai prophecy. You can read our detailed article about Jenny’s Song to know how it might foreshadow Jon-Daenerys’ fate. Here are the lyrics to the song:

High in the halls of the kings who are gone
Jenny would dance with her ghosts.
The ones she had lost and the ones she had found
And the ones who had loved her the most.
The ones who’d been gone for so very long
She couldn’t remember their names.
They spun her around on the damp old stones
Spun away all her sorrow and pain.
And she never wanted to leave
Never wanted to leave.

15. A season 7 reference to Jenny of Oldstones

We listened to Jenny of Oldstones song for the first time in this episode, but it definitely isn’t the first time we are hearing her name. Back in season 7, Bran had sent letters throughout Westeros to warn people about the Army of the Dead and once such letter reached the Citadel and during that scene, we had a reference to Jenny of Oldstones.

A maester referred to her as a “Charlatan who claimed descent from the Children of the Forest.”

16. There are a lot of White Walkers

The episode ended with the White Walkers arriving at Winterfell and there’s a high possibility that many fans must’ve have missed a huge detail because the scene was very dark. If you increase the brightness and look carefully, you can see an endless line of White Walkers!

So far we have only seen 4-5 White Walkers accompanying the Night King, and this is the first time we are going to see all the White Walkers together, and it’s a bad sign for our favourite characters. We have written about this in detail over here.

If you think I missed any important detail, do let me know in the comments section.
