HBO insisted that “The Bud Knight had to die” during the Super Bowl commercial

Super Bowl happened this Sunday and hopes were high for something new from Game of Thrones Season 8 – this isn’t only me saying but the entire internet. The fans – including me have totally lost it since Game of Thrones released an extended version of the Super Bowl teaser featuring Drogon and the Mountain.  Let’s discuss this in detail.

The ad reminds you of the jousting that took place to welcome Ned Stark in the capital, back in Season 1 or the Hand’s Tourney as the Westerosis called it. During this jousting, however, the Mountain defeats the defender of the Bud Light “Dilly Dilly” kingdom.

“The ad reunited more than 25 people from the Game of Thrones crew and was directed by David Nutter, who helms multiple episodes in the show’s final season and directed several previous episodes of the series. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were also involved.”

Later, HBO Marketing Chief Chris Spadaccini revealed that they demanded that the Bud Knight died during the commercial. Spadaccini said, “The Bud Knight had to die.”

Bud Light also shared a tribute on Twitter, with the hashtag #RememberBudKnight.

Game of Thrones – promoted via Budweiser’s Super Bowl 2019 ad! Some fans have totally lost it as they believe something’s totally brewing up inside – the official trailer, a poster, or footage like the last season. While this might be entirely mere speculation of the fans yet Game of Thrones in collaboration with Budweiser has been able to bring in the attention of the fans that ‘Winter is Coming’!

Watch the full video here:

While we wait for the final season – which will be airing on our television sets in less than three months – we also are totally up for the official trailer. What about you? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

Daenerys faces the truth about Jon’s parentage in Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

jennys song refers to dany-jon's fate

So. The cat is out of the bag. Daenerys knows she is not technically the rightful heir to Iron Throne after all. A secret male heir exists, who happens to be the man she fell in love with and came to help, leaving the war for her throne unfinished. Aw, bugger!

daenerys faces the truth can she handle it

 

In an episode filled with emotional moments and last-minute passionate exchanges, this was perhaps the most difficult and awkward conversation and certainly carrying the most weight. Jon Snow told Daenerys Targaryen, his Queen and paramour, that he is the secret son of Rhaegar Targaryen, Daenerys’s elder brother. As Rhaegar was the crown prince and Jon is the male child of his body, that makes him a better claimant to the throne than Dany, Rhaegar’s sister.

The scene is poignant in many ways. Robert Baratheon claimed that Rhaegar had raped Lyanna, and even Dany believes that version, even though Rhaegar is her brother. In telling her the story, Jon not only announces his own identity but also clears the name of his birth-father from a terrible rape accusation. This also puts their relationship in jeopardy, as their ancestry makes it incestuous, and the North may be even less inclined to accept them as a couple.

Season 8 Episode 2 Daenerys Faces The Truth. Can She Handle It?

From Daenerys’s perspective, this is a terrible blow to everything she has known and believed about herself. She has received only coldness since arriving in the North. Sansa has made it clear, despite Dany’s efforts to reach out, that the North will not accept her as Queen any time soon.

Naturally, her first thought is, Jon’s brother and best friend are cooking up a story to pit him against her. Jon, on the other hand, has no such doubt about either Bran or Sam. They are ‘saved’ from this impasse when the alarm sounds, but the issue remains. The preview of the next episode has them standing on a high place, much like the dragon lair. It seems they are going to battle together.

The big battle is coming, and the survival of all of them is put into jeopardy. Will learning about Jon’s parentage affect the Dany’s response in the battle in any way? And if they survive, is this the end of their romance?

Guess we will have to sit out the Season to know that!

Jon Snow’s Direwolf, Ghost returned in the latest episode but fans weren’t thrilled

The direwolf Ghost is back in the latest episode but fans aren't thrilled

The second episode of season 8 saw the return of the good boy, the good boy being the best thing that has ever happened to Jon Snow AKA his direwolf Ghost. We last saw the direwolf in season 6 during Jon Snow’s resurrection scene. This was when he curled up, patiently waiting for Jon to stop being dead. ‘Twas a scene where a lot of boxes of tissue were passed around.

So there was rightfully a fair amount of anticipation building up to the moment when Jon and Ghost would reunite. Calling that scene in episode two a reunion would be a bit of a stretch. Fans are understandably pissed because they feel they’ve been done dirty. Which they have. I mean, look at this.

There was no build up to this scene, NOTHING. He’s just there, like an afterthought. While this scene sorely disappointed, fan reactions didn’t.

The direwolf was supposed to have some screen time back in season 7 but he finally didn’t make the cut. Turns out, CGI direwolfs are quite expensive, and with dragons hogging the limelight and the budget, there just wasn’t room for more.

So how annoyed were you with this scene in episode two? Don’t hold back, let us know how you really feel in the comments down below!

Daenerys Targaryen tries to make a friend in Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2

Daenerys Targaryen has been seen throughout the show to be someone who can be ruthless, as well as soft towards the ones that she loves. In the latest episode, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” we kind of got to see both sides of her. Before you proceed, SPOILER ALERT! Consider yourself warned!

Since the beginning of this season, we have seen an uneasy air of tension between Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark. In episode 2, we see Jorah Mormont speak some sense into a hot-headed Daenerys, who wouldn’t listen to her usual voice of reason, Tyrion Lannister. With Jorah’s suggestion, Daenerys extends an olive branch to Sansa.

We see her tell Sansa about why they’re similar, being women that have overcome a lot of difficulties and the oppression of men. Sansa quips by saying she thinks Daenerys has manipulated Jon, to which Daenerys says she’s in the North fighting Jon’s war.

The pair seem to be getting along quite well until Sansa asks Daenerys if she’ll let the North be free, and Daenerys doesn’t seem to take well to that idea. That conversation isn’t finished, however, so looks like we might get to see it in the aftermath of the battle that’s coming to Winterfell.
