Game Of Thrones season 7 GIFs by Wiki Of Thrones

The first episode of the new season of Game of Thrones airs tonight and we can’t be any less excited about it. While what comes next will be revealed today, of course, starting off with the reunions of some of our favourite characters, a quick recap is something we need hours ahead of the premiere.

We can visualise Westeros burning blue with Night King’s new mount Viserion this season along with a number of theories and some wishful thinking like the much-hyped Cleganebowl, and much more. The last season did leave us with some clues for the end-game in Season 8. Here’s a quick recap of the Seventh Season, explained in the gifs that we had created for each episode:

#Episode 1: Dragonstone

The first episode of Season 7 begins with the eventual fate of House Frey by Arya Stark, who wipes out its existence from the map of Westeros. Bran crosses the Wall with Meera Reed to get back home. In the North, Jon Snow as the King in the North,  prepares the defences, asking all to play a part in the Great War. He decides to forgive the Karstarks and the Umbers even when they had betrayed the Starks, not taking into account Sansa’s advice.

Cersei takes a walk on the newly painted map of Westeros, discussing the future of their House with Jaime. Euron Greyjoy becomes her newest ally promising her a valuable gift. Samwell Tarly is under training at Old Town – on his journey of being a Maester. Lastly, we see a brief encounter between him and Ser Jorah Mormont, while Daenerys Targaryen makes her way back home – landing at Dragonstone.

#Episode 2: Stormborn

The second episode of Season 7 begins with a confrontation between Varys and Daenerys – who judges his loyalty. Melisandre arrives at Dragonstone, asking Dany to summon Jon Snow. Jon receives two letters – one from Dany and the other from Samwell Tarly. Based on Sam’s confirmation of Dragonglass on Dragonstone, Jon decides to go and meet the Dragon Queen, while facing a revolt from the Northerners. Sam tries to heal Jorah’s Greyscale – a gross scene.

Arya Stark upon hearing that Jon is King in the North decides to head back to Winterfell, only to meet with her long-lost direwolf Nymeria. Cersei in King’s Landing tries to persuade her bannermen to support her instead of the Mad King’ daughter. Dany holds a meeting, where her allies Ellaria Sand, Yara Greyjoy, and Queen Ollena give a nod to Tyrion Lannister’s plan of storming King’s Landing.  Euron Greyjoy attacks Yara’s fleet which results in Yara and Ellaria along with Tyene Sand being captured. Theon being fearful, leaps down the ship.

#Episode 3: The Queen’s Justice

This episode begins with Jon arriving at Dragonstone to meet Dany, who is only concerned about the threat of the White Walkers and isn’t ready to bend the knee to a Targaryen. Dany learns that she has lost her two valuable allies Greyjoys and the Martells. Theon is rescued from the sea – who is mistreated by the Ironborn for failing to save Yara. Yara, Ellaria, and Tyene are paraded through King’s Landing to be presented as a gift to Cersei Lannister.

Cersei poisons Tyene Sand – an act of revenge against Ellaria and justice for her deceased daughter Mrycella. Bran arrives at Winterfell and reunites with Sansa – the acting Lady of Winterfell. Dany sends the Unsullied to capture Casterly Rock, while most of the Lannisters are absent. Lannisters and Tarlys attack Highgarden, plundering it to pay the debts of Iron Bank. Jaime confronts Olenna Tyrell, gives her poison to drink. Before dying, Olenna confesses to having poisoned Joffrey at the Purple Wedding.

#Episode 4: Spoils of War

Arya Stark arrives at Winterfell, reuniting with her siblings Sansa and Bran. Meera Reed leaves for her home. Jon and Dany discuss the legend of the last Long Night, based on ancient carvings in the cave of Dragonglass. Dany is filled with anger when she learns that they’ve lost Highgarden too. Theon Greyjoy arrives at Dragonstone to ask for Dany’s help, who at first is choked by Jon for betraying the Stark and then learns that Dany isn’t on Dragonstone.

Bronn and Jaime make their way to King’s Landing with the plundered gold and grains only to be ambushed by Dany and the Dothrakis. Many Lannisters are killed and Jaime attempts to end the Battle by killing Dany. He is about to be roasted by Drogon, while being saved by Bronn.

#Episode 5: Eastwatch

The episode begins with Dany demanding the survivors of the Battle to bend the knee while roasting Tarlys alive. Jaime and Bronn return to King’s Landing. Jon meets with Drogon for the first time. Much to Dany’s surprise, Drogon allows Jon to pet him.

Bran wargs into a bunch of ravens to Eastwatch only to learn that Night King is arriving soon. While Jon learns the same and demands to leave for Winterfell, Tyrion suggests him to present a wight to Cersei in order to get the support of King’s Landing in the great war.

Davos smuggles Tyrion to King’s Landing while meeting with Gendry in Flea Bottom. Gendry follows Davos to Dragonstone, while Jon and company head for Eastwatch by the Sea. Sam being bored of the monotony of the Citadel, leaves Old Town with Gilly and Baby Sam.

Littlefinger being aware of Arya spying on him unearths Sansa’s letter to Robb. Jon, Jorah, Gendry, and Davos reach Eastwatch by the Sea and unite with Tormund and Brotherhood Without Banners and head for their ‘wight-hunting’ expedition.

#Episode 6: Beyond the Wall

Jon and party travel North of the Wall and we see a few small talks between characters like Jon and Jorah, Tormund and Sandor Clegane, and Gendry with the Brotherhood until they are attacked by an undead Polar Bear. Thoros of Myr is severely injured, while they continue their mission. Arya plays the Game of Faces with Sansa, judging her loyalty to Jon. Daenerys has a discussion with Tyrion and gets furious when the subject of succession is brought about.

Jon and party encounter a couple of wights lead by a White Walker. Jon kills the Walker, and they try to capture a wight while being ambushed by a hundred thousand wights and the Night King. Gendry being the fastest of them, runs back to Eastwatch to send a raven to Dany, informing her of the ambush. Dany arrives in time to save them but loses Viserion who is killed by the Night King. Jon is left behind only to be rescued by Benjen Stark. Dany makes a promise to Jon to fight alongside him to avenge the death of her dragon.  The Night King resurrects Viserion as a White Walker to be his mount.

#Episode 7: The Dragon and The Wolf

The ultimate episode of Season 7 begins with Jon and Daenerys presenting the captured wight to Cersei in order to get her support in the Great War. While initially, Cersei agrees to help, yet she is pissed when Jon says he can’t pledge his loyalty to her. Tyrion tries to persuade her, and she agrees to help after their small conversation. Sansa discovers Arya’s faces while she continues the Game of Faces. Littlefinger tries to take advantage of the chaos, turning the sisters against each other. Jon and Dany plan for their Journey to Winterfell, while Theon asks permission to try rescuing his sister. Theon Greyjoy indulges in a fight while gaining the respect of the Ironborn, while Littlefinger is executed by Arya.

Cersei reveals her plan to Jaime of betraying Jon and Dany, while a disgusted Jaime abandons her to honour his pledge. Sam arrives at Winterfell while discovering with Bran that Jon is a legitimate Targaryen named Aegon and that Robert’s rebellion was built on a lie. Jon and Daenerys on their way to Winterfell make love, while Tyrion gives a concerned look. Sansa and Arya reconcile, while Bran wargs and flies a flock of ravens to Eastwatch. Night King mounted on Viserion melts a portion of the Wall at Eastwatch by the Sea. The Army of The Dead breaches the Wall, while Tormund and Beric barely escape.

Season 8 premieres tonight and you can watch it on HBO in usa and if you live in India, you can watch Game Of Thrones online on Hotstar!

HBO has released new photos from Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Game of Thrones Season 8 recently hit us with that amazing premiere after almost a 600-day wait. Being the opening episode, it didn’t do too much, but just enough to set up the rest of the season. Immediately after the episode, we got the preview trailer for Episode 2, teasing what’s coming to us next. Now, HBO has released new photos from the upcoming episode. Read on!

If we know anything about this season, it’s that the Night King and his army are headed for Winterfell. In the last episode, we basically got a convergence of all those fighting for the living at Winterfell. Even Jaime Lannister showed up at the end, mirroring his journey throughout the show. Looks like Winterfell will be at the focal point of the upcoming episode, with all the 14 new pictures being of characters as they prepare for war, in Winterfell, with tense faces, wine, and soup! Check them out:

Jaime on trial, Gilly and Baby Sam safe, Sansa having soup, Daenerys and her many moods, Bran being Bran, and Lyanna being Lyanna. It’s everything that can make a great episode set in Winterfell, at this point.

We didn’t get a glimpse at what’s going on outside Winterfell, but there’s still time. Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 2 is set to air Sunday, 21st April. Are you looking forward to it? What do you think will happen? Hit us up in the comments, down below!

‘Game Revealed’ takes you inside the making of Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1: ‘Winterfell”

'Game Revealed' takes you inside the making of Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1: 'Winterfell"

Winter is here, folks.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 takes us straight into a moment of grand convergences. All the key players have finally come together to make a final stand against the oncoming Dead and their personal dynamics is what takes up most of ‘Winterfell‘.

But how did it all come together, and how tough was it to handle so many diverse storylines at once? HBO’s feature ‘Game Revealed’ takes us behind-the-scenes of one of the most anticipated episodes in TV history and decodes all the action. Clocking in at over 17 minutes, the featurette goes deep into the making of ‘Winterfell’ and addresses several aspects of it. Let’s have look at some of the most important ones!

Daenerys arrives at Winterfell

As promised before, Season 8 Episode 1 had heavy callbacks to the Pilot episode from way back in 2011, including the soundtrack. The King’s Arrival is played for the first time again in 10 years as Jon and Daenerys are first visible among Unsullied soldiers. Another major callback is the little boy climbing on a tree and running below legs to get a better look – recalling both Bran and Arya from Season 1. The little boy’s vantage point was perfectly suited to capture the awe-inspiring scale of Dany’s army and dragons. “We thought the arrival was a way to capture what was at stake for Dany and for Jon”, says showrunner D.B. Weiss, “Everybody has a slightly different take on what’s happening here.” It was also a production nightmare with hundreds of extras with tight close-up shots.

Meet the Family

Inside Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1

Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, and Kit Harington talk about their approach to the super-awkward meeting between two power ladies. Dany is polite and courteous at first, as Emilia says, “You’re meeting the family. You want to do well, you want them to like you Goddamnit!.” Sansa, on the other hand, is wary of this new Targaryen queen and does not want to relinquish authority. Episode director David Nutter reveals his brief to Sophie for this scene, “You have to know one thing; this is your house.” Kit Harington sums up Jon’s feelings, “It’s not a comfortable homecoming, no.”

We’ve Got Company

Inside Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1

Game of Thrones might be the epitome of Fantasy storytelling now, but before all that, there was Star Wars. Showrunner David Benioff says he thought “It was some practical joke” when they first learned the legendary Star Wars creator Geroge Lucas wanted to visit the GoT sets. It’s a fanboy moment for Benioff as he says, “for so many of he was the who started our obsession with this kind of big epic storytelling.” The featurette shows Lucas watching the filming of Jon and Daenerys walking through Winter Town scene, looking at the monitor with Nutter, and speaking to the actors.

The Stark Family Tree

Inside Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1

The Godswood and its Weirwood Heart Tree have been an integral part of the Winterfell storyline since Season 1, but this is the first time we get a peek into how it is made to fit George R.R. Martin‘s unusual description. Production Designer Deborah Riley explained the care and hard work that goes in to make such an iconic piece, which is very unlike normal trees with white trunks, blood-red leaves, and carved faces on the barks.

This is also the setting of Jon and Arya’s reunion, arguably the most emotional moment on the episode. Director Nutter credits the amazing chemistry that Harington and Maisie Williams shared off-screen; “I didn’t have to do anything. We had two actors who hadn’t work together since Season 1 a chance to show pure true love.”

The Dead Strike First

Inside Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1

If the first episode is about setting up the key pieces and players, how can the Dead be left behind? In an episode dominated by lords and ladies talking, they make their presence felt and how! We see their handiwork in the Last Hearth, with poor little Ned Umber impaled as the centerpiece of one of Night King‘s ghastly severed limb-mandalas. The scene where the dead boy awakens and is put to fire was extremely tricky and risky to shoot, with multiple layers of VFX and stunt doubling to make it appear realistic. Stuntman Paul Lowe is the hero in this scene, although he is pretty gung-ho about it; “This is the first time I got a full burn so that’s a nice tick.” Phew!

Dragonflight

Inside Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1

Jon rides a dragon! That was an exhilarating moment for the audience and actors alike. Kit and Emilia, best friends in real life, had some opportunity for exchange here. Kit rode a dragon for the first time which Emilia has been doing for long, and Emilia came to Iceland, where most of Kit’s Night’s Watch shooting took place. This is kind of the first time where Dany is shown riding without a battle raging around her, so it was quite fun. “It just felt like a magic carpet ride!” Emilia exclaims. Kit’s first time on the dragon, however, was…uncomfortable. We suggest you watch the video to find out more about that!

The featurette also talks about the different Stark Reunions (Sansa-Tyrion, Arya-Gendry, Arya-Hound, Bran-Jaime). We are not including them here because the dynamics are pretty obvious if complex. There are also celebrity and crew cameos. Comedians Martin Starr (Gilfoyl from Silicon Valley) and Rob McElhenney (Ronald in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) joined the cast as Euron Greyjoy’s men only to die in about two seconds.

All in all, the featurette just makes us all the more excited about episode two. What’s your take? Let us know!

The waterfall scene with Jon might spell a dark end for Daenerys

The waterfall scene with Jon might spell a dark end for Daenerys

Spoilers, duh. With memorable dialogues like “I’ve always had blue eyes!” and a jump scare at the end that made us topple of our seats, the final season of Game of Thrones premiered with a bang. Given the impending war, Jon and Daenerys, since they have their priorities in order, found the time to take the dragons for a little joyride. They zoom around for a bit where Jon clings on to Rhaegal with all the grace of a duck out of water. They then land near a waterfall where some healthy flirting and kissing ensues.

Fans were about as pleased with the whole thing as Drogon was. Fans have pointed out that it is too reminiscent of Jon’s moments with his first lover, the wildling Ygritte.

A quick recap:

In season three, Jon took Ygritte to a cave where one thing led to another and they ended up doing the nasty. In a sentence, Jon Snow-ed her a really good time. So much so that Ygritte winded up saying, “Let’s not go back. I don’t ever want to leave this cave, Jon Snow.”

The waterfall scene with Jon might spell a dark end for Daenerys

Cute, but Ygritte ended up dead in the next season so it was fun while it lasted. Her last words were, funnily enough, a throwback to the cave scene, where she said to Jon, “You remember that cave? We should have stayed in that cave.”

Parallels have been drawn between the cave scene and the Jon-Dany waterfall scene where Daenerys ended up saying something eerily similar – “We could stay a thousand years. No one would find us.” Now it might be a bit of a stretch to say that Daenerys dug her own grave with that line, but then again this is Game of Thrones. And if there’s one thing they’ve never been shy of, it’s killing off important characters in a heartbeat.

What do you think? Will Dae bae soon be dead bae?
