Bran returned with a bang on Game of Thrones season 6 and Hodor spoke some words

Game of Thrones season 6 is the best according to showrunners

Game of thrones is back on our screens and we have missed our beloved Bran Stark who has made a comeback on the show after two long years. In a recent interview with EW, Isaac Hempstead Wright said his storyline was going to be the most intriguing this season 6 and boy he was right.

Bran vision took him to Winterfell with the Three-Eyed Raven and he watched young Ned Stark sparring with Benjen and they were joined by Lyanna Stark. Bran also saw the young Hodor and he found out that his real name is Wylis (in the books his name is Walder) and he could actually speak when he was young.

This scene was very exciting as we saw Lyanna Stark for the first time in the show and also came to know that Hodor (Wylis) could speak normally when he was young but he sure was huge for the children of his age. We don’t know what incident took away his ability to speak but we think that it might be interesting. It should be noted that Christian Nairn, who plays the role of Hodor once said that Höðr is the Norse God of Winter when he was asked if he had any theory about the meaning of his name.

On being asked if this is Bran’s best season, he said, “Definitely. His first two seasons he was reacting to other people’s storylines. Then he started to get his own thing with his dreaming and journeying north. But we weren’t sure what was going on. Now we’ve learned his storyline is pretty damn important. I love this season so much. His been very insular in his storyline. Now he’s realized he’s been having his dreams because he’s got to save Westeros. It’s such a cool storyline now.”

He also spoke about what to expect from his visions this seasons, he gave an interesting reply saying, “Bran is pretty damn close to being the Three-Eyed Raven now. Previously, he’s seen tiny glimpses of future or past but never has he been very much in control of the situation. Now we’re given looks into very important events in the past, present, and future of this world and Bran is beginning to piece them together like a detective, almost as if he’s watching the show. Equally, he’s now discovering how crucial he could be in the Great War. It’s quite Inception-y. His power is not just in telling us about the history, but also might have a serious impact on the future.

This interesting interview then went to how Isaac Hempstead Wright, the actor who plays Bran Stark, felt when he got to stand up on the show finally. He said, “For the first two days it’s like, “Oh yeah, I’m walking around and doing things.” Then you’re like, “You know what? Can we go back to the cave so I can lie down again and just relax?” But no, it’s been nice to stand up for a bit this season.

We are just really glad to have him back on the show.

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 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.

Arya Stark and Gendry share a moment in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Arya Stark and Gendry share a moment in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2 dropped today, and we got a lot more than expected, yet again. While the focus of this episode rotated between characters frequently, Arya Stark seemed to be getting a lot more done in this episode than most other characters. Before we proceed: SPOILER ALERT! Consider yourself warned.

Now, Arya has been in a lot of bad places throughout the course of the show, but Gendry doesn’t know this. We see Arya staring at a sweaty and hardworking Gendry as he forges weapons. The pair have a chat and Gendry tries telling Arya she should hide away rather than fight the dead. Arya, being herself, shows off her aim, proving a point.

Gendry is later seen bringing Arya the weapon she asked him to make and we see Arya showing off her archery skills as Gendry arrives. During their discussion, Gendry reveals his true parentage to Arya, and she proceeds to ask Gendry how many women he has been with and Arya and Gendry then end up having sex. The relationship between the two has been long anticipated, and the fans might have gotten more than they could imagine with this scene.

However, this was not all. We saw Arya’s aim being teased quite a lot in this episode, and then we see the weapon that Gendry gives her. Most of you might have realized this by now — this weapon looks similar to the Night King‘s spear. If you think about it, it’s quite the opposite of that, since Dragonglass kills White Walkers. It looks as if there’s a high chance that Arya throws the spear at Viserion, and kills it off, for good.
