7 major reunions from Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere

Game of Thrones Season 8 is officially here and we are already in troubled waters. Episode 1 Winterfell was all about setting the stage and meeting of key actors, and there were major callbacks to the Pilot episode, as promised. Now many of these have histories that can make things super awkward, and Episode 1 didn’t disappoint on that count. Some of the reunions that we have been rooting for took place, and some didn’t. Without further ado, here’s all that came to pass, in chronological order.

Warning: the rest of the article contains spoilers, so if you’re yet to catch up on Season 8 Premiere, stop reading!

1. Jon and Bran

Jon Snow remembers Bran as a sweet, restless, and curious boy. Bran was in a coma when he left Winterfell in S1 E2. But Bran has changed (to put it mildly), and although Jon must have heard of his new abilities he is yet to know the full implications. He greets Bran just as a loving older brother would, “You are a man now!” Bran’s cold “Almost” creeps him out properly.

From Bran’s perspective though, his reception of Jon is actually pretty warm, considering his behaviour last season. There’s even a hint of a smile this time. Well, almost.

2. Tyrion and Sansa

As far as awkward reunions go, this one’s right on top. Sansa and Tyrion were wedded, against their wishes, back in Season 3. But then Littlefinger got Sansa married again to Ramsay Bolton. Now Ramsay is dead, and Sansa is Lady Stark of Winterfell. So are they still married?

Tyrion does refer to Sansa as ‘wife’ but in the third person, and in connection to Joffrey’s wedding (and murder). It is unclear how they view their relationship now. There is both respect and tension between them. Tyrion reminds Sansa how her disappearance almost got him killed. Sansa alludes he is being stupid in trusting Cersei.

3. Jon and Arya

In an episode practically built on reunions, this one was the sweetest and most heartwarming. Both Jon and Arya had felt like outsiders in their childhood and bonded the strongest. Their reunion embrace and sword-talk have heavy callbacks to their parting scene in Season 1. Also, both of them tear up, making it the most emotionally charged scene in the whole episode.

But there is also tension. Jon had hoped to find an ally in Arya in countering what he sees as Sansa’s annoying meddling. But Arya surprises her by siding with Sansa and calling her “the smartest person I know.”

4. Arya and the Hound

No love lost here. Arya left Sandor Clegane to die and has no regret about it when they come face to face. The Hound already knows that she is alive, and does seem happy to see her in his own gruff way. But Arya displays no warmth. Their relationship has always been super strange and fraught with tensions. If you remember, Hound was also part of Arya’s kill list. Is he still on it, and does that matter to Arya now? No hints, as of now.

5. Gendry and Arya

The fandom has been shipping them all along, and obligingly, Gendry and Arya’s reunion at the Winterfell forge has its fair share of sexual-tension. Their deadpan acknowledgement of each other’s attractiveness will draw some snigger. But there’s also heartfelt warmth, which comes forth when Gendry calls her ‘Mi’lady’ just like their Kingsroad days and Arya breaks into a rare, sweet smile.

6. Jon and Sam

7-major-reunions-from-game-of-thrones-season-8-premiere-6-7171361

Season 8 ticks off one of the most anticipated reunions right in the first episode, and aren’t we grateful?! Jon and Sam’s relationship is problem-free in itself, but this reunion is complicated by Sam’s knowledge of Jon’s true parentage. The scene brings out the complexities almost at once.

Sam has just learnt about his father and brother’s death and Daenerys’s role in it when Bran tells him to go talk to Jon. His revelation, therefore, is tinged with bitterness towards the Mother of Dragons. But this also enables him to ask a very important question. Jon gave up his crown to save his people. Will Daenerys do the same when she learns Jon is the rightful king after all?

On his part, Jon is more confused than ever. All that he knows about himself is nullified in one stroke and puts him in direct competition with the woman he loves.

7. Jaime and Bran

7-major-reunions-from-game-of-thrones-season-8-premiere-7-8376929

The most sensational reunion of the episode is also the cliffhanger of it. The last time Jaime Lannister came face to face with Bran Stark was in the Pilot when he was pushing him out of a tower window. That was the closing scene in S1 E1, just as the Bran-Jaime meet closes S8 E1.

Now, Jaime is on the arguably steepest redemption arc in TV history and the boy he crippled is the omniscient Three-Eyed Raven. The meeting is sure going to be interesting when it plays out in the next episode. Bran Stark hints as much when just a couple scenes ago he tells Sam that he’s “waiting for an old friend” and hence cannot go talk to Jon.

However, these weren’t the only reunions in the episode. We witnessed other reunions as well which weren’t as big or anticapited as the ones mentioned above. So we will just list them below:

  • Theon-Yara
  • Jorah-Samwell
  • Cersei-Euron
  • Dolorous Edd-Tormund

Meetings are done, now the fallouts await. What is Bran going to tell Jaime? How will Sansa and Tyrion’s relationship pan out? Most importantly, how is Jon going to process the news of his royal birthright and what’s Daenerys’s reaction going to be?

Next Sunday, come quick!

In the 20 minute behind-the-scenes tidbits of the series titled “Game Revealed”, we found out that Star Wars creator George Lucas paid a secret visit to the Game of Thrones Season 8 set.

6d228237-4ecc-4d4c-8cd8-fcffd056a5dd-8698481

David Benioff expressed in the video that when they found out that George Lucas wanted to visit, they assumed it to be a practical joke. Benioff added, “we were really excited and also nervous because it’s George Lucas”.

The first time I could remember telling stories was me as a little kid, mashing together these Stormtrooper dolls. For so many of us, [Lucas] is the one who started this obsession with this big epic storytelling”, Benioff narrated as he reminisced about his Star Wars fandom days. Benioff and D.B Weiss are set to create a new Star Wars trilogy for the franchise as well.

The behind-the-scenes clip shows Lucas with the cast and crew while filming the first episode of Season 8, “Winterfell”. In the clip, Lucas talks to Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington and he is also shown watching some footage with veteran director David Nutter.

Apart from “Game Revealed”, fans are also anticipating HBO’s forthcoming two-hour documentary about GoT’s last season. It will be called “Game of Thrones: Last Watch” and will premiere one week after the series finale.

The Greyjoys, or rather the last of them, finally reunite in the first episode of Game of Thrones season 8.

0af7caff-6e21-4e02-8bb3-ec823598940c-6884797

As Yara is held captive by her uncle Euron, she questions him as to why he has kept her alive anyway. He jokes about wanting someome to talk to among the “mutes” and what better company than someone from his own family.

Of course, Euron did not really flee since the happenings of the last season. He is shown as stationed on the harbour near King’s Landing, as he brought the Golden Company as a mercenary for Cersei. While Euron is sneaking away to spend some time with Cersei at King’s Landing like an excited teenager, Theon comes to Yara’s rescue.

As he proceeds through the ship, there is an eerie sense of silence. And once Theon frees Yara, the reunion is not as cheery as one would think it to be. Because it’s Yara Greyjoy we are talking about, the first thing she does is yank Theon’s head with hers, tripping him over to the ground. What else would she do? Theon literally fled succumbing to his alter ego “Reek” in season 7 as he refused to fight and stand by his sister against their Uncle Euron’s attack. He fled by jumping off the ship.

But the bitterness doesn’t last that long, and she reveals that Euron is not capable of taking the Iron Islands back with the number of ships and soldiers he possesses. That’s when she suggests that “we can take our home back”. 

As Theon informs her that their ally Danaerys has gone North, Yara rationally stresses that Damaerys “will need somewhere to retreat if they cannot hold the North. Somewhere the dead can’t go”. 

It’s at this point where we see the brother-sister rapport. Theon tells Yara that she is his queen, and he is set to go wherever she commands him to go. And like a sibling, Yara anticipates that Theon wants to go to Winterfell to fight for the Starks, not the Iron Islands.

Yara doesn’t protest, and tells Theon to go fight at Winterfell. As Theon is ready to take leave, chanting “What is dead may never die”, Yara says “but kill the bastards anyway”, referring to the White Wwalkers. Truth bomb, much?

samwell-tarly-faces-some-bad-news-in-game-of-thrones-season-8-premiere-9660056

Game of Thrones Season 8 has just begun, with the premiere episode bringing in positive reactions. A lot of things happened in the episode, with even the seemingly not-so-important characters getting the spotlight. One of the moments involved our lovable Samwell Tarly, and we saw him get some bad news this time around. Before you proceed, beware, SPOILER ALERT! 

Now, we all know Samwell Tarly wasn’t exactly on great terms with his father, Randyll Tarly. In Season 7 we saw Daenerys Targaryen execute Randyll, as well as his other son, Samwell’s brother, Dickon Tarly. Obviously, being as busy as he is, Samwell hadn’t heard of this. However, in the Season 8 premiere, he had to face this bad news, and it came from none other than Daenerys Targaryen, herself. Check out the video clip of the scene:

Well, it was certainly conflicting to watch that. On one hand, Daenerys is the promising Queen of the seven realms, and on the other, she set Sam’s family on fire. Samwell himself seems to be pretty shaken about his faith in Daenerys. He goes on to plant the seed of doubt in Jon Snow’s heart as well.

Will Daenerys’ free-handed death-by-fire-sentence catch up to her? What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
