Saw the premiere episode of Game of Thrones the other day with a group of friends and I found it to be very interesting. This article will contain spoilers, so please do not read further.
Warning: Spoilers for Season 8 Epsisode 1 Game of Thrones.
There was a lot to take in, it was a great introduction to see all of our favorite characters back for another season of Game of Thrones.
So, we have of course Jon Snow, Sansa, Arya Stark, Jamie Lannister, Cersei (forgive any misspellings) and lets not forget all the other characters which have made this series such a popular show.
Honestly, I didn’t feel there was much going on except re establishing the plot of the series, re introducing characters to an audience which hasn’t seen them for about two years now. I think they did a good job, the episode was very well done, well made and they did seem to introduce potential conflict between Sansa and Deaneryes. Arya seems to be skeptical of everyone, speaking of which she is reunited with “The Hound”, and although it seems they both may hug for a few seconds they didn’t. She last left him for dead and they seem to be in the same love/hate relationship they last had before they parted ways before.
My theory is that “The Hound” is off her hit list as she technically already left him for dead and robbed him.
Going forward, some of my biggest theories is that the big there will be a major wedge driven between Jon Snow and Deaneryes. Sansa and Deaneryes already seem to be hating each other with their distrust and eyeballing each other harshly at least on one occasion.
I don’t know what will happen to Jamie and Cersei, I think that is one of the fun things about the show is that you have no idea what will happen, from episode to episode and it is very difficult to see where they are going with everything.
So many characters to get to, I may just write another article for theories I may have.
Since this is a blog/website to help promote independent authors, and I do not get paid for this either I’d like to mention an author from my book promotional group.
