Watch This Before You See The Final Game Of Thrones Season

Watch This Before You See The Final Game Of Thrones Season


Game of Thrones is finally on the way back
for its final season, promising to bring answers to all of our questions about dragons, white
walkers, and, presumably, whether Hot Pie’s new restaurant business was a success. Still, it’s it’s been a while since we’ve
visited the Seven Kingdoms, so before we get the final piece of HBO’s epic hit series,
here’s a quick rundown of everything you need to know before you watch Game of Thrones
Season 8. The most shattering reveal of Season 7 came
in the finale, confirming one of the longest-held theories in all of Game of Thrones fandom. “General rule of thumb: Stark men don’t
fare well when they travel south.” “True, but I’m not a Stark.” Jon Snow is not, it turns out, the bastard
son of Ned Stark. He’s actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen
and Lyanna Stark, which makes him the rightful-ish heir to the Iron Throne. As his sister Lyanna was close to death due
to childbirth complications, Ned promised to keep her secret at all costs, lying about
Jon’s parentage to protect his identity. Not even Jon knows he’s a Targaryen, which
is why, in true GoT fashion, this reveal was intercut with shots of Jon making out with
Daenerys Targaryen, his secret aunt. Surprisingly, that’s not the most shocking
thing about the scene. Instead, it’s the ramifications of Jon having
both Targaryen and Stark blood coursing through his veins. As we learned from the Three-Eyed Raven, Jon’s
a walking, talking one-man song of ice and fire with roots that go back to Robert’s
Rebellion, the big brawl in Westeros that predates the events of the series. Robert Baratheon cut down Rhaegar on the battlefield
and seized the Iron Throne, setting into motion the narrative we’ve been following for seven
seasons, but it was all based on a lie. When Lyanna left Robert to run off with Rhaegar,
the story throughout the Seven Kingdoms was that she was kidnapped. In reality, though, it seems Rhaegar and Lyanna
were deeply in love, marrying in secret just before they met their ultimate fates. Game of Thrones has used “Winter is coming”
as its ominous tagline since 2011, and Season 7 finally delivered on that promise. As the final image of the season, we see the
undead army of White Walkers on horseback advancing on the Seven Kingdoms. The woefully outmatched remnants of the free
folk and the Night’s Watch helplessly watch as the Night King flexes on the realms of
men by having his new ice dragon huff, puff, and blow the Wall down. That’s right: the Night King has resurrected
an undead, unkillable dragon as the deadliest weapon in his considerable arsenal. So what’s the deal with all the ice zombies? In short, wights are the undead hordes of
soldiers who serve the White Walkers, former humans turned into zombie-like ice monsters
that serve under the Night King. The Night King’s true motives aren’t yet known,
but we know that he’s extremely powerful and can control the entire army with a sort of
telepathy. Fire can destroy the wights, but only dragon
fire, dragonglass, and Valyrian steel can kill White Walkers. Samwell Tarly has discovered that Dragonstone,
the historical seat of House Targaryen, is sitting on a mountain of dragonglass, and
Jon Snow and his men have been mining it and turning it into weapons in preparation ever
since. As for the Night King, it’s unclear if anything
can stop him. In the third episode of season 7, Bran tries
to describe the Greensight for his sister Sansa, telling her that it allows him to see
everything, everywhere, all at once, and also that he can’t be lord of Winterfell because
he’s actually a raven. Or something like that. “It’s difficult to explain.” Bear with us for a moment. After nearly being killed back in Season 1,
Bran has visions, and those visions psychically summoned him to meet the Three-Eyed Raven
north of the Wall, and while it’s never been officially confirmed on the show, it’s implied
that the Three-Eyed Raven Bran meets is Brynden Rivers, a former commander of the Night’s
Watch. He was killed by the Night King in season
6, though, leaving Bran as the last green-seer and the new Three-Eyed Raven. The scope and purpose of Bran’s new powers
are yet to be revealed, but any sequence of events that complicated is undoubtedly going
to play a big part in season 8’s storyline. In season 7, the Stark kids have reunited
in Winterfell. Bran’s been beyond the Wall in search of the
Three-Eyed Raven. Arya has been training to become the perfect
assassin with the Faceless Men before being forced to escape their clutches. Sansa, however, hasn’t been up to anything
nearly as cool. She’s been used as a pawn for years, first
by the Lannisters and then in Littlefinger’s ongoing machinations. By the time she becomes the Lady of Winterfell,
finally emerging as the master manipulator instead of the manipulated pawn, all three
remaining Stark children have been forever transformed. Bran, dealing with the burden of near omnipotence,
has difficulty relating to his sisters on a human level. Arya and Sansa are suspicious of each other’s
motivations. Who can blame them for having trust issues? Just when it seemed the Stark sisters would
succumb to paranoia and suspicion, they got their act together and teamed up against their
true foe, Littlefinger himself, Lord Petyr Baelish. When Sansa called Arya to the Great Hall at
Littlefinger’s request, it seemed as though she was going to accuse her sister. But then, when Sanas levels her charges of
murder and treason, we got the swerve. “How do you answer these charges… Lord Baelish?” Baelish believed he’d driven a wedge between
the Stark sisters, but he wasn’t counting on Bran filling in the blank parts of the
story that caused the division between Arya and Sansa. Baelish tried to persuade her that she was
mistaken, only to be interrupted by the voice of the all-seeing Three-Eyed Raven, revealing
Littlefinger’s betrayal of Ned Stark way back in season 1. That was a series wrap on Lord Baelish, as
Arya stepped up and slit the throat of what was arguably the most important character
in the narrative of the series thus far. The meeting of the heaviest hitters in the
Seven Kingdoms in the ruins of the Dragonpit at King’s Landing in the season 7 finale
gave the audience a taste of where everyone stands in the final stretch of the great game. Cersei, Jaime, and Tyrion Lannister, Euron
Greyjoy, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, a dragon, a White Walker, all the major players and
key elements in the struggle for the future of Westeros were front and center in one of
the most intense non-battle sequences in the series. Jon and Dany hoped to persuade the Lannisters
to at least temporarily call a truce and focus on the true enemy, the Night King and his
army of White Walkers Cersei, shaken by the exhibition, agrees to
the proposed truce on the condition that Jon won’t take up arms against the Lannisters. Alas, Jon Snow cannot tell a lie, he rejects
Cersei’s offer, saying that he can’t serve two queens, seemingly spoiling any chance
of a truce and a united force to stand against the Night King. In Tyrion’s last interaction with Queen Cersei,
in which he hopes to convince her to take up arms against the undead army bearing down
from the North, he gets sidetracked by daring Cersei to kill him. “I’m about to step into a room with the
most murderous woman in the world who’s already tried to kill me twice, that I know
of. Who’s an idiot?” This is not exactly an uncommon outcome of
the Lannister siblings’ conversations, but this time it ends when Tyrion breaks the tense
moment by downing several glasses of wine, another common outcome. As he attempts to find common ground with
his sister as the Hand of her rival queen, Cersei reveals that her family is her only
concern, and it dawns on Tyrion that Cersei is pregnant. Following this conversation, Cersei abruptly
declares that she’ll send her armies north to meet the White Walker threat, and admonishes
Tyrion to “remember my kindness.” Of course, that kindness comes with a nefarious
plan. Cersei reveals to Jamie, her brother and the
father to her unborn child, because that’s just how Westeros rolls, that she has conspired
with Euron Greyjoy. Instead of retreating to the Iron Islands
as he’s led everyone to believe, he’s actually sailing to Essos to retrieve the Golden Company:
20,000 mercenary soldiers poised to seize and control Westeros while the armies of the
Seven Kingdoms kill themselves in the North. Jamie, however, sees the reality of the White
Walkers’ threat, and wants nothing to do with Cersei’s double-cross. With Jaime leaving Cersei’s side knowing the
truth of her plan, it should be interesting to see what he does with this information
in season 8. He is driven, more than anything, by his desire
to keep the Seven Kingdoms safe for Cersei and his unborn child. In order to do this, he’s got to take up arms
against her cause. The audience last sees Jaime in season 7 riding
into the unknown as the winter’s first snowfall begins in King’s Landing. When we last saw Melisandre, the Red Priestess
of Asshai was delivering a very cryptic farewell on the cliffs of Dragonstone. “I’ve done my part. I’ve brought ice and fire together.” Melisandre worships the Lord of Light, and
has shown she is capable of powerful blood magic, though her powers and relationship
to the prophesied Prince That Was Promised have never been fully defined. Her destination is likely the Red Temple of
Volantis, home to hundreds of Red Priests and Priestesses, possibly with power similar
to Melisandre’s own, guarded by a thousand-man army known as the Fiery Hand. It’s theorized that Melisandre may return
to Westeros in season 8 to tip the balance of power with her massive army. It’s worth noting that in season 6, Melisandre
was revealed to be hundreds of years old, so it’s quite possible that she was in Volantis
for the Doom of Valryia, the legendary collapse of the advanced civilization that birthed
House Targaryen. In the season 7 finale, Tyrion deduces that
Cersei is pregnant. The very next shot is a cut to the Dragonpit,
original site of the King’s Landing Parley. One fan theory suggests that, at some point
during that time lapse, Tyrion may have struck an agreement with Cersei to ensure that her
unborn child would be the king or queen to succeed Daenerys. Tyrion believes Dany is unable to have children,
but his involvement in this plot would explain his look of great concern while listening
to Jon and Dany engage in some potentially baby-making behavior later in the finale. Another popular theory involving Tyrion is
known as “A+J=T,” or Aerys plus Joanna equals Tyrion. George R.R. Martin’s books often mention the
Mad King Aerys’ lust for Tywin Lannister’s wife, Joanna, and Joanna died while giving
birth to Tyrion. If it’s true that Aerys is Tyrion’s true father,
it could provide another reason for Tywin’s lifelong hatred for Tyrion and give a whole
new meaning to Tywin’s final words to him “You’re no son of mine!” Tyrion’s been a fan favorite since the very
first episode, so perhaps we’ll see him riding a dragon off into the sunset to close out
this epic tale. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about your favorite

  1. Ride a dragon into the sunset to close out this epic deal? Umm I don't know if they forgot but there are only two living dragons, not 3.

  2. Have been tap my toes for this year😀 bring it on come on !!! Game Of Thrones I know I am not the only one waiting. Popcorn time AND No One Better Bug ME When Game Of Thrones Comes On😈 Let's All Enjoy😃😃😃😃😃😃😃

  3. Final Episode: Jon Snow and Daenerys will fight each other, each riding one of the dragons, and the episode will end before we see who wins.

  4. Can I see the story now without the contemporary meanness, sadism and nudity? Perhaps I could, if I watched say, three episodes of last season. It began in season 1, many many advertizements ago.

  5. This gave me no information that I didn't get from watching the series, why do I need to watch this before seeing the final season?

  6. The scene where Peter balish was killed was so lame and just lazy writing by HBO writers, I'm pretty sure George RR Martin will kill of little finger in a much better way

  7. What the heck show are you watching? Baelish was the most important character in the narrative of the series thus far??! He isn't important enough to wash out Tyrion Lannister's under garments in the narrative of the series.

  8. I wonder what will happen to the scientific/magical experiment (bringing dead to life) of Cersei. Do you guys remember that? Or did I miss something?

  9. There is no answer for the errors committed during the filming… Like filming a cement road, fierce dogs chasing Sansa and Theon and then suddenly disappearing when Brienne and Pod appeared, extremely fake fire.. the same fuckin background in constant loop while Sir Jorah is taking the imp to Mereen. A thousand ships built in fuckin days, Sansa´s hair changing in fuckin seconds, day turns to night and night turns to day in seconds (what a strange world) and I won`t even mention the mistakes with fuckin candles, seem to be a lot of those, but I know it is hard to film it. Script has a lot of things that seem to be rushed… Like "man I dont give a fuck let´s just finish this shit so it comes to the show and spawns tons of cash" … Game of Thrones is addictive, no doubt, but when we watch it for the second time…and specially the first seasons…well…. become kinda ridiculous…

  10. I think bran stark will do the same thing in season 7 when the knight king touched him and knew exactly where he was but this time it will be a trap and it will end up giving them a chance to defeat the the knight king

  11. I’m also thinking the night king is taking his slow methodical time wiping everyone out w the goal of King’s Landing 🏰 to take Cercis Baby. Cerci goes mad and without a choice, marries the night king. Either Jamie sits the iron throne w Brianne and Cercis baby or Tyrion get the baby and rides away on the dragon together 😉

  12. Remember people there is still a prequel series to support and hype so don't think for a second all your questions will be answered in the final season of GOT. Just sayin'.

  13. I may be wrong (have been before) but I thought Arya’s name was pronounced Ar-ya-two syllables. As opposed to Ariah-three syllables!?

  14. They need to find several marksmen who are specifically assigned to focus on killing the dragon and the night king with dragon glass spear/arrow. 😜

  15. i cry when everything come out about jhon snow, really sad his whole life he thought he was a bastard. he never been a bastard he was the true king of the 7 kimdon

  16. Before getting back Jon snow back to life, Melisandre told sir Davos that she had seen a priest doing the same! Could the person which the priest brought back to life be a major character?

  17. Let me help you out with some definitions here. Omnipotence means all powerful. Omniscience means all knowing. At 4:30, wouldn't Bran be better described as Near Omniscient?

  18. It's omniscience since Bran knows everything, not omnipotence. Friendly reminder for future videos 🙂

  19. Why don’t they just put everyone on a ship and sail them to Esos the white walkers can’t swim and every one wins but the knight king does have a dragon so yeah I’m lost on how they will win I guess we will have to wait and see

  20. Am I the only one who wishes that a damn recap was just a video and not someone yapping the whole time?!!! Like we don't know what the hell is going on?? But all the recaps I've found has some attention whore who ruins everything.

  21. I'm a simple man so I just want the answer for Bronn's riddle…"how many dornishmen it takes to foock a goat?"

  22. I LOVE GOT and am so looking forward to this 😀 If anyone is interested, I made a video on my YouTube channel with some of my predictions for the last shows. Have fun watching GOT tonight everyone

  23. I wonder, when they let that wight out the box, it made a beeline for Cersei. I wonder if she's part of the night king agenda. Ehh probably nothing

  24. I’m sorry but u ain’t gonna call a white a white walker and just get away with it 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

  25. Horrendous waste of time watching these fake stories and dramas. I rather use my time helping real people suffering on this poor planet instead of this fantasies.

  26. This Conversation Between Jon Snow and the Script Writer Is the reason Behind Ridiculous Game of thrones ending

    Script Writer: Lets Make The Show Epic.

    Jon: I don't want it
