‘Game of Thrones': How the Final Season Just Set the Stage For The Long-Awaited Great War, INSIDE THE EPISODE (VIDEO)


In the closing moments of the final season’s second episode, Game of Thrones finally delivered on one of its oldest promises: all out war between the armies of the living and the dead, with the home of House Stark as the bloody battlefield.


Heroes are destined to fall, much like the snow the Starks are always warning everyone about. Thankfully, no bodies have dropped quite yet, which was far from a certainty heading into the episode, given the final notes of the season premiere: Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) arriving in Winterfell and reuniting with Lord Brandon Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), the boy he pushed out a window oh so long ago.


Jaime’s fate was one of the biggest question marks heading into the second week of the final season, as so many different characters stand out with reasons to want the man dead: Daenerys Targaryen  (Emilia Clarke), for instance, whose father was murdered by Jaime long ago. Her wrath toward the Kingslayer was one of the hallmarks of the episode.
