Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 Recap

HBO’s Game of Thrones is back for its final season, and we will be recapping each and every battle and backstab. In the season premiere of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow returned to Winterfell with his queen, Daenerys Targaryen, and Euron came through for Cersei.

Homecoming

Jon and Daenerys’ arrival at Winterfell mirrored King Robert’s arrival of the very first episode. Jon greeted Bran and Sansa, though Arya was out in the crowd. Sansa didn’t trust Daenerys and neither did many of the Northerners. The Stark bannermen were angry that Jon bent the knee. When Jon and Arya finally reunited in the godswood, Arya sided with Sansa and warmly reminded Jon of their family bonds.

At the Winterfell forge, Gendry and the Hound had a disagreement about a dragonglass ax Gendry was making for him. Arya interrupted, and after a brief acknowledgement from the Hound, Gendry and Arya finally reunited.

Tyrion and Sansa had an awkward reunion after he announced in the Great Hall that Cersei promised to send Lannister soldiers. Sansa couldn’t believe that Tyrion took Cersei at her word.

Back in King’s Landing

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 Recap

Euron arrived in King’s Landing with the Golden Company for Cersei. He wanted to bed Cersei, and she finally gave him his chance. Euron wondered to her how he compared with Robert and Jaime.

Back on Euron’s ship, Theon rescued his sister, Yara. Though she gave him a healthy headbutt, it was clear she forgave him. But when Yara wanted to sail back to the Iron Islands, Theon agreed half-heartedly. He wanted to head to Winterfell to fight for the Starks, and Yara let him.

Finally, Qyburn brought Bronn the crossbow Tyrion used to kill Tywin. Cersei was paying a large sum in advance for Bronn to kill Tywin, and Bronn did not say no.

Jon Knows

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 Recap

The romance between Jon and Daenerys blossomed as they rode dragons together. But this should’ve been a clue for them about Jon’s true parentage, as Samwell and Bran decided that Jon needed to know as soon as possible.

Daenerys had informed Sam of his father and brother’s execution. In the family crypt, Sam explained to Jon that his mother was Lyanna Stark and his father was Rhaegar Targaryen, making him the true heir to the Iron Throne and not Daenerys. Jon wrestled with the knowledge that Ned Stark, the most honorable man Jon ever knew, had lied to him his entire life.

Bran had another encounter. He noticed Jaime Lannister enter Winterfell.

The Umber Boy

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 Recap

Lord Umber was just a young boy. He asked for more horses and carts to transport his people, and Sansa granted him what they could spare. At the end of the episode, Tormund and Beric ran into Edd and discovered that the Army of the Dead had gotten to Lord Umber. The left him in a body-part spiral as a warning.
