  • Jeremy: I hope this season isn't rushedHindsight: it was rushed

  • Jaime didn’t stab Aerys in the back. He slashed the Mad King’s throat. I get why they changed it- very Julius Caesar- just letting you know😇😇🤓

  • Funny thing, Jaime did make a bad Twitter joke recently lol.

  • this is the best epsiode out of season 8 the rest was shit

  • This episode gave me existential dread

  • how did you guys like that arya sex scene

  • he is going to betray the stark family again. that is guranteed when. that dickless guy told he is going to protect Bran. ITS A TRAP! that is what I was screaming when I first hear him say he will protect Bran. How the hell he rescued yara that fast n easily in first episode. something is off now I know why.

  • Best episode of the season

  • I just LOVED your comparison with twitter! XD

  • @2:10 👌

  • Jamie still raped his sister over the corpse of their eldest son ... and impregnated her a 4th time. I was starting to back him, till then. And best line, when Bran said to Jamie, the last thing Jamie said, before pushing Bran out the window.

  • “I’ve always liked the dynamic between Brienne and Jaime Lannister... I hope I didn’t jinx it” YOU JINXED IT, JEREMY!

  • At this point I would settle for uuuh the wrap up was ok.

  • “Don’t want the show to feel rushed” To late ..😔😔really is heartbreaking..

  • Love the Twitter reference.😂😂💯💯💯💯💯 facts

  • Everybody gets laid in GOT.

  • I love your reaction to Arya and Gendry ‘Well she’s over 18 fuck it, enjoy it’

  • Welp...he was certainly right about Arya sneaking in and stabbing SOMEONE! XD

  • GENDRYA AND BRAMIE.

  • Nah, "Perfect Strangers" is still a better TV show! ;-)

  • While the Arya and gendry thing was going on I’m just like: “nooo she’s a kid. Nooo I can’t watch this. She was just a kid nooo” It’s like having to watch your sister who was a kid a few years ago doing it in front of you

  • Why in the frick did we not talk about Pod's singing ???!!!!!!

  • Episode 3 jas possed me off wtf

  • season 8 episodes should be 90 minutes long

  • Dany will finish telling Jon what she was trying to say about Sansa needing to respect her. He will want to claim the throne to keep Dany from killing her.

  • I loved that comparison to the real world's unforgiving culture....lol! We're literally worse that Westeros😂 That's horrible.

  • Podrick's singing remind me of Pippin's in Return of the King... emotions too much to handle

  • Where is the Red witch

  • Ye oh little faith. It’s gonna get beyond intense. The set up was the calm before the hurricane.

  • THANK YOU! I'm glad I'm not the only one was concerned by this episode. We have 4 episodes left to wrap up what 7 seasons has built up too...and they're really gonna spend an entire episode just shooting the breeze for the most part? Yes, I loved being able to see everyone for the last time, but they better not just rush through the rest of the plot because they spent the entirety of episode 2 chatting in Winterfell.

  • 8 seasons, and "Sir say?"

  • This was more of a summary than review really

  • Spot on review Jeremy. My sentiments exactly. Great job! Thank you for doing these episode reviews!

  • Game of Thrones is pure cinematic trash! Fuck GOT! I’m glad it’s nearly over!

  • I can wait.

  • Totally agree, she is throne hungry and everything else is a sidenote. If King Robert was still alive, if no civil wars happened and the seven kingdoms were at peace she would still be invading and fighting against people like Ned Stark.

  • Theon quietly sliding underneath everyone's radar, gonna slay the night king and take that throne. Reek shall be born again a King. Bran knows, why else would he accept Theon being his defender. That is a massive responsibility given the importance of Bran and what is coming. Or he dies defending raven boy.

  • What I find very interesting about John and Danny, is that neither of them flinched at the thought of incest. They were both more concerned about his true lineage and her claim to the throne .

  • All I want is to be SURPRISED with a few nasty twists. Battles are cool but we also need betrayals and revelations.

  • What's the most interesting ending, two lovers have to fight over the throne, it doesn't have an ending because that's how humanity is it's endless fighting, or the Night King actually winning because humanity is kind of fucked in this world, I mean honestly all the rape and murder and torture is insane. The obvious and hollywood ending is Jon Snow gets the throne, they beat the white walkers and cersei, I haven't watched Game of Thrones for a second but I think that the nice way isn't the Game of Thrones way. I'd like Tyrion to get it but he can't get up on the throne

  • Game of Thrones changed into High School drama because they are dry on the source material. Deaneris and John Snow's force relationship and their romantic trip to the waterfall. Aria awkwardly harassing the blacksmith. Sansa jealous over John. The stupidity of the script since season 7 is sucking all the fun out of it. They have only one plot point: defeat the night king and Cersei so they will stretch the boring romances as fillers in the early episodes just as we get to the battle at the climax, and they will kill someone secondary characters off just to remind us it's Game of Thrones - they won't have balls to kill the main heroes.

  • Mk11 review?

  • No, just do your recap show JJ. No one asked for this.

  • I had no complaints. I couldn't care less how "it ends"....everyone's obsessed with that, I don't really give a f, I just love the journey. This season shows how...far everyone's come, its remarkable, really.

  • The last two episodes have been just a bunch of fan service. Stop with the boring chit chat and get to the battles.

  • Female empowerment? Brienne of fucking Tharth

  • What happened to that single hair strand, no one knows, except for Jeremy

  • Am I the only Bramie shipper down here?

  • Episode 2 can be described as “the calm before the storm”.

  • If everyone died in the next episode..it is going to be boring especially that everyone we know is he in winterfil Who is going to fight the white walker next..cersei 😒 I don't think so

  • First 2 episode of this season kinda sucks. The dialogue felt so dull and no wit. What happened to GOT dialogue? They used to be smart and witty. Now it's trying to be witty but end up something that I can write by myself

  • Jon will surely yield any claim to the Iron Throne to Danaerys. But Gendry the last Baratheon might be considered a threat by Danaerys. What if Cersei got wind of Gendry being alive through one of her spies... and SHE legitimizes Gendry, just to mess with Danaerys' paranoid mind... maybe even tell a lie about how Gendry is Cersei and Robbert Baratheon's kidnapped son or such nonsense, fake news and sht. The people will get behind the last Baratheon, whether he likes it or not. Gendry will no doubt yield to Danaerys... buuut, crazy runs in the family... Almost a reflection of the beginning of the story, dont you think??? Robert Baratheon wanted Danaerys dead just because she got pregnant. And now, Danaerys will want Arya dead because of her Baratheon baby. And Jon will NOT allow someone to threaten his baby sister.

  • I think lot of people missed the relevance of Jenny's song in this episode and this part of the story. The ghost of high heart told Aegon V that the prince who was promised would be born of the line of his grandchildren Aerys and Rhaella. This made Aegon force them to marry despite their mutual dislike of one another. Ghost of high heart was believed to have a descendant who was a child of the forest due to her tiny stature as well as her greenseer abilities Now we know that the children created The WW to destroy mankind, i believe that with their greensight the greenseers saw that Danaerys would bring dragons back into the world and the night king could kill and turn one or all of them for his army of the dead. The ghost of high heart always got the brotherhood without banners to sing Jenny's song in payment of her prophecies and would cry every time because she loved Jenny and Jenny died in the fire at summerhall. Long and short I think Jenny of oldstones was a total plant to get The Prince of dragonflies to abdicate paving way for Aerys and Rhaella to marry and birth Dany to set in motion the events we are now seeing. So the song was an awesome nod to that theory. Lot of history and prophecy in that song Thoughts?

  • Men! Lady Mormoth still rocks... don forget her please :D :D :D

  • My sacrilegious comment: The episode was boring. Calm before the storm. Just man up about it. The remaining episodes have an average runtime of 80 minutes, so hopefully more will happen.

  • If I don't see White Walkers spilling over the walls of King's Landing fuckin World War Z style... all 8 seasons were a waste of time 😂

  • This felt like the titanic band sinking with the ship

  • Queen Sansa! People follow her because of her kindness. She has been through hell and back!!! Dany rules by fear and manipulation, kinda like... Cercie!?! Sansa is the only on to sit on the throne with integrity. Mark it. Write it. So let it be written, so let it be done!

  • Jeremy! Watch and review season 1 of Barry on HBO. It’s so good!

  • Dude... Everything you just said has been in my mind for 2 weeks.

  • Lol ur comments always crack me up

  • where the hell is Edmere Tully?!?

  • "I don't want the show to feel rushed" said by the guy with the frenetic way of talking. HAHAHAHHAHAHA! Gotta love it.

  • Daenerys tells Sam Tully she killed his father and brother for no reason... Jamie lannister killed her psycho father the "mad king" a long time ago and has a fit.

  • I need a 1 on 1 between Danny and Jamie before all is said and done.

  • Jon: * hides women and children in the crypts knowing full well the night king can raise the dead * *Winterfell hurt itself in its confusion!*

  • Wasn't brienne technically already a knight? She was a kingsguard for that one guy that died, does that make you a knight or no?

  • This episode sucked lol. Too short, shit needs to hit the fan. On top of that they only have six episodes and a lot to cover in those

  • Brienne killed Stannis. She is the worst character in the show.

  • Arya..will kill Cersei , she will use Jamie's Face...yes he will die

  • I do miss when your videos were about the content. We are of an age, both from WA, and have similar views. Now it seems like 50% of your videos are about your sponsors .

  • Sooooo!!!! You guys all just going to ignore the fact that arya got laid on episode 69????. Also why was jaqen h'ghar's theme playing in the background??.

  • there was a lot of talking in this episode and yet nothing memorable or worthy has been said

  • Smh... There wasn’t too much talking

  • please stop moving your hand to much

  • It was one of my favourite episodes in the entire series, didn’t even need a giant fight 😂🤷‍♂️

  • Even better than the premiere.

  • an idea. Say that the app you talk about is only for the us so we outside the us donset try to get it....

  • They just sat there talking shit by the fireplace.

  • I always find it strange that people think the culture is "messed up" if they feel bothered about viewing others having sex. If anything that should be pretty normal since sex usually is a private thing that's for the consenting adults involved, not the viewers. I don't have an eagerness to watch my neighbors or friends have sex so I don't understand why people frown on others who see sex as a sacred private action. In regards to the Aria scene, I can see people being bothered by it for a few reasons. 1. She's been depicted as a minor for quite sometime and although the show has taken 8+ years to pass in real time, not nearly that amount of time has passed in the show timeline. As result it's hard for the audience to be convinced that this is an 18+ girl, and this is the closest thing to minor sex we are viewing. Reasonably most feeling this would find it unsettling. 2. Aria and Gendry weren't publicly having sex. They were doing it an intimate environment, not wanting to be seen or bothered, so as viewers invested in the show and the characters, Aria and Gendry feel like friends we know. Therefore it's not strange for said viewers to want to have a desire to give them privacy, as most of us would do for others in real life. Unfortunately the cameras keep rolling, and we're at their mercy. 3. The actual sex scene wasn't necessary. Aria and Gendry could have easily had the deed done with passionate kissing and then the camera cuts to them in bed. The statement is more subtle, intelligent, and less distracting. It also still conveys all the necessary emotions for the viewer. Unfortunately, many sex scenes are used as cheap emotional thrills instead of putting in the work to make a more genuine experience. It's similar to how it's easier to insult someone by calling them a "piece of crap" verses referring to them as "An insignificant, piece of festering, feculent scum." The 1st comment is easier and simpler to understand but it's no way near as powerful, effective, and memorable as the 2nd comment. 4. The sex scene felt more like clever filler that wasn't adding to the story in any meaningful way. It's kind of like how last week Jon and Dany flew on the dragon, which was cool but then when they went to the waterfall to talk about how they could hide their for thousands of years and no one would find them, it felt like they were stretching that scene out unnecessarily so that the show could get enough screen time so fans wouldn't complain about it being to short. If you want to make this not clever filler, display that "running away" moment as something the characters are genuinely interested in. It doesn't have to be long, but brief enough to show a higher degree of complexity and humanism in the characters. Sadly the show missed it's mark there and it missed it's mark with Aria and Gendry. Actually, for Aria and Gendry instead of showing the sex scene you could have replayed earlier moments in the series where the 2 interreacted and fans started to pickup that the 2 of them being together was something noticed since back then. It would have been a nod that this series has been on for so long and all the memories made and cherished during the 8 year run.
