17 Details In 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Episode 5 You Might Have Missed

Comments

  • They definitelly planned Daenerys going mad and burning down King's Landing from the get go, but I also think they were planning to have Jon end up on the throne but scraped it cause they thought it was too easy to predict.

  • The letter had no meaning anyway

  • People : Do you want to rule winterfell, Lord Bran? Nope. Three eyed Raven, remember? Later : Do you want to rule the six kingdom? Bran : Hold my wheelchair.

  • Jon Snow's Script for Season 8: *"Fall Back"* *"I don't want the throne"* *"You're my Queen"*

  • Qyborn didn’t create the scorpions he just re made them. People of Westeros were using them all the way back to Ageons conquest.

  • THE LORD OF ALL THE HORSES

  • Arya Stark was right ……NO ONE likes the ending of GOT

  • Good channel. About to subscribe!

  • I will burn you alive!

  • The white horse is a reference to the Faceless Men's banner of black and white, and her turning from revenge and death toward the future and light. You guys read way too much LotR into this.

  • Why did d dragon fly away with deany’s body? What would it do with the body?

  • Varys talks with Jon snow while having a walk. To the left of varys.. is that a WHITE PLASTIC COVER at the beach??

  • Idiot

  • This is reaching.

  • This video is for the extreme dumbasses who dont even try to understand ongoing action

  • very good!!!

  • stupid writing in last season what’s the point of this letters with the ending that’s stored in place

  • "Do we miss anything?", yes, those six and a half minutes I can't get back after this tripe of a video.

  • They didn't mention that there was a shot of the girl holding the white horse lying on the ground burned to a crisp.

  • You missed one thing, game of thrones started good but ended shit, just like this video

  • I love these videos!! It really helped to tie things together for me AND be a lot more satisfied with the ending, which I had mixed feelings about. I understand it much better now and see that there was actually a lot of thought put into it.

  • Who got all of Varys letters?!?! He wrote more than one and he had that little girl spy!

  • This is the least insightful GoT video I've ever seen. Also, showing the shadow of a dragon on Kings Landing isn't foreshadowing, unless you were trying for a stupid joke. Remind me not to watch your videos.

  • Wait so are they saying game of thrones is like a sequels to lord of the rings

  • 3:55- 3:57 da fuk? only see people running.

  • Oh, I kind of forgot about that

  • We also hear Light of the Seven variations played throughout the carnage, which was composed for, as you say, destroying the sept, which a lot of fans watched and went 'okay so Cersei is the mad queen that's right' and now it's playing while we see the true mad queen which is a cool lil detail

  • If they wanted to reference our Lord of the rings, they should of had Sir Peter Jackson rewrite series 8! Then it wouldn't be the dumpster fire the plot lines, characters, and even battles became.😠

    • Like he did with The Hobbit?

  • Sansa...little bird.

  • Varys talks with Jon snow while having a walk. To the left of varys.. is that a WHITE PLASTIC COVER at the beach??

  • Why did d dragon fly away with deany’s body? What would it do with the body?

  • What was the point of this

  • melisandre unkowingly sacrificed shireen baratheon to save arya stark in s8e5, "only death can pay for life" theres alot of evidence to support this from s3e5 onwards

  • It end stupid

  • How about that varys tried to poison Dany but seen as she was t eating it couldn't happen, I think alot of people missed that and his payment to the girl was the jewls on his rings

  • You missed the hint that Varys talking to that little girl was probably trying to poison Danny but she wouldn’t eat.

  • "You are my queen, I've found the queen!" - I've heard this before! So, D&D were foreshadowing that Jon actually VRChat knuckle? Does it make sense?

  • In the end Jon's true lineage amounted to nothing

    • Why did it show Bran learning this for so long? literally the end of S7 was Bran finding out Jon was the heir, but it meant nothing in S8 and Bran was like 'yea i want the throne'

  • You missed the part the thumbnail was showing.

  • Arya is like pewds.. "NO KILL"

  • The worst season ever

  • BRAN IS THE SITHLORD

  • CAMERA MAN at 3:52 with his hand and camera on the left side. I guess it's not just the Directors, Writers, and Producers who gave up on Kings Landing with Deny. But also Editors all gave up, too and BURNED THEM ALL GOT Season 8 Episode 5...

  • At the ending of the episode we see Araya Stark standing on the ground which is a reference to the first scene with Araya where she's also standing on the ground.

    • She breathed too i think

  • definitely Shadowfax

  • pause at 3:54 on the left is that a guy holding a camera?

    • It might've been a 'behind the scenes' cut

  • My dear Sandor, i'm gonna be missing him!

  • It’s not detsils, it’s lack of syorytelling, that’s why you to look for some lil shit to get wtf is going on

  • Very Well With A Horse

  • Yeah, You missed explaining why it was that there was green flames t/o the city as drogon burned it. Was this cersies plan, was it just stored up dragons fire? Was it a military tactic in case the red keeps walls were breached , to "burn them all" . Did dany really save Jon & greyworm from being burned up by the dragons fire if so?

  • The whole time when drogon burning the kings landing, we never seen dany’s face or presence. Maybe she’s trying to stop drogon. Drogon got mad when he heard the ring of the bell. Hahahhaahhaha

  • Am I the only one to see a resemblance between Arya riding the white Horse in the last scene and the NK riding the horse.?? She will come up as the new Night King.

  • Bran stark couldn't have seen either the throne or the dragon shadow. He can only see the present and the past as he said for himself. He lives in the past.

    • It's been really unclear of what he can see. Dany supposedly saw the future in the Towers scene thingy. But there's been times where it's been questionable

  • 18th missed detail : a good season 8.

  • I read that Lena Hedey double(Cercei) has played again in season 8. Is cercei alive?

  • I didn't notice the little girl holding the horse, however I did notice when she was burned...they held the camera on the horse ...and I thought of Shareen (sp. Stannnes' daughter that got burned and Davos found her horse burned)

  • You know what did I miss The Night King !!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hello everyone!Who would like to see parody of introduction from game of thrones.Invite everyone to watch!Thank you.

  • I know everyone hates Season 8 lets me to believe they are not paying attention but I get it people are simple minded and did not pay attention to GOT at all missing certain clues of course you would think season eight is trash lol

    • I think it's simple people that are enjoying this season, there are a tonne of issues with decisions and things that have happened (jon is aegon, teased for 7 seasons, and meant nothing) that people pull apart

  • I think that the white horse symbolizes the first gift kahl drogo gave daenerys, a white maré and the blood on it means arya is going to kill Danny

  • What you missed is this season sucked! On Epic levels!

  • Another detail you might have missed: All the characters and horses have better GPS than your modern navigation system - Euron Greyjoy even got the advanced version with an included people tracking device. Intelligence agencies around the world are now making excessive offers to get their hands on it.

  • We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!. We want more "Game of Thrones"!.

  • Some of the things you call 'foreshadowing' is just reach.

  • Good vid! Finally a "17 things you didn't..." video that isn't long winded af

  • OR... is this a reference to a totally unrelated series of fantasy books? Think about it...

  • The falling 'white stuff' in the throne room is not ash. It is snow as there are icicles formed on the metal pillars.

  • Once Jaime slept with Brienne he knew he'd rather die than do it again.

  • IT MAY SOUND CRAZYYYY!!!! Jon is the only one who carried legacy and honor of Ned stark .Fate took him to different places , people and situations but he always followed the principles of Stark. It is difficult ,he is well aware it may take his life ,people may hate him but he is the honorable and selfless man Westeros may never deserve.From outside it may look dumb but it takes courage and pain to stay honorable all the time !!!!

  • Brienne, begging Jamie to stay with her. Jamie, my sister is hateful so am I

  • When Dany became mad and burned the hole city she burned her own soldiers as well...

  • Who cares the details now. It's just an rushed show

  • Dany "I didnt get my snatch gobbled, so I burned a city" Targie

  • Davos gets the Throne. You're welcome.

  • I wonder if the narrator understands the difference between a reference and a coincidence... Shock horror! The baddies die at the end just like they did in Kindergarten Cop.

  • Wow.. this is a really good list.. good eye 👏🏾

  • It doesn’t snow in Kings Landing it was absolutely foreshadowing danny burning it all.

  • Bran will sit on the iron throne in the end.

  • Varys was trying to poison dany. One of his "little birds" who was in the kitchen tried to poison her but she says danys army was watching so she couldn't do it.. Varys then told her to try again the next day

  • Starbuck's cup with the name of Mother of Dragons written on it.

  • You missed the fact that Circe Lannister had ambushed Kings Landing booby-trapped Kings Landing with dragon fire that’s why we saw the green plumes while the city was burning showing that she would have sacrificed the city and people in kings landing

  • What if Jamie and Cersei didn't actually die. . .

  • None of us have missed these

  • I think Dany went off script in her destruction.

  • How are we sure Jamie and Cersei truly died?

  • U missed wildfire going off while Danny destroyed the city

  • pls dont post spoilers before ive seen the show! its rud e

  • The white horse avatar who comes to end the age of degeneration. Arya is the true ruler perhaps.

  • Bottom line of this series: Jon Snow you know nothing. SHAME!

  • Good review. Varys and his several messages I often wondered how many crows ever got to see. If the series was perhaps expanded longer perhaps they could have covered it. Three things come to mind, the Red Witch in Maureen that said they would help Daey, but it never happened & although the Stannis Red Witch did help against the Whites. The prophecy of Bran Flying never happened. The Shame Lady or the Doern Women in their cells shown their final doom (I guess to be assumed happened?).

  • You missed the part where the writers forgot how to write. Most obvious but shocking part of season 8

  • You missed the detail that the little girl holding white horse is the burnt corpse holding her mother at the final scene still clutching the burnt toy horse.

  • You missed the Starbucks lol

  • Was it just me or was Lord Varys trying to poison Daenerys? That conversation with the little girl made me think he was....

    • Yep! He was, she knew, and that's why she wasn't eating.

  • Arya will kill Danny is last Ep. "green eyes" is yet to happen

    • The eye thing was nothing to do with the ending, it was just said as a general statement. The writers hijacked it to have her kill the night king. 'Green eyes' means nothing

  • Yes!!! The white horse appears burned in the hands of the child... At the beginning I thought it was Jon’s sword, but now I realized it’s the girls. I think it means Arya will take revenge.

  • They ended everything so bad and uncompleted

  • Where is Aaron Rodgers?

  • Tell me what tyrion asked to davos to steal? Any theories?

  • The Hound should have kissed Arya before he walked away.!!!!!!
