Game of Thrones: Season 8, Episode 2 – “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” Review


As a calm before the storm episode, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” offers plenty of feel-good moments. In a typical season, the early episodes lay the groundwork for the big spectacle event, usually episode 9. In this final shortened season, episode 3 will be epic, so “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” is a quiet prelude with many plot points to set up. Fan reaction is very positive, even more so than the premiere. I personally enjoyed it but because I’m not super sentimental the heart-felt moments didn’t resonate with me as much as other fans.

Game of Thrones: Season 8, Episode 1 – “Winterfell” Review

With only 6 episodes in the final season, “Winterfell” sets up the necessary groundwork. The season premiere is spent getting characters up to speed on what the viewers have already known for years (the show last aired in 2017) and in doing so also serves as a solid refresher episode. When the episode ended my reaction is “oh common on!” Not because the episode is bad, but because I didn’t want it to end. It’s great to get back to the Game of Thrones world, the characters and to whatever may happen next.

Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 1 “Dragonstone” Review

Spoilers Ahead on Game Of Thrones Season 7 Premiere 

“Shall we begin?” Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere entitled “Dragonstone” is immensely satisfying. After an extra long hiatus, it’s just a treat to get back into the Game of Thrones universe. The producers have promised a faster pace. One down and only 6 more to go this season. Even though there wasn’t a tonne of action in this premiere, the measured pace felt perfect for what it was trying to achieve. Okay, maybe for some viewers the pot montage is a bit much, I found it amusing.

Spoilers Ahead on Game Of Thrones S06E06

“Blood of my Blood” is a fitting episode title. Of course, it’s a direct reference to Dany’s speech to her Khalasar. It also relates to Sam’s kin and his new makeshift family of little Sam and Gilly even though they aren’t blood relatives. Family is a thread which also connects to Bran’s storyline where Uncle Benjen makes his return.
