Game of Thrones Discussion: S8E1 (Winterfell)

Welcome to the Game of Thrones discussion open thread. In this thread there will be a safe space for people to discuss the most recent episode of Game of Thrones with other fans of the show without the need to clog up the traditional open thread or be buried in spoilers.


I will attempt to update and publish this thread on Monday mornings with my thoughts about the current week's episode, and update with any interesting links I may find throughout the day. don't expect too much monologing from me though, as most of my thoughts come best in the comments section. I just plan to have enough words to be able to publish w/ the correct word count.


Here are my thoughts for the current episode, they're probably a bit hazy and I may have mis-remembered some details. I tend to drink a lot while watching this show.

Fil's thoughts on Winterfell:

This was a great set up episode, in my opinion, to get all the sappy reunion stuff out of the way quickly. I liked a lot of the mirrors from the original pilot, w/ the "queen" (Dany) coming in similar to how King Robert came through. Arya was lurking and Bran, instead of climbing, was just staring. Sansa as "warden of the north" even dropped a Ned line "how are we going to feed all these people"

Euron remains awesome ... he's a pirate, so obviously one of my favorites.

the jon snow dragon step dad moment was kind of awkward.

I'll have more thoughts throughout the comments, and i'll post random memes and such as well. I'm too lazy to brush up on my HTML to post them up here.


5 things we learned from the premier

Rules for the Game of Thrones thread:

1. You can discuss spoilers, but don't get mad at people for discussing spoilers if you aren't caught up
2. Keep the thread civil. we are all adults, people might have differing theories. keep the name calling in the other open thread
3. no non GOT discussion, including politics, religion, etc. (food and watch party plans can be included as long as it relates)
4. Despite being a risque show (boobs and swords) be smart, don't post anything NSFW.
5. If you are not a fan of the show ... get out of this thread. don't be a dick and post stupid stuff. I'll flag any disparaging comments about how this is a football blog and we shouldn't have other interests and blah blah blah.
