    Yeah, episode 2 was a celebration of humanity, and a reminder of why we care about these characters. I don't want to see them just up and die.

    If I remember correctly, there were talks of the final season being made into a movie instead. This is just a longer version, and we just finished Act I. Kind of crazy to think the Battle for Winterfell could possibly be wrapped up after 1 episode.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 8

    My guesses as to casualties:

    1. Arya. Sadly, unless she and Gendry are going to be King & Queen of the Iron Throne, her story is basically complete. They let her get a poke in for good measure.
    2. Brienne. Being knighted by Ser Jamie was the capper. She'll die heroically in battle, possibly saving the very man who knighted her.
    3. Theon. Him returning to Winterfell was a death sentence, and he knew it.
    4. Missandei or Greyworm. One or both. They couldn't have telegraphed this more than they did.
    5. Tormund. He'll see Brienne fall and it'll drive him into a frenzy-filled berzerk and he'll be offed in battle.
    6. Ser Jorah. He was given the sword by Sam, and admitted Tyrion was a great choice of "hand" for Dany. His story is finished.

    Possibly Jamie. I've talked to a lot of people who think he buys it in this battle. I disagree. I think he's got a lot of story left.

    **edited 4 - I mistakenly had Melisandre for Missandei

    I think everyone is at least a coin flip chance to die. Arya would surprise me though. There’s some faceless man stuff that can still come into play with her.

    This is George R R Martin we're talking about here. EVERYBODY dies. No one is left for the iron throne!

    4 episodes to go, they can't kill everyone in the 3rd episode.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 8

    Is the Night King making it through this next episode?

    And if not, who gets him? I'm picking Arya. I also think they're messing with horror movie tropes by having Arya and Gendry get down in this past episode.

    Sure they can. Then the few remaining survivors meet in King’s Landing to fight Cersei for the throne. This coming episode is going to be a bloodbath.

    This battle might take 2 episodes.

    82 minutes of continuous battle coming up, folks. Longest battle scene in media history (I think the previous longest was the battle of Helms Deep in The Two Towers, right?)

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 8

    Theon Greyjoy has had such an interesting story arc. He has changed so much from the first season.

    He has been torn down both mentally and physically. All that remains is some vague sense of loyalty for his sister and the lessons Ned Stark taught him.

    Is Arya's new weapon made of Valeryan steel? If so, I might agree with you...

    If the NK does go down, my bet is that Dany becomes the big bad for the remainder of the show.

    Arya's dagger is Valyrian steel. Her spear might be artful misdirection.

    And Dany is problematic - superiority complex, knows nothing about the continent, penchant for roasting dissenters with her dragons, backed by murderous, rapey Dothraki horde.

    Just as an aside, I'm hoping the Dothraki get wiped out in this next episode. I feel like they're a warm weather team playing a road game in the frozen tundra.

    My god. I dont even know what to say.

    Best episode of television I have ever seen in my life. I think that was better than all movies ever made except like 20 or so.

    Just amazing.

    btw, I'm assuming everyone who hasn't watched yet knows to avoid this thread. I was surprised at the number of survivors.

    They just canít let go of a few of these characters that quickly. I thought Podrick and the Hound would eat it.
