Game of Thrones recap for Season 8 – everything you need to know
Game of Thrones | Season 8 Episode 2 | Preview (HBO)
What’s happening in Game of Thrones Season 8? What’s going on with Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Jaime, Tyrion, Sansa, Arya and the rest?
Jon Snow has been mumbling about the coming cold for seven seasons, the citizens of King’s Landing have been pulling their winter woollies out of the back closet and now it’s finally time. Winter is here on Game of Thrones!
Game of Thrones season 8 kicked off with a bang on Sunday, and episode one was everything we hoped for. And because this show is more complicated than the Dewey Decimal system at the Citadel library, we’ve got everything you need to know from episode one in a handy recap.
Episode 1 Recap: Reunions are coming
For those of us who just rewatched the wall-melting, dead-marching, ice-dragoning action of the end of season 7, the season 8 premiere was a lot more about establishing action and plot points for the episodes ahead.
Daenerys’ armies are on their way north and that means it’s time for everyone to descend on Winterfell and take stock before the battle against the undead starts.
You want reunions? You’d better believe you’re going to see some reunions!
Everyone’s here! Tyrion sees Sansa and they have the kind of “whatcha been up to?” banter that you’d have with your ex-husband at parent-teacher night. Jon sees Arya! The two play a game of “check out my sweet sword” and Arya massively downplays how many people she’s killed. It was the Winterfell equivalent of your bigger brother asking you how many beers you had at that underage party. Everyone sees Bran, but they all kind of pretend they have to go send that important raven so they don’t have time to chat now, sorry.

Dany marches into Winterfell like it’s no big thing.

Game of Thrones 6×09 – The battle between Jon & Ramsey’s forces begins [Full scene]
After Ramsey kills Rickon in a brutal way,
Jon Snow charges forward while the Bolton
forces unleash their first arrows.
Jon loses his mount along the way,
and it’s all going as Ramsay had planned.
The Bolton forces charge,
and Jon draws Longclaw.
It looks like the bastard of Winterfell’s last stand,
but then his cavalry slams
into the Bolton army, and he’s spared a trampling.
Ramsay orders his archers to fire,
even if it puts his soldiers at risk,
while Davos declines to do the same on his side.
Carnage is everywhere,
and Jon Snow cuts down all comers.
Men are slaughtered left and right, horses fall, mud flies,
blood spurts, heads are smashed,
hearts are pierced.
There are literally mountains of bodies, but the fighting isn’t done.
