Live Reactions to the GoT Season 8 Premiere
Caution: If you somehow stumbled in here and yet don’t want to be spoiled, you should probably leave!
Hey Throners (I just made that up, you love it? right?), Season 8 is finally here after two years, and my desire to see more of Daenerys and Cersei’s wardrobes will finally be satisfied. I guess the plot is important too though.
Regardless, for your post-viewing pleasure, I recorded my live thoughts/thots on the final season’s premiere. Did you ask for this? No. Will you love it? Who’s to say. Will you continue reading? Absolutely. Let the games begin:
0:00, They redid the intro, everything is so SMOOTH
0:045, Damn the Iron Throne looks good I’ve missed you
2:38, So many Unsullied, sad they will all die
2:50, Daenerys absolutely did wear THAT white fur coat to match her horse, talk about accessorizing
4:20, The entire clique rolled up to Winterfell. Wow we see you, Greyworm and Missandei <3
4:50, Only 2 dragons :,(
5:49, Stressed Kit Harrington is still hot
6:10, Jon/Bran reunion is underwhelming, go find Arya now
6:45, Daenerys/Sansa meeting is TENSE
8:03, Lyanna Mormont serving condescension like the fierce qween she is
9:26, Tyrion is once again the only rational man in this show, if he dies so will I
10:13, “What do dragons eat” -Sansa “Whatever they want” - Daenerys. This exchange has me QUAKING in my boots for Sansa. Don’t get yourself eaten sweetie ;)
11:25, Sansa/Tyrion reunion is cute and sweet and I love this pairing please more this season
12:49, Never mind Sansa is COLD
13:21, Arya/Jon reunion is so tender wow I need these Starks to not die
14:46, I thought women were supporting women this year damn I guess feminism is dead
15:28, Cersei spins a look every scene ugh I missed her
16:18, Queer icon Yara should NOT be tied up unless she’s into that and it’s clear she doesn’t like this untie her please
17:34, This fire room is ~ lit ~ and almost as hot as Euron is for Cersei
19:04, “You want a queen, earn her” - Cersei. Yes honey
20:35, Ok this is a full-on sex scene all of a sudden Bronn get it together
22:32, If Bronn actually kills Jaime or Tyrion this is will be the worst storyline
22:58, Ok so Euron and Cersei had sex, go off I guess. Also, Cersei whispering “I wanted those elephants” was an ENTIRE mood and a half and really resonated with me, not sure why
23:44, This is EVIL FLIRTING please stop and also never stop
24:20, “I’m gonna put a prince in your belly” thank god this scene is over oh my god
25:00, Yes Theon save your sister family is everything
29:54, The dragons aren’t eating and I’m stressed about their internal gut health
30:31, Jon, she is literally asking you to mount the dragon just get on
32:22, This dragon riding scene is amazing and I’m sure it cost 4 million dollars
34:00, The dragon is really out here trying to cock-block Jon just let the man get it
35:32, Are Arya and Gendry… Flirting? About daggers? Why is everybody so horny?
37:40, Jon and Sansa stop fighting I don’t like this energy
38:50, YES SAM I MISSED YOU, that smile, we needed that
40:00 Throwback to when Daenerys killed Sam’s entire family YIKES. Sam please stop crying I’m so uncomfortable
42:10, Is Sam gonna tell Jon.. he is in love with… his aunt?
43:45, Sam you could have had 30 conversations with Jon and you chose to ask him if he would have killed your family too? Was that the most productive option?
44:40, Jon learning his parents were Raeghar and Lyanna has been such a long time coming I’m finally satiated
45:57, Umm ok Olberic and Tormond about to walk into a literal pack of Whitewalkers. I’m assuming one or both will die and honestly thats really shitty of GoT to do that to me
49:26, Whitewalker kid screaming was so scary that was terrible. Also amazing… body part design I guess? that bone circle must have taken a lot of work. Nobody relevant died, my heart is safe
51:02, Jaime gets hotter every season
51:20, Jaime seeing Bran after crippling him 7 seasons ago was a huge throwback I’m shook
52:00, It’s done? Already? I want so much more please take me to next Sunday
And that’s all for this week folks. Did you like this? It doesn’t really matter you probably only get this once so I guess re-read this every week for the rest of the season and pretend it is new content. Let us all pray Jon and Daenerys will live happily ever after with their dragons (and baby maybe? She might be pregnant after last season just saying…) Until next time (?) Throners.
