Waiting for the premiere of the ultimate season of the sequence has been made to attend and we are able to lastly begin to say goodbye to this nice tv product that so nice and good moments he has given us, but additionally some disappointing, I need to say. In common, it is a chapter that I preferred lots and seeing these characters that we left over a yr in the past has been thrilling. On the premise of this optimistic evaluation of the chapter additionally has its shadows, and at this level, has to sing lots.

Starting with the most effective of the chapter:

– The new intro and the soundtrack are spectacular and already warn you that this season shall be completely different from the remaining.

– Sansa Stark. The character I preferred extra, the true Lady of Invernalia not solely involved about profitable the warfare however getting a stay to it and survive after. If they have been going to demonizarla with the “Sansa look aviesa” for me to have achieved the other: create a personality, courageous, involved for his individuals and uncertain of the intentions of the queen, international, but nonetheless be a Lady northern.


– Samwell Tarly. Part of being the most effective interpretation on the a part of the actor, I believe that a personality is plausible, with a thousand insecurities and with an habit nearly forgotten to your Home that makes you satisfied that Jon can be a a lot better king of Daenerys.

– The reunions. As the primary chapter seeks to remind us the way it was the West and the way it begins in addition in the direction of the inevitable battle. Special point out to Arya with Sandor and Gendry and Arya with Jon.

– Cersei Lannister. But for the performing of the actress that is ready to catch the guts and estrujártelo with a single look. By the way in which, I personally imagine that she was pregnant with fact, which has already misplaced and that Qyburn has informed you that you simply will be unable to get pregnant, or has misplaced, who was to be the daddy.

The weakest of the chapter:

– Tyrion Lannister. Of personajazo witty, considerate and incisive-to-secondary comedian that solely has, for the second, a subject on which to make unhealthy jokes.

– Time “How to coach your dragon”. It appears to Me a scene visually very cool however I discover it very pressured. If you had earlier than a couple of transient sentences in regards to the matter in plan “what would you assume Invernalia in the event you have been driving a dragon?” Agree that Drogon left to play however I get the sensation that to do one thing spectacular , we have gone from zero to hundred with out clarify how or why.


– Euron Greyjoy. HBO’s bundled with Dorne and topped with this Euron. I perceive that it might match within the body you’ve got been given within the sequence however it appears to me completely irrelevant and secondary , and the Euron Greyjoy from a Song of Ice and Fire is the protagonist of all that’s taking place round you. It is obvious that since he got here up with this character for the sequence failed in every thing.

– The Other artists. The atrocious approach by which simply the little Ned Umber is grotesque and terrifying, however I misses one thing basic and that’s that it appears to me one thing emerged from nothing. Is that as a result of I’ve seen each the image (the Children of the Forest and Rocadragón) because the figures that create the Other, however right here there was a soar for my little or no coherent. I additionally assume that it’s a type of desecrating non secular symbols/magic of its creators however I appear pressured to place it now. If the King of the Night HBO doesn’t converse as a result of he’s the incarnation of loss of life, why now begin to depart messages?

In the tip, I repeat that it’s a chapter that I preferred lots, I’ve loved and reviewed a minimum of a few occasions however I used to be left with the sensation that you simply have risked little or no and that you just have been to present us the that we’re used to seeing however nonetheless for me it has been excellent. A particular point out for the late Summer or Bran within the courtyard training the artwork of invisibility, of Drax.

Mix the will after such a very long time, with the reduce of the Jonerys on the again of the dragon, a scene caught to shoe-horn with out ft or head. El Jonerys I do not dislike it as an idea, however the way in which of carrying it out is a truño of colossal dimension. Reduce the political state of affairs on the enchoche of two postpúbers rebels. He would have modified these minutes of dragon, by a pair of planes distant Ghost.

Also, the plot of Cersei has misplaced all its power to scale back it to a comparability of sexual vigor amongst its lovers.

On the opposite hand, the return of Sam and the information of the loss of life of his father and brother, Jaime acquired by Bran, the embrace of an Arya nearly human, for my style are the principal dishes of a long-awaited return.

PD: The look aviesa Sansa already drained… And that Sophie is on the stage of final season.



What sophisticated to start building this finish. A last anticipated by many, for others, not a lot for being a doable spoiler and feared safety by the dearth of pointers and frames of the books. So many issues could be stated of this 8×01, the obvious is that es an introductory chapter to introduce nearly all of the characters grouped collectively and plant the chips on the board what’s going to occur quickly.

Many reunions, many characters crammed into the North… And personally I believe that not being a chapter is unhealthy, is just not the one we deserved, nor the one that would have been weaving with willow rods that HBO had prepared since final season.

First, the brand new header is nice, with many hidden keys and extra tight than the earlier. The second factor, an apparent parallelism with the start of the sequence with the music and surroundings of the arrival of king Robert and his court docket Invernalia. The third factor, the worst begin of a doable dialogue, a Tyrion caricature of a statesman of the books making jokes about eggs. What actually was vital? What HBO seeks to entertain the viewers so impolite?

El destino de Varys puede cambiar en serie y libros: no hay (F)Aegon en la HBO

Large Sansa, distrustful and really pragmatic versus Dany very pushy and conceited. Collide between them to the arrival and collide through the discussions within the throne room. Lesson once more to Sansa to Tyrion, with a “you have believed what you’ve got been informed Cersei”, Tyrion is diminishing season after season with unhealthy recommendation and unhealthy methods. A disgrace, as a result of this reunion of strategists was to have taken gold. Bran turns into a bit of furnishings that’s all the time in the midst of Invernalia, however with an excellent reunion with Jon. “-you are certainly a person..”. -“roughly”.

Subsequently, the remainder of encounters happen a little bit pressured , and with failures of method actually Doesn’t we solid out into the arms of Jon, nothing extra to see? are you going to attend for Sam days to go to see Jon? What Bran and Sam wouldn’t have informed Sansa the reality about Jon? Many crossings of characters, that resolve, some higher than others: Arya with the Dog, (I gave to a little bit extra), and evidently there’s something greater than friendship and a few pressure between her and Gendry. To all of this, what you’re asking him to construct a gun?

Ill set the scene within the Landing of the King, with Cersei that will get up shut and private however not a lot with a histrionic Euron that carries it to the mattress with out a lot problem and with the unknown of whether or not it is going to or is not going to proceed to pregnant. New price pointless tits and ass with Bronn. And absurd what of the crossbow, it may have completed earlier than with Tyrion and Jaime… now what provides you the crossbow to Bronn to clarify who sends you? Arrival of the Company’s Golden, and evidently Cersei will simply must do pots by the dearth of elephants.


Rescue with out context, prior preparation, pressure or emotion of Theon and his males to his sister. In a seen and never seen, and with out obvious problem, assault the Silence, and is rescued by Yara, with only a few seconds.

In addition to the cavalcade of dragon, one other nice second that we’re ready on the books and have been burned already within the first chapter (though I like a variety of that’s within the fingers of a really huge Sam), is when, lastly, Jon is aware of that he’s Aegon... This and the flight, alongside that Dany is displayed so pushy with the others owe him obedience, and that Jon, (Aegon), anticipate that the invention of your true nature, is taken by her as a betrayal, make me assume that maybe that is the Dance of the Dragons 2.0 , we’re ready on the books.

Good ending with the Walkers adorning the partitions of Last Home, dotted with reliefs of comedy between Edd Penalties and Tormund. And that enigmatic image that now we have already seen… what with references to the Targaryen?

In common a chapter is preparatory, with an excellent tempo, and plenty of reunions however that would have been taken a lot, rather more in my view. There is No pressure on the methods, neither is it a chapter so for adults because it tends to be sequence, however extra “tender”, extra generalist with key characters in chopped as Tyrion and simply the few phrases are fairly innocent.

This first capítulor to me I preferred very a lot. I preferred it as a result of, even though that very same evening I completed the reviewed a minimum of, serves to place the entire world on the sport board. I’ve to confess that there’s just one factor that I have never preferred and that is the nonsense of jokes about balls, testicles... of Tyrion, actually?, Really?

The plot is in regards to the arrival of Daenerys, we anticipate, was not going to love it, however in my view it’s important to remember {that a} greater risk is coming and that’s the reason you want dragons if or if, as shall be mentioned afterward who takes the crown within the north or within the 7 kingdoms.

In relation to the conferences: I preferred it lots, Arya with Gendry (does anybody see one thing else?); with the Dog very a lot in step with that small trace of a smile; with Jon, madremiamadremia with Jon, very good and anticipated, however the assembly that has struck me is the Jaime and Bran, I do not know what to assume. I also needs to level out the parallels of this chapter with different scenes of the sequence, particularly the primary, appeared to me elegant.


I appreciated the touches of humor because the encounter “blue eyes” of Edd and Tormund, or the remark of Qyburn within the brothel. The matter of Cersei horrifies me, as a result of it is extremely loopy and it scares me what he has deliberate, I’m sorry to inform you that I’m going to go “tiptoe” on the subject of elephants, and Euron, no, look not.

Daenerys was flawed to punish the household of Sam, and goes to pay. The assembly of Sam and Jon, I do know it has been a bit criticized, but when I say that my girlfriend has burned to the household of my finest buddy, my father is just not my father, that my mom is my aunt, that I’m the respectable king… I’m simply as catatonic, ojiplática, shocked that Jon.

The substitute of the poor youngster…. Oops what time unhealthy!

And to complete I need to spotlight one of many scenes that made me clap like a idiot. In spite of that rescue, so, so, so… “atypical” of Asha, when she tells Theon that he must go to the North to battle alongside the Stark, I believed I used to be the most effective of the chapter.

Game of Thrones has returned after nearly 600 days, and though the title of the episode has completed being “Invernalia”, here is a suggestion that I believe is most applicable: “this to me appears like”.

We missed the sequence, let’s face it, and solely HBO may enhance ourselves when it comes to being conscious of it; that is why we been delighted to this begin of final season with a recap mass of scenes, strains of dialogue, musical themes and conditions that now we have already lived earlier than within the sequence (particularly within the pilot). Some of this stuff have been effectively acquired by the viewers, and others not a lot, however it’s nonetheless there the essence of Game of Thrones, and the message extra highly effective is that that is the start of the tip.

All the brand new components of the intro: the beginning of the dragons, the Wedding is Red, the Scorpion of Qyburn in entrance of the cranium of Balerion, the crypts of Invernalia… “Hmm, this appears like”.

The scene of a small youngster climbing (which isn’t Great) trying to get to the Kings (who’re neither Robert nor Cersei) with the theme of “The Kingsroad” background (which isn’t the identical, however the motive is there). All of this additionally rings a bell. What Arya rapt with the arrival? You might need heard of. What Tyrion making a joke of eunuchs? Unfortunately, it additionally appears like; and that the season has begun effectively, to be sincere, feels a bit like a stab within the gallbladder, however HBO knew that we have been anxious to Game of Thrones, and also you both had supposed at first that the perdonaríamos, or has given them equal.


Let us proceed: what The echoes of Ned within the phrases of Sansa when he says “Invernalia is your”? You might need heard of. We have as much as Bran saying “The King of the Night has to your dragon,” which additionally has that sound of the final episode a minimum of. The lords of the North-going domino impact to take concern with after which coinciding with Jon additionally, you will have sound; on the entire , evidently in addition they have been forgetting issues after two years with out showing on display.

What sounds to Me like me otherwise you had named King within the North? Oh, sure, sure, sure, it sounds to us.

What sounds to Me like me or had a zombie military of ice prepared to masacrarnos and due to this fact I had determined to search for allies to battle them? Oh, sure, sure, sure, it sounds to us.

Do Jon and Arya speaking about weapons? You might need heard of. Compare sizes already, not a lot, and have a look at what they already do sufficient sexual jokes; which jogs my memory, does being Bronn and the prostitute? do the breasts? Of course you sound. It appears not, however e‘s superb the quantity of individuals which were hooked to the sequence as a result of it was exhibiting a intercourse scene simply to alter the channel or to move by the room.


If somebody left to show inward with the prostitutes to say “That crossbow to me it sounds”, the truth is: it’s the one utilized by Tyrion. If you’re a kind of individuals, you’ve got received a chocopunto. If you have been additionally one of many individuals who seen that “Ed ” the good-looking”, the child I used to be speaking about one of many women, was the cameo of Ed Sheeran within the earlier season, you’ve got a chocopunto additional. I, actually, I do not I ended to consider it and I sounded.

Since then, in the event you seemed like one thing that Jon was a Targaryen, as a result of it appears to be that there’s to maintain reminding him explicitly, even though HBO has closed the final two seasons with the identical revelation, now you’re going to ring extra, as a result of the composer Ramin Djawadi has performed it once more and has blended up the difficulty of Jon and Daenerys, with the theme of the Targaryen whereas they have been flying.

And if at any time you miss some, “Well, that is sufficient of a recap and to make a wink, is not it? That there’s a plot to develop, as a poor angle, as a result of the subsequent factor he tells Daenerys in entrance of the waterfall of ice goes to sound extra to Ygritte that any spark, hearth or flare that comes out within the episode.


An picture that struck me wanting on the networks was that of the appointment of Robert Baratheon from the primary episode of the sequence: “I’ve a son, you’ve got a daughter, we’ll be part of our homes”. And what a coincidence, as a result of Arya and Gendry meet after a short greeting to Sandor Clegane (who reminds us that she’s good at utilizing an axe), to repeat his jokes from the second and third season: after all I appears like this “excuse me, my girl”, as a result of the HBO launches these items to the face identical to Twitter launches spoilers piece on a Monday morning (or night, as occurred with this episode).

And because it has gotten to the topic of throwing issues to the face, one factor that caught my consideration and I seemed like an excessive amount of was the rescue of Asha. Removing the truth that it was a mechanical and sudden, there’s one factor that because the (tried) rescue of Theon in Strong Terror share on a visible stage, and it’s that, in each, proper earlier than the Greyjoy rescuer, a guard he sticks a hatchet within the face.

In the primary case, Asha is the important thing to a soldier of the Bolton within the battlements; within the second, and Theon does the identical factor with a guard of the Euron of the sequence I insist on making the excellence within the boat. And effectively that Djawadi returns to us to recollect the theme of the Greyjoy as they head to the North. Asha reminds us by remind him to Theon as effectively, which is Greyjoy, and that’s Stark, as informed by Jon within the earlier episode, makes 600 days.


That’s a Stark half and his finest buddy chubby speak in regards to the Throne and the Targaryen within the crypts of Invernalia is the decision of “Hey, this appears like” that was lacking to place the icing on the episode. That the Others do artwork along with genocide relaxation in peace little Ned Umber provides one other contact of nostalgia to the viewers. And in the event you add to Jaime and Bran, who’re the characters that shut each this episode as the primary of the sequence, she is topped because the chapter that do not get to be a compilation, however nearly.

In conclusion, and already coming into a sure seriousness, this episode not solely has it been an excellent introduction, however an excellent reminder of just about the entire issues that we missed what’s an episode of Game of Thrones. A pat on the again for the HBO to remind us that it’s again, with all of the issues that we preferred and which not a lot.

As I stated in the beginning, Game of Thrones has returned, now we have been reminded in a thousand methods in 54 minutes, 50 for individuals who noticed it in HelioBO, and now comes the start of the tip. (S) Battle(s) by the approaching Dawn(n), and with the rain of nowadays that, to me, in my opinion, I’ve been recalled to Osuna, within the winter, and this imminent catharsis additionally. For my half, normally, I actually preferred this episode, eradicating some issues of the script, and might’t look ahead to the subsequent.
