Check out a few scenes from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 that are sure to effect the story in some way
Jaime Lannister faces trial at Winterfell
The King slayer arrived at Winterfell in the first episode and is now facing the children of the people (The Mad King and Ned Stark). Jamie – who has a pretty tarnished image in the North is bought before Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Sansa Stark and many more Northern Lords and Lady.
What part he will play in the Battle of Winterfell is of grave importance. After all he is not who he was during the pilot episode.
Another interesting thing in this scene is how Brienne of Tarth vouches for him.
Arya and Gendry
We have been shipping them since the very beginning. After reuniting this season we have seen the two flirting to no end with each other.
The two spend some great moments talking about weapons and life before taking their relationship a notch –scratch that – notches higher.
Jon reveals his identity to Daenerys
In the last episode, Jon got to know that he is the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. This episode he breaks the big news to his lover/aunt. Though she initially hasn’t taken it well, we wonder how she will react to it once the war with the dead is over. After all, Jon has much more of a claim to the throne than her.
Lyanna and Jorah Mormont spend time together
These cousins never met as when the elder one was banished the young lass was a tot. Almost all GoT fans were waiting for this meeting to take place. And Lyanna is a badass babe who will not take sh*t from anyone.
Jamie Lannister knights Brienne of Tarth
No lady in Westeros has ever been knighted. Lady Brienne of Tarth, a warrior swore to protect the Stark sisters, has become the first to break this tradition. Jamie Lannister aka the knight who slayed the mad king anoints her with the title of ‘Ser’ moments before the battle is to unfold.
Some other highlights of the episode include
Arya Stark and The Hound bound
Jaime apologizes to Bran
Sansa Stark and Daenerys have a chat
While we are all waiting for the next episode, here’s the teaser to episode 3
