'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Episode 3 recap: Say hello to the god of death

got season 8 episode 3 review

Daenerys and Jon join the fight with her dragons. . Also, while I'm still worried that Dany might break bad in the end and turn out to be the final boss, she was brave and loyal and fierce, and even displayed true sadness when Jorah fell, and revived my hope in her goodness this evening. Oh is she gonna flame them all? Melisandre referred to Stannis as Lord of Light on , so there's that. Arya Stark defeated the Night King. She says she's not one to beg, but now she's begging that he tells nobody of his true identity.

As the hour rolls over into a second in its 80 minute-plus running time, the dialogue completely ceases, and even the screams of anguish recede into an aural blur. Jaime is there, striking them down as they approach. Setting a battle in the darkest hours of the night something that and to be clear that remains an issue here reflects the brutal nature of combat within this universe; war rarely happens at a convenient time. Still pulling the rug out from under us. They will not fall back. It has earned that trust, by delivering so many times before. He's woken up and it's just in time too.

There was a spark between the former husband and wife and a sense of the inevitable sweeping along their faces showing that they were resigned to their fate even though they would fight to the death. Nailing a post—Night King ending for the show will mean clearly conveying what the contenders for the Iron Throne stand for beyond their own bloodlines. The cellos are crescendoing, and we're cutting between the major theaters of battle. Hitting a dragon several times on the first volley is. I cannot help but admire that this is one of the earliest maneuvers taught to Arya by Syrio Forel. The dead surround Bran as Theon prepares for battle.

Also now Jon and Dany can see better. Like I said, I need to watch this again. I said that the fan theory about the Night King heading to King's Landing instead of Winterfell , and I was right. Then again, this is Game of Thrones, and it's never been predictable. A lot of Grey and not much Joy. My top 9 — Podrick, Ghost, Edd, Tormund, Lyanna Mormont, Grey Worm, Theon, Beric and maybe Brienne.

Sorry for the gap in service there! She drops her dagger from one hand to the next and stabs him in the stomach; shattering him to a million ice pieces. Lots and lots of darkness. It was a long, dark night filled with terrors. Even with a fellow genre television series like revolving around this exact premise, television is, by the practicalities of its medium, often doomed to fall into a status quo of repetition that robs even the apocalypse of its rightful scope. This has terrified the Hound.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 Review: Not Today

The thing that really sets GoT apart from any other show is that, 99 percent of the time, when we know something is coming, GoT delivers and then some. Cersei when she finds out everyone survived battling the white walkers — Janie from the block? In traditional fantasy, the forces of good and evil having a climactic duel should be the end of all things, but never has the end seemed so glum. Tyrion can use his third best talent to place many babies in Sansa's belly, and the two can rule with wit and justice. In a repeat of Hardhome, the Night King raised all the dead from Winterfell's side to his army, and now Jon is surrounded. But she doesn't need to see things with her eyes to know what she's doing. In its final moments, the episode is at its best — and worst.

Or did he just peace out? Melisandre: What do we say to the God of Death? Dany was on the ground too long and wights are attacking Drogon. He grabs her and begins crushing her to death, but not before she stabs him in the eye, taking him down with her. I worry that to be excited about that prospect is to believe the show can recapture the magic of its earlier seasons—a magic that I think is gone for good. As Jon goes after The Night King, the latter arises the dead including Lyanna and Edd. This prompts Theon to dash forward to slay the Night King and in one quick swoop, the lord of the dead snaps his spear and stabs Theon in the gut. Strike that from the record. I remember when this show had fewer dragon battles, what a world that was.

This is also interesting: The dagger Bran gave to Arya makes so much sense right now. Brienne shouts to stand their ground as some try to flee. Anyway Daenerys saves Jon and Rhaegal. Tormund and the Hound are on the front lines too, as are Gendry and Sam. For the past , I have pleaded for the show to get the White Walkers out of the way so that viewers can return to the more important stuff—Westerosi politicking and grand romantic tension, the twin pillars that have held up Game of Thrones for nearly a decade.

Or Tyrion, or Jaime, or probably Sansa and Arya. He's going after the Night King to kill him and save the day and — oh wait, no he's not. Shout-out to composer Ramin Djawadi, who has never been adverse to unconventional choices, but really outdid himself here with the soaring, searching score that gave the episode its own unique flavor while also selling its most emotional beats. In a nearly wordless opening scene, we see our characters, be they soldiers or not, ready for the battle. Davos, who still hates her but also is a very practical man, lets her into the keep and she tells him that he need not execute her, she'll be dead before dawn.
