Game of Thrones: What happened the first two episodes?

30. 04. 2019

When in 2011 HBO released the first episodes of Game of Thrones, they had no idea how successful this show will be. About 8 years we have been watching the story of Starks, Lannisters, Targaryens and other characters from Westeros which are linked not only by their interest in the Iron throne but also the danger coming from the White Walkers. Let us remind you what happened in the first two chapters of GoT! 😊

#Encounters at Winterfell


The first two chapters are mainly about encounters of old (fr)enemies and important conversations. While queen Cersei doesn’t move from the Iron Throne, most of the characters are meeting at Winterfell. Sansa, Arya, Bran, Theon and Jon are together again like in the old good times of Ned Stark, however this time everything is different. Even though there are moving moments like the hug of Jon and Arya or Sansa and Theon, there is no time for being a big happy family. Sansa is the lady of Winterfell now which means a big responsibility and long negotiations. And fighting for the main word with Daenerys who came to Winterfell together with Jon and her army. Sansa is smart enough to not completely trust her.  

#Same old Cersei

Those who remember well what happened in the previous season may recall the conversation between Cersei and Tyrion. Cersei promised to help in the battle with White Walkers. There is no shock in that Cersei’s army was never sent to Winterfell nor that she made an alliance with Euron Greyjoy instead. However, one shocking event the GoT makers prepared for us. Despite Lena Headey, the actress of Cersei protested, the queen decides to satisfy Euron’s demands and shares her bed with him. Although he hasn’t brought the fighting elephants she really wished for. Seems like she is indeed pregnant, and her hormones are changing her pride…


#Face to face

Instead of great army comes to Winterfell only Jaime, once upon a time feared and still hated Kingslayer who has changed a lot during the years. He changes so much that Cersei hired ser Bronn to kill him together with Tyrion. For a moment it looks like that this assassination won’t be necessary because Daenerys is very angry with Tyrion for trusting Cersei and Jaime kind of killed her father, however in the end no Lannister blood is spilt (yet). Anyway, the stay at Winterfell is not very comfortable for Jaime because he meets there Bran, Ned Stark’s son which he almost killed “for love”. Even Arya meets the men she tried to kill – The Hound. And also, Gendry with whom she finally finds out what is real intimacy.


#Troubles in paradise

One of the most important events in the first two episodes is with no doubt that Jon finally finds out his true identity. He is not the bastard of honest man Ned Stark and unknown prostitute but son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegard Targaryen, the brother of Jon’s lover Daenerys. This information of course kind of complicated his relationship with Daenerys. One might think that they might be a little disturbed by the fact that Dany is actually Jon’s aunt but in reality, they are more worried about their alliance. Daenrys indeed doesn’t take this news well. It means that it is Jon who has birth right for the throne. Even though before she was telling Sansa how much she loved Jon, now she shows what is the most important for her. Looks like the fight over the throne will be rough!


#the best lines

Since the Game of Thrones ends in a few weeks, the show makers have decided to change a little the tone of the show so in stead of tears of sadness they gave us some caused by laughter. But it won’t last long because the Night King is coming!
