GOT S8 Ep1: "Winterfell"
Here is my quick review of the first episode of Season 8 the final season for "Game of Thrones" so if you dislike spoilers, avoid reading. The show is produced by HBO and this episode was directed by David Nutter. The opening credits are spiffing and new. The arrival of Daenerys and her army arrived at Winterfell along with a host of other characters including Jon Snow, Jorah and Tyrion. It was very reminiscent of the beginning of Season 1 epsiode 1 when King Robert arrived at Winterfell, and even the music was the same. There were a lot of reunions and also tense ones throughout the episode. Fan favourite predictions have actually happened regards to Jon. It was a distressing moment for poor Sam when he heard tragic news. One can't help but feel sorry for him. The Golden Company are at Kings Landing but something disappoints Cersei. Need I say more about the Greyjoys? A gruesome and horrible message was left by the Night King using that spiral sygil again. As always, it finished with a very interesting cliff hanger.
Overall feeling of this episode: OMG! What are they going to do now?
I shall review the next episode next week.
