After all of the speculation and waiting, the first episode of this eighth and final season of Game of Thrones has finally touched down.
Just as everyone wanted to find the reunions involving the Stark children, in addition to Tyrion and Sansa, and Arya and Gendry, and as much as we all wanted moments such as Little Lord Umber’s surprise reawakening, one moment has entered into the folklore of Westeros – weirdly – for being amusing.
Even more peculiar, the stars of the second were Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons.
Fundamentally, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen had gone on a beautiful romantic dragon ride and were having a little smooch when Jon opened his eyes.
Currently, Game of Thrones is not exactly known for being funny. To be fair, it is more grisly and horrifying than any other show on the telly – however, when they want to, they are able to have a laugh.
His shoulder was two gigantic dragons having the most quizzical but amusing look on their faces.
We know that dragons are supposed to be very smart, but surely they couldn’t understand, would they?
That is a great deal to take in, but he hadn’t discovered that just yet.
Could they possibly understand? Does it recognize among its own? We will not ever know.
That has not stopped folks speculating online about it. It is about as funny as the series ever gets, thus we have to appreciate these times before the relentless killing begins once again.
Incidentally, Jon Snow rode the dragon before this!
Again, the good people behind Game of Thrones are not big on fan appeasement – take it where you can discover it.
As for the rest of the incident, everything is building up well to a huge struggle between the living and dead, then another conflict between individuals is left. We can simply wait until next week to find out.
Let us know what you left from the whole thing – head over to Game of Thrones: Westeros Posting on Facebook and provide us the side of things.
The next episode will air at 2am on Monday 22 April, until it’s replicated at 9pm the same day.
