Where Episode 3 left us all shook, Episode 4 of Game of Thrones raised a huge question: WTF? Seriously, the Pre-Battle game is not strong at all.
Spoilers Ahead, you should stop reading if you have not seen the latest episode yet since it contained some important moments regarding our favorite characters.
Episode 4 starts off with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) crying over the dead bodies of Jorah Mormont (Lain Glen) and Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) respectively. We were thinking that was the end of heartbreaks for now however, we should have known better. Unlike Episode 2 where everyone was spending lovely moments with their loved ones, family and friends; Episode 4 shattered it all. Here is how Episode 4 of Game Of Thrones Season 8 was all about breaking hearts.
Arya Stark Refuses Gendry’s Proposal
During the feast for survivors in the North after the Battle of Winterfell; Daenerys promotes Gendry (Joe Dempsie) as Lord Gendry Baratheon of Storm’s End. Gendry was already looking for Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) who was Missing In Action at the feast. The announcement has him all geared up as he searched for Arya Stark. What happens next breaks Gendry’s heart and the hearts of many in favor of Gendrya.
Gendry shares the news with Arya and proposes her right there to be his wife and become The Lady of Storm’s End. However, Arya refuses the proposal:
You’ll be a wonderful Lord. and any lady would be lucky to have you. But I’m not a lady. I never have been. That’s not me.
Ouch! So, Arya has gone from A Girl Has No Name to A Girl Is No Lady.
Jaime Vs. Tormund: Brienne Makes Her Choice
Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) has been trying his level best to bed Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). However, we finally see her making the selection and it was not Tormund. Brienne picks Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to help her lose her virginity. Since her virginity was being discussed by Tyrion Lannister over the dinner; Tormund is left shaken and heartbroken with the discovery of Jaime being Brienne’s preference. So, he decides to wash his sorrows away by finding another girl for the night. Poor Wildling.
Jon Snow Puts Ghost Up For Adoption
Ghost left with the Dothraki but did not come back in Episode 3. He was assumed dead by the viewers however, Ghost is very much alive and lost one year only. However, it still was not enough for Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) to give Ghost the respect it deserved. Jon Snow asks Tormund Giantsbane to take Ghost with him to the wildlings. Ghost just stands right there looking at Jon Snow.
Jon Snow bids farewell to Tormund with a hug however no cuddles for Ghost.
Two Down! One More To Go
Rhaegal survives Battle of Winterfell however, Jon Snow decided not to ride him since he still had to recover from the injuries and fly to King’s Landing. Next thing we know, Rhaegal is hit by arrows and Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek) ends up killing him. Unfortunately, it is official now. Rhaegal is declared dead by the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). We are all counting on you Drogon. Stay Alive.
Missandei Leaves Grey Worm In Distress
Euron Greyjoy ambushes Queen Daenerys and her fleet, kills Rhaegal, kidnaps Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) for ransom; a customized ransom. Having Missandei in chains standing alongside Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) already puts Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) in distress. Next, Cersei has her beheaded by the Mountain. Great, just great.
Even this mildest episode of Season 8 had to show 2 important deaths. Both killed were closest to Daenerys and she seemed consumed with anger at the end. Maybe, we will see her madness come out?
