'Game of Thrones': S08E01 Recap

April 15, 2019 - 10:22 / Sarah Schulz

Last night, the Game of Thrones season 8, episode 1 titled "The Pointy End" aired and fans all over the world were celebrating the return of their favourite show after nearly two years. It has been twenty months since the finale of season 7 aired and so last night's episode was highly anticipated by all. We won't give away too many spoilers, but let's just say that we weren't disappointed. 

Game of Thrones has become an entertainment phenomenon and a series that is so well-known all over the world since it's first release in 2011. Starring Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner and more, the series has become a fan-favourite among many celebrities as well. The end of season 7 left us with many questions and we aren't too sure we will get all the answers in only 6 episodes of the final season.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere

The season premiere for season 8 was a great one. We didn't see any battles as most of this first episode focused on reunions. Some of them were joyful reunions, while other ones were just plain awkward. It had been a while for us with the almost two year break between seasons, however it was as if no time had passed for our favourite characters on the show.

Season 8 Fixes Season 7 Mistakes

Last night's episode was also able to do it's best at fixing some of the silly mistakes that were made in season 7. For instance, we get some answers between "Tyrion" (Peter Dinklage) and "Sansa" (Sophie Turner) in regards to "Tyrion's" plan to catch a wight and bring it to show "Cersei" (Lena Headey) to convince her to join the "Starks" and "Darnerys". We also see how "Yara Greyjoy" (Gemma Whelan) gets out of her capture from season 7...
