    We're holding Q&A livestreams after each episode of Season 8, at ~10:30pm ET Sundays:

  2. DuccMuncher says:

    It goes downhill after this episode

  3. keeganshigh says:

    Gendry must not have put it down too strong.?
    She hit it once and then quit it.

  4. Sheldon Cooper says:

    What kind of fuckery is this

    How are you so good at predicting these things

  5. N3.2 says:

    Go back to Coderztuts!

  6. oataku_gurl_ le_oat says:

    How old is Arya again?

  7. The Uncle says:

    Gendy is my spirit animal.
    Impressed, confused and aroused is my new mantra.

  8. Activision & EA, Twin Pairs of Destruction says:

    I can see Sansa being mad at Jaime since she is young and doesnt know the whole story behind him.
    But Dany? Your father was a madman and would’ve killed millions if Jaime did not stop him.
    That is like a son of a murderer getting pissed at someone killing their father/mother because they were about to kill someone else.

    s9 review when

  10. Snow Boi says:

    I think the scene when the Knights king did "you know what" after he stepped out of the fire was kind of bullshit. I don't want to be "that guy" but even though the zombies are undead you should still be able to incapacitate them by severing their spine, arms, legs, collar bone etc.

  11. Holy Doggo says:

    the hound has one of the best arcs i have ever seen, too bad most of everything else is terrible

  12. baronvonslapnuts says:

    We finally know what Pod did to the hookers. He sang for them.

  13. Bj Hardigan says:

    Build up suspenseful to the moment theon the good man was kabobed by the night king, after his short victory over the Wight army to be able to get the attention of the night king. R. I.P Theon Greyjoy Stark, you are forgiven.

  14. Bj Hardigan says:

    Winter expired… I blinked and missed it

  15. I am no one neither R you says:

    You forgot to mention that Arya has a milky white butt

  16. Andrew Netherton says:

    Anyone else notice that when Podrick sings "Never wanted to leave", the camera settled on characters that would die this season, with the final character being Dany?

  17. tom d says:

    Soo wanted the dead starks to fight, how’d that not happen?

  18. tom d says:

    Jamie’s not a great fighter anymore but somehow he survived the whites? His character was maybe the dumbest of all at the end.

  19. Run says:

    This actually ended up being the best episode on season 8

  20. Τριαντάφυλλος Τσιακίρης says:

    But Arya didn't kill 3 Walkers with a pencil.

  21. Vivian Foster says:

    I think Theon had the most character arc. He went from Theon 1.0 (horny, arrogant shit) to Reed (neutered, stupid shit) to Theon 2.0 (purposed, loyal and brave). I really liked his character in the end and I felt really proud of him how he tried to protect Bran. Unlike Jamie, he really changed for good. Losing penis vs. hand is definitely more impactful.

  22. Lemon says:

    So all of the unsallied will die now? lol

  23. John Doe says:

    "Our cultures and morals are completely fucked" – talk about yourself, buddy.

  24. 岩の下駅 says:

    4:10 damn… that became way too real there

  25. Mehul Sharma says:

    No mention of Jon's revelation to Daenerys ?
