1. Is what it smells not a little, the rebellion of the sisters Stark ?
As expected, after the first few trailers, the meeting between Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is not really well in the past. As if winter wasn’t enough, the Lady of Winterfell gave a frosty reception to Dany and her brother. And one wonders necessarily whether Sansa and even Arya (Maisie Williams) will not a little rebel in the future. Already because Sansa was well on the nerves throughout the episode (finally when we saw what), but also due to a little phrase to Arya during his reunion with Jon (Kit Harington ). Then they talked about the family Stark, Arya telling him to “not forget” that he was part of it.
2. Bran does it really sense of priorities ?
In this episode 1 of season 8 of Game of Thrones, Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) has once again proven that he was the character with the least subtle of the History of television characters. But we also wondered if he really had the sense of priorities. First thing he says to Daenerys : your dragon is in the hands of the King of the Night. Already : 1) It is not cool to say it like that and 2) there isn’t a other thing important to say. I don’t know, something about Jon, for example ? In short, Bran has also played with the chickens and asked/demanded to Sam (John Bradley) to tell the whole truth to his friend. Nice !
3. How Jon Snow will he announce the news to Daenerys ?
In the beginning of the episode, everything was going pretty well for Jon and Daenerys, they even made a small tour of the dragon, and it smelled of love, full nose. Naturally, Jon took a cold shower learning the truth : it is in fact called Aegon Targaryen, Daenerys is his aunt, and he is the true King. The news was hard to swallow and it almost seemed to be in denial. But the question is mainly : how will he announce the info to his sweetheart ? Knowing that Dany does not like too much (and that is an understatement) that we take him into head, does it necessarily have to oppose it and to betray ? Is-this-the beautiful story is going to end in a blood bath ?
4. We are the only ones to have chialé before the reunion Arya/Jon ?
That reunion in this episode ! It’s fuse from all sides : Sansa/Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Sam/Jon, Jon/Bran and even Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bran ! But the most moving of all was undoubtedly that of Arya and Jon Snow. We may have even shed a little tear, and we hope it is not the only/

5. The people of the North are they not a bit stupid ?
At the return of Jon to Winterfell, only one thing seems to preoccupy the leaders of the houses of the North : Jon Snow has sworn his allegiance to Daenerys and renounced his title of King of the North. But frankly, there is no more important things in life such as walkers white that will kill all of you ? Not as good, to have a kingdom, there must still be alive huh…
6. Cersei is she really pregnant ?
This episode seems to return a time after the last of the season 7 (cf the beard of Jaime late in the episode, or the injury healed completely of Theon). Ok, we don’t know how long, but necessarily, one wonders if Cersei (Lena Headey) would not (yet) lied about her pregnancy. Is she really pregnant ? If yes, what is she hooking up with Euron (Pilou Asbaek) ? Subsidiary Question : isn’t she the biggest b*tch of Westeros ? As good she still asked Bronn (Jerome Flynn) to kill Jaime and Tyrion with a crossbow if they survived the white walkers. Cersei, let’s not too look…

7. It was not a little easy the release of Yara ?
Euron being King’s Landing for the sole purpose of sleeping with Cersei (one point for him), he left his fleet WITHOUT ANY supervision ? We found it a little easy when Theon (Alfie Allen) has landed neither seen nor known, killed 4 or 5 guards and managed to escape with his sister Yara (Gemma Whelan). And besides, is this-that we are going to review Yara in the sequel ? It looked like when even a little to say farewell…
8. Tormund, he has super-powers ?
Remember, at the end of season 7, Tormund (Christopher Hivju) was rather bad luck since it was on the Wall when the King of the Night, attacked it and destroyed it with the help of Viserion. But finally, it seems that the wildling has super powers since it shows up all dapper to the end of the episode. It is not known how he managed to get out of it, just that it is bad luck because it is between the wall and the army of walkers white. Fortunately, he is not alone (even if one does not remember the names of the other…).
9. Is-this-that Arya and Gendry will end up together ?
Ok, this is not the most relevant of questions, but hey, our core shipper has made a little jump seeing Gendry (Joe Dempsie) and Arya together. We had forgotten that it was too cute ! Let’s put that aside and ask ourselves another question : what is it that Arya asked him to build it ? The drawing was not very clear, but we look for a sword in a glass dragon. Translation : Arya is always so badass and wants to go to battle against the White Walkers. Tremble !
