Catch up to Game of Thrones because winter is coming
Get set for another exciting and exhilarating season of Game of Thrones.
We bet college has been keeping you pretty busy and you’ve probably not got the time to watch the previous seven seasons all over again. But, do not worry because we’ve got you covered. We also have a list of all the episodes you MUST rewatch, if time permits, before season eight as revealed by Bryan Cogman who is the co-executive producer and writer of some of the episodes along with David Benioff and Dan Weiss.
So, this is what has happened so far. The Starks used to be a pretty powerful house but were torn apart by the Lannisters who also are a pretty strong house, if not the strongest. There were five Stark kids and one bastard child of father Stark. The eldest son was betrayed and killed at the ‘Red Wedding’ (like, seriously blood red), the eldest girl went through a ton of crazy stuff but survived and is pretty hardcore now, the youngest girl became an assassin, the second oldest brother got a third eye (yeah... about that) and the youngest brother died because he couldn’t zig-zag while running. The bastard, Jon Snow (who knows nothing), is the ‘Lone Wolf’ who has dragon blood running through his veins, is leading the battle against the dead and is also now in a relationship with his aunt, Daenerys Targaryen. So much for one guy, right?
The Lannisters include a pair of twins who by the way are in love and an imp. The other house is the Targaryen house with the dragons. Daenerys Targaryen had three beautiful dragons a.k.a., her children but one was killed during battle by the Night King and now he’s with the enemy. The Night King is our villain who basically has no dialogue but will give you the chills every time he’s on screen. There are a few other houses but we don’t need to worry about them now.
All the house leads, except Cersei Lannister of course, have decided to come together to fight off the Night King and save the living on the right side of the wall but that’s become a bit of a challenge as the Night King has way too many dead fighting for him and they’ve made it past the wall. Did we mention he has a dragon now? Yikes. This season is going to be about the dead versus the living and we can only hope that our favorite characters survive. But, you can never know with George R. R. Martin. It will also be interesting to know how the story of each individual character unfolds and who will be the last few standing.
