After almost two long years of waiting, Game of Thrones Season 8 has finally premiered on HBO. Our review of the premiere episode is here, but we have plenty more GoT goodness beyond that. For more theorizing, check out why the crossbow Qyburn gave Bronn matters, what weapon Arya asked Gendry to make for her, and 17 other Easter eggs, references, and callbacks to earlier episodes you might have missed. And for a deep dive into each episode of Season 8, check out GameSpot of Thrones with Westeros superfans Lucy, Ryan, Tamoor, and Dave each week as we count down the final six episodes of Game of Thrones.
The final season of Game of Thrones is upon us. With the Season 8 premiere, Jon Snow finally learned the truth of his parentage and rode the dragon named after his father, while Euron arrived in King's Landing with the Golden Company and Qyburn sent Bronn north to kill her brothers with the crossbow that slayed their father. Yup, it was a lot.
Throughout all those significant events, the writing was pretty on point. There were some real zingers, from Arya finally reuniting with Jon to Bran's cryptic prediction that might have gone over viewers' heads.
We broke down some of the episode's biggest moments already, from Jon riding a dragon to why that crossbow matters. Read our episode review for the premiere if you want to know what we thought. And read on for our favorite moments and lines from the Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere.
