Defcon 4 Korea Land of the Morning Calm. Description Product Details Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! Part of the journey, as Tony Stark would say, is the end, and our Game of Thrones season 8 recap has come to an end of its own, now that the big finale has debuted at last. While fans are divided over how HBO wrapped things up for all its interweaving characters over the course of the 70 minute episode, you can't deny that The Iron Throne had its moments for the likes of Jon, Tyrion, Arya, and more, as we go into it in more detail below.
That's right, we've summarised the entire plot of The Iron Throne, and every other episode in our Game of Thrones season 8 recap below, giving you a bitesize highlight of all the key moments in case you need to catch up or refresh your memory. Suffice to say, there'll be major spoilers for season 8 below, so don't scroll down if you want to go in blind. Meanwhile, the Game of Thrones prequel TV show hits the small screen sometime next year, so don't expect the end of Westeros just yet.
The Game of Thrones season 8 premiere begins in symmetry with the very first episode of the show itself, but instead of The Lannisters arriving at Winterfell, it's Daenerys and an army of Unsullied, alongside Jon Snow and her band of advisors plus two, increasingly hungry dragons. Cue a bittersweet reunion with the remaining Stark children, and a slightly more tense introduction between Sansa and Daenerys.
Indeed, as the Stark homestead becomes the last stand for every last bannerman in the North, most still consider Jon their King, despite the fact he bent the knee to Daenerys in season 7. Which brings us to Samwell Tarly, who - after learning that Daenerys killed his family when they refused to surrender - finally tells Jon the truth of his parentage, and begs him to accept his birthright as ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. Jon, as you can imagine for someone who just learned he's sleeping with his auntie, is lost for words. Further north, at Last Hearth, Tormund, Beric, and Eddison discover a gruesome graveyard of corpses left as a sign by the Night King, who's marching ever closer to Winterfell Meanwhile, in King's Landing, Cersei finally accepts Euron Greyjoy to her bed chambers after he brings her a new army in the form of The Golden Company.
Unaware that Cersei is already pregnant, the self-proclaimed king of the Iron Islands wants to give the Queen Mother a prince, but it's possible she might pass off Jamie's unborn child as his own. Around the same time, Qyburn also asks Bronn to assassinate both Jaime and Tyrion for the Queen, but it's unclear if he's willing to go ahead with it at this point.
Speaking of, the episode's closing scene sees Jaime arrive at Winterfell, only to be met with an icy stare by Bran Stark, who seems to finally remember the cause of his "fall" that kicked off this sorry chain of events all the way back in season 1. Fresh start, guys? Season 8's second episode, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, is all about the calm before the storm, as the Night King continues his march towards Winterfell, starting with the matter of Jaime's arrival at Stark HQ. While Daenerys considers all the things she could and should do with the man who killed her father, Sansa and Brienne of Tarth manage to persuade her to keep the kingslayer around Jon, meanwhile, is avoiding Dany like the plague, cursed with the knowledge that the pair are related following the bombshell reveal Sam unleashed in the last episode.
The Mother of Dragons instead uses her time to mend relations with both Tyrion and Sansa, though the question of whether the North will support this Queen isn't yet resolved following a testy conversation with the latter. Later that evening, Winterfell's war council settles on a plan of action for the battle ahead. The idea is to send the women and children into the safety of the Stark crypts, while Bran is to be used as bait to draw the Night King out from his army and into the Godswood — killing the three-eyed Raven is the undead monarch's first step in his plans to wipe out the memory of mankind.
Speaking of romance, Arya and Gendry also embark on a surprise fling after the latter finally crafts the dragonglass spear that Arya has been so desperately craving, while Tyrion, Brienne, Tormund, Davos, Jaime, and Podrick hang out by the warmth of the fire as they await their impending demise. There's song, there's wine, there's even a story about Tormund killing a giant and suckling on the teet of his wife for three months yes, really , and even a heartwarming scene as Jaime officially declares Brienne an official Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. I'm not crying; you're crying.
It's not all fun and games for Jon and Dany, though, who are about to have their first lover's tiff after Jon finally reveals that he is Aegon Targareyn — rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

Dany, as you might imagine, isn't all that happy about the news. Their argument is cut short, however, as episode 2 ends with the Night King's much anticipated arrival at Winterfell, alongside an army of White Walkers, setting the scene for next week's epic; a 90 minute-long showdown that promises to be the biggest battle in entertainment history. The Long Night is all about one thing, and one thing only; the Battle of Winterfell. The war between the Night King's army and those tasked with defending Stark HQ begins, like all good wars, on the open battlefield outside the castle gates, as Daenerys' Dothraki army lead by Ser Jorah charge towards the undead, their swords lit up by Melisandre's magic, who has conveniently returned from her mystery endeavours in Volantis at the last minute to aid in the fight.

Meanwhile, Jon and Dany mount up and take to the skies on Drogon and Rheagal, reigning hellfire down upon the undead to take pressure off the ground troops, but it's not enough. Winterfell's armies retreat back into the castle, overwhelmed by the sheer number of attackers RIP Eddison , but another helpful dose of magic from Melisandre to light up the surrounding trench buys them some brief time to recover.
It's not long, though, before the Night King turns up riding an undead Viserion, and orders his army to use each other as a bridge to safely cross the trench. Inside Winterfell's walls, Brienne, Jaime, Arya, and others try to keep the invaders at bay including Lyanna Mormont, who trades fatal blows with an undead giant , while Jon and Dany take on The Night King from above. The White Walker's leader eventually falls from his dragon, but Dany's efforts to burn him to a crisp prove to be useless, and he heads for Godswood, raising the dead including the Stark corpses below the crypts to keep Jon from pursuing.
Meanwhile, Arya finds herself trapped within the Winterfell library, pursued by the enemy, but she's soon rescued by The Hound and Beric, resulting in a noble sacrifice from the latter, as Melisandre reveals protecting the Stark girl was his predestined purpose this whole time. Just outside Godwood, Dany saves Jon from a horde of undead Unsullied, but falls off Rheagan in the process, only to herself be rescued by Jorah at the last minute which, sadly, doesn't end well for our loyal servant to the Dragon Queen.
Within the Godswood itself, Theon and the Ironborn's ring of protection around Bran begins to crumble, as the Night King himself arrives, eventually killing Theon to leave the three-eyed Raven defenceless. But, surprise! The episode ends with the sight of Melisandre walking out into the snow, removing her necklace to reveal her true self, and succumbing to a quiet demise.
Episode 4 begins in mourning for those who lost their lives at the Battle of Winterfell, as the victors burn the bodies of the dead outside the castle walls. But grief eventually turns to joy as, later that evening, a feast is held to celebrate the defeat of the White Walkers. Daenerys appoints Gendry as Lord Baratheon of Storm's End, Tormund tries and fails to woo "the big woman", while Sansa and Sandor Clegane have a quiet heart to heart, looking back on how far they've both come since their King's Landing days. Spurred on by his new status as a Lord, Gendry proposes to Arya, asking her to join him at Storm's End, but she's having none of it.
Jon and Dany also have an uncomfortable conversation in private, in which the Dragon Mother begs the former to keep his real identity a secret so she can successfully maintain her claim to the throne. But Jon is just too good natured to make that kind of promise, and eventually spills the beans to Arya and Sansa. In better news, Jaime and Brienne finally
