Game of Thrones 8x02, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," gets a full scene-by-scene breakdown by Erik Voss, who analyzes the hidden meaning of the music, dialogue, and visual details! How much does Bran know about the future? Where is the Night King, and is he setting a trap for Jon and Bran with a giant misdirect? Will Dany try to kill Jon now that she sees him as a threat to her claim to the Iron Throne? Who is the Jenny of Oldstones character from George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, why is Podrick's song about her significant, and how is it a secret homage to The Lord of the Rings? Why are the crypts of Winterfell actually the least safe part of the castle? And what is the hidden meaning of the title "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms"?
Come see Erik in his live comedy show, DARKEST TIMELINE, Friday May 3 at 8pm (and every first Friday) at the ACME Comedy Theater in North Hollywood! Tickets here:

  • Bran is a representation of the author George R. R. Martin in his own story. He knows the entire history past, present and future, but for unknown reasons refuses to share his knowledge and/or use it to anyone's advantage.

  • Grey Worm and Missandei are doomed even if they survive the battle. Naath is home to a particular species of butterfly that poisons and kills anybody that isn't a native after a few hours. That is why Naath hasnt been conquered. The slavers figured them out and only raid at night, when the butterflies are asleep.

  • Also, if the Night King wants Bran and always knows where Bran is then.... A) Why did he go to Last Hearth? It's not really on the way. There is a considerable detour involved. B) Why don't they send Bran to Kings Landing? Then the army of the dead would march further south too. Hopefully taking out Cersei's army on the way.

  • 27:16 Dany's claim would be lesser than that of Jon even in the case of gender-neutral rules too. Infact, Jon's claim is better than that of Daenerys' elder brother Viserys {the Beggar King} as well. Jon is the child of _Crown Prince_ (Rhaegar Targ) while Dany & Viserys are only siblings of that Crown Prince [albeit Viserys and Dany are off springs of the then incumbent King who is also the father of that _Crown Prince_ Rhaegar]. The King's grandchild will have higher claim to the throne than the King's own children,, provided that this grandchild happens to be born of the Crown Prince and not any simple\normal Prince or Princess. Viserys is a normal Prince; Dany is a normal Princess. But,,, Rhaegar was the very Crown_prince of the realm. I hope you can understand what it is exactly that I am trying to convey.

    Yajna007Yajna0072 mesi fa
    • Viserys' claim is lesser than that of Jon. Dany's claim is lesser than that of Viserys himself. Thus, Dany's claim is much lower than Jon's claim.

  • 25:50 So I am not the _only person_ to have noticed, that, the starting of Podrick Payne's song sounded a lot like Peregrin Took's song which he sang to the Steward of Gondor i.e. Denethor during Faramir's futile charge towards Osgiliath.
