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:

    The scene with Podrick singing is my favourite scene in the whole of Game of Thrones.


    6:03 is that a vision bran saw

    “To say F you to all expectations” That one sentence was the entire reason season 8 was as bad as it was. D&D changed everything that was set up because people predicted it so they wanted to “subvert expectation”.

    Could have had such a beautiful scene of Jon ordering that the remains in the crypts be vacated and burned to ash and seeing the Stark lineage that has always been in Winterfell gone telling the story that they are to begin anew after this battle and given that the battle hasn't happened and up until that battle the season was overwrought with dread, it could have also made some audience members feel as if the Starks are going to be no more.


    I really wanted Dany to say to Jon put ur long claw inside of me

    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.

    Is it a fact that the song is a mirror of the Lord of the Rings song because, the melodies are pretty different...

    Not really sure why you keep making fun of Bran because of his personality. I'm sure once you've seen Every single memory ever existed you'd be indifferent to your feelings too, and very desensitised to what's happening to others.

    Bran didn't tell everyone there is no "after," he only told Jaime. That is also why Bran helped Jaime get spared by Dany's court. Bran knows Jaime will die fighting the army of the dead.

  • SirGeeeO

    Bran said multiple times that he can see what's happened and what is currently happening. Unless he's lying and has a secret agenda, he cannot see the future

    Ignoring the potential hint that Cersei and Jamie are Targaryans(Mad king potentially had sex with their mom) making Jamie a direct descendent of Egg(Aegon Targaryan) and Brianne an official descendent of Dunk(Sir Dunken the Tall)

    Jamie, Tormond, Davos, Melisandre, Jora, Theon, Grey Worm, Mesande, Berrik (sp?), Varys, One of the Dragons, not quite Jon (though he'll be mortally wounded), and sort of Brann (worgs into an unkindness of ravens as the Night King kills his body)... maybe Podric. 90% of the unnamed characters.

    I don't think Thormund was drinking milk from that horn? Plus, how are the dead Starks in de crypt gonna break out of their tombes if they would get resurrected? When they brought a wight to King's Landing it couldn't even break out of a wooden chest...?

    Why don't everybody just give back each other swords.... everybody's got everybody sword.. Jaime Lannister's has the Stark swords... Jon Snow has Jorah Mormont sword.... Jorah Mormont's has Sam Tarly family sword... Arya has the dagger that used to belong Tyrion

    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.

    @OP There are spells that keep the evil spirits of winterfell in the crypts. Also, every male tomb has a sword on it, ready to defend the crypts. Something big is going to happen down there.

    Am I the only one who remembers that Melisandre has forseen in the dire the "great victory in the snow by Winterfell" ? It clearly wasn't about Stannis against Boltons...

  • BaltarstarGalactica

    What's to stop the corpses from rising in the crypts? Isn't that what the iron swords placed atop them are for?

    i hope the books story does not end up like this. this atrocity bad writing.

  • Yajna007

    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.

    • Yajna007

      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.

  • Yajna007

    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.

  • ProstateWizard

    Dany saying “the dead are already here” in the trailer scares me omg. Like it would be too obvious to mean to wight army. Like we all know the dead have arrived and the characters already know that. Please don’t kill Gilly, Sam and Sansa 😭

  • MrVhatever

    I talk with my mouth WIIIIIDE OPEN.


    Notice that a Kingslayer knighted another Kingslayer That was symbolic to far society has fallen in Westeros since soo many have died leaving the worst of the worst Kingslayers to protect the people.
