“Game of Thrones” fans worldwide have been setting themselves up for the epic third scene of season eight, which guaranteed to be the most crushing for the beloved cast yet. The almost hour and a half long episode was basically one long battle scene, and was the longest cinematic battle sequence in history.

The entire team completed an inconceivable employment of moving between storylines – separating the unavoidable monotony of such a broad fight. It was, many expected, the most death-filled episode since the notorious Red Wedding, and fans were forced to say goodbye to some of the most cherished characters in the show.

The episode opens on Sam Tarley, overpowered and in the way, similarly as we were first introduced to him in the first-ever episode of ‘GoT.’

The Red Woman plays an essential role in this episode, as she lights the swords of the Dothraki as they ready for battle. Just 10 minutes into the episode, the fight between the living and the dead begins. Immediately, it’s evident to all those involved that the odds are stacked way against them. They’re as prepared as they can be, but they’re way outnumbered, and a ravaging storm has complicated things substantially.

All through the ebbs and flows of the episode, there are snapshots of extreme viciousness and snapshots of unwinding where it shows up there might be trust all things considered.

Some characters are compelled to confront their most close feelings of dread – we see that multiple times with The Hound as he’s encompassed by fire. A few times all through the scene he spares Arya as she battles the undead, and brushes with death a number of times. The Hound’s brother also dies as he protects Arya – for good reason.

While the living and the dead fight on land, there is also a battle going on in the sky, as the two living dragons, ridden by Daenerys and Jon, attack the dragon who fights for the Night King. Both Daenerys, Jon and the Night King are thrown from their dragons and forced to fight the undead army on foot.

Daenerys endeavors to impact the Night King with flame, which demonstrates ineffective, obvious by the King’s smirk. In a stunning minute that numerous fans foreseen, the Night King at that point resuscitates the majority of the fallen fighters back as his very own undead devotees.

In the past scene, It was said many times that the women, children and crucial characters, including Sansa, Tyrion and Gilly, would stay in the crypts during the fight, as it was the “safest place in Winterfell.” When the Night King recreates his zombie army, he’s joined by the dead in the crypt, who explode out of their tombs.

Gilly is hauled away by one of the undead, and we can just expect it prompted her death. The equivalent can disastrously be said for Jamie Lannister and Breanne of Tarth, who at last achieved a crucial minute in their relationship in the past episode.

Also among those who die in the season’s third episode Jorah Marmount’s kin, Lyanna, who is crushed by a giant after she stabs him through the eye.

Jorah surrenders to the military of the undead also, as he shields the adoration for his life, Daenerys.

In the interim, the Night King and his cohorts walk on Theon and Bran. Fans will review that the choice was made for Bran to serve as an enticement for the Night King, and that Theon would shield him. Theon feels a serious feeling of blame for the way he’s treated Bran throughout his life, and winds up biting the dust in a suicide mission while assaulting the Night King as he approaches Bran.

A tense moment ensues as the Night King begins to approach Bran. Then, in a turn of events that certainly made viewers stand up and cheer, Arya flies through the air and is caught by her neck by the Night King. She then stabs him through the chest – causing the rest of the undead to finally perish.

As the characters survey the carnage of the battle, we pan to Daenerys, who is comforted by her dragon as she sobs over the dead body of her most loyal adviser, Jorah.

In an end that she anticipated herself, the Red Woman finishes up the episode by strolling over the bodies into the snow, as she gradually turns elderly, then collapses and dies.

Now that the group has defeated the undead, they’ve won the great war, but now must face the politics among the living. Next week, they’ll likely take on Cersei Lannister, which has the potential to be just as gruesome.
