What a weekend!
Between the emotional rollercoaster from Avengers: End Game and that epic fight scene from The Game of Thrones, my emotions are shot and I think I need like a week to recuperate.
Fair warning- there WILL BE spoilers so if you have not watched The Game of Thrones Episode 3, click off now!
Okay, if you are still reading, you’ve seen it.
So, now that I’ve watched The Game of Thrones Episode 3 I have so many questions and I thought I’d go over them here in case you have the same ones too!
Burning Questions About The Game of Thrones Episode From Last Night
Why was the episode so dark?
Last night I restarted my HBO Go app several times thinking my streaming bandwidth was low or something. The episode was so dark, I had a hard time seeing what happened especially in the first half.
Seems like everyone else had the same problem…
Apparently, the GOT creators wanted the episode to be as “realistic” and natural as possible. Being that this episode was at night with White Walker zombies, it was meant to be dark.
I get it but I also felt it was fuzzy (and I totally wore my glasses).
What happened to Jon’s dragon?
During the scene where the dragons are flying in the air and are fighting the zombie Dragon, Jon falls off the dragon and the dragon falls (hurt) and was never seen again.
What happened to Jon’s dragon?

I can’t imagine the dragon would have died and they wouldn’t have made that be a huge scene with Deanery’s crying or something.
Upon reviewing The Game of Thrones episode 4 highlight, it appears his dragon did survive and will be seen in the next episode.
What happened to Ghost?
Ghost makes an appearance once again and is seen front and center at the battle but the last time we see Ghost is when he charges into the fight with Daenerys’s Dothraki so did Ghost die?
Well, at first we’d say yes but if you look closely at the episode 4 teaser, it looks like Ghost is doing just fine standing behind Dany and Jon.
Who died during the war between the dead and the living?
Again, since things were so dark, it was hard to tell who died and who lived.
Here’s everyone we know are confirmed dead as of this episode:
- Beric Dondarrion
- Eddison Tollett (Dolorous Edd)
- Jorah Mormont
- Lyanna Mormont
- Theon Greyjoy
- The Night King
Is that the end of House Mormont?
With the deaths of Lyanna and Ser Jorah (aka Sir Friend Zone), it appears that is the end of House Mormont unless they randomly introduce some character before the end of the series.
What the heck was The Red Woman (Melisandre) all about?
Right before The Dothraki take off to fight the White Walkers, The Red Woman rides in on her horse (from the same direction the WW lie) and lights the Dothraki’s Swords on fire.
But like, where did she come from? Was her sole purpose to light thing on fire, convince Arya of a higher purpose and then die?
It seems that’s exactly what she was meant for or I guess you could say destined for.
What did the battle plan go to hell?
The last episode it seemed as if they had an epic battle plan so what went wrong?
Well, as soon as Dany saw The Dothraki dying off (as their flames slowly extinguished) she went to jump on her Dragon to help her people. That is when the entire plan started to unravel.
Why was Arya the one to kill The Night King?
I won’t lie, Arya killing The Night King was a total shocker and one I did not see coming.
However, according to post-scene talk, David Benioff said:
“For three years now, we’ve known that it was going to be Arya that delivered that final blow … We hope to avoid the expected. Jon Snow has always been the hero and the saviour but it just didn’t seem right to us for this moment. We knew it had to be Valyrian Steel to the exact spot where the Child of the Forest put the dragonglass blade to create the Night King, and he is uncreated by the Valyrian Steel. At the end, it’s a victory for the living but at great cost because some of our favourite characters fall along the way.”
So, they knew for a while they wanted it to be Ayra, but did we? How did we not know she was the one?
I mean, is Ayra the “promised prince” or should we say, princess now? We thought it was Jon Snow but apparently we were wrong.
Where does the show go from here?
I am super glad the batter of the dead is here and gone because we still have so much to wrap up before this beloved series ends.
I am thinking the next episode they may their way to King’s Landing to battle Cersei but who will be the one to kill her? I think it will be Jamie…
So, what burning questions do you have?
