    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.

    Cold hands was created by dragonflies after the white walkers for there, so I am disappointed they did not order suicide by dragon glass for the dying.

    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.

    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...?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
      Yajna007 3 meses atrás

      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.

    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.
