  • In “The Bells” — episode 5 in the final season of "Game of Thrones" — we are treated to another monumental battle. We break down the hidden meanings and references in this fifth installment of season 8, including 17 details that GOT fans may have missed. Beware: Spoilers ahead.

    It was impossible for major characters to escape death this time around, and we saw some of our favorite characters — Jon Snow, Daenarys, Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion and Varys — confronted with new challenges that push them to the brink. There are major callbacks to previous seasons, showdowns we've been waiting for (Clegane Bowl), and hints for the season finale.

    They definitelly planned Daenerys going mad and burning down King's Landing from the get go, but I also think they were planning to have Jon end up on the throne but scraped it cause they thought it was too easy to predict.

        People : Do you want to rule winterfell, Lord Bran?
        Nope. Three eyed Raven, remember?
        Later : Do you want to rule the six kingdom?
        Bran : Hold my wheelchair.

          Jon Snow's Script for Season 8:

          *"Fall Back"*
          *"I don't want the throne"*
          *"You're my Queen"*

                      The white horse is a reference to the Faceless Men's banner of black and white, and her turning from revenge and death toward the future and light. You guys read way too much LotR into this.

                                        They didn't mention that there was a shot of the girl holding the white horse lying on the ground burned to a crisp.

                                            I love these videos!! It really helped to tie things together for me AND be a lot more satisfied with the ending, which I had mixed feelings about. I understand it much better now and see that there was actually a lot of thought put into it.

                                                This is the least insightful GoT video I've ever seen. Also, showing the shadow of a dragon on Kings Landing isn't foreshadowing, unless you were trying for a stupid joke. Remind me not to watch your videos.

                                                        We also hear Light of the Seven variations played throughout the carnage, which was composed for, as you say, destroying the sept, which a lot of fans watched and went 'okay so Cersei is the mad queen that's right' and now it's playing while we see the true mad queen which is a cool lil detail
