These 3 striking similarities between 'Game of Thrones' Season 1 and Season 8 will blow your mind
The Dragon is about to enter the land of the Wolves and another mad ruler is once again taking over the Iron Throne in King's Landing
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' is all set to wrap up as Season 8 is just around the corner. With the Night King now riding an ice breathing dragon and the whole of Westeros travelling North to stop him, the finale season is everything fans have been waiting for. The Dragon is about to enter the land of the Wolves and another mad ruler is once again taking over the Iron Throne in King's Landing.
Things are literally all over the place but there is one hope that we might know something about the final season. The trailer which launched earlier this month revealed to us quite a bit, and it seems things are coming a complete circle.
As the trailer suggests, we can say there will quite a number of similarities between Season 1 and Season 8, and while there can be thousands of them, here are the top three we can tell you about, now. However, watch the trailer here before we get into the theories:
1. A Foreigner, Yet Again
A few seconds into the trailer, we see Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her Dragons entering Winterfell alongside Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), who right now is known as the King in the North. One the other hand, it is important to remember that Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) was taken as the Lady of Winterfell after her mother.
The trailer clearer shows Sansa unhappy with Daenerys' arrival almost echoing her mother's discomfort upon King Robert's arrival in Season 1. While Jon has considered Daenerys a loved one, reflective of Ned Stark's (Sean Bean) adoration for King Robert (Mark Addy) since the two were best friends, chances are the arrival of a foreigner might once again disturb things in the House of Stark.
2. Off With His Head!
We know what happened the last time a Stark left Winterfell, one betrayal led to another and finally, King Robert ordered for the execution of his Hand, which was then Ned Stark. As of now, we know Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) who has left his House to support Daenerys is serving as her Hand but things might get bad between them as Daenerys already doubts his allegiance.
Like Ned, Tyrion too might be falsely accused of conspiring against Daenerys and considering how much she loves to fry people with her dragons, Daenerys might just put an end to Tyrion's life. On the other hand, since Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) has taken a liking for the Lannister, he, too, might face the same fate as Tyrion.
3. Bran Climbs the Wall
Season 1 was the last time Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wight) physically climbed up a Wall but it seems, Season 8 will see the Stark boy once again involved in climbing high. In the trailer there's a shot where we see a small boy climbing up the wall as Jon and Daenerys enter Winterfell with their army.
The scene is almost a replica of what we saw in Season 1 when Bran climbed the wall and looked down at Robert and his battalion. Chances are Bran has put himself into this little boy's body, and as his eagerness to know everything remains consistent, he perhaps wanted to see the new ruler and her army just as much as he wanted to see Robert, when he was a kid. Moreover, with Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster Waldau) coming in, is it time for Bran to reveal the man's name who made him a cripple?
'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiers on HBO April 14, and this time Winter is here!
