Our fifth episode of the final season of The Citadel breaks down The Bells, Episode 5 of Season 8 of Game of Thrones. Be forewarned, we discuss numerous details of the show so if you’re not a GoT fan or if you haven’t seen the third episode of Season 8, steer clear for fear of spoilage.
Brandon, Mike, and Dan try to find bright spots in a season that’s been headed in the wrong direction. We check in on the downward trend on Rotten Tomatoes and hope the final episode can correct the fall before the end of the series. How should we interpret Dany’s actions? We see the prophecy of Varys’ demise come true as he is put to death by the Dragon Queen and then she attacks King’s Landing. Is she now, truly, the ‘Mad Queen’ or were these actions a necessary step to take Westeros and make it her own? Why didn’t she lay waste to the Red Keep first, sparing the city? Will Jon’s loyalty be put to the test with her actions? Jaime and Cersei are reunited and we get a brutal fight between the Hound and his brother the Mountain. Were these ends truly satisfying or rushed for the final run?
We discuss all of these things and what the significance of Arya and the white horse may be on our latest episode of the Citadel. Tune in and let us know what you think!
