All Spoilers from Game of Thrones Season 8
Battle of Winterfell & Jamie gives Arya Widow’s Wail
In the initial episode of Game of Thrones Season 8, the Battle of Winterfell will take place, according to teases and leaks. This battle will feature Jon, Daenerys, Arya, Sansa, Brienne, and Tyrion, fighting the army of the dead. As told by the actor who plays the Night King, this will be the longest consecutive battle sequence in the show and will feature a huge amount of the lead characters of the show. It was also confirmed that the shooting of this episode took 3 exhausting months!
Another leak surfaced related to this. This leak has been sent around on the internet by Twitter users, although it’s credibility is yet to be verified. According to the leak, Arya and Jamie come together during a huge Winterfell battle. The two of them are training together in this particular scene, with Greyworm present there as well. Suddenly a wight comes out of nowhere, and Arya sees it, runs towards the wight and stabs the wight in the neck using Needle. However, as soon as Needle stabs the wight, it snaps. Jamie instantly runs to her rescue and beheads the wight with his sword, Widow’s Wail. Widow’s Wail is, of course, Valyrian Steel that can kill White Walkers.
This scene, if true, could have a huge impact on the show, and it’s possible that we see a rare and different kind of bond between Jaime and Arya. We do have it confirmed though, that Jaime will be possibly fighting in the Battle of Winterfell, as seen from the trailer. So this leak may very well be one of the most plausible ones for Game of Thrones Season 8.
Lead Actress Fainting on Set
As mentioned in the Entertainment Weekly article, there was a scene that required one of the lead actresses to stand still for a very long time, so this was not a fight sequence obviously. The lead actress in question suddenly collapsed while filming the scene. She had fainted.
There is a high probability that this could be Maisie Williams as she was the only one who hasn’t shot a battle sequence before, and it could be the scene after the battle or another scene that was just shot after the battle was shot. However, it could still be any other actress.
The Army of the Dead Attacks From the Winterfell Crypts
This was another leak that surfaced around the internet a week ago. Since the teaser shows a cold wind coming in the crypts of Winterfell, the Army of the Dead starts attacking from there. This would make a lot of sense because it gives the Army an upper hand in the Winterfell Battle as no one will see the attack coming.
This may further be confirmed when we see Arya running away from possibly fighting wights or white walkers in the trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8. She may just have been the first one to find the Dead in the Winterfell Crypts.
Jon and Dany Ride the Remaining Two Dragons
If this wasn’t clear already, the trailer now confirms it. Jon and Daenerys started bonding in Season 7, and we know that Jon is actually Aegon Targaryen. In season 7, we see Jon touch a Dragon, and in the new trailer that came out, we can see Jon and Dany approaching each Dragon, which further confirms that they will each ride a Dragon in the final battle. Daenerys is walking towards Drogon, and Jon is walking towards Rhaegal who was named after his father Rhaegar. Makes sense.
Jon Finding Out his True Lineage
According to a very recent leak yet again, we can expect that Jon may not actually find out about his lineage in a one on one conversation with Sam or Bran as expected. Actually, it will Bran who announces that Jon is a Targaryen to everyone in Winterfell, something along the words of ‘Jon Snow is not who you think he is. He is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne’.
But since this was announced in a Hall that has all the characters Jon would not be able to cope with it and according to the leak information on Reddit, the situation will be presented as actually quite humorous, one of the funniest scenes in GOT. This may be paired up with something the Producers said that was mentioned in the Entertainment Weekly article, that they filmed a humorous scene that was the funniest one in the whole show.
This leak may also be combined with the scene in the trailer where we see Jon pondering in front of a weirwood tree, possibly thinking about the information he just received. Along with this, there’s a scene in the trailer that shows Bran talking to Sam, maybe talking about telling Jon’s true identity to him.
Jaime Lannister Will Die
There have been pretty solid leaks saying that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime has signed a contract to be in only four of the final season’s episodes. Now, this might mean that Jaime dies in the initial episodes, or maybe right before the finale, but it is a possibility considering the fact that he may not be present in two of the Game of Thrones Season 8 episodes.
We hope that you had a chance to go over these leaks for Game of Thrones Season 8.
