  • Published: 13 May 2019
  • 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.

    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

                    If they wanted to reference our Lord of the rings, they should of had Sir Peter Jackson rewrite series 8! Then it wouldn't be the dumpster fire the plot lines, characters, and even battles became.😠

                                Am I the only one to see a resemblance between Arya riding the white Horse in the last scene and the NK riding the horse.?? She will come up as the new Night King.

                                melisandre unkowingly sacrificed shireen baratheon to save arya stark in s8e5, "only death can pay for life" theres alot of evidence to support this from s3e5 onwards

                                    How about that varys tried to poison Dany but seen as she was t eating it couldn't happen, I think alot of people missed that and his payment to the girl was the jewls on his rings

                                      You missed the hint that Varys talking to that little girl was probably trying to poison Danny but she wouldn’t eat.

                                        "You are my queen, I've found the queen!" - I've heard this before!

                                        So, D&D were foreshadowing that Jon actually VRChat knuckle? Does it make sense?

                                            Why did it show Bran learning this for so long?
                                            literally the end of S7 was Bran finding out Jon was the heir, but it meant nothing in S8 and Bran was like 'yea i want the throne'

                                                            Was this cersies plan, was it just stored up dragons fire? Was it a military tactic in case the red keeps walls were breached , to "burn them all" . Did dany really save Jon & greyworm from being burned up by the dragons fire if so?

                                                                            • JD21

                                                                              I think it's simple people that are enjoying this season, there are a tonne of issues with decisions and things that have happened (jon is aegon, teased for 7 seasons, and meant nothing) that people pull apart

                                                                          • MJFM
