While Avengers Endgame had created quite a buzz among the audience, the last series of the popular show Game of Thrones had got the GOT fans at the edge of their seat with never expected suspense. The Episode 5 of the Season 8 had come out and so is the Last War. We saw on the last episode Daenerys Targaryen claiming the last war and it was thrilling to watch. Dany had lost more than she could bear and top of that on the orders of Cersei Lannisters she was even brutally beheaded. And with so much happening all around she saw her second dragon Rhaegel who got murdered by the hands of Euron Greyjoy. Well, let’s just be honest that nobody did expect the Mad Queen to become an even bigger villain than Cersei.
The Episode brought huge torments as we saw big characters like Cersei, Jamie Lannister dying together. We were looking forward to them to escape but what came was a total shocking. Meanwhile, we saw Jon Snow, Arya Stark, and Tyrion Lannister looking at the wreckage caused by the Queen. The question that remains now is if Jon again plans to bend his knee or will the Stark plan to seek the throne by themselves.
5 Interesting Highlights from Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5:
Deaths of Jamie and Cersei
God only knows how much we longed to see Cersei Lannister’s death scene. But it’s only fair to say nobody thought that it would end like this. We have heard Jamie and Cersei saying about leaving the world as they came and it seems like their true words really came real for them.
The Rise of the Dragon and the Mad Queen
Despite seeing the glimmer of hope that laid in Tyrion’s eyes, but when you see the face of Dany you know vengeance is on its way. The most astonishing part would be seeing Mad Queen in all her glory while she used Dragon. But yet again the common folks become the victims of the Targaryen rage.
Emotional Goodbye between Tyrion and Jamie
This would probably the most heartbreaking scene where we all cried just as much Tyrion did. He was the only Lannister who never took him as a monster and their final hug and emotional farewell were just too much to take inside.
The Hound vs. The Mountain
The Hound vs. The Mountain is what everyone was rooting for. This is the fighting scene which was craved and waited by all the GOT fans. The scene where the Hound finally manages to convince Arya to escape is heart touching. After that, he takes exact revenge on his elder brother but unfortunately, with that, it cost him his own life. However, can we just say what a way to leave! It was spine chilling to watch the throwbacks of Oberyn death. The scene literally sent shivers to the spine.
Death of Vary
Vary overshadowed to Queen Daenerys the outcome of letting the inner mad queen out. But at last he dies at the hand of the Mad Queen for being a traitor and believing that Jon Snow was the rightful king.
