What to Expect from GoT S8E2
Before we talk about S8E2, we strongly recommend you to watch the first episode. You must also recall everything that happened in the first episode of the show.
In the second episode of GoT Season 8, Jaime Lannister comes face to face with people he has wronged. He meets Bran Stark, who he pushed off a tower in the first season, infamously saying “things I do for love” after that. He also comes face to face with Daenerys Targaryen, the daughter of Aerys Targaryen, who Jaime had killed to become the ‘Kingslayer’.
It will be interesting to see the character interactions here. Moreover, the white walkers and the army of the dead have begun to march and would reach Winterfell before sunrise on the next day. This would make for an interesting watch!
