17 Details In \'Game Of Thrones\' Season 8 Episode 5 You Might Have Missed

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.

    Yeah, You missed explaining why it was that there was green flames t/o the city as drogon burned it. 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?

    IT MAY SOUND CRAZYYYY!!!! Jon is the only one who carried legacy and honor of Ned stark .Fate took him to different places , people and situations but he always followed the principles of Stark. It is difficult ,he is well aware it may take his life ,people may hate him but he is the honorable and selfless man Westeros may never deserve.From outside it may look dumb but it takes courage and pain to stay honorable all the time !!!!

    Good review. Varys and his several messages I often wondered how many crows ever got to see. If the series was perhaps expanded longer perhaps they could have covered it. Three things come to mind, the Red Witch in Maureen that said they would help Daey, but it never happened & although the Stannis Red Witch did help against the Whites. The prophecy of Bran Flying never happened. The Shame Lady or the Doern Women in their cells shown their final doom (I guess to be assumed happened?).

    Dany will be declared as Mad queen because of the massacre of the innocent and Jon will be the King of Seven Kingdom. There might be a scene where Dany tries to execute jon with Drogon fire, But As he is Targaryen , he wont get fried and will come out in one piece which will show people that he is one true heir to the throne and at that moment dany will know that she is fucked without any lubricant . Thats my prediction... :-)

    All this effort went into this episode. Then you got all the ignorant fools who don't pay attention and gawk at it. I think this has been an excellent season. It's exactly what I had been hoping it would be. The ONLY conflict I could really find is that in the book it says Cersei will be killed by strangulation by one of her brothers. But I honestly enjoyed how they killed her. Her begging and pleading to not die the way she did made it much sweeter for me. If anyone should die in that fashion, it's her. Oh and my boss is gonna be devastated. He is obsessed with her character. He's been waiting to binge watch it and doesn't know who died or how they died yet.
