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

Howto & Style

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.

    They definitelly planned Daenerys going mad and burning down King's Landing from the get go, but I also think they were planning to have Jon end up on the throne but scraped it cause they thought it was too easy to predict.

    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

    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?

    The whole time when drogon burning the kings landing, we never seen dany’s face or presence. Maybe she’s trying to stop drogon. Drogon got mad when he heard the ring of the bell. Hahahhaahhaha
