Game of Thrones - WHO WILL BETRAY JON? - Season 8 Episode 1 Preview Q&A (Season 7 Recap Too!)

  • Published on Apr 2, 2019
    === ===
    Game of Thrones Season 8 starts SO SOON! The Season 8 trailer featured a lot of characters with mysterious motivations. Filup Molina and Erik Voss explain in-depth all the possible theories about who might BETRAY JON SNOW. The Season 8 trailer, plus the recent Season 8 footage and clips, gives us a lot of indications about where things are headed with Daenerys, Arya, Sansa, and Tyrion, but could they be hiding the biggest secret of Season 8? Maybe! Our hosts also go into a bunch of other questions about Cersei vs. the Nightking, some definitive statements on who won Game of Thrones season 7, and WHO THE HELL ARE THE GOLDEN COMPANY ARE and why they are going to be the biggest game changers since the Night King making Viserion an Ice Dragon (RIP) and taking down the wall! As always, they will also break down the POWER RANKINGS, Introduce some new segments, and get very nerdily hyped will all their predictions for Season 8 based on the trailers, footage, and theories they've got. OH AND-- they will recap Season 7 for you, because that's the kind of kind boys they are.

    Euron killed mercenaries of the golden company because they had cheated the dice. Who really hired the golden company ? Cersei or Euron for himself ? The golden company does not operate on loyalty but on who pays them the most.

    Although re: Jon bending the knee/being a Targaryen. As Dany pointed out the last king of the north (besides Robb) Torin Stark did bend the knee to the Dragons of House Targaryen. So there is a precedent. So may there be some conflict? Sure will it consume the plot and cause big issues? I’m not so sure.

    3:45 This is said A LOT, but Jon is NOT the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. The No.1 reason for legitimacy of Kings in that period that GoT mirrors, is "by right of conquest." While the Lannisters are usurpers, the Baratheons are not. They won it fair and square and the Targs lost it. e.g. 1. When Richard III lost at Bosworth Field to Henry Tudor, the House of York lost their claim and it became the Tudor's (and Henry's son would eventually become Henry VIII). e.g. 2 When William the Conqueror defeated Harold, his son became the rightful heir not Harold's. Even when William's line became completely extinguished, they did not go back to find Harold's descendants - the claim was _permanently lost._

    With Robert having no legitimate son, Ned was absolutely correct when he said that Stannis was the rightful heir. As he is dead, his daughter is dead and Renly is dead, the rightful heir is Robert's cousin however many times removed.

  • Kyle Simmer

    My theory:
    Sansa betrays Jon and gets him killed, not trying to get him killed. Arya avenges Jon and kills Sansa. Tyrion retains the throne.

  • Sydni Taylor

    I think Jon is too good and honorable to sit the throne he would be too much like Ned, honorable to a fault and he'd end up getting betrayed and stabbed in the back.

    • Sydni Taylor
      Sydni Taylor 2 months ago

      @pritesh attal yeah it did lol, but I feel like Jon is still too honorable to a fault, he couldn't even bring himself to lie to cersei at the dragon pit when he should've. Sometimes survival is more important than honor and he knows Neds honor is what got him killed and yet he doesn't seem to view what Ned did as a mistake, not only did Ned get himself killed but look at everything that has happened since. Robb and Cat murdered at a wedding and the sh!t the rest of the Stark kids went through and all the thousands that died in war because of Ned just having to reveal the truth of Cersei's kids, when you look at it this way what Ned did was not very honorable at all.

    I honestly feel that Tyrion has been planning on double crossing Danaerys for a whole now and his look towards the bedroom at the end of season 7 was more to do with the fact that he now has betray Jon snow Also who he actually likes and respects. Remember the look he gives the corpse's of Lannister soldiers that had been burnt by the dragons? He's all Lannister and he revealed his plan to Cersei.

    Jon least care about iron throne. I think he is like a nameless knight, who fights till the end but succumbs to his own wounds. He if asked to fight for it, would simply pass on it. I am also thinking the ending of the final season wouldn't be a happy one ... again.

      The Golden Company was started by Bittersteel . He was a Targaryan bastard . He formed it to try to help his bastard 1/2 brother Blackfire take the iron throne from their true born 1/2 sister . They have sided with the Blackfires against the Targaryans in every Blackfire rebellion for genarations ! That is why they laught at Danny's brother when he tried to hire them , it is also why in the books they are helping young Griff ( Agon ) because he is really a Blackfire not a Targaryan . ( not that he knows it because he has been lied to all his life ) !

    In earlier seasons, it was stated the the mad king already had wildfire caches under the city in many locations, even the red keep. This was separate from what they made for the battle of the blackwater. So I’m guessing those old stores will come into play this season.

    I think Jon will be the mad Targaryen and do something crazy! Anyone would be mad in his situation...He died betrayed by his brothers, came back to find out that his father is his uncle, he fucked his aunt, his grandfather killed his other uncle and grandfather, an Ice king reviving dead bodies is coming to destroy the only home he had after he just won it back from another psycho.... If he's not mad, his yoga class must be 5 stars.

  • bustermk2

    I am not sure Tyrian is jealous of Jon and Dany. I think he is more concerned that he is losing influence. Danny already turned to Jon for advice before the field of fire attack. As a result, he witnessed a massacre of the Lannister army ... which he clearly wasn't happy about. I think Tyrion will betray both Jon and Danny by the end.
