Dany, Jon, Sansa, Tyrion, Jorah, Brienne, and Pod together in Winterfell in latest Game of Thrones Season 8 promo photos!

Sansa Stark Winterfell Season 8

Yesterday we got a few more season eight promotional photographs, but really it’s been almost two months since the first media blast gave us a taste of the final season, so it was high time we got something new. And British TV channel Sky Atlantic provided!

On Instagram, Sky Atlantic shared a ton of new photos, as well as a few we have reported on before. Here are the new ones, focused on Winterfell in episode one and/or two:

There’s also a new photo of this Cersei scene we’ve seen so many times already, not only in the trailer but in previous promotianal photos as well:

I’ll leave you all to speculate about the many concerned looks in these early season photos. For one, I’m just happy one of them features Emilia Clarke’s beautiful smile as Daenerys, who we rarely get to see this happy. I don’t think it’ll last, but one can hope.

    1. It’s kind of hard to tell, but that first picture of Sansa looks a bit like a Sophie happier face doesn’t it?

      Great pics of course. (could have used another ASNAWP though) 🙂

      Daenerys sitting in one of the ‘big chairs’ ought to bring some comments. She’s definitely not showing any signs of pregnancy there.. Very trim! :0

    2. I never noticed the direwolf heads on the fireplace behind Dany. Very cool! It also looks like she’s on the receiving end of a verbal thrashing from Lyanna Mormont.

    3. Bran still looks pretty robotic in every shot we’ve seen of him. Would he really be so emotionless just from becoming an all-knowing tree man?

    5. Clob,

      Hahaha, not a fan of the she-bear? The other likely candidate telling her off would be Lord Glover.

      Also, I wonder if Sansa is passing out food to the soldiers since she appears to be outside…but I also feel those utensils are too long. I know nothing about medieval eating utensils though so it can very well be a spoon. My other thought was Arya teaching her how to make poison 😅Not likely, but a nice thought. Maybe we’ll get a nice but awkward family dinner scene in the Great Hall.

    6. great promo pics. I think happy Dany is with Jon. And do we know for sure that it’s Lyanna that Dany is looking at when she looks angry? What if it’s Sam who learned that Dany killed his family.

      And she doesn’t look happy when she is with Jorah. She looks concerned. Truth bomb about Jon being the rightful king right there?

      I convinced myself that the northern lords want to force Dany to step down and bow to Jon as the right full king. And I think there’s a huge chance that Sansa will make a coment that it’s the smartest move. And I think Arya will follow that but add some comment that will ease Dany’s emotional rollercoaster. She will make sure Dany will go with it.

      Tyrion looks concerned, but why?

      Not even close to knowing that, and I’d put her pretty far down on my list of likely candidates. Tops for me might be Jaime telling her about Cersei’s “change of plans.”

    8. Luka Nieto,

      Oh nooooo!! I sort of liked having his grumpiness in Winterfell. When Davos was speaking about the Northern lords to Dany in S7 and said “all those hard sons of bitches,” Lord Glover was the man I pictured lol. I wonder if they’ll explain his absence or pull another Dickon Tarly 😂

    9. What about Dany finding out her dragon is now in the hands of the night king? That could be the concerned or angry face?

      That is all crazy talk. For her to be showing, the trip from Dragonstone would have to be 4-5 months long. Even if they went back to normal-speed traveling, it still wouldn’t take them that long to get to Winterfell.

    11. Ooooooo!!! Thank-you, Luka! It seems every time I check this site, there’s a ton of new news!

      Yeah, what is Sansa holding? I, too, know nothing of medieval utensils. When I was scrolling down the pics, I thought it looked like the handle of a pipe ala Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Sansa had taken up smoking to relieve her stress 😉 But then I saw the bowl and I can’t figure out what the bowl is for in that case. It does look like a food bowl – and with long graceful utensils 🙂

      Great photos!!! I look forward to analysing the hell out of them!

    12. JenStar Runner,

      Yeah I know… some people are always looking for the signs though and that photo is pretty conclusive in that she’s not showing. We don’t know exactly when in the season the scene is but probably no later than the second episode.

      Yeah. I have a comment. I had an immediate reaction that it’s not right that she’s sitting in charge in the grand hall in the North. She’s not from the north and no Northerner will bend the knee to a southern queen.

      Wow. I’m not sure why i reacted so strongly. I like Dany. It just felt so wrong seeing her sitting at the table looking like she was in charge. I think it was her expression like she was ruling that got to me.

    15. Tron79,

      That was the type of reaction and comment I was expecting… (nothing about the not showing part – that was just my observation seeing how slim she is). 🙂

      Her place at the table doesn’t bother me, although I wouldn’t be surprised if it does to some of the North at first. She’s in an alliance with them regardless if they’re happy about it or not. That should put her on equal footing at the least within that alliance, which is as A ‘top dog,’ and deserving of a seat on the dais and main table.

      I’m not convinced at all that the timeline will be long enough for us to see her big and pregnant, unless there is a big time jump at some point. Their jet packs were saving them a couple of weeks of travel here and there at most last season, not nearly a year.

      I’m also not convinced that she will get pregnant, though I don’t rule it out. I just don’t hold all this certainty that others do. I know they spent a lot of time last season reminding us that she doesn’t think she can get pregnant. And it’s true they could be setting up a twist (though a rather obvious one). Or it could be a set up to further complicate the issue around who is really the rightful ruler once Jon’s parents are revealed. Tyrion already reminded us that a ruler without heirs is generally seen as problematic. And who even knows if Jon can father a child. Is he even really alive?? His wounds didn’t really heal, which makes it seem like his cells aren’t regenerating. Swimmers need to be refreshed, so I dunno how that works.

      Anyway… all this is to say that I’m not convinced of anything.

      Yeah. I just took a breath. I was surprised i reacted so strongly. My logical brain knows they need the alliance to defeat the dead. I think it was just seeing her by herself with her “i’m the queen” expression that got to me. If Sansa and Jon are also sitting at the table when they pan over I probably wouldn’t have reacted so strongly.

      I think since i have read that Sansa and Arya will have a similar reaction to mine, i May have been taking their side some with my gut reaction

      Maybe… and I agree her expression does look concerned, but it looks more sad-concerned, worried-concerned, rather than angry, fearful, or WTF!!11-concern. I expect Dany’s face would be a bit more WTF?!?!?!!!!!!!!!asflks%@ upon learning that a) she’s not the last Targaryen alone in the world after all with no family, here’s Jon – boyfriend, lover extraordinaire, long-lost nephew, and the long-lost son of the brother she heard wonders of but never knew and b) she’s not the heir to her family’s dynasty after all, the thing she’s been working for since day 1, it’s Jon.

      No, it looks rather like a hook (first I thought, it was her needle, a crochet hook perhaps? But it’s too flat) – and what the hell has happened to her left hand?! Is it burnt?!

    20. I think they are going to re-create the Season 1 feast scene with everyone that’s at Winterfell (every character except Team Cersei). That’s where the pic of Sansa with a bowl will be from.

      Also, Tyrion looks extremely worried in every single piece of marketing so far, including the short shot of him in the trailer. I definitely think that he made a deal with Cersei.

    21. JenStar Runner,

      I’m fairly certain she will become pregnant as I’ve also always thought that her last chapters in ADwD she’s overcoming/breaking/recovering from the spells or poisons Mirri inflicted her with to make her barren.

      I agree on the timeline and how they’d do it. We can maybe assume that the first three episodes happen in a relatively short amount of time. After that though quite a bit of time could pass until the end of the finale. If Daenerys were to live one could see one of those typical time jumps right at the end showing her with a baby… *shrug* I don’t know…

      Yeah, it’s just a bowl. It’s easier to see if you open the large version. She’s only holding it with her right hand and her left hand isn’t even visible.

    27. Sansa appears to be holding a trencher, i.e. a bowl made from hollowed-out bread. Medieval folks usually didn’t use crockery but served most food in bread or on flat wooden plates with a slight rim. It’s a good way to avoid having to do the dishes!

      She probably has some sort of stew or a mix of meat and vegetables in there, so that would be a spoon sticking out.

        Quote  Reply

    28. Tron79,

      I mean in her mind she plans on being Queen of Westeros so her occupying a main seat in the Great Hall is the least of her worries. She can’t command respect if she isn’t willing to exert a bit of pressure against the hardened Winterfell camp. And also, sometimes it’s up to the citizens of a certain locale to explain their discourse and culture to foreign individuals so they’ll know how to proceed. So unless Jon didn’t give her some crash course of how to act, I wouldn’t totally blame Dany.

      How big do you think her entourage would be? Cooks, dressmakers hand maidens etc? I mean she’s spent her adult life being fawned over by those looking to exploit her position that was why she was a little harumphed when Jon first met her as was all business and charmless. It must make her a little vain.

      She’s going to have to suck it up being that she’s in Winterfell as the daughter of the man who tortured and killed Rickard and Brandon Stark. I mean the way Aerys chose to kill the Stark patriarch and his heir was 100 times more heinous than how Jamie dispatched the mad King.

      Are you kidding me? All those hairy barbarians ever do is bend the knee. Dany is kinda’ like Jon in that she blossoms wherever she is planted. She’s a queen and can’t be anything else but a queen. Even if the Bolton’s flayed her, she’d go down like a boss.

      Jon did bend the knee and place the North under her protection… so…

      Yup, Sansa’s just gettin’ down with a bowl of brown like all the others.

      I hope she’s passing out food, or something: All men must serve. She watched men going off to fight at the Blackwater battle and she knows that many of them will not be coming back. I hope she is kind and hospitable to all her guests.

    34. Anon,

      IMO, the show is going pretty far out of its way to portray Sansa as a ruler-in-the-making, so I would assume they will show her in the best light possible.

      I have no doubt that she’ll be wary of Dany at first, but I do think they’ll warm up to each other. I think they’ll both find that they havea lot in common with each other if they just sit down and have a 1-on-1 conversation, but we’ll see.

    37. So they gave us the full range of Dany’s expressions.

      And now I’m just gonna go grab a shield and shy away in a corner somewhere…

      But first. Let me just say. The HYPE is getting out of control. Can’t stay on top of it. Can’t seem to focus. Having fits of abnormal breathing. Losing sleep. Sleeping too much. Nervous binge eating. Pushing my food around the plate. Distracted driving. Driving way too fast. The whetstone is withering away, as the blade is reaching Valyrian Steel levels of fine tuning. Songs are flowing freely, but the melodies are going nowhere. Snow on the ground, but the trees are in full bloom.

      Must stay focused. The drums are growing ever near, and War is on it’s way.

      • If Lord Glover is back in S8, he’s my #1 candidate for first character to be wightened. He’ll probably get cranky about something, storm out of WF in a huff, and five seconds later feel a cold wind…

      • Sansa + spoon or bowl + Arya? Yes, I suppose it could be “Arya teaching her how to make poison.” My (wishful) thinking would be Arya teaching Sansa how to spoon-fling dessert at someone’s face with deadly accuracy.

      Have we been watching the same show? There are definitely periods of Dany being fawned over (not that she seems to lap that up in my opinion), but it seems most new people she meets threaten to battle her and there have been long periods of time where she was being mistreated or suffering through challenging circumstances for her people. Also, prior to being Magister Ilirio’s guests, she and Viserys lived a humble life, first in the house with the red door till in her early childhood and then years on the run in a much more impoverished life. As she told Jon when they first met, she’s been through her fair share of hardships, just like all the main characters. His opposition to her couldn’t have come asa surprise – most rulers she meets oppose her.

    40. JSchmeh,

      Sorry, didn’t mean to come off as combative. Let’s just say that Dany should understand that there are more people with legitimate grievances towards one another than just her and her usual stand. If the Starks have to put with her, then she has to put up with Jamie. Frankly, if Bran has to put up with Jamie then the others should as well. Killing a mad king isn’t as bad as knowingly pushing a child towards his death. At this point if I were Dany I would just stop mentioning my father and his throne, that’s not going to get her any points and after all is revealed it will be for naught as someone else is heir to that particular title. If she wants the throne, the only way she can get it is to conquer it. She can no longer play the Targaryen right to succession card.

    41. Anon: That definitely qualifies as ‘bittersweet’.She loses something she’s always wanted while gaining some other things she’s always wanted.

      Oh, definitely! And “the human heart in conflict with itself”. It’ll definitely be a shock and super conflicting.

      I think her desire for a family will win out. It seems to me what Dany’s always wanted and longed for most was a home, a family, somewhere to belong (in the books at least, she’s always looking for that house with the red door and a lemon tree – the closest and happiest thing she’s ever known to home while growing up). She had a crappy childhood, her only family was an abusive a-hole, she was never in any place long enough to truly call it home, she spent her life on the run from assassins, and I’ve always felt like part of the reason she’s wanted the throne so badly is because it’s a connection to her family, a family she’s lost.

      But it’ll definitely be a shock – what Dany’s worked for all this time is reclaiming the Iron Throne and then she finds out her boyfriend-lover-nephew is the heir, not her. So awkward! ;D But I think Dany’s desire for a family and finding out she’s not The Last will win out.

      • And still, Jon Snow is looking miserable. Kit H. sure has that Mr. Bummer look down cold.

      I’m waiting for the pre-S8 merchandising overkill to include a Zoloft-Game of Thrones tie-in, e.g., a TV commercial featuring Jon Snow’s morose face. “Ask your Maester if Zoloft is right for you.”

      • Yeah, the absence of ASNAWP is conspicuous. Perhaps… they don’t want to steal any of the thunder from Arya’s reunion with Jon by including her interacting with the other characters in these WF shots?

      Similarly, I’m still hoping Arya will have a memorable introduction to the Dragon Queen. Perhaps someone at WF (Jorah? Sandor?) will tell her in advance about Dany’s exploits at the Frozen Lake. (“Daenerys rode Drogon. Daenerys Targaryen is a great warrior. She had Valyrian steel balls and rescued the Snow Patrol from certain death.”)

    43. Che,

      I agree completely. Dany is many things, but vain is not one of them. I think sometimes people like to project things onto certain characters for their own personal reasons even though there’s nothing onscreen to back up what they say.

      I mean, the Northerners are more than welcome to fight the AOTD without Dany’s dragons, Unsullied, and Dothraki if they don’t want her there 🙂

      Absolutely! And while she was wandering the Red Waste, trying to find a way to save her people and herself who were all suffering from exposure, I doubt vanity was a primary concern.

    46. Love seeing more promo photos! I am getting so hyped; I can’t believe we’re nearly in April, the month of the premiere. It has been so long in the making. I remember sitting on here the day after the finale of season 7 and not quite knowing how long we’d have to wait, but knowing it would be a long time. I’ve said it before, but it’s so surreal that it’s nearly over!

      Onto the photos:

      Sansa with the bowl – it does look like she’s delivering food to the soldiers up on the battlements. That feels like a callback to her persona in Season 2 when she was in the red keep with the ladies and children – how she tried to keep spirits up.

      Robo-Bran – Maybe the first time Jon is reunited with his little brother? About to get some dodgy news that may take the smile off his face? Or is Bran going to be telling Sansa and Arya about the wall falling?

      Bran looking up – Dany’s dragons arriving?

      Brienne looking worried and wearing furs – just returned from the expedition south maybe and meeting up with Sansa again? Maybe Sansa is apologising for not trusting her? Brine is either concerned or feeling lots of feels.

      Brienne in yard – She’s got her hand on Oathkeeper – I reckon she’s looking at Jaime (probably not the first time she sees him again as she doesn’t seem shocked, more concerned/longing).

      Dany and Jorah – Clearly just arrived from their journey (or about to set out somewhere new? I’m going with just arrived) in the new Winterfell library set. They haven’t been inside long because they’re wearing furs, so are they being told about the wall falling and the AOTD rampaging? (Though they look like they’re leaving the room). I doubt it’s the Jon reveal as you’d imagine they’d be given some time to make themselves at home before that bombshell is dropped.

      Daenerys at the top table – I agree that she is probably on the receiving end of some pissed off Northerners. I hope she has been advised/caustioned to be more graceful/understanding/diplomatic than her – “I was born to rule the seven kingdoms and I will” spiel she gave Jon. She needs to use tact, which she isn’t terrible good at. Interesting she hasn’t got her advisors sat beside her (or Jon as the ruler of the North) – in a later shot it looks like Tyrion is stood beside the top table. That seems like the wrong way to go in to this situation if that is indeed the case. A bit of humility wouldn’t go amiss when she meets northern court for the first few times, but again, that’s not one of Dany’s strong points.

      Daenerys smiling in the library – If not Jon, maybe Sansa/Arya/Sam? Not sure why she and Jon would be hanging out in the library together, so I am leaning towards it being a scene with another character. Maybe she has been granted the library as a temporary queen’s study/meeting place and she’s with Jorah, Missandei or Grey Worm, an old confidant/friend.

      Dany up close – Is that there great hall behind her? It’s empty? She seems surprised/upset…betrayed (??). It may be something innocuous like Sansa offering her the head table?

      Jon – In the crypt? Brooding on the news of his true parentage. Alternatively, on the walls looking down at preparations for battle (the light to his left makes me wonder if it’s the crypt, I don’t remember the torches being so bright).

      Sansa beside Bran with northern entourage about to welcome Dany and co it seems. Nobody looks happy. Sansa is upon the walls when she sees the dragons, so I guess she high tails it down to the yard to form up the greeting party. Where’s Arya though? Either she is out of shot, or the much-hoped for Arya goes ahead wearing another face to scope out Jon and Dany theory is true. I hope so.

      Tyrion stood beside the table Dany is sat at during great hall scene? He stood before her in Dragonstone. I would hope he’d be sat at her side – if it is the case that he is stood there for the court audience, then it’s not a good look for Dany. Too imperial and grand.

      Okay, essay over!! Just over two weeks to go!!!!!!!!

    49. Wasn’t there some theory (there are many of them of course) based on one of the “prophesies” that was to the effect of Dany can be the Mother of Dragons but never the mother of children being taken to mean that if she lost or renounced the dragons that she may no longer be barren? My memory may be making this up from thousands of theories out there though.

      This would be a sort of analogy to Jon being able to leave the Night’s Watch without breaking his vows of lifelong service on account of dying.

    51. That’s the dragon right there sitting at the head table. It’d be a real insult to place her elsewhere.

      The people along the coast who have been terrorized by the Iron Born would be happy to learn that Dany extracted concessions from Yara/Theon that they would no longer reave and rape. Already, she is acting in the best interest of *her people*, even if some of them don’t know it yet. She is the one marching north to the front lines to defend Winterfell.. and any other kingdom that lies south of it.

      Meanwhile, what is Cersei doing? She’s importing FOREIGN soldiers to oppose the dragon queen. This is after maligning Dany for being ‘foreign’. Randyll got himself killed for a principle that he didn’t truly believe in. …and took his fawning son with him.

Fine, she can go down, kill Cersei, take the Throne and wait for Jon to come to her… Or, she can just simply have them burned/beheaded/eaten. Not wise to antagonize the only living party in the war that control the only weapons of mass destruction in this conflict.

      I’ve noticed this reaction from many and it is nothing new for women in power positions. It is difficult for many people to see a woman in power or reaching for power and not immediately judge her on so many levels that men are usually not judged for… looks, outfits, expressions – and make all kinds of interpretations that have nothing to do with reality, they are just based on assumptions or feelings and many are not used to or trust women in power. LOL, we are doing it here looking at images, what does this expression mean, we want to interpret without context… of course we are just having fun speculating, but still we really can’t understand the expression out of context. Besides, people can make many expressions in a minute, one second nervous and weary, the next surprised and shocked, and then smiling and happy.

      Again, it wouldn’t surprise me if they use this as a commentary about women in power reality today. This really is Dany’s first time in front of a group of Westerosi that she needs to ‘win over’… before it was always a war situation, bend the knee or burn. Here she will not have the burn option, so she will need win them with words and deeds. If would be interesting if they do use this as commentary, I could see Dany talking to Missandei about how nothing seems to be working, she tries the nice and friendly approach, they are suspicious, she acts the queen/leader/commander and takes her position on top, the people are irritated and hostile, she acts concerned and interested in they issues, and they are resentful and mistrustful… etc… how can she win them over? which approach will work…

      Regardless we all know the battle is ep3, so we need some drama/story for ep1-2 – how the North reacts to Dany and Jon parentage is as good as any, better then everyone jumping for joy, holding hands and singing songs that they are all saved now!

      Remember these characters are being used to tell a story, sometimes they need to be used as a plot device for the writers in order to create drama/conflict – you know something interesting to see. The North has suffered a lot, they are still weary and unsure about Jon, even though they crowned him… the leadership in the North has changed hands several times, and none were good for the people in general… they were hopeful with Jon, this might seem like a betrayal to many of them, and the faith they put in Jon… remember many of the Northerns have not witnessed what Jon (as we) have they don’t know or probably believe a bigger threat is coming. They are acting reasonably for who they are and what they know.

      We know Dany isn’t vain, unreasonable, or in love with power just for powers sake (we will see that tested with Jon parentage) – but often others do see her that way. She is a threat to most people who don’t know her. Her abundance of power would make most people weary of her trying to gain/control/demand more and more power, especially when they don’t know or understand her. It will be her job as a leader to reassure them and earn they respect – as it has always been… it is what she is good at (usually, can’t win everyone over) … give it time.

      I was thinking about this too, perhaps she is on a dragon out in the field and they don’t want to show it, or… perhaps through Bran, Dany learns about the wall and her dragon and wants to see for herself… or her and Jon both go, testing Jon’s true parentage by having him ride a dragon and scout around and both arrive to the battle late?

      So many people really throwing kidnapping around everywhere… is this leaked info that Cersei will definitely kindap someone? Dany, Sansa and Tyrion are the ones I see the most people talk about being kidnapped. It seems so unlikely to me that during the battle with the undead, that a group of mercenaries will come in and manage to find and kidnap someone… If the undead don’t kill them, wouldn’t the presence of them kinda shake their resolve, or am I thinking too much and it will just be a plot contrivance to get us to the next step in the game. I really don’t like this kidnapping angle… but ah well, we’ll see

      Now that I think about it, Jamie yells during battle and some have heard it as ‘Bronn’… perhaps Bronn is leading the mercenaries in the kidnapping? Would give Bronn something to do, I guess. I don’t see him leaving with Jamie out of loyalty or anything…

      That first picture of Sansa is really nice. I can’t tell if she’s “happy.”

      However, if that picture is any indication, we shouldn’t worry too much about not being able to see what’s going on in nighttime scenes. That shot of Sansa is illuminated by torchlight. So was the WF Crypts teaser. Plus, I doubt the showrunners would put the cast through 55(?) grueling nights of filming to produce the longest ever GoT episode – only to wind up showing us barely discernible shadows.

      If that were the case, they could just just pull an Arya vs. Waif and have all the action happen off-screen. 😡 Sorry… I’m still a little peeved that scene ended abruptly with Arya slicing the candle, and we didn’t get to see (or hear) Arya take out the Waif.

      I’m not sure Sansa greeting them is the same sequence as her being on top of the battlements. Her neckline is different. When we figure she’s greeting them, it’s just the dress collar closed around her neck. When she watches the dragons fly off, her neckline is filled in with a black kerchief. I wonder if the “over the battlements” scene is the dragons going off to try to be the front lines for the battle at Winterfell.

      Why do so many people have it out for Dany for sitting on the main table? Where else was she meant to sit with the northerners?
      If people don’t remember Cersei also sat at the main table in the first Episode and Robert probably did as well before he started flirting with other women, per Jon in S6 all the Starks but him sat at the table during a feast so there is plenty of room there and Jon bent the knee to Dany so obviously she would be sitting in a leadership position at the table and even if he didn’t she still would be as a “important esteemed guest”, obviously I’d say she’s not the only one sitting there as there are spaces between each seat.

      No it’s not a proven thing, only one of the many theories people came up with. In Croatia Kit and Lena looked like they were filming together, Kit was in costume but his hair was loose, he didn’t have a sword so people thought Jon either was captured by Cersei or gave himself up to her because someone he loved was captured but something fishy was going on, Kit did a previous scene in Croatia yes but that scene people saw them filming they mucking around, practically posing for the paparazzi and Kit kneeling to Lena but they seemed very aware they were being photographed after they were done with that they covered up the window so no one could see and continued filming. That set and outfit Cersei wore is from this promo shot of Cersei and turns out people checked the metadata on it and it’s from the first episode so that Kit and Lena thing was them just screwing around not a actual scene just like Kit and Emilia playing around with dragon heads in the beach in Spain for S7 when the scene with dragons was actually filmed in Ireland. Not to mention the director who is filming the documentary after GOT was also in Croatia and people mistook her red hair for Sansa lol

    85. On the Dany discussion train: every season, we will inevitably get one or two comments deriding her for being assertive and fulfilling her duties as a queen. It’s why a lot of people seem to want her to get pregnant. Her mentioning it constantly last season was either a red herring or shit stirring/political pandering on the part of TPTB.

      If Dany does become pregnant, I think it’ll be more likely something towards the end of the season. Technically, she isn’t barren since she ‘gave birth’ to three dragons though, if you think about it, and I don’t think the MMD prophecies figure into the show as much as they do in the books. If they did, it would complicate things more, and TV is not good at translating complexity.

      I’m not even crazy about Dany and I think Clarke is a terrible actress who probably contributes to some, if not all, of the criticism that gets thrown at her character. But it drives me nuts as well to see people bashing her, or any of the women on the show who aren’t hypersexualized or behaving in unrealistic ways.

      Plus I think these pictures were deliberately thrown out there to ruffle feathers because Dany is a complex character (like Catelyn) and is probably going to be pivotal to the story in some way as time goes on.

      I’m not sure that it is fair to assume that negative reactions to Dany’s photo are all due to people having a hard time accepting powerful women/ or women reaching for power. I’m a woman and while the photo in question didn’t really riled me up that much, I understand why people would have a negative reaction to that particular photo and it is not because Dany is acting powerful/or is a powerful woman. It is because of the WHERE it is taking place. Dany sitting on her stone throne in Dragonstone (all good), hell Dany sitting on the Iron Throne (still good). Dany sitting on the main seat at Winterfell? Well that is where the ugly reaction comes from. It is Winterfell, home of the wolves!!! Do not underestimate the love fans have for the House of the Ned! Dany is foreign to this particular world, there’s nothing tying her to it. Even Theon sitting on that chair wouldn’t feel so wrong. But Yara, Jamie, Euron, Oberyn or anyone not DNA related, named or raised by the Starks shouldn’t sit in the main seat at Winterfell. I know Robert may have but Robert was pretty much a brother to Ned.

        Quote  Reply

    87. The moody picture of Dany in the chair just epitomises why I dislike that character. I assume here she is acting the big I am again most likely to either Tyrion, Jamie or perhaps Sansa/Arya. The worried/more vulnerable pic of Dany I assume is either her finding out she’s not that welcome (I feel this is unlikely) or more probably her finding out about the reanimated dragon.

      On the Bran pics, could he be looking at the dragons as they fly over perhaps? The scene by the fire maybe where he tells Jon about his parentage.

      Tyrion looks concerned, is this in relation to Jamie or perhaps the news that the White Walkers are through the wall?

      The Jon pic I feel confident is him looking at Lyannas statue in the crypts.

      Good spot whilst they images likely all come from the Premiere or the 2nd episode latest it’s pretty clear if she gets pregnant it won’t really feature until the last couple of episodes (assuming she’s alive at that point).

      But it looks like the GoT Eyeshadow Palettes aren’t available yet, and Urban Decay has its own Launch Countdown Clock too: 15 days, 7 hours, and 28 minutes as of 4:32 pm EDT today. Don’t they want my money now?

      I scrolled further and saw that “Coming Soon” is Arya Stark’s Needle Eye Shadow Brush ($28):

      Take my money, damnit! 💸

    91. Ten Bears,

      To be fair, I expected better from Urban Decay – the palette is cute enough but to have the colours slide from the side, and the shades are nothing new…this is what they did for Alice in Wonderland way back when:

      I’ll probably get the White Walker lipstick and that’s about it. Sigh. I was so ready to get ALL THE THINGS. More $ for the storyboard book? 🙂

    92. Danny,

      I completely agree that it’s not fair to assume negative reactions/opinions of Dany (or Sansa, Catelyn, any character for that matter) are due to gender. But I don’t think Dany is sitting in the main seat at Winterfell’s high table. Based on the photo, it seems she’s to the right side of somebody (Jon? Sansa?) who is in the center. I do think she deserves a place at the high table in this case – she’s bringing the manpower and dragonfire to give the North a fighting chance. But I don’t think she’s presiding over this gathering. I’d expect that would be Jon and/or Sansa while Dany, and possibly Davos, Bran, and Arya take other seats at the high table.

    93. Pigeon,

      It’s true, the shadows don’t look like anything we haven’t seen before – they seem to be mostly neutrals and muted tones. I was kind of surprised by that. The Lannister palette does fit completely and totally into what I usually wear, which I’m pleasantly surprised by though! XD;;; I’ve got the ultra pale skin, blonde hair, and eyes the colour of used paint-water (ugh) that can’t take any real colour (when I wear red lipstick… oooh god, not good. It’s like you can’t focus on anything else but the red because I’m just a beige spot in the world).

      Beige spot in the world… oooooh, now I know what my dating ad will say! ;D

      But I kind of love the packaging. I was hoping for pop-ups though!! POP UP DRAGON!

      The eyeliners are really pretty, but I’m an idiot with liner. Lol. I’m the colour of drywall and blonde as well. I wish they’d done a pop of of the throne with maybe suspended dragons over it, direwolves next to it….I don’t know, it’s just kinda bulky, and for $65…. The Lannister colours are great. But I have pretty much all of the shades. Brushes are cute but not very useable. Ehhhhhhh I guess I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up too high, hee! I will likely get a couple of things. They did Sansa dirty with that lipstick shade. 😆

    95. Pigeon,

      Yeah, that’s the thing – $65 is a lot for shades people likely already own so I think, at this point, the only special part is the name and packaging. I love your concept for a GoT UD pop-up!! ;;;

      OMG, I’m terrible with liner – it used to drive me to tears. Unless I could get it perfect, I’d wipe it and try again. So I eventually stopped and resorted to tightlining and applying a dark shadow to my lashline with a smudge brush XD;;; I’ve reduced my make-up routine to 20 min!!!

      The brushes are amazingly cute!! I love the sword motif!! But yeah, I’d only buy them for that, not to use – I’m pretty attached to my MAC brushes.

      No, it’s not a very Sansa shade! I’d expect something fresh, youthful, bright, and delicate to represent her! Not really that nude peach colour.

    97. All this fuss about a single picture..

      A Queen is acting like a Queen..Wow what a surprise ..

      It’s a sad thing that GRRM didn’t make the North as a seperate continent like he did with Essos instead of making it as one of the Kingdoms in the Westeros..

      The Lords who neglected the Calls of Nights watch for Years cannot question dany who has done more for the North in her short time in westeros..

      Jon Snowed,

      Jon being Rhaegar’s son does not take away the fact that Dany being the embodiment of House Targaryen..
      She still is the Last Dragon in the story.. Unsullied and Dothraki follow as their queen..she will still be the Mother of Dragons..
      She is Queen in her own right and Jon’s reveal will have no impact on this..

      I do that too! I think it works way better since I’m so pale – especially liquid liner can look really harsh. Plus I always have that one eye that waters and messes it all up. Augh.

      It would be cool if they did an Oathbreaker powder brush. 😁

      I wonder if Ten Bears would let us practice on him? 😉

      Omg, I feel like we’re make-up soulmates! I have an eye that loves to water and mess everything up too – my left one!! ;; What do you use for tightlining? I use the Marc Jacobs fineliner ultraskinny gel crayon and I really like it – but sometimes it can get a bit smudgy on my lower waterline.

      I wonder if Ten Bears would let us practice on him? 😉

      Oooooo!! Yes!!! Ten Bears, I got references!! ;D

      Given how few viewers would remember a background character like that, they would confuse more viewers than they would enlighten!

      Adrianacandle: I completely agree that it’s not fair to assume negative reactions/opinions of Dany (or Sansa, Catelyn, any character for that matter) are due to gender.

      From a straight statistical viewpoint, it is more than fair to do this: you basically are going with the prior probabilities if you do. People (particularly men but also women to a lesser extent) are prone to put negative interpretations on behaviors when those behaviors are done by women than when the same behaviors are done by men.

      Speaking of statistical distributions, how many conflicting “that expression can only mean ______” statements do we have?

      Also, given that Bran has gone cyborg, wouldn’t it have been more fun to have him go Bender? 😀

    101. Alexander: Technically, she isn’t barren since she ‘gave birth’ to three dragons though, if you think about it, and I don’t think the MMD prophecies figure into the show as much as they do in the books.

      Technically, that is still consistent with being barren! An infertile couple that adopts is still an infertile couple, after all.

      As for the books, Daenerys has gotten pregnant since MMD’s prophecy: she suffers a miscarriage at the end of the last book after eating berries that she convinced herself were eaten by the Dothraki (a common mistake by a starving person!) but that made her extremely sick instead.

      I’m not sure if I’m properly understanding what you mean but wouldn’t an assumption that somebody’s reason for disliking a character/person/person’s actions is due to gender be prejudicial as well? As it’s based on assumption, not support provided by that individual? Or do you mean ascribing this prejudice to entire groups of people based on statistical support? I think that’s entering tricky area since it doesn’t take people’s individual reasons into account and can generalize a whole group based on other individual’s actions, opinions, or beliefs.

      We all do have prejudices and biases as humans do, and I think it’s important to be aware of them and accept prejudice might be playing a factor, but I’m not sure it’s fair to assume a prejudice is a basis for an opinion unless that person has exhibited reasons to support this – unless I completely totally misunderstanding your meaning! 🙂

    103. The aqua or turquoise stuff is eyeshadow, looks like from the ‘White Walkers’ section of the palette (ironic.) Definitely at least 2 of the eyeliners as well….oh this will be fun. Normally I’d say we should use Longclaw as well but as we are staying in the range of blues, transfer shouldn’t be n issue with just Needle. 🤔

      I really wish the Mother of Dragons highlighter palette didn’t look like it was embossed with pineapples.

      It’s “The Warrior.”

      Not that it matters. None are available now. They’ve disregarded thousands of impulse buyers who might not come back again in a month to order the stuff.

      Oh I know which look it is, but it’ll take products from the WW section to do. Makeup companies always love to do the waiting game for launches, it makes people intensify their fear of missing out and go ham when it does release. Same reason they seem to make everything ‘limited edition’ – better buy it cuz it’ll be gooooooone!!!!

    105. Clob,

      I agree, Brynden Rivers (Max Von Sydow), the former Three-Eyed Raven wasn’t so robotic and inexpressive, he even had a bit of charisma. Besides, Bran had been taught since season 5 – although the character doesn’t show up the entire fifth season, we can assume he’d begun his training during all that time untill season 6 and on. So Bran hadn’t gotten so much information at once to stay numb as we see him since season seven premiere.
