Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Review – ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’

Eammon Jacobs reviews the second episode of Game of Thrones season 8…

After Game of Thrones‘ premiere episode reunited a sprawling list of characters to Winterfell to prepare for war, it was always going to be interesting to see how all these different character dynamics would work in a highly stressful situation. The threat of the White Walkers is weighing them all down and with such little time to prepare, tensions were always going to run a little higher than usual. Daenerys, Jon and Sansa waste no time interrogating Jaime after his arrival – and their vicious line of questioning is completely understandable. Right from the beginning of the episode the series returns to its dialogue-heavy roots, exploring different relationships and overtly stating how dire the situation is. Just like old times!

It doesn’t feel like it’s recycling old material though thanks to role reversals and characters discovering a genuine sense of agency.
