Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 bloopers Behind The Scenes The Last of The Starks funny moments
Perfect gift for Game of Thrones Fans, Westeros and Essos map;
During the Winterfell feast scene when Tormund is speaking about Jon riding Rhaegal, a modern coffee cup can be seen near Daenerys. The coffee cup received considerable news coverage, and HBO confirmed the next day on Twitter that it was an error, stating “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”
Many fans pointed out that Jon’s voice sounded different when he was giving the eulogy of the fallen. It should be noted that Kit Harrington does put on an accent for Jon Snow. And during that scene he is projecting his voice quite intensely which, for actors, can make it difficult to maintain accents or voices. As such Jon’s voice becomes deeper and his accent wavers slightly.
When Jaime is leaving Brienne at Winterfell, he says to her “Cersei is a hateful woman”, which is a callback to his line when they are standing over Joffrey’s corpse in Season 4 Episode 3 where he says “You’re a hateful woman…why have the gods made me love a hateful woman?”
Missandei’s final words (“Dracarys”) is for Dany, telling her to burn the Keep down; the scene parallels Daenerys’s talk with Olenna Tyrell in season 7, where the latter tells her, “You’re a dragon. Be a dragon.”
Tyrion once again challenges Cersei and puts his life in her hands for a second time, just as he did when he said “Do it!” in the season 7 finale while standing in front of the Mountain; like before, she backed down and decided not to execute him.
With Gendry legitimized, House Baratheon is restored as a great house of Westeros. However due to the Baratheons no longer being the royal house, the formerly crowned stag of House Baratheon will revert back to what it was before Robert’s Rebellion. That being, simply a black stag on a field of gold.
In the episode there is a reference to Tyrion already having a wife before Sansa. This is treated as a light moment (by Tyrion as well, oddly enough), although it’s actually a reference to the horrific Tysha story told by Tyrion to Shae and Bronn in Season One. Tysha was the peasant girl Tyrion temporarily married before Tywin had her gang-raped by his guards. Martin’s novels include further revelations about Tysha which have been cut from the show, where the last indirect mention of Tysha happened in Season Three, Episode Seven, with Bronn sardonically telling Tyrion “How did marrying a whore work out for you the last time?”.
The brief scene between Arya and the Hound talking about “unfinished business” in the capital could be referring to two different plot points moving forward – the heavily hinted at “Cleganebowl” and the fact that Cersei remains on Arya’s kill list (Cersei also has green eyes, which Arya has yet to shut).
Gendry proposing to Arya could be seen as a callback to Robert Baratheon telling Ned Stark in Season One, Episode One: “I have a son, you have a daughter… we’ll join our Houses!”, although Robert was actually referencing Joffrey and Sansa at that point. Arya, however, turns down Gendry’s proposal and, for the third time in a row (after Robert/Lyanna and Joffrey/Sansa), a Baratheon-Stark match is aborted.
For the second time in her life, Dany lights the pyre of a significant man in her life; first was Khal Drogo in Season 1, Episode 10 ‘Fire and Blood’ and in this episode, it was Ser Jorah Mormont of Bear Island.
When Gendry proposes to Arya, he pays off his own foreshadowing line back in Season 3 when he says to her “You’d be my lady” while Arya pays off her own line to Nymeria last season, in which she says “That’s not you”, only this time it is Arya referring to herself by saying “That’s not me.”
The 8 people who now know that Jon Snow is a Targaryen & the rightful heir to the throne are: Dany, Jon, Bran Stark, Sam, Sansa Stark, Arya Stark, Tyrion Lannister, & Lord Varys.
Varys mentions there is a new Prince of Dorne. It is unclear who that is at the moment but presumably it is being portrayed by actor Toby Osmond, he had stated in a post that he was protraying a “royal” in a tv show that fit the description of Game of Thrones.
This episode appears to contain the last scenes of Tormund and Ghost in the show. It is unclear if they will re-appear again by episode 6. However the audience can take solace in knowing their characters survived and will have a somewhat happy ending
