If you’ve been keeping up to date with the channel you’ll know that earlier in the week I dropped some tidbits on leaks that we had in regards to the final episode and whilst it covered some minor parts and revelations, there was still a lot missing.
Well an entire episode breakdown has just leaked online and not only does it cement the prior things we found out but it also adds a lot more detail.
Throughout this, I’ll be breaking down the plot of Episode 6 in all of its entirety from beginning to end. Whilst this is a leak, it is consistent with what we’ve already seen but do take it with a pinch of salt as obviously, we can’t verify this until we see the episode for ourselves.
This is full spoilers ahead so if you don’t want to know anything about the final episode in the season then this is your last last chance to turn the video off.
With that out the way I just wanna give a huge thank you for clicking this. I hope you enjoy it, now sit back, relax and let’s get into my full episode breakdown of the Game Of Thrones: Season 8 finale!
Game Of Thrones: Season 8: Episode 6 Entire Plot Leak Breakdown
The episode opens with Jon, Davos and Tyrion are walking through the aftermath of Kings Landing.
Tyrion walks through what’s left of the castle and sees Jaime’s hand so he starts to uncover the rubble and he confirms both Cersei and Jaime are dead.
Over the last week, we’ve had reports that Jaime could still be alive due to him not receiving an after show send off but this leak confirms that the character is indeed dead and up there with Varys, Melisande and the rest of the characters that D&D couldn’t be bothered to write a proper ending for.
Anyway, They find Grey Worm and his men they have Lannister Soldiers trapped and they’re about to kill them. Jon tries to tells Grey Worm to stop to which Grey Worm tells Jon that it’s the Queen’s orders. Then they cut to Dany giving a speech pretty much saying how she freed the people from Kings Landing, and the new goal is freeing the rest of the world. Dany turns to Tyrion and tells him he committed treason. Tyrion tells her that she killed thousands of innocent people, and he takes off the hands pin and throws it at the ground. Due to this betrayal, Dany sends him to prison.
This is consistent with the way the show seemed to be going for the character and Tyrion has pretty much had a hard time dealing with the way that Dany has changed so rapidly over the past season, which…yeah, he isn’t the only one.
The Death Of Daenerys
From here Jon goes to see Dany, at which point she is sitting on the Iron Throne alone. Jon tells her that she needs to stop being a crazy and that Grey Worm killed the Lannisters army from the previous scene. Dany tells Jon that she’s doing it for the people. Jon pretends to understand and agrees but he is tricking her. When her guard is down, he stabs her and kills her, which, if this is the way she goes out is pretty disappointing. Drogon comes and is standing over her body, and he burns or melts the Iron throne and carries her away.
I can see this being pretty disappointing if it happens, especially the iron throne bit as who finally sits here has been teased for so long that there’s no way that this doesn’t let people down.
Anyway, Grey Worm has Tyrion and Jon as his prisoners after their betrayal. The *council (led by Sansa) tells Grey Worm to release Jon back to them, but he refuses. That’s when Tyrion says that the new King or Queen should decide what happens to Jon. Sam suggest for a democratic vote for the new King which Tyrion calls stupid. The council votes and decide Bran Should be the King. Bran picks Tyrion as his hand.
This is consistent with the leaks that we’ve had so far and though many, myself included switched and said they changed to Sansa, this is a point of contention which I’ll discuss later.
Tyrion tells Jon that his punishment is going back to the wall and join the Knights Watch. Grey Worm accepts Jons punishment. He doesn’t bend the knee and then he leaves with his troops and Dothraki army and together they go on ships to go free Slave cities.
Game Of Thrones Season 8 Ending
They show Tyrion leading the council and Jon says goodbye to Sansa and Arya. Arya tells them she isn’t going back home. She’s going to explore whatever is west of Westeros because that’s where no one has been.
The final scene is a closing montage. You see Arya on a ship with Sansa ruling Winterfell. This is sort of where the confusion between Bran and Sansa has come from for many I think because with the leaks before this being so sparse there was a lot of back and forth on it. So, just to clarify Bran is King of the seven Kingdoms and Sansa is the ruler of Winterfell.
Jon doesn’t stay at the wall he reunites with Tormund and Ghost whom he pets.
The other fates are as follows.
The Council Members are Samwell Tarly the Grand Maester, Davos Seaworth Master of ships, Bronn Master of Coin and High Garden, Brienne Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, Yara Greyjoy Lord of Iron Islands, Robin Arryn Lord of Kingdom of the Mountain and the Vale, Gendry Baratheon Lord of Storm’s End and Yohn Royce Lord of Runestone.
Sam mentions that they seen Drogon in some location but aren’t sure. Bran just says, “ill look for him” They don’t have a Master of Laws and Whisperers and Tyrion is looking for the right people to fill those spots.
And no, they don’t clarify what Bran was doing during the Battle Of Winterfell.
And that’s pretty much everything we have on the episode. If this is how it goes down I can definitely see a lot of people being disappointed as on the whole I think the majority of the characters get a raw deal. I know it’s game of thrones and you should never expect a happy ending but this feels like quite poor handling and I’m still kinda hoping in the back of my mind that this isn’t how it goes down but more and more every day as these leaks come out they seem to back up the ones before.
Obviously I’d love to hear your thoughts on the leaks and if you think they will happen or not.
