⚠️8x02 RECAP/ANALYSIS - SPOILERS BELOW⚠️
Next is a quick scene between Daenerys & Jorah, where, though he still comes off as desperate, reassures Daenerys about Tyrion and that she made the right choice in naming him Hand (thank you for being right for once in your life, Jorah). Again, she can be impulsive but that’s why she surrounds herself with people like Jorah to calm her down. He tells her to forgive Tyrion, and has another suggestion… to make amends with Sansa. He knows Sansa is a key player now & she needs to get on her good side.
So that’s exactly what she does. They’re ALMOST okay (though its clear they’re still suspicious of one another), once Daenerys learns how to appeal & talk to Sansa, but right at the end it falls apart after Sansa asks her about what happens after the war. Wish Bran was there to remind them there might not be an after so they just forget about the whole thing lol. But overall I liked this scene between Daenerys & Sansa & I’m glad they addressed it.
Theon arrives, looking like himself from season 1, saying he’s there to fight for the Starks (addressing sansa herself), and Sansa hugs him. This was a sweet moment, they haven’t seen each other since Ramsay days before the Battle of the B*, and seem to both be relieved that they’re out of that mess that they had to suffer through together, with Theon obviously proud of her, shown by him addressing her directly. (BUT I really hope the show runners don’t take this anywhere else though. Just saying.)
Next we see Davos & Gilly interacting with Northerners, preparing for the battle. Davos tells the men they’re soldiers whether they like it or not, and when a little girl says she wants to fight, it’s clear that he got effected. He probably didn’t expect that, and she might’ve reminded him of Shireen, the daughter he never had, (especially with the mark on her face) & thinking these deserve to live a life without this war… Gilly then tells the kid she’ll be in the crypts with Baby Sam, as we’ve seen in the trailer. The “safety” of the crypts is something mentioned numerous times in this episode… Might not be as safe as they think…👀
