[SPOILERS for those who haven’t seen this week’s “Eastwatch”!]
After last week’s explosive episode, this week’s “Eastwatch” relaxes into some less-literally-fiery political turns and groundwork-laying for the end of the short season. But we don’t need to tell YOU that, eagle-eyed viewers! This week’s installment was also packed with details that even the most eagle-y of eyes might have missed. We collected the most intriguing, subtle details below, but did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments!
1. We noticed some sparks between Jaime and Cersei when she told him she’s pregnant – adding credence to suspicions that there’s more to this brother and sister relationship than meets the eye.
2. This week, we learned Jon isn’t so fond of the White Walkers, leaving chances of a future team-up looking grim.
3. Ser Davos said aloud that Jon’s last name is “Snow,” which may be an allusion to the snow in “A Song Of Ice And Fire,” or the snow he grew up around in Winterfell.
4. Randyll and Dickon Tarly seem to have burned to death, but these fan favorites to claim the Iron Throne were still screaming at the end of the shot. Down, but not out?
5. Gilly said there are 15,782 steps in the citadel where Sam has been staying – but everybody knows there are 15,786. Hm!
6. We noticed there’s a child traveling with Sam and Gilly – but what could that mean? Who is he? Hopefully this is addressed next week.
7. Eagle-eyed viewers may notice that Tyrion Lannister is played by actor Peter Dinklage, who is mostly known for his work in Game Of Thrones.
8. Eagle-eyed viewers may notice Gendry has a hammer.
9. Eagle-eyed viewers have vision that’s five times better than a normal human, and yup, you guessed it — this allows them to hunt even tiny prey from hundreds of feet in the air.
10. Did you catch the fact that snow falls in winter? Winter is white. White…. Walkers? Arya has been walking a lot the last few seasons? Is there something there?
11. This week we counted THREE dragons – but let us know if you spot more!
12. “Drogon” sounds like “dragon!” “Rhaegal…” Ray gun? Let us know in the comments!
