Notes

General

  • Due to concerns about spoilers, HBO is only releasing the titles of Season 8 episodes the moment they start airing - meaning that Game of Thrones Wiki can only make up accurate episode titles for each one as they are revealed.
  • Two long-standing fan theories are proven true in this episode: "Cleganebowl," the showdown between Sandor and Gregor Clegane, and Mad Queen Daenerys.
  • Winterfell and Last Hearth both appear in the Title sequence despite not appearing in the episode while Dragonstone once again does not appear despite being a major setting for the battle.
