The second episode is rather a bridge between the assemblies of the remaining (alive) who are gearing up for the big war against the dead. Taking it ahead from the promo, the episode begins with Jamie Lannister coming to face Daenerys who reminds him of his deeds (killing their father the Mad King). However, his brother Tyrion and Brienne of Tarth (who secretly loves him) come in his defence. This further has Sansa forgive Jamie, which further creates tension between the Dragon Queen and Lady Stark.
Meanwhile Arya Stark runs into Gendry to check up on her weapon which she asked the smith to customise for her. She asks him about the White Walkers and impresses Gendry with her skills.
Jamie visits Bran and apologises for pushing him to death in the first season. He asks Bran why he didn’t tell the others of it, to which the third eye Raven tells him that he (Jamie) would not have been a part of the war to come if he was murdered Furthermore, at Jorah’s advice, Dany tries to call it truce with Sansa by declaring her love for Jon Snow and fighting alongside him for the war against The Night King. However, they are interrupted by Theon who returns to Winterfell and pledges to fight for the North.
Jon is reunited with Eddison Tollett, Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarrion and as they’re strategising against the dead army, Bran tells them that the Night King will come for him and that he needs to be served as bait. Samwell Tarly questions Jon on whether he spoke to Dany about his true Targaryen heritage. Meanwhile, Brienne, Tyrion, Jamie, Podrick Payne, Ser Davos and Tormund come together in the final hours before the battle.
On the other hand Gendry reveals to Arya that he is Robert Baratheon’s bastard. The conversation leads to Arya asking Gendry if he has been with other women. This adds up to them sleeping together after a hot make out session. Sam offers his father’s sword (valyrian steel) to Jorah. Jon finally tells Daenerys the truth about his parents and that he is Aegon Targaryen. The war has officially begun, as the Night King’s army is seen watching Winterfell from afar.
