Game Of Thrones Season 8, Episode 5 Breakdown — "The Bells"

The penultimate chapter of Game Of Thrones is now in the books (or–not actually in the books, you know what we mean) and we’ve officially entered the home stretch for the series. But even with only one episode left, things in Westeros are just as volatile as ever. In the video above, we break down Season 8, Episode 5 “The Bells” and take a look ahead at what we think will happen in Episode 6, the series finale. Spoilers ahead and in the video above.

Episode 5 featured some tragic losses. The Spider himself, Varys, managed to get himself caught in a web that was anything but his own making–although there may have been more going on than you might have initially picked up on. Specifically, there were some indications that he may have been trying to poison Dany. Meanwhile, Jaime and Cersei Lannister found their own sort of poetic peace with one another, and Dany lost a big chunk of her sanity–the list goes on.

But hey, Cleganebowl finally happened! Sure, it may have ultimately resulted in even more loss but still. That counts for something, right? The episode still managed to toss in a ton of Easter eggs and references, too!

Meanwhile, the list of just who, exactly, is still alive and kicking for the series finale continues to dwindle. But even with a rapidly depleting roster, we’ve got some theories as to just how the last episode will wrap things up. And if relentlessly cross-examining body counts and the inevitable mortality of your favorite characters is a little too much for you right now, take a break by going back to the moments that really matter–like every time Ghost has been a very good boy over the years.
