Game of Thrones has returned, and with it, so has Kotaku Splitscreen’s weekly recap of all things Westeros. This week we’re hitting episodes one and two of season eight, Winterfell and A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

We spoil the episode in its entirety, and also talk about differences between the show and the books. However, we do not discuss any leaked show spoilers, and any speculation about what might come in future episodes is just that.

This week we give our thoughts on the first two episodes of the newest season, discuss what we liked (and didn’t like), make some wild predictions, and guess who’ll live and who’ll die. (Psssst Brienne is doomed.) Plus, is it just me or does anyone else hope beyond hope that the entire Night King storyline just ends so we can get back to the good stuff?
