17 Details In 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Episode 5 You Might Have Missed

In “The Bells” - episode 5 in the final season of "Game of Thrones" - we are treated to another monumental battle. We break down the hidden meanings and references in this fifth installment of season 8, including 17 details that GOT fans may have missed. Beware: Spoilers ahead.
It was impossible for major characters to escape death this time around, and we saw some of our favorite characters - Jon Snow, Daenarys, Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion and Varys - confronted with new challenges that push them to the brink. There are major callbacks to previous seasons, showdowns we've been waiting for (Clegane Bowl), and hints for the season finale.

    Good review. Varys and his several messages I often wondered how many crows ever got to see. If the series was perhaps expanded longer perhaps they could have covered it. Three things come to mind, the Red Witch in Maureen that said they would help Daey, but it never happened & although the Stannis Red Witch did help against the Whites. The prophecy of Bran Flying never happened. The Shame Lady or the Doern Women in their cells shown their final doom (I guess to be assumed happened?).

    Dany will be declared as Mad queen because of the massacre of the innocent and Jon will be the King of Seven Kingdom. There might be a scene where Dany tries to execute jon with Drogon fire, But As he is Targaryen , he wont get fried and will come out in one piece which will show people that he is one true heir to the throne and at that moment dany will know that she is fucked without any lubricant .
