The cold open with The Hound, with the music perfectly cutting away to the GoT theme, is hype AF.

Any suggestions why Winterfell is always included in the opening credits, even when there is no action there?

Because it's the Starks' home and it's the first place we are introduced to in the show. It's like a home base. Winterfell and KL are in every credits.

Every location that any part of the story is taking place in, during that given season, has a part in the opening credits. Winterfell has been in every season so it has always been in the opening credits. Same as Kings Landing as Spilner pointed out.

Trying to think of all the locations in the opening credits since S1:
Castle Black/The Wall
Winterfell
The Dreadfort
Iron Islands
Riverrun
The Twins
Kings Landing
Dragonstone
Dorn
Bravos
Mereen

Was there one at Storms End?

99% sure The Wall is too.

Opening shifts episode to episode, not season to season.

The Eyrie
Pentos
Astapor
Yunkai
Vaes Dothrak
Oldtown

And I think Highgarden maybe once or twice, basically just when it was taken by Jaime.

I wonder what the opening for the beginning of S8 is going to be, since damn near everyone that matters is going to be in the same location.

Open on Kings Landing, as usual.
Pan to Winterfell, as usual.
Start to pan to the wall, but it's fallen over so it kind of tiptoes back to Winterfell.
Then the orb eye realizes it has nowhere else to go, and just kind of putzes around for a few seconds, before ramping the theme tempo for another 70 seconds to make it to the title blocking.

It absolutely changes episode by episode - not season by season.

Details here:
https://gameofthrones.fandom.com/wiki/Title_sequence

The rule - as producer Spence said early on is:

First, as a rule, every episode's map must contain King's Landing, Winterfell, The Wall, and "wherever Daenerys is at the moment" - even if Daenerys does not appear in that episode. And KL, WF and TW have appeared even thru episodes and entire seasons when they were not used as locations (WF in S3, TW in S2, etc.).

Also not every minor place has locations made or shown - in those cases the capital of that region is shown. And some instances not every location shown in the episode is shown in the credits due to time constraints.

Since Dany left Essos and came to Westeros now they always show Winterfell, The Wall and King's Landing and also Dragonstone in S7.

for S8 I guess it is going to depend if Dany is in WF or KL as to whether Dragonstone is shown or not.

In total KL, WF tand TW have been shown 67 times in 67 episodes. Mereen is next with 30 appearances.

Thanks, I missed a bunch. It's almost like it's been two years since we've seen GOT.

I loved that they showed the Bolton sigil on Winterfell. It made you resent it more and more each time, and made it that much more satisfying when those banners fell and the Stark banners returned.

Well that's the thing, I'm in the middle of Season 4 and Winterfell has been in ruins forever but they keep showing it. The wall at least made sense in that Jon was north of the wall.

Makes sense now. I guess I never noticed KL is always included because there's always still action there.

Just made it through GOT finally. Favorite episode is the finale of Season 6, Winds of Winter. I got so hyped watching it

I'm in a full rewatch and I just made it to the Ed Sheeran episode. That pissed me off more than the first time through, and that scene is only memorable because of enragement.

At least Wilko's cameos as Ilyn Payne made a lasting impression of disgust on the viewer.

So true and he should fire his agent. Had he been a dick and Arya killed him his career would have gone next level.

We know Euron Greyjoy is [unfortunately] still a player, so they'll likely show Pyke as well.

Anyone of consequence still in Essos? I can't remember the last time they just completley skipped Essos altogether. Was that the case in S7?

Maybe Dario has to bring the second sons and armies of yunkai and mereen to save the day and have a three way with Jon and Dany?

Right. No Essos in 7.

The only places shown in credits last seasons besides KL, TW, WF and Dragonstone were Oldtown x7, and one of these each episode: The Twins E1, Pyke E2-4, Eastwatch E5-7. Pyke was shown despite the episode not going there (but had Euron appearance). And TW and Oldtown ere always shown in S7 even though they did not go there in several episodes each. It was like they wanted 6 in each episode for the credits so if they did not have somewhere else they visited they added Pyke.

S6 had Essos throughout, but not since.

"A huge growth in you."

"Average."

Did we decide we were going to start spoiler tagging predictions and what not. I've seen at least one post that had information from the leaks, whether it was intentional or not.

Granted it also depends on the leaks being accurate.

Quote:

Dany was warned in her visions that she would be betrayed three times - once for blood, once for gold and once for love. she has been betrayed by the witch lady who killed Drogo and her son (for blood) and Jorah (for gold).....could tyrion betray her for love?
Could Dario be the one that betrays her for love? He loved her and she made him stay in Mereen. Maybe he joins up with the Golden Company that is shown in the trailer? Just a thought

She gets hotter every year. She looks so much better as a blonde.

He can't really betray her, she left him behind.

We won't see him again.

It was good, but I was disappointed they didn't change the stag over KL to a lion once Cersei took over. She doesn't seem to be making a claim because of her marriage to Robert, they specifically mention Lannister instead of Baratheon when listing her titles.

Maybe it's just me, but I think most girls look better in their 20's than they do at 13 or 14 or whatever she was when GoT started.

I was thinking the same thing. Way to go out on a limb.
