GoT 8.0: Season 8 Prologue

What’s the Night King doing with his ice dragon? Will Tyrion tell Daenerys that Cersei is pregnant? Is everyone on their way to Winterfell? And Hot Pie! Why is no one talking about Hot Pie?!

A lot went down in the last season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. To help refresh your memory, Nerdette’s Tricia Bobeda and Greta Johnsen rejoin Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!’s Peter Sagal to recap Season 7. They also take a stab at making their own predictions for the next season, which premieres April 14. Press play!

The gang will recap each episode of Season 8 every Monday, and we want to hear from you. Join the conversation and share your own theories with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #GOTnerdcaps.

You can also send us a voice recording! Just record it on your smartphone and send the audio file to nerdetterecaps@gmail.com, preferably late Sunday night just after the latest episode.

Who would you be most sad to see die in this final season of Game of Thrones?

“Brienne, because I always support tall women.”

Greta Johnsen, owner of a boutique medieval crown-making factory

“Samwell. Because I’m pretty sure he’s the one who writes the story, so if he dies before then, we will not have the story at all, which would create a paradox of space and time only The Doctor could fix.”

Tricia Bobeda, currently existing in multiple dimensions

“My career as a know-it-all TV show recapper. We shall never come this way again.”

Peter Sagal, who hasn’t seen the sun since August 27, 2017
