What are some easter eggs that you expect from original show?

Catspaw dagger might belong to a member of house Targaryen


mamula1

Good idea


Aegon1Targaryen

That would be cool.


Cervus95

"A hundred years from now, no one will have heard of House Velaryon".


Aegon1Targaryen

LMAO unfortunately, the truth. They lost so much relevance and prestige with Bobby B's Rebellion.


Lebigmacca

And they betrayed the Mannis at Blackwater. They deserve their downfall


Aegon1Targaryen

Cause they were never Baratheon men, that's why. They are all dragon men up there. ​ I love the Mannis but I'm not angry with the Velaryons.


Lebigmacca

I wasn’t being too serious with that, but anyway long as Aurane does something with that fleet of his besides being a pirate, I’m gonna be happy. Preferably I want him to join Aegon


Aegon1Targaryen

Either Aegon or Dany, I'm happy. I just want to see them backing up a Targaryen again.


Sealy_99

Aurane might have bent the knee after the Blackwater, (and we all know what happened later), but the rest of the Velaryons are still loyal to Stannis. The ASoS Appendix still lists them as his supporters, and Jon sees the Velaryon banner at the Wall.


spyson

They reason they had any sort of power is due to being Valyrian so Targaryens favored them.


Aegon1Targaryen

Yep. House Targaryen gave them lot's of privileges.


Fictional_Apologist

Even better if they add a quip about their sons becoming common pirates.


jennystark

somebody finding dragonglass and being like what an absolutely useless piece of rock 😂😂


RossoOro

Maybe even one of the 3 wild dragons having their lair in the dragonglass cavern?


Aegon1Targaryen

The prophecy about the "hammer smashing the dragon" that exists in Fire & Blood being mentioned.


[deleted]

Omfg yessss!!! I doubt casual show watchers catch the meaning though, since in the show we were only told that Robert killed Rhaegar without any mention to his infamous warhammer. Still, it'd be so cool to have that line in the HotD


Aegon1Targaryen

I think people would still get it. Casual fans seems to know Robert's Rebellion so I think they will make a conection.


[deleted]

I hope so ; )


slowp0kechef

“When the hammer shall fall upon the dragon, a new king shall arise, and none shall stand before him.”


Aegon1Targaryen

This. I love this prophecy.


vinniimx

I hope so, I freaked out when I read this the first time.


Thomaerys

Since we now know the Celtigars will be involved in some fashion it would be cool to see their Valyrian steel axe. Maybe even get an original name for it. The Pincer, Red Claw, ... ?


AhsokaTheBest

"Young" Melisandre in the background of some Essos scene.


ysf02

Holy shit this would be amazing


Aegon1Targaryen

Bring this on.


AegonTheAuntFooker

The 3 dragon eggs.


Novel-Afternoon837

SPOILER I think in the Dance we will not see Elisa Farman in the books Elisa Farman stole some eggs from Dragonstone


ShmebulocksMistress

That would be so amazing! Yours is the one I hope happens the most so far! ☺️


spyson

A random Starbucks cup on a table just to fuck with us


twtab

I'd add something like this: Young Rhaenyra comes down to breakfast with Viserys and Alicent and is a moody teenager unhappy with her new stepmother. Viserys ignores the tension between his daughter and new wife by expounding on the virtues of this new drink that's been brought from Essos and is drinking coffee.


[deleted]

The greatsword of House Stark "Ice" in the hands of Cregan Stark.


Lebigmacca

Yes pleaseeeee. D&D kinda forgot about Oathkeeper and Widow’s Wail


mamula1

How? Jaime and Brienne used it.


Sealy_99

Yep, I've got a lot of criticisms of D&D but they still made use of the Valyrian steel weapons. If anything, they were the plot armour which allowed Jaime and Brienne to somehow survive when they should have been killed at least five times, and also because the Valyrian steel could kill wights, not just Walkers as in the books.


twtab

I suspect there will be at least one actor from GOT hidden in the background of a scene like Daniel Craig's cameo in Star Wars. Not playing characters, but visiting the set and being put in the background somewhere.


mamula1

Bran traveling through time lol


TheSpiritOfFunk

I really dislike Bran after season 4 or 5 and hate him as king (btw I really liked season 8), but this would be awesome. I want some bleeding weirwoods


[deleted]

[удалено]


TheSpiritOfFunk

I really loved the Daenerys episode. Fire and Blood. I only disliked king bran and the plotarmor. Season 8 is way better than season 7


slowp0kechef

There's a prophecy about a hammer and a dragon in the book of fire and blood and I'm pretty sure that, that was Robert and Rhaegar destiny


slowp0kechef

“When the hammer shall fall upon the dragon, a new king shall arise, and none shall stand before him.” this was a quote from Hugh the hammer


ConorIsOnRedditNow

Maybe they could mention the eggs that Elissa Farman stole years ago? A theory I've seen a few times (and believe) is that the three eggs Illyrio gives Daenerys are those same eggs.


sirnay

I think that’s pretty much accepted . She steals 3 eggs. Dany gets what are supposed to be the only 3 eggs in Essos. George definitely put that in there so reads would make that connection.


TheSpiritOfFunk

Merman Varys


JIOarg

Tyland Lannister having a mistress from the Vale.


animegirlofficial

Honestly would love to see an Emilia Clarke cameo, I don’t even care if it would break the 4th wall she carried House Targaryen on her back for like a decade and played a huge role in the commercial success of GOT. One could argue she is the reason HOTD even exists and Daenerys got did so dirty. If Ed Sheeran can get screen time I think they can manage this. And throw Harry Lloyd in there as well


WhatTheFrenchToast33

Or she could play another Targaryen!


Kelembribor21

Jason Lannister being annoyed of somebody almost killing him in a joust.


DannyBlack70

I’d imagine we’ll definitely get Ice, the House music themes (other than House Lannister) should all remain in some form, and for the most part the castles we’ve already seen should look relatively similar, though I won’t mind at all if Casterly Rock and Highgarden get changed.


BatmanofSteeI

Since everyone is pointing out the cats paw I will go with some other swords. I would be shocked if we did not see Ice being wielded by Cregan in the later seasons It could also be really cool to see longclaw but not have it be a big deal at all (like if they do a seen in the later seasons when Cregan Stark marches south you see a lord Mormont (perhaps with a small speaking role, or maybe a glorified extra at the edge of the frame) that happens to have longclaw on him with the original bear pommel. An Easter egg that you would have to pause and look for basically with no dialogue even pointing it out. As minor as it seems stuff like that can be really cool without being in your face. Another one that could come to mind is having the cave paintings of white walkers in dragon stone still be there Or seeing a much better armed and equipped nights watch (I know they are pretty removed from the Dance of Dragons but I would be shocked if we never saw the wall) And lastly it would be cool if each season had some sort of narration (perhaps due to how awesome the history and lore videos are) with some of the surviving main cast from the main show. Not too often (just at the beginning and end of seasons) to the point where you almost forget about it. Perhaps we can even catch up with some of our main characters post Season 8 for a few minutes. Similar to the scenes of future Saul Goodman from Better Call Saul Example Season 1 has Tyrion opening a book and saying “before the Game of Thrones dragons ruled Westeros, etc) And The final season might wrap up with Jon Snow north of the wall telling a group of wilding children about the House of the Dragon. The House he destroyed Perhaps that is a bit too cliche but I would love something like that.


crgm210

i expect 1-2 season 8 jokes. they will be very subtle
