Another dragon bites the dust! Welcome to WatchMojo, and today, we’re counting down our picks for the Top 3 Things You Missed In Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4, “The Last of the Starks.”

#3: David Benioff & D. B. Weiss


After last weeks epic battle, in which the Night King fell and the Army of the Dead was defeated, the surviving characters were due for a celebration. And the actors we typically see on screen weren’t the only ones joining in on the fun. Series creators David Benioff & D. B. Weiss made an appearance and celebrated the fall of the White Walkers as two bearded wildlings who listen to Tormund praise Jon. Seems fitting that the showrunners would try to sneak their way into this scene - it’s a lot more appealing than being in the show for last week’s episode. We’d take eating and drinking over fighting the army of the dead too.

#2: Arya Stark: NOT a Lady


As much as Arya has grown and changed over the years, one thing has remained a constant: namely, her unwavering sense of self. In the scene where Arya rejects Gendry’s marriage proposal, the Hero of Winterfell tells the newly-appointed Lord of Storm's End that she’s not interested in the lifestyle he was offering. This line is a callback to several scenes in the series, as Arya has basically been trying to tell people this since Season 1. In the 4th episode of the first season, when Ned tries to tell Arya that her sons will be one day be knights, princes, and lords, Arya objects: This scene is also called back to the Nymeria scene from Season 7. Frankly, Gendry should have seen this coming, given how often Arya has told him that she’s not interested in being a lady. Interestingly, Gendry being rejected by Arya mirrors what happened to his father, Robert Baratheon, and Arya’s aunt, Lyana Stark, who, of course, ran away with Rhaegar Targaryen, ultimately leading to Robert’s Rebellion.

Before we get to our top moment, here are some of the best lines from this week’s episode:

#1: Lann the Clever


Turns out Bronn was paying attention whenever Tyrion waxed poetic about the histories of the Seven Kingdoms. When negotiating with Tyrion and Jaime, Bronn rightly notes that house Lannister was founded by someone just like him. He was referring to Lann the Clever, who lived during the Age of Heroes and swindled Casterly Rock away from House Casterly by using nothing more than his wits. Supposedly he would stir conflict between members of House Casterly by stealing from one brother and planting the loot in another’s chambers. That sounds a lot more like something Bronn would do than either Tyrion of Jaime, and should Ser Bronn of the Blackwater take Highgarden once the war is over, there will likely be songs legends written about his clever and ruthless climb up the Westerosi hierarchy.
