    21 Questions "Game Of Thrones" Needs To Answer About Season 8, Episode 4

    Did anyone else notice Pod in the background negotiating a three-way?!

    1. What is Daenerys whispering to Jorah here?

    HBO

    Something we'll probably never know, TBH.

    2. Whose job was it to build all these funeral pyres — aren't there only a few dozen people left at Winterfell?

    HBO

    And certainly not everyone is building them...do they even have a pyre-building expert around?

    3. Also, how did they build them so quickly? It seems like it's only been 24 hours TOPS since the battle...

    HBO

    Seems like a lot to have to cut down trees, build the pyres strong enough, and then load all the bodies on?

    4. What do they do with all the ash and mess when the mass funeral is done — just...leave it there?

    HBO

    Is it going to be ANOTHER person's job to clean it all up?

    5. I guess all the Winterfell cooks survived?

    HBO

    Unless all the Dothraki and Unsullied soldiers have some feast-making talents I'm unaware of.

    6. I love Gendry, but like...does he even know how to run/manage a castle and territory of the Seven Kingdoms?!

    HBO

    Look, he's a wonderful blacksmith, strong fighter, all-around good guy, but like...managing hundreds of people, politics, and a massive household is entirely something else.

    7. BTW, why did Gendry say he used to be Gendry "Rivers" — he was not born in the Riverlands, nor did he grow up there?

    HBO

    He was born in King's Landing (and lived there for his formative years), which means his last name should probably be "Waters"?! Heck, even if they wanted to go by Storm's End (the ancestral seat of House Baratheon) it should've been "Storm."

    8. Did Bran, like, draw out a blueprint of the wheelchair Daeron Targaryen built for his nephew?

    HBO

    How does one explain vision quest images to someone in order to have a wheelchair built "the same?" Or, IDK, did he find a drawing somewhere? If so, how and where?

    9. Did anyone else notice Pod in the background here negotiating a three-way?!

    HBO

    LOLLLLLLL.

    10. How many babies do we suspect were made tonight?

    HBO

    And does this mean we're gonna have a lot more SNOWS running around Winterfell in nine months?

    11. Do we think Brienne is pregnant now?

    HBO

    I know that'd be weird at this point in the show, but it's entirely possible, just SAYIN'.

    12. Why are there no tracks from Bran's wheelchair out in the snow?

    HBO

    Riddle me that.

    13. How did Bronn find Jaime and Tyrion so easily?

    HBO

    Like, he just wandered into winter town/Winterfell holding that crossbow like that and NO ONE stopped or questioned him?!

    14. Also, who's even running this tavern?!

    HBO

    Like, literally, Jaime and Tyrion are the only people in there, but the candles are burning, fire is roaring, ale is flowing. Are they just self-serving because everyone else is dead?

    15. Can dragons even fly with holes in their wings?

    HBO

    IDK how the physics of dragon-flying works, but seems like the holes in Rhaegal's wings would be a problem?

    16. Why the FUCK wouldn't Jon physically go over to Ghost and say goodbye?!

    HBO

    I'm sorry, but saying "because of the budget" is not a good enough answer.

    17. How the heck did Dany not spot Euron (before he killed Rhaegal) and his fleet while she was flying way up high?

    HBO

    You can literally see how easy it is to spot them in this shot?

    18. How did they know Euron took Missandei?

    HBO

    Why would they jump to that conclusion? She could have just as well drowned in the water for all they knew?!?!

    19. Why does Jaime suddenly want to go to Cersei's aid again?

    HBO

    He already knew Daenerys and her armies were heading south to reclaim King's Landing and to take down Cersei. So why does hearing about Rhaegal's death and Missandei's kidnapping make him change his mind? It doesn't make sense!

    20. How long were Dany and co. standing outside King's Landing before Cersei showed up?

    HBO

    Did they just arrive outside the city gates like, "Oh, hi, we're here to see Cersei," and then wait for an hour or two?

    21. And finally, why didn't Cersei just end it right there and kill Dany, Drogon, and everyone else?

    HBO

    I mean, they have a ton of scorpions, archers, and who knows what else aiming right at them.
