  • We're holding Q&A livestreams right after each episode of Season 8, at ~10pm ET Sunday: ee-tv.com/username-AltShiftXlive Patrons can watch past streams: www.patreon.com/AltShiftX/posts?tag=livestreams Alt Shift X shirts! standard.tv/altshiftx

    • Does this mean you won't be doing a more-detailed analysis of each episode like you've done in past years?

    • @Alt Shift X - I had a thought concerning the dragon horn Euron has in the books. Is it possible that this horn that no mortal man may blow that controls dragons, is actually a weapon of the White Walkers created during the long night? That the ancient Targaryens brought it back after the events of the long night to safe guard? Perhaps this horn can't be destroyed and can only be hidden. If the White Walkers were to reclaim that horn....

    • What do you think of Looper's (et al) theory that the "old friend" Bran was referring to and waiting on wasn't actually Jamie, but Theon?

    • Good Heavens, I remember when Alt Shift X was just a lil' youtuber [pinch cheeks]. Look at how big he's grown! [scruffs hair]. Can't wait for this season's review magic. Should be one for the ages.

  • Hotpie: represent the Riverlands, whatup biyatch!

  • You included Hot Pie but missed Robin Arryn and Edmure Tully, whose actors are known to come back for this season...

  • The line "Then comes another, younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear" didn't really specify if it was going to be a woman or a man. It could literally be anyone in the cast, I think, and not just limited to Daenarys, Sansa, or Brienne.

  • sad that we couldn't have elephants (or olliphants) in the show

  • the one thing this recap couldn't cover: just what the fuck did podrick do to those tavern girls?

  • How the FUCK did you know arya and Gendry could have a relationship? It's like you read the foken script before the show aired

  • U didn’t talk about Catelyns brother and his child and wife

  • Episode 3 of season 8 is a Hot Pie episode

  • what do you mean Bran has no memory of his fall? he can see forwards and backwards in time at will.

  • My favorite part of this video is the Hot Pie part. lol.

  • Hot Pie is the Night King, sorry for spoiler

  • its funny you should mention Davos' love for shireen and to a lesser degree Gendry over his son who became fully indoctrinated into Melissandre's bs about Stannis

  • Best part is definitely 11:30

  • Hot Pie will die, be resurected by Night king and then he will make the best cake icing in all of Westeros

  • Gendry POSSIBLY has a crush on Arya? I think that's a bit understated

  • Go hot pie!!

  • This is podrick pod fucks

  • POD FUCKS LMAO

  • It's always amused me that those who violated their own oaths to the Mad King give Jamie so much grief for doing the same.

  • I understand Lyanna was supposed to marry Robert, but why couldn't Rhaegar and Lyanna just say "Hey we're in love, sorry Robert, sorry Elia, that's just the way it is" and make it clear Lyanna was not abducted. Robert and the Martell's would've been pissed but that's it, I don't think it would've led to full on rebellion, even if Aerys was a bad King.

  • Would you please put Italian subtitles?

  • where is the episode breakdown brah

  • Send a raven, alt shift x has reached 1mil subs.

  • Hot Pie is Azura Hai. Fight me haters.

  • Yeah!!!! One Million Subscribers Baby!!! To put into perspective, the official HBO GOT channel has 3M subs. LOL

  • Will there be an review of the episodes?

  • Analysis of Episode 1???

  • you're awesome. this was so thorough. and i love how you've always related book references in your vids yet left possible theories open to the viewer as well as give your own opinion. TX!

  • How long does it take to create such a video?

  • 11:22 damn she thick af

  • “Sir Friendzone” 😂

  • where the fuck is the season 1 ep 8 video? your slow

  • You should do podcasts I listen to game of Thrones podcast at work everyday and I’m constantly wishing you had one

    • Hey do you have any game of thrones podcast to recommend me ? Which one do you listen to ?

  • Daenerys and Jon will die and Tyrion barely escapes while Jaime gets the Iron throne, there's the ending guys, enjoy your show now.

  • Team Hot Pie.

  • I really like your videos but don't spoil with the books please I really want to get surprised by the show

  • Where's the episode 1 video tho?

  • Tyrion is being poisoned by Varys. Targaryen blood is mixed with his wine. Nevertheless, Tyrion will be the King. Easy.

  • Hype for the S8E1 recap :)

  • Your balance of humor in your videos is perfect. Most youtubers are sometimes cringy or go on too far with their humor, but the way you put in "hotpie" and calling ghost "doggo" makes me laugh.

  • Season 8 episode 1 breakdown??

  • WE👏🏼NEED👏🏼SEASON👏🏼 8👏🏼EPISODE👏🏼 1👏🏼EXPLAINED👏🏼

  • This video is now turning into a waiting room for Alt Shift X's Recap of Episode 1 S8.......

    • +flint park lol I know, but I'm still going to be patient just like I was for the game of thrones for their year delay because his reviews are just that good and worth it.

    • Seriously, we're almost to episode 2 already how much longer is it going to take?!?!?

    • right....alt shift x gives the best commentary episode analysis, and his voice makes it even better and isn't as cringy as most game of thrones reviewers.

  • If Daenerys never meets ghost I’ll probably hate the show forever

  • @altshiftx Are you working on a review for the latest episode? Would love to hear ur thoughts!

  • It's not a proper Alt Shift X video without Cleganebowl hype pew pew

  • Yo!!! Its taking too long!!!

  • Please make a video about the Crypts of Winterfell and Ice Dragon!

  • Ok....meta reasonings, but I don't think Dany will win the throne, maybe the best outcome for her is to go back across the sea to ensure her brave new world metamorphoses correctly. But anything could happen, but worst case scenario is that she looses her perspective.

  • dafuq is the episode 1 vid?

  • keep up the great work!

  • Where’s the episode 1 breakdown??

    • its online are you blind

  • Hot pie

  • Jorah = Sir Friend Zone

  • Dude where is the explanation of 1st episode

  • Its friday today. Havent seen the Breakdown of E01!! When are you uploading the same?

  • Hey asshole, where's the fucking analysis

  • Wait how is Brienne more beautiful than cersei?

  • Episode 1 still not reviewed

  • You gonna upload S8E01 explained or what?

  • I’ve been avoiding all spoilers for S8 since when I was in Europe for vacation so I can’t wait to watch it.

  • Thank you!

  • Dude, your Neuro Linguistic Programming Skills are good ... xD

  • Only thing i really dont like about this channel is how long it takes to release a new video. I know its a lot of work and it takes time (and you don´t owe new video to anybody), but I feel like you are doing this on purpose for some reason and its pretty damn annoying.

    • In a way it's a good idea. He releases the video closer to the next episode so it can be fresh in your mind. Dude puts forward a theory and if its correct, you might notice it easier on Sunday. I give props to the guy, it takes allot of work if you don't have a big team, i wouldn't have the patience to make these huge storyboard type videos.

  • I can't believe the younger beautiful queen was Jon snow all along

  • When is the episode analysis coming out?

    • Morrissey Not soon enough.

    • It was in Thursday, but not this time ! :( You can do it ! We need it ! We need you ! :)

  • Great work. How about a video about the Night King?

  • Where season 8 episode 1 recap at

  • Congrats on the one million subs!

  • Can't wait for hotpie to take his rightful place on the iron throne

  • H O T P I E

  • Bro, please post the review videos a bit quicker :-) Still waiting for Episode 1 review

  • What if Circe's child is a daughter and she dies in childbirth? It would be by Jaime kind of and someone younger and potentially more beautiful

  • ee-tv.com/tv/video-G0d2Pj_KeGY.htmlHYPERLINK

  • Feelsbad, this channels declined so much in content that I've had to watch Talking Thrones more. Thought it would pick up more with the new season, looks like it's not. Episodes been out for like 3-4 days? and not even review video.. there goes my first resort Game of Thrones goto channel.

  • will jaime kill night king cuz he is king slayer?

  • So I was just rewatching this episode and I noticed three interesting new images in the intro/theme song sequence. They are quick and subtle differences. I may be reading to much into it, but they could be important. The first is at Winterfell, when it takes us down into the crypts. While going through the torch lit corridor, where all the statues/tombs of the fallen Starks are on each side, there is only one statue that we can actually see with light. All the rest are completely dark. It appears to be a woman...maybe Lyanna? Second thing I noticed was that the carved face on the wierwood tree looks different than the previous seasons. It appears to be a rounder, fatter face...and call me crazy, but I feel like it kind of resembles Sam! The third thing I noticed was on one of the rings of the astrolabe. It shows a set of three figures. To the far left is a lion with a dark fish in its mouth. I’m guessing that either refers to the Lannister’s crushing the Tully’s and/or Blackfish. Or possibly instead of a kraken, they use a fish as a more subtle hint of the Lannister’s (Cersei) crushing Euron and the Ironborn. To the far right appears to be a White Walker with a dagger in one hand and the head of an animal in the other. It’s either a wolf or lion head!! The image is fast and not the clearest, so I’m struggling to tell which one. Then in the middle is a figure or mashup of figures hanging from a rope. I took screenshots of everything I mentioned. Let me know if there’s anyway I can send them to you. I’d love to get your opinion and interpretation!

  • Waiting for the season premiere breakdown!

  • Love the chill commentary

  • hotpie is a survivor and he'll probably survive whatever happens lol

  • Episode review soon? IM JONESING MAN!

  • «Also, Pod fucks»

  • hot pie is the white king

  • Beric has the last life after six lives so the last one is 7 because there are seven kingdoms

  • Waiting for 8x01 review brother

  • Seriously bored by the series. Can't wait to see the final episodes and be done with it.

  • My favourite supporting character is the Onion Knight.

  • Hot Pie is Azor Ahai

  • Congrats on 1mil subs! Quality over quantity!

  • waiting on s8 episode 1 analyses :D

  • Also, Pod fucks

  • Please do a cersei video

  • I would love to see the Hound fighting the Mountain and he’s actually killed only to be resurrected by maybe Berric who then dies and the Hound calls upon the Lord of Light and summons a flaming sword. We know he’s seen into the flames so it would be good to see him overcome his fear of fire and death to kill his brother

  • thanks mate. now i am good to go for season 8.

  • What happened to Edmure Tully?

  • Also.. Pod fucks.

  • Hot pie is Azor Ahai

  • Watching old videos on repeat waiting for S08E01 recap, still no news? :(

  • Loving the dry humor & super informative, structured recap. This is just what I needed to prepare for the new season. That part about Brienne made me tear up, she's my favorite. Hope she'll live.
