August 30, Rating: January 1, Full Review…. When you think of threats in Game of Thrones , the first thing that comes to mind might be Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons or maybe even the Night King. But does anyone remember the ice spiders in Westeros lore, which Old Nan told Bran about several years back?
