If you're the kind of?Thrones?fan who lives on a scant diet of spoilers between seasons, then keep reading for a few tasty morsels about Season 8 below. If you're the kind of fan who plugs your ears and hums at the very mention of?Game of Thrones?in your dedication to avoid spoilers, then take your fingers out of your ears and use them to click away now because there are some mild Season 8 spoilers below.
Season 8 will begin at Winterfell
"Season 8 opens at Winterfell with an episode that contains plenty of callbacks to the show’s pilot. Instead of King Robert’s procession arriving, it’s Daenerys and her army. What follows is a thrilling and tense intermingling of characters—some of whom have never previously met, many who have messy histories—as they all prepare to face the inevitable invasion of the Army of the Dead."
Sansa doesn't like Daenerys
At least not right away. According to?EW, "Sansa isn’t thrilled that Jon bent the knee to his fancy new Targaryen girlfriend, at least not at first."
The final season will be "bittersweet"
We all know this is code for "emotionally devastating, but narratively satisfying."
"It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death," co-executive producer Bryan Cogman told?EW. "It’s an incredibly emotional, haunting, bittersweet final season, and I think it honors very much what George set out to do—which is flipping this kind of story on its head."
Game of Thrones?Season 8 premieres sometime in 2019.?
