Never fear, if you don't have time to watch the season 7 finale again, here's our review which will help jog your memory.What else do we know about 'Game of Thrones' season 8?
As usual, it's a close-guarded secret what goes down in 'Game of Thrones' but given that season 7 ended with Night King and his army finally getting through The Wall, you can assume shit is going to go down.
"It's an incredibly emotional, haunting, bittersweet final season and I think it honours very much what [author George RR Martin] set out to do – which is flipping this kind of story on its head."
There is! It took a while to get one but here it is:
Of course, glad you asked.How will 'Game of Thrones' end?
That, we can only speculate on, but we can tell you how some of the main actors felt about their final scenes.
"I feel very, very… I’m trying to find the right word," Peter Dinklage told The Hollywood Reporter. "I think [Tyrion] was given a very good conclusion. No matter what that is — death can be a great way out."
"I ended on the perfect scene," Maisie Williams told The Guardian. "I was alone – shocker! Arya’s always bloody alone."
"But I was alone and I had watched a lot of other people wrap. I knew the drill, I had seen the tears and heard the speeches."
Emilia Clarke told The Daily Mail: "It’s over and I cried like a baby on the last day. I felt completely lost. Ten years is a long time. It’s like losing an actual limb. I was 22 – a child – when I first walked on the Game of Thrones set. I grew up with [Daenerys]."
While Emilia spoke to our own Brian Lloyd about the final season in an interview for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
"All I guarantee is that it is moving and epic beyond words. I can't even. As a human being, emotionally, it's a massive thing to be walking away from so just know that every single actor's come to it and given their everything.
"It's like a marathon and we've just reached the last hundred-metre dash and we're going to throw everything at it."
Kit Harington said on The One Show: "I cried at the end! It wasn’t anything particular that happens. You have to remember, I’ve done eight years of it. I think, no-one really cares about [Game of Thrones] more than us… It’s been an institution longer than any other institution I’ve been in. School, drama school, anything."
