This is the end for the HBO series generally considered one of the best of all time. Based on the hugely popular novel series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones has been big business for HBO. It holds the record as the most awarded series in television history with 161 Emmy nominations and 59 wins so far. Also, holding the record for HBO as the most viewed program ever with season 8 averaging a record 44 million viewers per episode in the U.S. alone.
The final season, which contains six episodes, is filled with all the action, duplicity, clashes, and treachery you have come to expect from GoT. A new layer is that some of the most epic battles are between the living and the dead. The fate of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance and deciding battle is going to happen at King’s Landing.
Production wise there has been no dip and season eight continues that. It looks fantastic. Other than the odd Starbucks cup…but that is a whole other story. Twists and turns keep coming. Big characters have surprise endings. Nothing is predictable. Who is finally going to sit on the Iron Throne?
Storywise, the Night King (Vladimir Furdik – Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) leads his Army of the Dead, comprised of the White Walkers and an undead dragon, against Jon Snow (Kit Harington – Seventh Son, Pompeii) and Daenerys Targaryan (Emilia Clarke – Solo: A Star Wars Story, Last Christmas), who have combined their forces. Daenerys has a legitimate claim to the throne, but that may be compromised if Jon’s true identity comes out. And, of course, Cersei (Lena Headey – Fighting With My Family, 300) always has a devious plan up her sleeve.
There are loads of questions in regards to the main players in the series. What is going to happen to Jon, Daenerys, Cersei, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau – Oblivion, Gods of Egypt), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage – The Station Agent, X-Men: Days of Future), Sansa (Sophie Turner – Dark Phoenix, Time Freak), Arya (Maisie Williams – The Falling, Mary Shelley), Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie – The Hunger Games: Mockingbird, Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi), Jorah (Iain Glen – Resident Evil: Extinction, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), Davos (Liam Cunningham – The Wind That Shakes the Barley, Hunger), and Bran Stark (Ian Hempstead Wright – The Boxtrolls, Closed Circuit)?
