Oh, those wily Game of Thrones creators – always up to something. New Season 8 filming observations from the Spain set could place some unlikely characters arriving in King’s Landing, but there’s a good chance producers are trying to pull a fast one.
Predicting the final Game of Thrones season is a crapshoot, especially without George R.R. Martin’s books to guide us. We’re expecting some major deaths by next year’s finale, but a complex algorithm may have predicted even bigger shockers in store.
Game of Thrones Seasons 6 and 7 revealed the Jon Snow twists we all predicted, but Season 8 may throw yet more revelations. A surprising return for the final episodes seems to hint there’s more to tell of Jon and Dany’s mutual history.
We’ve come a long way from Game of Thrones keeping battles offscreen, but Season 8 is going all out. New set reports indicate the HBO drama more than doubled its shooting time for fan-favorites like “Battle of the Bastards,” and is only getting started.
The urgency of Game of Thrones’ final season will preclude significant characters, but it seems we can write off an entire family. An in-demand star confirms the eighth and final season will find no time to address his ultimate fate.
Super Bowl trailers and hexidecimal posters are great, but it’s high-time we had a full trailer for Westworld Season 2. Thankfully, HBO is here to oblige with an extended glimpse of all the robot uprising chaos and a look at the world(s?) beyond.
The Night King’s army made one familiar addition in Season 7, and Game of Thrones may donate even more fresh meat next year. New set photos seem to suggest the Army of the Dead has some powerful – albeit unwilling – allies near and dear to Daenerys’ heart.
Game of Thrones is no Westworld, but we Westerosi can fall down conspiracy holes all the same. So it was with Ned Stark’s curiously inaudible last words from Season 1, which Sean Bean himself has finally put to rest.
HBO has a vast bottom line to pump millions into Game of Thrones, but even they have limits. Company heads admit that pricey purchases like a Game of Thrones spinoff or even Big Little Lies Season 2 have burned serious holes in their pockets.
