Following seven gripping years of drama, double-crossing and dragons, Game of Thrones finished production in July 2018. And as anxious viewers eagerly await the release of the HBO show’s eighth and final season in 2019, speculation about how the series will end has hit fever pitch. Now, one of its biggest stars has come forward with a potential spoiler – and fans are freaking out.
In 2011 HBO premiered a little fantasy show set in the far-off land of Westeros. Based on George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Game of Thrones pushed the envelope when it came to sex and violence. But above all else, it proved to be utterly enthralling entertainment. And viewers – well over ten million a week, to be exact – couldn’t help but tune in.
Focusing on several factions who are struggling for control of their kingdoms, Game of Thrones’ story shifts dramatically from season to season. As characters battle for their place on the Iron Throne, their fortunes often twist in shocking ways. To wit, audiences never even know which characters will make it out of each episode alive.
