When Game of Thrones season 8 premieres on HBO in 2019, there seems to be one thing that you can expect more so than anything else — death. To be specific, a LOT of death. We’re going to see many different characters likely meet a brutal end, which shouldn’t really be much of a shock given that this is the sort of world that this is! We’ve already come to expect such carnage at the end of the series and it feels as though the show’s producers are ready to oblige by bringing a whole lot of this to the table.
Obviously, we do hope that there’s at least one likable, familiar character who makes it to the very end in one piece — we’ve just got questions as to who this could be and how they are going to be to make it.
For now, we can’t hand out any specific answers mostly because there aren’t any. Even if it was, we’re fearful of what HBO would do to anyone who did start handing out a few more details. Let’s instead just dish out some of what Sophie Turner had to say on the subject of the story ahead to GoldDerby:
“I can tell you that there’s definitely a coming together of people … Everyone is coming together to fight the impending doom. There’s a lot of tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right. It’s Game of Thrones, so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before.”
One of the big reasons why production for season 8 was so long, despite being only six episodes, was that production couldn’t do what they did previously with multiple filming units working on individual storylines. The characters weren’t anywhere near as scattered. Everyone was largely situated in one place and with many battle scenes, including the longest one to film in the history of television, you have to know that the show wants every facet of the story to be perfect.
