This ‘Game of Thrones’ fan theory may just have nailed the entire plot of Season 8

Warning: Contains both icy and fiery spoilers.

If that Maisie Williams interview slip is anything to go by, we’ve still got 14 long, hopeless months to wait before the final Game of Thrones season airs.

That doesn’t mean it’s too early to start making predictions, though. With filming well underway and the cast constantly being asked about the show in interviews, the clues have already started rolling in. 

Over on the Game of Thrones subreddit, the theory engine is still churning just as strong as ever.

HBO boss says ‘Game of Thrones’ had to push back to make the best show possible

The long winter is here, and by that we mean the agonizing wait between Seasons 7 and 8 of Game of Thrones. After HBO confirmed that Season 8 won’t premiere until 2019, network president Casey Bloys insists that this was a calculated decision – not just a way to draw out the pain of waiting for and losing this show.

“It wasn’t necessarily a delay,” Bloys told TVLine. “It was based on when they felt that they could deliver a show that they are most proud of.”

“They” of course means show runners David Beniof and D.B. Weiss, who must be eyeing an ambitious final season full of battling zombies, dragons, and more. Read more…

The end of ‘Game of Thrones’ earned a standing ovation from the cast

We may not see the ultimate ending of Game of Thrones until 2019, but the actors have now read the script for the series finale, and they’re already beginning to torture us with cryptic clues.

The latest culprit is Sansa Stark herself, Sophie Turner, who described the experience of being at the final table read for the last episode as “bittersweet” in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“At the end of the very last script, they read aloud, ‘End of Game of Thrones.’ As soon as they read that out, pretty much everyone burst into tears,” Turner teased. “There was a standing ovation for [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss]. We were all clapping and cheering. It was amazing.” Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ star says final season won’t premiere until 2019

Jon Snow knows nothing, but Sansa Stark apparently knows plenty — including when the final season of Game of Thrones will air.

Speaking to Variety, Sophie Turner seemed to confirm months of speculation that Game of Thrones won’t launch its eighth and final season next year, but will instead hold the much anticipated series finale until 2019.

“We started in October, so we’re maybe like a tenth of the way through,” Turner joked when asked how filming was progressing on Season 8. “No, no, we’ve got six or seven months left.”  Read more…

This ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 casting just debunked one of our favorite theories

The Golden Company is coming to Game of Thrones in Season 8, and now we know who’s leading it — and who isn’t. 

Cersei ominously namedropped the infamous sellswords in the Season 7 finale while telling Jaime about her evil scheme to defeat Daenerys and Jon — having tricked everyone into thinking Euron Greyjoy had abandoned her and run back to the Iron Islands when in reality, he was jetting off to Essos to hire some mercenaries to beef up the Lannister ranks.

We’ve previously discussed how the Golden Company could end up working in Dany’s favor instead of Cersei’s in the final season, but a new piece of casting news throws a slight wrench into our theory. Read more…

Shoot dates for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 give us a big clue about the premiere

We’re counting the days until Game of Thrones returns for Season 8, but judging by these hints from one of the show’s stars, we’ll be counting a while longer.

Actor Liam Cunningham (who plays the show’s frequent MVP Ser Davos) recently told TV Guide that the final season’s six episodes are “definitely going to be bigger and what I hear is longer … We’re filming right up until the summer.” 

And appearing at a panel for Amazon’s new sci-fi anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, at New York Comic Con, Cunningham gave us an idea of the production schedule for Game of Thrones‘ final season. Read more…

Why Jon Snow is doomed to kill Daenerys on ‘Game of Thrones’

For years now Game of Thrones fans have been theorizing about the “bittersweet” ending that George R. R. Martin promised them. But one fan theory predicts the most perfectly sorrowful — yet satisfying — conclusion to the story, with Jon and Daenerys’ tragic romance at the center of it all.

A recent Reddit essay makes a convincing argument for an interpretation of the the Prince That Was Promised prophecy that could change everything. In line with Game of Thrones‘ history of plot twists, it proposes a finale where Jon and Daenerys don’t actually save the day with a gallant military victory over the White Walkers like we expect.  Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ will shoot many endings for Season 8 because the true enemy is spoilers

Who can be trusted on a Game of Thrones set?

No one. The answer is no one. Not the cast, not the crew, and certainly not the locals.

And so as production of the final season approaches, let it be known that Game of Thrones will shoot many endings, maybe three, maybe five, probably more — upholding a Hollywood tradition of spoiler-proofing a TV narrative outcome with too much riding on it not to.

Melisandre’s cryptic exit could hold a big clue to ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8

Game of Thrones is populated by more than its fair share of shady characters, but there’s no figure quite as enigmatic as the Red Priestess Melisandre, who showed up at Dragonstone in Season 7 for just long enough to engineer a meeting between Daenerys and Jon, before promptly getting the hell out of dodge. 

She told Varys she intended to sail to Volantis, one of the Free Cities of Essos, but promised, much like the Terminator, she’ll be back.

The most mind-blowing White Walker theories from ‘Game of Thrones’

Despite the extensive lore, history, theories, prophecies, books, and shows about the Game of Thrones universe, we know next to nothing about its central antagonists.

Honestly, can you even definitively answer basic questions about the White Walkers? Like: Who are they? What do they want? Why have they returned now? What are their abilities? Who the hell is the Night King?

Some might think the answer is simple: the White Walkers are evil. But that’s the opposite of how creator George R. R. Martin sees this fantasy story. 

“We don’t need any more, ‘Here are the good guys, they’re in white, there are the bad guys, they’re in black. And also, they’re really ugly,” he said in an AssignmentX interview about the usual good vs. evil dichotomy of every other Lord of the Rings knock-off. For Martin, “a villain is a hero of the other side.” Read more…
