Game Of Thrones Season 8 Check Out Predictions
Game of Thrones season 8 is expected to begin Shooting in October, but HBO says the timeline has yet to be drawn up. Winter has finally come to Westeros—and will make shooting on location even harder.
As if a week between episodes wasn’t hard enough, fans are truly in for a long wait until the final season. According to the Hollywood Reporter, season 8’s release could take until 2019.
Filming in different continents and special effects are the considerations in estimating when the final season will be available, said HBO programming president Casey Bloys said to the news outlet.
As we head back into the Game of Thrones offseason, there’s nothing left to do except speculate on the fates in store for some of our favorite characters. With that in mind, here are seven predictions about the final run of Game of Thrones we’re comfortable making just a few days removed from the season seven finale.
Check Out Predictions
Winterfell Will Fall
The Wall is ruined. The White Walkers are in Westeros, with an undead dragon on their side. With their collective eye firmly on destroying mankind, the Army of the Dead are positioned to wreak untold amounts of havoc upon the Seven Kingdoms, starting with the closest high-value target, Winterfell.
Littlefinger Will Rise
chaotic climber died in the season seven finale but is that really the end of the road for Aidan Gillen’s work on the show?
Not by a long shot. Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) possesses the ability to wear the faces of the people she’s killed, and the motive to apply that treatment to the recently deceased Lord Baelish.
the prophecy of the “valonqar,” which states that Cersei will be killed by the “younger sibling.” Most people think the prophecy refers to Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) or Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), but why can’t it apply to the youngest Stark sister — especially if she’s wearing the face of an enemy?
Bran Stark Will Fly
Never forget the Three-Eyed Raven’s promise to Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) at the end of season four: “You will never walk again … but you will fly.” Good thing there’s a very clean opportunity for Bran to fly in the final season: warging into the rotting body of the undead Viserion, and hijacking the dragon away from the vicious Night King.
The Night King Will Die
Feels like an easy prediction to make, right? Game of Thrones is a story steeped in brutality, but it’s not so brutal that it will end with a White Walker win. The scenario writes itself: Bran steals Viserion back from the Night King, forcing the enemy to fight on the ground in single combat against Jon Snow (Kit Harington). We’ve seen the King in the North kill two White Walkers now. How hard can it be to kill a third?
Jon Snow Will Also Die
He died once before, and he’s going to die again: Jon Snow simply cannot walk away from Game of Thrones with his life intact.
Jon Snow Will Live!
Jon’s second death and second revival would only further serve the predestined narrative around the young man secretly known as Aegon Targaryen — you know, right before he dies for good.
