Game of Thrones has been a part of our lives since its premiere on April 17, 2011. The show has now entered its eighth and final season and the number of theories and rumors surrounding the plotline are running rampant. The show’s cast has garnered an enormous amount of success over the years, introducing us to new names as well as reacquainting us with some familiar faces.
The show has collected 47 Primetime Emmy Awards as a collective, with Peter Dinklage receiving not only three Primetime Emmy Awards himself, but a Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister. As for season eight, we had to wait a year and eight months between seasons and this final hurrah, leading to a lot of anticipation and that much more speculation. Season eight is expected to be the most highly rated season of the show, and as such, we have put together everything you need to know and expect from this epic final season.
Daenerys’ arrival at Winterfell
The very first episode of the season show’s Daenerys arriving at Winterfell along with Jon Snow and the rest of her unsullied troops. Daenerys was convinced by Jon that the first and most important threat was the army of the dead coming from the Wall.
Her welcome at Winterfell was not as warm as she would have liked it to be, particularly by Jon’s sister (who is not actually his sister as we learned in season seven), Sansa.
