Test previous to the final season of Game of Thrones: The final hours of the Queen

After greater than a 12 months and a half of ready, Game of Thrones begins its last season this Sunday. And is now, within the last moments of the sequence, once we mix extra uncertainty – it’s the season extra secret, with fewer leaks and no books to fall again on – with extra certainty: is the conclusion not solely of a sequence, however an occasion that has marked a earlier than and an after within the historical past of standard tradition. We’re going with this.

Game of Thrones is simply. And what is going on to occur this final season? It appears that what we all know however in actuality the general public doesn’t know virtually nothing. It appears evident, by sheer geography, that the Army of the Dead will Invernalia, and shall battle in opposition to Jon, Dany and our heroes. We assume that a number of – or many – characters will die. And somebody will sit the Throne on the finish, if there’s one And in the meantime? And what about after?

Recall that the pill has been lightened. Since there are not any Baratheons, Tyrells or Martells; and the Tully and Arryn have been seemingly forgotten. Have additionally disappeared distractions unique: we don’t anticipate to see any extra of Are besides a Company in Golden that comes from there. Also, with the Wall fallen, nothing Beyond besides the Walkers White which can be already on Our Side.

But the plot is extra complicated than a easy battle. Jon, or slightly Aegon Targaryen is the rightful sovereign of the West, earlier than his aunt and lover Daenerys, below the legal guidelines of succession Targaryen. Cersei Lannister doesn’t appear to have any curiosity in preventing in opposition to the Other. And there are extra attention-grabbing components, from Tyrion to Euron passing by Varys and Melisandre, which might complicate the story.

The eighth season is that The Battle for the Dawn. There are 6 chapters, of which 4 (the third and sixth) will last 80 minutes, greater than some standard movie. This is a Game of Thrones: there shall be politics, betrayals, characters in battle, and questions on what’s the proper factor.


The eighth season has been characterised by being essentially the most secret. It is even professional to ask, seeing the secrecy, shielded from the units and the measures taken in opposition to those that unfold spoilers, if earlier, HBO is just not favored of those leaks and the tolerated. Because, actually, we face a change of paradigm.

We should not have simply data of the taking pictures of the final chapters of the seasonalthough Apple Maps, in a glaring error of the HBO, has hints of this. It was filmed throughout three months an ideal battle on the set of Invernalia, however we have simply had photos of it. It is one thing unparalleled within the historical past of the sequence.

The recording of the final season started in October of 2017, however has finished in July of 2018. Numerous actors with out precedent went to Seville in the month of April to shoot the last month of may. In The Seven Kingdoms we’ve instructed a number of spoilers (on the set of Invernalia, on what is filmed in Croatia, on a great battle, on the shot in the new set of Belfast…), however nothing completely important.

And in fact, since there are not any books to fall again on. The entry within the Wikia of The Wedding Red carrying years out there for individuals who wish to examine it earlier than it appeared in Game of Thrones. Now the paradigm is completely different.

The finish is about. Within 6 weeks and three days all of us will know who sits on the Iron Throne – if in the long run there’s a Throne – and who of our protagonists, who appeared on display screen for the primary time eight years in the past, lives or dies.

The necessary nuance is that these characters had been born in tv in 2011, however 1000’s of spectators started to know them in a ebook first revealed in 1996, 15 years earlier than the premiere of the sequence of the HBO. And going to know what occurs with them earlier than on television than in novels.

And it’s clear that if, as we’ve insisted, the end of the series will be significant differences between series and books, shall be key components in widespread. For instance, if Daenerys had been to die within the sequence we don’t assume that to outlive within the books. If Jon simply King of Westeros in Game of Thrones we’re certain that might sit on the Throne in a Song of ice and hearth. Or if the Other finish with all of humanity – no, that’s not going to happen – within the manufacturing of the HBO we might have little doubt that we might learn the identical factor in Dream of Spring.

The destiny of the foremost protagonists of the story, the factors of view which have accompanied us because the novel a Game of Thrones – Jon, Dany, Tyrion, Bran, Arya, Sansa – it appears not possible that differs in sequence and books. Jaime and Cersei we shed extra doubts. And from there, a myriad of secondary characters, some extra expensive than these actors themselves, are and would be the object of a number of debates.


Much of the work of showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss appear to dreamed of, I need to say that confronted with a problem that will appear unenviable. Not solely do they face the judgment of tens of millions of readers of Martin that look, typically arching an eyebrow, the tv sequence. What is essential is that you’ll be charged earlier than a a lot bigger viewers, tens of tens of millions of individuals, if the top of the story could be on the top of what promised.

There is a sequence like Game of Thrones for a lot of causes. At the technical stage is the most effective that has been completed:the costumes, make-up, music, particular results, areas…That has beaten the record of Emmys, when there’s nonetheless a season -sweeping – to be issued is proof of this.

In addition, Game of Thrones is a singular manufacturing within the historical past of tv. Arrived on the time and the time indicated. It is ideal for recording podcasts and analyzing, overlaying the principle theme in Youtube, add a Story to Instagram with a t-shirt of the sequence, debate by means of Twitter, ship a meme Walkers White for Whatsapp and share the most recent trailer for Facebook.


Theorising from residence is straightforward, however the manufacturing of a sequence like Game of Thrones, with a finances near 100 million {dollars} to report simply six chapters, it’s tremendously complicated. Game of Thrones won’t ever be The Wire or The Sopranos (particularly since Benioff and Weiss exceeded quickly to the books), however has the problem of creating your finish to be in comparison with one other’s work as excellent as Breaking Bad: in recognition there’s nothing like The Thrones; in narrative, it’s debatable.

Benioff and Weiss have the benefit when elevating this conclusion. Mainly, that they take time getting ready it. Very attention-grabbing, had a large part of the final thought even before George R. R. Martin will reveal the end of their plots within the novels. They themselves have defined that they have built previous seasons thinking of the latest.

With solely six chapters, of narrative construction we’ll lose a number of of these chapters of transition that each have shone within the historical past of Game of Thrones. Yes, what we see shall be spectacular. We’re going to have large battles (the well-known Miguel Sapochnik directed the chapters three and 5) and the particular results will depart its mark. I hope we’ve a brand new Light of the Seven: we all know that Ramin Djawadi is a genius.


Finally, and we cannot neglect, Spain is within the coronary heart of Game of Thrones. It is a satisfaction to announce that a number of the most last moments of the preferred sequence on the planet and that the extra affect it has triggered has been filmed within the nation of lots of those that learn this.

The complete of the amphitheatre of Italica is again Well Dragon, in Landing of the King: Seville lived again the biggest gathering of actors from the series. And though Game of Thrones is completed its first spin-off will return to Spain, specifically the Canary Islands, recording its pilot in a couple of months.

It appears unbelievable, however the Queen of the sequence resides its final hours. Here in The Seven Kingdoms the we’ll stay with extra depth than ever: all of us, after so a few years, we deserve it. Thank you for being leyéndonos.
