    Game of Thrones: Season 8

    Because winter is coming for the last time, and so is the AW discussion.

    NO SPOILERS IN THIS THREAD FOR UNAIRED EPISODES, please.

    Have been debating whether to have a series re-watch over the next few weeks in anticipation of the finale.

    Finished a 4th re-watch several weeks ago, and finished re-reading the books (for the 3rd time) literally three hours ago. Of course, I've been living and breathing this story for the past year and a half or so via tons of reaction videos and other content on Youtube. I'm obsessed.

    There are rumoured titles for the first two episodes around the web. Can we discuss it here? Or the spoiler thread is the place for it?

    You're gonna get spoilers if you discuss it here too. I don't want to be pushy, I just don't want you to get Season 3 spoiled for you when it's probably the third-best season (after 4 and 6). Just go to the random tv thoughts thread.

    Don't worry. I'm not reading the posts. & I won't come to this thread again before finishing season 3.

    What ratings do you expect for the first episode?

    Season premieres:
    1: 2.22
    2: 3.86
    3: 4.37
    4: 6.64
    5: 8.00
    6: 7.94
    7: 10.11

    With the exception of the Season 6 premiere, these were all series records at the time of release. The current record is 12.07 (Season 7 finale). Can we go above 13-14? Is that even possible on HBO?

    5. Theon
    6. Missandei

    24. Daenerys
    25. Jon
    26. Bronn
    27. Dolorous Edd

    29. Euron
    30. The Mountain
    31. Beirc

    Hard to tell. Dish not carrying HBO anymore is most definitely going to lower the ratings, but GOT is so big at this point I still see the premiere being over 10.11+. I just think it could be EVEN BIGGER if HBO and Dish weren't having this sissy fight

    But I wonder if the 2018 break or/and season 7 could have low the expectations towards this last season.

    Holy shit, tonight is the night!



    Serious question: what was the last television event to have this much hype and anticipation around it? The Lost season 2 premiere was pretty huge IIRC, but I don't know if it was this big. The Friends finale maybe?

    And it's nice to see this thread. I've actually avoided almost all pre-season discussion just because I'm trying really hard to remain unspoiled. It's pretty much taken all of my willpower to stop myself from clicking on dangerous links though.

    Loved the episode! Sets the tone well for the rest of the season and a good reintoduction. Some real funny moments as well.

    I gasped at the sam and Jon snow scene

    I’ve stayed away from the spoilers so I didn’t expect the reveal to Jon to happen at this ep.

    That was low key shady of Bran to leave it to Sam to tell Jon. That Bran/Jaime scene!

    Cersei and the elephants is my new ship.

    At least not for the ending. I’m on vacation during the last two episodes and I’m dyinggggg.

    Jon riding Rhaegal, Drogon giving Jon the side eye because he kissed Dany, the Jon and Arya reunion and Sam spilling all the tea, while making so many good points.

    This was a very good first episode.



    Forever my Queen.

    Between Jon realizing he’s been banging his aunt, and Jaime showing up to Winterfell to be greeted by the boy he pushed out a window, there was a lot of “o fuck wat did I do” moments in this.

    What is the episode title?
