Yerrrrrr!! Where my eunucs, Archmaesters, sorcerers, dragon riders, and Children of the Forest at?! Can I get a King in the North? Only if we talkin bout that reanimated Night Commander with a giant white wolf. Can I get hype about an incest love story without being judged? Only if we talkin bout that Jon Snow and Khalessi wildfire flame. Can I get a battle for the future of Westeros and all of humanity? Only if we talkin that 13-time gold metal winning javelin champion named The Night King.
Can we get a premiere date?! Actually, yes, it turns we finally can get a premiere date. April 2019 is the month that HBO execs have finally landed on, and it couldn’t have come soon enough. Get ready to stock up on Game of Thrones inspired beer, wine and liquor because GoT themed premiere parties are coming! October isn’t the only month we can play the part, so begin piecing together those costumes if you want jaws to drop upon entry to said premiere soiree!

If you been about this Westerosi life, you know what it is. We’ve been waiting nearly a decade for winter to come, and now that it’s arrived, we’ve seen some brutal results. Night King Savage snatched up Viserion out the glacial depths and turned him into blue eyes ice dragon. Sansa and Arya got their revenge on Littlefinger is glorious neck slicing fashion. Cersei made Ellaria Sand pay for her murder of Myrcella by dropping the Sonya Blade Kiss of Death on Tyene. That white walker went ballistic in front of the Queen, small council and pretty much everybody, so the Kingdom has officially been put on notice that the army of death is real. And of course, I saved the best for last. One of the final great moments of Season 7 was when Arya rolled up to The Twins and committing familicide on the entire Frey lineage after slitting the old bastard Walder Frey’s neck and poisoning his litter of rodents! Leave one wolf alive and sheep are never safe. The North Remembers.
Are you excited to see our foes join forces to fight the threat to all humanity? Hopeful someone will betray the humans and align with the army of the dead? Do you think everyone should have turned and ran like Euron Greyjoy? Is Dany the real deal Prince(ss) Who Was Promised? Or do you have some wild theory about the Sam or Gentry being Azor Ahai? Either way, you’re guaranteed to see an increase in GoT posts and bound to wind up in a conversation or two over the next 6 months. Don’t hesitate to drop a line on Facebook or holla at us on Twitter and don’t forget that #ForTheThrone is the tag for S8!
