Winter is coming, and it may just blow your freakin’ mind.
In a recent interview with the Hindustan Times, “Game of Thrones” star Nathalie Emmanuel — who plays Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke’s) trusted adviser, Missandei, on the HBO fantasy series — discussed what’s to come when the show’s final six episodes hit next year. And, of course, it’s a lot.
“I think what we can expect from the final season of ‘GoT’ is just a real push,” Emmanuel told the outlet. “Like in the last couple of seasons, we have seen the pace of the show increase with the stakes getting higher and higher. There are so many storylines that have to come to conclusion. We have to play them out, so the pace of the show is continuing on that sense.”
“There are so many characters and stories that haven’t found their conclusion. So, this season is going to be incredibly satisfying for people. It is going to be incredibly exciting and heartbreaking. I feel like people will have their mind blown when they watch the final one.”
Luckily, you have some time until your head explodes, as the cast has finished production, but the final batch of episodes aren’t coming until the first half of 2019.
“Game of Thrones” eighth and final season will air in the first half of 2019 on HBO.

Review the baddies who went down in flames and the heroes who died epically this year
Television characters are a dime a dozen, but sometimes when we lose one it can pack a pretty hefty punch. Especially if they go out in a totally epic way. In 2017, we watched more than a few good men and women kick the bucket on TV (though a couple we were honestly glad to be rid of). Here are the ones who went out as total badasses — or maybe were killed by a total badass. Beware of spoilers!
