  • Published: 12 April 2019
  • Game of Thrones Season 8 starts SUNDAY! Before you watch the new season, here's your FULL SERIES RECAP, covering all the important points from Season 1 to Season 7, all the major characters you have to remember, and a refresher on all the big theories to keep an eye out for headed into the Season Premiere. We also make some minor predictions for what the biggest hype-st scenes are going to be, based on the Season 8 trailer. All that and more in this #GameofThrones #FullRecap

    Just a reminder, though we've had plenty of deaths, all these major characters are still in play: Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Jamie Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, Theon Greyjoy, the Night King, Bran Stark, the whole White Walker army, the Unsullied, the Dothraki, the Golden Company, Euron Greyjoy, Yara Greyjoy, Yada Yada Greyjoy, a ton of people.

    It's all happening and hopefully with this catch up guide you'll be ready for Season 8. Watch the premiere and then tune in to Westeros Weekly on Monday to see Filup Molina and Erik Voss answer YOUR questions that you submitted via Twitter, using the hashtag ”westerosweekly.”

I think they will just use the prince that was promised (which is jon snow) and he will just slay the night king with Longclaw.
