Here’s a hint: it will be a throwback.

As you may recall from the pilot, King Robert Baratheon and his crew enter Winterfell. Only this time, Daenerys and her crew enter Winterfell.

This means that some of the show’s biggest characters will be together — some for the first time, and some will be reunited for the first time in a while.

Co-executive producer, Bryan Cogman, told Entertainment Weekly,

"“It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death. It’s an incredibly emotional, haunting, bittersweet final season, and I think it honors very much what George set out to do — which is flipping this kind of story on its head.”"

At the end of last season, the Wall came-a-crumbling down after Ice Dragon Viserion set it on fire. So, that means the Night King and his army of the undead are coming straight for Winterfell. It also means we are about to witness the most epic battle ever made for television.

The battle scenes took at least 55 days to film just the outside scenes. And it was directed by none other than Miguel Sapochnik, the same bloke who directed the famous “Battle of the Bastards” episode.

“It makes the ‘Battle of the Bastards’ look like a theme park,” said Peter Dinklage.

I don’t know about you, but I just got even more excited for what’s to come. Only thing is, we don’t know exactly when it will come. A premiere date for the final Game of Thrones season hasn’t been announced yet.

But most expect it to be in the first half of 2019. So, let’s keep our fingers crossed that that’s still the case.
