HBO releases photos from the series finale of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has been having a wild run this season, with so much happening in such a short time that the fandom has been having a tough time catching up. In Season 8, episode 5, “The Bells“, we saw Daenerys Targaryen finally snap, as she took on Cersei and King’s Landing. Now, HBO has released pictures from the final episode of the show. Read on!

These sets usually have at least half a dozen to a dozen pictures, but this time it looks like Game of Thrones doesn’t want to reveal much more than what it did in the preview trailer of the episode. There are only two pictures in the set, showing Daenerys Targaryen, in her new reign as the Mad Queen, and Tyrion Lannister, carrying his worries about the former. Check them out:

Well, it’s the end of an era. While the show might not have been as well received as expected, it’s a finale that we have waited for, for an entire decade. We will find out what happens to Westeros in the aftermath of the Mad Queen when the episode drops Sunday, 19th May.

Game Of Thrones finally aired the 6th episode of Season 8 and with it the show has finally come to an end. The series finale started off immediately where the previous episode ended. It showed us the aftermath of Daenerys’ sack of King’s Landing. Before we move ahead, it’s important to let you know that this article contains SPOILERS from the latest episode. So please turn back if you don’t want to see any spoilers.

The episode started with a shocked Tyrion, Jon Snow and Davos walking through King’s Landing and seeing the destruction that was caused by Daenerys Targaryen. She didn’t spare anyone and we saw that the Unsullied were still unsatisfied and they continued executing Lannister soldiers in the latest episode. In the span of one episode, Daenerys and her army turned from heroes to villains.

Daenerys finally conquered King’s Landing and had a big Targaryen sigil banner hanging prominently on a wall and it reminded me of the time when Daenerys captured Meereen and her soldiers did the same at the top of the Great Pyramid.

Jon and Grey Worm had an argument and for a moment it felt as if there would be a fight between the Unsullied and Stark soldiers.

Tyrion decided that he could no longer serve Daenerys and threw away the Hand of the Queen pin and he was immediately arrested.

Noble houses from all over Westeros had arrived for the trial and it was nice to see all members of House Stark present in King’s Landing.

Edmure Tully tried to nominate himself as the King of Westeros and was immediately asked to sit down by Sansa.

For killing Daenerys Targaryen, Jon was sent to the Night’s Watch.

Kit Harington gets emotional in Game of Thrones: The Last Watch Documentary Trailer

We had previously reported that a full-length documentary about the making of Game of Throne’s magnificent last season is in the making. And now the trailer for it is also here. Game of Thrones: The Last Watch will be aired on HBO at 9 pm (US) on 26th May, exactly a week after the Season 8 finale.

Watch the trailer here:

The almost two-hour documentary has been directed by veteran documentary filmmaker Jeanie Finlay and has been made with an unprecedented level of access. The trailer gives us a peek into the table read for the final season with the entire cast, in-depth interviews with the cast and crew, and a hint of the technical depths and logistic heights that the wildly ambitious scale of the eight and final season of Game of Thrones demanded.

With just one episode to go before Game of Thrones ends forever, The Last Watch should give the fans a little something to wait for beyond 19th May.

Would you be watching the documentary? Tell us in the comments!

Game Of Thrones showrunners talk about the latest Game Of Thrones episode “The Bells”

'Inside the Episode' The Bells

Spoiler alert. As is tradition, HBO has released an ‘Inside the Episode’ feature of the latest episode, The Bells. For those of you who missed it, the episode was an absolute bloodbath. Daenerys all but signed her death certificate when she razed King’s Landing and the thousands of innocents in it to the ground. Once a beacon of hope and somewhat of a messiah, one wonders what brought about such a massive swing in her behaviour. In this feature, the showrunners tackle this question and several more regarding the other important scenes from The Bells.

To sum things up:

Daenerys isn’t just the Mother of Dragons anymore, but also the mother of awful decisions. Showrunner David Benioff points out that Dany has finally reached her tipping point which is why she did what she did. In that, she annihilated King’s Landing. Most of her closest advisors have either died or they don’t think she’s all that great anymore and have switched teams. Combine that with the fact that Jon doesn’t really want to get down and dirty with her anymore. She’s all alone and that’s probably what got to her.

Dan Weiss touches upon how ‘The Bells’ had a lot of scenes that were shot from the perspective of the people down on the ground facing Dany’s wrath, instead of through her eyes.

“In most large stories like this, it seems like there’s a tendency to focus on the heroic figures and not pay much attention to the people who may be suffering the repercussions of the decisions made by those heroic people. We really wanted to keep our perspective and our sympathies on the ground at this moment ’cause those are the people who are really paying the price for the decisions that she’s making,” says Weiss.

Speaking about Jon, Weiss says that he is “in a kind of denial”, as shocked by Dany’s rampage (if not more) as the audience.

Amidst all the death and destruction, the episode did manage to give us a moment at the hands of the two people you’d least expect it to come from; Arya and the Hound. Once they get to the Red Keep which is slowly starting to crumble, the Hound tries to talk Arya out of going any further because death is guaranteed down that path.

“The Hound has genuinely come to have affection for Arya. I think he loves her as much as he’s capable of loving someone,” says Benioff.

Watch the video below:

This was definitely one of the most jarring episodes of the series in a long time. What did you think of it?
