Game of Thrones is returning for the last time in 2019. You know, sometime in 2019. The HBO mainstay skipped Comic-Con in San Diego this year, and so concrete details about the series eighth and final season remain sparse.
Even the actual date it will return to air isn’t known just yet, but the stars of the show are starting to give post-filming interviews and small details are leaking out that should get Thrones fans excited about the series’ final episodes.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the show, hasn’t said anything in particular about what happens but has offered some broad strokes that seem promising. Turner had said in an earlier interview that she feels fans will be “satisfied” by the ending, and her friend and co-star Maisie Williams, who plays sister Arya Stark on the show, has hinted she might be the last woman standing once the series wraps.
“This season is bloodier than ever,” she confesses. “It’s full of betrayal, full of war, full of danger. That’s all I can say without giving too much away.”
Actually gleaning what that means for show favorites is tough to say, especially when you don’t know who anyone really trusts anymore. But Turner told the magazine all the fan theories that come with the secrecy is fun. A tattoo she got commemorating the end of the show caused a stir of its own, but Turner said it was fun to read through what everyone thought it meant.
“It doesn’t get frustrating; I mean it’s entertaining. It does happen,” she says. “I remember when I dyed my hair blonde, and everyone thought Sansa was a Targaryen. Everyone reads very much into what we do in our personal lives. Obviously, you know [my] tattoo is related to the show. It’s just a quote from last season. I think the die-hard fans know that but we like the speculation. It keeps it interesting!”
So we still don’t know much about the show’s final season, but we do know at least one line now. Getting there.
