game of thrones beyond the wall 4

Game of Thrones season 7, the sometimes spellbinding and sometimes frustrating penultimate season of the most popular show on television, is over. If the rumors are to be believed, we may not see the final season until 2019, which means we have a long wait ahead of us. And a lot of time to bicker over silly questions like “Which character is currently winning the game of thrones?” Yep, it’s time for our annual Game of Thrones power ranking.

Jacob Hall and Ben Pearson, two of /Film’s resident Game of Thrones aficionados, decided to take this question to heart. Below, we have assembled a list of the major surviving characters (or at least the ones who matter), ranked from “doing quite poorly at the game of thrones” to “probably going to be sitting on the Iron Throne when all is said and done.” This list was devised via techniques mastered by the Maesters of the Citadel – it is completely and scientifically accurate.

Naturally, there are major spoilers throughout this article.

game of thrones season 7 bran

George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire novels are so dense and rich with detail that they’ve inspired hundreds of theories from fans over the years as they’ve scrutinized and re-scrutinized the text in the years between novels. HBO’s television adaptation is no different.

While Game of Thrones has dodged as many fan theories as it has embraced (where art thou, Cleganebowl?), this week’s season finale just quietly dropped something big on our laps. It turns out that one of the wackiest theories of all may be true. Or we’re just being trolled.

Naturally, spoilers for Game of Thrones season 7 begin right now.

Game of Thrones Final Season Release Date

The finale for the shortened seventh season of Game of Thrones only just aired this past Sunday, but rabid fans are already wondering how long they’ll have to wait until the final season begins. Unfortunately, we might be looking at the longest gap yet between seasons.

Reportedly HBO is looking to begin production on the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones sometime in October. But despite the fact that this final season is supposed to last only six episodes, apparently shooting could run as late as August 2018, which means the series likely won’t be able to start airing new episodes until 2019. That means fans will have to wait at least 16 months for the final season to begin. Read More »
