So it’s all come down to this….
After seven years of sex, violence, betrayal, heartbreak and the odd bit of incest, HBO’s multi-award winning fantasy epic Game of Thrones is set for a bittersweet ending.
The big question on everyone’s minds is about who will survive the show’s final series which has been shortened to just six episodes. Despite this, each episode is set to be over an hour long and promises plenty of thrills and shocks along the way.

The concluding series is set to follow on from the dramatic events of the Series 7 finale which saw the Night King and his White Walker army begin their invasion of Westeros while the ‘King of the North’ Jon Snow and his auntie Daenerys Targaryen embarked on a passionate affair unaware of Jon’s real heritage.
Details of the plot for have been kept hidden by HBO and the cast though the trailer’s footage indicates that Jon, Dany and co. will be bracing themselves for battle early doors. There is also the potential threat of Queen Cersei Lannister who is looking to strengthen her grip on the Iron Throne.
