It certainly looks like it's a nice day for a wight wedding in Season 8 of Game of Thrones — well, that is if that horned Night King has anything to do with it. Taking the scenic route from his recruitment drive in Season 5's "Hardhome," the bolstered ranks of the Army of the Dead finally made moves to conquer the realm of men in Season 7. While we have already seen the valiant Viserion come back to life as the blue-eyed servant of the Night King, fans are told to expect some more of our favorite faces to get a zombie remodeling in the show's final season.
Leatherface, Michael, Freddy, Chucky, and Jason — no, this isn't the lineup for a One Direction replacement, it is the cream of the horror crop who have graced our screens for nearly 40 years. However, while all these franchises have had their peaks and troughs, fans now find themselves asking when (and if) these screen icons should rise from the grave once more.
Phew, wipe your brow, because (most of) our favorite Game of Thrones characters have made it through another season of murder, madness, death, and destruction. But come on, let's be honest, a fair few names are surely going to be etched onto that "In Memoriam" plaque by the show's end. I have already looked into the flames and prophesied the deathly dethroning of Sansa Queen of Winterfell, but heading back to the very first season of the show, there is worrying (old) evidence that this really will be the case.
With wintery welcomes and rowing returns, Season 7 of HBO's Game of Thrones has been a veritable who's who of long-awaited meetings of the minds. Gendry Baratheon swung a hammer back into our lives, a love saga slowly unfolded with When Jon Met Dany, and those surviving Stark siblings gathered under the wolf sigil at Winterfell.
Take out your old baby clothes and put up the "It's a boy" (or girl) banners once more, because HBO's Game of Thrones could be heading for some more joyous news among the death and destruction in Westeros. We have already heard the frightful reveal that Jaime and Cersei are preparing to birth another demonic dictator into the realm, but theorists suggest that our latest power couple are also preparing to knit some tiny little chainmail.
As HBO's Game of Thrones draws another season of fire and ice to a close, it is time to look back and reflect on the show's abridged run of penultimate episodes. Lives were lost, new alliances were formed, and enemies came from every nook and cranny of the Seven Kingdoms. However, did sh*t just get a little too real in Westeros?
