Game of Thrones

It’s been a long, long wait for fans since Game of Thrones season seven came to a close over a year ago now. And while that wait will continue into 2019, as we learned in July, all we knew as of then was that it would be sometime in the first half of the year.

Now we have something to finally focus in on. HBO has announced that Game of Thrones season eight will arrive in April of 2019. The perfect time to kick off the show’s final season, considering that all but two of the seven seasons premiered in April. And one of those two began just one day before April.

HBO made the announcement with a video, which you can check out below.

Jerome Flynn as Bronn on Game of Thrones

We’ve known since the penultimate season of Game of Thrones came to a close at the end of August there was a chance that there would be no new episodes for the entirety of 2018, and that we might have to wait until 2019 for the final season to arrive at our eyes.

Now HBO has confirmed it: Game of Thrones season eight will be arriving in 2019. They’ve also confirmed how many episodes fans can look forward to seeing when the final season does arrive, and who’s writing and directing those final episodes. You can read HBO’s announcement below.

HBO
Air Date: April 28, 2013

While we often think of fire as a heat source or a weapon, more often than not, fire illuminates our path and helps shows us what’s true. After weeks of epic television, Game of Thrones‘ fifth episode, “Kissed by Fire,” allows most of characters to look at the paths they’ve chosen before deciding (or having someone choose for them) their new fate.

Jamie’s life has certainly turned out much different than I believe he originally intended. In the episode’s strongest scene, Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) explains to Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) the ‘secret origin’ of the Kingslayer name, detailing the mad king’s obsession with wildfire and how he planned to burn the city down, men, women, and children all. So, Jamie took matters into his own hands. This is battered and beaten Jamie Lannister, far different from the attempted child-killer we saw in the first season. We know that version of Jamie still lurks below, but the journey and evolution of the character is very different now than before.

Game of Thrones 2x03 Review

Game of Thrones
Season Two, Episode 3 – What Is Dead May Never Die
Directed by: Alik Sakharov
Written by: Bryan Cogman
Starring: Mark Addy, Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Liam Cunningham, Charles Dance, Stephen Dillane, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Aidan Gillen, Jack Gleeson, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Conleth Hill, Carice van Houten, Harry Lloyd, Richard Madden, Patrick Malahide, Rory McCann, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, and Issac Hempstead-Wright

Part of the episodic structure of Game of Thrones, for good or for bad, is that the show is a direct one-to-one adaptation of the book series. Having not read the books, I don’t know how faithful the adaptation is, but George R. R. Martin’s structure doesn’t often lend itself to having individual episode themes; instead, the show looks to playing out the larger themes of the series over the course of the season.

This isn’t a bad way of storytelling, in fact, it’s one that Game of Thrones has very well mastered.

Power and who wields this power has been a topic of much discussion for many of our characters this season and this week’s episode, “What Is Dead May Never Die,” continues this concept, but also plays with the assumption and illusion of who really, truly has power.
