Well, Game of Thrones has finally come to an end. With the Season 8 finale episode, the show wrapped up most of the outstanding plotlines, including how the rest of the world reacted to Daenerys's destruction of King's Landing, and what ultimately happened to the Starks. We finally know who will sit the Iron Throne, whether they've broken the wheel, and what will become of the Seven Kingdoms. For the most part.
There's a whole lot to digest about the last episode, to say nothing of the rest of Season 8. Lucy, Ryan, Tamoor, and Dave are back to break everything down one last time in the video above. From the aftermath of the destruction of King's Landing to the often-emotional endings for each of the characters, we look at where the show has been and how it has finally come to its conclusion. It has been a long road, and things are certainly bittersweet, as promised, in the finale.
HBO isn't entirely done with Game of Thrones, of course. This Sunday will bring a two-hour documentary called The Last Watch that goes behind the scenes to show how the final season was made. And beyond that, it has extensive plans for Game of Thrones spin-off shows. Five were in consideration at one point, and while one apparently won't be moving ahead, at least one of them is headed toward a pilot. That show is set thousands of years before the show, however, so don't expect to see it providing any direct insight into the characters we already know and love.
We've got plenty more Game of Thrones finale coverage as well, like an explanation of what happened in the end and a look at a familiar face who appeared at the Large Council meeting who you might not have recognized. We also have a theory that Season 8 would make a lot more sense if Bran Stark was evil--and one about how the ending might shake out differently in the books.
