All roads have led to this, folks.
We’ve watched Winterfell burn and gazed in horrified disbelief as a dragon fell from the sky, but tomorrow, all eyes turn towards King’s Landing, where Cersei Lannister is set to square off against the greatest army Westeros has ever seen. At least, they were… before the Night King and his undead army ravaged the Dothraki and left the Stark foot soldiers begging for their lives. The Night’s Watch are also done (save for Sam and Jon), while Greyworm now leads a depleted force of Unsullied warriors.
Suffice it to say, the past few weeks have been pretty rough for our favorite heroes on Game of Thrones, and things are only going to get worse before they get better. In fact, if you ask Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the hit series, fans are going to feel the worst pain possible during next week’s sure to be epic finale.
While appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the actress was asked to show the host on his pain scale how much pain the audience will feel during the series’ last episode. Sure enough, she pointed to the spot marked “worst pain possible,” though she refrained from saying just what exactly will cause us to feel so devastated.
Given the nature of the show, though, it’s not hard to imagine a few heartbreaking deaths, and maybe even some brutal betrayals occurring in its final hour. Whatever it is that HBO has planned for us, one thing we can be sure of is that Game of Thrones is now fast approaching its last hurrah, and by all accounts, it looks set to go out with an explosive finale.
So batten down the hatches and get ready to say goodbye to those characters you hold near and dear; as this particular series has proven time and time again, no one is safe. After all, when you play the Game of Thrones, you win, or you die…
