The show is history but the characters are still afresh in the viewers’ minds. The last season of Game of Thrones is not only emotionally heartbreaking for the audience, but for the cast members too. There were so many twists and unexpected endings that it felt incomplete. The script was par what we desired. However, one of the crew members to whom the ending meant relief was Kit Harington. The actor plays the character of Jon Snow in all the 8 seasons. He believes that his character belongs to the North and that the throne was never truly his. Thus heading back from the South did give the character a closure.

In an interview, Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, Jon’s love interest, discloses the actor’s reaction to reading the script. Daenerys dies at the hands of her lover, which was a shock to both Kit and the audience. The last season of the show left fans miserable after the poorly written script. So much so that the makers were being asked to remake the entire season, with an alternate ending.
Game of Thrones season 8 went on air in 2019. The previous seasons of the show are immensely loved and acclaimed. However, the crew justifies the ending season. It was hard for them to film certain episodes that would take weeks to get all the angles of the scene right. Thus, it is having some of the hardest filming scenes throughout the series. Even though it doesn’t seem like it, the ending made the actors cry. Some part of it was the ending of the show, while other was the shocking end they all were about to witness.
The run of the show shows speaks through its success. One of the all-time favorites Netflix series, the show stars Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Maisie Williams, and Liam Cunningham among others. Its reception is massive not only in the western world but throughout the globe. The show’s ending season opens with positive responses that came down to negative after the 2nd episode. However, the past is in the past, and so is the winter.
