All I gotta say is, it better be GOOD.

Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones



     While Game of thrones star Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) found the Series Finale really satisfying to read through, she told IGN that she thinks the finale might divide fans.

     "A lot of tears. I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying -- I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines -- to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us," Turner said. "Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans. I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon, I think. I think it will be really interesting to see people’s reactions, but for me reading the script it was just like heartbreaking to read at the very final page of the script it just says, ‘End of Game of Thrones’. That was really emotional."

     She also revealed a little bit of info about her character's arc for the final season, "She kind of takes ownership over who she is and what she stands for. Over the course of the series she’s been completely unaware of what she wants, where she wants to be, who she really is, and at the end of this season, I feel she is the most self-assured character in the show."

     All of this info, of course, makes me super anxious for Season 8. We've been in this since 2011. By the time the final season airs, we will have been invested for *8 YEARS*. Plllleaaaaaase let this not be like LOST, where it was awesome and compelling almost every episode UNTIL THE VERY LAST ONE WHICH RUINED EVERYTHING (Castle Rock too, for that matter, but that was only a 10-episode series, thankfully. I love him, seriously, but luckily, J.J. Abrams has nothing to do with Game of Thrones.)

     Actually, I don't care how bad/good it is, I just want to watch it already! Sadly, we have at least 7 months more to wait, possibly more. The final season of Game of Thrones airs sometime in mid-2019.
