With just one season and a scant six episodes remaining in the already legendary run of HBO’s Game of Thrones, many fans have been left with mixed emotions. While most are excited at the prospect of seeing the narrative of A Song of Ice and Fire reach its conclusion, others are greatly saddened at the prospect of leaving Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and Tyrion Lannister behind forever. Of course, there are also those who are concerned that six episodes won’t be enough to wrap up this epic saga in a satisfactory fashion.
The lead-up to Game of Thrones Season 8 - which begins airing on April 14, 2019 - makes for the perfect opportunity to refresh yourself on the prior events of the series, including those that occurred in the series’ penultimate season. While Season 7 of GoT featured plenty of epic moments and the conclusion of several characters’ storylines, it mostly served as a set-up for the grand finale - but now all the pieces are on the board for one final confrontation.
