Game of Thrones, the epic drama that has panned out over seven seasons is finally in its last leg. At least, the show version of it. We still have no update on what the heck is George RR Martin up to with the books, y'all!

But as it is the last season — thanks Emilia for reminding us of it again with that tear-jerking emo Insta farewell post. *sobs quietly * — we are too excited about the end game. Who gets the Iron Throne and what does the end of the great war look like? What are Jon and Dany gonna do? By the end of it all, who is going to make it out alive? We have so many questions, but no answers and this feeling sucks big time.

Since April 2019 is too damn far away, we sit like hawks with our eyes set out for any possible leaks and spoilers. And we found a solid one.

As many of you know, the eighth season of GoT will have only six freaking-long-drama-packed episodes And now, we have laid eyes on the deets about the season premiere. Redditor NextTimeDoBetter (our fave human, RN), posted the info about the first episode of GoT S8. 

Oh yeah, oh yeah!

It's the editing room sheet that has details of who all are in the episode and at what time. You're welcome.

Now, what does all of it mean? Umm, allow us to explain.

  • First off, the episode is over 70 minutes.
  • After the season seven recap and credits, we see 'old mel' at Winterfell. Our guess is Old Mel is the Melisandre without her ageless look that she carries. And 'Arya Stark of Winterfell sees Mel in her skin. Wut? :O
She be back, you guys

  • The free folk are at Castle Black. Okay!
  • Sansa and Arya have an intense convo at Winterfell.
  • Qyburn is legit up to something with revamped Mountain, and Cersei is part of it, too.
  • Jon and Dany are at White Harbour and then at Winterfell.

  • There's Harry there. Which Harry? Who's Harry? Oh Harry Stickland (Mark Rissmann), the leader of the mercenary group Golden Company. Remember Cersei had sent off Euron to get him?
  • Arya has a lot of reunions this season – with Jon, The Hound and Gendry.
  • Jon and Sam also reunite. Will Sam tell Jon about his parentage?
  • Rhaegar sees Jon? *jaws not found* Baby Jon? Or Old Jon? What's going on?
  • Bran and Jon also meet, you guys. #Aww
  • Wait a sec, Arya, Sansa and Daenerys are in the same room. WHOA! This is yuge!
  • Okay, Jaime has finally reached Winterfell. Dude's a changed man. And now we have to see how he makes use of his Valryian Steel. :D
  • The episode ends with Bran and Sam in talks. This doesn't look good.

Okay, *shallow breathing *, Okay!

BTW, there are also dragons flying over Winterfell. By dragons we sure hope they mean Drogon and Rhaegal. Cuz, now that Viserion has turned, we don't want him anywhere near the living. 

We will see dragons, yay!
