Final season of GoT set for over one billion viewers

Emilia Clarke forgets which season Daenerys and Jon Snow hooked up in on ‘Game of Thrones’ during surprise ‘Saturday Night Live’ appearance

Emilia Clarke forgets which season Daenerys and Jon Snow hooked up in on ‘Game of Thrones’ during surprise ‘Saturday Night Live’ appearance

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have created a Game of Thrones playlist on Spotify for the final season of the show, and apparently it contains a hint about how the show's big finale goes down.

HBO is on the full nostalgia offense, releasing a slew of lengthy featurettes showing behind-the-scenes footage of the early episodes of Game of Thrones intercut with interviews of the cast reflecting on their time on the show.

And it's more than just songs to listen to if you're in a Game of Thrones mood.

Assawin said the fire was believed to have started in a document storage room in one of the buildings that is part of the complex. The blaze at Central World broke out at around 6 pm, a spokesperson for the Erawan Medical Emergency centre told reporters.

Kit's co-star, Emilia Clarke, the Mother of Dragons, John Bradley, known as Samwell Tarly in the hit show, and Kit's wife, Rose Leslie asked Kit questions about the final season of Game of Thrones that is set to make its debut this Sunday, 14 April. "At the same time, we feel an enormous responsibility to commemorate what is arguably one of the greatest TV shows ever made, that has cemented its place in popular culture". "I know it's an end, but it's not much of an end for me", he admits. "It matters a lot to us", said Weiss. The relevance of "Burn the Fleet" by Thrice (Viserion, we bet you think this song is about you), "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes (ahem, seven kingdoms), "Love Is Blindness" by U2 (Dany and Jon?) and "Killer Wolf" by Danzig (hey, Ghost) is pretty obvious, but there are some that are a little less on the nose. "We also know that no matter what we do, even if it's the optimal version, that a certain number of people will hate the best of all possible versions". But there have been issues that have happened in post-production, or a week before an episode airs.

Lena Headey plays Cersei Lannister.

"I plan to be very drunk and very far from the internet", added Benioff.
