Game Of Thrones On Saturday Night Live Emilia Clarke Night King And Others Crash Kit Harington's Monologue

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.

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.

"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.
