"It's relentless", Kit Harrington (aka Jon Snow) acknowledged to EW.

Daenerys Targaryen actress Emilia Clarke was out with a friend when she received the scripts, and immediately had to cancel her plans. This final season has been no walk in the park apparently.

Finally, fans have been given a tiny bit of detail from about the upcoming Game of Thrones season, thanks to Entertainment Weekly. "This read 'End of Game of Thrones'".

But how will the Starks take to Jon's new girlfriend and ally? The first to hit: a stunning photo of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. If you can believe it, Jon and Arya (Maisie Williams) haven't seen each other since the pilot episode, and they seemed to be the closest of the Stark siblings. Co-executive producer Bryan Cogman was kind enough to share a little more insight about season 8 with Entertainment Weekly, thankfully.

Characters acting in the face of "certain death", "incredibly emotional", "haunting", "bittersweet"...it's going to be an interesting six episodes.

Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope have impressed the most, having logged a century each while underlining their abilities. The visitors, on the other hand, have blown hot and cold in the one-dayers after being routed in the Tests.

Part of this includes a huge battle with the White Walkers. The piece also gently corrects some previous reporting stemming from last April, when someone on the show's crew revealed that they'd just wrapped 55 straight nights of shooting a battle sequence.

David Benioff spoke about the episode, explaining how the battle could have been boring, but Miguel managed to make it an epic fans won't want to miss.

He goes on to say that "the drama builds to a confrontation with the Army of the Dead that's expected to be the most sustained action sequence ever made for television or film", of which Benioff said, "We've been building toward this since the very beginning, it's the living against the dead, and you can't do that in a 12-minute sequence".

Still no set air date for the final season, but we'd put some good money on it showing up around the spring of next year. So while it makes sense that the characters are keeping warm in one another's arms in this first-look snap, given the passionate relationship they recently struck up, there's a lot more to their embrace than meets the eye. You'll remember this is nearly exactly how Season 1 opened, but it was Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) marching to meet Ned Stark (Sean Bean) way back when.
