Winter has finally come to Westeros, so it is not surprising that the final seasons of HBO's "Game of Thrones" could be "bleak."
The adjective may apply to more than just the weather, though; Kit Harington revealed in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he expects the last two seasons to be pretty dismal before we reach any kind of ending -- happy or otherwise.
While Harington, who plays fan favorite Jon Snow, admitted that he hasn't seen any scripts yet, he has his theories about how the final two seasons of the HBO drama will play out. He hasn't ruled out some kind of happy ending, but he thinks there will be a whole lot of unpleasantness first.
"I think it's going to get very bleak before," he told THR. "I think it's going to get very dark before it gets better."
He has good reason to think this. White Walkers have been a growing threat, and we have been hearing for seasons that winter will bring more danger and despair.
"I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force," said Harington. "I don't know what it means. I think with the whole 'winter is finally here' business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time."
Yet not quite everyone will have a bad time. The fans, at least, can count on more drama, action, and excitement as the power struggle in the Seven Kingdoms continues. However, it will be bittersweet given that Season 8 will conclude the series.
"I think I'm going to really make the effort in these next two years to enjoy every moment of it," said Harington.
We'll be right there alongside him, doing the same.
