When you play the "Game of Thrones" you win or you die. The actors definitely won, whether their characters survived the series or not.
Season 8 is wrapping up filming now, and we know several stars -- including Emilia Clarke -- have taped their characters' final scenes.
It looks like the big season wrap party was held over the weekend in the filming headquarters of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Since this is the final season, it's basically the series wrap party -- and at least three old Season 1 friends returned for the fun.
Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) never turns down a party, and he reunited with Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) for some fun photos, and also shared pics with Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Rory McCann (The Hound), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon), and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

Emilia Clarke also shared some amazing photos -- with Jason Momoa, and also Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), and their dialect coach:
FYI...This is the closest you'll ever get to me attempting 'that lift' from dirty dancing. Yes, my man is sitting. Yes, there's no lake. And yes, I have no idea I'm NOT being raised above his head. (Id like to take a moment to thank alcohol for giving me courage to attempt this. Ever.) @gameofthrones @prideofgypsies #nooneputsdrogointhecorner #imhavingthetimeofmylife #fyi #thankgodwegotthatmanonathrone #mysunandstarsintheireyes #❤️ #????

We're gonna miss these crazy queens and kings.
According to Watchers on the Wall, several other cast members were spotted in Belfast over the past few days, including Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Nikolaj Coster Waldau (Jaime Lannister), and Hafþór Björnsson (Gregor Clegane). There are probably more photos out there, or on the way, from those stars and other cast and crew members.
"Game of Thrones" Season 8 will only have six episodes, airing sometime in 2019 on HBO. We're on standby for the first trailer. Or some official images. Anything. We want it here. And yet ... we're not ready to say goodbye.
