"Game of Thrones" fans, prepare to have your "mind blown."
That's what cast member Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Daenerys Targaryen's right-hand woman Missandei, teases is going to happen when they see the eighth and final season next year on HBO.
“This season is going to be incredibly satisfying for people. It is going to be incredibly exciting and heartbreaking," she told the Hindustan Times." I feel like people will have their mind blown when they watch the final one.”
Very little is known about Season 8, other than that it will contain six episodes. In the Season 7 finale, the Night King and his Ice Dragon had blasted through the Wall and were marching into Westeros. Missandei's boss, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), hooked up with King of the North Jon Snow (Kit Harington) — neither of them realizing they were related.
“Like in the last couple of seasons, we have seen the pace of the show increase with the stakes getting higher and higher," Emmanuel said.
"There are so many storylines that have to come to conclusion. We have to play them out, so the pace of the show is continuing on that sense.”
"Game of Thrones" Season 8 will premiere sometime in the first half of 2019 on HBO.
