For seven seasons now, the story of the divided, war-torn country Westeros and the people vying to rule it has brought people together for viewing parties, character analysis, and passionate debate about everything from Jon Snow's parentage to who will eventually claim control of the Iron Throne.
Game Of Thrones Season 8, the final arc of the story, begins on April 14th, 2019. What was once a sprawling, complicated story with dozens of separate threads has boiled down to loads of conflicts that have kept the viewers hooked as well as asking for more.
So far there have been many surprises, twists and turns in Game Of Thrones, but what we all have found the most striking in Season 8 is perhaps the relationship between Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and the once-meek Reek, the rehabilitated Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen). Their heartfelt hug at Theon's return to Winterfell has fans wondering if there is time left in the series for a love story.
When Sophie Turner first landed her role on Game of Thrones she was only 14 years old. Cast as the 13-year-old Sansa, she first meets Theon as a child in her home, at Winterfell. Theon was taken as a hostage of her father?s (Ned Stark) when Balon Greyjoy attempted (and failed) at a rebellion against the Iron Throne. The two were raised together as friends and practically siblings. He has been well taken care of by the Starks and raised alongside Winterfell heir.
Going by what one has seen so far, I am sure the season finale of Game Of Thrones will be one of the most talked about and widely views season.
