Who’ll Take the Iron Throne? Here Are the GoT Character Posters

It’s almost here. And as if HBO was sensing our excitement, it decided to give us some serious goosebumps by releasing character posters from the upcoming and final season, Season 8 of fantasy serial drama – Game of Thrones!

One of the questions that’s been on every GoT fan’s mind since Season 7 wrapped up is - Will Jon Snow and Daenerys get together? By now, we know that Daenerys is technically Jon Snow’s aunt, as was revealed in the season finale which showed his mother, Lyanna Stark secretly marrying his father, Rahegar Targaryen, who happens to be Daenerys’ brother.

And what about Tyrion Lannister? Arguably one of our favourite characters of the series - we last see him looking troubled as he realises that Jon Snow and Daenerys are now romantically involved.

Could he be letting on more than he knows?

Oh Cersei. She’s burned more bridges than she can count – finally turning away even her own brother and lover, Jaime Lannister. Cercei and Daenerys’ epic showdown with a White Walker in tow – was possibly one of the most exciting episodes in the series.

But Cersei pulled a Cersei. Promising help to Daenerys and the other forces fighting the White Walkers, she tells Jamie later that she would much rather have the Walkers and her enemies destroy each other, while she stayed put on King’s Landing - leaving Jaime, her closest aide in disgust and turning away.

But what goes on in Winterfell? We know that Arya, Sansa and Bran Stark are reunited, and watched how they finally gave Little Finger a taste of his own medicine.

Not to forget the backbones of the series - Lady Brienne and Ser Davos- underrated but crucial to the plot of the story. What’s their next strategy, now that the Ice Dragon tore down The Wall?

A special mention to Samwell Tarly. Season 7 saw him grow into a strong and confident character- and we hope that he takes more of a lead in the final season. We’re rooting for you, Sam!
