When Does 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Come Out?

This article contains spoilers for the season finale of Game Of Thrones.

No matter when the season airs, it will be a short season of only six episodes, Time reported.

It also means that Jon is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne, since Rhaegar was once the crown prince and heir before the Targaryen reign was usurped by the Baratheons. The whole Sansa - Littlefinger - Arya story had people anxious especially as a GoT director revealed that one of the two may die at the end of season 7. "The whole rebellion was built on a lie", says Bran. However, fans believe that the other Aegon Targaryen could easily get assassinated due to George R.R. Martin's affinity for killing off characters.

We don't officially know. This now complicates things between Jon/Aegon and Dany, who had sex in the finale even though they are related (Dany is Jon's aunt) and she probably won't be thrilled to find out that he has a better claim to the throne now than she does. Rhaegar named two of his sons Aegon?

In the previous episode, one of Daenerys' dragons, Viserion, was killed and resurrected by the Night King.

Littlefinger actor Aidan Gillen said he knew his game was up when Bran told him "Chaos is a ladder" in episode 4. Although Ned had to maintain the biggest secret in Westeros and tell a lie about Jon's identity to keep him safe, the morals he instilled upon his children can save the world. Although, if that happens, the fans will finally have to revolt. He's still on his way back to Winterfell. After all, there are plenty of Lyanna flashbacks for Bran to give us a look into. While attempting to evacuate as many men off of the Wall as possible, Beric Dondarrion and Tormund watched helplessly as the undead dragon, now under the control of the Night King, unleashed ice breath across Westeros' last line of defense.

With Cersei sitting out the battle for the North, will the fight for King's Landing become the second act of the final Game of Thrones season, or will it be more of an epilogue, like the Scouring of the Shire in Lord of the Rings?

Littlefinger spent most of season seven pitting the Stark sisters against each other in what was a highly criticised storyline - but it turns out the Game of Thrones showrunners were tricking viewers into underestimating Sansa and Arya's intelligence. We're hopeful that it will be in 2018 at least, though at this point, even Summer 2018 is perhaps too optimistic.
