A Game of Thrones Actor Let Slip a Key Spoiler About Season Eight’s Climactic Battle
It’s the most-anticipated TV moment of the decade.
Although it supplies me with almost daily content, I do not envy the position that any Game of Thrones cast member is in for the next year. Anything—literally anything—anyone involved with the production of Season Eight says about the upcoming episodes will be news. It will be the subject of theories, of debates, of hundreds of words of speculation.
With that, allow me to introduce the latest of Game of Thrones actors who has let slip a very small, yet ultimately, very important detail about the final six episodes.
Vladimír Furdík, who you now know plays the Night King, has revealed that the epic season-climax battle will take place a lot sooner than many die-hard fans would expect.
Typically, the climactic episode of each Game of Thrones season is the penultimate episode, as we’ve seen with “The Rains of Castamere,” “Battle of the Bastards,” and “Beyond the Wall.”
But that won’t be the case in Season Eight, the actor told fans at a convention in Hungary.
“In the third episode of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intended to be a historic moment in television,” Furdík said, as translated by Mashable.
He’s talking about what’s already one of the most hyped TV episodes of the decade.
As we know from previous reports the general outline of the season opens at Winterfell, where the characters converge, and and “the drama builds to a confrontation with the Army of the Dead that’s expected to be the most sustained action sequence ever made for television or film.”
This battle filmed for 55 nights for all the outdoors scenes and continued for weeks after that in the studio.
As Peter Dinklage told EW, “It’s brutal. It makes the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park.”
So if that’s what takes place halfway through the final season, that means there is a lot more plot to deal with after either the humans or White Walkers win the war. Certainly this is one twist fans were not expecting.
