Normally, we'd ignore all Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers because we're kind and patient fans. That being said, ever since it was confirmed that GoT wouldn't be returning until 2019, we've decided to throw all caution to the wind! Bring on the damn spoilers, people, bring them all! We don't care if it ruins the whole series. Making people wait over a year for the most popular show on television is just cruel. Yeah, we're talking to you, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. If you're feeling just as upset as we are, don't worry, we've got you covered.
A recent video that was leaked from the new Winterfell GoT set has revealed a major plot point in the final season. We're not being dramatic here, guys. We're talking endgame material here. If you want to remain pure and chaste, we suggest you stop reading now. If you'd like to join the dark side with us, by all means, keep going. This post is dark and full of spoilers!
According to the ever-informative, Watchers On The Wall, Winterfell is going to fall in season 8. Yes, you read that correctly. Everyone's favorite House Stark is likely to get their asses handed to them. Question is, how is it going to happen? In the video below, you'll see that Moneyglass Estate, home to The Starks is up in flame. That could only mean one thing, right? Well, not necessarily. Take a look at the video and then we'll discuss some theories.
Given the fact that Jon and Dany were quite cozy at the end of Season 7, the fire could conceivably be as a result of her remaining two dragons, but why would that be the case? The Starks and Daenerys are now allies. It seems unlikely that she would burn Winterfell to the ground. Which brings us to our next blonde Got character — Cersei freakin' Lannister. We all know how obsessed with wild fire she is. After all, she's used it quite a bit over the years!
If we had to guess, we suspect that Winterfell burning is going to be a cliff-hanger situation. The showrunners are likely to end an episode that way only to have our favorite characters triumphantly survive and slay all the evil in the Seven Kingdoms. Of course, that's a whole lot of wishful thinking.
