We’re almost near the end of Game of Thrones. After a polarizing Season 7, they are getting ready to move forward with Season 8 (which is rumored to start filming this month). With several seasons of build-up, the show has worked hard to pay off all these moments in a big way. Needless to say, it’ll have an effect in the final episodes.

Speaking with HuffPost, actor John Bradley-West, who plays Samwell Tarly in the show, said:

“Clearly every single episode of the six you’ve got left in Season 8 is gonna be monumental and needs somebody at the helm who’s done that kind of high-stakes, high-octane direction before for us.”

“I think what we used to call Episode 9 in Game of Thrones folklore — the episode when everything comes to a head and you get a lot of spectacular sequences — I think you’re gonna get six ‘Episode 9s’ this year,. You can tell that because we’ve got directors who have been in charge of some of the most huge setpieces in the past doing episodes all throughout the season.”

Indeed, the second to last episode of past seasons were often known for their high body count or huge WTF moments, but Season 7 already saw a change in that. The pacing was considerably faster, and there were a lot more of those “big moments.”

Whether or not this is better or worse is up for debate, but there’s one thing for sure, this tale of warring houses can’t end with a whimper.
