The eighth and final season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones, produced by HBO, premiered on April 14, 2019, and concluded on May 19, 2019. Unlike the first six seasons, which consisted of ten episodes each, and the seventh season, which consisted of seven episodes, the eighth season consists of only six episodes.
The final season depicts the culmination of the series' two primary conflicts: the Great War against the Army of the Dead, and the Last War for control of the Iron Throne. In the first half of the season, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and many of the main characters converge at Winterfell to face the Dead. During the battle, Bran lures the Night King into the open where Arya destroys him; the army of White Walkers and wights crumble. Meanwhile, Cersei Lannister remains in King's Landing and strengthens her forces to set traps for a weakened Daenerys. The second half of the season resumes the war for the throne as Daenerys suffers losses until she finally assaults King's Landing upon Drogon, her last dragon. She defeats Cersei's forces, burns the city and kills Cersei and her brother Jaime. Daenerys vows to "liberate" the whole world as she has liberated the capital of Westeros. Unable to sway her from her destructive path, an agonized Jon kills her. Drogon flies away with her body, but not before destroying the Iron Throne with dragonfire. The leaders of Westeros choose Bran Stark as King, who grants the North independence and appoints Tyrion his Hand. Sansa Stark is crowned Queen in the North. Arya sails west, and Jon leads the Wildlings north of the Wall.
The season was filmed from October 2017 to July 2018 and largely consists of original content not found in George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, while also incorporating material that Martin has revealed to showrunners about the upcoming novels in the series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. The season was adapted for television by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
The season was met with mixed reviews from critics, in contrast to the largely critical acclaim of previous seasons, and is the lowest-rated of the series on the website Rotten Tomatoes. While the performances, production values, cinematography, and music score were praised, criticism was mainly directed at the shorter runtime of the season as well as numerous creative decisions made by the showrunners regarding the story, writing and character arcs; many commentators deemed it to be a disappointing conclusion to the series.
The season received 32 nominations at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, the most for a single season of television in history. It won twelve, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Peter Dinklage.
Winter is coming to Westeros. In the North, the Stark children meet in Winterfell. Jon Snow, now king, works to unify all the houses in the North and the Savages to face the immense army of the approaching White Walkers.
Daenerys Targaryen and her gigantic army of Dothrakis and Immaculate crosses the strait thanks to the fleet of Yara Greyjoy, and settles in the citadel of Dragonstone. On Tyrion Lannister's advice, rather than sweeping her army over the kingdom and setting it on fire and blood to subdue it, she sets out in search of allies. Jon Snow, also looking for allies, comes to meet her in Dragonstone.
In Port-Réal, the Lannisters, more isolated than ever, are trying to maintain power despite the opposition of the Martell houses and especially Tyrell, with whom the alliance was broken by the attack on the great septuary of Baelor. Jaime Lannister, head of the Royal Army, has taken over the Tyrells' lands, their crops and their gold to everyone's surprise.
