LET THE GAMES BE­GIN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

THE global launch of the final sea­son of Game­ofThrones is here and it comes with the prom­ise of mass ther­apy ses­sions for view­ers. “The show end­ing is go­ing to send all of the world into pro­fes­sional help,” Gwendoline Christie, who plays Bri­enne of Tarth, one of Wes­teros’s fiercest fight­ers, said re­cently. As al­ways, cast and crew have been tight-lipped about what the final sea­son has in store but keen-eyed fans have gleaned some clues from the brief pro­mos re­leased by HBO. The first trailer re­vealed Daen­erys (Emilia Clarke) and Sansa (So­phie Turner) will meet for the first time in an icy face­off, al­low­ing fans to sur­mise that Jon Snow (Kit Harington, pic­tured with Clarke) has brought ro­man­tic in­ter­est Daen­erys to Win­ter­fell and Sansa is none too pleased. There’s the footage of a dis­traught Arya (Maisie Wil­liams) run­ning through the cham­bers of Win­ter­fell, as she re­counts the phrase, “I know death, he’s got many faces, I look for­ward to see­ing this one”. She is later seen wield­ing a sword against an en­emy, lead­ing fans to spec­u­late she could play a ma­jor role in the race to rule Wes­teros. But per­haps the most heart­warm­ing plot point to be teased is that Jon and sis­ter Arya will be re­united, af­ter part­ing ways in the first sea­son. While HBO have man­aged to feed spec­u­la­tion for months, they are also masters of the sur­prise plot twist, so take up your po­si­tion on the edge of your seat and let the games be­gin.
