We’ve still got at least a solid 10 months until the best show on television, Game Of Thrones, returns. Thrones is so far away that by the time it airs, either Hillary or Trump will have been in charge for half a year. Crazy sh*t, I know. Time is a flat circle, all that good stuff.
Anyway, one of the reasons this past season of Game Of Thrones was so goddamn delightful (and its best season yet) was because for ONCE our heroes didn’t spend an entire season taking fat L after fat L. Well, savor it while you can Thrones fans, because apparently, it’s allllll gonna go back to hell.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Kit Harrington, AKA Jon Snow, AKA The White Wolf, AKA THE KING IN THE NORTH, said:
I think it’s going to get very bleak before if there is a happy ending. If there’s any sort of win or heroic moment for Jon and everyone else. I think it’s going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force. So that’s going to be exciting to see. I don’t know what it means. I think with the whole “winter is finally here” business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time.
Yupp. There you have it. We’re all screwed. For season 7 – which is only going to back 6 or 7 episodes, by the way – I’ve got a little dead pool going: I’m betting that Tormund, Davos, and at least one of the Lannisters will die. Amongst others. It’s gonna be brutal, but dammit I can’t wait.
