Look out GoT tragics

If you thought you didn’t have enough time to catch up on Game of Thrones ahead of its epic season finale, think again.

It’s been 84 (two) years since us diehard fans were last treated to a new episode and the wait until the April premiere is legitimately a painful one.

But if you’ve never watched it before and want to join the GoT bandwagon — or you want to rewatch it — you’re on a serious but achievable deadline.

The final chapter of the multi-award winning fantasy series will stream in Australia express from the US on Monday, April 15 at 11am AEDT on Foxtel.

And if you commit to watching one episode a day, you need to begin on Thursday, February 7 to have watched every single episode ahead of the finale launch.

For many of us who devour entire series’ in 24 hours, one episode a day is a walk in the park. Just think of it as like a GoT advent calendar.

Season 8 will comprise of six episodes, which is down from seven in the previous season and the usual 10 in prior seasons.

But we’re told each episode will be the length of an entire feature film with some of the biggest battle sequences in the show’s history — if that is even possible after the Battle of the B**tards.

It comes after a fresh clip from the new season dropped last month, featuring a historic moment fans went crazy for.

After months with no new information about the final series, HBO released the first major teaser which showed Sansa (Sophie Turner) declaring Winterfell’s allegiance to Dany (Emilia Clarke).

“Winterfell is yours, your grace,” she says to the Mother of Dragons in the short clip.

Jon Snow, portrayed by Kit Harington, is also in the scene standing next to Dany.

The three power players are in Winterfell, where many are gathering to fight the Army of the Dead in what will no doubt be an epic battle as the series comes to its conclusion.

What that conclusion will be is anyone’s guess.

Game of Thrones has become one of the biggest shows on the planet thanks to its unpredictable storylines and outlandish plots.
