On April 14, millions of viewers will be tuning in to the final season premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones, a television program based on George RR Martin’s book series “A Song of Fire and Ice.” The Emmy awarded series has attracted a cult following and is one of the most widely watched programs of all time.

Right from the moment protagonist Ned Stark got his head chopped off at the end of season one, fans knew the show was willing to break boundaries. From a fireproof dragon queen, resurrections, mass infant homicides, an army of killer zombies, to an extremely uncomfortable amount of incest, the show has taken fans on a whirlwind of an emotional roller coaster since 2011.

In its final season, one thing that fans are certain of is that death is coming.

“You’re going to need therapy,” Gwendoline Christie, who plays the noble lady warrior Brienne of Tarth, told E! News. “I think just the show ending is going to send all of the world into professional help.”

There’s a theory that Sansa Stark will die because in a teaser for this upcoming season, she tells Daenerys Targaryen, “Winterfell is yours, Your Grace.” Oddly enough, that’s the same thing her dad, Ned Stark, said to Robert Baratheon in season one before he traveled to King’s Landing and got decapitated.

“I feel very satisfied with the ending of the entire show. Every story arc came to a really good close,” Sophie Turner, who portrays Sansa, said in an interview with Rolling Stone.

After the series finale, HBO is releasing a two-hour documentary called “The Last Watch,” which will air on May 26th and chronicle the making of the first season.

“[It’s] much more than a making of a documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it,” said HBO.
