Any reason to believe this guy?

Not really. Bears all the hallmarks of a fake. Still, it could be true.

These “spoilers” are kind of...stating the obvious? How could Sansa not end up in a position of power at the end of the show, assuming she survives? How could Sansa and Tyrion not have good scenes together, given their history? And almost everyone thinks Dany’s doomed, so...

Doesn't seem fishy to me. Sansa's not a fighter. Plus Lena and Nikolaj (who will undoubtedly be part of the KL battle scenes) didn't film in Seville at all.

Sansa isn’t involved in any of the KL exterior scenes other than the one at the Dragonpit, though, even though Tyrion, Arya, Davos and Sam are and their actors filmed in Seville. Not to mention that Sam, Tyrion and Davos are hardly fighters, either, and that Sansa wasn’t involved in any other KL exterior scenes, even the ones that weren’t battle scenes.

Judging from Sophie’s interview and going off dates when she was spotted in Belfast, she wrapped in Northern Ireland in mid-April.

I think expecting the entirety of the series finale to be an epilogue was a reach. Especially since so many of the characters are so young and it's better if their endings are left a little open ended than something so concrete like the Harry Potter epilogue where we see them all aged up and married with 3 to 4 kids

I never expected an epilogue with everyone paired off with kids, except for maybe Baby Sam and Jon and Dany’s kid, but I’ll be disappointed if there’s a cursory denouement of like five minutes or whatever just so D&D can have their enormous battle set piece and gun for a Best Directing Emmy.

In between Sophie’s comments about the actors only having 24 hours to read the scripts before filming; a big battle and other complicated sequences taking place in 8x06; two novice directors at the helm; and the extensive use of green screen, I’m worried that the finale is going to be a shitshow.

Are we sure about the KL exterior scenes? Do we know when exactly they STARTED filming at that big KL set in episode 5? Honestly I think it’s very hard to tell exactly what kinds of scenes actors will have based on when they’re seen and because they don’t film in order. It’s true that Tyrion and Davos aren’t really fighters either but they’ve still had action scenes unlike Sansa and we have no real clue about Sam.

lol I don’t believe Sophie’s comment about actors only have 24 hours to read a scene. Sounds like BS and trolling to me.

time will tell about everything else. But honestly in regards to the writing I’m not expecting season 8 to be better than season 7. I’m sure there will be a thing or two in season 8 that’s just as fucking stupid as the wight hunt.

What if the bittersweet ending GRRM keeps talking about is Daenerys reuniting with Drogo and moving on to the next level (like LOST)?

I pick up a vibe that Daenerys saves Westeros from the long night sacrificing herself.

And when magic dies, Jon will die from his old wounds and live on in Ghost.

why is Dany reuniting with Drogo a thing?

Jon said there is nothing when you die. There is no afterlife in this world.

For the past few years, I've suspected that Dany will die in some kind of sacrifice to destroy the Others. If she turns villainous beforehand, it will be used as a way to make her sacrifice that much more poignant.

I'm not sure about Jon. On the show he didn't change much, but GRRM made it pretty clear in the books that being undead is not a pleasant experience. Perhaps he'll go down in a blaze of glory as well.

With GRRMs love for subverting tropes Jon could become Daenerys' Nissa Nissa ... the sword that shines in the darkness.

IMHO it's a given that magic vanishes from Westeros in the end, so Daenerys, Jon, Melisandre, Night King, White Walkers, dragons ... will have to go.
