Banners supporting 'Game of Thrones' character Jon Snow appear in Beirut

Banners supporting 'Game of Thrones' character Jon Snow appear in Beirut

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have created a Game of Thrones playlist on Spotify for the final season of the show, and apparently it contains a hint about how the show's big finale goes down.

Game of Thrones fans counting down the minutes until Sunday's season premiere just got luckier than Jon Snow during the Battle of the Bastards: They'll be able to get a glimpse of Westeros ahead of the series' final season return later that evening.

The small screen heartthrob debuted his fresh-faced look on United States show Saturday Night Live and explained that the new aesthetic was for a Winston Churchill sketch.

When Game of Thrones first hit the air on HBO in 2011, none of the cast members knew that it would become the cultural touchstone of this decade. But say what you will about the series, it offered juicy, complex roles for all of its actors to chew on, often to awards acclaim. "There's variety in there-Rage is not Johnny Cash".


You can also find references to dragons (Danzig's "Her Black Wings"), Arya's Faceless assassin abilities (Slayers' "Dead Skin Mask" and Queens of the Stone Age's "No One Knows"), the crown, fate, sisters and monsters, and even the end of the series, courtesy of the Doors' cheesy "The End". Similarly, banners with "we are all with you" written on them materialised all over Lebanon when people thought that Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned under duress in November 2017 in Saudi Arabia. "It matters a lot to us", said Weiss. After the NY premiere of GOT Season 8, Kit got busy with rehearsing for Saturday Night Live and the episode has finally aired.

Lena Headey plays Cersei Lannister.

"We'll be in an undisclosed location, turning off our phones and opening various bottles", said Weiss.
