Game of Throne actor, Kit Harington, popularly known by all as Jon Snow secretly checked into luxurious rehab ahead of the final airing for stress and alcohol.
Spoilers follow for the series finale of Game of Thrones, ‘The Iron Throne’.
After 8 long seasons, featuring sometimes outstanding, breathtaking and sometimes mediocre television, the juggernaut known as Game of Thrones, the biggest show ever filmed in terms of scale and one of the best in terms of story, has drawn to a conclusion.
The titular game of thrones, the constant bickering to sit atop the Iron Throne by all the lords and ladies of Westeros, was symbolically drawn to a close by the destruction of the Iron Throne, but the actual game is never going to end so long as ultimate power, the end goal, resides in only one person.

Nine long years in the making! Game of Thrones has always been about the mystery of court intrigue and the terrible things men (and women) are willing to do to satisfy their quest for power. It is what drives the show and has made it the biggest television show ever made and one of the best-written tv series of all time.
Yet since the very first episode of the very first season, we have known that a time would come when the mystery and intrigue would have to take a backseat for the great war, the battle for humanity’s very survival against the threat of the White Walkers.
Spoilers follow for those yet to watch Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 — ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’.
For a global behemoth of a show which has left people waiting two years for its grand resolution, Game of Thrones sure is moving really slow towards its endgame. It’s hard being a fan waiting two years for a tv show and then having to wait just a little bit more for the clearly imminent end of the world.
Thrones only had six episodes to tell its remaining story this season. Yet after having watched the first two episodes of season 8, you would be forgiven for thinking they have the same ten episodes every single past season bar 7 had. Of course, episodes are going to be far longer this season (particularly from episode 3, most spanning well over an hour), but that has not stopped the season’s first two episodes feeling a bit like that of a normal ten episode season and not that of a truncated, six episode final season.

The biggest, most successful and arguably best television show of all time, Game of Thrones, returned Sunday night for its final season run on the cable television network HBO.
Thrones returned from a two-year hiatus with a near hour-long episode which was light on action but featured approximately 10,000 reunions between long-separated characters.
The award winning and record shattering HBO epic fantasy, Game of Thrones, returned on Sunday, plunging millions worldwide back into the intoxicatingly horrifying world of Westeros.
Last season, of course, ended with Lord Commander Jon Snow stabbed multiple times by his sworn brothers, and left in the snow to die.
I don’t remember the last time the death of any TV character generated so much debate, or the last time a TV audience remained so obstinate despite all evidence pointing towards the contrary.
Kit Harrington himself has said Jon Snow is dead, one of the show’s directors told no less a person than Obama that Jon is dead. Yet everyone stubbornly refuses to accept it.
Game of Thrones Director-David Nutter must have a lot of balls to lie to the President of United States—that’s if Jon Snow comes back next season.
Despite the speculations of Jon Snow’s return, David Nutter continues to say, No Way—and he even confirmed to President Obama that Jon Snow is really dead.
Director-David Nutter at Comic-Con on Friday stated that, “Three weeks ago, I was in the company of the President of the United States.He turned to me, put his hand on my shoulder, and said, ‘You didn’t kill Jon Snow did you?”
