Scripts For 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 "Self-Destruct" After Filming


Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

'Game of Thrones' is without a doubt one of the most successful television shows of all time, but it hasn't been without its controversy. Throughout the years, several leaks from the series have found their way into the media via a number of different means, and now showrunners and writers are doing their all to stop the final six episodes of the fantasy show from being ruined.

Though there are just a few hours of action left, there are plenty of storylines to be wrapped up. We've seen the Night King and his army of White Walkers finally break through The Wall, with Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and some temporary allies gearing up for battle. Having already seen their power and with Daenerys losing one of her dragons to the Night King, they know they'll probably have a lot more to sacrifice on the battlefield when their war against the dead comes to a head.

Shot Caller Review

OK

There isn't much subtlety to this prison thriller, but it's edgy enough to hold the interest as it follows a fine, upstanding man behind bars and transforms him into a criminal mastermind. If the premise sounds familiar, perhaps you've seen Jacques Audiard's soulful 2009 masterpiece A Prophet. Well, this is more like a blow to the head. And by emphasising the characters' thuggishness over anything more nuanced, filmmaker Ric Roman Waugh (Snitch) seems to betray the fact that he thinks brutality is inherently entertaining.

The story centres on Jacob (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), a successful banker with a happy home life with his wife and son (Lake Bell and Jonathan McClendon). Then he's involved in a drunk-driving incident and convicted of manslaughter. And in jail he's adopted by the white supremacist gang, pushed to commit such nasty violence that he cuts off all contact with his family when he's finally released a decade or so later. But he also clearly has a plan now, hiding from his tough-guy parole officer Kutcher (Omari Hardwick) to set up a dodgy operation with former prison-mate Frank (Jon Bernthal) and young military veteran Howie (Emory Cohen). Orchestrating all of this is the big boss (Holt McCallany), who is imprisoned for life.

Thankfully, the actors all add texture to their characters, bringing them to life even if the movie itself seems uninterested in anything beneath the surface. Coster-Waldau is terrific at capturing Jacob's inner decency and steely survival instinct as he transforms from a slick financial analyst into a muscled killing machine. But of course it's his internal journey that is far more interesting. Hardwick and Bernthal are solid as tough guys who feel a bit simplistic. But Bell has some properly steely moments as a woman who simply won't give up on her man even when he tells her to, and Cohen finds some intriguing layers in the quirky, shell-shocked Howie.

'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Scripts Being Kept Secret From Cast


Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

'Game of Thrones' is without a doubt one of the best shows on television, with millions of viewers from across the globe tuning in each week a new episode airs to see just how the developing plot in the Seven Kingdoms is progressing. Despite a slew of leaks that have seen episodes drop earlier than expected via illegal means, the show's penultimate season saw 'GoT' break its own ratings record, and we expect that will only continue when season 8 makes its debut.

When 'Game Of Thrones' makes its return for its eighth season, fans are aware that they'll be watching the final six episodes of the entire series. There may be a collection of spin-offs in early development at HBO, but when it comes to telling this original story - based on the incomplete novel series 'A Song of Ice & Fire' by George R. R. Martin - there are just a few hours to go before its definitive end.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

If you've not yet seen the season 7 finale for 'Game Of Thrones', we recommend coming back to read this one once you have!

With everything that went on in the episode, and that jaw-dropping final scene that saw the Night's King finally break down the wall that separated his army of the dead from Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms, it's hard to remember absolutely everything that went on throughout the finale. One of the standout moments came however when Jaime and Cersei rattled off a frosty exchange, and the former finally broke away from the latter, leaving the Queen to sit on her Iron Throne all alone as he promised to fight the army of the dead alongside her enemies.

With just two seasons to go, that will total 13 episodes rather than the once-expected 20, there's still a lot of story to be told in the Seven Kingdoms and beyond, as the Night King readies his White Walker army to attack beyond the Wall and take over all that lies there. With just Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and a handful of his companions fully aware of the threat facing the living, the challenge is going to be the toughest Snow has faced to-date.
