Winter Comes to King’s Landing in ‘Game of Thrones” Season 8 Leaked Images

The season seven ending of Game of Thrones left fans anticipating the inevitable battle between the White Walkers, Cersei Lannister and her few allies, and the rest of Westeros. Then came the heart-wrenching news that the final season of D. B. Weiss and David Benioff’s acclaimed HBO production wouldn’t air until 2019.

Though there may still be plenty of time before the last season releases, leaked production images are giving fans much to be anxious about. In the season seven finale, Cersei Lannister ignored warnings of the White Walkers, instead opting to allow the undead army to wipe out all of Westeros, specifically her enemies, before dealing with the threat in King’s Landing.

Recent production images show the true heir to the Iron Throne Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Cersei (Lena Headey) filming together in Dubrovnik, Croatia. In prior seasons, Dubrovnik has been used as the hub for King’s Landing, meaning the King in the North and the Queen of Westeros may be gearing up for battle. The meeting could also be one last desperate plea from Snow for Cersei to join in the fight against the White Walkers.

These leaked images came only days after Steven McAuley revealed a video of a ‘Game of Thrones’’ set burning. The fiery scene was suspected to be Winterfell, which would be in direct line of the White Walkers’ army as it continues its march south after toppling The Wall.


Other highly anticipated moments that will fill the short final season included the reveal of Jon Snow’s true lineage and the struggle between him and newfound love Daenerys that it will cause. If Winterfell survives long enough, there can also be an expected rift between Snow and half-sister Sansa Stark for rule over the northern city, which started to blossom towards the end of the prior season.

The final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ will undoubtedly force Snow, Daenerys, and their allies to fight a war on two fronts. In a show that prides itself on killing off major characters on a whim, it’s bound to be a stress-filled six episodes.

Though the eighth season marks the end of this era of Game of Thrones, four spin-off shows are in consideration for production in the future.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
