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.

Amendment 4—a Florida referendum restoring voting rights to former felons—passed in 2018 with 65% of the vote, paving the way for an additional 1.4 million voters in the swing state.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis immediately took steps to undermine the public will by signing into law a bill that would only restore voting rights to felons who fully pay all fees and fines imposed after leaving prison.

Under Florida law, court debts left unpaid after three months are referred to private debt collectors, who can then tack on a surcharge of up to 40%.

Now that the impeachment articles have been transferred to the U.S. Senate and Senators have been sworn in as jurors, Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial is officially underway.

And while it's adjourned for the long weekend, the White House just announced their legal team, and it's a doozy.

In addition to lead attorneys Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow, Trump's legal team will consist of five additional lawyers who are expected to have speaking roles on the Senate floor throughout the trial:

  • Robert Ray
  • Alan Dershowitz
  • Ken Starr
  • Jane Raskin
  • Pam Bondi
Yep, you read that right, Ken Starr, of Clinton impeachment infamy.

And none other than Monica Lewinsky herself weighed in with a reaction that was relatable AF:

Many were here for it and had Lewinsky's back.

But doesn't that sentiment pretty much define every day?

And how is that going to. go for Starr?


Can we make this happen, please?

In 2016, the Post launched the Trump Promise Tracker, which kept a record of the 280+ promises Trump made during the campaign. As the end of his first term draws nearer and nearer, the Post has been updating the tracker of which promises Trump has kept since his election.
