The end is near on Game of Thrones, but there still feels like so much that's left to be resolved. According to John Bradley, who plays Sam Tarly, the last six episodes will be so action-packed that all those threads could actually be tied up.
“I think what we used to call Episode 9 in Game of Thrones folklore—the episode when everything comes to a head and you get a lot of spectacular sequences—I think you’re gonna get six ‘Episode 9s’ this year,” Bradley told Huffington Post. “You can tell that because we’ve got directors who have been in charge of some of the most huge setpieces in the past doing episodes all throughout the season.”
Bradley just described Season 8 in a way that should make any Thrones fan very excited. A season full of "Episode 9s" sounds perfect. And what about those talented directors Bradley mentioned?
“We assembled a team of directors this year who have been in charge of some of our big episodes in the past,” he explained.. “Miguel and David have done some of the standout episodes of previous seasons. Clearly every single episode of the six you’ve got left in Season 8 is gonna be monumental and needs somebody at the helm who’s done that kind of high-stakes, high-octane direction before for us.”
Yes to all of that.
