The moment of truth is almost upon us. Will the (remaining) Stark children finally take control of their destiny for the first time since their parents’ tragic deaths? Will Jon Snow (who is really Aegon Targaryen) and Daenerys get their happily ever? And finally, who will sit on the Iron Throne?

All these questions, and more, will be answered with the final season of the epic saga Game of Thrones premiering on April 14 in the United States and simulcast in India at 6.30 am on April 15. Fans have waited for more than a year between season 7 and the upcoming season 8. And now that it’s almost here, the anticipation is at an all-time high.

As usual, social media is filled with people broadcasting their impatience and excitement. Here are some of the reactions.

What's more, Snapchat has released a Viserion filter, featuring Daenerys's dragon who’s now part of the White Walker fleet.

Unsurprisingly, there are also people trying to brush up on the series which is known for having multiple plot lines, nuances and characters. While the recapping led some people to realise things they had missed before, others re-lived their feelings towards some of the most iconic characters.

And then there are all the recap videos – ranging from a couple of minutes to an hour – that have become immensely popular with people trying to do a crash course on the series right before the final season premiere. This article by Fast Company gives fans a good variety of recaps to choose from.

Even GoT writer Bryan Cogman compiled a list of 21 episodes for Entertainment Weekly that you can watch to catch up on series before the final season.  

If you’re all caught up with the recap and are looking for something to immerse into and prepare for April 15, head over to the Game of Thrones Facebook page for its ‘The Cast Remembers’ series, which featuring interviews with actors and the iconic roles they’ve played for almost a decade. So far, there are interviews with Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister).

HBO has also announced that Game of Thrones fans will be getting a prequel series, one of the five potential spin-offs that could emerge from the hit show. The series has been created by George RR Martin, author of the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series, and British screenwriter Jane Goldman. A pilot for the prequel has been ordered by HBO.
