This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 1, "Winterfell. Last night, after more than a year off the air, Game of Thrones returned for its eighth and final season. And, after dragging out the truth of Jon Snow's heritage for six seasons and the truth about his not-really-being-a-bastard for another season after that, the show wasted relatively little time in relaying that information to Jon himself and did so at the end of the Season 8 premiere.

Game of Thrones season 8 is upon us - hopefully bringing with it more epic battle scenes, deaths and scary AF white walkers. The final season of Game of Thrones landed this week, and after 8 seasons of death, destruction, deception and dragons, the world will soon know how the series will end - and who ends up on the Iron Throne.
