The end of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones‘ is coming and actress Nathalie Emmanuel (‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’,’The Fate of the Furious’) who plays Missandei on the series has shared what we’ll be feeling as it comes to a close. She deftly is able to give us a sense of the impact that the finale will have without revealing a single spoiler and it’s well worth the read. As most of the cast and crew have clearly shown, this has been just as an emotional journey for them as it has been for the audience.
When asked what audiences can expect going into the eighth and final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ she shared:
“I think what we can expect from the final season of GoT is just a real push. Like in the last couple of seasons, we have seen the pace of the show increase with the stakes getting higher and higher. There are so many storylines that have to come to conclusion. We have to play them out, so the pace of the show is continuing on that sense.”
“There are a lot of loose ends to tie up and the lowest episode count of any season to do it, however as death comes closer to each character it is clear that we’ll see a focus put on those who end up surviving each episode. Speaking of the surviving characters, There are so many characters and stories that haven’t found their conclusion. So, this season is going to be incredibly satisfying for people. It is going to be incredibly exciting and heartbreaking. I feel like people will have their mind blown when they watch the final one.”
The way she mentions that she feels “like people will have their mind blown when they watch the final one” makes me suspect that her character Missandei will be one of those who survives until the very end of the series.
