Since its very first scene, Game of Thrones set the stage for a great war between the living and the dead. For many fans, this seemed like it would be the show’s final conflict. But in season 8’s third episode, The Long Night, that battle came to an abrupt end. The Night King and his army were only one of the show’s main threats, but Game of Thrones is a story about people’s cruelty, not an ultimate evil power. And that’s exactly what we can expect from the show’s last three episodes. Rather than a war against a faceless, decaying enemy, we’re back to the land of the living — and who finally gets the Iron Throne. So, with the Night King beaten, the North's forces nearly wiped out, and Cersei in control of a massive mercenary army, what happens now?

There's a lot to unpack in Altered Carbon, Netflix's sexy, noir science fiction, so you could be forgiven for missing this sly nod to everyone's favorite TV show, Game of Thrones.

In it, Williams says, “We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April . That’s a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes.” So no midsummer madness for Thrones this time around. In fact, Game of Thrones season 7 aside, the show has history when it comes to debuting in April. Every season except seasons 7 and 3 (which debuted on March … [Read more...] about Maisie Williams lets slip that Game of Thrones season 8 returns in April 2019
