Snow also says to Cersei, “There is only one war that matters,” to which she says, “We will face it together.”

Fans expect season 8 to be released in April or May of next year, which is around the same time as the release of past seasons. However, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys recently said he does not know exactly when the show plans to air, but gave it a ‘first half of 2019’ time slot.

If the saga wants to be in the running for an Emmy, the majority of the show must be released before May 31.
