Kit Harington, the man behind the shaggy coat wearing ruffian Jon Snow, has spilled on the final season of Game of Thrones. And, according to the actor, the series finale isn't going to be a crowd-pleaser.
In a recent interview, the actor compared the season eight finale to those of other shows including Breaking Bad, The Wire and The Sopranos.
When asked if the show's final episode could live up to the expectations of fans, Kit said "I hope so."
However, he admits that he knows not everyone will love the ending.
"I think a TV series that spanned eight, nine years is an incredibly difficult thing to end," he says. "I think not everyone's gonna be happy and you can't please everyone.
"My favourite TV shows, Sopranos, and Breaking Bad, and The Wire, they all ended in a way that…. You know, it's never going to satisfy you."
Kit isn't the cast-member to comment on the upcoming season, and it's heavily pressured finale.
Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) says fans will be left 'divided' over the ending.
"People will scream and people will say, 'That's exactly what I wanted'" Emilia says. "And some people will go, 'Huh?' — my mum, probably."
Meanwhile, Nathalie Emmanuel (who stars as Missandei) has claimed the new series - especially the finale - is heartbreaking.
"I think what we can expect from the final season of GoT is just a real push," Nathalie tells The Hindustan Times.
"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 so many characters and stories that haven't found their conclusion," she continues. "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."
Game of Thrones eighth and final season will premiere in 2019.
