Game Of Thrones Season Eight Finally Arrives Today

CALM DOWN PEOPLE, CALM THE HELL DOWN BEFORE SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS. TODAY IS THE DAY. THE FINAL SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES IS HERE.

We've waited 595 days since our last taster of the HBO phenomenon and oh boy have we waited. In anticipation. We're on the verge of finding out who lives... and, of course, who dies.

Just yesterday, Kit Harington reminisced on The Graham Norton Show about coming to terms with the realisation that he was no longer 'Jon Snow'.

He explained: "I really, really had waited to say the words 'not anymore' like in a really stoic, kind of cool way, like the first person I'd go 'not anymore'. What really happened was I left set and I was very emotional and this poor girl came up to the airport and said 'are you Jon Snow?' and I went [sobbing]: 'Not anymore'".

It's set to be one of TV's biggest moments of all time, with viewers everywhere getting ready in their own way - re-watching the previous seven seasons to ensure they're truly up to date with what's going on, hunting down Iron Thrones dotted around the globe, or simply getting worked up into a right old tizz on Twitter.

One said: "All chubbed up about game of thrones dropping tomorrow. Word on the street is Sansa gonna show some tiddie."

Someone else added: "Game of Thrones tomorrow. I know the first episode gonna be straight flames."

A third commented: "I'm gonna have to fit in a couple hour nap tomorrow if I'm gonna make it to 2am to watch Game of Thrones".

Another fan wrote: "The final season of Game of Thrones is airing tomorrow, and I'm pissing and shitting myself with excitement."

While we don't know much ahead of the big day, we do know that we can expect big things from the moment we hit play.

Peter Dinklage (aka Tyrion Lannister) has warned viewers that an epic battle scene in the new season will 'make the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park', while each episode is not only longer, but also rumoured to have cost $15m (£11.7m) to create - adding up to an eye-watering $90m (£70.2m) across the entire eighth season.

An unreal amount of money, but something that would surely mean fans are in for an absolute treat.

WELL, BRING IT ON. DO YOUR WORST. TREAT US TO WHAT WE DESERVE.
