HBO Drops "Next Week On Game Of Thrones" Teaser

HBO Drops

It's also worth noting that last night's Season 8 debut garnered the most tweets related to a GAME OF THRONES event with more than 5 million posts hitting the social network on Sunday evening.

Game of Thrones' final season premiere just aired, and it's fitting that the episode had so many parallels to the series premiere that aired way back in 2011. For starters, the wall is now in tatters, decimated by the Night King at the end of Game of Thrones season 7.

However, while Winterfell was more about moving chess pieces into place, the history of Game Of Thrones had never been more present.

Just ask Kit Harington, who almost had a very NSFW accident while filming a scene for the season 8 premiere episode, which aired last night. I'm not even referring to the scene in the trailer, where Daenerys reminds us who the Kingslayer is in this universe, but at something that we've been waiting for eight seasons to see.

"Apparently our system was as excited as we were for Game of Thrones last night and gave a few DirecTV Now customers early access to the episode by mistake", an AT&T spokesperson told Gizmodo.

We've arguably seen shades of a "Mad Queen Daenerys" before when she gets too roast-happy.

During the death-defying scene, Kit - who plays Jon Snow - was left fearing the worst as the mechanical dragon he was sat on made a violent turn and swung the star around.

Nearly four million people stayed up halfway through the night -and many of them called in sick yesterday as a result. The biggest of which is that Jon Snow finally found out that he is actually the son of Daenerys Targaryen's brother Rhaeger and Lyanna Stark, the sister of Ned, and was born Aegon Targaryen. The Late Show with Matty Johns also featured a large amount of Game of Thrones integration, with the panelists, including Johns himself, dressing as characters from the show.
