'Game of Thrones' Star Explains That Final Scene With Jon Snow & Sam

Game Of Thrones Ed Sheeran and Maisie Williams

McElhenney confirmed the Game of Thrones cameo via Instagram after the episode aired, with the caption "Don't blink", and his location set as Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

HBO said Sunday's live USA television audience and viewers on its HBO GO and HBO NOW apps exceeded the previous series high of 16.9 million viewers for the Season 7 finale two years ago.

After well over a year of hiatus that left fans dying for news of what would happen after the insane Season 7 cliffhangers, Game of Thrones finally returned for its eighth and final season on April 14.

Game of Thrones is available in over 150 countries worldwide, but HBO said viewing data is not easily retrieved in many of those markets, making a global figure impossible to calculate.

The seventh season ended with many loose ends left untied. Starting in Season 1 in 2011 and all the way to Season 6 in 2016, the Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Kit Harington-led drama opened in late March or mid-April. Some of these subplots are overtly addressed in the premiere: Jon learns of his heritage from Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), and the White Walkers murder Ned Umber (Harry Grasby) and display his body on the wall as a sign to the band of Northerners hunting them.

As part of the launch, DDB Sydney and Foxtel built a 2000 square metre graveyard that paid tribute to the bloodshed and more than 100,000 deaths over the past seven seasons.

The initial scenes of the episode seem nearly like the reboot of a late "90s sitcom".

Plus, Cersei's elephant upset, Sansa's sideye at Daenerys and more. He pulls back his hood - it's Jaime Lannister.

The 32-year-old actor had to lock lips with the actress in season seven of the hit HBO fantasy drama, which is now airing its eighth and final season.

While chatting with Sunday Today, only a few hours before the premiere of GoT's last season, Kit made it very clear that for him, no other role he'll ever play can be as special as the one of Jon Snow.

Harington is about to say goodbye to the character he has inhabited for the past eight years.
