Gli ultimi possibili spoiler arrivano da un utente di reddit (che come quasi tutti gli altri sedicenti leakers mi pare essersi poi cancellato) che dice di conoscere qualcuno che sta seguendo un progetto legato a GOT (in India mi pare di capire- lui dice di essere del Bangladesh).
Nessuna conferma sulla legittimità.
From the same lady, translating her words,
- 'you can think it of like it is a 10+ hour long movie with five intermissions each with a great cliffhanger'.
- 'I am not sure which episodes will contain which scenes, so I cannot tell you if night king dies on episode 5 or 6. But only thing I can understand from the sequences is that magic increases as the story goes forward, and the fight will end with great magic.'
- 'at least two major character deaths. But I do not know if they revive or not'
- I asked who she means as major characters of the show, she avoided, but at last I could make out that she considers even Sansa and Sam and Jorah and Jaime and Sandor as main characters.
- the ending is not fully happy, but it is fully satisfactory, and 'wonderful'.
- no trailer may be coming before November, she cannot tell about in-production tease though.
Edited for preserving anonymity of the source.
This is not from the lady, but from her colleague, secondary source. So believe at your own risk.
1. The first half of the season is Cersei's game, while the last episode is the mainly the Stark family's game. The Starks get exasperated at all the trickery, becomes tricky and plays the endgame daredevil.
2. A specific info on Varys - he effectively regains full control of his former birds, to such an extent that the kids work as double agents.
3. All North vs Targaryen suspicions and/or doubts get fully clear on last three episodes, and antagonists get wiped out (he used the word 'all Villains' lol).
That's all for now.
I came to know a while ago from the person who gave info about Cersei and Varys in KL that he heard we may get to see a new brief relationship in Season 8, he is not sure if the relationship will be of physical nature, but it will be weird, very very weird. It will add to existing list of Ice and Fire couples and prospective couples like Jonerys or Gendrya. I asked if Gendrya happens, he said it will but they would not have scenes or baby like Jonerys did in S7.
The new brief Ice and Fire relationship will be Bran and Melisandre. Yuk!! I wish I hadn't heard it.
There is a sad info. Dany really experiences a deadly trauma scene. He cannot tell if it is a death, or a near death experience, and he does not know any revival info yet. I do not know if ever I will be able to know, from him. I just am praying that this will be no major trauma, and that she will recover. This is the first time I got sad news from him, and it is not easy to digest.
Braime happens. But no info yet about Jaime or Brienne's fate. That was all.
Sorry if I made you sad, I myself need a break now.
The project we were working on together will wrap tomorrow, so had an informal weekend party. It seemed like a suitable time to part, as I did not want these flattering and pampering for info to grow into any kind of relationship, expectations seemed to grow a bit higher on the other end recently but I have my family. Also, I was feeling guilty to risk this lady's and her colleague's career with all these sharing. Since the working together is coming to an end, I do not think I will hold as much importance later as they will get busy with other existing or new clients, so I wanted to bring out as much information as I could in the last few days and today, also wanted to make sure she understands clearly that my interests are only on the information.
And I got quite a lot. At least as much as she knows and he knows from their position, and excluding major things that may endanger them. Here is it.
Dany's illness for pregnancy is hinted very early next season, although it is confirmed only later, but nonetheless like all their previous plans this hint of information reaches KL pretty fast. Don't ask me how. I asked them, they said they do not know working mostly on specific shots from specific places on a limited set of characters. One was suspecting Tyrion and the other person was saying he thinks Varys, but both said clearly that they do not know about the medium yet. Whatever, Cersei learns this pregnancy information after her miscarriage, she knows already about Jaime's riding North, and gets mad with rage. She also guesses the vulnerability of dragonrider while pregnant, and decides it is a right time to attack.
Cersei was correct on the vulnerability aspect though, that gets proven when Dany feels weakened in the Dance of the Dragons after Winterfell is attacked by AOTD. Bran foresees both the army's advance and suggests evacuation instead, but Jon insists togetherness of all North inside WF and Dany agrees to defend North, although they suggest giving shelter to all to Dragonstone.
The dragonstone cave is believed to be safest shelter from the white walkers similar to the last time COTF and first men's shelter, as deads cannot endure obsidian contact. After Dany's pregnancy is revealed, she is sent to Dragonstone with Misandei at some point, they were not sure of the time, but suggested it will fall on or after 4th episode, a partially injured Jorah guards them. Dany wants to join them in the fight, but at last agrees thinking of the future of the baby, and reluctantly leaves. She shows back in King's Landing sky later in episode 5, when it is endangered along with Northern forces and refugees.
King's Landing is flooded with deads in ep5. Three scenes of street fighting they have seen so far, in all of them the dead are winning, protagonists looking for escape route with commoners. Big explosions destroy KL walls buildings. They noticed at least three kinds of armor but could not tell which one belongs to which group.
The shots will have color grading like films probably after September, they could not tell if the previous seasons also had similar color grading. There are special effect scenes with time running backwards, watery storms and an extremely bright light of explosion.
And there are scenes with hint of CGI direwolves to fill in, with Jon and with Arya as well later. Tyrion gets scared by the enormous direwolf, probably Ghost, but they are not sure if that looks parallel to the scene in S7E3 where Davos gets scared from a dragon. There is a CGI wolf pack scene attacking wights, not sure if it is North or South as well over 80% of the shots they received have winter conditions. Yes, Arya looks as if riding something on that size or proportion in one scene. She speculated that Arya will ride a direwolf.
I asked them times and again who will live and who will die. But both of them mischievously giggled. Then he said, 'what if I told you all the heroes live in the end, will you believe?' No, I said, are you telling about resurrection. He smiled and exchanged looks with her. Probably they wouldn't risk giving out any serious endgame info, at all.
Does Jon ride a dragon? Not until his scenes they received so far. But one of the ending CGI scene of him is probably with a dragon. Riding that? No, not in that scene. But he cannot tell yet. Wait, so Jon lives until the end? Mysterious smile and they exchange look again. And says, yes.
I will poke them tomorrow after the project closure. May be that will be the last info I get from them. My watch will probably end after it.
