If you haven’t seen Game of Thrones season eight, episode five — “The Bells” — and don’t want to know what happens, leave now.
Before it even began airing, the stars of Game of Thrones hinted they were disappointed by series eight.
In a compilation video put together by The Sun Online, it seems the cast may have already been trying to prepare fans for the outcome of the final season, reports The Sun.

All the hints that even the stars of GoT are disappointed by season 8.
In one interview, Daenerys Targaryen actress, Emilia Clarke, stands with her co-stars Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) and Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) when she’s asked whether she’s happy with her final scenes.
“Yes,” Nathalie replies.
However, Emilia grimaces and giggles before jokingly saying: “Best season ever.”
Similarly, Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) and Conleth Hill (Varys) all burst out laughing when quizzed about the “outcome” of the show.
And Kit Harington, who plays fan favourite Jon Snow, even labelled the series “disappointing” when asked if he could describe the series finale in one word.
He later backtracked by saying he would use the word “epic”.
During the epic Battle Of Winterfell that took place in episode three of the final season, Tyrion Lannister was among the women and children hiding in the crypt from the White Walkers, however Peter Dinklage, who plays the dwarf, mocked the lack of thought that went into the scene.
“It’s terrifying down there. We’re in a crypt, nobody thought of that,” he said.
“He’s bringing all the dead people back to life, and they’ve put the women and children in a crypt with all the dead people.”
Meanwhile Ian McElhinney, who played Ser Barristan Selmy in the show, expressed how disappointed he was his character was killed of in season five.
He said: “I was gutted because a number of you I’m sure have read the books, and I have reason to expect, ‘Oh, I’ve got a journey here’.
“In fact, if I’m being honest, I thought, ‘I am really looking forward to this season because I’m going to have more to do, I’m going to get my teeth into something that I’m really looking forward to because I’ve read the books’.”
He continued: “I did ask and give an argument as to why I thought Barristan should stay, but at the end of the day, Dan and David had worked out what they wanted to do.”
But, most hilariously, the clip showing Dinklage being asked about the show’s ending seems almost as if his response has been scripted.
“There are no better writers in television than Dan Weiss and David Benioff. They ended it brilliantly, better than I could’ve imagined, and you people are in for it,” he responded in a monotone voice.
Earlier this week, it was revealed a fan had started a petition on Change.org asking HBO to remake the entirety of season eight with new writers.
The petition is called “Remake Game of Thrones season 8 with competent writers” and has reached hundreds of thousands of signatures in a short space of time.
Thrones writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been heavily criticised recently because fans aren’t happy with what is happening to their favourite characters.
The petition states: “David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on.
“This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
The hit series got its worst-ever rating after many fans were furious over a plot twist in which Daenerys Targaryen turned evil
The show favourite went on a murderous rampage around King’s Landing despite the city surrendering, with one viewer tweeting: “Well that was f***ing terrible.”
Rating site Rotten Tomatoes earlier this week gave the episode, titled The Bells, a 49 per cent rating — the lowest rating in the show’s history.
