It’s no secret that “Game of Thrones” isn’t scared of killing off its main characters, and the upcoming final season won’t be an exception.
According to HBO executive, Francesca Orsi, who got to sit in on the table read for the final episodes of the show, there would be quite a number of deaths in season eight.
She revealed this during a HBO-centric panel at the INTV conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
“It was a really powerful moment in our lives and our careers,” she said.
“None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths.”
Orsi also said that the table read was an emotional moment for the cast of the series as everyone stood and applauded for 15 to 20 minutes after they finished.
“It was amazing,” she said. “By the very end, everyone looked down and looked up and tears were in their eyes.”
Unlike past seasons, the upcoming season will consist of six episodes. HBO is also developing up to five spinoff series to air after the finale.
