Millions of "Game of Thrones" fans froze in impatience. In less than a week, they will be able to see the first episode of the new season of the cult saga, which they have been waiting for almost two years!

"Game of Thrones" is one of the most popular and expensive TV series, which over the years of its existence (2011 — present) has received dozens of awards and hundreds of positive reviews. But, however, it is unlikely that this project needs a separate presentation! We are sure that you are among his fans and, like others, are looking forward to the release of the first episode of season 8.

But since the events of the previous parts have already been erased from the memory of most viewers, we want to remind you a little what happened in the lives of the main characters of the Seven Kingdoms.

When the first season of Game of Thrones was released in 2011, no one (even its creators) could have thought that this series would so turn people's ideas about the fantasy genre. It is worth noting that HBO took a big risk by launching this project, because in those years the most popular among viewers were series of a completely different format, for example, "Underground Empire", "Breaking Bad" or "Mad Men".

However, already from the first episodes of "Game of Thrones", it became clear: this picture is far from typical representatives of the fantasy genre like "The Lord of the Wheels" or "The Chronicles of Narnia". One of the key points that distinguish "Game of Thrones" from similar movie epos is the lack of positive characters.

All the characters of the saga have repeatedly committed contradictory actions, so it is impossible to say with confidence that "someone is good and someone is bad". In addition, each of them could die at any moment. The audience realized this immediately after the execution episode Ned Stark.

In subsequent episodes, viewers could watch endless intrigues, enmity between the heroes, the murder of opponents and the support of allies, love and hate, the destruction of obstacles on the way to the coveted throne. In the end, in the seventh season, the most powerful inhabitants of the Seven Kingdoms remained among the key characters — Daenerys, John, Cersei, Tyrion, Arya and Sansa.

In the seventh season of Game of Thrones, Daenerys, enlisting the support of the Dothraki army, went to conquer Westeros, which at that time was ruled by Cersei, who herself proclaimed herself queen. Jon Snow's problems are much more serious than women's fights — he will have a war with white walkers. Therefore, he goes to Dragonstone to get dragon glass — the only weapon against these creatures. But, realizing that he cannot cope without the support of a powerful army, John convinces Daenerys to fight with him in the North, and in return recognizes her as queen and takes the oath.

In this duel, Daenerys loses one of the dragons. This event made the fans of the series very sad.

Meanwhile Arya Stark returns from Bravos to Westeros and, having mastered all the skills of the faceless ones, administers her own justice over her family's enemies along the way. Bran Stark is also coming home. But now he is endowed with unique powers — the gift of clairvoyance and the ability to "travel" through places and time in the guise of a Three-eyed Raven. Thus, all the surviving Starks — Arya, Brandon and Sansa - gather in the walls of their father's house.

Season 7 ends with a very spectacular scene: the army of white walkers, with the help of the animated dragon Daenerys, destroys the Wall and sets foot on the lands of Westeros.

But, as they say, "it's better to see it once," so we suggest you watch a 15-minute video that completely retells the plot of the previous seven seasons of Game of Thrones.

We also want to remind you that the 8th season of the cult saga will be available to watch in April this year. The premiere of the first episode will take place on April 14, the following episodes will be released every Sunday: April 21, April 28, May 5, May 12 and the final sixth episode — May 19.
