2018: A Year Without Game Of Thrones (And Why That’s A Good Thing)
***IMPOSSIBLY HUGE GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS AHEAD***
Well… Winter is Here… After 7 incredible seasons, Game of Thrones is currently crafting a grand finale featuring 6 episodes… Six…
Six episodes left to wrap up an epic tale that’s taken us through some of the most shocking twists and character deaths in the history of television. Six episodes left to end the great game and settle who belongs on the Iron Throne once and for all.
Honestly, I still go back and watch reaction videos once in a while and picture what my face must have looked like when I experienced the big moments.
Events like these brought us to tears… But we cheered also…
We’ve experienced so much in the land of Westeros and yet, here we are, staring ahead at a year WITHOUT Game of Thrones.
A year without moments like…
And entire year…
So why is this a good thing?
Honestly? It’s training. Training for a world without Game of Thrones. Because the show will end and yet we still have six more episodes to anticipate and analyze. When it’s all over, I sincerely believe we’ll miss these long waits especially the longest wait of them all. The wait for season 8… (I didn’t intend for that to rhyme.)
Soon we will see posters, trailers, clips and more. Rumors will swirl about how it will all end. The final release dates will be revealed. We’ll dissect the episode titles and speculate on who will survive based on mere words. We’ll record and listen to podcasts. We’ll write blogs and create content focused on the show we all love together.
We debate the best moments, the greatest episodes and predict what will happen next…

We thirst for more about the books and the show. We dive into the history, the mythology and the legends of Westeros.
Because Game of Thrones is part of us now…
The truth is, the long wait for Game of Thrones Season 8 will be worth it. But then it will all be over. I look at 2018 as a prime opportunity to train my mind to accept the fact that this brilliant show will end. And when it’s all over, I’ll wish for long waits like 2018 to return.
So humbly I say, take your time Game of Thrones. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye in 2018.
