Record 17.4 million watch ‘Game of Thrones’ kickoff for final season

Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark and Iwan Rheon as Ramsay Bolton in the infamous wedding night scene from Game of Thrones

Blink and you might miss them, is exactly the case when it comes to the cameos made in the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones. How do you think you would fair if the Mother of Dragons ordered you to glide through the air atop one of her toothy children? For starters, the wall is now in tatters, decimated by the Night King at the end of Game of Thrones season 7.

Fox League, Fox Footy, Supercars and Fox Rugby also featured in Game of Thrones Round.

Now, could Jon be about to betray Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in her fight for the Iron Throne? "It felt like they were unceremoniously, for the last time, ripping off this character". "When Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) sit in a stagecoach, cracking jokes about each others" genitals, it seems as if the scene needs a laugh track. For now, season eight looks to be predictable, incohesive and utterly out of character - but the dragon rides sure are exciting. Jon was raised as Ned Stark's bastard son, a half-sibling to the five Stark children, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

In the Capitol, Cersei remains a villainous icon, employing Bronn (Jerome Flynn), an opportunistic mercenary, to kill her brothers and having sex with Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) just because she can.

While Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) was elated to finally meet Jon, she reminded him of his commitment to the Stark family. "Jon Snow learns in the first episode that he's the rightful heir to the throne", Wenzel said.

As part of the launch, DDB Sydney and Foxtel built a 2000 square metre graveyard that paid tribute to the bloodshed and more than 100,000 deaths over the past seven seasons. I think what sums up the buck for me was there was a bit where Jon nearly falls off. Daenerys even says a similar comment to one Ygritte did about never wanting to leave.

Not wanting their relationship to be found out, Jaime shoved Bran out the tower window leaving him unable to walk.
