Game of Thrones: 12 Things We Need to See Happen in the Final Season

Like all Game of Thrones fans, we’re still reeling from all the craziness that Season 7 threw our way… but a part of us is already looking ahead.

The final season of HBO’s fantasy hit — whenever it premieres — is still looming, with just six episodes left to tie up all the storylines scattered across Westeros. We still have so many questions: Will the Starks ever get revenge on the Lannisters? Who will sit on the Iron Throne? And considering the white walkers’ ominous advance in the finale, will there even be an Iron Throne left for anyone to sit on?

We combed through all of GoT‘s characters and came up with a dozen plot points that we absolutely need to see in Season 8. This list is part educated guess, part hopeful wish list and a hundred percent wild speculation. But we have at least a year to ponder all of this, so why not get started right away?
