Now that we have to wait a year for the next season of Game of Thrones, we need something to help ease the burden. Lucky for us, HBO has been creating posters for each of the episodes. Can we have a Netflix moment HBO? Shoot the last two seasons and let us binge watch them.
If you haven’t watched ‘Winds of Winter,’ it is probably the best hour of television I’ve seen in a long time. HBO, crack open the checkbook and give the director whatever he needs. He made the Dorne arc watchable.
Game of Thrones Posters
A crack Imgur user compiled all the posters in one thread for us to enjoy. Still reeling from the Hold the Door episode? Its companion poster is as heartbreaking as seeing Hodor holding the door to allow Bran to escape.
One of the most shocking episodes for those that never read the books is ‘The Rains of Castamere’ or more popularly known as the Red Wedding episode. It also serves as one of my favorites from the set.
Before the Battle of the Bastards, Hardhome was best action sequence from Game of Thrones. The long night is coming, and the dead come with it. It was a great episode and having the Night King juxtaposed over his army and determination in the face of Snow striking down a White Walker with Longclaw.
For the Battle of the Bastards, the direction HBO went with the episode’s poster is perfect. The visceral action is left to the screen, while the art focuses on a darker Sansa killing Ramsay.
Is HBO foreshadowing Sansa’s descent into being a villain or is it a tale of survival and a climb back to the top in what is truly a Game of Thrones.
