Gwendoline Christie Says Fans Will Need Therapy After Season 8 Of 'Game Of Thrones'

And Brienne of Tarth is always right.

The hype keeps on growing as we get closer to Game Of Thrones’ last season. To the point where HBO could spare us the conceptual teasers where fire and ice are battling one last time. And when the network finally keeps quiet, the cast takes over to tease the millions of fans worldwide. After Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner and director David Nutter, Gwendoline Christie also dropped a punchline-worth comment while on an interview, in case we were not ready enough for what’s coming in season 8.

The actress who plays the fierce Brienne of Tarth implies we should all make appointments with our therapist after the last six episodes of Game of Thrones. She told E! it won’t be easy to recover from the season of all the dangers:

"You're going to need therapy, I think just the show ending is going to send all of the world into professional help. I think it's going to make me incredibly emotional. We're all emotional about the fact that this is the end, and this is the end of something incredibly significant for all of us, and it's been a truly incredible thing to be a part of"

A warning adding an extra layer to the pile of tragedy ahead of us in what should be the tv series event of the decade, if not of the pop culture. We already know that season 8 will show the biggest battle ever shot (in episode 3 if everything goes according to plan) and that every episode will last over an hour. As for Brienne’s future, we do hope it will take place closer to the Iron Throne than the battlefield.

The fight will start in April 2019 on HBO.
