Game Of Thrones is one of the most popular television shows of all time - which makes the fact that it's coming to an end a little too much for some fans to bear. As the show's eighth and final season approaches, the tension is getting higher and higher. We're all hoping for a satisfying conclusion as to who is going to sit on the Iron Throne, and what's going to happen when the humans inevitably face the White Walkers.
The premiere of the eighth Game Of Thrones season took place this week, and it's safe to say it was as epic as the show itself. The internet has gone crazy over the pictures of the myriad of stars. But to many, there was one thing in particular which stood out about the snaps - and people can't stop talking about it. (Beware, those that aren't all caught up yet! There may be a few spoilers in here for you!)
We've got all the pics and the internet's best reactions right here, so enjoy!
Game Of Thrones is a truly epic television experience.It first aired in 2011, and since its premiere, the show has only gone from strength to strength, gaining both a humongous viewership and critical acclaim.
It tells the epic story of a battle for power.In Game of Thrones, a set of different families fight over who has the most righteous claim to the throne, and control over the rest.
It's primarily set in the fictional land of Westeros.But one of the biggest strengths of the show is its mirroring of real history. It's part medieval England, part ancient magic, and part soap opera.
Of course, there are some fantastical elements.For example, mythical creatures including (but not limited to) huge and terrifying dragons.
There's another supernatural menace.There are creatures called White Walkers, led by the incredibly frightening Night King, who are also making a bid for control over Westeros.
The eighth season, coming out this month, will be the show's last.And viewers can't wait to see who ends up sitting on the Iron Throne. There are still a fair few viable contenders.
Fans are pretty excited for the season to come out.Getting a new serving of your favorite show is always a good thing, but the fact that this season is the last means it'll answer all of our most pressing questions (we sincerely hope!).
But it's not all good news.We're already dreading the season being over and knowing there's no more Game Of Thrones coming ever again.
This week, the cast held a premiere party.

Some stars were looking truly fabulous.

The Skins family was in full force.

There were even some surprise attendees.

Also, Joe Jonas was there.

Also in attendance?

There were many familiar faces in attendance.
via: Getty ImagesOne was Conleth Hill, who played beloved character Varys, one of the most original (and dastardly) of the series.
Charles Dance made an appearance.
via: Getty ImagesDance played one of the show's greatest villains, Tywin Lannister, who met one of the cruellest ends in the shows history.
And you won't be ready to see this...
via: Getty ImagesNed Stark was there! The death of this original character (played by Sean Bean) was one of the turning points in the show, and arguably the cause of everything that has happened since.
The event was undoubtedly star-studded.
via: Getty ImagesAnother of the show's biggest stars (and we mean this quite literally) is Thor Bjornsonn, who plays The Mountain.
Bjornsonn gave us one of the best moments of the evening.

Luckily, this time there was a different ending.
via: Getty ImagesThis picture of the pair of on-screen enemies hugging it out is massively heartwarming.
But there was one photo that really got people talking...
via: Getty ImagesThor Bjornsonn was pictured alongside his girlfriend - and the picture looks pretty bizarre. The star is a whopping six foot nine, compared to his girlfriend's petite five foot two frame.
And another incredible image has surfaced.
Overall, these pictures have got us feeling all emo.
via: Getty ImagesWe can't believe what an amazing journey we've been on with these characters - and we're even more in shock about the fact that it's coming to an end. Sob!
