Though the Game of Thrones wrap party took place last Sunday, production didn’t stop. Only a few cast members remained this week, but that’s not to say it was a private affair: appropriately enough, when season eight filming actually ended, it was at the gigantic King’s Landing set where much of the climactic action will apparently take place.
According to our sources, the last day of filming was yesterday. It’s really over—for good. Before bidding the show a final farewell, let’s catch up with the last week of filming, as well as Maisie Williams‘s heartbreaking (and a bit ominous) goodbye on social media.
As for who was left filming these scenes after most of their peers were done, rumors abound (Kit Harington is said to be one of them), but the only one we know for sure about is Maisie Williams, who left this heartfelt message on her Instagram today:
“Goodbye Belfast. Goodbye Arya. Goodbye Game of Thrones. What a joy I’ve had. Here’s to the adventures to come”.
This was followed by several hashtags, such as “last woman standing”, which could refer to Williams being the last cast member on set… or, if she meant Arya, to something more ominous. Not as ominous as her bloody shoes accompanying the message, though:
Does this mean Arya survives the final season (in which case maybe Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a pretty huge spoiler after all)? Or does it just mean that Maisie happened to be the last woman on set that day?
