People Already Can’t Deal With the “Game of Thrones” Finale and It’s Relatable AF
Game of Thrones is down to its final seven episodes. Next season (the shortest yet, with just six episodes) will be the show’s last, and while there’s still one installment left in the current seventh season, people already can’t deal with the fact that it’s coming to a close.
This year saw a surprising shift in the way the show depicts women, a divisive Ed Sheeran cameo, an awkward-AF Stark family reunion, and, of course, endless fan theories to go along with all of it. It’s clear from Twitter that many viewers are still trying to get over what happened on the penultimate episode of the season, and the looming finale is not helping.

Others are behind on episodes, making it even more difficult for them to come to terms with the timeline.
Finally watched last week's #GameOfThrones and I can't deal with next week being the season finale 😤 — feeling sad

Some are getting nervous just watching the trailer for the finale (same, TBH).

And others are demanding more episodes, like, now.

One fan suggested a 10-week-long finale, which, honestly, we could get on board for.

Although, that might be a bit much for those who are sick with anticipation.
Okay so like. I'm sick. Game of Thrones literally has me…SICK. I can't even fathom what the season finale is gonna bring.

Not even the Lord of Light can help us now.

No premiere date has been set for the final six episodes, but in a recent interview with Collider, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (AKA Jaime Lannister) said they go back to set in October and will hopefully have scripts in hand in the coming weeks. If that’s the case, we can hopefully look forward to a 2018 air date.
In the meantime, when it feels like you just can’t deal with the end being near, we suggest channeling your feelings into DIYing the most epic GoT group costume. Winter is coming, after all.
