Warning: spoilers for Game of Thrones ahead. Avert your gaze if you wish to remain blissfully ignorant. A Game of Thrones actor may have given us a slight clue as to the content of Season 8 with an errant Instagram photo. The photo has now been deleted. Wilf Scolding is a relatively new addition to the Game of Thrones family, having played Rhaegar Targaryen in a crucial flashback (R + L = J, google it). Scolding recently posted a picture on Instagram of himself outside a Belfast hotel. Belfast being where much of Game of Thrones is filmed, this of course led to speculation that Rhaegar will be returning to our screens in Season 8. Rhaegar’s in town?! More flashbacks!#GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/q7SUvldHbt — A Red Priestess (@a_red_priestess) April 30, 2018 Flashbacks would probably be a good assumption if Rhaegar really is coming back, considering he got splatted by Robert's war hammer at the Battle of the Trident. Perhaps we'll get more juicy family secrets revealed to us through Bran's creepy time-travel powers. Who knows! WATCH: 'Game of Thrones' star Natalie Dormer is in a new Amazon original
They secretly tied the knot last month after 12 years together – but Jason Momoa has had his eye on Lisa Bonet for a lot longer than that.
Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet were believed to have married in November 2007 – but now they have made it official. The former Game of Thrones star has wed Lisa Bonet in a secret ceremony.

According to Morning Call, one of the show’s producers, Casey Bloys, dropped the news when quizzed over how the HBO show intends to avoid the leaks that happened across season seven. “I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens,” Bloys revealed. It’s a frank assessment of arguably one of he biggest shows ever, and with the final season on the way it’s likely that hacks and episode leaks won’t be the only problem the production faces.
As Hand of the Queen and closest adviser to Daenerys and a blood relative to opposing, self-appointed Queen Cersei, he’s in something of a unique position. Early on Tyrion dares his sister to kill him (at the hands of her zombified monster, The Mountain) but she doesn’t. Tyrion admits to hating Cersei (which was always hard to hide), while her loathing for him is clear too.
It’s come around quicker than usual, mainly down to a shortened season, but Game of Thrones is over for another year. Its time shifts haven’t felt as epic and drawn-out as previous seasons, with many of the elements that made Game of Thrones such a gripping show, such as unexpected deaths and massive revelations, seemingly absent. Despite seeing other big names meet for the first time this season – specifically Daenerys and Jon – here we have Cersei Lannister thrown into the mix when her, Jon, and Dany, Tyrion, Jaime, et al meet at King’s Landing Dragon Pit to discuss the very real threat of the White Walkers’ undead army.

The dust (and mountains of ash) have finally settled after this week’s Game of Thrones, but there was much more to it than a heart-in-mouth final 15 minutes. Following on from Jon’s first meeting with Daenerys, he and his men have begun mining the dragon glass on the island of Dragonstone. Significantly, after The Mother of Dragons questions history, Jon reveals the Children of the Forest and the first men came together to forge an alliance against a common enemy: the Whitewalkers.
