"I know, right?" Emilia Clarke was seen mouthing as Kit Harington discovered for the first time how the show would end. Rogue water bottle in Game of Thrones finale * Game Of Thrones: In defence of Daenerys Targaryen * Game of Thrones finale - we predict the end * Who will rule on the Iron Throne?

From set designs to location managements and costumes, The Last Watch truly chronicled the making of GoT - something which could only be a result of the cast and crew's labours of love. While many behind-the-scenes moments were shared, one scene stuck out to many fans: The cast's final table read of the script. But one scene from the Last Watch which is now the talk of the town is that of table read of the script. Upon realizing that he's to covertly stab his character's queen and lover, Harington puts his hands on his head, gasps and leans back in his chair, before turning red and tearing up.

The cast applauds, then the camera shows Harington crying as he claps and Clarke using the sleeve of her shirt to wipe away tears of her own.

"This literally sums up Kit and I's friendship", said Clarke, who shared that she intentionally sat opposite Harington at the table so she could "watch him compute all of this".


By now, everyone's either accepted the Game of Thrones outcome for what it was despite glaring season 8 problems, or they've blown off some steam by signing a petition for a rewrite.

"I feel like my heart is breaking".

The GoT producer said: "Standing before the Iron Throne, Dany steps forward and kisses the man she loves, the ideal kiss". It's been my life, and this will always be the greatest thing I'll ever do and be a part of.
