‘Game of Thrones’ anticipation is building across the Twitterverse

A scene from Game of Thrones Season 8.

There are two types of people in this world: those who are tuning in to watch the first episode of the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” tonight, and those who inexplicably feel the need to inform everyone that they won’t be watching.

You can place us solidly in the former group. Following tonight’s season-eight premiere, we’ll be posting a recap and review of the show here at Triblive.com, but for now, let’s scour the Twitterverse and see how fans are preparing…

Winter is literally coming to Chicago, with snow in today’s forecast for the Midwest city. One fan posted this beautiful piece of fan art showing the Night King riding his dead horse with zombie dragon Viserion in his wake.

This sums up our feelings pretty well.

One clever Photoshopper reunited “House Stark” in the most hilarious way possible.

Alright, Masters tournament…. we see what you did there…

Then there was that time Arby’s made a dragon out of sandwich boxes.

One fan had a cheeky take on the first meeting between Bran Stark and the man who put him in a wheelchair back in the very first episode of the series, Ser Jaime Lannister.

A homemade intro using acoustic guitar and Funko Pop characters? Count us in.

And finally, a beautiful and terrifying piece of fan art with a quote from the show that could almost be the series’ thesis statement.

And all of this doesn’t even include the “Bar of Thrones” in Downtown Pittsburgh, complete with its own weirwood tree!

“Game of Thrones” final season premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday on HBO.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
