The cast of Game of Thrones, like, everyone who has ever been part of the cast, assembled in New York City for the eighth and final season premiere.

From Ned Stark to Joffrey Baratheon, from Ygritte to The Mountain, from Khal Drogo to Margaery Tyrell, they all came out to celebrate the beginning of the end of the acclaimed HBO drama.

Above, see the cast—including former members like Jason Momoa, Rose Leslie, Jack Gleason and Kristian Nairn—assembled on stage for a bow before the first episode screened at New York's Radio City Musical Hall.

However, one key cast member was missing: Lena Headey. Yep, Cersei Lannister did not attend the final season premiere because of illness. She posted she was "gutted" to be missing the big gathering. "I f--king hate being sick and the timing of this is a shit bag. But...[Season eight] is the tits and so are all my cast mates and crew mates and creators...so RIDE FORTH INTO THE NIGHT AND CREATE MAYHEM...Love you beauties," she wrote on Instagram.
