The end is near for Game of Thrones

Sure, we have to wait many moons to actually see these final six episodes, but at least for now we do have the cast's cryptic quotes on what it was like to say goodbye to their characters. Every few weeks, while promoting some other project, some Game of Thrones cast member or another says something that practically shakes us to our core as we try to predict how this thing might end. 

Below, you'll find the most telling quotes so far about the final days of filming for the series, and the final scenes of some of our favorite characters. No hints yet on who might actually win the throne in the end, but there are definitely a few ominous clues as to who might not survive the game at all. 

Winter is coming, and it sounds like things are going to get emotional.

Game of Thrones will return to HBO in 2019, though when in 2019 is still a question. 

Originally, we were promised "the first half," but now the wait could last until well into the summer, due to this six-episode season being "the biggest thing" the show has ever done, taking over a year in production in Belfast. 

Basically, it's going to be worth the wait.
