Kit Harington says Rose Leslie didn’t talk to him for days after he spoiled the “groundbreaking” Season 8 ending

kitrose

Kit Harington still hasn’t slipped up any juicy plot details about season 8 but from the way he talks about the series finale, it sounds like we’re really in for a brutal, cathartic, heartbreaking, beautiful rollercoaster this April. In a recent interview, Kit Harington described the conclusion to the show as “groundbreaking” and said Rose Leslie had an … interesting reaction to hearing spoilers.

Digital Spy reports that, while chatting with Tom Green and Daisy Maskell on KISS Breakfast, Harington admitted to telling his wife, Rose Leslie, how the eight season saga wraps up.

“She wouldn’t talk to me for about three days and she’d asked!” Harington said.

What exactly that implies about the finale is up for interpretation. When asked if he feels happy about the ending, Harington replied:

“It’s a weird one to answer, that. I can’t really answer whether I’m happy or not. I don’t think it’s about happy or sad really. I’m satisfied with what they did, but I don’t know whether I’ll be really satisfied until I see it.”

That being said, Harington seems to be enjoying the quiet before the storm and relishing his superior knowledge over all of us smallfolk.

“It’s quite nice walking around, which will only happen for a few months before everyone’s seen it, knowing. I know and no-one else does. I know how it wraps up,” he said. “Yeah, I think it’s gonna be groundbreaking.”

    1. So basically it ends with Jon and Dany getting married and living happily ever after.

      Just kidding…

      In all honesty I really have no clue about how it’s going to end. And I’m happy that I don’t.

    2. King in the North East:
      Jon and Cercei get married.

      Calling it.

      That would suck! Cersei doesn’t deserve anything resembling a happy* ending, especially one that is likely to put her in essentially the same spot she started the series.

      * not that being married to Jon would make her happy per se. Simply living is a ‘happy ending’ for her.

    3. If this is true, they need a marriage counsellor. Stat.

      So it looks like until the series starts we will get miscellaneous interviews with actors saying nothing or with mild trolling.

      Will even one of them break formation and say, “I will be ending my acting career and going into life as a monk (or lady monk) who is committed to silent meditation. However, as my final act of speech, let me bring joy to millions – this is how GOT ends.” Then they spill the beans and run off to Mount Athos or to some other silent holy, retreat.

      Kit? Maybe you? Emilia? Some-one?

    4. It was groundbreaking when they killed their lead in Season 1. Shows never kill the leads 9 episodes in,

      It will be groundbreaking when the whole premise of the show,. “The Game of Thones” ends up meaning diddly squat and never mattered to begin with. All will lose.

      Or at least that’s my cheery read on the term 😛

    5. “What is dead may never die”
      Valar Morghulis “All men must die”
      Time and time again, all the way through all 7 Seasons so far these are the two quotes we hear all the time.
      That is how it ends 🤫.

    6. Probably just an actor answer and Rose never give him a silent treatment. The only person she would be silencing is D&D.

      What if the show ends with everybody dying except pregnant Cercei. We could have a scene where see sails away on a boat, seeing everybody getting killed by the NK. And she will sail west.

      But the question is more about who or what was Rose Leslie upset about. Was in Jon, Dany, maybe something else. What if the NK wins.

      Or maybe she just was upset that she heard the ending but she rather just wanted to wait. She could have just been teasing Kit and maybe she just wanted an cryptic answer of him.

      That was my reaction too.

      I think even at this point we can conclude the ending won’t make everyone happy and quite likely we will lose at least one of the “good” guys as well most of the “bad”, if you can easilly categorise them that simply.

      This is what I figured after he ended his sentence with “when she asked.” I read it more that she was upset he’s spoiled the ending and she hadn’t actually wanted to know. Either one is a bit strange, hopefully just an exaggeration from Kit as three days of silent treatment is a bit dramatic. Then again, they are actors, maybe drama is par for the course.

    10. I watched this interview and the way I took it was Rose was mad he actually told her. It wasn’t that she was mad with how it ended. She was asking him to tell her but she didn’t think he really would. I think she felt sullied and mad he actually told her.

    11. I am not sure it is translating very well. It’s something I/we say all the time, it’s a figure of speech, that’s all, nothing sinister.

    12. Sansa’s Knight,

      I’m not going to expect it. When TD3 ends there are still around 6-7 weeks to go before the GoT premiere. As of now the online HBO schedule is showing nothing for the Sundays after TD at primetime on Sundays. My take on that is that they will just be filling in… In other words, they have nothing major to promote between TD and GoT. THAT is the time when they will start really ramping up the promo for Thrones. Their biggest show ever is entering the final season and they’ll have about six weeks to focus on it exclusively.

      I’m remaining optimistic. The first season 7 trailer aired two months before the premier date so I think it’s likely we can get a GoT Superbowl trailer or one next weekend. 🤞🏽🤞🏽

      First Season 7 trailer was May 24th 2017 and the premiere was July 16th. That’s 51 days .before the premiere. We’re still a few weeks away from that. We’re at 70 days. I’m still going late this month after True Detective season 3 finale or early next month.

    16. aiad: Jon Snow kills Dany.

      Euron kills Cersei, then someone kills him.

      Jon marries Tyrion and they rule Kingslanding together.

      All quite believeable – but what about the succession?

    17. Jack Bauer 24,

      Saner Half hasn’t seen The Handmaid’s Tale yet, so when the promo began he started freaking out and hollering, “This had better not be some Trump fake pro-life thing!!!” I was laughing so hard.

    18. What the hell was that Bud Light advert? If they’re going to be associated with something, why pick something pretending to be beer?

      Or spend the actual millions on DIREWOLVES IN THE SHOW. 😆

    19. Jack Bauer 24,

      I doubt they spent $15 million; according to something I read earlier today the cost of a 30-second ad is $5.25 million, and the TV ad might have been 10 seconds tops (HBO posted the extended version on FB and Twitter). Clob?

    20. Thanks for all that posted that!

      Hats off to the GOT marketing folk…they are doing a great job of teasing season 8 without giving away anything….

      Again, well done. Nice job!

      I have never seen the Bud knight before so that was fun – although I am not sure what was the story/what happened in the advert story. Why kill the bud guy?

      But that dragon CGI was very very handsome..(and I hate the GOT dragons as a matter of principle). Very good CGI, best looking dragon yet!

    21. Mango,

      It’s a series of stupid-silly commercials that’s been running for a while. Saner Half loves American football (although he’s much more passionate about college than professional), so he totally loved the ad.

    22. By the old gods and the new, we are all such NERRRRRDS. A silly 10-second ad, and here we all are, frothing at the mouth like rabid direwolves.

      “GIVE US A REAL TRAILER! GIVE US DIREWOLVES! WHY BUD LIGHT? OH, THE HUMANITY!!!”

    23. I saw the thumbnail of The Mountain on the GoT twitter and was hyped for a second, but then realized what I’ve been preaching about there won’t be a trailer until end of the month or March so I guess I can’t be upset. Maybe I’m just cynical lol.

    24. I liked it! We’re still 10 weeks from premiere so I’m not looking at it as a replacement for a trailer but as something extra. They’ll have a lot of time yet to promote in about a month.

      I hope HBO didn’t pay a dime for that GoT ripoff beer commercial.

      I second what Sue said: “We don’t want a bad beer commercial @HBO, we want a teaser or trailer with actual footage from the new season of @GameOfThrones.”

    26. I guess that’s why the GoT FB unpinned and removed the “Crypts of Winterfell” teaser. The bud light ad is their pinned post now.

    27. Wolfish,

      I feel no hype for the coming final season and I’m not exactly sure why HBO is dropping the ball at the conclusion of it all. Viewers have been faithful for 7 years and waited 2 whole years to see the ending but it’s all fizzled out, for me and I’m sure a few others, because we haven’t gotten any real nuggets to hold us over like we have in years past. At least none I’m aware of. Oh, some crypt scene with statues that nobody knows is just a promo or actual scene, probably the former. Meh.

    28. Cersei marries the Night King, who, it turns out, is a Targaryen with a better claim to the throne than either Jon or Dany, and they rule over the Seven Kingdoms for a long, prosperous, peaceful time. The end!

        Quote  Reply

    29. Exactly, they can keep releasing these teasers, raise awareness of the show returning and give zero plot details away so everyone is happy. Given the recent comments from D&D about not wanting to release a trailer if they had their way and James Hibberd about not expecting too much within a short period I’d guess we won’t see a trailer until towards the end of the month and we will probably only get one this time around vs the two trailers we’ve had in the past. When we do finally get a trailer I would expect it to be similar to Avengers End game where we get very little in terms of plot points too.
