Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere by Sky Cable x HBO Go x Johnnie Walker
GoT Fans, winter is finally here! The claim for #TheThrone resumes with the highly anticipated Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere. It’s been a good 2 years since GoT Season 7 has ended and finally the long wait is over for the fans of the Emmy-winning fantasy series “Game of Thrones”. As the much-awaited premiere episode of the final season aired last April 15 (Monday) on HBO and its online streaming service HBO GO.
And we got the best seats with the exclusive screening of GoT Season 8, Episode 1 at the Johnny Walker House in Poblacion, Makati. Thanks to our friends from Sky Cable and HBO Go. Check out some highlights of the Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere.
What we know so far as of Game of Thrones Season 7
In the released trailer, it seemed that Jon Snow has returned to Winterfell with Daenerys after they called a truce with Cersei in the season seven finale.
Further clues of what will happen in the final run also surfaced especially about Jon Snow’s true parentage. And if Bran Stark could finally reveal it to Daenerys. Viewers also anticipate Night King’s next steps after he destroyed the Wall.
But all eyes are on who will take the Iron Throne in the end. Well, we will see as Game of Thrones Season 8 unravels.
Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere Exclusive Screening Party
GoT S8 E01 premiered 9 AM Philippine time on HBO Asia, same time as in the US. So our call time was 8 AM sharp at the Johnnie Walker House in Poblacion, Makati. Surprisingly, traffic was light and I arrived around 7AM.
Giving us all ample time to chit-chat about our GoT Season 8 predictions, get frontrow seats, and eat a hearty breakfast courtesy of Johnnie Walker House. The whole place was completely transformed into a sort of mini-film-set from Game of Thrones. Amazing!
Our excitement further overflowed as the 4G String Quartet played some GoT soundtracks. A few minutes later, Daenerys Targaryen and the Night King cosplayers arrived. They were the real deal, I tell you!
And at exactly 8:55 AM, everyone was advised to settle down in our seats. With pumping hearts and muted screams, it was time for the Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere!
Now I’m not going to be a partypooper and spill any spoilers for everyone to read. All I can say is there are definitely really exciting times ahead!
The event ended with a short program and a raffle. Where 10 lucky winners (including myself) won bottles of Johnnie Walker White.
