The Battle of Winterfell, eight seasons in the making, graced our screens with dim lighting and tons of blood.

#farewell ???? by @pilouasbaek Its been so touching to read how Theon has affected fans of GoT. To be given the opportunity to challenge and question people’s emotions through a characters journey that was given to me by D&D and George R Martin… is something I am extremely thankful for. What an honour it has been. Thank you x
