Our last trip to Westeros was just a few weeks ago, and life, as we knew it on Sundays, has not been the same.

Game of Thrones is one of HBO’s latest and greatest shows. Despite the backlash from the internet, the series itself wrapped up pretty nicely. Even though we still do not have the final book to compare and contrast notes, all in all, this was an amazing and epic ride. Since Episode 1  till the end, we have felt every emotion that can be depicted and then some that we had to create after some of the visuals from the show. Would I like to see some spin-off shows HECK YEAH, but I am utterly content with the mystery of what is yet to come for all who survived the Game of Thrones.

The Digital Download version of the season will include all six episodes (which most are feature length), plus the season 8 behind-the-scenes documentary, The Last Watch. If you have not seen this it is an amazing look at all the painstaking hours that were spent making this show what it was and to see what all the behind the scenes people did makes you applaud their work. It aired on HBO the week after the series finale.

The Digital Download will also include a couple of new features:

The Final Season: The cast and crew of Game of Thrones reflect on the final season of HBO’s epic, Emmy winning series. Interviews include showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Kit Harington, and many others. I LOVE watching Dinklage and Harington talk about the series because they are so passionate about it, definitely a MUST watch feature.

The Long NightGame of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss along with many of the major stars look back at the colossal filming that was the Battle of Winterfell in Season 8, episode 3. This special spotlights the weaponry, lighting, special effects and more that went into the making of this unforgettable episode. After seeing all that went into this episode you have to tip your hat to all that were involved!

Game of Thrones Season 8 is now available on digital download, go get yours today to check out all the excellent special features!
