Game of Thrones season 8 is still shrouded in mystery, but season 7 has left us with lots (and lots!) of questions for the final six episodes.

This past season of Game of Thrones may have been surprisingly generous with its revelations, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t hungry for more. Sure, now we know that the Wall has, in fact, fallen, and that Jon Snow Targaryen’s parents are Rhaegar and Lyanna. We know how Littlefinger gets his comeuppance, how to kill a dragon, and where Gendry has been this whole time (more on that in a bit though.)

Still, all of the answers provided by season 7 have only birthed more questions for Game of Thrones season 8. As the earth of the fandom stops shaking and we all settle in for the long wait — the final season may arrive as late as 2019! — there are still quite a few things we desperately need to know.

  1. Is everyone going to die?
  2. Okay, probably not, but just how many people are going to die?

  11. Which part of this knowledge bomb will freak them out more — the incest, or the succession?
  12. Will the new, very sexy couple break up in Game of Thrones season 8?
  13. Or will they just say, “Screw it, we’re both hot, let’s do this!”?
  14. Are we supposed to feel good or bad about this whole thing?
  15. Hey, where’s Ghost?
