HOLD IT RIGHT THERE. We know how excruciating it is to have to wait so long for another season of Game of Thrones. We’re talking over a year here, and it’s even harder because this isn’t just any season — we’re waiting for the FINAL season of Game of Thrones. But, for those who need a lil’ sumpin’ sumpin’ to hold them over, we have some huge news…

It appears that Winterfell is going up in FLAMES 🔥🔥🔥.

A video of the Winterfell set shows fire everywhere, inside AND outside the castle, and it’s seriously making us so nervous. As fansite Watchers on the Wall points out, we can expect serious trouble in Winterfell. And like, we knew trouble was on the way because, hello, the Night King and his army wreaked havoc at the Wall in the Season 7 finale. (Thanks, Viserion.)

Still, seeing House Stark’s ancestral home like that is heartbreaking. Especially because Jon and Sansa just took back control of Winterfell, and the Stark kids have finally reunited after years of being apart. When will they catch a break?! Literally never??!!! The night is dark and full of terrors, indeed.

Images from the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale are still freshly seared into our brains. And judging from those final scenes, the fire could be caused by either: 1) the Night King and the undead Viserion’s attack, or 2) Cersei’s forces from the south. Let’s also not rule out the possibility that it could be the doing of the Starks themselves as some sort of trickery.

Whatever the case, we’re D-E-V-A-S-T-A-T-E-D already.

It would be gut-wrenching to watch the once-unassailable castle turn into a pile of rubble, but at least we have more than a year to prepare ourselves. Hey! It looks like there is an upside to waiting for what feels like forever for more Game of Thrones.
