The Most Important Photos From The Last-Ever Game Of Thrones Season Premiere

Almost all your faves (and least faves) were there!

The cast of Game of Thrones celebrated their Season 8 red carpet premiere in New York City on Wednesday night (April 3), bringing together fan favorites from the entire series — both living and dead.

It was truly a night not to be missed. Just ask Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister; she was "gutted" and "heartbroken" to have to stay home sick as all her castmates got together for one final round of fun. Sophie Turner split her time between Joe Jonas and Maisie Williams while Emilia Clarke posed with Kit Harington. Even blood-thirsty Joffrey dared to show his face on the same carpet as the beloved Ned Stark. (Kidding!)

So, as we anxiously await the return of HBO's award-winning drama for its final season on Sunday, April 14, take a look through the most important photos from the night below.

    Sophie supported Joe by appearing in the latest JoBros music video; Joe supports Sophie by coming to her show's premiere. What a trade-off.

    Emilia complemented her Daenerys braid with a poetry-embroidered Valentino ballgown. "Leave your door open for me / I might sleepwalk into your dream," it read.

    Dany and Tyrion may be in a complicated place after the Season 7 finale, but things seem just peachy between the two actors who portray them!

    Just kidding, Kit's actual date was Jon Snow's former love and his real-life wife, Rose Leslie.

    No fictional man can come between these two self-assured women!

    You don't get a custom couture scrunchie and not rewear it every chance you get, OK? (Yes, his wife Lisa Bonet was there too.)

    Speaking of throwback characters we loved, remember when the most shocking thing to happen on the show was Ned Stark's beheading?

    Joffrey may have been The Worst, but look how humbled Jack Gleeson looks.

  • Natalie Dormer

    Margaery Tyrell is no longer with us, but Natalie Dormer certainly worked those pockets like a queen.

    Is this a preview of the Jaime and Brienne reunion we need to happen in Season 8?
