The Game of Thrones creators have hidden finale spoilers in this Spotify playlist

This is HUGE.

Game of Thrones season eight is on its way (next week, people!!) and we officially can’t wait.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that our past few months have been dominated by Game of Thrones news and updates, from the emergence of the teaser trailer to theories about what’s to come in Westeros.

Will Daenerys have Jon Snow’s baby? Will Jaime Lannister switch sides? Will the prophecy come true? And who is going to end up on the iron throne?

All is about to be revealed, but for eagle-eyed viewers, there is a chance to work out some theories before GoT returns to our screens.

David Benioff and DB Weiss, the show’s creators, have a Game of Thrones Spotify playlist, named ‘Songs of Ice and Fire’, something they updated this week, renaming it to – wait for it – ‘The End Is Coming’.

But there’s more to this playlist than meets the eye, with the creators telling Spotify’s blog that the playlist had some hidden meanings.

‘The answer to the ending is 100 percent hidden in the playlist choices,’ the duo explained. ’No one will believe us, but it’s true. We were looking for songs that made us feel the way the show made us feel. There’s variety in there – Rage is not Johnny Cash. But they both have a deep inherent power.’
