Kit Harrington cries in emotional trailer for 'Game of Thrones' documentary 'The Last Watch'
Next Sunday HBO will release the final episode of epic fantasy series and pop culture phenomenon Game of Thrones. Finally, the sprawling story will come to an end, and we'll see who lives, who dies, and who sits in the world's most uncomfortable chair. Will the episode get effusive praise like Breaking Bad's finale or blistering criticism like Dexter's finale? Time will tell!
But regardless of whether you like or dislike a TV show, one thing cannot be denied: A lot of people worked their ass to produce it. Writers, actors, costume designers, travel coordinators, make-up artists, cinematographers, lighters, sound engineers, directors, script supervisors, producers, editors, special effects technicians, production assistants and more collaborated to turn bring an artistic vision to life. And yeah, sometimes a Starbucks coffee cup accidentally ends up in the shot - cut them some slack!
Watch the trailer for HBO's Game of Thrones documentary 'The Last Watch'
Following the last episode of Game of Thrones, HBO will air 'The Last Watch,' a two-hour documentary featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the cast and crew. On Monday, the network released the trailer, which features Kit Harington crying at a table read and Emilia Clarke filming her last scene as the Mother of Dragons. After working on this show for over a decade, many people in the cast and crew feel like family.
According to a press release, The Last Watch won't just a boilerplate making-of. It chronicles "the creation of the show's most ambitious and complicated season."
"Made with unprecedented access, "Game of Thrones: The Last Watch" is an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers. Much more than a "making of" documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world — and then have to say goodbye to it."

We forgive you for that stray Starbucks cup, guys! (But I will never forgive you for not letting Jon Snow pet his direwolf, Ghost, goodbye. He was SUCH A GOOD BOY.)
The Last Watch airs on Sunday May 26.
