John Bradley has promised more spectacular scenes in “Game of Thrones” season 7, which he believes are going to trump the previous seasons. The actor spoke about how the ending of the show is a mystery even to them because they don’t know what kind of a story they are telling.

After giving the fans heart racing scenes in episodes like “Hardhome” and “Battle of Bastards,” the producers are preparing for something bigger next year. In an interview with Digital Spy, Bradley (Samwell Tarly) teased that the show will be “more spectacle than ever before.” The actor believes that some scenes are so big in scope and scale that they are “unfilmable.”

However, Bradley has full confidence in the producers and directors in bringing those challenging scenes on paper to life. He pointed out that this feeling of scenes being “unfilmable” is there every year, but the team has managed to deliver year after year, with each new season getting better than the one before in terms of the visuals.

There are some major battles coming up in “Game of Thrones” season 7, both in the north and in the south. The grownup dragons are expected to play a more active role in the battles going forward.

After reading the script of previous seasons, Bradley apparently said to himself “They've really stitched themselves up here, because there's no way they can get this on screen.” He added that after a few months he would see those very scenes on screen.

Talking about how the show will end, Bradley said that it is interesting because even most of the cast members don’t know how the story ends. They don’t know what kind of story they are telling, and who will win or lose in the end. The actor further elaborated his point by saying that they don’t know if this story is about an “indictment of how bad people can triumph if good men do nothing, or a redemptive story about good triumphing over evil.” So, the ending is still a mystery.

Bradley confirmed that “Game of Thrones” season 7 will have only seven episodes. The final season of the show will air in 2018, and will have only six episodes.
