The final season of Game of Thrones is about to come to a close, and this season has definitely had fans talking.

Whether they love the wrap-up to the eight-season-long saga or they are disappointed by it, fans will have the opportunity to see how it all came together. Iconic moments from the season like the Battle of Winterfell, Emilia Clarke's final shot as Daenerys Targaryen, and an emotional table read of the final episode are all featured in a documentary set to air May 26. 

The final episode of the series will air on HBO on May 19, so there's still time to gather your theories before finding out how the fantasy comes to a close. 

Fans deserve one final look before closing the Game of Thrones chapter for good, and they're getting just that.

The trailer for the upcoming documentary The Last Watch is an emotional ride. Each episode of the eighth season of the show has been action-packed and filled to the brim with epic moments (both good and bad). 

"Every episode has as much in it as one feature film," someone says about the season in the trailer. "It's hard to say goodbye to everybody," another person says about the difficult ending. 

The trailer shows Emilia Clarke hugging one of the writers, D.B. Weiss, after wrapping her last shot on the show.

"That was Emilia's last shot on Game of Thrones," someone says, as Clarke and Weiss embrace on set. Emotional goodbyes are sure to be rampant throughout the two-hour documentary. According to HBO, the documentary will be both humorous and heartbreaking. Fans are already breaking down just thinking about the last episode. 

Fans aren't the only ones getting emotional — Kit Harrington (who plays Jon Snow) fully teared up during a table reading. 

This gif of Harrington crying during one of the final readings has everyone feeling teary. Well, except maybe Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark) and Rory McCann (who plays The Hound) — they can be seen laughing at their costar's emotional outburst during the reading. After nearly 10 years, it's safe to assume that at this point the cast and crew are as close as family. 

Following each episode of this season, an explainer video has been posted to the show's YouTube channel. 

While this two-hour documentary will give an in-depth look at the whole season; so far each episode has its own reveal via the show's YouTube account.

In this 35-minute recap, the writers, directors, and cinematographers go into detail about how they made season eight episode five happen. The special effects of the fiery episode are breathtaking, and regardless of opinions on the storyline, the effort it took to produce an episode of this magnitude is impressive. 

Clarke and the writers also briefly discuss why they chose to make Daenerys turn "mad" after all. 

An Emilia Clarke fan account shared the trailer, about which fans are already shattered.

One fan page for the Targaryen actor posted the trailer and captioned it simply, "I'm sad." This is truly the end of an era for fans who have invested years in the show, and for the actors who have spent nearly a decade working on the project. For most of the cast, this show was their first "real" gig. 

The poster for the film evokes the GOT medieval mood with a twist.

Director of the GOT documentary Jeanie Finlay shared an image of the doc's movie poster. The poster reads, "A farewell to Westeros with the people who built the realm." As seen in the episode reveals, it's clear that creating this show required immense amount of work from all sorts of people including set designers, costume designers, extras, stunt doubles, not to mention the directors, writers, and actors. 

Hopefully we can expect some humorous behind-the-scenes moments like this one between Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner.

As the series comes to a close and spoilers are no longer a problem, actors have been sharing their own behind-the-scenes content. Williams (who plays Arya Stark) posted this video of her on-screen sister messing around on the Winterfell set. She shared it just after her character's triumphant defeat of the undead villain. 

"How am feeling after that episode. not today bby," she captioned the post. 

Or wholesome, loving moments between the cast like this one. 

Clarke shared this photo with costars Peter Dinklage (who plays Tyrion Lannister) and Jason Momoa (who plays Khal Drogo). "Did I just stumble upon the truth here?! The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea...," Clarke captioned this photo, poking fun at the infamous rogue Starbucks cup incident. 

The documentary will feel surreal, as the actors move in and out of character during the gory scenes of the show. It's easy to forget that the Mother of Dragons is actually just your everyday British actor. 

Or maybe the doc will catch cast members snoozing on set. 

When work requires you to film over the course of 55 nights, you can expect a few snoozers loose on set. This hilarious image of Turner catching a few Z's was her way of introducing season eight: "In honour of the final season of Thrones premiering tonight .... Here’s a picture of me asleep on set," she wrote on her Instagram post. 

The preview for the final episode is, of course, dark and mysterious. 

It's impossible to tell how the season will end at this point. Game of Thrones has proven you can't predict anything that will happen. It's what has made audiences stick around for eight seasons over the course of nearly a decade. It's heartening to know that even after the jawdropping series finale, there's one more piece of the GOT world to look forward to.
