The big night is almost round the corner! After years of wondering who will end up on the Iron Throne, Sunday will (hopefully) provide many answers during the final episode of Game of Thrones Season 8. People across the globe will be having watch parties and/or staying up all night to dissect the episode. In fact, according to People, a new survey predicts that 10.7 million people will be calling in sick on Monday for work.
According to a poll,millions of people will call in sick
The poll, which was conducted by Workforce Institute at Kronos, suggests that millions of people will either call in sick or use a last minute vacation day on Monday, May 20th in order to recuperate from the final episode.
“For those who do make it into the office, the poll suggests employees who watched the Game of Thrones Season finale will arrive late, work remotely or would be less productive than usual overall,” People explains.
Many fans have already taken to Twitter to prove the theory correct

Who will live and who will end up on the Iron Throne?
The big question remains of who will live and who will end up on the Iron Throne. If you’re worried that your remaining favorites won’t make it, you’re feelings are valid. The series’ writer and producer, Bryan Cogman, recently shared that audience opinion does not factor into their decisions.
“We just have to tell the story we want to tell and feel the rhythm of the story as we’re laying it out,” Cogman explained. “There aren’t any conversations about what people are going to think. If it feels right, that’s what we do.
The season finale of Game of Thrones airs Sunday night on HBO TV at 9pm EST.
