It is also said that Unsullied extras have been filming in recent weeks at Toome, Northern Ireland, with everyone being supplied with dragonglass-tipped spears.
Obtained by Watchers on the Wall, a slew of photos taken from the Titanic Quarter in Belfast, Northern Ireland set feature a gigantic mystery set being constructed. The site notes that the new set seems to look like a common city architecture as the tower now features window frames. This new progress appears to rule out the possibility that the set is for Red Keep or Harrenhal.
In addition, the site states that the gate arch at the great defensive wall looks like it's supposed to be in ruins. Putting all the pieces together, fans come with their best guess that we may be seeing the construction of one of the seven main entrances of King's Landing. While it is impossible to be sure of everything at this point, fans assume that the set is where a battle sequence is going to take place.
It appears that Belfast is not the only set of the cult series which seemingly is poised to have a battle sequence. New set photos see that Moneyglass, the Winterfell set, has white tarps all over the place, in preparation for fake snow. In addition, sources claim that Unsullied extras have been filming in recent weeks at Toome, Northern Ireland, which is just a stone's throw from the Winterfell set.

What's more interesting is that the Unsullied army has been apparently supplied with dragonglass-tipped spears. It is likely that the army is poised to face the White Walkers and his army of the death in probably one of the biggest showdowns which the upcoming season 8 will feature.
It remains to be seen whether these fan theories hold some truth in them. Either way, should the rumor saying each episode of season 8 will cost up to $15 million be true, the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" surely will offer something which will blow the fans' minds.
