The Game of Thrones finale will air on Sunday, and fans are already wondering which of their favorite characters will make it to next season. Everyone who watches the show will tell you not to get attached to any characters (even main characters) because they can and will be killed off… one by one.
[Mild Spoilers Ahead]
According to Hollywood Life, Jon Snow’s character might be the next one to go (last week, Snow’s lover, Ygritte, was killed). Actor Kit Harington (who plays Snow) didn’t want to give too much away about the season finale of the hit HBO show, but during a recent chat with Kelly & Michael, he mentioned that he might not be back for season 5.
“[Jon’s] idea is that he’s going to kill [Mance]. It’s not a particularly good plan, really, but I think it’s the only thing he thinks he can do. I don’t want to tell you what happens because I may be out of a job soon.”
The Game of Thrones finale will undoubtedly be epic. Most believe that someone will die, but who? Could it be Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage)? Or perhaps The Hound or Jorah Mormont. Those who have read the books will likely tell you what happens, but writers of the show have supposedly deviated from the original “script.” For instance, there have been rumors that Tyrion’s parts have been altered because of his popularity. The chances of him dying on the finale? Slim.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the Season 4 finale (titled “The Children”) will be one to remember. There are two things that have been confirmed at this point. The finale will touch on every story line that you’ve seen so far, and there will be some new “major drama” introduced (that will likely be the focus of Season 5).
Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss said the following in a statement:
“It’s the best finale we’ve ever done, bar none. The performances from our cast, the direction from Alex Graves, the VFX work, the new [music] cues from Ramin Djawadi—all of it came together in perhaps the finest hour we’ve produced. We’re immensely proud of ‘The Children.’ And a little intimidated by the episode, because now we have to get back to the business of season five and figure out a way to top it.”
As previously reported by The Inquisitr,Game of Thrones recently surpassed The Sopranos for most watched series on HBO, with over 18 million viewers tuning in on average. The finale (which is 66 minutes long) will undoubtedly produce record-breaking numbers. Will you be tuning in?
