The urgency of Game of Thrones’ final season will preclude significant characters, but it seems we can write off an entire family. An in-demand star confirms the eighth and final season will find no time to address his ultimate fate.
Cold open or no, Game of Thrones seasons always set the tone by their first scenes. The eighth and final year may even begin with a particularly chilly reception, as reports of Season 8’s first scene could suggest Winterfell facing imminent danger.
Game of Thrones has stepped up its willingness to revisit old characters in recent years, so surely Season 8 wouldn’t leave one of our favorites hanging, right? Fear not, as a seeming casualty of that ice-breaking finale is almost certainly back for the final season.
