Another season of “Game of Thrones” is about to end. For six installments now, the hit HBO series has killed off quite a number of seemingly important characters. No one is ever safe. Who will survive and return for the show’s seventh and final season? And more importantly, who will die long before the credits roll in the finale?
The last episode of Season 6, “Winds of Winter,” is still two weeks away. But according to Yibada.com, the episode’s “most massive twists and shockers” have already been leaked online. If these leaks are proven true, two major characters are about to make their exit in the finale. Who should fans get ready to bid adieu to?
If the rumors are to be believed, two sons will die: Tommen Baratheon and Rickon Stark. Tommen currently sits on the Iron Throne. Rickon, on the other hand, is being held captive by the Boltons up north. Winterfell and King’s Landing have both been gearing up for something big and potentially bloody all season long. Will Tommen and Rickon really meet their doom in the finale? This remains to be seen. Stay tuned for updates.
Meanwhile, another character who might also die before “Game of Thrones” Season 6 ends is Tommen’s mother, Cersei, according to Yibada.com. She is about to stand trial for her alleged crimes against the Faith. Fans have long speculated that she will turn into the Mad Queen before the series is over. However, this also remains unconfirmed.
The show’s producers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have earlier said this current installment is the show’s best season yet. “This season there is not a weak episode,” Benioff told Entertainment Weekly. “We thought at the script stage it might be our strongest season. Then the episodes came in better than we hoped … this is the best one we’ve done.”
