No character is safe as Game of Thrones heads into its eighth and final season. HBO’s hit fantasy drama is famous for killing off major characters and fans are bracing for the worst as the battle for the Iron Throne enters its final phase. But did GOT star Lena Headey just drop a massive spoiler about Season 8?
Headey actively updates her fans on social media about her time on set. Four years ago, the actress dropped a major teaser about Oberyn Martell’s (Pedro Pascal) death that most fans completely missed.
In Season 4, Oberyn fought against The Mountain on behalf of Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), who had been accused of murdering Joffrey (Jack Gleeson). Oberyn fought well, but The Mountain ultimately killed him by pressing his thumbs into Oberyn’s eyes and crushing his head.
A few months prior to the episode, Headey shared a photo of herself pressing her thumbs into Pascal’s eyes. She didn’t say anything in the caption that tipped fans off, but in hindsight it was a massive spoiler.
Fans, of course, are keeping a close eye on Headey’s current social media posts as Game of Thrones continues production of its final season. With fan theories running at an all-time high, Express reports that another cast member recently dropped a bombshell about how everyone might die in the coming season.
In a recent interview, Nathalie Emmanuel (who plays Missandei) revealed that most of our favorite characters will not make it out alive when Season 8 comes to an end.
The actress referred to the final season as “survival of the fittest” before explained how “there’s only a few left standing — anyone and everyone can die.” Emmanuel added that fans should “think big and multiple it by a billion.”
If fans aren’t frustrated enough about how the show will wrap, even some of the stars of Game of Thrones don’t know how it will end. Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, just revealed that producers have filmed several different endings to throw everyone off.
The actress admitted that she honestly doesn’t know which ending they’ll use, which means everyone’s fate is in the balance. That includes Daenerys and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), who are the current frontrunners to rule Westeros.
HBO has not announced an official premiere date for the final season of Game of Thrones. Filming is expected to continue through the summer and the show is expected to air sometime in 2019.
