It feels like only yesterday that we were all picking our jaws up after seeing the treasonous crows sticking Jon Snow like a pig and leaving him to die in the snow. Now, a year on, that incredible moment has been overshadowed by some of the best televisual film-making of all time thanks to a season that has outstripped everything that has come before. And now, because the Seven demand it, we’re heading off into the unforgiving abyss between seasons again.
But not before some delicious fireworks go off in the season finale, of course.
The show has 70 minutes to fill this time out, and that means a little over 10% extra story than usual. For a show as densely packed in narrative terms as Game Of Thrones that SHOULDN’T pose too much of a problem, but it likely means we’re going to see more storylines explored than even the teaser trailer suggested.
So, what are the biggest, best and most outlandish rumours out there for the forthcoming finale? Buckle up, because Winter is definitely coming…
12. Arya Goes To The Twins
According to one rumour, Arya is going to get her mission of vengeance back on track in a big way by interrupting the meeting between Walder Frey and Jaime Lannister and opening a can of Red Wedding style whup-!*$%.
As iDigitalTimes pertinently states, with Arya heading back to her homeland, she’s hardly going to just go to Winterfell and settle down. She still has the small matter of her kill list to work through (and hopefully a reunion with the Hound at some point), and she’s surely bound to go to the first big target on her list.
That means the potential for a bloody reunion with the Freys, who are running out of usefulness aside from as numbers in the Lannister army. And that would be a great way to end the season, even if the odds of her actually taking out the entire Frey family are obscenely imbalanced. Maybe just Walder then?
