The stars of the HBO drama series have been asked to describe the supersized season 6 finale and director Miguel Sapochnik says, ‘People die.’
HBO may not release the official synopsis of “Game of Thrones” season 6 finale, but we’ve now got hints at what to expect from the upcoming episode. The stars of the hit HBO series, including Liam Cunningham and Kristofer Hivju, have described the final episode.
Cunningham who plays Davos Seaworth keeps his lips sealed to avoid sharing any spoiler, but he hints that it won’t be less intense than episode nine that featured “Battle of the Bastards”. He explains, “For a couple of seasons, we’ve built up to episode nine. We have this huge episode nine, and then going into episode 10, we see where we are for the season, and we start setting up the next season. It’s going to be a little bit different this time. You can certainly say there are going to be some surprises in the next episode.”
Echoing his statement, EW reports that “unlike some of the Thrones finales that aired after action-packed episodes, this season-ender definitely does not slow down the pace.” It adds, “You can expect pretty much every major character to make an appearance, with Cersei and Ser Loras’ trial serving as a pivotal centerpiece that will change King’s Landing politics next year.”
Miguel Sapochnik who directed last week’s episode and the upcoming outing simply says, “People die,” when asked to describe the final episode. Gemma Whelan who plays Yara Greyjoy claims it will be “thrilling, epic and overwhelming.”
Kristofer Hivju who portrays Tormund Giantsbane uses the words “breathtaking, amazing, brilliant” to describe the episode. Dean-Charles Chapman who stars as Tommen Baratheon adds that it’s “worth waiting for,” while Tom Wlaschiha, the Jaqen H’Ghar depicter, teases, “The end is near.”
The 69-minute finale will air Sunday, June 26 at 9/8c on HBO.
