What’s going to happen in the season finale? Who else has to die to satisfy the bloodlust of gods old and new? Plenty of questions will be answered in the next week by Game of Thrones, but so many more will likely be posed as the show finishes its massively entertaining fourth season. In this week’s spoiler discussion, I’m opening it up to all of you to discuss your theories about how GoT will finish season four. With not a lot of spoilery talk to be had about episode 9 — it was a big battle with a few logistical changes, but overall it was in line with the tone of what happened in the book — perhaps it’s best to look forward.
But first, the spoiler warning…
Below is a picture of Walter White Walker: Lord of Spoilers. Browsing beyond his mug opens you up to book knowledge (including all five books of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series), wild speculation, Wiki study and forum conspiracy theories. Seriously, this is the most spoiler-filled place in all of Westeros.
For my part, I’d like to submit the latest episode of A Storm of Spoilers, which features myself alongside Latino-Review.com‘s Dave Gonzales and Vanity Fair‘s Joanna Robinson chatting about this past week’s episode and what we expect from the final frame of season four. Give it a listen:
If you took my advice and listened to the episode above, you now know that we expect the following events to happen in episode 10:
- The Hound and Arya finally part ways
- Tyrion gets a special visitor
- Lord Tywin gets a special visitor
- Shae gets a special necklace
- Bran finds a big tree
- Dany is presented with more bones
- Someone comes back from the dead
Since our podcast episode was released, we’ve heard a number of interesting theories (including one great one about The Hound and Arya running into Brienne and Pod, thus ruling out an appearance by Lady Stoneheart). The big question of the week: what do you think is going to happen as we move forward? Tell me your theories and thoughts in the comments and we’ll reconvene next week to wrap up what has shaped up to be another wonderful season of Game of Thrones.
