When Game of Thrones ended its seventh season many fans were left wondering the fate of Tormund Giantsbane.
The last we saw of his character, he was attempting to escape the crush of the Wall which began to crumble. Now it looks like we may have an answer as to whether he will return next season.
HBO recently release the episode script for the seventh season finale when they submitted it in consideration for the 2018 Emmy Awards. A PDF of the episode script, along with episode scripts of several other TV series, is available to view on the Emmys website.
Here is an excerpt taken from the script:
While the script doesn’t plainly state whether Tormund survived or not, the fact that it doesn’t straightforwardly state that he died is a good sign. In the season 5 finale in which Jon Snow is brutally stabbed by several member’s of the Night’s Watch, the episode script explicitly revealed his death, as shown in the episode script HBO shared with Entertainment Weekly.
Therefore if Tormund truly did see his demise, it’s likely HBO wouldn’t have had a reason to hide it on page.
Do you believe Tormund Giantsbane will return – either alive or as a white walker – in the next season? Let us know in the comments!
