Game of Thrones isn’t really a series that could end happily. I mean, sure, if they really wanted, they could end things with the genuinely good guy ending up on the throne and virtually no lives lost along the way but that’s never been their style, and it’s certainly not the way author George R.R. Martin envisioned things.
Martin has gone on the record to state that the ending he had in mind will be a bittersweet one. To be fair, the novels and the show are very different beasts, and when all said and done, could have very different endings, but I’d like to think the basic spirit would be retained in the series. It’s with that in mind that we turn to Tyrion Lannister, arguably the most likable character in the series. What does the future hold for this man who has stolen many a heart of fans? Speaking with Vulture, actor Peter Dinklage said some very interesting stuff.
“I feel very, very — I’m trying to find the right word. I think he was given a very good conclusion. No matter what that is — death can be a great way out.”
Okay, so what does this mean? Is the imp doomed to end up with his head on a stake? The author of the Vulture piece himself annotated this very line, saying that he didn’t take the line to mean that Tyrion would die, but that it was Dinklage keeping the possibility of death open.
Sadly, this ultimately means that we are no closer to knowing the truth than we were before, but if you were absolutely sure Tyrion would make it to the final moments of the show — and if you were, I feel like you haven’t watched the show or read the books — then you can put that to rest. EVERYONE is in danger now that the endgame is near.
