The cast of Game of Thrones are arriving en masse to Ireland to begin the filming of the final six episodes of the show with Season 8.
It is worth noting right off the bat, that if you do not want to have anything spoiled for you, you should stop reading now.
Warning SPOILERS ahead!!
One of the big cliff-hangers, literally, in Game of Thrones Season 7 was whether Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarrion survived the attack on the wall by the Night King and his zombie dragon.
Well thanks to Wiki of Thrones and some fans taking pictures of the cast arriving in Ireland for Season 8 filming, it is clear to assume that Tormund Giantsbane has survived due to actor Kristofer Hijvu making his way to the set as you can see below.

This could be seen as a massive spoiler for certain fans, although personally I never thought for a second they would kill Beric and Tormund off screen. It should be noted that this does not confirm the fate of Beric Dondarrion, but one would imagine eventually we will see actor Richard Dormer arrive for shooting as well.
What do you think of this news, are you relieved that fan favorite Tormund seems to be alive and well in Game of Thrones Season 8? Let us know in the comments section below.
