Attention, Tormund Giantsbane fans (aka everyone). The fate of the best beard in the Seven Kingdoms has been revealed and it is major.
Quick recap: The season seven finale left us with a whole lot of questions. Will the King in the North try to take the Iron Throne? What will happen to the Army of the Dead? And will Jon and Dany keep doing the deed once they find out they’re related? (Answer: Probably.) But the most pressing question of all: Did Tormund survive the attack on the Wall?
Which is pretty awesome news since we’re very into Tormund and Brienne of Tarth’s potential love affair (think of the “giant babies”). Not to mention how Tormund is basically our ultimate GoT crush. Sorry, Jon Snow (we’ll leave you to your incestuous ways).
Sure, there’s a chance that Tormund’s season eight role may be limited to flashbacks, but that’s not really GoT’s style (that’s more Bran’s thing). Besides, Tormund deserves so much more than an off-screen death. What he deserves is true happiness with Brienne of Tarth, but we digress.
Who wasn’t at the table reading? Actor Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion). But we’re hopeful that he, too, survived the attack on the Wall. We mean, with a $15 million per episode budget, that’s enough to keep all the actors in the show, right? Pretty please?
