Season 8 predictions: The fate of every major 'Game of Thrones' character
Will your favorite character die in the final season? Here are our odds and expert predictions.
A wilding warrior as large as the tall tales he weaves, Tormund Giantsbane has grown to become one of the more beloved characters in the bloody 'Thrones' tapestry.
Played by Norwegian actor Kristofer Hivju, Tormund was last seen at the end of season 7 fleeing the collapse of the Wall at Castle Eastwatch. While his ultimate fate is currently unknown, such a rich character would be a shame to waste without a proper send-off.
As for season 8, we expect Tormund to come to the aid of Jon Snow and Sansa Stark at Westeros, perhaps even fighting side-by-side with his romantic interest Brienne of Tarth. While it's premature to give these two any chance at all of surviving to the end, there's something comforting about believing Tormund might have yet more tall tales to tell after defeating the Night King.
