Sophie Turner has spoken out with a few enigmatic comments regarding the Game of Thrones series finale to help us make it to 2019.
We still have a bit of a wait before the final season of Game of Thrones hits HBO in 2019. And while we’re all still putting the final touches on our fan theories surrounding just who will wind up on the Iron Throne, according to Sansa Stark herself, Sophie Turner, the finale is going to keep us guessing.
In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Turner gave an understandably cryptic interview to discuss how the show ends. While she didn’t hint at who lives or dies, it sounds like she was pretty happy with where the story ended up. As she explained to Digital Spy, “For me – without giving anything away, I guess – I was satisfied with how unpredictable the show’s ending really is.”
She expounded on the unpredictability of the series’ end and the tidal wave of fan theories out there, lowkey implying that Game of Thrones fans have no idea what is truly in store for them when we return to Westeros. For a show that has been as full of twists and turns as this show, it isn’t totally surprising to hear that the finale will be shocking and unpredictable, but it’s got our minds racing!
“People have come up with so many fan theories about how it’s going to end, and who will end up where, and who will end up with who. It really is so unpredictable the way that it ends up. I’m very satisfied with that, and I think that the fans will be satisfied with that, too.”
And if you’re feeling frustrated about feeling so in the dark about the show’s ending, don’t worry. There’s a solid chance that George R.R. Martin himself doesn’t even know how GoT is going to end. Turner explained that Martin gave his blessing to showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss to end the show as they saw fit based on their reading of the existing books in the Martin-penned series.
We can’t wait to see how this series ends, and we’re excited to hear Sophie Turner say that the ending will keep fans guessing. We’ll all take our final trip back to Westeros when Game of Thrones returns to HBO in 2019.
