    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    That Sansa is not currently attracted to Tyrion is undeniably true. I’m still increasingly sure they’re going to end up together, though. #stillabetterlovestorythantwilight

    D&D will go there if it’s GRRM’s endgame, and GRRM as far as I can tell has no problem with romances with significant age differences in ASOIAF and related stories. (Even the Targ backstories have their share of romances with significant age differences: Elaena/Alyn Velaryon were 30 years apart, Daemon/Nettles were 30 years apart, etc.) I don’t think SanSan is endgame, but the age difference has nothing to do with why I think that.

    I disagree, but I'm probably the only one who will, lol. I used to think that that ruled out Sansa and Tyrion ending up together as well, but I've changed my mind.

    I used to think that S8 would be too crowded already in the romance department to leave any room for Sansa/Tyrion given the established relationships you mentioned, along with the possibility of some movement on the Jaime/Brienne front, but I’ve changed my mind. Thinking Sansa and Tyrion will end up together is probably the ultimate unpopular opinion, so I can’t say I blame you for disagreeing with me, lol.

    1. That, among other things. 2. Lol, like D&D care what the “general audience” would like.

    And Sansa ending up with Tyrion romantically would be an even greater subversion of what she wanted in the beginning, although that’s not one of the reasons for my increasing certainty that they’re endgame.

    Romantically.

    Even though I’ve argued against it strenuously in the past, I’m increasingly certain Tyrion and Sansa are going to end up together in the show, which if it happens is going to lead to some lively discussions about whether the same will happen in the books, lol.

    We can write this one off. Sophie filmed in Seville for 8x06, so unless she's playing Wight Sansa, Sansa survives to 8x06 along with Arya, Tyrion, Brienne, Gendry, Sam, and Robin at the very least.

    I wouldn't say that GRRM not including Dany and Bran (or any other characters, for that matter) means that they won't survive, only that his reference to not getting to see Jon, Arya and Tyrion's stories continue means that they will. Presumably there will be other characters left standing at the end of GOT/ASOIAF other than Jon, Arya and Tyrion.

    Well, in at least two of those three cases, it already seemed very likely that the characters survive, so... It also aligns with GRRM’s outline which promised that Jon, Arya and Tyrion would make it through the books (as well as Dany and Bran).

    Via Azor Ahype on YouTube about GRRM’s recent interview in Redwood City: GRRM was asked about GOT successor shows and said that “we’re not going to see the stories of Jon Snow, Arya Stark and Tyrion continue on” after GOT. Seems like confirmation that those three characters survive, doesn’t it?

    Not necessarily, no. Depends on the character. Die from what? No actors playing villains were present for day filming except the NK's actor, and he allegedly wasn't in costume during the day.

    Stand-ins and doubles are used for things other than risky scenes, though, and /BoatsexBaby called them both stand-ins and doubles (and in a few instances "stand-ins/doubles") and wouldn't clarify which one they meant, even though stand-ins and doubles serve very different functions. So the whole thing's pretty muddy. /BoatsexBaby seems to be taking their information that the dragonpit scenes are battle scenes and reasoning backwards to assume that Sophie and co. need doubles because they'll be in an action scene, but it doesn't add up.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Two scenes filmed sequentially would make sense, as in Dubrovnik, but there wouldn't be two scenes filmed simultaneously, which is what /BoatsexBaby was implying was the reason for Sophie/Peter/Gwendoline having doubles and Maisie/John/Joe/Liam/Isaac not having doubles. Not to mention that in four days there's only so much they can film, even a straightforward scene. Also, if there were multiple scenes filmed sequentially during the day with different actors, you would expect to see the actors who weren't filming on a particular day hanging out at the hotel or in Seville or whatever as NCW and Faye were doing. We know, however, that certain actors filmed for the whole day on every filming weekday, meaning that they were all in the same scene or scenes.
