Game Of Thrones endgame will be “unpredictable”, promises Joe Dempsie

Joe Dempsie, who plays the Baratheon bastard Gendry in Game Of Thrones, believes that fans have not correctly guessed the ultimate endgame of the show. Game Of Thrones season 8 will conclude this epic story when it airs next year, and, according to Dempsie, it will be full of surprises.

In a new interview, Dempsie said this:

“I’ve not envied [showrunners] David Benioff and Dan Weiss the task of having to find a way to bring this phenomenon to a conclusion that is both satisfying for the majority of the fans but also unpredictable.”

And then he added this:

“I’m sure David and Dan don’t pay too much attention to people’s theories and speculation there is all over the internet, but it would be a bit of an anti-climax if a well popularised theory turned out to be the way it ended.

“There’s many pitfalls and I think they really have achieved that with this. It’s an ending I don’t think many people will be expecting and I think, on reflection, people will really, really enjoy. That’s if I know the ending at all.”

Dempsie is right – it would be pretty underwhelming if the final season of Game Of Thrones wrapped things up in a way that fans have guessed. That’s not the unexpected, brutal show that we fell in love with!

Here’s hoping that Dempsie is right, and Game Of Thrones season 8 packs some major surprises. We’ll have to wait until 2019 to find out, and until then, you can see Dempsie in Deep State on Fox UK.
