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.
