There are just six episodes left in “Game of Thrones” TV series. In recent interviews, cast member Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) teased how the show will take the viewers in a surprising new direction that even he didn’t expect, and he also talked about how things might end for his character.

In an interview with BelfastTelegraph, Dinklage said that show will take the viewers to a place that they will never see coming. He said that he too didn’t see this coming. He warned the fans to “be prepared,” but added that it will be a “fun ride.”

Just as the cast members say every year, Dinklage said that this season will be the best. However, this time it will not just be the best for the show, but also the entire TV industry, according to the actor.

In an interview with ETOnline, Dinklage teased that things will end “beautifully” for Tyrion. The actor did not elaborate on the comment, and he made it a point to explain that the beautiful ending could be happy or tragic.

One possible surprise in season 8 may be about the return of Daario Naharis (Michael Huisman). The character was left behind in the continent of Essos by his queen, but there have been many theories over the years about how that may not be the end for the character.

Huisman seemed to have hinted at his return in an interview with DigitalSpy. The actor said that he didn’t want to say anything because he was afraid of giving away spoilers. However, the fact that he knows what happens in the final season suggests that he has read the script and filmed with the others.

The plot of the next season includes a war between Cersei (Lena Headey) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), with the former getting The Golden Company to travel to Westeros. Some fans suspect that Daario may travel with the mercenary army from Essos.
