It will still take two years before Game of ThronesSeason 8 hits the small screen. However, fans are now predicting who will survive and who is going to die in the final season of the epic fantasy series.

It has been suggested that the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series’ swan song will be a bloodbath. Aside from the fates of Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) and Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer), it is also a big question about what Yara Greyjoy’s (Gemma Whelan) future will be.

Surviving another day to fight again

Yara was last seen as a captive of her uncle Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk). However, it remains to be seen if he is going to kill her or not in “Game of Thrones” Season 8. In the previous season, her brother, Theon (Alfie Allen), gathered all his senses to have the guts to rescue his sister. Could he save Yara? There are assumptions that Theon is going to die sacrificing himself for the safety of his sibling.

However, in an interview with Gemma Whelan, she told Raising Films (via Daily Express), "I have been very lucky with my timing I think." As some believed that her character is about to meet its demise after she announced that she is expecting her first child with her husband Gerry, she just hinted that Yara is going to survive.

The 36-year-old actress explained that she was not yet pregnant when the previous season ended. And by the time that she has to shoot for the upcoming last installment, she will have already given birth.. “So, no giant belly for Yara!" she joked.

Avoiding spoilers and leakages

In other news, after the massive leaks and spoilers during the previous season, HBO is now being more careful to keep “Game of Thrones” Season 8’s scripts and storylines secret.

In fact, the Independent reported that the television show has gone digital. The series’ scripts can be only opened inside the premises of the studio in Belfast and with authorization. In an interview with IGN, Liam Cunningham, who plays the role of Davos Seaworth, revealed that he already has the six episodes’ scripts, but he can’t read it yet.

“I can't open them because of all the security and I can't walk [them] out,” he said.

However, the 56-year-old didn’t address how the restriction will be lifted when they start filming for the new season. In spite of the constraints, he still feels happy about not knowing how the series will flow. He thinks that he can now feel the tension like “pulling the pin out of a grenade.”
