(NEW YORK) — Hold on to your dragons: Game of Thrones ends its sixth season with an epic finale Sunday night titled “The Winds of Winter.” We’re just assuming it’s epic, considering last week’s game-changing “Battle of the Bastards” that ended with the Starks reclaiming Winterfell.
The director of that penultimate episode and the finale, Miguel Sapochnik, would only offer one ominous hint to The Hollywood Reporter about this week’s season-ending episode: “People die.”
Actor Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos, was a little more wordy — though no more helpful. He says the finale will be “a little bit different” compared to past finales in that it’s not just a set-up for season seven. “You can certainly say there are going to be some surprises in the next episode,” he adds, teasing some “very big events.”
One thing’s for certain: make sure you watch the episode right when it airs — at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Otherwise, you might get spoiled. There’s even a new app out there, aptly called Spoiled, which allows users to anonymously text Game of Thrones spoilers to unsuspecting friends immediately after the episode airs.
Ruthless. The Lannisters would be proud.
