Game of Thrones Star Iain Glen Just Spoiled Jorah Mormont's Fate
The final season of HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones has more security than certain politicians, so there have barely been any substantive leaks from the shooting, the editing, or the production phases. However, it seems as if nobody told Iain Glen, who portrays the embattled Ser Jorah Mormont on the show, not to spill any details, as he just dropped a huge spoiler to the Daily Express.
Turns out that in a show where everyone from kings to common peasants can be killed off at a moment's notice, the exiled Lord of Bear Island makes it through to the end of the show.
"I am one of the lucky ones who made it through!" Glen said when asked about his character's position at the end of the season.
This is somewhat unsurprising as Jorah has been through a lot on the show, including things that would almost certainly kill another man. He has survived assassination attempts, gladiatorial combat, and even a deadly illness that nobody had ever been cured of before. This is all because his love and devotion to his queen, Daenerys Targaryen, is stronger than any mortal injury.
The final season of Game of Thrones is believed to be comprised of six feature-length episodes which will air sometime in the first half of 2019. While we now know that Jorah will make it through relatively unscathed, it's still up in the air if any of the other main characters will meet one of the series's signature gruesome deaths in the final season—though the early word is that your favorite character, whoever that may be, will be likely to die at some point during the final episodes.
