The following contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven.
The final two minutes of the Game of Thrones season seven finale are distressing, to put it mildly. Even more traumatizing than the Wall crumbling down and the White Walkers crossing into Westeros is the unknown fate of two fan-favorite characters, Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarrion. The pair, who are at Eastwatch-by-the-Sea when wight Viserion and the Night King begin blasting the Wall apart, are last seen attempting to flee the destruction . . . but as the series stands, we still don't know whether they succeed or not. And neither, it seems, does the GOT cast.
The actor who plays Tormund, Kristofer Hivju, celebrated the finale with a selfie with Richard Dormer, who plays Beric, captioning his Instagram, "Pray for us!" Hivju also threw in the hashtag #whatwillhappen, so it appears that even the show's talent roster is waiting on the edge of their seats for intel about season eight. We refuse to acknowledge that Tormund might be anything other than alive and well, though, since we need him to finally woo Brienne of Tarth and continue his banter-filled friendship with the Hound. Any suggestions other than these will be promptly met with fingers in our ears, so don't even try it.
