As you probably know if you clicked on this link (and if you didn't, don't @ me about spoilers, you clicked!), the Season 7 finale of Game of Thrones ended with the Wall finally coming down after thousands of years.
As Tyrion and Jon put it so nicely earlier in the episode: Everyone we know and love in Westeros is basically fucked.
But the people who are the most immediately fucked have to be Tormund and Beric, who were standing on top of the Wall when the Night King came flying by on Viserion and burnt (iced?) that shit down.
They quickly tried to escape danger, but in the ensuing chaos it was easy to lose track of them – especially as more and more men fell to their deaths.
It left a lot of fans worried, especially about Tormund, who is one of the best damn characters on the show.
But I have some good news: If you watch the scene closely, you can see that Tormund and Beric ran along the top of the Wall, rather than trying to escape down the stairs.
It appears that they made it to a safe point just in time to turn and see the Wall crumbling down behind them.
Right around here:
From a narrative standpoint, it doesn't make sense that Tormund and Beric would be killed off in this way at this point.
So my money is on the these two returning for Season 8. I mean, Tormund has Brienne waiting for him, after all*.
Tormund and Beric are safe! Thank the gods!Lol nah, they're definitely dead.
