Game of Thrones spoilers indicate Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) will not survive. GoT Season 8 has a release date, and while the exact day isn’t known at this time, knowing it will return in April 2019 is news enough. The closer we get to the premiere of the final Game of Thrones season, the closer we get to the end. Many of our favorite characters will die, and, if recent leaked spoilers are correct, Tyrion Lannister is among them.
Game of Thrones Spoilers: Tyrion Lannister charged with treason in Season 8
Tyrion Lannister escaped death numerous times in Game of Thrones, but the beloved confidante and strategist may finally meet his maker in the upcoming GoT season. According to a leak, Peter Dinklage’s character is tried for treason after he sets fire to King’s Landing. Thousands are killed as a result. The last Game of Thrones scene Peter Dinklage filmed was Tyrion walking through the decimated streets – accompanied by Jon Snow and Ser Davos Seaworth. Tyrion’s trial was the only scene filmed in Sevilla/Itálica, and there were no action scenes, green screens, or CGI. Certain characters filmed there, while others did not.
Game of Thrones characters that filmed in Sevilla:
- Tyrion Lannister
- Grey Worm and Unsullied
- 2 new characters (one with golden armor, the other with a beard)
Game of Thrones characters that didn’t film in Sevilla:
- The Waif
- Yohn Royce
- Jon Snow (and his body double)
Never forget what you are,the rest of the world will not.Wear it like armor and it can never be used to hurt you.
Death is so final, yet life is full of possibilities.

Tyrion’s betrayal in Game of Thrones Season 8
The Golden Company arrive in Winterfell disguised as Lannister soldiers. Harry Strickland (who is among them) meets with Tyrion, informing him that his sister has come to collect his debt. Tyrion orders Strickland to take Daenerys hostage, and the Golden Company sack Winterfell as Tyrion sets fire to the main hall. If Tyrion repays a debt to his sister in Game of Thrones with his life, it will be both tragic and fitting. A Lannister always pays his debts.
It’s upsetting to think of Tyrion betraying Jon, Daenerys, and everything he’s built. Tyrion is too smart for his own good, and he had much to offer but no one to offer it to. He filled his emptiness with witty retorts, wine, and women until Daenerys gave him something to believe in that even his nihilistic tendencies and jaded worldview couldn’t deny. If he betrays that and loses his life as a result, that’s going to be a hard pill to swallow because Tyrion is vital to the success of Game of Thrones in many ways.
Tyrion’s death in the Dragonpit in GoT
Tyrion meets his end in the Dragonpit following his trial. He is guilty of treason and is sentenced to die, though it’s not specified how he’ll be executed. If there are any dragons remaining, he could go out the same way Lord Randyll Tarly and his son Dickon did. Tyrion always wanted a dragon of his own, and maybe he meets his end at the hands (or flames) of one in Game of Thrones Season 8.
Tyrion is a fan-favorite in GoT, and if he betrays Jon and Daenerys in the end, it will be hard to watch. He’s the hero of Blackwater, and he survived the attempts on his life after he was blamed for Joffrey’s death. Killing a beloved character like Tyrion is right in line with what George R.R. Martin does, however, the death of a fan-favorite isn’t easy.
