With all of the attention that has been given to Jon Snow over the past several weeks, it seems that everyone has forgotten that there were other things that happened in the Game of Thrones Series Finale. For example, did everyone just forget that Stannis was killed?

In fairness, that is not entirely fair. There has been a good deal of speculation as to whether Brienne actually killed him or not. It is just that, compared to the theories that have been built around Snow, the speculation around Stannis seems positively miniscule.

However, in an interview with EW at Comic-Con, David Nutter, the director of the Series 6 finale, put the speculation regarding Stannis to rest. In the interview, he stated, “From the very beginning, and [through] the script process, that was the intent — he’s dead”.

Personally, I am not overly surprised at this news. A friend of mine pointed out to me that the Game of Thrones team does seem to enjoy killing a King each season. Think about it, Robert, then Renly, followed by Robb, Joffrey and now Stannis. So with this piece of news, we can finally put the Stannis speculation to rest. Now we can all focus on the Jon Snow speculation.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
