Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 3 aired this Sunday. It was a battle episode, titled “The Long Night“, and it had a lot of great moments and deaths. One of the biggest deaths was that of Theon Greyjoy, which occured towards the very end of the episode. However, actor Alfie Allen spoiled it for the fans before everybody had a chance to see it happen. Read on!
Alfie Allen’s Theon Greyjoy has had a rollercoaster ride on the show. We have seen many characters in the grey, going from bad guys to good guys, and Theon has led the charge here. However, in “The Long Night” we saw Theon meet his end, as he charged towards the Night King in his final bid to save Bran and the Night King got him.
Alfie posted a picture to his Instagram, which the fans considered as a spoiler for Theon’s exit from the show, even though it was posted after the episode aired. Check it out:
Many fans were annoyed and angry at this apparent spoiler and sounded off in the comments. The picture just shows a Greyjoy armour. The caption was the real giveaway, with Alfie putting in nothing but a broken hear emoji, and there’s not much else that could mean.
Thank you Alfie Allen for spoiling one GOT death on Instagram! And thank you @PilouAsbaek for confirming that bloody spoiler with your heartwarming message to Alfie on his post.
