Alfie Allen is really dishing out about the Season 6 premiere. Speaking to members of the press in Los Angeles, Allen revealed what’s going to happen to several characters, and while some of it is stuff we could have guessed, it’s still unusually frank. News X has the report.
Allen explains what will happen to Theon and Sansa when we catch up with them in the premiere: “At the beginning of (season) six, you find him running through snowy, freezing forests leading the way with Sansa. They’ve just jumped off the wall of Winterfell and now they’re on the run from Ramsay.
“And we’re running through and we come to a river and Sansa is just too scared basically to get into the river. So I get in. Don’t believe the press shots! It looks like she’s trying to get me out of the river, when I’m actually trying to be the strong one and get her in the river. Makes me look weak. “
There was some speculation that perhaps Theon’s leg was broken in this picture—that was a high fall, after all—but apparently not. I wonder what he means by getting “into the river.” Is there a boat there? Or are they trying to walk a while in the river to throw off the scent of Ramsay’s dogs, a technique Bran and Rickon used to avoid capture by none other than Theon himself back in Season 2?
He goes on to admit, “He sacrifices himself, because I guess he hasn’t really got much worth or meaning for himself in the world anymore. And so he leads them away – or rather that’s what he’s trying to do.
I assume that by “them,” Allen is talking about Ramsay’s men, who likely have been sent to hunt Sansa down.”
He concludes, that “In fact he doesn’t lead them away, because they see Sansa anyway and then Gwendoline Christie turns up as Brienne of Tarth and smashes everyone to shit. Dan Portman’s there — Pod — and then Pod ends up having a fight with this guy and then Theon stabs the guy in the back with the sword. He kills someone for the first time in ages, which must be a gratifying experience.”
