Just one episode to go in Game of Thrones season five and some of my predictions have been correct. What’s left for the final episode?

Dany did fly on Drogon in ep 9 so I called that OK. It now looks like Arya’s killing Meryn Trant and blinding is still going to be included but in ep 10 rather than ep 9 as I previously predicted. It looks like my other two predictions (Cersei’s shaming and Jon Snow’s stabbing) are definitely on for ep 10 as well. It looks like they have some other stuff with Sansa/Boltons/Brienne lined up too. That will be a crowded episode.

Shireen’s immolation wasn’t something I had predicted and I expect there will be other major events in the final episode that I also didn’t predict. With Jorah surviving the coliseum battle but doomed by greyscale he could die anytime. And next season – well that will be all unknown all the time!

I previously made some predictions about major book storylines that might make it into this season of the TV show. With just two episodes remaining it looks like I wasn’t too far off.

From the published details of the final two episodes it appears that the betrayal and stabbing of Jon Snow will be in the final episode as will Cersei’s walk of shame. Daenerys’ flight on Drogon will be either in ep 9 or 10 and Arya’s blinding (if it happens this season) will be in ep 9.

So after ep 9 it will be pretty clear what is left for the finale!
