But in Game of Thrones Season 4, Episode 8, one of them is forced into an even more difficult situation. Many fans can now see the GOT Season 4 finale highlights in progress.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) personally picks The Mountain as her late son King Joffrey's champion. GOT 4x8 is expected to keep fans thrilled, upset, and anxious -- for the last two episodes and for Game of Thrones Season 5.

Now Littlefinger murders her Aunt Lysa Arryn (Kate Dickie), too. Petyr proves in Game of Thrones Season 4, Episode 7 that he means to protect Sansa.
