WE BET YOU DIDN’T SEE THESE COM­ING …

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

Some of our big­gest home­grown and over­seas dra­mas have re­ceived re­cent shock- death shake- ups.

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen early eps of sea­son four of Game of Thrones or sea­son two of House of Cards, skip the last two …

DOWN­TON ABBEY

Lady Mary ( Michelle Dock­ery) had just given birth and Matthew Craw­ley ( Dan Stevens) was rush­ing home to share the news. A wind­ing road and a truck com­ing to­wards him ended his Down­ton jour­ney – and sea­son three.

PACKED TO THE RAFTERS

Rafters’ big­gest rat­ing episode saw Melissa Rafter ( Zoe Ven­toura) killed while driv­ing and fid­dling with her mo­bile phone on her way to meet hus­band Ben ( Hugh Sheridan) in sea­son three.

OFF­SPRING

Fans re­coiled in shock and anger when Patrick Reid ( Matt Le Nevez), the leading man in Nina’s ( Asher Ked­die) life, died af­ter be­ing struck by a car to­wards the end of sea­son four.

HOUSE OF CARDS

Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood left us gob­s­macked – and in no doubt about his mer­ci­less pres­i­den­tial am­bi­tions – when he ca­su­ally pushed for­mer lover and jour­nal­ist Zoe Barnes ( Kate Mara) into the path of a train to open sea­son two.

GAME OF THRONES

The hit fan­tasy reg­u­larly leaves those who haven’t read the books scram­bling. Think the be­head­ing of Ned Stark ( Sean Bean) in sea­son one, the bloody Red Wed­ding – which took out three key cast mem­bers in a mat­ter of fi ve min­utes – and the sea­son- four poi­son­ing of evil boy- king Jof­frey ( Jack Glee­son) at his own nup­tials.
