I do believe Tig will die eventually, because after all... the story is inspired by Hamlet
. Here's something to ponder... in Hamlet
, Clay would be King Claudius and Tig would be Laerte, one of Claudius' loyal henchmen. By the end of Hamlet
, Laertes is involved in the death of King Claudius because of all the lies and deception he cast upon him. Hamlet Jr. was the one that actually killed him, but Laertes helped, and was killed not long after because he was a loose end. So yeah, we will see how it plays out in the show. It might be something a bit similar that happens.
Also, The Lion King is inspired by Hamlet. So let's compare Lion King characters to SOA:
John Teller - Mufasa
Jax - Simba
Tara - Nala
Clay - Scar
Gemma - Sarabi
Tig - Hyenas
That's all I can think of at the moment.
