Although it is going to be an extended await followers earlier than Season eight of “Sport of Thrones” airs on HBO, that does not imply that there is not some intense hypothesis about which of the remaining characters will survive to the tip of the present’s closing episode.
Followers are determined to search out out not solely which character will take the Iron Throne ultimately, but additionally which of them will merely simply get by means of the epic wars which are nonetheless dealing with Westeros. Not solely is the specter of the Night time King (Vladimir Furdik) extra actual than ever as a result of he and his military have breached the Wall, however Cersei’s (Lena Headey) maddening quest for energy continues to be one other main menace. Mixed with different free ends that also have not been addressed, there are a number of characters who might stare demise within the face in Season eight.
Here is how we predict characters will fare because the collection involves an finish.
Will Die In Season eight:

Cersei’s demise is one thing that was prophesized within the books, and whereas that hasn’t been completed on the present, she has just about no allies left. Since she is the one nonetheless on the Iron Throne, and she or he pulled off a large betrayal to each different main participant nonetheless alive on the present in Season 7, it isn’t a query of whether or not she is going to die in Season eight, however extra of a query as to when, and who would be the one to finish her.
The Night time King
Contemplating he is the opposite massive supply of assumed evil in Westeros, it will appear probably that he could be killed off on the finish of Season eight. The present may be significantly darkish, however it’d be unusual for to it finish with the Night time King nonetheless alive, since it will probably imply everybody else actually died.
Yara (Gemma Whalen) And Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk)
Once more, evil will probably all die in Season eight, which implies somebody will be capable to take Euron down. As for Yara, it is arduous to consider he hasn’t already killed her since taking her captive, so she is going to both be useless or near-dead when she’s lastly seen once more.
Varys (Conleth Hill) and Melisandre (Carice Van Houten)
The present by no means wastes a single line of dialogue, so these two will each die after Melisandre mentioned their future deaths in Season 7.
Additionally Dying In Season eight:
Qyburn (Anton Lesser), The Mountain (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson), Dolorous Edd (Ben Crompton), Tormund (Kristofer Hivju), Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer)
Every of those characters will completely die in Season eight, solely as a result of they’re among the many most expendable, or are nonetheless in conditions that make them prone to be killed off.
Most Probably Will Die:
Arya Stark (Maisie Williams)

If one other Stark baby has to die earlier than the present involves an finish, it can probably be Arya. Not solely does she put herself in essentially the most harmful conditions, she additionally appears to have the least objective in the post-war Westeros world. For that purpose alone, she appears prone to die.
Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)
Although he is grow to be considerably extra ethical since Season 1, and has grow to be even likeable as a personality, it appears unlikely he’ll be capable to survive to the tip. Somebody someplace will resolve he deserves punishment for his previous crimes and former unfailing loyalty to Cersei.
Additionally Probably To Die In Season eight:
Gray Worm (Jacob Anderson), Bronn (Jerome Flynn) and The Hound (Rory McCann)
Gray Worm and Missandei have a stunning love story on the present—which implies one in every of them is prone to die. Solely as a result of he is a soldier who shall be on the entrance strains, he appears extra prone to perish of the 2. The Hound will now not have a objective both, as soon as his brother dies, which can result in his finish. As for Bronn, his being a promote sword may also come again to hang-out him, as his lack of loyalty to at least one facet until he was receiving gold will ultimately trigger him to make a mistake that prices him his life.
Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick Payne (Daniel Portman)
Brienne has fulfilled her oath technically, now that Arya and Sansa are each again in Winterfell. With that objective technically completed, she appears extra expendable once more. After all, if Arya does die, then it might imply Brienne will see herself as having failed at her process within the worst means, and she is going to finish her personal life. After she dies, Podrick may also finish his personal life, out of his loyalty and love for her.
Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)

Sansa has a objective within the post-world Westeros, because the one who will govern Winterfell and be the Wardeness of the North. Due to that (and the reality that she has stayed out of hurt’s means since fleeing Winterfell when it was held by the Boltons), she shall be alive when the collection involves an finish.
Jon Snow (Equipment Harington)
There is not any means the true inheritor to the Iron Throne, the key Targaryen, would die twice proper? Since he is already died and are available again to life, it is unlikely the present would kill him a second time.
Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright)
Like Sansa, he has a particular objective because the Three-Eyed Raven. He’ll survive due to that.
Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage)
Although his objective has seemingly modified and his significance has weakened somewhat bit, one Lannister might want to survive, and if Jaime and Cersei aren’t going to make it out, that leaves Tyrion.
Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)
If she have been to die, it must be after she has the infant she is going to grow to be pregnant with after sleeping with Jon. Nonetheless, it will appear unlikely that she would nonetheless perish in any respect. Though Jon’s declare to the throne is best, he could also be content material letting her take the function of the figurehead much more as Queen.
Additionally Surviving Season eight:
Samwell Tarly (John Bradley-West), Gilly (Hannah Murray), Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham), Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel), Jorah Mormont (Iain Glenn) and Gendry (Joe Dempsie)
There actually would not be a lot narrative objective to killing off any of those characters aside from shock worth. “Sport of Thrones,” even when a demise has been surprising and surprising to followers, has by no means been about doing issues solely for the sake of surprising viewers. Each demise has performed some function within the total narrative someplace, and it is arduous to foretell what objective these deaths would serve at this stage within the sport.
Characters Who’s Fates We’ll By no means Know:
Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman), Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey) and Robyn Arryn (Lino Facioli)
Whereas we should still see little Lyanna in Season eight, it is unlikely that we’ll know a lot about her, as her function already appeared to be diminished vastly in Season 7. As for Daario and Robyn, they have been each taken off-canvas a while in the past, and it is unlikely they’re going to be introduced again within the closing season, which wants to completely end the story.
