Daenerys- As much as I adore the character of Daenerys, I’m not quite certain she’s going to make it through to the end. In my wildest fantasies, she becomes pregnant with Jon’s child. But this is the Game of Thrones, and I can’t help but think Dany is not going to get what she wants, nay, burns for. I half-way believe that Jon will have to kill her to fulfill the Azor Ahai prophecy. Either that, or she is going to have to sacrifice Drogon in some manner.
Jon Snow- I’m equally unconvinced that Jon is going to live. He was brought back to life by Melisandre to fulfill a purpose, and I believe that will be to kill the Night King. But once he achieves his purpose, who is to say that he will live after that?? Perhaps he will be free to rest in peace once the prophecy is fulfilled and the long night is over again. I 75% have a gut feeling he will make it to the end, but I’m not sure.
Tormund- Since this is Game of Thrones, I can’t help but think of something tragic happening to one of my favorite characters. I don’t think he died in the Wall’s destruction, but that doesn’t make him safe. I believe he might sacrifice himself for Brienne. Or he might go down in the Final Battle somehow ☹
Brienne of Tarth- Speaking of Brienne, I am half way convinced she is going to make it through to the end. After all, she is an excellent fighter. She beat the Hound! I am 85% sure she is going to make it. There is no reason to be so optimistic, I just don’t want her to be dead.
Jaime Lannister- I wouldn’t put it past Jaime to sacrifice himself in the end. He will do some foolishly brave thing as his last act. He might help them some in some epic way. I could see his fate going either way. After such an immersive redemptive arc, it might not be too far a stretch that they might want him to outlive his reputation as the Kingslayer. Or to give his reputation a new meaning?!
Sandor Clegane- I want Sandor to win the Cleganebowl. I don’t want him to die in the process. I could see him sacrificing himself for either of the Stark girls. He might die in the Final Battle, because he is not going to do well in it. With the dragons present, there is going to be a lot of flaming wights and soldiers alike going on. He might freeze up and end up the worst for it. I half way don’t expect him to make it through the end. He was instrumental to Azor Ahai’s prophecy however so perhaps there is hope for him yet.
Gendry Waters- I could unfortunately see Gendry falling during the Final Battle. I do not have the most trust in his fighting abilities. He might be able to swing that axe ably, but I think he lacked battle experience. He might be too green and get himself killed in the Final Battle. I feel 64% he won’t make it through to the end.
Yara Greyjoy- I see Yara being rescued by Theon, or almost(!) This is Game of Thrones after all. I could see something tragic befalling both the Greyjoy siblings in Theon’s attempt to save her. Maybe neither one of them will make it out of it alive. I feel 35% certain she might die.
Bran Stark- I want Bran to warg into Viserion more than anything. It might cost him his life, but so be it. I don’t think I see the Three Eyed Raven making it through to the end. Maybe. Then again, he is the Three Eyed Raven, so perhaps he will find a way to go live beyond the wall in the End and go be part of that old tree like his predecessor. I feel 73% he’ll live.
Meera Reed- I can’t imagine she wouldn’t be part of the Final Battle. I want to believe she would live, but I can’t be sure. I think she’s more likely to live than to die. She survived beyond the wall, after all.
Podrick Payne- I very much want Pod to go on. That is why I fear for his safety. I’m unconvinced he’ll make it through to the end. I’d give him a 50/50 chance of living. He might sacrifice himself for Brienne or Tyrion or Bronn. Or he might just fall in battle in the Final Battle. In my heart of hearts, I’d like to see him knighted.
