A Murder of Crows: Murder!

Yes, it’s time. No, not for doing Black Friday shopping or drinking from red Starbucks cups or counting down the days ‘til the Super Bowl – it’s time for murder.

That’s a major element of Game of Thrones’s unceasing popularity, after all, and for the dramatic tension inherent in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire before that. Who will live? Who will die? How will the deed be done, and what effect – if any, at this point – will it have on the overarching narrative?

Deaths!

It’s a simple question, aye, but it’s one that, once you start to get down into the weeds, has a lot of intriguing components and dramatic ramifications – and is, as it turns out, endlessly fascinating to speculate on.

So… who will it be? We’ll tell you our picks – and our rationale for them – if you join the fray with your own bloody candidates in the comments below.

Marc

Marc N. Kleinhenz:

I’d like to get your picks for who you would most like to see shuffle off of this mortal coil in season six – and not just because of your undying hatred for the man (or woman), but also because it would make for the best (read: most traumatic) plot twist.

Ready… fire!

Axe

Axechucker:

Kill me some Tyrion. Because they’ll never expect it! (I give it an exact 3% chance of happening, and that’s only if they are, by then, deep into The Winds of Winter.)

My second choice is Dany, but I think she’s more likely to go early(ish) in the books. They may kill her on the show, but only in the final season. Same with Arya, who, in my view, is a Dead Girl Walking, but, again – that’s gonna happen near the end.

Bex

Bex:

I would love to see Ramsay bite it. I love Iwan Rheon, but it would be fun to watch him die a grisly, Coen brothers-esque death. Would it be a plot twist merely by him being a bad dude in Westeros actually getting offed, maybe at the behest or orchestration of Sansa?* If the reaction to Myranda’s plummet was any indication last season, audiences could be very pleased by the death of a Bolton.**

Myranda

* not influenced in any way by author’s feelings towards Sansa.

** Roose will live forever because he is a vampire. Or something.

Petra

Petra:

Hmm… interesting question. The truth is that I don’t want anyone to die, not even the baddies. I’m pretty content with everyone where they are, as they are. But we all know how long that lasts in Westeros.

Jorah Mormont has to bite it soon, what with his Greyscale. So, I’d like him to go out in style, a la Barristan Selmy. I never found his unrequited love of Dany all that interesting (I know I’m in the minority there), so it wouldn’t exactly tear me up to watch him go.

I’d enjoy watching Petyr Baelish meet a bloody end at Sansa’s hands. I have no expectation of that happening, but I can dream.

Sansa in her wedding dress (again).

With the omission of Lady Stoneheart and her subplot, I’d say Brienne has a decent chance of dying in season six. I can’t say I want her to die (quite the contrary – she’s one of the few characters I’m legitimately, intensely invested in), but if she gets an incredible send-off, it might be worth it.

Tyrion’s death would be fun if I watched his death scene in a bar surrounded by screaming, shrieking drunk people. Same goes for Arya. Or Dany. However, I highly doubt they’d off those three before the last season.

I look forward to a deliciously gruesome death scene for Ramsay, during which all viewers experience Ramsay’s own sadism for just a few minutes. But, please, not until the final season. I enjoy Iwan Rheon’s performance way too much to lose him before that.

Theon’s been walking, er, limping with a bullseye on his forehead since the end of season two, and I know a lot of viewers want him “put out of his misery.” I’d love it if he and Sansa collaborate to kill Ramsay (cough *but not until the last season* cough), but if Theon has to go in season six, I think the writers could whip up a pretty moving death scene between him and Yara. GOT doesn’t really do sentiment, but… c’mon, D&D. Do it for me.

If Missandei and/or Grey Worm go, though, I’ll raise hell.

Marko

Hear Marko Roar:

Hello, fellow murderers! Who shall we murder today… or next season, you ask?

Well, there are several layers to the question, as Marc himself suggested. Most shocking would be a clear and unequivocal death of the main protagonists – and here I’m thinking of Tyrion and Dany – but, despite everything, some characters do have plot armour, even in George R.R. Martin’s work. I would be devastated by Brienne’s or Jaime’s demise, for sure, and I agree with Petra – hands off Missandei and Grey Worm.

Secondly, villains we won’t mourn: I think we will say goodbye to Balon this season, and I suspect Ramsay’s days are numbered. Baelish, if Sansa does it, falls into this category, too.

Thirdly, the show will find a way to gut me by killing off a character I am not even thinking about at the moment. Surely. I mean, it’s Game of Thrones – who are we kidding here?

Geoffery

Geoffery:

Balon’s been a walking dead man for seasons now, so, despite the fact I find it hilarious he’s still somehow alive in the show!niverse, I think it’s time he went for a walk.

Trystane is a character I would gladly see offed, based purely on the fact he’s not interesting to me, and I’m surprised he made it through season five. I would definitely have taken his death over Myrcella’s. Loras is another candidate for a potential demise. I think the show has done well at fleshing out his character from the books, and his arrest-for-homosexuality storyline was interesting, but ever since the Faith Militant got their hands on him, I’ve felt like his days are probably numbered.

Trystane

Ramsay would certainly make for a satisfying death, I propose at the hands of Fat Walda, who is the queen Westeros truly deserves.

Sue

Sue the Fury:

God, Trystane is the worst. Can we push him off the boat?

I do think it’s time for the show to lose at least one of the major human antagonists, since the storylines will need to tighten up in the last couple seasons and focus on the larger battle likely to come. I want to see Roose and/or Ramsay dispatched in glorious fashion in season six. I think we’re likely to lose a lot of supporting characters next season, maybe more than usual.

But for an actual plot twist? A real shocker would be to take out one of the Lannister siblings in season six. Tyrion probably has plot armor until the endgame of the show and A Song of Ice and Fire, but Jaime or Cersei (or both together) dying earlier would be an amazing turn.

Marc

Marc N. Kleinhenz:

Bronn. He’s much more of a major player in the show than he ever was in the books, and I don’t think he has much – if any – plot relevance later on down the line.

Now that would make people madder than hell all over again.

=)

Nate

Nate:

*some partly Sullied speculations*

I think Myrcella being poisoned will set off a chain reaction which kills Trystane, Ellaria, and Jamie. Trystane will probably be offed by a Lannister, most likely Cersei or Jamie. Ellaria will be executed by Doran.

I could see Cersei sending Jamie to Winterfell after Sansa when he returns with Myrcella’s corpse, where he’ll run into Brienne and somehow perish in her arms (the woman he loves).

Jaime... and Jaime

I also think it will also be a butcher season for the Lannisters, as Cersei and Tommen will probably be executed by the Faith (a la the CleganeBowl, in which the Mountain will also die).

And I’m hoping for a Ramsay/Petyr death, too (by Sansa), but we shall see.

Marc

Marc N. Kleinhenz:

Oooooooo… that could be the next Murder: who should be the murderer.

😀

Dame Pasty

Dame Pasty:

I would love to see Mel die, but she probably won’t, and you said not someone you want to die, but someone that would be for great dramatic effect.

I have to vote for Jaime and Cersei as my numero uno. It will be ugly and tragic and perfect because we want to see Cersei die, but not at the cost of Jaime not being able to continue and redeem himself.

My second vote would be for Arya. I love her dearly, but that’s the reason why they might get rid of her. Same could be said for Sansa, too, though.

Arya

No matter what, they’re going to have to start thinning the herd, and that will mean not only the killing off a major character or two, but also supporting characters (or, at least, ending their arc somehow, someway). My metaphorical popcorn is sooooo ready for season six!

Nate

Nate:

Oooo, add Mel to my list, too! And Davos as the do-er. ?

Petra

Petra:

I hadn’t considered offing Bronn. I quite like that idea, actually. He was a great companion for Tyrion, but now that they’re not following his book storyline (marrying Lollys and naming her baby Tyrion), I really don’t see what he’s doing for us anymore.

Bex

Bex:

LEAVE BRONN ALONE.

The brains and the Bronn.

I heard some gossip last year that Jaime was going to get killed off by the end of season five, and I grew to accept that in my heart, so if it happens this year, my fan rage will be righteous, but I’ll get over it – if they give him a great scene to go out on.

Petra

Petra:

That’s a good point. I don’t really mind who they kill so long as they give them a good send-off. I mean, if Brienne, Pod, Missandei, Grey Worm, Yara, and Theon all bite the dust (godspleasenopleasepleasenoI’lldoanythingpleaseno), I’d have a hard time remaining invested, but if they all had fitting, poignant, and/or glorious death scenes… what more could I ask for?

Nate

Nate:

I think Bronn should’ve died last season, when he was poisoned (and omit those Sand Snake scenes).

Brienne, I hope, makes it to the very end.

Sue

Sue the Fury:

Dramatically, it would’ve made sense if Bronn had died in Dorne. I think they’ve come to rely on him to lighten the mood and play sounding board, so he gets to live. Who knows how long that will last, though. They could dispatch Bronn at any time, at this point.

    1. I’m hoping one of Danys Dragons die but I guess that won’t happen till they’re in westeros … How fitting would it be if rhaegal or viserion (spellings I know) snuffed it for being neglected all this time and then dany starts paying more attention to whichever 1 is left

        Quote  Reply

    2. Pycelle and Kevan, for a start. If not Varys, someone else will deal with them. Pretty sure Theo.. Reek isn’t gonna see the end of the season as well.

      Also, I’d like to see Ramsay bite the dust during the season 6 finale

        Quote  Reply

    3. Thanks guys! I love these murder of crows! 😀

      Most hoping for/highly likely:
      Ramsay (I love Iwan but, come on), Roose (if he is not undead), Walder Fing Frey, Balon (dead man walking), Melisandre (outlives her usefulness once Jon is resurrected?), Bronn (love him but he’s way extended beyond his book role), Jorah (would destroy me a bit but they gave him greyscale for a reason), Tommen (gold will be their crowns and gold their shrouds), Loras (executed by FM?), Trystane PLEASE, Kevan Lannister, GM Pycelle (just off him, he smells like a dead cat).

      Possibilities I’m accepting reluctantly:
      Cersei, Davos, Podrick, Theon, Asha/Yara, Varys, Daario, Margaery, Tormund, Hodor, Meera

      Will be completely heartbroken, please D&D&GRRM&Cogman, please don’t:
      Jaime, Brienne, Sansa, Arya, and don’t judge, Petyr Baelish.

      Unkillable this season/total shocker:
      Tyrion, Dany, Jon once resurrected, Missandei, Grey Worm, Sam and Gilly and little Sam, Bran

        Quote  Reply

    4. My first choice would be Trystane with Ellaria coming in a close second. I like Iwan but I’m tired of Ramsay and his sadism so I vote that he (and his 20 good men) can be killed off at any time.

      Overall, I think that the cast will thinned considerably by the end of S6, including one or two “majorish” characters. It is too early for Littlefinger to depart but I eagerly await that moment. Jorah can’t die until he makes it back to Westeros. I sadly think that Brienne and Theon may go this season.

    5. I would love for Dany to bite the bullet. I’m so bored with her indecisions. It’s constantly 2 step forward and 1 step back with her. We don’t need her for the endgame…just her dragons.

      All men (in her case women) must die.

    6. Vegodread,

      Sure, and all the plot and character developement goes down the shitter just like that . Why do i think you are a Stannis fanboy(most Dany haters are) who still can’t get over the fact that he’d dead and has no part in the end game of the series . Just give it up bro,he was just a B+ character,nothing more .

    7. I have this delicious fantasy that Sansa and Petyr are in the Vale and he is trying to have one of those “become the Stark you are meant to be” moments and she says “not this time” and starts to walk away, he grabs her and as he turns her around he gets too close to the Moon Door and OOPS….down he goes. Just delicious. It would be poetic for what he did to Lysa!! And to Sansa. Sure, Sansa will feel bad about it, but I won’t. 🙂 (PS I happen to love the Petyr character, but this is his just desserts a’comin’.)

        Quote  Reply

    8. Of course a bunch of people think Jaime and Cersei are going to die together.

      I’m going to be contrary and say it’s never going to happen like that, not this season, not ever.

      (Not that either are exempt from death at some point in the storyline, but they’re not dying together.)

      This season: Trystane, possibly Jorah, Ramsay by the end, Roose and Walda, Rickon. Maybe Pod or Bronn.

      I think most of the bigger characters are pretty safe TBQH. Further down the line, like maybe during Season 7 it’ll be Cersei and Tommen for sure (if they don’t die this season), Littlefinger, and the biggest character who has the most potential of dying before the very end is… Arya. Those are my predictions anyway.

        Quote  Reply

    9. Who do I want dead?
      Sand Snakes, Ellaria, Ramsay, Balon, Littlefinger, Randyll and Melisandre.
      Who won’t I care if they live or die?
      Grey Worm, Missandei, Daario, Lancel, Loras, Walder Frey, Kevan, Olly, Alliser, High Sparrow, Cersei, Black Fish and Dickon.
      Who I DO NOT want dead?
      Davos, Bronn, Tyrion, Jaime, Sam, Sansa, Podrick, Theon, Jorah, Edmure, Brienne and Bran.

      I think a good dramatic death would be SPOILERS! (just in case)

      Arya killed by Merrett Frey to prevent her from killing Jaime.

    10. I expect a big body count next season: Ramsay, Roose, Walda, Lancel, High Sparrow, Unella, Theon, Trystane, Ellaria, Balon, Loras, Jorah, Pycelle, Kevan, Qyburn, Tommen and the traitors from the Night Watch.

        Quote  Reply

    11. kit_hepburn,

      Oooo, gonna have to disagree with you on that one. I DO think that Jaime will kill Cersie, maybe not this coming season…but 7 most likely. And I think he will do it out of pure hatred for something she tells him or the way she treats him. And then kill himself. Maybe not the noble way to go, but even though Jaime has somewhat redeemed himself a bit, he still is the awful shit that pushed Bran from the window and had three children with his sister and much more!!

        Quote  Reply

    12. Cersei and Tommen. Not because I want Cersei to die, I LOVE Lena Headey, but if we’re talking dramatic, main character losses I think she’s done. And Tommen is a goner. I don’t know if Ramsay and/or Roose will die yet, I think they may make it to season 7 at least. I really want to see them get knocked down though.

      I really feel like Rickon and Osha aren’t going to make it. :/ I hope I’m wrong.

      Possible deaths for me would be Mel, Bronn, Pod will probably die… I think Jorah will stick around for at least one more season before succumbing to the greyscale. Brienne COULD die but I hope not!

      Jon, Sansa, Arya, Bran, Tyrion and Dany will make it to the end. Some may die once we’re there, but they will make it.

      Also, I HATE Pycelle. Please kill him.

        Quote  Reply

    13. More Starks will bite it……. Bran, but he will be hung up in roots as the new 3 eyed crow…. We will see Rickon this season and he will be hung up on a cross upside down, because there really isn’t any use for him in the plot, never was…… Sansa may take her own life when she discovers she is in a ‘family’ way with a baby Bolton……That will leave an expansion of Arya’s story line into season 7 when she gets some revenge for the family…… and dies trying….. Life is tough in Westeros and not full of fairy tales….. GRRM is a genius…. happy endings is for children……

      We know Jon isn’t REALLY a Stark, so he isn’t dead….. really…. sort of….maybe…..

        Quote  Reply

    14. I think Pycelle, Ellaria, Mel, Ramsay and Kevan are offed this season. Probably more.
      Maybe: Trystane, some Sandsnakes, some Sparrows, Lancel, Tommen, Walder Frey, Roose Bolton, Sansa, Loras.

      Besides those ^
      Someone I hope won’t die: Tyrion, Cersei, Jaime, Dany + dragons, Davos, Olenna, Margaery, Brienne, Varys, Mace.
      Someone I would like to see dead: Arya, Qyburn (if he goes on like in the books), Mountain – a bunch more.
      Someone I’d let fate decide: Pretty much everyone else.

        Quote  Reply

    15. Before reading, I was thinking Jamie/Cersei, but Jamie needs to go. Do something heroic and just go. I love him in the books but in the show, he’s been useless since he left Brienne. Frankly, she has been useless without him as well.

      Nobody kill my Arya. 🙁 She has way more story to go.

        Quote  Reply

    16. I want Dany and Tyrion die horribly and soon. They have become dull characters for me, with really forced storylines. Same as the Boltons (poor Walda and her baby!) and I don’t like Bronn anymore :/ Arya too, but like people said, she’s a walking dead girl now.

      Rickon’s death can add shock to the battle, but I’m counting on Brienne, Jaime, or both. Yes, Pod is dead too.

      I can’t stand Missandei and Grey Worm anymore. Jorah seems to die from grayscale, but there’s good chances he’s infecting half of Essos before (Daario, maybe. Or Daario discovers this and kill him).

      Team Trystane Die Already, please. I don’t now if it’s for the portrayal of the character (I thought Book!Trys was cute like a cinnamon roll, but this one…), how they didn’t develop his character at all, the actor or what. Same with the SS and Ellaria, some has to die in Dorne.

      It would be a delicious irony if Jon die again, LOL. It’s impossible to happen but LOL.

      And if LF has to die (he’s an ass, but love his scheemings) yes, Sansa all the way. Preferably with the LemonGate.

      Sam or Gilly no, please. They are like the only likable characters left.

    17. Who do I want dead?
      Sand Snakes & Ellaria (put us out of our misery already, Ramsay (tortured in the worst way possible), Balon, Melisandre, Cersei (Im over the sad old queen) Missandei & Grey Worm (sorry they make me squirm with their performances and/or storyline), Walder Frey (should be obvious why), Olly & Alliser (slow and tortuous as well) Jorah (ugh just put HIM out of his misery) Brienne (sorry folks just am not into her) High Sparrow (could die at same time as Cersei… that would be awesome)

      Who I won’t care if they live or die?
      Lancel, Loras, Bron, Kevan, Arya & Rickon, Podrick, Theon,

      Who I DO NOT want dead?
      Jon (of course he’s back) Dany, Tyrion, Jaime, Davos, Sam, Sansa, Littlefinger, Vary’s, Gendrey, Blackfish and Roose.

    18. Okay, in my opinion, this discussion is mostly just naming names, without analyzing who is killed when and why in the series.

      There seem to be two classes of deaths. 1) Small characters that really don’t matter – eg Karl Tanner, Pyp, Hizdar and 2) those large characters whose death provides a major shift in narrative and increases the tension – their death shuffles the chess board. E.g. Tywin, Ned, Robb, Stannis, Joeffrey, Jon (even un-dead, that changes the narrative.)

      So…

      Small characters – I’m not sure, any of them any time.

      Large characters – their deaths have to be at a moment in time where it will change the narrative. I think Arya is safe for now, as well as Bran, Sam, Theon, Davos, Brianne, Tyrion. Their deaths wouldn’t change the direction of the story (at this point in their arch anyway). Those that possibly will die according to this logic of “major narrative change” would be Dany, Margery, Tommen, Sansa (maybe depending on how her character develops this season), Kevan, Roose.

      This isn’t my theory. My unsullied friend came up with this, and successfully predicted all the deaths of major characters in Season 4 after Season 3.

        Quote  Reply

    19. S6 death predictions: Balon, Kevan, Pycelle, Tommen, Tormund, Roose Bolton, Ghost, one of the Snakes, Ellaria. . .and the entire Tyrell clan (replaced in power by House Tarly).

      S7-S8 death predictions: Walder Frey, Cersei, Bronn, Jorah, Daario, Trystane, Littlefinger, the Wall.

      Endgame death predictions: one Lannister brother, one Stark sister, Theon, Melisandre, Daenerys, Drogon, Rhaegal, Viserion and the Iron Throne. And Ramsay, Olly and Thorne as wights. 😉

      Survivors (hopefully): Davos, Rickon, Brienne, Yara, Pod, Summer, Shaggydog, Nymeria, Hodor, Meera, Osha, one Stark sister, one Lannister brother, one Sand Snake, Doran, Areo, Sam, Gilly and young Sam.

      Jon Snow and Bran Stark will survive but mysteriously disappear into the far North, never to be seen again and becoming part of the future legends.

    22. I agree with sue that D&D use Bronn for lighter scenes but disagree with the need to kill him off. His book arc is almost certainly finished so this gives the show makers a great way to bring us those funny one liners and songs. I can see Bronn ( and to the same extent Pod) making it to the end in the show as they r minor book characters that the show has expanded and who the fast majority of fans like.

        Quote  Reply

    23. I think the cull of the major characters will happen in S7. S6 will be the cull of more minor chacacters/plot threads that need to go. Sooo:

      Walder Frey, hopefully by Arya
      Balon Greyjoy
      Everyone in Dorne (sorry, I hate this storyline in the show)
      Tommen
      Dario
      Various members of the NW
      Ramsay, hopefully Sansa is somehow involved in offing him
      Grey Worm

      Actually time may be up for one major character – Cersei. I think Sir Robert Strong will win her trial ealier in the season, then she will die anyway by unexpected means at the end of the season.

      I think Jorah will surive so he can spread Greyscale to all and sundry before he goes. Makes no sense to have given him such a contagious disease for him to die before it spreads.

    24. Jaime’s girl,

      I think Randyll Tarly will sense Olenna and Margaery losing control of the situation and take advantage.

      The Tyrells replaced the Baratheons. Now it’s their turn to be replaced.

        Quote  Reply

    25. Another vote for offing Trystane. That character/actor sucked the life out of every scene he was in.

      I don’t want any more of the Stark kids to die. Certainly not Arya or Sansa (or Jon, but that’s a grey area anyway, considering that’s happened already). I also don’t want to see Tormund or Edd go, but I understand that they may have to be sacrificed, rather like the battle for the Wall: they need to demonstrate some real consequences if there’s a war. Kevan, Bronn, Lancel and Roose will die. And maybe Varys.

      Oh, and Olly and Aliser. R’hllor take them both!

        Quote  Reply

    26. Arya is probably going to survive over all of them. I can’t see her biting it. I really don’t think they’ll kill off either of the Stark girls actually. Who I’d like to see meet their end? RAMSAY, Walder Frey, Pycelle, Trystane, Roose, and Thorne. I will be very upset and probably throw things if Theon, Brienne, or Davos die. lol I’m bracing myself for

      Pod though. 🙁

        Quote  Reply

    27. Die, Pycelle, die! And take Balon Greyjoy and Walder Frey with you! I think it will happen. And Kevan (whom I rather like) will accompany them.
      Other goners: Trystane, Loras, Mace, Tormund (sorry!), Roose and Walda Bolton before the birth of a legitimate Bolton baby. Ramsay, I think, will stick around… he’s too good as an antagonist to disappear. Only next season.
      It’s possible for Cersei to die and I’d really miss Lena, but Arya must finish her. Wait, I prefer Jaime to do it! And survive… with Brienne… Well, I’m a silly romantic girl, I’m not paying attention :))
      I’m very afraid for Brienne and Pod, but who knows… Maybe they are still alive.
      Am I the only one who wants Olenna to survive?
      I don’t imagine what Jorah would do with his greyscale, but I don’t think he will die this season.

        Quote  Reply

    28. Why does everyone think Bronn is going to die? Just because someone has no influence over the “end-game” doesn’t mean they won’t make it. He got a bigger part in the show cause he’s a comic relief in a rather dark story. They’d lose more killing him than keeping him. The actor has great chemistry with EVERYONE (he could literally make a wall seem personable). They’d be pretty silly to kill him for the sake of killing him. That would truly be death without reason. Almost every other major death has some political/revenge plot connected to it. Bronn would just die. The end. There’s no reason.

      I didn’t understand all the “Bronn will die in season 5” posts and I don’t get why the same people are now assuming he’ll bite it in season 6. That being said, this is game of thrones and I wouldn’t be surprised if he died at some point–I just don’t see why he’s #1 on so many people’s lists of coming deaths.

        Quote  Reply

    29. Missandei And Greyworm need to go if only to spare us from more boredom. I love both actors but their storylines just aren’t interesting enough.

      I’d also love to see Sansa die. She’s never going to be strong enough in the game of thrones even if she becomes a little harder after all she’s been through.

      I’d hate to see Ramsey go until the very last season because he’s such fun to watch BUT if he’s going to die, he best be flayed alive and laughing while it’s happening. Poetic justice with a Ramsey twist! ?

    30. If Theon has to die I’d at least like him to make it until A Dream of Spring (or seasons 7/8) before doing so. I do have a horrible feeling he’s not long for this world, though. Which is a really difficult thought for me to deal with, because after him, I’m not sure which other characters in the show come close to that same level of investment I’ve been feeling.

      (Oh yeah, I think it’s Bran/Jaime/Davos. It just wasn’t immediately obvious to me that those were my next-favourites, because season 5 did strange things with them.)

      Other deaths… could be Cersei, Brienne, or Davos. But that’s my prediction for TWOW. There’s no telling which parts of TWOW happen in season 6 and which happen in season 7… so this is a doubly hard question to answer!

    31. The only death I will accept for Cersei will be if she decides to blow up the Red Keep with her in it.

      I believe it’s even been foreshadowed by GRRM

      If Lena Heady is gonna leave our tv screens, then she better leave in style.

    32. Looper,

      Yeah, I found the amount of people predicting Bronn’s death last season confusing. He’s comic relief; he doesn’t really need to be anything more than that, and the writers clearly love the character.

      As far as this season goes, among the regular cast I’d say the Boltons are toast for sure. There may be some trimming of the regular KL cast, depending on the pace of events there (though we know so little about that, it’s hard to say). It sounds like we can expect at least one notable casualty out of the Northern storyline, so somebody like Tormund or Davos may be on the chopping block.

      Characters like Cersei and Littlefinger will be around until at least Season 7.

      Rat Kook,

      Theon’s heading off into a plotline where he’s the only series regular involved, so I’d say his odds of surviving the season are excellent.

      Good point. If those rumours are true (I’m actually quite hazy on the details, by the way. Don’t want to know too much!), then I’m pretty confident he’ll survive right through to the end of the season. But then of course, there’s the ending.

      I feel like he’s going to be a part of something big again, where it all kicks off, and they might “move his death up” to coincide with that big thing. And in doing so, make the finale more intense/progressive, like what they did with old Stanners in season 5. I really hope not, but it could happen.

    34. S6 will be the season of the undead. Whoever dies during the season will come back in one form or another.

      Seriously though, as far as valar morghulis goes for S6, I guess…
      Walda (and Domeric), Roose, Ramsay and many other Bolton supporters
      Balon (lazy 3rd leech willing)
      Olly, Alliser and the other NW mutineers
      Jorah
      Bloodraven
      Loras (every year I wish this)
      Kevan, Pycelle, R Strong and Lancel
      Walder and many Freys
      Beric/Thoros (?)
      Mel and Ghost (much weeping expected…but will Jon 2.0 move from direwolf to dragon?)
      Many Dothraki
      Tommen
      Yara

    35. RandomGoTfan,

      Totally agree. Speaking of unreliable narrators, Cersei Lannister, and she’s the only one who believes in that “born together, die together” crap. She also believes that if Jaime had gotten her note, he would have come to her, (he burned it and left her for dead) and that he would never have gone off with Brienne (uh…which is exactly what he did.)

      My death picks are:
      At least one Stark, Rickon, Arya or Sansa. That’s the shocking E9 death. I prefer it not be Rickon. Forced to pick, Arya.
      Two of these three Greyjoys, Balon, Asha/Yara, Euron. Forced to pick, Balon and Asha.
      Two Lannisters, Kevan, Cersei or Tommen. Forced to pick, Tommen and Kevan.
      One Tyrell, Loras, Mace or Olenna. Forced to pick, Mace.
      Three of the following: Jorah, Daario, Pod, Bronn, Tormund, Dickon Tarly, Qyburn, Pycelle. Forced to pick, Daario, Pod and Pycelle.

      Easy dead picks, Roose, Walda, Trystane, Ellaria, Tyene, Thorne.

      Safe through the season, Margaery, Theon, Bran, High Sparrow, Daeny, Tyrion, Sam, Jaime, Brienne, Ramsay, Doran, Varys, Baelish, Randyll, Jon and Ramsay.

    36. Such venom! Delicious. As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods–they kill us for their sport. The gods here are all GRRM–he seems to take pleasure in killing off characters. My crystal ball is muddied by the fact that we have three seasons left rather than two. The ‘removals’ will have to be paced out. Who to kill, who to kill…hmm.

      Predictions for this season:
      Definitely:
      Balon, Three-eyed raven, Thorne and Olly and any Crows who don’t ‘desert’ to go south with Jon, Kevan, Pycelle, Mace Tyrrell, Walder Frey, Roose and Fat Walda Bolton, Ramsay Snow, Sweetrobyn, everyone at the Tower of Joy other than young Ned and Howland, the Mountain, Qyburn, Tommen, several Dothraki, THE Son of the Harpy.

      Probably:
      Jorah Mormont, Melisandre, Yezzan zo Qaggaz, Pod, Bronn, a key White Walker but not Night’s King.

      Possibly:
      Everyone but Jon and Dany. But truly possibly–Lancel, High Sparrow,
      Septa Unella, Margery, Daario, Euron, Theon, Brienne, Sandor Clegane, one or all of the Sand Snakes, Doran, Trystane, Ghost.

      Will live to fight another season:
      All living Starks. Yara, Dany, Tyrion, Varys, Ser Ilyn Payne, Davos, Osha, Nymeria, Jaime, Cersei, Edmure, Blackfish, Hodor, Meera, Sam+Gilly, Randall Tarly, Littlefinger, the three dragons, Grey Worm, Missandei, Meribald, most of the Dothraki and Unsullied and Wildlings, Tormund, Queen of Thorns, Illyrio, lords involved in the GNC, Hotpie, and Gendry still rowing.

      Who I’d like to squash like a fly this season:
      Anyone Dornish (though the show needs a Dornish leader–maybe bring in Arianne), Daario, the child-burner Melisandre, all the Sparrow-folk, Qyburn, Pycelle, Olly, Roose, Ramsay, WALDER FREY. If the powers-that-be deem it necessary to kill a Stark, I”d be willing to let Sansa go, especially if she takes down Littlefinger with her.

      Although I love how many posters have taken who will die and who have focused it on who should and shouldn’t die. Give me back my Shireen dammit!

      Who WILL die…
      Tormund
      Jorah
      Baleon (thank GAWD)
      Ghost
      Wun Wun
      Melisandre
      the Night’s Watch, including Edd

      Which one would I murder if I could?
      Grey Worm… and resurrect Barrisan Selmy.
      Is that enough?

    38. I don’t think Ramsay dies in season 6 because Theon is not near him. I believe in show and books Theon kills Ramsay. I think the show foreshadowed as early as season 2 when Ramsay wasn’t even a seen face yet, but was off screen blowing the horn to annoy Theon outside Winterfell. The dialogue they wrote for Theon in that scene was “”I will kill that man. I don’t care how many arrows they feather me with, how many spears they run through me. I will kill that horn blowing cunt before I fall.”

      I believe it too. It’s added dialogue by D&D and I don’t view it as an accidental addition either. It’s clever foreshadowing.

    39. Kings Landing casualties : Frankenmount goes beserk and dispatches High Sparrow, a Tyrell or two and Pycele. Elsewhere, Ramsay at the hand of Jon Snow, or Sansa but would love Ghost to have a treat. The NW crumbles, desertions, bro on bro murder. Davos should kill Mel but I fear the Red Witch eludes death for now and Davos buys it. Sniff. In Essos, Greyworm, Jorah. All I got. 😀

    40. This is the list of characters that I think will meet The Stranger next season:

      Tommen – “Gold will be their shrouds…”
      Roose– Ramsay will kill him
      Fat Walda– Ramsay will kill him, along with baby Bolton
      Ramsay – Killed in the Snowbowl. Euron is ready to take over his role as the new psycho bad guy.
      Tormund– Dies in the Snowbowl.
      Rickon– Dies in the Snowbowl.
      Edd– Dies in the Snowbowl (sadly)
      Loras Tyrell– Cersei’s revenge
      Septa Unella– The Mountain will snap her neck
      High Sparrow– The Mountain will smash his head
      Ellaria– Nobody will miss her.
      Kevan– Killed by Varys.
      Pycelle– Killed by Varys.
      Alliser Thorne– The White Walkers will kill him, Castle Black fall this Season (IMHO).
      Balon– will feast with the Drowned God very soon.
      Walder Frey – This one I’m not so sure, but we know that he is back this season and Arya is in the Riverlands in the last episodes, so…

    41. Tyrion the myrion,

      Reader,

      I agree with you 100% about Daeny. She is nothing without her dragons. Bran will warg into Drogon, problem solved. The other 2 hate her for locking them up and wouldn’t mind that someone offed her too. At this point we can also get rid of Greyworm, Melisande, the sell sword guy and of course, Jorah, who already has one foot in the grave anyway. Maybe then, Tyrian will be able to put the peddle to the meddle and head towards Westeros for a long awaited reunion with his dear siblings.

      I love it when a plan comes together!!!

    42. Flora Linden:
      S6 death predictions: Balon, Kevan, Pycelle, Tommen, Tormund, Roose Bolton, Ghost, one of the Snakes, Ellaria. . .and the entire Tyrell clan (replaced in power by House Tarly).

      S7-S8 death predictions: Walder Frey, Cersei, Bronn, Jorah, Daario, Trystane, Littlefinger, the Wall.

      Endgame death predictions: one Lannister brother, one Stark sister, Theon, Melisandre, Daenerys, Drogon, Rhaegal, Viserion and the Iron Throne. And Ramsay, Olly and Thorne as wights.

      Survivors (hopefully): Davos, Rickon, Brienne, Yara, Pod, Summer, Shaggydog, Nymeria, Hodor, Meera, Osha, one Stark sister, one Lannister brother, one Sand Snake, Doran, Areo, Sam, Gilly and young Sam.

      Jon Snow and Bran Stark will survive but mysteriously disappear into the far North, never to be seen again and becoming part of the future legends.

      Your theory about the entire House Tyrell being obliterated and replaced by the Tarlys is intriguing… I had never thought of that, but I could see it.

    44. Im with something in my head pretty clear.

      -They wont kill Roose AND Ramsay in season 6. Just one will say good bye.

      -They wont kill walder frey until season 7, arya will be in the riverlands in the end of the season and it will be very rushed if happens that fast.

      The characters i think CAN die in season 6:

      Balon
      Loras
      Olenna
      Tommen
      Quiburn
      Lancel
      Pycelle
      Kevan
      Broon
      Elaria
      Trystane
      One sand snake
      Jorah
      Tormund
      Davos
      Fat walda
      Podrick
      Thorne
      Olly
      Yohn Royce
      Small jon umber
      Lord karstark
      Osha
      Septa umnela
      Won won
      Some wolf
      Lothar frey and Black frey
      Some Khal
      Roose OR Ramsay
      Blackfish OR Edmure

      Of course they wont murder this much of characters but i think the ones who can die in season 6 are in this list.

    45. So the characters that might die it in the next season in my opinion.

      Tormund
      Roose or Ramsay…one might survive this season
      Walda and her baby…Ramsay is totally going to do something here
      Ellaria
      Daario or Jorah…preferably boring Daario
      Thorne and rest of the Night’s Watch including Olly.
      Some Khals
      Pycelle and Kevan
      Tommen
      Yezzan
      Balon
      Ghost
      Edd
      Wun Wun
      Davos
      Septa Unella
      One of the Sand Snakes
      TOJ couple of people and one will be I guess Ser Arthur Dayne
      Interesting prediction by Flora Linden about House Tyrell and Tarly. I can see some Tyrell’s dying in season 6.

      Davos, Edd, Ghost, Tormund and Wun Wun. I hope at least on of the them will survive. Don’t know about Mel this season. A lot of pros and cons for her death.

      As for future. Tough to say, but I’m 100% about Bran surviving this whole damn thing and replacing Brynden Rivers.

    46. Characters that might die next season:
      Roose, Walda and her baby – Ramsey’s doing. Unfortunately I have the feeling Ramsey might survive the season.
      Tormund, Rickon, maybe Ghost ( Snowbowl)
      Edd (either Snowbowl or at the Wall if the Wall is coming down this season)
      Thorne and the other mutineers
      Kevan and Pycelle
      Tommen
      Mace and Loras/ Margaery one of the two
      Ellaria, Trystane and one of the sandsnakes.
      A lot of Khals
      Greyworm, Daario(pleease!) Jorah is probably safe till he reaches Westeros.
      The Waif. Walder Frey will be killed by Arya next season.

      Among the major characters the only one I can see dying this season is Brienne. Since I believe Jaime will kill Cersei, he might survive this season atleast.

        Quote  Reply

    47. I love how long these lists are. ?

      I agree that this season will be mostly culling off the secondary characters again. So, let’s start:
      The North: Davos, Mel, Alliser Thorne, Roose, Fat Walda, assorted lords introduced this season;
      The Riverlands: Bronn, some Freys;
      King’s Landing: Kevan, Pycelle, Loras, Olenna, Tommen;
      Iron Islands: Balon, duh;
      Dorne: Ellaria
      Braavos: no one, but we won’t see it again after the season;
      Meereen: no one, but Missandei and Grey Worm will inherit the city and remain behind after the season
      Dothraki: a lot of Khals, obviously. I hope Dany keeps one or two, though, they look cute.

      In short, I think that the Northern storyline and King’s Landing are the two that need the most weeding.

        Quote  Reply

    48. The two I want to die the most are Walder Frey and Ramsay. I think old Walder might get it at the end of the season, hopefully at the hand of a Stark, or by someone from one of the houses that lost family at the Red Wedding. The only thing I don’t want to happen is for Walder to die warm in his bed with a new wife, believing he showed all the other houses how great he was. Sadly, I think Ramsay will be around for at least another season. somebody mentioned Septa Unella. Yep, I think she goes – Cersei will see to that early on, whatever else she does.

      As for anyone else that must be chunked off the cliff, I don’t care so much. I am content to watch how it plays out. Can’t see much use for Ellaria or any of the Sandsnakes. Sorry girls. I think Trystane will make it through the season – I can’t believe Doran’s plans have been introduced just to puff out to no use whatever.

      Also, Jorah will be a hero for Dany one last time and go out in a blaze of glory, before she finds out about the grayscale. He won’t want her to be grossed out by that. Balon, yes, although, even with the excitement generated by book readers over the Euron stuff, right now nothing about that facet of the story excites me in the least.

      Neither Davos nor Tormund had better die, the story needs some solid secondary characters to help out the main ones. Varys will be around to the bitter end, as will Tyrion. They’re not gonna kill Tyrion. He will outlive Cersei, that’s for sure.

    50. Lol, what an odd topic to stay in one’s head: who one would like to see murdered in a show, either for effect or personal satisfaction. Was just about to go back to sleep, and thought of this: of all the characters in all the seasons of the show, I can only think of three times any were asked about how they foresaw their own deaths. (I’m sure you will correct me if you remember others.)

      Tyrion, by Shagga – I think Tyrion’s answer was at 80, in his own bed, with a woman’s mouth around … well, you remember.

      Jaime – who told Bronn he wanted to die in the arms of the woman he loved, whom many now believe will be Brienne. That could very possibly happen this season; if so, it will break the last latch on Cersei’s sanity, and King’s Landing is doomed. Bronn – who wanted to have his own house and lands and watch his sons fight over their share.

      I think each of them will go in exactly that way, too. Why everyone thinks Bronn will die this season is a mystery to me. From the beginning, he was portrayed as a survivor. He doesn’t always fight with honor, but he makes it through. He’s one of those people who by charm, skill, savvy or plain dumb luck, always make it through.

    51. I don’t understand the several mentions of Arya dying. As she has been mostly disconnected from the main plot for a long time, if she dies before reconnecting and playing a crucial role in the endgame then it makes her entire story pointless. That would be bad storytelling, it seems to me.

      I say this not just because I love Arya (although I do), but just because it would make no sense in the context of the storyline.

      So from a narrative point of view, the deaths I would vote for are those who have fulfilled their purpose to the broader story (some of which I will be sad to see go):

      1. Roose Bolton
      2. Bronn (even though I’d like to see him in the Dream Team for the battle for the dawn)
      3. All the Night’s Watch
      4. Melisandre (after her role, if any, in the Jesus moment)
      5. Jorah
      6. Daario (same as Bronn, a dream team candidate, but also could be on thin ice)
      7. Cersei (I think Jamie has a role to play, later, but could be wrong on that)
      8. Loras (hope not, but….)
      9. Margaery
      10. Olenna
      11. Mace Tyrell
      12. High Sparrow
      13. Pycelle
      14. Kevan
      15. Walder F-ing Frey

      Who could die : Brienne or Jaime (Pick one), Cersei, Bronn, Podrick, Qyburn, Tormund, Osha, Melisandre (though she would have to meet with Arya first), Pate/a random boy offscreen, Littlefinger or Sansa (Pick one), Beric offscreen, Thoros offscreen, Walder Frey, Meera, Trystane, Ellaria, the Sand Snakes, Olly, ser Alliser, Edd

      Who is totally not going to die : the ‘main’ characters (Jon, Daenerys, Tyrion, Bran, Arya) and the puppet masters (Varys, Littlefinger, Doran)

      Look at Nikolaj’s place in the opening credits, it’s not time yet (I hope!)

      As for Jaime and Cersei dying together, I would not be surprised, valonqar and all.

      Cersei trying to blow up the red keep, Aerys style, I can see it. I always felt like it would be a sacrificial ending for Jaime, repeating the Aerys situation again, except Cersei trying to destroy KL and Jaime being forced to kill them both to save everyone 🙂

      Ramsay, I like Iwan but it’s time for Ramsay (and the Boltons as a whole) to go
      -If LF dies it will be at the end of the season, by Sansa obviously, but I think he will survive until next season. I can see him team up with Jon and mess with his head like a Ned/LF reboot but not with the same outcome.
      Balon, it’s about time
      Walder Frey
      -I have a bad feeling either Brienne or Jaime will die this season,

      even more if they cross path with Arya

      what about « I want to die into the arms of the woman I love » and « who wants to die saving a Lannister » either way I see the surviving one going North to join Sansa/Jon.

      Pycelle, Kevan, killed by Varys at last

      -I can see Cersei pulling some kind of murder plot against Marg, if that happens it could lead to Tommen’s suicid. Cersei would lose her last child by her own actions, thus going all mad, burning KL to the ground and dying herself ? (If Cersei die, Jaime survive, we can’t lose both the same season)
      Ellaria executed by Doran
      Jorah. It will pain me but we need to lose someone in that storyline before Dany arrive in Westeros, and he’s the only one I can see go. Oh yeah and Missandei and Grey Worm too.
      After reading some comments, I think Jorah lives to spread Greyscale to Westeros, gonna be fun.

      Survivors (I hope) personal liking of for storyline:
      Jon 2
      Ghost (please don’t kill him)
      Arya (certainly not until the end of her list and, hopefully, reunion with Nymeria)
      Bran
      Brienne
      Tyrion
      Daenerys (at least until end of show)
      Bronn (I like him)
      Jaime
      Lady Olenna
      Pod (would be a great loss for women!)
      Gendry (or else we never know if he lives or dies)
      Davos
      The Hound (if alive now)

      Varys (although I’d miss him)

      I could spend all day thinking of everyone but that’s a start.

    57. I think the following characters will bite the dust in season 6: Roose, Walda, Balon, Jorah, Melisandre, Kevan, Pycelle, Ellaria and Walder Frey

    58. I think Mel HAS to go for one simple reason – to add a bit of tension back into Jon’s future storylines. If we know that she’s still around then she becomes the ultimate death safety net for Jon – we know he could potentially be resurrected any time. I think she has to go.

      One other thing strikes me. There are many characters listed by readers as ‘untouchable’. GoT has gained a reputation as the show that turned audience expectations on their head – ‘nobody is safe’. But it’s not really true is it? Some people ARE safe – they have plot armour as Sue nicely put it. It’s one thing killing off your lead character in the first season. It’s completely another doing it after 5 or 6. Dany, Jon, Tyrion… we know they are in until the endgame, we’ve invested too much in them for it to be any other way. So in many respects, despite its reputation, GoT is quite predictable in terms of the primary protagonists.

    59. Vegodread,

      And you’re still wrong, i’m 100% certain Dany will survive until the last season at least if not the last episode but it will be fun seeing you rage when you realise how wrong your prediction is . FYI ,Bran is a non character,so no he won’t take Dany’s place,sorry to ruin your hopes and dreams .

    60. You guys should do a contest or two based on this! Even if it’s just for bragging rights. Line up all the main/sub characters, and allow users to select when they suspect each character will die and keep a running count. So if I pick Cersie to die in episode 7 of season 6, and she does, I get 10 point, if she dies in episode 6 or 8, I get 5 point and if she dies in episode 5 or 9, 1 point.

    61. Ramsay needs to die r..e..a..l..l..y..s..l..o..w..l..y..a..n..d..p..a..i..n..f..u..l..l..y please. I don’t care what it does for the story, I just want it, as do quite a few others by the looks of it!

      IIRC the Tyrells, Boltons and Freys are the main Houses who haven’t lost anyone yet? So they are probably all due some grief. And if Kermit’s cousin Maggy is correct Tommen is unlikely to be around much longer.

      With approx 30 episodes left we’re at the two-thirds point and they can start culling anyone who isn’t needed for the endgame, although I’m not a fan of death for the sake of it. Apart from Ramsay obviously. As we seem to be meeting quite a few new people this series I vote for at least a couple of newbies biting the dust too.

    62. This is craziness. With 10 episodes in season 6, many have up to 20+ characters leaving the mortal coil next season. So two or three people die each episode? That is more than last season which had a large share of characters die. I guess it could happen. Fun to discuss.

      As ever I see the main characters being in it until the end or very close to the end. Jon, Daeny, Tyrion, Bran, Arya and Sansa. (Sansa is a late entry to that top tier, she may not be that safe.) Everyone else is fair game and for some the dye seems to have already been cast from predictions or prophecy. After that, according to what I have read/seen of GRRM and D & D, everyone and anyone is fair game.

    63. If we are supposed to guess who will die to affect the plot then I’d have to say, unfortunately, Tommen, Loras and/or Margery, Jaime, Sansa. Those deaths could definitely sway the plot arc, but they are not all who I’d like to see die. Ramsey is at the top of that list and much as I like the character to date that is Littlefinger I must say sooner or later his machiavellian ways MUST catch up to him unless he’s the one that’s going to end up on the iron throne…lol.

      There are many more I’d like to see dead, but in trying to think about the plot the above are the ones I’d think of first because who wants to think of Tyrion, Jorah, Arya or the rest yet.

    64. Phil Necro,

      Cersei might bite it season 7 but not before. Just way too many things needs to be done and said. I would say meeting betwen her and Daeny is on the cards also.

      Ross,

      If they made a point to the audience that his resurrection is special and unique. No this is not the reason. In fact her presence would make things more interesting. Bit of mirror to Stannis and Mel.

    65. Cersei could banish Jamie to the Wall just in time for him to become the Wight who, ultimately, returns to Kings Landing to choke the life from Dear Sister. That would be satisfying.
      Ramsay could come to a completely random, but terrifying, end – but only after he’s done in Fat Walda, the heir, and a few others.
      And I want to see the Freys decimated – the whole lot of them – perhaps by a pack of Direwolves under Arya’s command.
      And wouldn’t it be lovely if Sansa made her way back to the Vale forces in time to tell the Vale lords just what happened to Lysa, and how Littlefinger has played them all? That double-cross would be delicious.

    67. There HAS to be a major character death this season. I agree with most: Tommen, Bronn, Balon, Walder Frey, probably Rickon-DONE! But I still think there has to be a fan fave that will shock somewhere. I think Tormund, Pod, Loras, and probably a direwolf are all in danger. Not sure about Jamie, since I believe he will kill Cersei in Season 7. I’m pretty sure Dany, Tyrion, and even (yawn) Jorah are safe.

        Quote  Reply

    68. Mother of madness,

      Well, he only made those predictions about season 4.

      Using his logic, I think Jamie will be safe. If he dies, it’s hard to see how that will change the narrative direction significantly. Unless you count Cersie going completely bonkers.

      I do think there are characters Martin loves, and doesn’t really kill for no reason, even though it seems like it to us. It’s pretty obvious to me who he “loves”: Jon, Sansa, Arya, Brianne, Davos, Jamie, Danny, Tyrion, Bran, Theon, Cersie (yes, Cersie and Theon). I don’t believe he will kill any of these characters unless they are in a position where their death will change the entire story line. Danny is the only candidate at this point. (Personally I don’t think he would kill Danny, cause she seems to be his magical exception character.) Maybe Sansa depending on how she develops in the North.

      Any characters in positions of power are really in danger – Roose, Tommen, Margery, Rickon.

    69. RandomGoTfan,

      I have never agreed with a comment more. Cersei is so hard to love (she’s just easier to all-out hate, honestly), but Lena Headey is magical and has played her so magnificently. If Cersei is going to die, Lena deserves a blaze of glory.
      Would love to see the Red Keep go up in flames…and a boom.

    70. JCDavis,
      Hey, I just had 13 (and I forgot about Bloodraven, so maybe 14)! But Roose + Fat Walda are a couple, and so are Missandei and Grey Worm, who, I think, will be left behind in Meereen. So I think they maybe should count as 1.5 instead of 2?

      What I, in turn, don’t understand are the people talking about Walder Frey. If Arya kills him this season, what will she be doing the next?

    71. Hi everyone. Been around here for a while now just reading the comments but I guess it’s time to join the communion! o/

      On Cersei, Loras, Jaime and the “leaked spoilers”;

      Now, I know some of you people also read the “leaked season 6 ” thing. Usually I don’t believe in these things nor do I read them at all. Only this time I couldn’t fight the curiosity I was born with.
      So aside the fact is the thing fake or not, did anyone else get that feeling of “Of course…” when Cersei died in the hands of Loras? The image was so vivid in my head when I read that part that I couldn’t believe I had not thought about it before. Cersei was never the kind of person to see the bigger picture around her. From time to time she knocks over a brick but does not pay attention to where the dominos fall. Loras has had his time, both the books and the series with Cersei and Jaime for this to make sense. If I’d start digging the books now maybe I’d even find some nice foreshadowing for this. Also, does anyone else think that Loras and The Mountain are destined to meet again? It might even involve The Hound someway and that would connect with the weird shit that Bran dreamed in A Game Of Thrones. Maybe in a trial but I think not. There will be parallels with Roberts Rebellion now that we’re reaching the end-game and biggest of them I thinks might be the fall of King’s Landing. As a writer how could you now take that opportunity? Imagine a half or some of the characters we know fighting for their lives, surrounded by chaos and death and wildfire. And in the midst of it a showdown between The Mountain and Loras and Hound (Jaime?) in the throne room after Cersei’s “Burn them all” flipping and a sword in the back. To me it makes perfect sense storywise. Both Loras and Jaime might even make it to the end because that is what noone is expecting and it also makes for a good story. That scene where Loras rides to Sansa to hand her the rose in my mind is some hard foreshadowing and you know what Im talking about 😉 Jaime’s last appearance in A Dream Of Spring will be where he sets out to a journey far, far north, to find Brandon Stark and bring him home safely. He’s staring at The New Build Wall behind him and walks out into the sunset… with 13 good men beside him.

      Allright, first comment. Feels good! Let me know what you guys think. 🙂

    72. Yaga,

      LOL. Then you restrained yourself. 😉

      For Arya, I think she is the best of the “Stark” group to be the one to do in Walder Frey…it just seems poetic justice that one of the Stark’s would do it, for the Red Wedding of course. I have no clue what Arya would do after that…but if she doesn’t do this, then what does she do anyway? I think there must be some relevance to her character to have built it up this far through 5 seasons and that isn’t just the undoing of one Walder Frey, but much more.

      Hellooooooo *waves* and welcome to the Wall. I think there’s just one important bit missing from your analysis – Ramsay dying r..e..a..l..l..y..s..l..o..w..l..y..a..n..d..p..a..i..n..f..u..l..l..y. Just because 😉 😀

      For a twist that changes the whole story, rather than just one of the many parts that make it up, I reckon multiple deaths would be needed. Personally the only ones that would make me go “whaaaaaat?!?!?!” would be Jon, Dany and Tyrion all dying before the final series even starts. I think it’s fairly safe to say the chances of that happening are very low, although I would never say impossible.

        Quote  Reply

    76. It’s also possible that most of the characters who have shown worrier tendencies will survive this season. It makes sense to have them stick around for the battle scenes with the white walkers. That means: Jon, Jamie, Brienne, Bronn, Tommond, Arya, Ramsey, Davos, etc.

      I definitely think that all the schemers (Verys, Little Finger, Sansa, Cerci, Margery, et al) will all be vanquish by the end of season 6. They will serve no purpose going forward. I doubt the White Walkers will give a shit about whose the king of what, whose sleeping with who, much less who’s a bastard of what.

      Tyrion, though more a screamer than a worrier will stick around. He has a brilliant strategic mind for battles.

    77. Sue the Fury,
      Hmm? But that was the question I was replying to…

      For the question of who needs to die to provide drama, I think:
      – Davos (to give Ramsay a corpse),
      – Roose (to unleash Ramsay in full),
      – Mel (at a funeral pyre, to provide sacrifice with Ghost),
      – Bloodraven (to leave Bran alone),
      – Thorne (for an *oh, f*ck* look at the falling Wall),
      – Balon (to jumpstart Euron),
      – Tommen (to kill the last chance of reconciliation between Cersei and Jaime).
      Also random khals, Meereeneese, wildings and whatnot.

      LoL – I think most everyone who has posted an answer here, including myself, were gleefully happy to have a chance to express frustration and deep longing about who they wanted to die the most. But to affect the most dramatic plot twist – Petyr Baelish. He has been the nasty glue and foul momentum, so to speak, behind most of the mayhem in the Kingdom. Once he is gone, the pressure he is putting in certain places goes away. Except, I don’t think he is going to die this season.

      I wouldn’t be so sure about Margaery. Anyway Daeny and Tyrion will meet Cersei. Depends on who is the valonqar and for some reason it wasn’t included in Maggy’s prophecy. Maybe it was too obvious or they will do something different. Jaime said he will die in the hands of the woman he loves and that is Brienne. Him going around Tarth and looking like a lost puppy. I guess Jaime and Cersei will break their relationship for good next season.

    80. Why do many think Arya will die soon?
      It cant happen. And neither will Mel. Mel and Arya will meet again based on Mel’s words when she met Arya in season 3. Not sure when but cant see it happening in season 6 based on the way things ended in season 5.
      What the hell is a snowbowl?

      Characters that should die in season 6 or may die due to their story lines:
      Tommen
      Kevan
      Pycelle
      High Sparrow
      Loras or Margery, not both
      The mountain (although I think hes going to help Cersei rid some of the characters I just listed, I think his time will come to an end. Not really sure how LOL! Maybe a sand snake will get him for Oberyn)
      Ellaria, a couple of Sand Snakes
      Ramsay or Roose, preferably both. I hope Sansa gets Ramsay. But she left, so not sure how she would do that
      Alliser and most of the nights watch are done like dinner…. the Wall is going to be a mess.
      IFFFFFFF they bring by Walder Frey, which I hope, only to see him dead. I am still not over the red wedding. I hope that a Stark does the deed. the only that I can think of would be Arya.
      I think Theon will die soon. I hope so. I am over him!!!!! I am doing a rewatch of the seasons and just started season 2, and I keep think, wow, he is dumb!!!!!!
      I think Dany will lose a lot of her unsullied, as well as Daario. But she will gain the Khalasar.

      I cant think of any more.

      People who will UNDIE this season:
      JON SNOW *prayer hands*

      You know, if I consider who I – want -to die… The High Sparrow. Ramsay, for example, I’m pretty much sure will either die or join the White Walkers and then die. So I’m pretty peaceful about it; sooner or later, he will die. But the High Sparrow, I’m not sure he will. So I’m concerned about that.

    84. Whose death would bring about the most immediate change and cause the greatest chaos this season? Mace Tyrell. Before you hoot mercilessly, hear me. Cersei thought she was being smart in sending Mace away to Bravos to renegotiate terms with the Bankers. Her orders to Meryn Trant were obviously to kill Mace after the negotiations were done. We don’t hear her give those orders, we only see the obvious glee in her eyes when she tells Mace that Trant will be going with him. She then has Marge and Loras locked up, thinking she has control of Olenna in her palm.

      Arya put a dent in those plans by killing Trant. (Yay Arya, always finding a way to mess up Cersei’s plans.) Mace will return in Season 6, and he’s not likely to be happy about his children being imprisoned. If Cersei manages to kill him, without also killing Olenna, the shit will hit the proverbial fan.

      Loras and Marge are Mace’s heirs. If Olenna calls her bannermen and orders all shipments of food and goods immediately stopped, where does that leave Kings Landing? To starve and in the path of onslaught from an angry Randyll Tarley and those armies. Let’s see how loyal the people are to the HS when EVERYbody is starving.

      Mace’s armies coming to attack was something Cersei didn’t think of. The only thing that registered in her mind was her contempt at the seemingly harmless man. Tyrion would have thought of it – he was schooled, and saw that Pod was schooled, in who (which houses) was loyal to whom. If Trystane is still alive, maybe being held prisoner, how hard would it be for Mace’s death to be used as impetus to drum support from Dorne to overthrow Lannisters once and for all? Everybody gets revenge on the Lannisters, Jaime will probably stay in exile and use his talents to fight WW, maybe even to ally with Jon, and LF might be screwed permanently.

      So, my final vote for death that causes the most twist in 6 is Mace.

    86. Mother of madness: Love the way you think. Could indeed be very interesting . Martin loves underdogs and Mace is one if ever there was. Also seeing Jaime fight alongside Jon would be supercool

      Thanks, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. Think about those Bravosi bankers. They did strike a deal with Mace to renegotiate the loans to Kings Landing and the Lannisters/Baratheons, based on Marge being queen, and on the strength of the output of food and goods from Highgarden. We know the deal was favorable, because Mace came out singing opera. If bankers have told you to go fuck yourself, you don’t come out singing.

      I’ve been wondering ever since Stannis’ death how the bankers were going to be brought back into the picture. They will be highly annoyed at the losses they took with Stannis. They aren’t likely to twiddle their thumbs if they hear that Mace, with whom the deal was struck, is dead, and his daughter and son, who might be liable for the debt, are locked up. They will call in all debts, foreclose on Kings Landing, maybe even on Casterly Rock. Oh, Baratheon debt tallied up during Robert’s reign and to Stannis? Take Dragonstone, as well. (and all that Dragon glass. What will be the price for Dragonglass when the kingdom starts clamoring for it, do you think?)

      We already know Jaime will have some of the Kings Landing army with him messing around in the Riverlands. Who will be in KL to defend against Tarley and company? or Doran? Uh-huh – bubkes. If Casterly Rock is threatened and news of Northern rebellion AND WW drifts to Jaime, he’s going to be in a fix deciding what to do. Do we think he’s going to be bothered running back to Cersei at her command. No, me neither. So Mace’s death would bring a great excuse for a lot of factions to get moving, maybe even factions across the sea.

      And, I don’t know, does anyone think it would be too low for Bankers to hire a Faceless Man to go whack someone in Westeros? Maybe miss Arya gets a ticket home courtesy of Bank of Bravos.

      I think only in the books, because I don’t remember it in the show. I’m rooting for Edd to make it through. I couldn’t believe when both Grenn and Pyp went down last year. I kept talking to the tv like a dummy, “Not Grenn and Pyp, oh shit.” I hadn’t even know I liked them that much until they were gone. So I hope that at least one of the three makes it.

      A Gary Stu is the male equivalent of a Mary Sue: a character who is too perfect, or who has all sorts of highly unusual skills and talents that just come naturally and are not earned by hard study and practice. Often such a character is the author’s wish-fulfillment projection of him- or herself into the story, especially in fanfic or other works by inexperienced writers.

      I so agree with you about Edd! I will be crushed if he dies. I have the same perverse affection for him that I feel for Eeyore in the Pooh books and Marvin in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

      Balon, The whole Nightswatch when the wall falls, Kevan, Pycelle, Mace Tyrrell, Walder Frey, Roose and Fat Walda Bolton, Ramsay Snow, Sweetrobyn. Tommen is not surviving this season and likely goes episode 6-7 next season just after Jamie leaves for the Riverlands. Elleria will go too after posioning Marcella.

      Probably:
      Jorah Mormont (Greyscale), Melisandre, Pod, Bronn, Missandei (don’t see that she’s really needed), Lancel Lannister (loses to the Un-Mountain in trial).

      Possibly:
      Cersei and Jamie are the two big characters that could potentially go as neither are likely end game players and it must be approaching their time to go in order to streamline stories. I’m guessing Cersai goes shortly before Dany arrives in Westeros though and doesn’t leave much of Kings Landing behind her! Littlefinger may also go towards the end of the season at the hands of Jon/Sansa.

      Will live to fight another season:
      Only Jon, Dany and Tyrion are 100% safe this season in my opinion. I’d rate Theon/Arya/Sansa as 95% safe.

    99. Tyrion the myrion:
      Vegodread,

      And you’re still wrong, i’m 100% certain Dany will survive until the last season at least if not the last episode but it will be fun seeing you rage when you realise how wrong your prediction is . FYI ,Bran is a non character,so no he won’t take Dany’s place,sorry to ruin your hopes and dreams .

      Dany definitely has plot armour until she reaches Westeros but then I feel she’s fair game and unlikely to live until the very end. SHe’s either fighting the White Walkers (seems unlikely as that’s Jon’s role) or she’s an evil invader that needs to be thought off (if so by who?). The chances of her having a happy end are slim to nil.

    100. Tyrion the myrion,

      She will survive till the last season at least but not sure about last episode. She could die and you can find some foreshadowing for that. Bran is a really important person for the endgame or at least I’ve always thought that way.

    101. Geralt of Rivia,

      I agree Bran is very safe in this story, he might end up living in a tree but he’s clearly an end game player. Jon likewise but I suspect he ends up living in exile or being forced to do something he’s not keen on. Dany for me will most likely die or perhaps heading off to Valeryia.

    102. Most traumatic/WTF?

      After being resurrected from the funeral pyre, Jon gets a nasty splinter from the stacked wood, gets an infection, and dies from lack of proper medical treatment.

      AND/OR

      Cersei makes the equivalent of an atom bomb with wildfire and blows the entirety of Kings Landing up, taking out every character currently there, and a newly arrived Jaime. The mushroom cloud can be seen from Meereen by Danny and Co, who decide to just crash at the palace they already have.

    103. Jon Snowed: I agree Bran is very safe in this story, he might end up living in a tree but he’s clearly an end game player.

      I do hope his abilities are being set up for the end game, but I don’t believe he is safe at all. If the WWs don’t have an eye on weirnet central, then they are the dumbest of the dumb gamers. In S6, I believe we will discover what is truly behind the supposed ancient treaty that led to the building and stability of the wall.

    104. Jon Snowed: SHe’s either fighting the White Walkers (seems unlikely as that’s Jon’s role)

      Dany helping with the fight of WW is going to be a necessity – imho I think that it’s one of those cases of showing a problem so big that if the entire world doesn’t coordinate their actions, cast aside what have become petty battles by comparison to the greater problem, and learn to work together, then the entire world is doomed. Every weapon possible will be needed, mentally and physically. Dragon fire will be of tremendous purpose, but Jon will be needed on the ground to coordinate the movements.

      Unless, of course, he will be a dragon-rider as well, coordinating from the air or Bran somehow handles the ground battles through the weirnet

    105. Firannion: I’ve thought all along that the FM and the IB probably work hand in glove. Both being headquartered in Braavos just seems way too convenient to be mere coincidence.

      Yeaah, but I can’t decide who the victim might be. Who would the IB want dead the most? Davos, because they are pissed that he convinced them to back Stannis? Cersei, just because … or maybe she really starts mayhem that will prevent them from collecting. Jaime? Baelish?

      I’m not sure how it works with Faceless Men. Do they need a reason to eliminate someone, or do they just take the order? Are they just assassins or do they need some other motivation before they “service” someone. It wasn’t made clear in the show.

      Arya will need motivation to go back to Westeros. A lot of you had already posted that you thought Arya would be sent back as a FM and I agree it would be a cool, logical way to get Arya back to Westeros.

      She did tell real Jaqen, in an earlier season after he helped her escape Harrenhall, that she needed to find her sister. She didn’t look happy at the notion, but it was shown in her face the realization that she needed to find Sansa became a firm notion in her head. Going back as a FM at least gets her on the same continent.

    106. Tommen will be killed, of course. If not this season, the next. Cersei too. Littlefinger definitely MUST suffer a cruel death, the same goes for Walder “The Murderer” Frey.
      Kevan and Pycelle,

      the same way it happens on ADWD

      should die…
      Theon and Yara may die but not now, I think they’ll have a lot of things to deal with in the Iron Islands this season. Maybe one of them would die near the end of season 6.
      Al last but not least, I really wish a bloody death for the fucking Boltons.

    107. JCDavis: For Arya, I think she is the best of the “Stark” group to be the one to do in Walder Frey…it just seems poetic justice that one of the Stark’s would do it, for the Red Wedding of course. I have no clue what Arya would do after that…but if she doesn’t do this, then what does she do anyway? I think there must be some relevance to her character to have built it up this far through 5 seasons and that isn’t just the undoing of one Walder Frey, but much more.

      Although I think it not unlikely that Arya will take out Walder Frey, I don’t think that will be the culmination of her arc. She needs to move beyond her need for revenge, and I don’t think that killing Walder will give her that catharsis. It will leave her still feeling empty.

      For my money, Arya’s ultimate, “bittersweet” destiny is to give her mother the Gift of the Many-Faced God. It’s no coincidence that the show keeps harping on the importance of “knowing where the heart is.” Laying LSH to rest will be an act of love and mercy, and it will free Arya from the need to kill ever again. She will be able to let go of being a Faceless Woman and go back to being Someone. Then she can either 1) die with a sense of inner peace and acceptance or 2) rebuild her life, reestablishing connections with surviving family and friends: Take your pick.

    108. Would you people just let the writers write? Yes we are off book now so for all practical purposes GoT is just another prime time soap opera with some cool quirks — dragons and white walkers, good acting, great writing and all the money in the world to spend on costumes and sets. That being said, what’s with not letting things spin out as they do in real life — very, very unpredictably. Seriously, maybe its time for us to all “get a life”.

    109. I wanna see Ramsay flaying both Roose and pregnant Fat Walda (if that’s her name) and displaying them for the people of Winterfell to see, he seizes control over Winterfell and the Bolton army completely. And becomes the baddest of the bad, if he wasn’t so already.

      But with that he becomes too powerful and we all know when something is going too well for someone the sooner he’s gonna get it. So I wanna see his army being destroyed by WunWun and the armies of the north, the wildlings and the vale. And will be imprisoned, now if Reek was to follow Sansa all this way, while Sansa, Jon, Littlefinger and the other powerful people are in the court of Winterfell deciding the future of the North and the fate of Ramsay, Theon sneaks into his cell, and Ramsay of course waiting to be freed by his Reek, has all his hopes suddenly shattered as his bones, when Theon Greyjoy smashes him with a hammer, screaming furiously as he does it. As he shatters every rib he has and ending the rein of Ramsay Bolton.

      (But with one victory in the north, the good guys will have a loss in the Riverlands, in the hands of Jaime fucking Lannister, Riverrun falls. And either Blackfish or Edmure Tully will have to be executed.)

      ^ that whole thing is unless, Jaime will be going on a redemption arc, and plans to destroy the Lannister rule. He once killed a King he vowed to protect in order to protect the people of a city, so he would now fight his own family and his own sister, whom he loved, and takes the Lannister army into a trap, where he has communicated with outlaws of Riverlands to attack his own army at night, with destroying the major army of the Lannisters and allying with the outlaws and the Tullys of Riverrun, and reunited with Brienne by season 6, we will see Jaime leading a different army, his enemy’s army back home to King’s landing, to fight Cersei and the rest of the Lannisters.

      With no Lady Stoneheart in the show, I’m sceptical that’s her ultimate arc end as D&D know the arcs for all characters. I’ve been leaning to her being the one to kill Dany or perhaps Cersei.

    111. ohmy my bf was just asking what I was thinking as I’m reading this post.

      So I told him and asked him who he would kill off. He hasnt read the books and still hasn’t seen season 5!

      And he’s like: that blonde bitch…you know…the mother of that cunt joffrey. Sooo Cersei it is

      Well she might live to strangle jaimy for bringin their daughter’corpse back from dorne

      I personally would love to see little finger’s end by the hand of a frantic little robbin arryn

      Ooooorrrr

      either theon or asha(yara)…theon should try to win his kingdom by paying the iron price

    112. JCDavis,

      I see (and HOPE!) Lord Baelish making it until the very end. He started everything and I see him there and kicking when it comes to a close. Martin has a thing for the underdogs. Bastards, cripples, outcasts, etc. Baelish, even though he is a evil genius, would be considered a underdog too. Came from a lowly house and worked his way up in the world. Compare it to the arcs of the other “outcasts” like Jon, Dany, Tyrion, Brienne, etc.
