The final season of what has been and what is still going to be the most watched show in this planet hits us soon and speculations and predictions have been strife like rumours in the marketplace. Excitement levels have never been higher as fans gear up to watch their favourite (surviving) characters take a go at it, one last time in the battle that will seal the fate of Westeros once and for all. However, with that rejoice, fans also a harbour an inbound fear about their favourite characters not making it into the new world order that is to arise after the war that wages through Westeros.
As is the rather deserved infamy of the show for killing off beloved characters. This season is going to be particularly interesting, since in Season 7, there were a lot of fan pleasing moments. You could expect that balance to tip in any direction from hereon: given this is the final season, and there were some valid complaints regarding the same that the writers intend to take seriously. That brings us to the subject matter of this article. Accept it or not, a lot of characters, sides, bad guys and mains are going to kick the bucket this season: the only thing that remains to be seen is how, and which ones are all but sure to go. On that note, let’s begin with our predictions of the fifteen characters most likely to die in the final season of Game of Thrones.
20. Night King
No brainer. That was kind of the point of it all. Wasn’t it? While it is almost certain that the genocidal icy beast dies, it remains to be seen at whose hands. That is going to be one heroic figure, the one to drive his or her blade through the icy bastard’s heart. Kicking off the list with this one despite and because of the fair obviousness.
19. Yohn Royce
Yeah, I see a lot of you scratching your heads over this one. A head of one of many of the houses in ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, Yohn Royce is a bannerman for both houses Stark and Arryn. Contrary to what you’d imagine, he has made quite a few appearances over the seasons, the latest one being at Little Finger’s execution, when all of the Northern houses have already sworn fealty to Jon. As a loyal comrade, I expect him to be along the frontlines and fall prey to the battle. Also because, well it’s a battle and there have to be some casualties on either side, winning or not. You would agree that his character seems pretty dispensable.
