Game of Thrones - Which Characters will be left Alive at the very end ?

I figure since we are in a bit of a lull in TV land at the moment, we can have some extra discussions

By the end of the very last episode, which characters do you think will be alive and which ones dead ?

My thoughts

ALIVE AT THE END
Arya
Danys
Jaime
Sansa
Littlefinger
Bran
Brienne
Sam
Gilly
Lady mormont
Yara

DEAD BY THE END
Cersi
Jon
Greyworm
Tyrion
Jorah mormont
Hound
Theon
Ellaria
Varys
Tormund
Bronn
Mountain
Mother Tyrell
Euron

Alive:

Jon
Dani
Arya
Tyrion
Sam
Bran
Sansa

Defintely dead:

Cersei

Likely dead:

Littlefinger
Euron
Night's King


I think a lot of the characters could go either way, but I suspect that the remaining thirteen episodes probably won't have the massive body count everyone is anticipating. A lot of characters like Theon, Davos, Tormund, and Jorah could go either way, but I think most of the 'borderline' characters will make it to the end.

As far as Littlefinger goes, does "When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die, there is no middle ground" apply to him? He's been playing the longest, most intricate game so far. Unless he ends up either on the Iron Throne, or the power behind it, will he survive?

Re: Game of Thrones - Which Characters will be left Alive at the very end ?

STILL ALIVE
All the remaining Starks
Jon Snow as king
Dany as queen
Tyrion as hand of the king/queen
Brienne
Sam
Davos

Can't keep track of all names but all bad guys will die. Can't leave unresolved threats or ending is open with no resolution.

Jaime and The Hound will have redeemable deaths. Started as villains but will go out as heroes ala Darth Vader.

The guy was hooked up with Tyrion and is now with Jaime will survive.

Anybody else. ??????

I would actually like it more if they left some bad guys still alive or threats still out there. As if to say that the Game of Thrones is still and always being played. I honestly hope littlefinger stays alive. The cockroach of Westeros!

Re: Game of Thrones - Which Characters will be left Alive at the very end ?

Alive, these are rather obvious:
-Jon
-Tyrion
-Sam
-Davos
-Yara

Dead, most are obvious, except the dragons but I figure they need to go to usher in a new era of dragon-free reign since they are not needed with the removal of Night's King:
-Cersei
-Euron
-Greyworm
-One, or all of the dragons
-Night's King
-Jorah

Maybe, I figure some will not make it, but can't decide:
-Arya
-Brienne
-Jamie
-Varys
-Sansa
-Littlefinger
-Bran
-Theon

I believe Martin is on record saying that his wife threatened to divorce him if he ever kills off Arya.

Now that Cersei is on the Iron Throne, I think she'll be the first one killed off in the last season. Not sure about the others though. Maybe Tyrion, Jon Snow, Dany, Arya, Sansa, Bran. Everyone else will be dead as Jon Snow the first time he died.

I fell certain that Jamie and Cersei will die at the same time, possibly in a murder/suicide.

All the more reason for him to kill her

There are some characters/actors whose popularity gives them immunity for the run home but they could be taken out in the last 1 or 2 episodes

By then it will be too late for all of the "i won't continuing watching if they kill xxxxxx" people

Re: Game of Thrones - Which Characters will be left Alive at the very end ?

I've actually been wondering whether another Stark will die before we're all done. I feel like either Sansa or Arya won't make it.

If one of them went down, it would seem on the surface like Arya would be the best bet. She seems like she's lost a lot of her humanity at this point and she's got some serious serial killer vibes going on with the special pie she baked.

However, I think Sansa might be the one to go if I had to choose, although they would need to make her death mean something pretty important or the Feminists bloggers will have a field day with the show. My reasoning is that Bran is now the three-eyed raven, Jon Snow has the Lord of Light on his side plus Ghost and Arya has the many-faced God on her side. Sansa has nothing on her side at this point except for Littlefinger, which isn't a good thing.

I'm leaning to all the remaining Starks surviving at this point though.

If people freaked out about the Red Wedding, can you imagine what would happen if Tyrion got killed?

Part of me wants the ultimate George RR Martin troll move, by killing everyone and the last shot of the show is the Night King taking a seat on the Iron Throne.

Re: Game of Thrones - Which Characters will be left Alive at the very end ?

My guesses:

Alive:
Jon
Dany
Tyrion
Sansa
Varys
Bran
Sam
Yara
The Hound
Jorah
Brienne
Grey Worm
Olenna
Bronn
Melisandre (hey, somebody on the dark side has to survive)

Dead:
Cersei (no way she lives)
Jaime (I agree with the murder/suicide ending for the Lannister twins)
Arya (she's gone too far down the dark path and will pay for it with her life, but will go out in a blaze of glory)
Theon (some noble sacrifice)
Euron (death by dragon)
Davos (Jon's gotta lose something)
The Mountain (really dead this time)
Littlefinger (the only major character to not suffer some sort of loss so far in six seasons, so he'll die)
Qyburn (playing with wildfire)
Missandei (now that Dany's in Westeros, she'll have little need for a translator, and she'll need to suffer some sort of loss)
Ellaria and The Sand Snakes (casualties of war)
Tormund (Jon's gotta lose something #2)

Re: Game of Thrones - Which Characters will be left Alive at the very end ?

I've never seen the show but from what little imagery and what clips I've seen, I think the following characters will make it out alive:

1. The Blonde Dragon Woman
2. The Brunette Teenage Girl
3. The Kid Who Gets Carried Around
4. The Peter Dinklage
5. Jon Snow
6. Captain Phasma

Going to Die:
1. The One Who Looks Like Nathan Fillion or Nate Drake
2. The Young Gary Oldman with a Mustache
3. The Guy Who Looks Like the Beard Guy from Deadwood / Sheriff Shelby from Justified
4. Jon Snow's Best Friends Unless Noted Above
5. All the Snow Giants
6. Is That Guy Who Laughed During the Red Wedding That Looks Like the Janitor at Hogwarts dead, yet? 'Cause he's a goner.

I assume anyone else I've seen pictures or videos of is already dead. Enjoy the show, everyone!

As rare as Valyrian steel is, I doubt they would waste it on the Iron Throne.

On this track, there is a theory that the White Walkers will win in the end, and that GRRM is making some sort of statement about people squabbling over money and political power while ignoring a looming threat.

Though I am not convinced that that would make a satisfying ending for a series that ran over seven long books published across thirty-plus years.

Jon is the PTWP, so he wins.

IF Dany is no longer capable of bearing children, then she is done. Can't establish a dynasty without children.

Cersei is the villain next season, so she's done for.

Jaime must die for Bran and to enable Tyrion to lead house Lannister.

Not sure, other than Bran, if any of the other Starks matter.

Everybody else is a supporting character so they can die or live.

Dragons all die.

I think Dany could very well die - probably as a hero of some sort. And if they can somehow figure out that Jon is actually targaryen and not a Stark, he could marry Sansa and have kids that would be rightful heirs.

So the show's pretty much guaranteed to end with some form of incest then? Alrighty!

Alive and on the Iron Throne: Undead Hodor

Who behaves exactly like the alive Hodor did.
