We’re fast approaching the eighth and final season of 'Game of Thrones', and we’ve seen so many deaths over the years that it puts lemmings to shame. We've seen the Starks, the Lannisters and even little babies not being spared from the killing spree of series creator, George RR Martin. Even though we've seen a little too many deaths in the show, we're still left with nearly 30 key characters on the show, which still leaves room for more, you guessed it, deaths!
Keeping in mind the character's story and history, we've compiled a small list of characters who we think may not make it in the series finale.
Theon Greyjoy: Throughout the series, Theon’s main struggle has been his fear of inadequacy, and his constant need to prove himself has led to bad choices and years of pain (with losing his genitals and all). We feel that this is the season that Theon will finally prove himself, I mean, it's about time that he shed that "Reek" title that Ramsay Bolton so unceremoniously gave him. We feel that in an effort to find his sister Yara Greyjoy, along with reuniting the Iron Islands, Theon may just lose his life in the pursuit of something nobler, thereby removing Theon's reputation as a coward and backstabber, and establishing him as a hero.
Brienne of Tarth: Brienne of Tarth has proved herself time and again as one of the bravest warriors in the series. It is this bravery that we think might just get her killed in battle. She's not one to shy away from a fight, and she's continuously put herself in danger in order to protect the Baratheons, the Starks, and now, the Lannisters. We believe that she will give her life to save Jaime Lannister or Sansa from the undead army, and become a White Walker in the process.
Arya Stark: Arya's main goal in life was to be an assassin, and take revenge on the people who've killed those who were close to her. Although she's ticked off many names on her kill list, the White Walkers are not something she's planned or trained for, and her use of Needle (her slender sword), is not going to help in a battle against the undead, who can only be killed by Valyrian steel or dragon glass.
Arya's highly dependent on Needle in trying situations, and we believe this may be her downfall because she may not be able to wield the larger swords proficiently, therefore turning her into a White Walker, and maybe, just maybe face her brother Jon Snow in a battle of the siblings.
Cersei Lannister: This death is definitely going to happen, I mean, it's all part of the prophecy which was told to Cersei when she was a child. Not only does she have it coming, but like most deaths that happen to 'GOT' antagonists, hers will definitely be brutal. We feel that Arya will tick another name off her kill list, and it would be awesome if Cersei gets killed last (with reference to the list), and maybe even at the hands of a White Walker Arya. Now that would be perfect.
Bronn: Bronn has become a fan favorite of the show. With his clever retorts and his impeccable fighting style, Bronn won all our hearts. Granted, he's a conniving, money-grubbing, whore-mongering, sword for hire, who's a little insensitive towards the little people like Tyrion Lannister, but there's something innately charming about his character. Too bad that he may just up and die by the hands of Cersei Lannister, whom he's double-crossed multiple times without her knowledge. We believe that all his cheating ways may just catch up to him in the season finale, and he will suffer the wrath of Cersei, which is a fate worse than becoming a White Walker.
The season finale will premiere on 14 April, only on HBO.
