The first episode of Game of Thrones season 8 came and went without any main characters dying. There was still a little bloodshed, but it was inconsequential to the narrative.
I remember exiting the space for an instant on Sunday, retreating to the kitchen to grab some popcorn and water, per my wife’s request.
She asked me when I wanted her to pause it, and I said,»Nah, what could happen in 15 seconds?»
As I round the corner into the kitchen, she cried,»Someone expired» Of course.
Per her,»They did not matter.» She wasn’t wrong, and then I managed to sit and enjoy the rest of the incident, it was apparent nobody could be meeting their bitter end before incident two.
But that can’t possibly endure for long. This can be Game of Thrones, after all, and just five episodes stay.
Now, I’m not demanding that every character dies — or even the majority of these — but I also don’t know if I buy a lot of them lasting through a battle with The Night King and whatever lies ahead with Queen Cersei.
The point here is no one left Westeros in a body bag in episode one, but that’s going to change in a hurry. And though the chance of corpses piling up in the Seven Kingdoms increases with every passing episode, episode one did lay some groundwork for a few prospective deaths.
Whether by foreshadowing or not, here are all the characters that I think are for certain perishing before season 8 is over.
Varys and Melisandre
This is old information, but hey, why not start with two people the show has teased will probably die before the show is over? Melisandre has been assured by Sir Davos that he would kill her if he saw her again, and I am certain others have reason to wish her ill will.
But she told Varys she had to return to Westeros to see things through. She said she needed to die there just like him. Her capacity to be prophetic clearly struck a chord with Varys in the moment, and possibly it’s just me, but he’s seemed extra down ever since.
The clock is ticking on virtually everybody, but let us face it — Varys is highly opinionated and has spoken against rulers in the past. In addition, he has no true ability to defend himself, so that he puts himself in trouble, that’s that.
These are smaller characters which may help ease the story. They are spared, but there’s reason enough to have either/both killed off.
Theon and Euron Greyjoy
