When you play the game of thrones you win or you die, but let's be honest — you're probably gonna die. Game of Thrones has been a remarkably unsentimental show ever since its first season, when Eddard Stark was beheaded. To date, there have been at least 97 major character deaths over the past seven seasons, ranging from the massacre at the Red Wedding to the death (and reanimation) of Jon Snow to the Night King slaying the dragon Viserion last season.

In the final season, one thing is for sure: A lot of characters are going to die. Maybe all of them! Here are my best guesses for who'll be meeting the Many-Faced God before the season is over.
