Valar Morghulis, as the famous Game of Thrones saying goes, all men must die. It has proven true for most characters with “Winds of Winter.”
Season 6 saw not just the death of a few characters; entire houses went extinct either gradually or all at once. Among the casualties were House Bolton, House Martell, and House Tyrell — all left without heirs or living members.
Now that we are currently in a lull between seasons, we look at the characters who are in danger of being added to the hall of faces. With the Second Targaryen War of Conquest on the way, more bodies will pile up bloodied or burned.
According to TV Line, those who are on Arya’s list should check under their beds at night. After she flawlessly took care of Walder Frey and his sons the others should be, easy as pie?
Next are the poor souls in King’s Landing especially those close to Cersei. Not only is she a target for Arya but the loss of all her children has left her somehow apathetic to everyone. Who can say she isn’t close to screaming “Burn them all” and start burning people at random?
Then there are those who well, just remained in the background in “Game of Thrones.” Theon Greyjoy is a prime candidate as after graduating from “Reekhood,” he has been relying on others to make the decisions.
Ser Jorah Mormont is also in danger of exiting the show. He has contracted the incurable grayscale and if he doesn’t find treatment soon, we might need to call him Jorah the Mad Bear.
Finally, there are the members of the Brotherhood without Banners, Sandor Clegane among them. They are a rebel group fighter under no flag, their very lives are in danger from day one, all except Beric that is who can be revived.
Whether these characters bite the dust come “Game of Thrones” season 7 we’ll find out soon enough (or in 10 long months).
Catch what happens when Game of Thrones returns this spring 2017.
