Game of Thrones Season 6 has already had a high body count. So far, its major casualties have included Doran Martell and the entire Dorne plot line, the three-eyed Raven, Hodor, The Blackfish, and Ramsay Bolton. And that’s not even mentioning the Meereenese citizens who died when Daenerys decided to wait and joyride for a few hours before siccing her dragons on the Masters, or over half of Jon’s army, who died because Sansa was out-conniving even Littlefinger. But because this is Game of Thrones, the finale will doubtlessly bring more big deaths. Here are the most likely candidates.
Sure, Daenerys commanded Jorah to find a cure to Greyscale, but that’s easier said than done. Jorah has been a dead man walking ever since he caught Greyscale in Season 5, and he’s unlikely to survive “The Winds of Winter.”
Davos is perhaps the most decent man in Westeros. He’s honorable, brave, kind, stands up for what he believes in, and is the best pep-talker of little girls. If he lived in the modern world, he’d definitely be gifted a mug that says “#1 Dad” on it several times a year. It’s frankly shocking he’s survived this many seasons in, and as he clearly intends to confront Melisandre about Shireen’s death, his time is running out. He will not come out on top of that particular fight.
Cersei is going [to use the Mad King’s stores of Wildfire to light up King’s Landing and turn all her enemies joy to ashes in their mouths. She’s at a point where she gives zero fucks, she accepts Tommen’s death because he’s already gone to her, and she just wants to watch the world burn. The whole season has been dropping hints left and right, and there’s no way she’ll emerge from the ashes alive.
4. The Mountain
If Cersei goes, so does her most loyal head-smashing guard dog. As an added twist, Arya will likely be the one to do him in, as he’s still on her kill list and A Girl will go back to Westeros. Sophie Turner’s comments during the cast’s game of “two truths and a lie” all but guarantee that Arya will kill The Mountain.
5. Petyr Baelish
This one would be the shocking death, as everybody expects Littlefinger to be the last one standing. But he’s underestimated Sansa one time too many, and she’s beating him at his own game. The Season 6 finale preview looks like he intends to ask for her hand in the Godswood — there’s no way Sansa would stand for yet another questionable marriage. To get out of it, she’ll kill him.
The Season 6 finale airs on Sunday June 25.
