All men must die on Game of Thrones, and the odds for Season 7 are in. Betting platform Boylesports has released their Season 7 stats that predict which characters will say “today” to the God of Death first. Most are expected — tertiary people who have it coming, like Petyr Baelish, Ellaria Sand, Euron Greyjoy, and Melisandre — but it gets really interesting when you look at the major players, because Arya Stark ranks highest.
Technically speaking, Cersei Lannister is the main character who ranks highest, with an 8/1 chance of dying first. But because she’s on the Iron Throne — a place with a high mortality rate — that’s expected. Arya, on the other hand, has a 10/1 chance of dying first, which is higher than Jaime and Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow, or Daenerys Targaryen. The later two both have a comical 100/1 odd of dying first.
It has long been rumored that Arya is George R. R. Martin’s wife’s favorite character, while Tyrion is said to be Martin’s. Because of this, the two have been assumed to have the most plot armor. If either died, that would be a shocker.
To be fair, the odds of 10/1 are still not in favor of A Girl dying. But if she does, let’s hope Game of Thrones reunites her with Nymeria first.
Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres July 16 on HBO.
