Welcome back to the Death Watch, a ranking of the likelihood of each character to get killed this season in Game of Thrones. As before, there WILL BE SPOILERS FOR ALL PAST EPISODES, and a strict NO FUTURE SPOILERS policy on the comments. Anything referring to the future is purely speculation.

For those of you looking to talk about future spoilers, stay for the read and take your comments over to Joanna's post here.

This entire episode felt very ominous, with something bad seeming to lurk around the corner for every storyline. Many plots were revealed that will likely shape the second half of the season. Particularly interesting to me is how things play out with Tywin, Cersei, and Tyrion. The fall out from that will likely impact many story lines across the realm.

Rating System:
1 = Safe
10 = Imminent Death

Biggest Movers from Last Week:
Hound: Down 5
Catelyn: Up 4
Loras: Up 3

Baric Dondarrion: 2. I guess you could say he already got killed, but for him to stay dead, Thoros will have to go first.
Tormund Giantsbane: 2.

Arya Stark: 1. I actually think they are going to get Arya back to what's left of her family, but something will drive her to leave again (maybe off to Braavos?).
Gendry: 7
Hound: 4. He's safe for now, but I don't have a clue when or where we will see him again.
Thoros of Myr: 4
Hot Pie: 2
Nymeria: ?

Jaime Lannister: 3. The more time they spend developing Jaime, the safer I think he is. However, there's no storyline that I feel more clueless about than this one.
Brienne: 6

Cersei Lannister: 3. She's not in any extra danger after this week, but anyone that comes in contact with her is.
Joffrey Baratheon: 3
Loras Tyrell: 7. Cersei is clearly going to try to figure out a way to not marry Loras. There's one easy way to prevent it.
Margaery Tyrell: 2
Lady Olenna: 2. She's become one of my favorite characters. I sure hope she's around for a while.
Tywin Lannister: 6
Tyrion Lannister: 1
Petyr Balish: 6
Sansa Stark: 6. Poor Sansa.

Daenerys Targaryen: 1
Jorah Mormont: 7. Can someone tell me how he betrayed Daenerys? It's clearly important, but I think I totally missed what he did. Regardless, its mention can only mean bad things for Jorah.
Barristan Selmy: 3
Drogon, Rhaegal, Viserion (Dragons): no more than 2 for any of them.

Robb Stark: 6. I can't tell if he plans to take the Frey's by force or convince them to rejoin him, but either way, he's going to be met with a lot of resistance.
Catelyn Stark: 7. If I had to guess who takes the blame for their agreement with the Freys being broken, it's Catelyn. Couple that with her already betraying the war effort and the Freys could demand her life.
Talisa Maegyr (Stark?): 5. Okay, so I'm hedging my bets a little here.
Grey Wind: 3

Jon Snow: 1
Ghost: 4
Ygritte: 2
Mance Rayder: 2

Stannis Baratheon: 3
Davos Seaworth: 3. They keep investing time to show up how great of a guy Davos is. He'll get freed at some point.
Melisandre: 7

Not Pictured This Week:
Samwell Tarly: 2

Theon Greyjoy: 3

Bran Stark: 1
Rickon Stark: 1
Osha: 1
Hodor: 1
Summer: 1
Shaggy Dog: 1
Jojen Reed: 1
Meera Reed: 1

Shae: 8. She hasn't been on much, but I still think Tywin will find out about her and get rid of her.
Bronn: 3
Podrick: 5
Varys: 2
Maester Pycelle: 3
Lancel Lannister: 2
Tommen Baratheon: 1
Myrcella Baratheon: 1
