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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Can we safely stop calling Joffrey 'Baratheon' from now on? Are we too fucking polite for that? The kid's a Lannister bastard, plain and simple.

  • Spoon

    I've read the third book so I know what's going to happen, but even I am
    getting tired of having to read these "omg you guys, you're SO
    wrong and you're going to be SO surprised because shit is TOTALLY gonna go
    down" comments every. single. week. Just let people enjoy the show without feeling the need to make these ominous remarks.

  • sean

    Not to spoil anything, but is fun to see your picks every week. How right you are on some things, and how very wrong. Your head is about to explode when certain things happen. In fact, the whole internet is going to melt down in a few weeks. That is going to be such fun to watch.

  • elenaran

    I think you've got Ygritte way too low now. If there's anything we've learned from this show it's that no one's allowed to be happy. She and Jon Snow ended this week's episode in complete bliss, so to me, that means she's going to die (violently and in front of Jon).

  • PDamian

    I don't think Sansa is in quite as much danger as that. As far as the Lannisters are concerned, her little brothers are dead at Theon's hands, Robb Stark will fall sooner or later -- to one of the Lannisters' allies if not at some Lannister's hand -- and Arya is lost for all intents and purposes. As Tywin said in the last ep, Sansa is the key to the north, so her life must be preserved until her marriage and the getting of an heir can secure the north, which gives everyone from Tywin to Baelish a good reason to preserve her life. Of course, no-one thinks she has to be kept happy while it's being preserved.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Though the Lannisters will soon be seeking revenge for some murdered kin...

  • Monica

    Tywin isn't that impetuous though. If the Lannisters killed Sansa Stark, a poor innocent girl, that would just rile up the north more. Wouldn't more families come to the aid of Robb than not? Who wants to be associated with girl killers? Look at what Robert did just for someone taking Lyanna.

  • Talisa Maegyr (Stark?)

    Thank you for the question mark. Am I the only one who missed any sort of
    announcement that they were married? It seemed to me that we just jumped into
    season 3 with the deed already done.

  • DarthCorleone

    They were married in the final episode of season two. They traded the vows of the Seven.

  • BWeaves

    I just finished watching season 2 on DVD, and I could swear I watched their marriage ceremony.

  • As a book reader, I love these posts. A lot of these values are pretty good.

    It's gonna be great five years from now when Martin still hasn't released the sixth book and the series will be new territory for everyone (I keed, kinda).

  • jim kizer

    This first part of your post could be considered out of line. I know I wouldn't want to know if I was close or not.

  • Frank

    He didn't say close. He said good. They are all good, and you'll find out how close they were at some point (if George stops goofing off).

  • Finkle is Einhorn.

  • TheEmpress

    Um, spoiler alert please?! ;)

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh for pete's sake - that's a pretty vague statement.

  • Fredo

    Jorah was acting as a spy for Varys early on in Season 1. It was his reports that led to the assassination attempt on Dany - the wine merchant in the market. Jorah repented but Dany don't know.

  • Manolantern

    In season 1 Jorah was feeding information to Varys and the small council about Dany in order to get a pardon from the king. His scene with Selmy this week was to see just how much Selmy knew about this (presumably not much as he revealed Robert didn't allow him on the council).

  • "Can someone tell me how he betrayed Daenerys? "

    Back in the first season he was spying on her for Robert, in exchange for a pardon. You see him have a change of heart, save Dany from poisoned wine.

  • John W

    He also went around telling everyone that the carpet doesn't match the drapes after she survived the funeral pyre. Totally uncool dude.
