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.

With only four episodes left (ONLY FOUR? WTF.), everything is set up for what hopefully will be an explosive finish to the season. There's always tension in King's Landing. Brienne's is facing treason. Robb will soon be going back to war along side the Freys. Gendry has been taken for sacrifice and Arya will be desperate. And at the wall, well, ummm...

Anyway, nobody new is in serious danger this week, only those that we already thought were. After Melisandre picking up Gendry, I'm starting to feel a little cocky about my picks. Then again, as the book readers have been eager to point out, I'm sure reality will set in soon.


Rating System:
1 = Safe
10 = Imminent Death

Biggest Movers from Last Week:
Melisandre: -5

New:
Psychopath Torturing Theon: 3. I hope he and Joffrey meet so they can be BFFs.
Roose Bolton: 5. If it came down to it, Jaime would kill him to save Brienne.

Old:
Arya Stark: 1. Now we know she's going to kill at least 3 people. Clearly she's safe until that happens.
Gendry: 7. Gendry is supposed to be sacrificed to the Lord of Light, and he's seemingly screwed. I'm just not convinced yet that he's actually going to get killed.
Hound: 4
Thoros of Myr: 4
Baric Dondarrion: 2. The Lord of Light must have some greater purpose for Baric to have brought him back so many times.
Hot Pie: 2
Nymeria: ?
Melisandre: 2. She said she will meet Arya again, and I believe her. Not this season though.

Jaime Lannister: 3
Brienne: 5. Nobody wants to kill Jaime, and Jaime will fight to protect Brienne if he can.

Cersei Lannister: 3
Joffrey Baratheon: 3
Loras Tyrell: 7
Margaery Tyrell: 2
Lady Olenna: 2
Tywin Lannister: 6. He's given just about everyone in King's Landing a reason to want him dead. There's still a good chance someone acts on it.
Tyrion Lannister: 1. He's going to have to do something about Joffrey.
Varys: 2
Shae: 8
Petyr Balish: 3. I don't think Varys will kill him, and nobody else realizes that they should.
Sansa Stark: 6

Robb Stark: 4. I really thought the Freys would want more than that. He got off pretty easy.
Catelyn Stark: 5
Talisa Maegyr (Stark?): 4
Grey Wind: 3

Jon Snow: 1. What happened to all those white walkers? Doesn't somebody have to run into them at some point? I still don't think there's any chance Jon gets killed, but he's the most likely to run into the white walkers, then I don't know what.
Ghost: 4. I miss the direwolves.
Ygritte: 2
Mance Rayder: 2
Tormund Giantsbane: 2.

Stannis Baratheon: 3
Davos Seaworth: 3

Samwell Tarly: 1. He's probably not going to run into anyone soon.

Theon Greyjoy: 2. I definitely don't think he'll get killed, but I wonder if he'll still be getting tortured at the end of the season. I say yes.

Bran Stark: 1. Yawn. That goes for this whole group.
Rickon Stark: 1
Osha: 1
Hodor: 1
Summer: 1
Shaggy Dog: 1
Jojen Reed: 1
Meera Reed: 1

Not Pictured This Week:
Bronn: 3
Podrick: 5
Maester Pycelle: 3
Lancel Lannister: 2
Tommen Baratheon: 1
Myrcella Baratheon: 1

Daenerys Targaryen: 1
Jorah Mormont: 7
Barristan Selmy: 3
Drogon, Rhaegal, Viserion (Dragons): no more than 2 for any of them.

    Nah, Joffrey and Robb are totally goners, probably in the next episode or two. I'd put them both at 9s. And I think Gendry is safe, I think his story with Arya is far from over.
    Also, Sansa is safe, she totally going to run off with Littlefinger. Did you see how she was staring at his boat at the end of the last episode?
    (Not spoilers, just speculation, I have only read the first book.)

  • yocean

    Ohhhh, You know nothing...

  • Three_nineteen

    These posts get funnier every week.

  • Ygritte should be around a 9. There's no more certain doom in the Song of Ice and Fire than being a happy minor character.

  • Gaius

    So, the slimy showing of Lothar and Black Walder in their scene with Robb pretty much solidifies my opinion that the Freys are the McPoyles of Westeros...

  • John G.

    speaking of spoilers. This girl is gonna save us all from spoilers, well at least when they occur on Twitter.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    clever girl.

  • The 'four episodes left' thing just hit me and it made my heart shrink and my eyes well up with tears. It's gonna be gone for SO LONG. *sob*

  • Fredo

    That sound you heard was all the book readers grimacing.

    Feels like every first half of a season is moving the pieces into place for another round of mayhem and destruction.

  • sean

    For those of us who actually read the books...it is killing us not to reveal what is going to happen. I have been saying for months the internet is going to melt down on the evening of June 2. People's heads are going to explode.

  • Jennifer Schmennifer

    I think those are pretty low numbers for all those people who climbed the wall. I know Jon told them which areas didn't have crows watching, but still. They're clearly on a mission, and it doesn't seem like a safe one.

  • TheEmpress

    Not to mention, anyone who is happy is undoubtedly in danger. How can Ygritte be a 2?

  • JenVegas

    WTF 4 EPISODES??? The season is ending the weekend I'm moving and wont have CABLE????! WHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. godamnitalltohell.

  • Gerb

    maybe not... I think they are skipping a week for Memorial day.

  • Sherry

    No!!! This is all I have to look forward to...no skipped weeks!

  • MikeRoorda

    You can come over to my place and watch with my wife and I, but you have to bring mead and supply your own trencher.

    (Trenchers are basically just bread bowls made from a whole loaf of bread right? Then filled with, like, aurochs stew or something? God I'm hungry.)

  • Joe

    It's "Beric", not "Baric".

    How did Podrick get a 5? Who would want to kill Podrick?

  • JenVegas

    clearly not any of the prostitutes, that's for sure.

  • Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

    You crack me up. :-)
