Guesswork is the order of the day.

1. Arya Stark Β© HBO

Before you throw things at me, give me time to explain.

In the trailers it looks like there is a VERY high probability that the two remaining Starks that missing in action are - Bran and Arya - finally coming back to Winterfell and to be honest we already have a few tears in our eyes just thinking about them.

The problem is, as Isaac Newton (Bran Stark) almost said, "Every act is followed by a counter-act that tears your heart out through your eyes until you can no longer understand the concept of hope." In other words, good things do not go unpunished.

Safe from death, Jon wears armor made of Valyrian steel and Bran must continue his role as Lord of the Exposure. So if they want to hurt us with a long overdue Stark death (Rickon doesn't count; it was his own stupid mistake to walk in a straight line) then we're left with Sansa or Arya. I'm betting on the Assassin rather than the one who will likely stay in Winterfell for the entire season.

Probability: 3/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: To be honest, I think this season would be a little early for Arya's death, but if it happens ... to be killed by an ally while impersonating someone else would be appropriately bad.

2. Littlefinger Β© HBO

That's better, isn't it?

The shit in Westeros has been really going on since he convinced Lysa to murder Jon Arryn Vaping. Wars have raged, kings have come and gone, the continent is torn apart, and all this is largely Littlefinger's fault. What an ass.

How he has escaped his just punishment so far is completely unclear - but Bran's return to Winterfell could be the turning point. Ned Stark's only remaining son appears to have access to thanks to the Worldwide Weirwood Web any Information. Once the remaining Starks find out that Petyr was responsible for the deaths of their parents and siblings, it won't be long before Arya put him on their list.

Valar Morghulis

Probability: 7/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: Arya cuts Baelish's throat - Frey-style - with his own Valyrian dagger - the dagger that caused so much trouble back in Season 1 after he told Catelyn it belonged to Tyrion.

3. Tormund Giantsbane Β© HBO

To be perfectly honest, I predicted Tormund was going to die before season 6, so I know for sure what I'm talking about.

Unfortunately for the fans of Tormund, things are looking a lot darker for our red-haired wildling friend this time around. The trailers show Tormund returning to the wall and fighting there with Jon Snow, Beric Dondarrion, the Hound and a few other Wights and White Walkers.

With only two short seasons to come, the cast has to get smaller and we know from "Hardhome" how deadly an undead attack can be. He could survive, but wouldn't it be typical of Tormund to sacrifice himself to save Jon?

Probability: 6/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: Attacked by Wights while saving Jon Snow from certain death. But don't worry, his final thoughts will be for Brienne, so he will die with a smile on his face.

4. Beric Dondarrion Β© HBO

When it comes to predicting the next death, you would rightly object that Mr. Immortal is more of a surprising choice. But let me explain.

By the time he briefly reappeared in Season 6, Beric (along with Thoros and the rest of the Brotherhood Without Banners) had apparently been forgotten, which is why it will no doubt be super exciting to see her roam around with the big guys like Jon and the Hound.

Still, with the best will in the world, it is inconceivable that Beric will be one of the last survivors - regardless of whether he has a blatant flaming sword or not. He's likely going to help characters like Jon achieve their goals, but with so little time left on screen, supporting roles in Westeros are a dangerous game.

Probability: 8/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: Either he is mauled by Wights (so resuscitation should prove difficult) or he sacrifices his own resuscitation chances to bring Jon back, or something like that.

5. The Mountain Β© HBO

The first thing we notice in the trailer is how snappy The Mountain looks in its new "Darth Vader" costume. Definitely the best-looking two-meter zombie in the Seven Kingdoms.

But there is a MUCH more interesting scene in the second trailer that caused more than a little stir. Β© HBO

No matter how hard the showrunners tried not to reveal this character's face, his figure, height and hair make me 95 percent certain that this is Sandor "The Hound" Clegane. If you think it's Jorah, Daario, or anyone else, feel free to do so - but you're also completely wrong. The can only be the bloodhound.

But the scene obviously takes place in the south - the sun is shining, the ground is clear of snow, he's not wearing a sweater - so how is that possible? My undoubtedly wrong theory is that after their excursion north of the wall, he, Jon, and all of the other survivors head south again to either help Dany with her plan or just to get some color on their face.

And here Sandor will meet his (in several ways) big brother. Yep. Let yourself be carried away by the hype. CLEGANEBOWL is coming. And I predict a point win for the Hound.

Probability: 5/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: In battle he is defeated by his little brother, because a victory for Mountain would be too obvious.

6. Cersei Lannister Β© HBO

Despite losing her husband, father and all three children - frivolously, it could be said - Cersei managed to sit on the Iron Throne by the end of Season 6. The woman is tough, you have to give her that.

But as she herself says: Enemies are approaching from all directions and not even a whole army of revived Mountains could protect them in the long term. Few people think it possible that she will hold her throne (or head) until the end. So it is only a matter of time before she receives the long overdue receipt.

The trailer suggests that Jaime stands by his sister at least at the beginning of the season, but it doesn't take more than a mass murder or two before she loses his support. And how far do you think he has to go to stop them ...?

Probability: 2/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: It is to be expected that she will stick around until season 8, where she made it so far - with the death of Ramsay, the bad guys will be close - but if she dies, the act must be committed by Jaime. Jaime Lannister: The King AND Queen Slayer.

7. Ellaria sand Β© HBO

When Dany sails to Westeros in the final scene of season 6 with the Tyrells, Martells, Greyjoys, a little Lannister, the Unsullied and a horde of Dothraki, she looks like she's leveling everything that gets in her way. The problem is that we know all too well this series No way is so easy to knit.

Some followers - most likely many followers - of their blatant invading army are unlikely to survive. Tyrion is likely safe, and Olenna Tyrell is too old to get too close to the hazard. Ellaria Sand, on the other hand, would be exactly the figure that the authors could sacrifice.

She always likes to get involved in conflicts and has a mouth that could offend some people, but even more ... the whole Dorne story was an absolute disaster from the beginning and the sooner it is forgotten, the better.

Probability: 8/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: She falls in the battle we can see in the trailer, where it looks like Euron's fleet is attacking Danys. Or through the hands of angry fans who have had enough of their shit.

8. Yara Greyjoy Β© HBO

Yara's first meeting with Daenerys was surprisingly one of the most enjoyable moments of all of season 6. There were stronger sparks between these two daughters of miserable fathers than the Mother of Dragons ever could ignite with Daario.

But if that was the moment the audience fell miserably in love with Yara, then this could have been the moment her fate was sealed. As already said, becomes Dany lose followers. Some things will not Come as she hopes, and with two Greyjoys still standing next to her, chances are at least one of these won't survive.

Even if Yara could prove her greatness, nothing compares to Theon's bow. To see him die in battle before he had a tense reunion with his former surrogate brother Jon Snow would really be a missed opportunity. Β© HBO

In these trailer shots, Yara appears to be jumping through the air while her fleet is attacked by the Eurons before a huge number of Greyjoy ships leisurely approach the port of King's Landing.

If this were Yara's fleet, could one safely expect some kind of counterattack from the Lannisters? The fact that the ships are calmly approaching the capital can be interpreted to mean that this is Euron looking for a deal with Cersei, which suggests its previous victory.

Good luck, Yara.

Probability: 9/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: Killed by her uncle while attacking her fleet.

9. Eddison Tollett Β© HBO

Although he never actually played a leading role, Edd has been present since season 2. And thanks to an unexpected sequence of events, it now occupies a prominent position. A bit like Trump, but somehow not like Trump at all.

The new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch doesn't appear in any of the trailers we've seen so far, but it does gives a scene with Bran and Meera as they arrive at the wall, which is why we will get to see Edd's kind-hearted face at least briefly.

The problem is that winter has arrived as predicted and usually brings death. Castle Black is the first line of defense against the White Walkers and due to the large number of losses it will not be able to withstand a mass onslaught from the north.

Probability: 9/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: It is very likely that the final events of Season 7 will include the fall of the Berlin Wall. If so, the Night's Watch won't stand a chance.

10. Melisandre

The last time we saw the hottest secretly millennial (roughly) woman in Westeros, she was banished from Winterfell by Jon Snow for the murder of Princess Sharin.

However, the trailer suggests that Melisandre and Jon will both show up at Dragonstone to pay a visit to Dany and his entourage. The would-be queen did a number of crooked things at the time, but I'm almost certain that "child murder" is on her list of things one hundred percent impossible to do.

When Jon tells Dany what Mel did, her track record suggests that her verdict will be commensurate with the crime. And if Dany ignores this and leaves her alive, I'll be transferred to the White Walker team.

Probability: 6/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: Sentenced to death by Daenerys. Also, after Jon's successful resuscitation, it remains questionable what use will be left for her.

11. Gray worm Β© HBO

He may not have balls, but Gray Worm seems to have a BIG ... part in the plot for the coming season. Here we see him in full battle gear, ready to enter a cave. Many theorized that this could be the rush to Casterly Rock.

We will also FINALLY see how he drops the covers (in a sense) with Missandei, the most attractive translator since C-3PO.

In short, things seem to be going like clockwork for the Unsullied leader. Which in Westeros means he is guaranteed to die a slow, painful, and heartbreaking death. Bad luck.

Probability: 4/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: Falls in battle with the Lannisters.

12. Brienne of Tarth Β© HBO

Remember the time before Red Wedding - it almost feels like this carefree time never existed, right? Sigh.

But there was. And it was then that Catelyn sent Brienne to King's Landing with Jaime - with the task of tracking down Sansa and Arya and helping them. She took her quite a lot of time, but if Arya actually find her way home should, Brienne has done her job. Better late than never.

She was an amazing figure and the very idea of ​​her death breaks our hearts, but that's exactly why Brienne is very suitable as a Season 7 victim. THIS FUCKING SERIES.

Probability: 5/10 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

How: She is tragically killed by Jaime.

13. At least one of the dragons :( Β© HBO

Because there are almost no direwolves left and apparently we are not granted joy.

I'm almost always wrong about these things, so let me know what YOU think in the comments. And please avoid spoilers if you've already read something about the new season. Thanks!
