The new season of Game of Thrones returns Sunday, July 16. We know who is favored to sit on the Iron Throne at the end of Season 7 but which of our favorite characters will die first?
Warning: this post will discuss details from the show and contains spoilers.
The Sand Snakes (7/4) are the eight bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell. We last saw them helping their mother (Ellaria Sand, 9/2) kill their uncle, the Prince of Dorne, murder his son Trystane Martell and his betrothed, Myrcella Baratheon. The Sand Snakes and the Dorne plot aren’t popular with show watchers. So, it might please some that reports indicate they could be the first to go.
Yara Greyjoy (4/1) has allied with the Mother of Dragons to regain the Iron Islands but her Uncle Euron Greyjoy wants her dead. Yara is never one to make demands and is up for anything, really. That might also mean death.
Enemies to the East, enemies to the West, enemies to the South, enemies to the North. Cersei (16/1) sits on the Iron Throne for now but how long will that last? The Queen has few friends and many enemies that would like to see her head on a spike. Though she is the favorite to be sitting on the throne at the end of this season so it seems improbable that she would be the first of the major characters to die.
The Stark family is on the rise. After ousting the Bolton’s from Winterfell, Jon Snow was declared the King in the North. However, if George R. R. Martin’s series has taught us anything it’s that the good times won’t last long. In the season seven trailer, Sansa Stark says, “the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.” Could Arya Stark be the lone wolf? Arya is on her own in the Riverlands after slitting the throat of Walder Frey. At 66/1 odds that would be a nice payday.
Dany, Jon, Sansa and Tyrion are all 100/1 longshots. They seem safe, for now.
