The second episode of the final season felt like a wave of farewell to many of the characters we have come to know and love before they inevitably make their last reverence during the Battle of Winterfell. Actually, nobody is safe. When asked if the crypts of the castle were actually a good place to be, as we were repeatedly assured in the program, writer Bryan Cogman told HuffPost: “No comments.” With that said, here are the people who are probably in danger in episode 3.:
Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen)
Why: Jorah received the steel sword Valyrian Heartsbane from Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) in Episode 2, which means that she may face some White Walkers quite soon.
Damned quote: Sam to Jorah: “I’ll see you when I finish.”
Obit early: It’s been a long road for Jorah la Andal. Before the series began, he sold poachers to the slavers and fled Westeros to avoid being beheaded for it. Then he spied for Varys (Conleth Hill), was discovered and banished by Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), hired in grayscale, found a treatment and finally returned to Dany’s inner circle when she King of the Friendzone, giving you some (last?) advice. Once he lost the honor of carrying his family’s sword, and after receiving the sword from Sam’s family, his story seems to be coming to an end.
Odds of dying: Khal is more than maybe.
Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen)
Why: Theon returned to Winterfell to fight for the Starks once again after betraying his confidence and invading his home on behalf of the Greyjoys in Season 2.
Damned quote: Theon to Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright): “I took this castle away from you. Let me defend you now.
Obit earlyAfter being raised with the Stark children in Winterfell, Theon decided to take sides with his father and betray the King in the North, Robb (Richard Madden). He invaded Winterfell and burned two innocent children alive, pretending they were Bran and Rickon (Art Parkinson), before Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) finally made him prisoner, forcing him to become “Reek”. After several rounds of physical and verbal torture in the hands of Ramsay, Theon realized the true weight of what he had done and then helped Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) escape the clutches of Bolton’s bastard. He fought with his sister, Yara (Gemma Whelan), for a few seasons, but soon came to appreciate his roots Stark and Ironborn. He is now in the North, ready to fight for the Starks once again. Only this bow is sufficient proof that Theon will die protecting the three-eyed Raven, also known as Bran, in a battle with the Night King and his army.
Odds of dying: “What is dead may never die.” That said, R.I.P., Theon.
Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)
Why: Jaime was granted permission to fight for life in Winterfell and even the knight Brienne de Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), solidifying his hard fight as a man of honor … who is probably going to die.
Damned quote: Jaime to Brienne: “I’m not the fighter I used to be, but I would feel honored to serve under your command if you have me.”
Obit early: At the beginning of the series, Jaime was definitely not a virtuous man. He was famous for stabbing the Mad King Aerys Targaryen in the back after swearing to protect him and then pushing a 10-year-old Bran out the window, leaving the child paralyzed. But, particularly thanks to a long trip with Brienne, Jaime eventually becomes a better man, a person who understands what loyalty really means. Finally, he decided to leave his sister and lover Cersei (Lena Headey) in the dust and fight for the survival of Westeros along with his former opponents. And it is transcendental.
Odds of dying: Bran told Jaime that he was not sure if there would be a “after”.
Gray Worm and / or Missandei (Jacob Anderson and Nathalie Emmanuel)
Why: If you are booking your Carnival Cruise on the beach before the big battle, you are probably not there.
Damned quotes: Missandei: “I would like to see the beaches again”.
Gray Worm: “Then I’ll take you there.”
Early obits: Gray Worm and Missandei entered the scene in Season 3, as a result of the sacking of Astapor by Dany, and since then they have become two of their most trusted advisers. Even though Gray Worm was not immaculate, part of a group of eunuch warriors, the couple also found love in a place without hope. To be honest, everything is just as well happy. Nobody should be so happy in “Game of Thrones”, and that is why their trips may come to an end.
Odds of dying: Do not make any non-refundable payments on that cow and yet.
Being Brienne de Tarth (Gwendoline Christie)
Why: Having waited years to feel seen and respected, Brienne is a gentleman by Jaime in an emotional ceremony in Episode 2, making his death seem inevitable.
Damned quote: Jaime to Brienne: “Get up, Brienne de Tarth, a Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.”
Obit early: In “Game of thrones”, Brienne is one of the only characters who have never been more than loyal, first to Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony), then to Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) and now to Sansa, as the honor demanded. She is a warrior unlike any other in Westeros, remember when she beat the dog of the Hound (Rory McCann)? – And without a doubt he will go down defending those he loves.
Odds of dying: “In the name of the warrior, I ask you to be brave”.
All the people in the crypts
Why: There has been a lot of talk, and inside, about the crypts of the last two episodes. Everything seems to allude to the idea that something big is about to fall below Winterfell, which could involve a lot of dead Starks.
Conviction date (s): Gendry (Joe Dempsie) to Arya (Maisie Williams): “It’s going to be safer in the crypt, you know?”
Gilly (Hannah Murray) to the little girl from the north: “I will be in the crypt with my son and I will feel much better with you to protect you”.
Jon Snow (Kit Harington) to Bran: “We’ll put you in the crypt where it’s safest.”
Dany to Tyrion (Peter Dinklage): “Being Davos (Liam Cunningham) is perfectly capable of waving a torch on your own, you will be in the crypt … you are here for your mind. If we survive, I will need it.”
Sam about Gilly and little Sam: “They’ll be safe, in the crypt.”
Jorah to Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey): “You’ll be safer in the crypt, these things we’re fighting …”
Obit early: Tyrion. Sansa Varies Gilly. Little Missandei sam. Unless these characters find a way to save not only the children but themselves, the destruction of the White Walker will be much larger than anticipated. Think about it: the corpses of the past Starks amount to more bodies for the Night King’s army. We do not believe that the Starks are necessarily so friendly this time …
Odds of dying: As the northern girl says to Davos: “Okay, I’ll defend the crypt then.” Then, maybe everyone will come out alive. Or not. Probably. Perhaps?
Gendry (Joe Dempsie)
Why: He just slept with his old friend, Arya. Then, of course he will die.
Damned quote: Gendry about White Walkers: “You want to know what they are like, death, that’s what they are.”
Obit early: Gendry is the blacksmith bastard son of the late King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy). After Melisandre (Carice van Houten) treated her with the leech therapy (a king’s blood is magical, of course), Gendry finally rowed home to the King’s Landing before being summoned by Davos to fight against the dead beyond the Wall. (Instead of fighting, he ran a lot, but you understand). Now, he is making weapons for the North to defend all of humanity, and will fight alongside his new love, Arya.
Odds of dying“We’re probably going to die soon,” Arya tells him, so 10/10.
Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer)
Why: Beric It is used mainly as a secondary character these days, so it seems that his sword of fire is about to become extinct.
Damned quote: Beric: “The Lord of Light has brought us together anyway. This is your moment. ”
Obit early: Beric directed the Brotherhood without Banners in previous seasons of the program, even ending up on Arya’s list at one point after selling his now friend with Gendry benefits to Melisandre. His most notable contribution has shown us that people in “Game of Thrones” can return from the dead, since Thoros de Myr (Paul Kaye) revived him six times. Since Thoros has left the game in season 7, it is likely that there will be no resurrection this time.
Odds of dying: If the wights do not catch him, the Hound will throw him over the castle wall.
Eddison Tollett (Ben Crompton)
Why: When you realize that you and your friends are part of the last left of the Night’s Watch, and your friends are waaay More popular than you, you can probably bet that you’re the next to go.
Daming appointment: Edd: “The last man left, burns the rest of us.”
Obit early: Eddison, also known as Dolorous Edd, is a brother of the Night’s Watch and is friends with Sam Tarly and Jon Snow. He has been in the middle of all this from the beginning, taking over the Wall during the Battle of Castle Black and going with Jon to Hardhome. Edd took over as commander of the Night’s Watch after Jon’s resurrection and has now reached the Battle of Winterfell, where he probably will not.
Odds of dying: And now your guard is over.
Podrick (Daniel Portman)
Why: You can not sing such a sad and beautiful song about a montage of characters (possibly) addressing his death and hoping to get out alive.
Damned quote: Sing “I never wanted to leave” a million times.
Obit early: Podrick began as Tyrion’s squire during the War of the Five Kings, even saving his life during the Battle of Blackwater. As a gift, Tyrion took him to a brothel, where apparently the employees liked him so much that they did not want him to pay his time. (Precisely why it remains one of the biggest mysteries of the program). Later he joined Brienne’s service, learning to fight under his command and proving to be a faithful companion. However, as Brienne pointed out, he still had much to learn before the Battle of Winterfell.
Odds of dying: It seems we’re never going to find out why women like Pod so much …
Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey)
Why: She’s definitely going to hunt the biggest White Walker she can find.
Damned quote: “I will not hide under the ground. I promised to fight for the North, and I will fight. ”
Obit early: The head of House Mormont came into our lives in Season 6 and found a place in our hearts permanently after declaring Jon Snow the King in the North. She has been telling adults what to do since then, and she will continue to be a fan’s favorite from this day until her last day.
Odds of dying: We could get one more speech from Lyanna before it ends.
Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju)
Why: He’s already been making do with the Giant’s Milk for too long.
Damned quote: “We’re all going to die, but at least we die together.”
Obit early: Tormund, once Wildling was dedicated to assassinate members of the Night’s Watch, has since become a strong supporter and friend of Jon Snow, the commander of the Night’s Night’s Guard. He supposedly got his name after breast-feeding on a giant’s nipple for three months. In addition, it is an assumption bear enthusiast.
Odds of dying: There is a greater likelihood that Brienne has romantic feelings for Tormund than he did for leaving the Battle of Winterfell.
