Who will die in the battle of Winterfell? - Here are our theories on episode 3 of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones


Winter is HERE! The Night King and his army of undead White W alkers are storming the gates of Winterfell in the episode 3 of the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

But the REAL question that has the internet in a frenzy is, who survives and who dies? Here’s what we think.


Ser Brienne of Tarth Has to go. She has fulfilled her character arch by returning Katlin Stark’s children to Winterfell and becoming a Knight. And is would seem she has found love in our favorite handless Knight, Ser Jamie Lannister. But if you know game of throne’s, you know good things don’t last forever, and neither will Brienne. 


Ser Jorah Mormont is next on our list of characters who must go. Anyone with eyes can tell that the disgraced knight is DEEPLY in love with our favorite Khaleesi, but now that it’s clear Jon Snow will be her love interest, and Tyrion Lannister will remain hand of the Queen, well Ser Jorah serves no real purpose. And characters who have fulfilled their purpose either ride off into the sunset or get killed off, and we know Game of Thrones writers prefer the latter. 

Grey Worm is a strong and confident leader of the unsullied, and one of Daenerys Targaryen’s top generals, but after finding out in episode 2 that he has intentions of running away with Messandei our confidence in his survival have dwindled out. Looking at Grey Worm’s overall story arch, he only serves 2 purposes to the story as a whole, protect Khaleesi, and fall in love with Messandei. We predict he will give his life protecting his queen or die for falling in love with Messandei. The ONLY thing we think can save him at this point would be HBO’s late aspiration to reach viewers of color, in which case, he may survive to prolong diversity on the show (sad, but true. Remember, there are only 2 important black characters in Westeros now! cant kill them all!). 

Remember, we have no idea whats going to happen but creating theories has been one of the best parts about the last season of HBO’s iconic series. let us know who you think will die or survive!
