I am so excited for Sunday night! Who else is looking forward to the start of season 7? I just compiled a list of the major and minor players who are left in the game, as of the end of S6:
Jon, Ghost, Sansa, Davos Seaworth, Tormund Giantsbane. Petyr Baelish, Robyn Arryn. Brienne, Podrick Payne.
Lady Mormont and Lords Glover, Karstark, Manderley.
The Hound. Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr. Melisandre. Gendry? Quaithe? Jaqen H’ghar? (SYRIO FOREL?) Dolorous Edd.
Cersei, The Mountain, Qyburn. Jaime, Bronn. Edmure Tully.
Daenerys, Tyrion, Varys, Yara, Theon, Missandei, Grey Worm, Olenna Tyrell, Ellaria Sand, the three Sand Snakes. Daario Naharis (might be out of story), Jorah Mormont. Euron Greyjoy. Kinvara.
Drogon, Rhaegal, Viserion.
Bran, Meera. Benjen/Coldhands. The Night King.
Sam Tarly, Gilly.
I know I should make some sort of meat pie for dinner that night, but I may go with a nice salad, ha. I was eating fried chicken during my re-watch of S6, and it was a little on the nose, so to speak.
So do you have any predictions? I think Cersei is not going to make it to the end, but will likely be the last or one of the last to die on the show, in season 8. Will it be Jamie who takes her out (as he did the Mad King), or will it be Arya? It’s gotta be one of those two, right? I think we will learn how dragonglass gets made, as Daenerys will have her kids whip up a fresh batch in order to help in the fight against the Night King. I think we’ll see Quaithe again. I think Gendry may have finally stopped rowing, after like four seasons of it — his delts must be RIPPED. And with luck, we’ll get Nymeria back, Arya’s direwolf! I would HATE to see Brienne, Tormund, or Bronn get killed, but none would surprise me. Tormund Giantsbane is my celebrity crush! And I’m still holding out hope that Jaqen H’ghar is actually Syrio Forel...
