Game Thrones season 8 is still just under a year away, but that’s alright with us. Since this will be the last season the series, it is well worth the wait. Once it’s over, it’s over, so we’ll just enjoy the speculation and anxiety for now. In the last few months, two leaks (that have been taken down) gave fans minor clues at what is to come. The first leak featured a note from the show’s producers that thanked the cast for filming a grueling 55-night battle scene. The second leak came from the actor who plays Rhaegar Targaryen. On his Instagram, he revealed that he was filming flashback scenes for season 8, which leads fans to believe that the long-rumored (and pretty much confirmed) Rhaegar Targaryen + Lyanna Stark = Jon Snow storyline will be a main focus.
According to Hypebeast, data scientist Taylor Larkin (who works for DataRobot) created an algorithm to help predict the results who will die in the final season Game Thrones.
The algorithm based its predictions on over 2,000 living and dead characters from the A Song Ice and Fire novels. House, age, gender, and nobility, among other variables, were used to determine which characters might perish. The predictions are based on the novels though, which have not aligned with the show’s storyline for quite some time now. Still, fans do know that central plot points to the show and novels remain the same. If you don’t want to know who might get killed, we suggest you stop reading now. The predictions, from most likely to least likely to die, are as follows:
Daenerys Targaryen – 83.77% chance death
Jaime Lannister – 72.91% chance death
Tyrion Lannister – 70.76% chance death
Bran Stark – 66.02% chance death
Cersei Lannister – 60.39% chance death
Jon Snow – 58.99% chance death
Euron Greyjoy – 54.95% chance death
Sansa Stark – 50.28% chance death
Arya Stark – 49.04% chance death
Gendry – 39.87% chance death
