You Win or You Die: Season 6, Episode 8 Scoring Update

If I had the opportunity to put money down on one of our rostered characters getting offed in “No One,” I would have done it. Luckily, I did not have said opportunity, and therefore am not quite as upset about the lack of action.

Still, show writers Weiss and Benioff are giving us all the signs that these last two episodes could go completely nuclear, especially with Dany finally returning to Meereen; I doubt that siege is going to last much longer with Drogon subbing in. He doesn’t look like he has any jokes.

I’d like to pour one out for our deceased members of the waiver wire: characters who had appearances in season 6 that would have been allowed to be picked up next season, but have now passed on to the great beyond. Here’s to the Waif, Blackfish, Lady Crane, Khal Moro, Osha, and Ian McShane. Oh, and how can I forget this kid?


It’s safe to say there’s a select group of characters who are in real danger this coming weekend, and judging by the title of the episode, “The Battle of the Bastards,” I’m betting a majority of the full 60 minute episode will take place near Winterfell, with the Jon and Ramsay bout serving as the title card.

And the undercards we should be worried about? I’m going with Harold Karstark, Brienne, Sansa, Ser Davos, Podrick, and Tormund. There’s obviously plenty of people in King’s Landing who are in deep trouble, but I think this episode is going to focus too heavily on the north for me to make any educated guesses on people in the Red Keep, or Essos for that matter.
