Tyrion

Tyrion makes the mistake of believing his sister would send an army to help fight, but only Jaime shows up in Winterfell. Daenerys tells him he’s either a traitor (and lied to her about the army) or a fool (for not realizing Cersei was lying to him).

“Cersei still sits on the Throne. If you can’t help me take it back, I’ll find another Hand who can,” Daenerys warns Tyrion.

What if she does need to find another Hand — but because he doesn’t survive the battle? Though Daenerys tells him to stay safe in the crypt and not fight because of his mind, who’s to say he will be safe there or won’t still end up in the middle of the battle?

Jaime

Jaime apologizes to Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) for pushing him out of the window and wonders why he didn’t tell anyone. “You wouldn’t be able to help us in this fight if I let them murder you first,” Bran says.

And after? “How do you know there is an afterwards?” Bran asks.

Does Bran know that Jaime doesn’t survive the battle and therefore it doesn’t matter?

Bran

Could Bran know he doesn’t survive the battle, and therefore he won’t be around to tell anyone what Jaime did?

Bran knows the Night King wants him, and he’s planning to act as bait. Even with a plan in place to protect him, it’s still risky.

Podrick

Jaime joins Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) as she watches Podrick (Daniel Portman) training and comments that he’s “come a long way.” Brienne says he still has a lot to learn, and Jaime is sure she’ll teach him. That line may have sealed Podrick’s fate that he won’t have the opportunity to learn from Brienne.

Oh, and Podrick singing in the hours before the battle doesn’t help his chances, either.

Brienne

It’s also possible that Podrick won’t be able to learn anything else from Brienne because she won’t survive.

Not only is there that exchange to consider, but Jaime also knights Brienne just prior to the battle.

Theon

Theon (Alfie Allen) comes to Winterfell to fight for the Starks. Not only did that pretty much seal his death in the Season 8 premiere, but he also volunteers to guard Bran (a.k.a. the Night King bait) during the battle.

“I took this castle from you,” he says. “Let me defend you now.” He may very well defend Bran (and the Starks) by giving up his life.

Tormund

Tormund makes it to Winterfell to reunite with Jon (with quite the attack-hug) and even shares quite the odd story about his past with his fellow fighters.

Considering the focus he’s gotten in the first two episodes of the season (including some very memorable lines), it’s sad that it’s likely he won’t be surviving the battle (or at the very least, the season).

Grey Worm and/or Missandei

Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) tells Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) that he’ll fight for Daenerys until the enemy is defeated, but he says he’ll take her to see the beaches after. Planning for a future after a battle is a clear sign that a character won’t survive.

And just because Grey Worm is the one fighting doesn’t mean that Missandei is safe. She points out she can’t protect herself because her people are peaceful.

Ghost

Jon’s direwolf briefly appears in Episode 2. That short screen time may very well have been to remind fans Ghost is still around — before cruelly killing him.

Arya

Arya (Maisie Williams) has sex with Gendry (Joe Dempsie) the night before the battle.

She also is clearly going to be a significant part of the fight, due to what we’ve seen in trailers already released. Though she still has Cersei (Lena Headey) to kill, she may not get that chance.

Gendry

There’s the fact that Gendry has sex with Arya. It can also be argued that he has served his purpose for the battle: forging the weapons, including the one he made for Arya.

Lyanna Mormont

Jorah (Iain Glen) tries to convince Lady Lyanna (Bella Ramsey) to think about the future of their House and stay safe in the crypt. She refuses to hide and insists on fighting.

Jorah

Prior to going to the crypt, Sam (John Bradley) gives Jorah his family sword, Heartsbane, made of Valyrian steel, for the battle. Being in possession of such a powerful weapon puts him right in the thick of it — and puts a target on his back.

Game of Thrones prepared for the battle against the Night King and his Army of the Dead in the second episode of the final season, and in doing so, set up most of the major fighters to possibly die during it.

There were some moments that do give a few characters an edge. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) talked about dying at Winterfell, so they will likely survive.

From Arya and Gendry's big moment to the Jaime-Brienne-Tormund love triangle.

Jon (Kit Harington) told Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) the truth about who he is, and she now knows what that means for the Iron Throne, so there's too much to explore there for either of them to die in Episode 3.

As everyone gathered to plan the battle, Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) said, "We're all going to die, but at least we die together." Saying someone's going to die does, at times, mean that the opposite will happen on a television show.
