The final season of Game of Thrones is just around the corner. The highly-anticipated conclusion of the HBO hit series has fans wondering who will come away with the Iron Throne, and also wondering which beloved characters will meet their ultimate fate in the epic final battle.
Well, scientists are here to help.
Computer scientists studying at the Technical University of Munich used a lot of data to determine the answer to those questions in a study dubbed A Song of Ice and Data.
So, who will die and who has the best chance at surviving? Let’s take a look.
The character with the highest chance of survival is none other than Daenerys Targaryen, who has less than a 1 percent chance of death. Tyrion Lannister, Varys, Samwell Tarly, and Jaime Lannister are all also expected to survive, with their chances of death at less than 4 percent.
Things aren’t looking as good for Bronn, however. Bronn has a whopping 93.5 percent chance at death, while Gregor Clegane sits at 80.3. Sansa Stark and Bran Stark also have more than a 57 percent chance of dying during the final season.
Here is a collection of all of the data in the A Song of Ice and Data report.
Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere on Sunday, April 14, 2019, at 9:00 p.m. ET. You can watch every episode on HBO, HBO Go, and HBO Now. After waiting nearly two years for the final season of the most popular show on television, fans now have a taste of what to expect in the final episodes including the epic, episode-long battle that is expected to be the “longest consecutive action sequence in cinema history,” according to Entertainment Weekly.
And if we are to believe an early review from John Thompson of GQ, the season premiere may be the best the series has ever offered and one of the most humorous Game of Thrones episodes to air.
