Create your own “Game of Thrones” season 8 death pool for episode 5

This pool has closed. You can make your predictions for the final episode of the season, here.

Episode 4 of the final season of Game of Thrones,The Last of The Starks,” was a return to old school GoT form. In other words, there was plenty of backstabbing, treason, sex, and a beheading to boot.

The army of the dead is presumably defeated, but Cersei’s army, it seems, is just getting started. In any case, there are still two more episodes left in the final season, and at least one more confrontation—plenty of time for more death.

Welcome to Quartz’s Game of Thrones Death Pool. Now is the time to lay your bets on who is most likely to kick the bucket next. To consider: Which character has nearly completed their redemption arc or storyline? Who stands a real chance of sitting on the Iron Throne? Have the Night King and his White Walkers really been defeated after 8,000 years of strategic military planning? And who remains on Arya Stark’s kill list?

To keep things simple for our death pool, we have stuck to 10 of the show’s primary characters—those who have been with us since the early episodes. Who will survive to see spring?

The pool for episode five has closed. Let’s see if you can predict accurately for episode six.
