All in all, while the last half of Season 8 was shaky at best, Game of Thrones was able to come out with a passable ending. It wasn’t the epic conclusion that fans had their hearts set out on for a variety of reasons, but it at least made sense, and its an ending that fans can make peace with in the long run, just as Westeros did with their new ruler.
With all of our favorite characters saying goodbye ahead of an epic showdown, is there actually a possibility that they will live through it? The short answer is no. Not a chance. Nada. Zilch.
So here’s my fearless forecast on who lives through the Battle of Winterfell. Let’s see how it stacks up to the odds tomorrow.
This battle was so graphic and so unexpected that it made me write about a standalone episode for the first time. By the time the two champions were down, I was screaming my head off because of shock.

All in all, the Battle of the Blackwater was one of the ultimate underdog victories in the Game of Thrones universe (well, next to the Battle of Castle Black and Battle of the Bastards) and managed to establish the characters of the contenders for the Iron Throne in an exciting and effective fashion. There were many layers to this battle, both tactically and politically and there is no question why so many characters from this masterful episode have fallen on the wayside of the continuing war in Westeros and beyond.
