This new Game of Thrones theory predicts who will die based on the new poster

trending 05/04/2019

Only just over a week to go until the premiere of season 8, and we are SO AMPED. (And sad, obv. We don't want it to enddddd!)

HBO, the network who release the show, have been teasing us with VERY unnerving teaser footage (see above), and now they've followed it up with what we reckon is the most shocking poster in the show's history.

What we're shown in the new poster is basically a big pile of all our fave characters lying dead in an icy pile of bodies, kind of resembling the Iron Throne. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO US!

Thanks to eagle-eyed Redditor Jnemo412, who identified and labelled all the characters, we can see from left to right (outer circle): we have Grey Worm, Sam, The Hound, Melisandre, Jaime Lannister, Arya Stark, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, the Night King, Cersei Lannister, Pod, Varys, The Mountain, and Davos—as well as (inner circle) Brienne of Tarth, Tyrion Lannister, Bran Stark, Sansa Stark, Missandei, and Euron.

Naturally fans are reading into this majorly, with the most obvious interpretation being that everyone ends up dead. Not ideal. AT ALL. 

A pretty interesting theory from Reddit user JimmyNice suggests that everyone on the right side of the image ends up dead, with everyone on the left side surviving:

"What if the left side of the picture lives and the right side dies? I can’t imagine they would do this in an image, but A LOT of them match people’s estimations of who would die. The ones outside of this theory for me are Sansa on the right and Melisandre and Jaime on the left."

What do you guys reckon?
