Everyone who has sent in their picks as of 5 AM today is on the spreadsheet, found here.

If you're not familiar with Google Drive, first of all, it's probably time for your pills at the old folks home, but there are two sheets. One has the multiple choice questions, the second has the death lists - some of which are so long I thought you had just copy/pasted the original list.

Feel free to check your picks and email me if I've messed anything up.
A couple of you didn't include your user name, so I used your first name and last initial.

Let's just say if Jon doesn't kill the NK and Jaime doesn't kill Cersei, we're going to have a lot of messy brackets.

And for everyone killing my boy Tormund, screw you.


If you missed the original post, here's what the game is and what it entails if you want to play.

Ok, here's the contest I mentioned earlier. Multiple choice questions are worth 10 points if you get them right. For all the characters, you're picking dead or alive. Each one you get right is worht 1 point. If you want, you can just send me your list of deads, should make it easier on me.

All picks are due March 17, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. CDT. That's 1 month before the show starts so hopefully spoilers will be minimal. If you miss the cutoff, too bad. If you feel like there's something wrong with a question, or I missed someone on the death pool or I messed up your picks, please email me. That will make things a lot simpler than going through the thread over and over. I'll post a big spreadsheet after everyone turns in picks and post the link here. Then update it every Monday during the season.

This is a game I play each year with a few friends. Not claiming it's the greatest thing around. You can take or leave as you like. And if the guy who used to bug me on how I ran the Survivor Pick'em a few years ago is reading this, for the love of God leave me alone.

The email address for your picks is: 4thethrone@protonmail.com.

When Dany is in the house of the undying at the end of season 2, she walks through the burned down throne room of kings landing during winter. Seems pretty obvious to foreshadow that something is happening there this season and kings landing as a whole may not be there by seasons end. Working from an assumption that the castle and potentially all of kings landing will be destroyed by the end of the season :

Is it through dragon fire? I think all the seasons have led us to believe that Dany is unwilling to take power through killing the innocent. So, dragon fire destroying the throne room seems unlikely, unless the night king sends his dragon up there.

So, the only other choice would be the wildfire. Cersei, after the battle in episode 5, has lost. Knowing she has lost, she may actually accomplish something that the mad king only attempted to do; Cersei is going to burn down kings landing. Although it would be interesting if Jaime has the chance to kill her and is unable to (as a juxtaposition to killing his king to save the people vs not killing his sister and all the people dying), I think it blows up his entire arc if he has the chance to kill her and doesn't. So I don't think Jaime will be put in that position.

Potentially, there could be a showdown between tyrion and Cersei, after Cersei has lost. Tyrion, in a moment of famial weakness, decides not to kill her and tells her to run away and hide. Instead of running, she goes to the basement and triggers the wildfire and kills all of kings landing. I just don't know why Tyrion would ever be alone with Cersei again, without Jon or Dany, though. How could he ever be in a situation to spare her?

Final thought is that the vision Dany has is simply inconsistent writing between seasons and her vision means nothing. You can never tell with this show.

Got a feeling this season Sweet Robin air-in out the moon door he'll be. No leads, just a feeling.

Nice post. I've often thought the same about Cersei, that she'd much rather watch it all burn than have someone kill her / take her prisoner. And with Qyburn around, you know there are probably some extremely crazy contingency plans. Jaime killing her as he once killed Aerys sounds good on paper, but what if Cersei is still pregnant with Jaime's child when he comes to do the deed? He's changes his ways, but can he kill his own sister and an innocent unborn child?

Although it would make no sense storywise, I've always wanted to have the final scene of the series be an insanely laughing Qyburn on the Iron Throne with the Mountain standing in front of him waiting to take on the overwhelming army of Wights/White Walkers entering the throne room.

6 episodes. We aren't going to see that messed up little kid again.

In regards to Jamie, he is effectively dead to Cersei now. There is no going back. And if in fact they do meet again, which I think they will, and he is put in a position where he must kill her to save the innocent, which I think will happen, he will do it.

Jamie, Jorah, and Theon......all living on borrowed time to trade their lives to at best, restore honor, or at the least, break even.

Still think Cersei's baby is simple manipulation tactics to work her family

She was drinking what I assume to be wine in the trailer, so it's possible.

If Cercei was pregnant in 1960, she'd be smoking cigarettes, drinking and taking thalidomide. I think she is manipulating everybody with the pregnancy, but I doubt the wine means anything

Or if she was pregnant NOW in certain areas that say "Roll Tide" you'd be correct. Although it's more than likely to be Schlitz rather than wine.

She just made such a point about it in her conversation with Tyrion it was just something to note.

It could be a case of hysterical pregnancy due to stress and her need for attention.

Really wish they'd take 10-20 minutes of an episode and give us more WW back story. What is their ultimate motivation. Every one dead or one of them? What happens after that? They all stand around patting each other on the back drinking ice coffee? The Emperor wanted order ruled by the Sith; Voldemort wanted a world of pure blood wizards ruling and everyone else subservient. Does the NK actually want something other than death to the living? I mean those guys are wearing clothes and have forged weapons, they've got some kind of society somewhere, right?

Not to mention giant chains.

I've asked before but I'm genuinely confused about who the night king has access to for his army.

The WW have to actually touch the body to turn it into a wight, right? So we shouldn't be seeing zombies of people who are entombed or cremated, right? I've seen some comments here and there suggesting that it could be anyone who ever died, but that ain't right, is it?

But those are immediately available bodies. It's not like he is going to stroll into a graveyard and raise folks that have been buried a long time.


But didn't he do that with skeletons when Bran was becoming the 3 eyed raven?

She was ready to do just that (suicide) when King's Landing was looking like it was going to be overrun.
