Here Is Every ‘Game Of Thrones’ Character Who Hasn’t Died… Yet
It’s been more than a week since that season finale — you know, the one where they killed the hero of “Game of Thrones” for no apparent reason other than that George R.R. Martin likes it when we cry.
But now that we’ve got a little distance from the assassination of Jon Snow, it’s time to look on the bright side: Just think of all the people who’ve been on the show, and
Believe it or not, there are still many, many beloved characters alive in the “Game of Thrones” universe. And to comfort ourselves during this long, agonizing wait for the show to return to TV, we’ve rounded up every one of ’em, and ranked them in order of how important it is that they continue to not die. Whose continued existence is vital to our continued viewing pleasure — and who are we totally ready to bury? Let’s start with…
character? NEVER. He’s probably eating a nice roast beef somewhere as we speak.
Live Tyrion Lannister is officially the best thing on “Game of Thrones” now, so he’d better stay that way.
All men must die, but all Stark girls must live. That’s the rule. That we just made up.
Damn straight, we’re stoked that Cersei survived this season. After what they did to her in the finale, her revenge next year is going to be epic.
The lovely Missandei is still alive: Yay. The good ship Missandworm remains afloat: Double yay.
Yep, as long as hope exists of a happily-ever-after for Grey Worm and Missandei, there’s happiness to be found on “Game of Thrones.”
Dany is still around, and so is our hope of seeing more bad-ass dragon-riding scenes come season six. Hooray!
Not gonna lie, we’re very relieved that this Valar didn’t
What kind of monster would deprive “Game of Thrones” fans of a chin that chiseled? Jaime stays.
We refuse to live in a fictional world without Brienne in it.
Considering how bloody things are probably going to get before it’s all over, killing off the show’s best source of comic relief would be both tragic
Sam wants to protect Gilly, and we want Sam to get what he wants, so… yes. Good. Keep on not dying, Gilly.
Definitely not ready to say goodbye to Sam, unless it’s to wave to him as he goes off, alive, to further his education.
Given our fondness for the Starks in general, we hope Bran will continue to stay safe in his underground treehouse.
Despite its ridiculous death count, “Game of Thrones” has done a decent job maintaining its quota of live, sexy men. Approve.
Remember Gendry? We may never see him again, but he survived — and it’s a comfort to know that he’s out there, somewhere, still rowing his tiny boat.
Hodor was absent this hodor, so he has to hodor for at least one more hodor.
After the slaughter at Hardhome, killing more wildlings would just be… overkill.
We haven’t even seen her since season three, but we still want Osha to stick around in the “Game of Thrones” universe.
And aww, good old Davos. Hang in there, dude.
For costuming purposes alone, Margaery must keep showing up. If she dies, so does, like, 75% of my Pinterest account.
Podrick can’t die until a) he’s helped Brienne fulfill her mission, and b) he reveals the secret of his bizarre and unlikely sexual prowess. WE MUST KNOW.
We’re always happy to see Varys! And let’s be real, his longevity on the show is basically a requirement: Who else is going to survive to become the most trusted advisor to whomever wins the game of thrones?
We’re resigned to his eventual death from that greyscale infection, but please let Jorah stay alive long enough to see himself fully redeemed in the eyes of his Khaleesi, mmkay?
to be sacrificed, we’d prefer it was Loras… but ideally, all Tyrells should remain alive, please and thank you.
And with only blonde Baratheon surviving to see season six, we’re glad it was Tommen. He seems pretty cool.
She’s kind of a bad guy, but Ellaria is the one thing that kept us from dying of boredom during the Dorne scenes this year, so hopefully she stays.
Doran needs to stick around long enough for us to find out just what is
I guess it’s cool if Rickon lives on, but to be honest, I’d kind of forgotten he existed.
For awhile there, it seemed like things would be better for everyone if Theon just went ahead and died. But now, it’s all
Cersei’s favorite maester is a total creepmobile, but he’s an interesting character, so let’s not kill him… yet.
Since she might have the power to resurrect a certain someone, we’ll grudgingly admit to wanting Melisandre to stick around. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t still mega pissed at her for Shireen.
Yes, Olly is still alive — not that you deserve it, you tiny useless traitor.
Although we’re not at the point of actively wishing death on Pycelle, we also wouldn’t exactly be devastated if he were to be eaten by a dragon.
Seeing this misogynist fanatic killed off would be no great loss.
It would seem that Gregor Clegane has been resurrected, which means he can go ahead and die, again, and nobody will care, again.
Yawn, yawn, and yawn. They made it through Season 5, but they could’ve gotten rid of all of them without any complaints from us.
This vapid, empty shell of a dude doesn’t really need to keep breathing.
Just think how nice it’ll be when Jon Snow comes back from the dead to kick his smug teeth in.
Blah, blah politics, blah blah strategizing, blah blah delivering Sansa into the arms of a damn psychopath. Would you feel especially tragic about it if Littlefinger kicked the bucket? Yeah, me neither.
The mastermind behind the Red Wedding? Feel free to kill him
