This is who Game of Thrones fans think will die next


There are two things to be gleaned from the following graphic.

The product of Reddit user Iron Bank of Braavos, these are the results of some 7,000 Game of Thrones fans voting on who they believe will meet the freely swinging axe of George R R Martin next. 

Before we jump to the conclusion of the poll (spoiler: it's not Jon Snow), take a moment to consider point of interest number one: there are 60 characters in this chart.

Six. Zero.

That's 60 characters brought forth by the mind of Martin - crafting their personalities, penning dialogue (sure, not much of an undertaking in Hodor's case), inevitably setting them up for a bloody end - and it doesn't even include those he's already polished off. What a man. What a grim, twisted little man.

Anyway, to the results, and the more important point of interest...


Now, if you've read the books (of course you have), the top answer of Balon Greyjoy should come as no surprise.


While some aspects of the TV have overtaken Martin's written source material, other strands of the story are lagging behind. Balon Greyjoy dies under mysterious circumstances crossing a rope bridge in A Feast For Crows - setting up events that see the wider Greyjoy family spat to choose his successor. 

The TV show might drop this storyline, but if HBO is looking for an easy victim, Balon is a safe bet.
