[Variety] The final season of Game of Thrones will not disappoint, promise HBO executives who recounted being at the table read for the last few episodes.
“It was a really powerful moment in our lives and our careers,” said Francesca Orsi, HBO SVP of drama, who took part in a panel titled “The Best of HBO” at the INTV Conference in Israel. “None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths.”
In discussing Game of Thrones during the session, Orsi said that at the table read of the final six scripts (“a dream opportunity,” she said), everyone stood up and applauded for 15 to 20 minutes. “It was amazing,” she said of the episodes, which will air in 2019. “By the very end, everyone looked down and looked up and tears were in their eyes.”
The network execs revealed they hope to continue the magic with the potential spinoffs, which Orsi promised will live up to the original. “It feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it,” said Orsi. “That’s why it spawned three, four, five spinoffs,” adding that “we’re going big.”
BG Note: “Valar Morghulis” is a Braavosi greeting spoken in the High Valyrian language. It means “All men must die.” The response is “Valar Dohaeris”, which means “All men must serve.”

All MEN must die. Is that a clue?
(2) ruling until he is of age. He will get the north, and the dragons will always guard the north now. That’s where one spin off story will begin, with him being old enough to rule. I’m super excited!!!
I think Dany is gonna die in child birth having John’s kid. John will then learn from Sam of his paternity and begin flying the dragons. Tyrian will have also find out he’s a Storm Born and will fly dragon two. Both will die killing the ice king. Bran will die as well, because he’s somehow linked to that ice King. Westeros is going to change hands a few more times, but how many? That will have to be seen in a year. I think the final moments are going to be Sansa holding her nephew/cousin and
The ice king will be killed by Jon Snow who will lead the dead as the new Ice King. He will keep the dead army on the other side of the wall so those dingos’ from hell won’t harm his child.
Dany-wins and lives
Kingslayer kills Cersie.
Sam or his wife (or both) live to write the story.
Bran lives in the air around us!
Tyrian lives because I want him to live!
Who will live: Jon Snow and his daughter/cousin, Sansa and Gendry
Who will die: Cersei (she better be burned or she’ll re emerge as the Ice Queen), Danaerys (death from childbirth. She’ll also have to be burned or she’ll possibly be reanimated as the Ice Queen ), Lord Varys (possibly die from betraying the Dragon Queen). Tyrion (He’ll die because people want him to live.) Jamie Lannister (He’ll die at the same time he kills his sister). Arya.
Sansa and Tyrion will be the last 2 standing…fire and ice…the popular theories that Tyrion is Targaryen (also way less obvious than Jon and Dany)
I think Sansa (Maiden) will live, also Sam (Father), Arya (Stranger), Gendry (Smith), Melissandre (Crone), Jon (Warrior) and Gilly (Mother). That means Tyrion dies. I think Daenerys will lose her sanity and she will be killed by Jon (probably at her request), thrusting Longclaw into her heart, like Azor Ahai with Nessa Nessa, creating a new Lightbringer. And I think Jon will renounce to the iron throne and maybe Sam will be king.
Maudie Williams and Sophie Turnervhave publicly stated they read the scripts awhile ago and Rose Leslie has discussed Kit reading the scripts at home..so the actors did indeed read what happens prior to their first table read
I think it’s going to be 2 ppl on the throne in the end. Either Dany and Jon (bc aunt/nephew is so normal compared to all the sibling incest) or Sansa and Aria.
Characters Who Will Live: Jon Snow, Sam, Sansa, and many others

Jon Snow wins the game of thrones but walks away.
die- cersie, arya, khaleesi, Jamie, theon greyjoy,
live- the hound, job snow, tyrion, brienne, greyjoy chick, sansa
Characters Who Will Live: Arya Stark
Characters Who Will Die: Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister-those are the only two I feel almost 100% confident will die before the end.
I also suspect that Jon Snow will die-that Daenerys will birth him a child before they do, and that child will go on to become a great ruler with the guidance of people they trust like Ser Davos, Tyrion Lannister, and Missandei. I think Jaime Lannister will probably die a hero’s death. I think Sansa Stark is a goner…
Will Live: Jon, Arya, Sansa, Bran, Ghost, Tyrion, Brienne, Drogon
Will Die: Cersei, Jaime, Bronn, Daenerys, White Walkers, Viserion and Rhaegal

People applauded for 15 to 20 minutes?
Characters Who Will Live: Jon Snow, Sansa Stark, Arya Stark, Samwell Tarly, Bran Stark,
Characters Who Will Die: Daenerys – child birth, Tyrion – playing both sides? sister wants him dead. Jamie Lannister kills cersei – lying about pregnancy? Theon Greyjoy dies during act of courage, Brienne dies protecting Sansa, Jorah – dies doing something for Daenerys, Tormund dies to make sure Jon lives to be king.
[Optional] Who will WIN the Game of Thrones? Jon Snow, with his child to be future…
15 to 20 minutes of clapping? Please. I was at a show where the lead actress got a 50 second ovation after her big song and THAT was a long ovation.
Live: Arya/Gendry, Sansa, Tyrion, Jaime/Brienne/Tormund, Davos
Die: CERSEI, Dany, Jon, Dragons, Bran.
Jon/Dany die in dragon battle with Bran losing control of ice dragon warg, killing them all.
Win: Sansa/Tyrion will rule the southern kingdom, Arya/Gendry in the North. Divide at the Rhoyne/Riverrun?
Cersei dies by Jaime’s hand, then denies Brienne, who turns to Tormund.
Davos serves Tyrion. Sam serves Gendry, writes the tale.
Jaime sails to Essos.
That’s an interesting comment about Tyrion & Sansa sharing ruling with Arya & Gendry.
Never watched show but I call BS on applauding for “15-20 MINUTES” – seconds, maybe.
Lives : Tyrion, Missandrei, Arya, Sansa, Jon & Danys love child
Dies : Cersie, Jamie, Jon Snow, Dany, and almost every secondary character you can think of.
Winner: Jon & Daenerus’s child will be the rightful heir to the throne.
Live: Tyrion, Bran, Sansa, Sam
Die: Jon, Daenerys, Jaime, Cersei, Arya
Sam & Gilly will live
Everyone else will die
Nobody will win – it will become a republic and it will have all been for nought
i’m surprised someone in her position has such bad foot in mouth syndrome, first saying they were ‘raped’ by the contract negotiations for big little lies and here she is basically saying they want to run the show into the ground by doing so many spinoffs. Seems she could take a PR class or two
I thinking daenrys will die, along with the Queen of Westeros (can’t think of her name),
Dany and Jon will become a tight unit, he will get her pregnant, but in the end he will die, because he already died once and was brought back for a purpose, to kill the Night King, and he will die after his purpose is served. GRR Martin said the end will be bitter sweet, and the sweet will be Dany will rule and will have an heir, but the bitter will be Jon will die. I don’t know who else will live, but I hope Brienne and Tormund have great big giant babies!
Living: Aarya, Jon, Tyrian, Brienne
Dead: Bran as the final solution to save whoever is left
And of course Sam lives.. He will have written the story! Jon’s baby will eventually rule, but Dany
will die in childbirth. Jon will have to kill Bran in order to kill all of the white walkers.
Everyone dies…..But the baby…..
