Game of Thrones is one of the biggest TV shows costing an average $6 million dollars per episode. Some of the most prominent cast members get paid an annual salary of $5 million or $500,000 per episode. So when their characters get the ax, they’re probably mourning the passing of their characters a lot more than we are. There are about 4.5 murders per episode and over 100 major characters that got the boot. With all the armies getting ready for the final battle, a lot of casualties are bound to happen and not everyone will survive.
In the word of Tyrion Lannister, “are you afraid? You should be. You’re in the great game now. And the great game is terrifying.”
Since no one is safe on the set of Game of Thrones, we’ve chosen the next 15 important characters who probably won’t survive the next season.
