Season 8 predictions: The fate of every major 'Game of Thrones' character
Will your favorite character die in the final season? Here are our odds and expert predictions.
We know nothing about Jon Snow's eventual fate, but that's not to say there haven't been a few hints along the way. The character, played by British actor Kit Harington, has long been the odds-favorite to survive to the end. The reveal last season that he's Jaehaerys Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne, gives him an even clearer path to victory.
The problem for many, however, is that it all seems a bit too predictable; a label that "Thrones" has time and again sought to avoid. Snow has survived long odds before – the White Walkers, entire armies, even death – but perhaps these victories are setting us all up for one epic last bow?
If it comes down to Jon taking his last breath, don't expect Melisandre to step in and save the day. At his request, the red priestess vowed to never work her dark magic on resurrecting his soul again.
