Sansa Stark

At the end of season 7, Sansa Stark declares that "she's a slow learner, it's true, but that I do learn." The harsh lessons she's picked up over the course of the last several seasons, we predict, will serve her well as a bridge to the finale.

Of all the Starks, Sansa, played by English actress Sophie Turner, is perhaps the best positioned to remain the Lady of Winterfell and possibly even a future Queen of the North. In addition to a strong moral compass, she's also picked up skills in duplicity and cunning under the tutelage of Littlefinger, Cersei and Margaery.

While there's always the chance Sansa could perish in the chaos of what's coming from beyond the Wall, we're of the mind that author George R.R. Martin has other plans for this Stark. Don't be surprised if she's one of several women sitting on thrones when the dust of season 8 finally settles.
