The next prologue will star . . . . a Tyrell brother

That said, I believe the prologue might come in one of the following two forms:
1) I see it being a Dothraki soldier (I'm surprised no one's mentioned this yet) who is opposed to Dany (a woman) leading yet another army of Dothraki. If she actually does get them to "bend the knee" with Drogon, I see this soldier speaking out against it as the army marches in one direction or another and is killed because of it.
2) Another Maester, probably someone at the Citadel, who recognizes Pate (Jaqen H'gar supposedly) as having an Archmaester's key and releasing / discovering whatever it is Jaqen's plan is before being killed. This gives us a nice segue into the happenings of Oldtown and a good place to pick up Sam's tale.

My choices for Maesters biting it the prologue would be (1) Qyburn -- maybe he's the one who gets killed by Robert Strong, (2) the Tyrell maester appointed to replace Pycelle, or (3) the maester of Storm's End, who is there when Aegon etc. take the fortress.

Though it didn't, we see the Knight of Griffin's Roost before Kevan. So a raven must have survived.
I don't remember what did the Iron Throne know in the epilogue. May be they took Storm's End, and that's where the raven came from, but that prologue would be useless to the story.
I think we need a northern prologue. Winterfell or the Wall.
My other choice would be the Citadel, or KL.

I would love to learn about skagos. But we can get that from Davos. Why should it be rickon?

On the contrary, I firmly believe that GRRM could make literary jewel from six-year-old POV and would really like to see that!
No, he wouldn't. Not all prologue POV characters die!

I agree, he's been portrayed as such a decent man. His limited scenes with Sansa and Tyrion always stood out to me in ASOS.
Probably means he'll get the "Ned Stark treatment."
Yeah... except for that one time he poisoned the king.

Waymar Royce: Killed by Others.
Maester Cressan: Killed by powerful/magical person from Essos (Mel)
Chet: Killed by Others
Pate: Killed by powerful/magical person from Essos (Jaquen/Facelessman)
Varamyr: Killed by Others
Could this complicate the picture?
This could make Haldon Half-Maester a possible candidate, especially for those who think Greyscale has a big role to play going forward.
I also could see a Maester in service to Daven Lannister being killed.
Any chance we'll see the Iron Bank killing anyone? They have to have their due right?

Just all the prologue POVs so far (and all of the epilogue POVs as well), but that might not mean it is a hard and fast rule. Still, I would expect--based on past performance--that the Winds of Winter prologue POV will be dead by the time the first chapter begins.

I'm more interested in what the next prologue will set up. I'm starting to lean more to the side of something happening at the Citadel, since Jaqen / the Faceless Man at the opening of A Feast for Crows and the events that took place have yet to be mentioned or even explored at a shallow level yet.
