The Sunset King Posted January 16, 2012 Share Posted January 16, 2012 I suspect that TWOW will not have both Euron and Victarion die. More likely that one or maybe even both will survive; Euron especially has a good chance of making it to the seventh book. One of them is going to continue trying to pull off major schemes even if he is ultimately brought down through a failed battle or revolution on the Iron Isles. What might happen is that most of the main Greyjoys die but one of them survives and remains an important player.I consider it unlikely that Jon is permanently gone. Most likely in my opinion is that he survives warged into Ghost, although it is possible that he did not die at all (very badly wounded thouh) or did die without warging but will be revived. However, there very well may be some side effects from bringing him back to life, though not like what happened to Catelyn. Regardless of how he comes back, I think it very probable that Melisandre will establish a closer relationship with him in some fashion. Melisandre is likely to survive this book. Odds are good that Jon will finally check the Winterfell crypts this book after Winterfell is retaken.It also may be that King's Landing finally does change hands in this book. Aegon is a decent candidate but there are other possibilities as well. Even if Aegon does not take King's Landing I doubt he will die near the beginning of the book (though he very well might later on or in book seven). I rate Cersei's chances of survival in this book as basically being a coin flip. At some point she is going to die whether it be in King's Landing or Casterly Rock. UnCatelyn is likely to be eliminated in some fashion sooner rather than later. Not sure what would happen if she ends up encountering Stannis in the Riverlands. That could be interesting if it transpires. Things look pretty decent for Margaery's survival on the surface....but there may be some kind of bloodstained plot twist that leads to her death. Perhaps Varys or someone else will help completely seal the fate of the Lannister claim to the kingship by eliminating her in some manner. If she does die it is likely to be through fairly twisted means.Mayhaps Doran will be assassinated by Darkstar (I mean come on, he must have SOMETHING to do), which leaves the impulsive Arianne in command and free to side with Team Aegon over Team Dany. This would also give Areo something to do before hopefully dying himself. Just pure speculation.This sounds plausible. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
