Don’t be so surprised! Tyrion will die in next season of Game of Thrones. He is the most lovable character in the series so we strongly believe that George R.R. Martin will definitely kill him. It’s just a theory, so don’t get too excited about it.
Why is this so?
George R.R. Martin likes to attach his audience to a certain character and then kill that character in the most unexpected way, just to make you suffer! Let’s go back at the beginning of the series. You all cheered for Ned Stark, he was the promised cure for the turmoil in Westeros but you all remember how far he got, till the end of episode 9 season 1.
Ok, this was a big tragedy but at least we had Khal Drogo who promised Daenerys to win the world for her. This way Drogo will also avenge Ned Stark by killing the Lannisters. No, wait, Khal Drogo died in season 1 finale!
Move on to season 2. The more you watch season 2 the bigger the hatred against the Lannisters (except for Tyrion of course). Opposite to this hatred, you heart grows fonder for Robb Stark and his family.
Well, don’t get so attached to the Starks, George R.R. Martin decided to kill most of them in season 3 episode 9. You remember ‘The Red Wedding’ right?
In season 4 we finally got satisfied with Joffrey’s death and became even more attached to Tyrion as we all sympathized with the injustice that was made to him. In the season’s finale Tyrion turned against his own family by killing Tywin and escaping from King’s Landing.
Moving on to season 5. Jon snow became one of the most likable characters (besides Tyrion) and he was growing bigger as a leader of the Night’s Watch. And all our hopes were wiped out with Jon’s death in season 5 finale. George R.R. Martin decided to kill him, and gave him the title ‘Traitor’.
Don’t worry so much, George R.R. Martin changed his mind and resurrected Jon in season 6. While Jon was trying to find a way to win the North, Tyrion was helping Daenerys to keep the peace in Mereen.
Tyrion became the most likable character in the series. No matter which house you favor, you definitely like Tyrion. And this is a very good reason why we believe that the writer of the books will kill him. Will he really do it? Will he resurrect Tyrion if he kills him?
