How your predictions fared for week 3: The Long Night
Last week saw a big upswell of support for Tyrion Lannister, as overwhelmingly readers put him down as loyal and to remain at Daenerys’s right hand for the foreseeable future.
The dead-pool we ran turned out to get nothing right – perhaps Game of Thrones is turning into a show that surprises you by not killing off the main characters. Several times we thought Grey Worm was definitely done for, in the whirl of action around Winterfell – close but no cigar.
On a downer note, maybe we’re never going to learn what those spiral patterns the White Walkers left actually meant. If the Night King was going to get a monologue, this would have been the week.
On the longer-term view, almost nobody thinks that Sansa and Dany will wind up best buds. Are these two the main contenders for who will rule Westeros at the end of the show?
