This post contains spoilers for season 8 episode 6 of Game of Thrones.

After nearly a decade, the Game of Thrones has finally been won in a surprise upset by Bran Stark. Throughout the season, we lost no less than 14 of the 30 characters in our original bingo board, making for a sufficiently bloody (albeit narratively dissatisfying) final season:

Which brings us to Quartz’s Game of Thrones death pool, which 2,348 readers filled prior to the show’s final episode. They guessed the likelihood of death among the HBO show’s eight remaining central characters, accurately identifying Daenerys Targaryen as the the one most likely not to survive.

Most likely to die Character
1 Daenerys Targaryen
2 Tyrion Lannister
3 Jon Snow
4 Brienne of Tarth
5 Arya Stark
6 Sansa Stark
7 Bran Stark
8 Samwell Tarly
