6 Game Of Thrones Characters Who Should Die Next

Heads will undoubtedly roll

With the forth season of Game Of Thrones starting next month, Esquire predicts which infamous characters will get their heads chopped off next.

Will it be Walder, Pycelle or Sansa?

Or let's face it: all three?



1 | King Joffrey

The Red Witch Melisandre has cursed him, so it’s odds-on that he’s for the chop. Plus, he’s a despicable little knave. Got to go, hasn’t he?

2 | Stannis Baratheon

He has the best claim to the throne as King Robert’s eldest surviving brother, but Stannis is too cold, ruthless, and too in thrall to the dark magic to lead. Off with his head.

3 | Walder Frey

Having broken the sacred Guest Right on the infamous night of the Red Wedding, by murdering other key players, Walder Frey deserves his comeuppance at the pointy end of a sword.

4 | Tywin Lannister

Most Popular

Everyone respects the Hand of the King, but it’s a job that comes with a limited lifespan. Without its patriarch, the Lannister family could easily fall. Case made. He goes.

5 | Pycelle

The Grand Maester is a scheming, lickspittle member of council who will do anything to further his own position. Chopping off his beard was not enough. Head on spike, please.

6 | Sansa Stark

She’s pretty, she’s dumb, and she’s a pawn in everyone else’s game. How much longer can she last? Sansa should go but only after strangling Joffrey with the Lannister necklace.

Game of Thrones series four starts 7 April on Sky Atlantic. Taken from Esquire's Aprill issue, on newsstands now.
