THEY'LL EITHER WINOR THEY'LL DIE! How will it end for the main characters? We predict happy and unhappy endings.

GAME OF THRONES Mon 2am and 9pm Sky Atlantic

It's the brutal and bloody drama that refuses to pander to our desire for 'happily ever afters'.

IFrom nice guy Ned Stark's beheading in Series One to heroic Hodor's tragic demise, the Game of Thrones writers have delighted in killing off our favourite characters in the most gruesome and graphic ways imaginable.

As the sex, violence and dragons epic returns for the eighth and final season, we borrow the Three-Eyed Raven's powers of prophecy to predict the destinies of six major players.

Will their endings be gory - or glorious?

JON SNOW (KIT HARINGTON)

FEELGOOD VIBES The King in the North leads the war against the Army of the Dead, heroically killing the Night King with a mighty blow from his Valyrian steel sword, Longclaw.

UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER

Having come back from death once before, Jon is not so lucky this time. The Night King skewers him with an ice spear before reanimating him as a White Walker by slowly raising his arms - just like at the massacre of Hardhome.

CERSEI LANNISTER (LENA HEADEY)

FEELGOOD VIBES She's a truly loathsome Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, so we'd be jubilant if Cersei's twin brother Jaime betrayed the love of his life and ended her reign of terror.

UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER As Cersei herself said, 'When you play the Game of Thrones you either win or you die'. Expect the master schemer to keep hold of her crown with the help of ruthless pirate Euron Greyjoy.

DAENERYS TARGARYEN (EMILIA CLARKE)

FEELGOOD VIBES The Mother of Dragons ascends the Iron Throne as ruler of Westeros and marries her lover Jon Snow (which is a bit gross actually as she's his aunt!).

UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER Daenerys perishes after being turned into human filet mignon by her own 'child', the blue-fire-breathing ice dragon Viserion.

THE HOUND (RORY MCCANN)

FEELGOOD VIBES The disfigured warrior finally gets revenge on his sadistic elder brother, The Mountain, by slaying him in Trial By Combat.

UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER Get real, Muttley! You got battered by female knight Brienne of Tarth, so what hope have you got against the murderous beast who crushes skulls for LOLs?

TYRION LANNISTER (PETER DINKLAGE)

FEELGOOD VIBES Unkindly nicknamed 'The Imp', diminutive Tyrion uses his tactical brilliance to plot an againstall-odds victory over the Army of the Dead - then retires from warfare to run all the brothels in Westeros.

UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER The Hand of the Queen is doublecrossed by his sister Cersei - who has always despised him - and his head is put on a spike at Casterly Rock.

ARYA STARK (MAISIE WILLIAMS)

FEELGOOD VIBES Wielding her trusty shortsword Needle, the tomboy assassin completes her kill list - then finds romance with her banter buddy, blacksmith Gendry.

UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER Seeking revenge is strictly against the rules of the Faceless Men, who trained Arya. She loses a duel to the death with her former mentor, Jaqen H'ghar.

CAPTION(S):

The Night King he's got his scary blue eyes on you!
