Here’s Who Dies In “Game Of Thrones” S8, According To Data Science

What: An algorithm that predicts the deaths in HBO’s eighth season of Game of Thrones. Who: Taylor Larkin, a data scientist for DataRobot.Why we care: Nobody was prepared for it when Ned Stark (Sean Bean) literally lost his head in the first season of Game of Thrones.

(Well, nobody except for the thousands who’d actually read the books and were actively anticipating what face you’d make when you watched that shocking execution.) Ned had been set up as the moral center of the series. His death was a shot across the audience’s bow, signaling that no character was safe. Valar morghulis, etc., ad infinitum.
