Game of Thrones is used to switching things around and often bringing people back to life.
Most famously, Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) was resurrected in season six when he was brutally murdered by Night’s Watch dissenters.
However, this had a clear purpose in the plot and it proved Jon was destined for bigger and better things.
But since this science (or religion) has worked once, does this mean it will happen again?
Many are hoping to see Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) back on screens following his death in season seven.
The scheming character – also known as Petyr Baelish – went too far with his evil ways and met the wrong end of Arya Stark’s (Maisie Williams) fury and she killed her off.
Now, William Hill has announced odds for who will rule the Seven Kingdoms at the end of Game of Thrones season 8 and fans will be very surprised to see incredibly short odds for Littlefinger.
Petyr is currently priced at 8/1 after he found his odds slashed from 50/1.
However, this would of course mean he would have to be resurrected as viewers are fairly convinced the schemer is definitely dead.
It could happen, but would Game of Thrones really bring someone back to life so late in the show?
What’s more, Littlefinger is by no means the favourite to take the Iron Throne, with Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) the current leader with odds of 4/5.
He is closely followed by his sister, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) who is priced at 5/1.
Fan-favourite Jon comes in third at 7/1 with Gendry priced at 8/1.
After Littlefinger, the likes of Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) appear, and are both at 10/1.
It’s bad news for Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Varys (Conleth Hill) and Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) who are at the bottom of the pile at 40/1, 66/1 and 100/1, respectively.
Earlier today, Maisie Williams appeared on Lorraine and could have potentially confirmed a devastating death.
The Arya Stark star was tasked with taking on a quiz and she was asked by Christine Lampard how many Direwolves are alive at the end of season seven.
Maisie pondered: “Just the – No! There’s two alive.”
Did her stumble confirm one of the little pups will perish in season eight?
Game of Thrones season eight premieres on April 14 on HBO and Sky Atlantic and on NOW TV on April 15.
