Forget winter – the end is coming.

To the dismay of fans around the world, Game of Thrones series producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have announced that the next two seasons of the show will be its last.

Normally this would send fans into a whirlwind of worry about their favorite characters’ future and what the show holds for them. But this is Game of Thrones, and we haven’t stopped worrying since the first episode when the Starks were introduced and their happiness was brutally short-lived.

Speculation about who will sit on the Iron Throne at the culmination of the story – and who will die trying – has been rampant ever since … including within the cast itself.

When the stars of the show Lena Headey, Maisie Williams and Liam Cunningham visited Syrian refugees with the International Rescue Committee, they revealed how they’d like to see the show come to an end if they had the power in their hands.

And while Williams and Cunningham, who play Arya Stark and Ser Davos Seaworth respectively, both want their characters to find their happily ever after, Headey has a more dramatic ending in mind for her Cersei Lannister.

“I think she meets a huge, great death by Arya,” says Headey.

Williams, on the other hand, wants Arya to be happy – but not necessarily in the same way most people think.

“I’d love for her to be a bit of a lone ranger – kind of like the Hound. I don’t really want her to reunite with her family because I don’t think that they’re the same people anymore, or that she’s the same person anymore,” Williams says. “I think she’s better off on her own.”

So much for a happy family reunion!

As for Ser Davos, Cunningham has a similar end in mind, saying that he wants Davos to “die of old age” and not in a violent way.

“I don’t want a knife in the back, I don’t want him blown up with wildfire, I don’t want to be poisoned,” Cunningham says, listing a few of the deaths we’ve already seen on the often shocking show. “I think perhaps he would open a little flower shop somewhere and settle down with a lot of attractive women from Dorne with lots of Dornish wine.”
