Twitter is convinced that Brienne is going to die in next week's 'Game of Thrones'

Yes, I am also beside myself at the fact that we only have four episodes of Game of Thrones left, but it looks like we may have to prepare ourselves for even more bad news.

Namely, the people of the internet are convinced that one of our favourite characters - Brienne of Tarth - is going to die in next week's episode. Quelle horreur.

To recap last Sunday's episode, Brienne finally became a Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, and her joy was palpable. But as many on Twitter were quick to point out, the characters on GoT pay a heavy price for even the most meagre moments of joy, and so have been speculating that Brienne's great victory may culminate in an untimely demise.

"I’m so happy for my shooter Brienne for finally getting the Knight ranking she deserves. It’s all she ever wanted. The smile on her face was so pure and joyous. She’s definitely bout to die," asserted one social media user, while another corroborated "It’s almost like her character arc is complete...You know what happens next right?"

It should also be noted that Brienne has the most dramatic scene in the teaser for next week's episode, shouting ""Stand your ground!" to the army at Winterfell in the last moments of the trailer.

See if you can spot the clues in the chilling teaser for episode three: 

Next week's episode will document the Battle of Winterfell, with the Army of the Living taking on the Night King's Army of the Dead, so it's best to prepare for not one, but lots of casualties...
