List Rules Vote up the characters most likely to defend Daenerys.

Editor's Note: Voting has been closed.

With Daenerys Targaryen losing touch with her empathetic side and slaughtering millions of innocents at King's Landing, it seems all but certain that Jon Snow, AKA Aegon Targaryen, will go to battle with his aunt/former lover. But while Jon certainly won't be the only character to defy the Mother of Dragons, others will remain loyal to Dany and will continue to fight for her. 

Who among them will stay by Daenerys's side and protect her place on the Iron Throne?

1

Grey Worm is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Perhaps the only character left in the series whose anger matches that of Daenerys, Grey Worm proved he was out for blood in "The Bells." His loyalty to Dany throughout the series has been fierce, and there's no indication it will falter now.

2
404 884
Yara Greyjoy is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Yara reclaimed the Iron Islands in Daenerys's name and, as far as the audience is aware, knows nothing of her queen's "mad" ways. Her allegiance to Dany may remain firmly in place.

3

Bronn is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Bronn only aligns himself with those who can empower him, and given that Dany is now the most powerful woman in Westeros, remaining on her good side would likely be in his best interest.

4

Gendry is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Although Gendry loves Arya and thus seems likely to support the Starks in their campaign to put Jon on the throne, he is also grateful to Daenerys for making him a legitimate Baratheon and giving him lordship over Storm's End. Given this, as well as Arya's rejection of his marriage proposal, Gendry may not be inclined to align with the Starks.

Tyrion Lannister is listed (or ranked) 5 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

While Tyrion's actions in "The Bells" were seditious, he also seemed prepared to give his life for peace in King's Landing. His heart may be broken over Dany's decision to sack the city, but he may remain loyal in the end, if only to dissuade her from harming any more innocents.

Davos Seaworth is listed (or ranked) 6 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

As Dany laid waste to King's Landing, Davos shared a look with Jon indicating his shock and horror at their queen's actions. But will this sense of horror be enough to convince Davos to turn against Daenerys? He is a man of his word, after all.

Bran Stark is listed (or ranked) 7 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Bran's motivations since becoming the Three-Eyed Raven have been murky, at best. Has he been playing some game all along in the interest of keeping Dany on the Iron Throne?

8
21 1,171
Tormund Giantsbane is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Tormund is a clear ally of Jon Snow, but he's also the de facto leader of the Free Folk, who have absolutely no stake in who sits on the Iron Throne. His only object is to protect his people, and if Jon's quest to rule somehow threatens the Free Folk, Tormund might dismiss all previous loyalties.

Sansa Stark is listed (or ranked) 9 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

For all intents and purposes, Sansa is the last person likely to align herself with the Mother of Dragons - unless, that is, said alignment is a part of her grander scheme. Might Sansa pretend to support Dany only to stab her in the back later?

10
21 1,189
Arya Stark is listed (or ranked) 10 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

In all likelihood, Arya has a new name on her list of targets: Daenerys Targaryen. But as we've seen before, her list isn't set in stone, and she often erases the names of those who gain her trust. Might Dany be able to sway Westeros's most stealthy executioner over to her side?

11
19 1,169
Brienne of Tarth is listed (or ranked) 11 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

It would take a lot to convince Brienne to abaondon her guardianship of Sansa and Arya, but as we know, Sansa is capable of a lot, and then some. Would Sansa's manipulative actions drive the newly knighted Brienne away, so much so that she aligns herself with the Starks' enemy?

12

Podrick Payne is listed (or ranked) 12 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Where Brienne goes, Podrick follows - if Brienne decides to fight for Dany, Podrick likely will, too. Of course, he also may reveal his own personal loyalties and decide to turn against his liege, Brienne, as well as the Starks.

Samwell Tarly is listed (or ranked) 13 on the list Who Will Fight Alongside Daenerys On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Perhaps an even less likely candidate for Team Dany than Sansa, Samwell - if he feels cornered - will do what is necessary to protecet those he loves, especially if the lives of Gilly, little Sam, and his unborn child are at stake.
