After Game of Thrones' recent Red Wedding massacre, competition for the Iron Throne just got fiercer.

Who's left to fight the good fight? And will one of our heroes actually declare victory? Only George R.R. Martin, who wrote the books on which the HBO series is based, truly knows which of his characters, if any, will indeed sit upon that bloody, uncomfortable throne when his seven-book series is completed. But until then, we can catch the season finale Sunday (9/8c, HBO) and debate the leadership potential of who's left alive (RIP, Robb Stark!).
