Sunday is coming ... and so are the spoilers? Yes, the Sunday we've all been waiting for is finally upon us.

The hit series "Game of Thrones" sixth season is set to debut on HBO Sunday night and we may finally get to see if (spoiler alert!!) Jon Snow survives the barrage of blades that befell him at the end of season 5.

Snow's death was one of many in the 5th season, and I'm willing to bet that quite a few more characters will meet their end in season 6. But who? The show's storylines have now surpassed the books, so there's no telling who could get the ax next.

Or is there? Researchers at the Technical University of Munich have developed mathematical algorithms to predict who will be the next character to die.

The study, brilliantly named "A Song of Ice and Data," analyzes data from the books, the TV series, Twitter, and the fan-based Wiki, "A Fire and Ice" to try and make its predictions.

Of course, the show hasn't aired yet and the books have yet to be written, but the site is done in good fun. It's also doesn't tell you how a character will die, but rather the percentage of them being next in line.

For example (and fans of the show will see the problem) Tommen Baratheon is most likely to die next at 97%, followed by the already deceased Stannis Baratheon at 96%. Fans might not like to see the next one: Danerys Targaryen at 95%.

You can also see which house is the most dangerous and rank survivors. It's a great tool for a quick refresher before the season premiere tomorrow night!
