1. Jon Snow
Come on now, he HAS to be alive doesn't he? Or at least he has to be revivable... right? If that is the case, the very fact that he may draw another breath makes Jon Snow (and his fans) the biggest winners possible this season.
There's way too much of a weight of evidence to suggest that Snow will return to ignore. There's the vagueness of the book (which they surely won't entirely ignore), plus the rumour that Thoros is about to return (with his handy death beating magic) and the pertinence of the R+l=J theory. It all adds up to the Bastard of Winterfell rising to fight for his family home.
Hopefully that will mean we'll see Jon and Ramsay Bolton facing off on the fields outside of the Northern stronghold and a victory for the Stark bannermen. And if that truly does come to pass, we can probably also expect Jon's weight to be thrown behind whoever emerges victorious in the battle for the Iron Throne.
