I do think we're to a point where they can't pull too many surprises. The characters that have survived all the way from the first episode are too iconic to be dispatched easily. Sure, we won't mind if Cersei or Jaime off one another, but let's say the script calls for the ships to land at King's Landing amid quiet fog... a small team of Dothraki carrying a litter... then Dany, corpse-thin, opening her eyes to look at Westeros shortly before dying from complications of sea sickness :p See? They can't do that. The number of true surprises they can pull are very few at this point.
