One of the complaints that fans levelled at the first half of My Roanoke Nightmare was that we knew each of the main characters would survive, thanks to their presence in the talking heads segments of the documentary. However, now that Episode 6 has broken the fourth wall with its big twist, it seems that no one will be safe — except for one lucky soul. Although we're not sure whether we'd want to live through the horror that the cast of Season 6 have lined up for them.

Both the reenactment actors and their 'real life' counterparts don't stand a chance against the likes of the Butcher, Scáthach and Piggy Man, so it's going to be morbidly fascinating to see how one of the participants ultimately survives Return To Roanoke: 3 Days In Hell.

Rory was the first to go, truly putting the 'R' in 'MURDER', but Evan Peters's second character won't be the last to suffer a grisly demise. Join us as we count down each of the show's participants, placing bets on who we think will die like an especially morbid round of Cluedo.

Cuba Gooding Jr. as Dominic Banks — DEAD

'Chapter 7' confirmed our suspicions about Dominic Banks — namely that he's a giant douchebag. After he had a hand in breaking up Shelby and Matt's marriage, Banks reveals that he sees himself as the bad guy on the show, which is why his character had to die. There's no way that Murphy will let such an arrogant, unlikeable character live for long.

"Do you know what I like about reality TV? The bad guy's always the lead in every show."

In 'Chapter 8', Dominic finally met his fate at the hands of the Piggy Man, after his fellow survivors blamed him for the death of Shelby.

Odds of surviving: DEAD

Cheyenne Jackson as Sidney Aaron James — DEAD

Jackson's TV producer is another extremely irritating character who's been deliberately portrayed in an obnoxious light. If anything, one could argue that Sidney was the real villain this season, selfishly putting everyone in danger in the first place, so it's a shame that the fake Butcher killed him off near the beginning of Chapter 7.

Odds of surviving: DEAD

Sarah Paulson as Audrey Tindall — ALIVE

Sarah Paulson's second character this season, Audrey Tindall, suffered the tragic loss of her husband, Rory, after just one episode. At first, it seemed as though the trauma of this loss would weaken her resolve, but Audrey has since stepped up as one of the strongest survivors. Now that we're down to a final three, Paulson's latest character could very well make it to the end, although she may not live long enough to meet Lana Winters, another character of Paulson's who will return this season.

Odds of surviving: 25:1

André Holland as Matt Miller — DEAD

Whether the witchy Scáthach was impregnated by Matt Miller or not during their hypnotic rendezvous, her hold over Shelby's husband remained long after their consummation. However, it still came as a surprise when we learned that the only reason Matt had returned to the house was to be reunited with Scáthach. Unfortunately, the adorably romantic pair didn't stay together for long; they quickly shacked up in the basement before Shelby discovered them and bludgeoned Matt to death, Negan style. However, there's still a chance that Matt's spirit could live on in whatever hellish demonic baby flies out of Scáthach's vagina.

Odds of surviving: DEAD

Angela Bassett as Monet Tumusiime — ALIVE

While we don't know much about Basset's character, aside from how easily she turns to alcoholism, Monet has proven herself as a rather fiery and capable character. While this could certainly push her forward as a potential 'final girl', her weakness for booze may ultimately prove to be her undoing. However, now that she's among the final three survivors, Monet could very well make it to the finish line.

Odds of surviving: 5:1

Adina Porter as Lee Harris — ALIVE

Lee Harris may have been an alcoholic in the past too, but Porter's character has more to live for, especially now that her daughter no longer has a father. It also doesn't hurt that Harris is a former policewoman who's more used to defending herself than any of the other participants on the show. Could we see a dramatic ending where Porter's character is blamed for the deaths of everyone else on set? After all, Harris has already admitted that she's responsible for the death of her husband.

Odds of surviving: 3:1

Lily Rabe as Shelby Miller — DEAD

At first, it seemed as though Shelby Miller could go the distance and become the 'final girl'. After all, Lily Rabe's character surprised us all by bludgeoning her husband Matt to death in a fit of rage, so we know that there's far more to her than meets the eye. However, things took a turn for the worse when Shelby proved herself incapable of dealing with the guilt and decided to take her own life in Chapter 8. Whether we see the poor girl return as a spirit or whether she's done for good, Rabe's now out of the running in survival terms.

While the title card ominously implies that only one of the participants we've already met will survive their stay, there's a few other actors whose 'real life' counterparts are currently unaccounted for, including;

  • Denis O'Hare
  • Lady Gaga
  • Leslie Jordan
  • Saniyya Sidney

On top of all that, there's also the likes of Matt Bomer and Taissa Farmiga, who are also set to play a larger role in future episodes of Season 6.
