For those of you who are concerned about who's going to appear in later episodes of the show and who won't, I have created this "Character appearance suggestions" chart for the purpose of predicting over who will need to appear and who I don't want to see.
For episodes that are already released:
- Y = At least one appearance where the character is the focus of a shot
- S = At least one appearance where the character is the focus of a shot, without spoken dialogue or narration
- B = Background appearance or an appearance where the character is not the focus
- M = No appearance, but a mention by name or title
- N = No appearance and no mention by name or title
For episodes that are not yet released:
- A (Appearance) = The character will or has to appear in the episode. Given by default to characters that have Y's in the regular character appearances chart before the episode's premiere.
- R (Recommendation) = Recommended, but may not be guaranteed to appear in the episode (or, not recommended, but may appear anyway). Given to characters that should appear in episodes they were not confirmed in.
- N (No appearance or recommendation) = Absolutely not recommended for appearance; I expect this character to be completely absent throughout the whole episode.
Here's the current suggestions for this season so far:
