No doubt everyone here is very familiar with the 'vague and comes true in a way we don't expect' prophecy, and even the 'fairly precise but with just enough wiggle room for misinterpretation' prophecy. If the prediction was anything remotely similar to vague, we wouldn't be misled with her. If it didn't include a word like croak or kill, people would be all over it. Even 'destroy' would likely throw up a big flag for everyone to think that Jillian would simply ruin the side but leave Olive alive or something.
Sadly as much as it would be a real bait and switch, I don't think Rob could get away with misleading people about the prediction without having Wanda give her interpretation as fact.
I do agree with you though, that we've not seen vague predictions, at least not in what will happen. The how is always vague, but the what never is. Wanda didn't get away with some little 'serve olive for a turn, then run away' or anything like that. She didn't serve her tea or some other silly thing to satisfy the wording if not the seeming intent. No, she has served under Olive for... what? Hundreds of turns at least.
So, yeah, I truly don't see Olive surviving. I admit though, since Rob is apparently only 1/3rd of the way through, it may not happen for a while, but I'd put my quatloo on her being croaked within the next turn or so here.
