There was a deleted scene where Varys tells Baelish "...the curse does frighten me. Did you know every house that has a misfortune of holding Harrenhal has died out?"
My tinfoil is that this isn't only exclusive to those who were holding the fortress nor who became Lord of Harrenhal, but to every character who had ever stepped inside the castle will die (before the series ends). That means [spoilers] Jaime Lannister will be next.
Arya, Hot Pie, and Gendry are safe because they were all paid by Jaqen's, Rorge's, and Biter's life. The death of Tickler, Amory Lorch, and the guards could also be the "death (debt) that was paid," but they were a red herring; they were all destined to die, whether Jaqen kills them or not. Whereas Jaqen and company were not supposed to be in Harrenhal in the first place if not for Arya saving them.
Jaqen, Rorge, and Biter were the key in saving Arya and her friends' lives. The three men in the cage were temporarily saved by Arya, and in order for their death to be re-paid, she picked Tickler, Amory Lorch, and Jaqen (Arya wanted the guards but Jaqen claimed it must be one name, and she did; she named him first), but despite that they (Jaqen, Rorge, Biter) all died anyway and it luckily re-paid for Arya, Hot Pie, and Gendry's life.
And what about Brienne? Well, she could die beside Jaime ("In the arms of the woman I love"), or she might be safe because of Roose's guest right- "You're now under my protection." Locke ignored this, unfortunately, but she was later saved by Jaime in the bear pit. Meaning Jaime's death, who is already cursed even if she had not saved Brienne, will be paid again for Brienne's life (or it could be Jaime's new unborn child with Cersei that will be paid). Just like Qyburn's life was saved by Talisa and was later re-paid by the death of her unborn baby. (As for The Mountain, he is already *technically* dead but Qyburn raised him from the dead.)
Edit: Bronn did save Jaime's life in Spoils of War. Which means... Hmm. Nope, it still stands. Remember, Jaime also saved Brienne's life in the bear pit. Double curse. He is definitely dead in the final season. (As for Bronn, it doesn't matter-he was never inside Harrenhal. He will live, I think.) - 8/20/18
