I expect between now and mid-October more provocations from North Korea followed by tough language from the US and allies in the region. Harsh condemnations from the international community, joint military drills and nothing significant will actually happen.
There is NO viable military option on North Korea, unless they actually attack leaving no other option but to respond militarily it is going to be this way for a long time.
SEVERAL North Korean missiles were recently spotted moved from a rocket facility in the capital Pyongyang, South Korea’s Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) reported late on Friday.
The report cited an unnamed intelligence source saying South Korean and US intelligence detected missiles being transported away from North Korea’s Missile Research and Development Facility at Sanum-dong in the northern part of Pyongyang.
The missiles could be either intermediate range Hwasong-12 or intercontinental ballistic Hwasong-14 missiles, according to the report, though the missile facility at Sanum-dong has been dedicated to the production of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
South Korean officials have voiced concerns that North Korea could conduct more provocative acts near the anniversary of the founding of its communist party on October 10, or possibly when China holds its Communist Party Congress on October 18th.

What about a single BIG BANG that sends him to where his Father and Grandfather are?

In order to drastically increase the likelihood of surviving a nuclear attack, live away from areas that provide targets of opportunity or strategic value. These areas include: strategic missile sites and military bases, government centers like Washington, DC and capitals, transportation hubs and communication centers.

I'm going out on a limb and calling it now.
When the Chinese Communist Party convenes on October 18th for it's People's Congress to reelect President and Censor-in-chief Xi Jinping, DPRK will launch a missile at someone (maybe Guam), the US WILL SHOOT it down claiming it was aimed at (insert name here) and then launch a retaliatory strike. China will not be able to effectively or quickly respond while such a large transfer of power is happening (complete replacement of politburo is likely during this congress).
