So, Game of Thrones season 8 has come and gone and we will never be same. The last season sparked a ton of controversy online, even a petition with more than 1 million signatures for the season to be redone.

I, for one, loved season eight. It’s not what I expected and possibly not even what I wanted. But to paraphrase Bran, all the remaining characters are exactly where they need to be.

If anything, I’m upset about all the loose ends that were never tied up, but perhaps those issues will be addressed in spin-off shows. We live in hope.

Season 8

Ah, up to date we are. While the showrunners warned us that plenty main characters would die during the Battle of Winterfell, there are a handful of fans of still believe they were being kind to us.

Most of my favourites made it. Personally, I think Missandei’s death was one of the most shocking. She and Grey Worm still had plans to return to Naath one day when all the wars were over.

The total number of deaths on Game of Thrones are staggering. From main characters – RIP Ned and practically everybody else – to characters whom you’d miss if you blink.

Not to mention the thousands upon thousands of extras used for the major battles. The thousands of unnamed wildlings, wights and soldiers. We’ve compiled a list of the most notable character deaths from seasons 1 to 7 as well.
