Who Died Tonight On 'Game of Thrones'? List of Dead Characters After The Battle of Winterfell

After seasons of anticipation, Game of Thrones fans finally witnessed the dead fall on Winterfell in Sunday night's episode of the fantasy series. As expected, the army of the dead took a toll on the living tonight, though fewer lead-character deaths were presented than many fans expected.

Who Died On Game Of Thrones Tonight?

  • 'Dolorous' Edd Tollett
  • Lyanna Mormont
  • Beric Dondarrion
  • Theon Greyjoy
  • Ser Jorah Mormont
  • Melisandre, The Red Witch
  • The Night King
  • All The White Walkers

Edd Tollett, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, was the first to die in the 80-minute long episode at the hand of a White Walker. His death was followed by that of Lyanna Mormont, who, at the time of her death, killed a giant White Walker by stabbing him in the eye. She was too late to save her own life, though. The two were shown coming back to life as White Walkers later in the battle, when the Night King revived the newly dead as members of his army.

Beric Dondarrion died protecting Arya Stark from a slew of White Walkers. The three first deaths were some of the fastest, with little time for fans to mourn the losses.

Theon Greyjoy was one of the first leading-character deaths in Season 8 when he heroically died trying to kill the Night King in a last-ditch effort to protect Bran Stark. At the time of his death, Greyjoy was the only person left protecting the disabled Stark, who seemed unable to protect himself.

As the battle came to a close, at the hand of Arya Stark who ultimately slayed the Night King and, in turn, the entire army of the dead, Jorah Mormont fell to his death. He stuck through the battle to protect his Queen, Daenerys Stormborn, who was dragonless and left to fight the battle with a sword. The pair had an emotional goodbye as Jorah died in the Queen's arms.

The episode concluded with the Red Witch seemingly deciding to die after she played a role in the battle. She removed her magic necklace, which fans of the show knew kept her youthful, and walked into the snow alone, where she met her end. Some may remember in seaon 7, she told Vaerys she was destined to die in Westeros. And said he was too.
