**SPOILERS** to follow, obviously...
Mortality hovers over Game of Thrones like an ominous storm cloud. Westeros is no picnic. George R.R. Martin's epic fantasy series is set in a medieval kind of world where lives end prematurely on the regular. Watching the series, one never wants to get attached to any one character. They could be dead in an instant.
It's the death rate on Game of Thrones that elevates the urgency of the drama onscreen. In short, it's a big part of what makes it great. There's never been TV show like it. From the deaths of Ned Stark and Khal Drogo in Season 1 to the Invasion of King's Landing in Season 8, Game of Thrones keeps everyone on their toes — cast and audience alike.
In an effort to keep track of the many major deaths on Game of Thrones, as well as all the deaths that occur in Season 8, we've put together a Game of Thrones Death List for your viewing pleasure. The sheer amount of goners on the show is staggering in visual form (and we didn't even include everyone).
The eighth and final season of GoT ends May 19. Over the next six weeks, we'll update our Death List to keep audiences up to speed and visually display the mass carnage on the show. Check back with us for an update each Monday. For now, behold! The Game of Thrones Death List has arrived!
