Game of Thrones Season 8: An Up-to-Date Tally of the Living and the Dead

Game of Thrones Characters Alive Dead Season 8 Episode 3

Game of Thrones might have lulled us into a false sense of security by failing to kill off any major characters in the first two episodes of its final season. But the Grim Reaper really made up for it on Sunday: The Battle of Winterfell took out a whole bunch of characters, including some who’ve been part of the series since its start.

To help you keep track of who’s still among the living — versus who’s now headed to that Iron Throne in the sky — we’ve assembled this handy list of the major players still drawing breath in Westeros and beyond. (And yes, we know that the Night King and the frozen version of Viserion weren’t actually alive, but c’mon.)

We’ll update the gallery at right after every single final season episode. If you don’t see a skull in the photo, you can assume that that character can rest easy… for now. (And for a detailed recap of Episode 3, go here.)

Click on the gallery — or go to it directly here — then bookmark it and make sure to check back after each new Thrones installment. And may the Lord of Light warm us all!
