The deaths just keep growing on Game of Thrones, and I’m not expecting the series finale to be any different. Fans are guessing wildly about who will live and who will die in the finale, and some fans are a little scared about the potential of subverted expectations. This hasn’t been an easy season for fans. That’s why we’re providing a live death update about everyone who dies in tonight’s episode.
Warning: This post will have major spoilers for Season 8 Episode 6, the finale. This post will be updated live during the show, so simply refresh to see if anyone’s died yet. The deaths will be added as they happen, so scroll to the end of the article to see the deaths that happened closest to the end of the episode. We will bold the names of those who die. After the episode is over, we will provide a summary of who died at the end of the story.
Tyrion digs through the rubble in the Red Keep, finding a hand. And he uncovers Jaime and Cersei’s bodies. Jaime and Cersei are indeed dead. The rumors Jaime might have lived were wrong.
At 32 minutes in, no one new has died yet. But we saw thousands of bodies in King’s Landing and last week’s deaths still hang heavy on the show.
And then at 40 minutes in, Jon Snow claims to be loyal to Dany but she is pushing her definition of good and so Jon kisses her and stabs her. DAENERYS IS DEAD.
And poor heartbroken Drogon shows up, losing the last of his family. He is heartbroken and grieving, nuzzling her dead body. He doesn’t kill Jon. But in a heartbroken rage he destroys the Iron Throne. The Iron Throne is destroyed.
Drogon flies away with Daenerys’ body. My heart is broken for Drogon. :(
Jon will be taking the black as punishment for killing Dany, so this kind of kills the Targaryen line too (as far as we know.)
So at 1 hour 13 in, Dany is the only one to die. There’s witty dialogue, Bran is the new King (which I was upset about at first but now it’s growing on me.)
Jon was reunited with Ghost, who is alive and well. That’s all I needed to know.
