As game of Thrones periods go, this seventh and also penultimate season the HBO"s epic, didn"t have too high a human body count. Motivated by George RR Martin, and also the viewpoint of a Dothraki wedding (it isn"t a effective celebration uneven at least three civilization are killed), showrunners DB Weiss and also David Benioff haven"t shied far from bloody endings for even the many beloved the characters. In season 7, however, the bloodletting was almost civilised through GoT standards: no one had actually boiling yellow poured over your heads, or acquired stabbed in the eyes, or obtained torn to piece by dogs, or got a chestful the stab wounds from civilization they considered allies.

Still, there to be a few notable deaths in season 7. While us feel deeply because that the numerous unnamed extras who dropped by the wayside at the battles at Tumbleton, Casterly Rock, Highgarden and also beyond the Wall, no to mention, at sea, we"re restricting ourselves to the pivotal characters.

Valar Morghulis!

1. Every critical Frey in Westeros — death by feasting

At the end of Game that Thrones season 6, we observed Arya serve Lord Walder Frey a pie (into which his own sons were baked) before she dispatched him come the side of the dead. In a goosebumps-inducing moment at the really beginning of season 7, she finishes what she began — vengeance for the Red Wedding. Raking on the face of Walder Frey, she calls all the Freys together for a feast, and also when they"re in a celebratory mood, offer them poisoned wine. As they splutter, choke and also then drop to the floor, Arya speak a single survivor: "When lock ask girlfriend what happened here, tell lock — the north remembers". Touche!

2. Ellaria Sand — death by rotting in a dungeon

We weren"t dreadful fond that Ellaria Sand, however the poor lady didn"t even get the dignity the a spectacular death. Caught by Euron Greyjoy and delivered to Cersei, Ellaria had to watch while Cersei (in a move completely inspired through Ellaria"s poisoning that Myrcella Baratheon) kissed the youngest Sand snake Tyene with poisoned lips and also then left mom chained the contrary daughter, to watch she die.

3. All three Sandsnakes — death by Euron Greyjoy

Well Tyene was really killed by Cersei and also poison, yet her fate was pretty lot sealed when Euron Greyjoy took she captive. Together for the various other Sand Snakes, Nymeria and Obara die fighting Euron.

The cool old Tyrell matriarch lorded the over much less sharp Westerosi for number of seasons. Yet her regime ends when Jaime annexes Highgarden. Having lost her entire family in the explosion at the Sept of Baelor, Olenna takes the dignified route readily available by Jaime — a poisoned goblet of alcohol — before shooting her final salvo in ~ him: the revelation that she eliminated Joffrey.

5. Lord Randall Tarly, Dickon Tarly — death through roasting in dragonfire

Dickon Tarly briefly took pleasure in some fame as a Westerosi hunk, who likewise saved Jaime during the fight of Tumbleton. As soon as Dany asks the survivors of that battle to bend the knee or forfeit your lives, the Tarlys — father and also son — refuse. We didn"t shed any kind of tears because that the hard-as-nails mr Randall Tarly (after the method he treated Sam, we had no sympathy for him) but poor, green Dickon possibly deserved a fate far better than being burned to a crisp. The Tarlys carry out die bravely, hold hands together they face Drogon, prior to being diminished to a tiny pile of ash.

6. Viserion — death through well-thrown spear

Ah Viserion, girlfriend fine dragon you. You served the reason of Dany well, prior to you fell. As soon as the Night King sets his eyes on Viserion though, the dragon is a lost cause. One mighty spear thrown come his side and Viserion tumbles down to the earth, streaming blood and fire, and also slowly sinking below the ice. The Night King go resurrect him, therefore Viserion currently occupies the weird realm of the wade (or in his case, the flying) dead.

7. Thoros — death through expedience

With an exploration planned beyond the wall surface to catch a wight, you understand the Fellowship that the King to be doomed come return brief a member or two. And also while we had a quick moment that panic, reasoning it would certainly be Tormund who"d dice (what, no happily ever after through Brienne for mr Giantsbane?!) it to be Thoros of Myr that was the single casualty. First, he obtained mauled Revenant-style by a giant wight bear. Then, the froze to fatality as the Fellowship was besieged by the army of the dead. Farewell, priest.

8. Benjen distinct — death by heroics

What is it with Stark men and taking misguided (if heroic) stands versus a exceptional enemy? as Jon is almost attacked by wights, Uncle Benjy comes riding in ~ above his destrier, sends out Jon to safety and then takes down a few of the dead before being brought down himself.

Through a tiny help from Bran, Arya and Sansa room able to rotate the tables on mr Baelish, and also his life — and every one of his plottings — end top top the floor that Winterfell"s good hall, as he bleeds progressively to death.
