Warning: This post contains spoilers for all seven seasons of Game of Thrones.

Plenty of people have lost their lives on Game of Thrones, and most have met a violent end. While this list doesn’t record every named soldier who’s had his throat slit, it is a comprehensive account (in chronological order) of now deceased characters who had some major impact on the plot. You’ll be surprised how many you’ve already forgotten.

Inspired by Jon Snow’s resurrection, we’ve also tried to determine the likelihood of these characters returning to the show. Of course, any unburned body could turn into a White Walker, but we assume those in the Seven Kingdoms will quickly learn to dispose of their corpses.

This list was compiled based on events on the Game of Thrones TV show, not on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series upon which the HBO show is based.
