(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the series finale of “Game of Thrones,” titled “The Iron Throne.”)One week after “Game of Thrones” fans endured the bloodshed during “The Last War” between the two queens fighting for the Iron Throne — Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen — the series finale offered up even more in the way of big deaths.The 1-hour, 20-minute final episode of the HBO series’ eighth and final season claimed the life of Daenerys in a very poetic way, just before she sat on the Iron Throne.In case you forgot the lives that were lost over the show’s final six-episode run, see below for our list of every “Game of Thrones” character who died on Season 8.Also Read: 'Game of Thrones' Series Finale: 10 Biggest Questions Answered and 5 We Have LeftNed Umber How they died: Poor little Ned Umber. This guy was the first notable death of the final season and technically died twice because he was a) turned into a wight by the Night King and left at the center of a ritualistic arrangement of body parts inside the Umbers’ ancestral home, The Last Hearth, and b) killed by Beric and his trusty fire sword once the Eastwatch-Castle Black team found the boy’s reanimated corpse. The son of the late Smalljon Umber and grandson of the late Greatjon Umber, Ned is the tyke who Jon Snow entrusted with the Umbers’ property, after the Northern clan betrayed the Starks and Jon fought for Ramsay Bolton at the Battle of the Bastards. Jon was willing to forgive the family and not hold Ned accountable for their actions, letting him retain control of his home when he agreed to bend the knee.See below for how Ned died (the second time):Also Read: 'Game of Thrones' Series Finale Preview: Prepare for More Blood (Video)Random men who were guarding Yara on Euron Greyjoy’s ship (played by Rob McElhenney and Martin Starr) How they died: Arrows to the head, courtesy of Theon and his crew, who came to rescue Yara in the Season 8 premiere.

This might actually be the end of the Dothraki nation, if the post-episode featurette is telling us the truth.Theon Greyjoy How they died: Stabbed by the Night King, he gave his life to try and protect Bran Stark in the Godswood during the Battle of Winterfell.The Night King How they died: Arya stabbed him with the late Littlefinger’s Valyrian steel blade in the closing moments of Episode 803, taking out him and his entire army of White Walkers and wights in the process (including the undead Viserion!).
