Who dies in the Battle of Winterfell? Game of Thrones fans are devastated

THE final series of Game of Thrones kicked off its exhilarating battle scene against the Night King on Sunday, and it goes without saying that things turned rather bloody.

In episode 3, Starks and many others face off with the fearful villain and his powerful Army of the Dead, but who didn’t survive the fight? Find out below…

The Night King

It would seem rather surprising that the Night King would be killed off during the episode – especially when considering how powerful he’s known to be.

But apparently, the Valyrian dagger – which was once meant to kill Bran Stark – in the hands of Arya Stark was strong enough to stab the antagonist in the gut and ultimately wipe him out.

Interestingly enough, with the Night Walker being wiped out, so was his growing White Walker army.
Viserion, the Wights and all the other White Walkers also died.

Eddison Tollett

Eddison is the first to die in the episode amid the battle against the White Walkers, marking it as their first major assault on the forces of the living.

After rescuing Samwell Tarly, Eddison is abruptly stabbed from behind in a scene which strongly correlates to the death of Pyp during the Castle Black battle in the fourth series of the show.

Still, Eddison’s death may not be the most surprising of them all.

Beric Dondarrion

Given that he has died plenty of times in the past, the Lighting Lord certainly wasn’t going to survive this intense bloodbath, and that became very obvious in the attempt to save Arya Stark.

While leading Clegane on a mission to rescue her, Berie shows great courage as he rallies courage in the Hound.

His strength throughout the battle doesn’t go unnoticed, but everything appears to have come to a halt when Beric is forced to make the decision of sacrificing his own life to save Arya.

"The Lord brought him back for a purpose," Melisandre (Carice Van Houten) tells Arya when Beric passes. "Now? That purpose has been served."

Lyanna Mormont

Lyanna Mormont, the Lady of Bear, made sure to leave quite the impression, having refused to back down when she’s confronted by an undead giant when it bashes through Winterfell.

Lyanna took an awful lot of beatings in the episode.

In one particular scene, she’s pushed out of the way but doesn’t hesitate to get back onto her feet and fighting back.

She stands up and makes the giant her main target as she paces towards his way.

It manages to grab her and lifts her high up in the air, but foolishly allowing Lyanna to get close enough so that she can stab a dragonglass dagger through her opponent’s eye.

Jorah Mormont

Jorah showed his true strength while attempting to protect Daenerys Targaryen in the midst of being surrounded by wights.

The climactic scene intensifies as Jorah struggles to defend himself and consequently finds himself stabbed repeatedly.

The fighter that he is, Jorah pushes through and continues to fight right until he reaches his bitter end, but to say that he put on an impressive battle would be an understatement.

Theon Greyjoy

Theon showed little signs that he was afraid to take on the biggest and most fearful villain that we’ve been introduced to.

While he stuck to his word by taking on the Night Walker, it seemed evidently clear that Theon didn’t stand a chance.

It resulted in a quick wipeout for Theon, who, at the very least, did his best to fight against the Night King and his army.


Melisandre, the Red Woman, probably became one of the most important characters in the episode.

She arrives at Winterfell before the battle commenced, giving her enough time to arm everyone with fire while seemingly helping Arya in killing the Night King.

When it’s all over, Melisandre collapses right outside the gates of Winterfell == the tortuous and devastating battle had finally come to an end.

Game of Thrones continues every Monday at 2am.

Alternatively, fans can watch the episode at 9pm when it airs for a second time on the TV station.
