‘Game Of Thrones’: Who Died During The Last War?

Game of Thrones

The penultimate episode of the final season of Game of Thrones saw several main characters from the series meet their long-awaited demise. Spoiler warning!

Before Daenerys Targaryen could even make her way to King’s Landing, the dragon mother learned of Lord Varys’ betrayal and newfound loyalty to Jon Snow, resulting in the Master of Whisperer’s execution. Daenerys sentenced Varys to death and he was burnt alive by the Queen’s last living dragon Drogon.

Euron Greyjoy somehow managed to survive the destruction of the Iron Fleet after Daenerys single-handedly wiped out the armada along with the capital’s defenses but it wasn’t for long. Euron made his way to shore, only to end up in a confrontation with Jaime Lannister, leading to his death at the hands of the King Slayer. The King of the Iron Island did however severely injure Jaime, stabbing him twice with his dagger.

The Cleganebowl. Ser Gregor Clegane and Sandor Clegane finally came face to face again as Cersei attempted her escape. After letting Cersei pass on the staircase, The Hound dueled to the death against his brother The Mountain. The Hound ultimately sacrificed himself in order to kill The Mountain when he tackled his brother out of the collapsing staircase, sending the two tumbling to their deaths together in the fiery depths of the city below.

Lastly, both Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister met their end. As Jaime attempted to lead Cersei out of the city, they became trapped in the cellars of the Red Keep. With no way out and nowhere to go, Jaime held Cersei in an embrace as the cellar collapsed on top of them.
