Character Deaths

Gared 

One of the Night’s Watchman that was out ranging North of the Wall and wound up getting devoured by wights.

Will 

Way back in the pilot, we all felt kind of bad for this Night’s Watch deserter, because we knew that he really had seen the White Walkers. I bet they wish they’d listened to him now…

  • Cause of death: Ned Stark beheaded him.
  • Sadness ranking: 3. We barely knew him and barely remember him, but he sent an important message and didn’t deserve to die for it.

Jon Arryn 

We never got to know Jon Arryn, since he was already dead when the show started. But we did get to see his dead body. He was the Hand of the King to Robert Baratheon before Ned Stark, and also Ned’s guardian. He was married to Catelyn’s sister, Lysa.

  • Cause of death: Poisoned by SPOILER ALERT and SPOILER ALERT
  • Sadness ranking: 4. We never see him alive or even see his real eyes, but he seemed like a nice enough guy who was trying to reveal Cersei and Jaime’s little secret and protect the realm.
