There are more extensive lists recording every single character who died (174, 373 to be exact), down to their minute stamp, but you don’t want to scroll through all that, do you? Probably not. You want to know the important people who died and which episode they did so you can proudly fact check everyone else and impress them with your knowledge. Nerd.
Well, we did the groundwork for you so you don’t have to. We’re feeling extra generous too, so you get the method of death together with the murderer. Here are the results from the finale episode poll. See all the pivotal moments of the show here.
