The Season 5 finale of “Game of Thrones” left so many characters in peril, it’s hard to figure out which ones are dead, maybe dead and absolutely alive. Probably.
Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) was stabbed to death by the Night’s Watch, Myrcella (Aimee Richardson) collapsed after being poisoned by Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma), Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Theon (Alfie Allen) jumped off the parapets of Winterfell, Stannis (Stephen Dillane) met the business end of Brienne’s (Gwendoline Christie) sword, and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) found herself surrounded by a Dothraki hoard.
Some of these characters fates are still ambiguous, but thanks to some new photos from Season 6, fans can stop agonizing over at least a few of them.
Sansa and Theon appear to have escaped Winterfell mostly unharmed — thank goodness for soft snow? — and Daenerys doesn’t look any worse for the wear yet.
Sadly, it seems Myrcella’s poisoning was legitimately fatal, since these photos show Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) returning with her body and King Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman) mourning over his sister’s corpse.
Jon Snow is still unsurprisingly absent from these sneak peek photos, so his fate is definitely still questionable. Though, be honest, the chances he’s actually dead are very slim. Stannis, too, is missing, but that’s more of a confirmation than anything that Brienne finished the job and killed the would-be king.
