What an episode! After arguably the greatest battle ever on Game of Thrones, there are loads of questions that need answering - like who actually survived the Battle of Winterfell, and who died fighting the dead? Here's a list of every character who died in season 8, episode 3: The Night King The most important death of them all - RIP Night King!

Cue Tormund's ferocious milk-chugging, an act of horror that goes on for so much longer than anyone would ever reasonably expect.

It's enough to prompt the otherwise sober Davos Seaworth into indulging in a drink after all — and in the world outside … [Read more...] about ‘Game of Thrones’: Kristofer Hivju Spills the Final Season Battle Milk

In every Final Path, The Hollywood Reporter's resident Westeros expert Josh Wigler will offer a character-by-character deep dive of their journey through seven seasons, as well as what can be expected in the upcoming eighth and final season.
