Another episode of Game of Thrones has aired, did anyone die in episode 2? Let’s check our death toll!

Stop: Spoiler alert! There are obviously huge spoilers ahead if you missed Season 8, Episode 2 of Game of Thrones.

Though the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones wasted no time getting into things, no name characters died. There were a lot of reunions for sure. More than we ever imagined a single episode would feature. There was Jon Snow and Bran, Daenerys met Sansa, and, gasp — Bran and Jaime! But, surprisingly, no deaths. I mean, with a six episode season, you would think the bloodshed would begin right away.

Episode 2 would surely bring death, right? Or so we thought! Shockingly, in Season 8, Episode 2 there are also no deaths. However, this episode was pretty amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better episode to set up Episode 3, next week will feature a lot of action.

Jon Snow’s big secret is out. Not only does he know, but he has shared the news with Daenerys already. They didn’t have much time to discuss it, there really isn’t much time for anything with the dead now here. But her reaction wasn’t as terrible as I imagined it would be!

Another thing we loved is the reunion we didn’t know we needed: Sansa and Theon. Hearts and tears all around. Speaking of hearts, we are simply loving the teamwork between everyone! This is how you get things done, people!

If you’re disappointed no character died tonight, don’t be! Instead, brace yourself! This only means one thing, death is coming and it’s going to be big. Forget a couple of character deaths per episode, we may just be getting several in the final ones to come.
