Your guide to who died this week on Game Of Thrones

Since when do things go well on Game of Thrones? There have been a ton of prominent deaths that have been huge influences on the story as a whole.

After six series, countless fan theories and plenty of shipping on social media, Game of Thrones showrunners have finally seen fit to bring two of the show's most important characters together in the same scene - Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. Having the brother she once thought was dead returned to her is better, to her mind, than being Queen in the North.

Pre-show: She seduced her husband Luthor Tyrell when she was engaged to someone else and Luthor was pledged to her sister.

House Tyrell is now one short (in fact, House Tyrell all but dies with Olenna) but another fan favourite returned to reclaim his honours.

Missandei smiles as she has a private conversation with Daenerys on the beaches of Dragonstone.

Season 4: She played a key role in the killing of King Joffrey.

As we saw Cersei taking vengeance on her enemies in season 6 by using wildfire to blow up the Great Sept.

Lena was talking to Time magazine about her character, Queen Cersei Lannister.

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) tries his best to work between the two rulers, but to no avail in Episode 3 of Game of Thrones Season 7.

Season 7: She rises in prominence enough to become a trusted advisor of Daenerys. The Independent has her "amazing" death speech. While this may not seem big out of context, it is in a show where many people are beheaded or killed by ice zombies. She said: "I had an idea it was coming this season, sure".

Finally hearing Olenna confess to conspiring for Joffrey's murder was brutal, given how much Jaime truly cared for the boy plus the fact that Tyrion very almost died thanks to Olenna letting him take the fall for the regicide.

Well, she was never the lord or lady of a major house and instead always second in command. Still, she took full advantage of her final minutes.

Lyanna, who the current generation of characters believe was abducted by Rhaegar, could actually have been a more willing prisoner than we realise.

After downing the poison that Jaime gave to her following the destruction of her family's ancestral home of Highgarden, the fan-favorite Tyrell matriarch revealed that she was the one who orchestrated the murder of Joffrey - Cersei and Jaime's firstborn son. He mercifully offered her some poisoned wine that would ensure she did not die painfully. She didn't realize her poison would turn the former king's death into such an eyesore. We came for the gamesmanship. I can only think of one and that's Maester Aemon Targaryen of the Night's Watch who died of old age. Episode 704 promises to be action-packed, and we can't wait to see Dany unleash the dragon.
