In all the craziness of the Game of Thrones finale, you might have forgotten that Arya Stark had a list of people she wanted to kill that she updated throughout the entire series. She would say it to herself every night before she went to bed, like some twisted lullaby.
Because receipts are important, here’s a full breakdown of who she killed and who she didn’t.
People Arya herself killed
Who dat? The guy whose daughter Robb Stark was supposed to marry and didn’t. The orchestrator of the entire Red Wedding. General bad dude.
Who killed him? Arya did! She killed, like, his entire family as payback for killing hers.
Who dat? The guy who killed Syrio Forel, who taught Arya how to use a sword.
Who killed him? Arya. She slit his throat in that brothel where he was abusing young girls.
Who dat? When Arya and Co. were first leaving King’s Landing because they were sold to the Night’s Watch, a group of Lannister soldiers came looking for Gendry. They ended up killing one of Arya’s other friends, which put Polliver on her kill list.
Who killed him? Arya, while traveling with The Hound.
Who dat? One of the original prisoners traveling north with all those people ^^^ who were sold to the Night’s Watch. TBH, it’s kind of unclear why he ended up on Arya’s list other than just being a dick.
Who killed him? Arya. With The Hound’s permission.
People who died because other people got to them first
Thoros of Myr
Who dat? One of the guys who helped sell Gendry to Melisandre.
Who killed him? Wights, in a battle north of the Wall.
Who dat? Alright, you know who Melisandre is, but you might have forgotten that she landed on Arya’s list because she took Gendry away from her/from safety.
Who killed her? Umm…she kinda killed herself? Or rather, let herself die after living a long, weird, twisted life.
Who dat? No need to even explain this one, lol.
Who killed her? Dany, sort of?? Technically a pile of rubble, but whatever.
Who dat? The guy who protected Arya for, like, the entire series…but who also killed the butcher’s son, which is hard to even remember at this point.
Who killed him? His brother, kinda. He was off the list at that point anyway.
Who dat? The Mountain, among many others, was one of the people who tortured all those prisoners at Harrenhal.
Who killed him? The Hound, I guess? The Mountain vs. Arya would have been a lit matchup though.
Who dat? Cersei, Jaime, and Tyrion’s dad, who Arya worked for at Harrenhal. He was basically responsible for every bad thing to happen to Arya’s family, including the Red Wedding.
Who killed him? His own son Tyrion, with a crossbow, while he was on the toilet. Amazing.
Who dat? The little sh*t king who decided it was cool to kill Ned Stark.
Who killed him? Lady Olenna and Petyr Baelish poisoned him at his own damn wedding. Thank god.
Who dat? You know, the guy with the eye patch. He was on the list for helping sell Gendry.
Who killed him? Wights, in the Battle of Winterfell. He’d redeemed himself by that point, though, and he actually died trying to save Arya. RIP.
People who miraculously lived??
Ser Ilyn Payne
Who dat? The guy who swung the ax and killed Ned Stark.
What happened to him? We have literally no idea. For all we know, he’s still chillin’ somewhere in Westeros.
Arya only killed four of the people on her list, but hey, only one person originally on the list actually survived. Plus, she killed the Night King and saved all of humanity, so we’ll consider her the winner at the end of the day.
