With some help from Chris Martin!

So long, farewell.

*Spoiler alert: If you have not watched Game of Thrones Season 5, including last night’s finale, please stop here (and maybe listen to 14 covers of the theme song instead).*

He who knows nothing really didn’t see that coming. And neither did viewers on Sunday, when we watched the Night’s Watch stab Jon Snow (Kit Harington) to death at Castle Black. Jon was just one of several deaths featured on the season finale, as we also bid adieu to Selyse Baratheon, Stannis Baratheon, Myranda the kennel master’s daughter, Ser Meryn, Myrcella Baratheon, and Arya Stark’s vision.

Like George R. R. Martin’s books, the HBO series this season has been unpredictable in both plot — how many times have you screamed, “That doesn’t happen in the book!” — and the fate of each character, major and minor.
