Game of Thrones Season 8 has, to put it mildly, been one of the most divisive seasons of TV in recent memory.

It's the last true watercooler TV show, and now it's almost over for good. After 72 episodes, eight years, and an unfathomable number of deaths, shocks, thrills, spills, and just about everything else you can throw into a TV show, whether it's a shadow baby or a coffee cup, Game of Thrones is coming to an end. And for a series that has, in part, been defined by its willingness to kill characters off, there's bound to be at least one or two more character exits before the show rolls its credits for the last time.
