And now her list is significantly shorter. Melisandre and Beric both died in season eight, episode three: “The Long Night.” After fulfilling her life’s purpose in defeating the Night King, Melisandre took off her magical necklace and died peacefully outside of Winterfell. As for Beric, he sacrificed himself to save Arya’s life during the Battle of Winterfell. Then in last week's episode, “The Bells,” the Hound battles his Frankenstein brother in an epic fight. Just when it seems like the Mountain will never die, the Hound stabs his nemesis in the head and then sacrifices himself by throwing them both off the side of the castle and into pits of flames. (Did we cheer out loud when this happened? Absolutely.)
Finally, in one of the most disappointing deaths in TV history, Cersei appears to have died alongside Jaime Lannister when she was crushed by the crumbling Red Keep (thanks, Daenerys).
That means that there's just one person left on Arya’s list: Ilyn Payne for his role in executing Ned Stark. But here's the problem—we haven’t seen him since season two, so it’s unclear where Arya will find him or if he's even still alive after Dany burned the city to the ground.
Our prediction? Arya will forget all about Ilyn Payne and add a new name to her kill list—Daenerys Targaryen. And if anyone can get the job done, she can.
