The Battle of Winterfell is upon us, and fans of Game of Thrones are expecting to see a massacre that’s unlike anything the show has shown us before. Many fans have been speculating on who will live and who will die, and it looks like Lyanna Mormont was one of the unlucky ones. The brave Bear Islander was crushed by a giant, but that didn't stop her from impressively taking him down with her. Lyanna stabbed the giant right through the eye, and the Internet has a lot of feelings.

R.I.P Lyanna Mormont! You will always be the best of us.
While plot details surrounding the Battle of Winterfell have been scarce, we finally learned last week what the Night King really wants. During “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” Bran Stark revealed that the Night King is after an endless night, which means he needs to kill Bran/The Three-Eyed Raven in order to erase his living memory of the world.
There has also been some extreme hints from the cast that it’s going to be the most intense and gruesome battle we’ve seen on the show.
If you’re worried about what’s to come in the final episodes of the series, you’re not wrong. The series’ writer and producer, Bryan Cogman, recently shared that audience opinion does not factor into their decisions.
"We just have to tell the story we want to tell and feel the rhythm of the story as we're laying it out," Cogman explained. "There aren't any conversations about what people are going to think. If it feels right, that's what we do.”
Game of Thrones airs Sunday nights on HBO TV at 9pm EST.
