Lord Of The Rings The Two Towers previously held that record with the Battle of Helm’s Deep.
With that, Game of Thrones is shattering peoples self-esteem by killing off so many characters since it’s debut.
The show has an estimated over 2,000 onscreen death count, according to the Washington Post.
Last night’s episode easily added another couple hundred to that death count.
The last episode of Game of Thrones airs May 19th.
Wrapping up 8 years of fantasy and medieval stories!
