It may come as a shock to viewers, but a lot of people die in "Game of Thrones." In the background of HBO's hit fantasy show dealing with political drama, displaced families and dragons looms death. David Murphy, working as Datasaurus Rex, created an interactive visualization of all the deaths on the show up to the "Game of Thrones" Season 5 premiere.
The difficult thing to do with this show, is to keep a tally of all the death that happens. Murphy calculated 468 deaths, but that number is out of date after just one episode. In "Game of Thrones" Season 5, episode 2, "The House of Black and White," a couple of people die. So, Murphy will need to update the visualization, but it's a great representation of who has killed and the preferred method of death.
Jon Snow, for example, has killed 17 people, with most of the deaths taking place in "Game of Thrones" Season 4. Not surprisingly, Snow has used his sword in the vast majority of his kills. Users can select each character and see who they have killed. The interactive also includes a map that details where the most deaths have taken place. King's Landing has been a treacherous place, so it shouldn't shock anyone to learn that 118 deaths have happened there. There's also a timeline -- by season and episode -- showing when each death occurred as well as a breakdown of factions and methods.
It will be interesting to see what this interactive loosk like by the end of the series. There are hints at some major battles on the horizon and who knows how many main characters will be living by the time "Game of Thrones" wraps up. We wish Murphy the best of luck keeping track of all the deaths on the show.
