SPOILER ALERT: If you’re not caught up on this season of Game of Thrones, don’t keep reading.

Over the course of its past seven seasons, the political and military maneuverings on Game of Thrones have sparked countless leadership-style lessons and corporate boss comparison breakdowns.
But here we are heading into the fourth episode of the eighth and final season, and many of the show’s most iconic and memorable leaders and boss types are as dead as the “Bran is the Night King” theory. Ned Stark? Dead by beheading. Rob Stark? Dead by stabbing, then beheaded. Tywin Lannister? Dead by crossbow on the can. King Joffrey? Dead by poison pie. Lady Olenna? Dead by just poison. Little Finger? Dead by slit throat. Night King? Dead by dagger.
Those who are left and the dynamics among them have changed significantly, and no doubt GoT will continue to mess with our minds and expectations as we get closer to that final episode.
