Game of Thrones: Who Is on Arya’s Kill List?

Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark is well-known for her "kill list." Every night she recites a list of people she wants to kill one day before she falls asleep.

Who's currently on the list? It's different on the show compared to the A Song of Ice and Fire books, so here’s a combination of both and where those characters’ fates currently are on the show.

The Tickler (books) The Tickler was the Mountain’s main torturer at Harrenhal at season 2, and was the first name that Arya gave Jaqen H’ghar. Show status: Dead.

Polliver (books) Polliver was one of the Mountain’s men as well, and he’s notable for stealing Arya’s sword, Needle. We already saw Arya pay him back in the Season 4 premiere, making him the first on her list that she got to scratch off permanently. Show status: Dead.

Armory Lorch (books). A Lannister soldier and associate of the Mountain, Amory was the second person Arya named to Jaqen H’ghar at Harrenhal. Show status: Dead.

Weese, Chyswyck, Dunsen, and Raff the Sweetling (books) These four are part of the Mountain’s torturing crew at Harrenhal. They did not appear on the show by name. Show status: Nonexistent.

The Mountain (books) The Hound’s older brother, Arya ran into him at Harrenhal where he was commanding an unsavory bunch of torturers. Show status: Alive.

Ser Meryn Trant (books) The cruelest member of the Kingsguard, Ser Meryn had a hand in Ned Stark’s execution. Show status: Alive.

Ser Ilyn Payne (books, former show). Ser Ilyn is the King’s Justice, and it was he who swung the blade that beheaded Ned Stark. The show has retired his character out of respect for the actor who portrays him, Wilko Johnson, who has terminal cancer. Show status: Written out of show.

The Hound (removed) The Hound was present on Arya’s list on both the show and the books, but has since been removed on the show since they’re BFFs now. Show status: Alive.

King Joffrey (books and show) Joffrey and Arya first crossed paths in Season 1 in the incident that caused her friend Mycah’s murder. Too bad Arya wasn’t present at the Purple Wedding. Show status: Dead.

Queen Cersei (books and show) Arya blames Cersei for the death of Sansa’s direwolf Lady and the disappearance of her own wolf, Nymeria, and also blames Cersei in part for her father’s death. Show status: Alive.

Tywin Lannister (show only) We guess Arya includes Tywin on her list because he’s the Lannister patriarch and she hates Lannisters, but if she knew that he orchestrated the Red Wedding she’d probably move him to the top of her list. Show status: Alive.

Melisandre (show only) Referred to as “the Red Woman” by Arya, she despises Melisandre because she took Gendry away from her. This doesn’t happen in the books, but it makes sense for Arya to hate her on the show. Show status: Alive.

Do you think Arya will get to kill more people from her list? Let us know in the comments below!
