Of the many lessons we learned from the fourth season of Game of Thrones, chief among them was this: Life is fleeting. Or fragile. Or precious. Okay, so we're not exactly sure what we learned.

You've come to the right place. Below is a pretty stunning compilation of every death from season four. The two-minute clip is a stark reminder of how violent HBO's hit show really is. Stabbings, axings, crossbow-ings, it doesn't matter. If it stops you from breathing, it's fair game in Westeros. Obviously, spoilers ahead.
