Episode 2 of Game of Thrones contained a lot of shocking moments including the Night King and his army of White Walkers killing some of the viewers’ most-beloved characters to the death of the Night King himself. But one of the most shocking moments of the night was the death of Viserion, the Night King’s most powerful weapon, who had resurrected and transformed into the wight dragon who was responsible for bringing down the wall in Season 7’s final moments. 

But after Sunday night’s episode, Viserion is officially dead. 

Within the final moments of Season 8’s third episode The Long Night, Arya Stark jumped out of nowhere and killed the Night King with a Littlefinger’s dagger, which turned the villain into a million tiny ice shards and eradicated the Army of the Dead for good. And since Arya defeated the Night King, all things created by him, including White Walkers, wights, wight dragons and even Viserion were also sent to death.


Besides Arya’s defeat of the Night King, the episode also had a few other scary moments with Daenerys’ dragons. Before the Night King died, Viserion attacked Rhaegal, the dragon Jon was riding, and he seemed to be injured to the point where Jon even fell off of him. But fortunately, Rhaegal made an appearance in the teaser for next week’s episode, proving to viewers that he made it out alive.

In addition to Rhaegal being almost mortally injured, Drogon, who Daenerys always rides, nearly collapsed under the weight of rioting wights. Daenerys even fell off of him and Jorah ran to her rescue. 

Game of Thrones airs Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on HBO.

Viserion, however, lives on in numerous social media posts.
