The third episode of HBO’s “Game of Throne’s” final season, titled “The Long Night,” saw many soldiers fall in the highly anticipated Battle of Winterfell.

Some major characters, like Lyanna Mormont and Theon Greyjoy, were clearly killed by the Army of the Dead. After the climactic moment of the 82-minute episode, when Arya Stark killed the Night King and ended the battle, a short montage confirmed the survival of many others.

The fates of a few more, however, were left ambiguous.

Both Grey Worm and Jon Snow’s direwolf, Ghost, were on the front lines of the battle when the wights attacked, and neither had scenes that confirmed either death or survival.

But worry not: They’re both in the teaser for the next episode.
