Stannis Baratheon is dead and it's official now

The Game of Thrones Season 5 finale was a bloody episode with lots of people dying and Stannis was supposedly one of the dead people. We had seen how Brienne confronted him and then swung her Valryian sword. However there were many people who speculated that as it wasn’t shown that she actually made contact, he might still be alive. Recently at Comic-Con, the episode director, David Nutter confirmed that Stannis was actually dead. This is what Nutter said to Entertainment Weekly:

“From the very beginning, and [through] the script process, that was the intent — he’s dead,”

Even Gwendoline Christie who plays the role of Brienne has confirmed his death. She confirmed his death while talking to E! News

“I can’t offer you any insight whatsoever [why his death wasn’t shown onscreen] because I don’t write the show and I don’t direct the show… yet!. No, but how could you ever doubt Brienne? What did you think I was doing, giving him a haircut?”
