And now the director of the episode in question (the one with THAT epic battle scene) has commented on whether Ed’s character was among those who died. 

In the episode, ‘The Spoils of War’, the Lannister army (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER. THERE’S A SPOILER) got pretty nailed by Daenerys and her dragon. 

Matt Shakman, director of said scene, has revealed that “The idea behind the question is an interesting one and I think the earlier scene that was so great with Arya meeting those Lannister soldiers, where we humanise what those Lannisters are like, that they’re generous with her, only helps this sequence because it helps you feel for the men who are shaking in terror as their death is upon them”.
