Cause of "death": Brienne of Tarth seems on the verge of using Oathkeeper to avenge the murder of Renly by the shadow wearing Stannis' face.
Why death is likely: With his family all dead and his army in ruins, Stannis seems to have served his dramatic purpose on the show.
Why it may not be: The scene deliberately cuts away from Brienne beginning her killing stroke to Ramsay finishing one, which could be the show disguising Brienne's actions, or simply it trying to draw a link between the death of this army's commander and that of one of the soldiers who followed him into this stupid battle. Also, Davos and Melisandre still live, so if Brienne spares him, he won't be completely bereft of related characters.
