14 Shocking Game of Thrones Deaths

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Every season of Game of Thrones is packed with jaw-dropping violence, and season 5 was no exception. 

Over the years we've seen beheadings, poisonings, death by infected boo-boo (RIP, Khal Drogo), a man getting shot by an arrow while being burned (pour one out for Mance Rayder), even the old "molten gold dumped over the head" trick.

But even with all those grisly shockers, no one (aside from the smug spoiler machines who read the books!) could have predicted the astonishing final moments of Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 10.

Is Jon Snow dead? If so, will he be raised by Melisandre, bro-down with the Night's King, and take revenge on the traitors who stabbed him?

We won't know for several months (Even the book-readers can't spoil this one!), but for now we're declaring Jon Snow DOA , just like the rest of these poor SOBs. 

Like his namesake element, Snow may be back next season, but for now, he's earned a spot on our list of Game of Thrones most memorable deaths:



14. Viserys Gets Crowned

Viserys was up there with King Joffrey in terms of douchebags we loved to hate. Even so, his death by molten gold is tough to watch.

13. Mande Rayder Swekered at His Own Barbecue!

Mance Rayder was spared a brutal death on Game of Thrones. He still died, of course...it just wasn't quite as brutal.

12. Tyrion Gets His Revenge

Tywin and Shae learned a valuable lesson: Don't mess with the Imp. Unfortunately, it's too late for them to do anything with that knowledge.

11. Ser Hugh Gets Skewered

The joust is supposed to be for recreation. But as they say, it's all fun and games until The Mountain gets involved.

10. Rat Torture

Rat Torture
This is how torture is done in Westeros, a rat is forced by rising temperatured to chew through your innards. Obviously, this dude was not a major character, but we'll never forget his horrific death.

9. Ser Rodrik: Worst. Beheading. Ever.

A prime example of a minor character who goes out in a major way. Don't worry, Theon gets his later.
