Game of Thrones, The O.C. Mash-Up: Shot Through the Heart!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

If you haven't seen, Game of Thrones season 4, episode 9, then consider this your spoiler alert. The epic hour-long battle at the wall shocked fans with a confrontation between Jon Snow and Ygritte, during which the redheaded wildling took an arrow through the chest.

If you haven't finished watching the second season of The O.C., Marissa shot Trey Atwood in the finale. You get no spoiler alert because, c'mon...that was ten years ago.

Anyway, what could these two beloved series have in common, other than slavishly devoted fan bases? Well, thanks to one genius YouTube user, the O.C. and GoT now share a common taste in stunner music:

If you're of the right age watching the clip above might give you a flashback to 2004 when you feverishly called your friends after the Marissa-Trey showdown, hoping that someday, someone would invent texting so that you wouldn't have to pick your jaw up off the floor in order to ask WTF just happened.

And if you think that's the only fan-made tribute to everyone's favorite fallen ginger, well, you know nothing, Jon Snow (sorry):

Okay, this one's a little more obvious, but no less inspired. We'll never again listen to Bon Jovi without thinking of death-by-eight-year-old.

We're not sure what it is about GoT that inspires fans to take to the Internet and re-edit scenes to their liking. Maybe it's the fact that the show leaves audiences so traumatized that finding humor in shockers like Ygritte's death works as a sort of group therapy session.

If you feel like re-opening old wounds, watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic or check out our gallery GoT's most shocking deaths below.

And if you start feeling overwhelmed, just remember that time heals all wounds. Unless someone dumps a bucket of melted gold over your head, then you're just done for.
