Game of Thrones season finales always deliver. From jaw-dropping final scenes to crazy deaths, Game of Thrones is not afraid to go there. In honor of the season 6 finale airing June 26, HollywoodLife.com has made a list of the top season finale scenes in Game of Thrones history!
*Jon Snow’s ‘death’ (season 5 finale)
Watching Jon Snow get stabbed by the men of the Night’s Watch was too much bear. The final blow was dealt by the evil Olly, and everyone just left Jon to bleed out and die. When season 6 started up, Jon Snow was truly dead. But he was later revived by Melisandre!
*Cersei’s walk of shame (season 5 finale)
The season 5 finale was just full of shocking moments. To atone for her sins, Cersei was forced to cut her hair, strip naked and walk through the streets of King’s Landing. It was a brutal punishment for Cersei — the people of King’s Landing threw all kinds of things at her. Cersei bravely finished her walk of atonement and vowed revenge on her enemies.
*Ned Stark’s execution (season 1 finale)
This was the moment that changed TV. For those who read the books, they knew it was coming, but it didn’t lessen the blow. This pivotal event changed the course of Game of Thrones forever. Despite Sansa’s begging, Joffrey gave the OK for Ned Stark’s head to be chopped off.
*Tyrion kills Shae & Tywin (season 4 finale)
FINALLY! Let’s face it, we all wanted Shae and Tywin to die, especially after learning of Shae’s betrayal. Tyrion found Shae in Tywin’s bed before his narrow escape, and he ended up STRANGLING his former lover to death. Then he killed his father with a bow and arrow while he sat on the toilet. Epic.
*Daenerys reunites with Khal Drogo and son (season 2 finale)
While at the House of the Undying, Daenerys has visions of her dead husband and son. She shares a sweet moment with Khal Drogo and what would have been her son Rhaego. When she remembers this is only an illusion, she leaves her boys behind.
*Jaime helps Tyrion escape (season 5 finale)
In a shocking twist, Jaime betrayed Cersei and helped Tyrion escape King’s Landing before he was beheaded. It was an important moment for Tyrion and Jaime’s relationship. Before sending him off, Jaime revealed Tysha, Tyrion’s first wife, was never a whore hired by Jaime. Tywin had commanded Jaime to tell Tyrion that to hurt him. Tyrion later killed his father.
