‘Game Of Thrones’ fans are no stranger to seeing horrible deaths play out on their TV screens — from Lysa Arryn’s recent death to Joffrey’s to even Ned Stark’s all the way back in Season 1, check out our gallery of the 11 most shocking deaths in ‘GoT’!
Any reader of the Song Of Ice And Fire novels knows that telling a Game Of Thrones viewer that this person or that person will die is not really a spoiler — merely an eventuality. Check out our gallery of the 11 most shocking deaths in Game Of Thrones — most of whom who had it coming — and mourn not only their deaths but the fact that there is no new episode over the Memorial Day weekend!
‘Game Of Thrones’: Most Shocking Deaths — Ned Stark, Joffrey & More
From Westeros to across the Narrow Sea, death is not just something that happens — it’s something that happens to you. Indeed, in the Game Of Thrones, where you either win or you die, there is not much room for dying of old age.
Lysa Arryn (Kate Dickey) was the most recent victim of the game, having been pushed out of her own Moon Door on the May 18 episode. She, like Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), another recent pawn in Petyr Baelish’s (Aiden Gillen) game, pretty much had it coming.
‘Game Of Thrones’ Deaths: Whose Made You The Happiest?
However, not all of these deaths have been righteous; while Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) was not necessarily the kindest man to his wife, Cersei (Lena Headey), we were as sorry to see him go — especially after the events his death spawned — as we were to see Ned Stark (Sean Bean) and Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony) shuffle off their mortal coils.
So, HollywoodLifers — after checking out our gallery, whose death made you the saddest? And whose gave you the most vicious joy (looking at you, Joffrey)? Let us know!
