20 Game of Thrones Deaths We'll Never Completely Get Over
By: Kimi Ann-Marie
Game of Thrones loves making us fall for a character then ripping them out from under our feet. The deaths are always far from pretty, so we're forced to cry our eyes out as our faves bleed out.
Spoiler alert, obviously.
1) Jon Snow
The bastard Stark who won our hearts from the start. His death ended Season 5 and left us in tears; we waited a whole year to discover we cried over nothing because, thankfully, he’s still alive.
A gorgeous Wildling, Jon Snow’s girl was shot by Olly’s arrow when she’s in Castle Black. The worst part is that she dies in Jon’s arms.
3) Eddard "Ned" Stark
The beloved Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North was only with us for a short time, but we fell for him instantly. He was a kind-hearted man and we hated to say goodbye.
4) Benjen Stark
Eddard Stark’s brother was a member of the Night Watch. The tears flowed freely as Jon Snow read the note about his death.
5) Talisa Stark
The beautiful bride of “The Blood Wedding” was stabbed in the stomach while pregnant. Not cool.
6) Robb Stark
The King of the North and breathtaking groom at “The Blood Wedding,” Robb was shot by a Frey crossbow then stabbed in the heart by Roose Bolton. Talk about a double shot of tears.
7) Catelyn Stark
A lonely mother and wife as well as another victim of “The Blood Wedding.” She had her throat slit by Black Walder River. Okay, make that a triple shot of tears.
8) Rickon Stark
Another beloved Stark ripped away from us by the evil Ramsay Bolton. RIP.
9) Shireen Baratheon
She stole our hearts in just a few episodes. She was just a little girl but died as a sacrifice to the Lord of Light, only a monster could watch that and feel nothing.
10) Selyse Baratheon
Shireen’s mother hangs herself after the sacrifice and we can't help but feel her pain.
11) Tommen Baratheon
Joffery Baratheon’s little brother fell in love with Queen Margaery and married her. The poor young man jumped out of his bedroom window after an explosion killed Maraeny; talk about true love.
12) Loras Tyrell
The father of Margaery wasn’t an evil man like half the characters in the show, but he burned alive in the wildfire started by Cersei.
13) Margaery Tyrell
The Queen of King’s Landing (through marriage to King Joffery Baratheon and Tomman Baratheon) had a good heart, but her motives weren’t clear. She was another unfortunate victim of the wildfire.
The sexy Chieftain of the Dothraki who stole our hearts with his hot bod and accent...until he died, shattering our hearts as he lay unconscious after a spell done by Mirri Maz Duur.
A stillborn baby who was murdered by Mirri Maz Duur’s blood magic. Poor little one didn’t even have a chance.
Daenerys Targaryen's handmaiden who helped her learn Dothraki was murdered by a dragon during a battle. All of the dragons’ killings are just awful, but hers stood out because she didn’t deserve it.
17) Jojen Reed
Bran Stark had a psychic connection with Reed that messes up and kills Reed when Meera, White Walker King, appears.
Tyrion Lannister’s girlfriend who he loved dearly but strangled as self-defense because the jealous monster took over her.
19) Hizdahr zo Loraq
The Dragon Queen’s husband (who she hates at first) earned her love and ours along with it. Seeing him stabbed by the Sons of the Harpy was brutual.
The beloved servant of the Starks only said his name, but they understood him. We learn he’s really saying “hold the door” as Bran and his friends are escaping the Three-Eyed Raven’s house.
Time to start placing bets on who's next, because let’s face it - more are coming. Let’s just hope it’s no one we love.
