You can’t turn away from the 10 most memorable Game of Thrones death scenes

Warning: Major spoilers!!

If you’re a sucker for happy endings, turn back now. Neither HBO’s hit series or the George R.R. Martin novels on which it’s based are known for their happy endings. In fact, if you’re familiar with the story thus far — engineered by Martin and show creators David Benioff & D. B. Weiss — you’ve probably already seen a few of your favorite characters perish. Along with AMC’s smash series The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones is representative of a new trend in television: Death.

Gory, creative, spectacular death scenes are the set pieces that drive the plot forward in both shows, and it often feels as if the creators of Thrones are constantly playing Russian Roulette with your favorite cast of characters. With that in mind, we’ve decided to look back over the past six years and put together a chronological list of the 10 most memorable death scenes in the shows history thus far
