Best Deaths from Game of Thrones
We’ve all been there—you love a particular character so very much. You’ve followed his failures, triumphs, and metaphysical conquests throughout his journey. And then, in a blink of an eye, your beloved character dies a sudden and horrible death—and you curse George R.R. Martin to the high heavens for toying with your emotions like a sick and twisted god of fate. But as the author said, “I want my readers, and I want viewers to be afraid when my characters are in danger. I want them to be afraid to turn the next page because the next character may not survive it.” True enough, we’re all very scared. Here are the best deaths from Game of Thrones.
Very arrogant and extremely stupid, the so-called “the last dragon” sold his sister and deserves to die a horrible death. Finally, Khal Drogo threw some well-deserved molten gold over his head and said, in classic one liner fashion, “A crown for a king.” Talk about one of the best deaths from Game of Thrones history. Finally! The douche met a bitter end and left Dany to carry on the Targaryen name.
Initially he was seen as a rapist, really, but when the Dothraki king’s relationship with Daenerys grew in love, everyone grew to love him as well. He was a big brave killing machine, but he proved that he was a softie inside when it comes to his wife. We all thought he was there to stay and would stick around for a long time, but in classic George R.R. Martin fashion, he dies, and in the most ridiculous way possible—with a flesh wound. Eventually, Dany had to suffocate her love to death to end his misery—truly one of the saddest and best deaths from Game of Thrones.

This has got to be the most shocking and hair-ripping death of them all in Season One. Joffrey ordered that Ned Stark, Lord of Winterfell, die in front of his daughter. This made us realize that even the legendary and epic hero is not safe from the cruel pen of the GoT author. Ned Stark’s head was chopped clear off, and viewers all over the world gasped and fainted.
King Joffrey Baratheon
But the viewers don’t have to cry for revenge for too long. In “The Lion and the Rose”, the 19-year old spawn of evil got what he deserved. He was poisoned at his own wedding in one of the best deaths from Game of Thrones, and to see him choking and suffering moments before he was snuffed gave all fans the satisfaction they’ve been clamoring for since the series began.
Robb Stark played by Richard Madden is evidently one of the major characters in the Game of Thrones series; he is introduced in the first episode of the series and plays a major role until his untimely and extremely violent demise. After his father’s death, he rises up as the king in the north and proves himself an excellent commander by defeating the Lannister forces and even capturing Jamie Lannister. He is however completely inept at politics and seems to value honour over practicality which prove to be his undoing. In the Episode titled ‘Red – Wedding’, while attending a feast thrown by the Walder Frey (Whose daughter Robb had earlier promised to marry, but didn’t deliver), Robb is betrayed by his bannerman Roose Bolton and Walder Frey leading to the slaughter of his army; his wife Talisa, pregnant with their child; his mother, Catelyn Stark; his dire-wolf, Grey Wind and Robb himself, who is killed by the hands of Roose. Despite the unpredictable deaths of numerous characters on Game of Thrones, this death came as a shock to all the viewers/readers, proving once again that George R.R. Martin is unquestionably skilled at keeping his fans on their toes.
