Game Of Thrones Episodes
The Mountain and the Viper (Season 4, episode 8)
In Game of Thrones, this scene one might have made us the most physically ill of all other horrific scenes. Prince Oberyn of Dorne fights against Ser Gregor Clegane are in a battle to disclose in the end whether Tyrion will live or die.
Hardhome (Season 5, episode 8)
Like The Mountain and the Viper, there’s a one really great scene in Hardhome. Despite not much else happening in the episode, garners it a spot on this list. Jon, some wildlings, and some of the Night’s Watch brothers have sailed north to convince more of the wildlings to join forces with them.
Spoils of War (Season 7, episode 4)
When Game of Thrones’ penultimate season is going to hit its midpoint. Then it finally started paying off some of its longest-running storylines. In this episode, Arya finally returns to Winterfell and here she reunites with Sansa and Bran after the better part of seven seasons and duels with Brienne.
Kissed by Fire (Season 3, episode 5)
Things often get steamy up in the North. Oh, Jon Snow, you puppy-eyed boy, you really do “know nothing.” But that’s OK, Ygritte likes you anyway. Lured into a cave with natural hot springs, Jon and Ygritte shed their furs and make Jon a man — if you catch our drift.”
Battle of the Bastards (Season 6, episode 9)
Game of Thrones has already done big clashes between rival armies. The Battle of the Bastards is arguably the best of the bunch. From the opening moments, in which Ramsay Bolton mows down poor Rickon Stark with an arrow. Then to watch Jon Snow nearly drown in a pile of bodies, the Battle of the Bastards is equal parts thrilling and horrifying. This is illustrating the cost of war better than any Thrones episode before it.
Mother’s Mercy (Season 5, episode 10)
Watching Cersei Lannister get a comeuppance was exquisitely gratifying. Less gratifying but still fun to watch was Sansa — finally, finally fed up enough to bust out of her wooden helplessness and take action, making a run for it.
The Lion and the Rose (Season 4, episode 2)
There was nothing better than watching Joffrey choke to death. Seriously. If there was one main character in Game of Thrones who truly had absolutely nothing redeeming about him, it was Joffrey.
Baelor (Season 1, episode 9)
The death that tipped us off to the way Game of Thrones would roll. Lord Eddard Stark is great at telling the truth and being honorable but, sadly, he’s less effective when it comes to denouncing a king.
