Catelyn and Robb Stark

I don’t think I breathed for at least an hour after this episode ended. And not in a good way. Probably the most shocking death(s) of the entire series.

Ned Stark

Only satisfying when re-watching with a Game of Thrones newbie, so you can joyously exclaim “LOOK HOW MESSED UP THIS SERIES IS” to them. I miss Sean Bean.

1/10 satisfaction


Mance Rayder

A genuinely good guy who died because he refused to bend the knee to that wet wipe Stannis.

Osha

She was loyal and great and didn’t deserve to die, especially at the hands of Ramsay.

1/10 satisfaction


Oberyn Martell

If you think the sound of a sexy Dornish man’s skull cracking is satisfying, we can’t be friends.

Viserion

To quote Steve Carrell in The Office: No! God! Please! No!

Maester Aemon

He genuinely just died peacefully of old age, I didn’t even think old age was a thing you could die of in Game of Thrones.

2/10 satisfaction


Rickon Stark

RUN DIAGONALLY, YOU TINY FOOL.

Sad, but he was old anyway.

2/10 satisfaction


Ser Barristan Selmy

Image result for barristan selmy death

A bit nondescript but a nice man nonetheless. Bless him for being the victim of that boring Sons of the Harpy storyline.

2/10 satisfaction


Myrcella Baratheon

Related image

I can barely remember her, only that her dying words were that she was happy to be born as a result of incest. Weird flex, but OK.

2/10 satisfaction


Tommen Baratheon

He was a bit pathetic, but one of the good ones.

2/10 satisfaction


Ygritte

Image result for ygritte death

The ultimate annoying epitome of I’m nOt LiKe OtHEr gIrLs, but it was sad to see her die in Jon Snow’s arms.

3/10 satisfaction


Jojen Reed

Who?

3/10 satisfaction


Olenna Tyrell

Olenna

Didn’t care too much about this death, but the meme-payoff has been strong.

3/10 satisfaction


Thoros of Myr

Image result for thoros of myr death

He had a shit topknot, but it was sad to see him die beyond the wall fighting for the right side.

3/10 satisfaction


The Sand Snakes

Image result for sand snakes death

Ellaria Sand was a bad-ass and I didn’t want her to die. (Or rot in a cell)

4/10 satisfaction


Khal Drogo

Image result for khal drogo death

Why does everyone love Khal Drogo? Has everyone forgotted how he raped Daenerys (who had major Stockholm Syndrome)? 

4/10 satisfaction


Robert Baratheon

Image result for robert baratheon death

“I’m not trying to honor you, I’m trying to get you to run my kingdom while I eat, drink, and whore my way to an early grave.”

5/10 satisfaction


Shae 

Image result for shae death

She was a jealous fool and falsely testified against Tyrion so her death was pretty satisfying, though she did spend her life being manipulated in the hands of powerful men.

6/10 satisfaction


Margaery Tyrell and the High Sparrow

Image result for high sparrow death

It was sad, but such a bad-ass move from Cersei that you sort of can’t help but enjoy it. Also Margaery was a bit of a gold-digger who liked to marry pubescent boys.

6/10 satisfaction


Lysa Arryn

Related image

The woman breast fed a nine year old. And was in love with Littlefinger, of all people.

7/10 satisfaction


Renly Baratheon

Related image

Got killed by a shadow looooooooooool.

7/10 satisfaction


Walder Frey 

Image result for walder frey death

When I eventually stop shouting “STUDENTS OUT OF BED!!!” at my TV screen, it is clear that he is a very bad man and murdered some of the best characters. He had to go. 

7/10 satisfaction


Myranda

Related image

I barely remember this woman except she was a freak in the sheets and got thrown off a rampart by Theon.

7/10 satisfaction


Olly

Image result for olly death

Little shit. Taken off a point because he’s a child and don’t want to look too heartless.

8/10 satisfaction


Tywin Lannister

Related image

His death was a bit of a CRAPPY situation, you could say.

8/10 satisfaction


Joffrey Baratheon

Related image

Look, I know he was a total prick, but he was raised by Robert Baratheon and Cersei, for god’s sake, what do you expect? His death was fun until he literally turned purple and started foaming, and then I felt a bit sick.

8/10 satisfaction


Roose Bolton

Related image

A horrible traitor who deserved to die, but it probably would have been more satisfying if he had been avenged by the Starks, not stabbed by Ramsay.

8/10 satisfaction


Stannis Baratheon

Image result for stannis baratheon death

No charisma, literally burnt his daughter alive. Go on then, Brienne, finish him off.

Alexa, play Little Mix’s “Black Magic.”

A CROWN FOR A KING. One of the coolest and most underrated deaths.

9/10 satisfaction


Craster

I have no qualms with the murder of a serial rapist.

9/10 satisfaction


Meryn Trant

Image result for meryn trant death

Watching a paedo getting stabbed in the eyes: top quality satisfaction levels.

10/10 satisfaction


Littlefinger

Related image

The build of up Sansa and Arya pretending to be feuding and then “How do you plead, Lord Baelish?” had me SCREAMING. His splutters of disbelief and then begging and then his throat being slit was the perfect end to this slimy, awful character.

10/10 satisfaction


Ramsay Bolton

Devoured by dogs at the hands of the woman he abused was the greatest end the biggest villain.
