The best, most brutal, and most memorable Game of Thrones episodes


We finally know who sits on the Iron Throne, but it’s never too late to sit down and watch Game of Thrones again. Revisit all of the nefarious plots, horrifying monsters, brutal murders, and epic battles with this list of our favorite episodes of HBO’s groundbreaking fantasy series.
Game of Thrones‘ final season may not have lived up to some fans’ exceedingly high expectations, but either way, our Sunday nights just became a lot more open. We could spend the time watching something else, waiting for George R. Martin to finish the books or debate who should’ve actually become king, but there’s really only one way to fill the dragon-sized hole in our hearts: Watch the series again.
Of course, now that we know what happens, we can skip straight to the good stuff, and if you’re feeling down after the show’s rocky conclusion, these episodes will remind you why you fell in love with Game of Thrones in the first place. This means, of course, that spoilers run rampant throughout the list. Seriously, lots of spoilers. Proceed at your own risk. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Of all the horrific death scenes in Game of Thrones, this one might have made us the most physically ill. Prince Oberyn of Dorne fights against Ser Gregor Clegane (aka The Mountain) in a battle to determine whether Tyrion will live or die. Why? Because that’s just how justice is done in Westeros, OK?

Oberyn gets a hit! A very palpable hit! Then another. Then he gets cocky. And as he struts around Ser Gregor’s monstrous body on the ground demanding a confession, Ser Gregor gives him one — while gouging out his eyes and caving in his skull with his bare hands. Poor Tyrion.
When Game of Thrones’ penultimate season hits its midpoint, it finally starts paying off on some of its longest-running storylines. In this episode, Arya finally returns to Winterfell, where she reunites with Sansa and Bran after the better part of seven seasons and spars with Brienne. Jon and Daenerys show some sparks, the mysterious Children of the Forest get a little less mysterious and, oh yeah, Dany sics her Dothraki soldiers and a freakin’ dragon on the Lannister army. That’s all stuff that we’d been waiting to see, and boy, did Game of Thrones ever deliver.
In the season 1 finale, Robb is declared King in the North, Cersei takes a new lover — her cousin, this time — and Arya escapes King’s Landing with a troupe bound for the Night’s Watch.
