“The final scene was perfect,” says our reader thedemonhog about his favorite “Game of Thrones” moment of all time: the death of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) in “Baelor.” “[Director] Alan Taylor did such a great job on that episode.” In our fun forums, we asked our readers to name their favorite “Game of Thrones” moments of all time and they did NOT disappoint. See their Top 10 choices by scrolling through our new photo gallery above.
Bean’s departure back in Season 1 set the stage for what would become a truly unpredictable series — one that wasn’t shy about killing off even its most important of characters. There are four such deaths in our photo gallery above, so be wary of SPOILERS if you aren’t up to date on HBO’s fantasy epic.
Some of our readers’ other top moments include Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) impassioned speech in “The Laws of Gods and Men,” Sansa’s (Sophie Turner) increased role in Season 6 and not one but two memorable scenes with the Queen of Dragons herself, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke).
