Remember this crucial piece of advice back in season one?
Unfortunately many characters did not learn sword fighting from the First Sword of Braavos, had no idea what to say to the God of Death, and died.
Just for a quick recap (and because we enjoy making ourselves miserable), here are the characters who have died between seasons one and four.
John Arryn - Poison
THE SEED IS STRONG.
Robert Baratheon - Mauled by boar
Khal Drogo – Infection/witch/smothered with pillow
This one was just horrible. We love you forever Drogo!
Viserys Targaryen – Burned alive by molten gold poured over his head
A crown for a King!
Lady – Throat slit
Direwolves are main characters OKAY.
Jory Cassel – Knifed
Straight through the eye. We liked Jory as well!
Ned Stark - Beheaded
Are we ever going to forget the line that made us hate Joffrey and distrust this show for life?
"Ser Ilyn! Bring me his head!"
Renly Baratheon – stabbed by smoke ghost
That's what happens when you go against your brother who is teamed up with a Priestess who gives birth to smoke babies, just saying.
Yoren – Shot with crossbow
Whilst saving Gendry. What a babe.
Rodrik – Botched beheading (bleurgh)
"Gods help you Theon Greyjoy. Now you are truly lost."
Irri – Strangled
Click on the picture to see the kind of weird deleted scene death...
Matthos Seaworth – Wildfire
"Death by fire is the purest death."
Maester Luwin – Stabbed
UGH. THEON YOU RUIN EVERYTHING.
Pyat Pree – Dragon fire
Lesson learned: never steal Dany's dragons.
Qhorin Halfhand – Stabbed
This was noble. Thanks Qhorin, we should have cared more when you died.
Xaro Xhoan Daxos and Doreah – Shut in vault
This one REALLY gave us the chills.
Also quick shout out to all of Robert Baratheon’s bastards (apart from Gendry). Those were some sad times.
Jeor Mormont – Stabbed
Then Karl drinks from his skull. DARK.
Talisa Stark – Red Wedding
Can't talk about this.
Grey Wind – Red Wedding
Can't talk about THIS.
Robb Stark – Red Wedding
"The Lannisters send their regards."
Catelyn Stark – Red Wedding
We hated that wedding.
Krazynys mo Nakloz – Dragon Fire
That's what happens when you slag off Daenerys in her mother tongue, bitch.
Rickard Karstark – Beheaded
Don't go against the King in the North!
Craster - Stabbed
Good. Good times.
Ros – Shot with crossbow
No one really cared about Ros, but this was a tad sadistic.
Orell – Stabbed
Warg your way out of this one!
Joffrey Baratheon – Poisoned (lol)
OH BYE JOFFREY! BYE!
Oberyn Martell – Head crushed in
We will never, ever get over this one. Damn it Oberyn, you'd WON.
Ygritte – Shot by bow/cruel irony
As if Jon's life needed to get worse.
Jojen Reed – Throat slit
He's still alive in the books! What is happening?!
The Hound – Battle with Brienne of Tarth
Well, we assume so anyway. Arya left him severely wounded, so "unless there's a Maester hiding behind that rock..."
Shae – Strangled
Don't mess with Tyrion Shae.
Tywin Lannister – Shot by crossbow
To be fair Tywin, he did warn you about saying the word 'whore'.
Locke – Neck snapped by Hodor/Bran
Hodor for the Throne!
Karl Tanner – Stabbed
Through the MOUTH.
Lysa Arryn – Pushed out of Moon Door
"I have only loved one woman. Only one, my entire life. Your sister" BOOM. Flysa Arryn. Hehehe.
Pyp – Shot by arrow
Damn this was sad.
Grenn – Killed by giant
This was so sad, but awesome.
Styr – Killed by hammer
Rather a cannibalistic wilding than Jon!
So that's it! Obviously there's a few hundred foot soldiers to add to this list, but who do you think we'll be adding in season 5? Tweet us your theories of who will die in season 5 @wewomenUSA
