Best Game of Thrones Episodes

The Top Ten

1 The Winds of Winter

When we thought this episode would be a bit underwhelming compared to Battle of the Bastards, Game of Thrones tops it and produces it's best episode yet, completely changing the game in the process. - lewiswollington

Will be hard to move up list due to the other episode headstart on the voting. Without a doubt one of the best episodes on any T.V. show ever. Number two and three for GOT in my humble opinion being A tie of Rain and Battle of Bastards.

The score simplistic as it was produced such emotional suspense.

The best GOT episode. BOTB was tough to beat, MM was tough to beat, Hardhome and Blackwater, And Now His Watch Has Ended, all easily top picks. But, this is the perfect episode. It has it all. It is spectacular.

2 The Rains of Castamere

Funny how the top 3 episodes were all 9th episodes of their season.

Wow, all I'm saying...

Have you heard Jackie Evancho's version of this song?
It is just spooky. She so good.

In reply to theperson that compared Game of Thrones to Porn Hub, it is undoubtly the best T.V. show ever- its rated 9.5 on IMDb. Anybody who thinks differently should just stay quiet.

3 Battle of The Bastards

The death of Ramsay Bolton is enough for me to call this episode the best one of all...

The most intense episode yet! - invinciblemario99

Busted a nut while watching. 6/10 would recommend

4 Hardhome

Coolest Sword fight of the show

Best episode the series!

Night King Badass - Glauberson

Best episode in the show and second ever, only Ozymandias from Breaking Bad can beat this episode

5 Blackwater

I think this was the first time I was really watching with my mouth open. After this one, it's impossible to quit GoT.

A straight up masterpiece. $8 million well spent!

Stannis is my favorite since this episode

Come on! Tyrion was intense.

6 The Children
7 The Spoils of War

I really hope Jaime and Bronn aren't dead. As much as I love Emilia Clarke, having dragons is such a cheat code. - IronSabbathPriest

8 The Watchers on the Wall

An intense battle - Mitchoo22

Exclusive nights watch episode
With all the action
And jon ygritee closure gives a deep impact

9 Baelor

If Ned Stark didn't die, the story wouldn't move in an interesting direction.

The one where Ned Stark gets beheaded.

10 The Mountain and the Viper

This was the icing on the cake after Joffrey's death. This Battle was intense, entertaining, and it had the most jaw-dropping moment in the series, besides Ned's death.

S4 was the best, and this was the climax. After the first 7 episodes established a main story more focused than any other plotline except for Ned Stark, we got a series of events which flowed seamlessly, and finally leading Oberyn to become Tyrion's champion. At this point, we thought we were going to get a happy ending; Oberyn had literally knocked down the mountain and was torturing him. But then we got GoT's most shocking twist yet, when Oberyn gets killed out of nowhere. The only death that could come close to this one in terms of unexpectedness and poignancy was that of Robb, Catelyn, and Talisa. Amazing.

The Contenders

11 The Lion and the Rose

I could watch Joffery slowly choking to death all day.

Joffrey dies... enough said!

I loved every bit of this episode. Watching Joffery choked to death game me extemre pleasure.

12 The Laws of God and Men

Honestly? Aside from Tyrion's trial (which WAS an awesome scene), there's not that much to that episode compared to the others. I'd say a high ranking is fine, but definitely not top 10. - tonyb500

Tyrions trial man! Wow that was in-chuffing-tense

The trial was the best scene in the entire series. Unjustice after unjustice... - alimarashian

13 The Door

Hodor's death is heartbreaking - jarjar36

14 The Dragon and the Wolf

"I loved how writers convince you about something several times in this episode, but in the end it is the exact opposite - pure perfection! "

The best from this season and one the most satisfying yet frightening episode in the entire series. - juan101

Best episode yet after spoils of war and hardhome

15 Winter Is Coming

Come on guys, this was the beginning of total epicness.

Beside nothing can be compared to the first episode because first episodes usually indicates whether the series is good or no.

This was a awesome pilot that got people hooked

The first Game of Thrones episode.

16 And Now His Watch Is Ended

Ygritt says, You Know Nothing.. Jon Snow

So much went down in this episode " the Lord Commander bites it! " but really, it all comes down to one word:

17 Beyond the Wall

Worst episode ever

'Beyond the Wall' is the best episode so far in the series. The episode changed a lot of fan theories and speculations. And the wight dragon of course! Although the scene is sad and devastating, it showed us how the Night King can be a real major threat to the seven kingdoms. 11/10 to this great episode.
And Jon Snow bent the knee (sort of)

Ice dragon!

18 Valar Morghulis
19 The Dance of Dragons
20 Mother's Mercy

So many deaths, that ending too!

21 Mockingbird
22 Fire And Blood

The one where the dragons hatch.

25 Stormborn
26 The Climb
27 Home
