Top Ten Saddest Game of Thrones Deaths

The Top Ten

1 Ned Stark Ned Stark

Well at least he can say he really went for it

His death made me want to cry

It's Sean Bean, and it's the most humane lord in Westeros... I never thought my heart could ache so much for a fictional character's death...

Nice guy

2 Hodor Hodor

His entire life from like age 15 revolved around this one moment, this one job, and he did it. He held the door. I actually cried watching this.

This one made me cry today

Hold the door!

Fully sobbed watching this - pjo

4 Shireen Baratheon Shireen Baratheon

For me, the only death in Game of Thrones which was hard to watch.

This was absolutely heartbreaking - pjo

This scene made me cry. I hated Melisandre because of this,even if she sabed jon snow

5 Oberyn Martell Oberyn Martell

Best character in show

6 Catelyn Stark Catelyn Stark

The entire Red Wedding was shown from her point of view and she saw her son die in front of her...

So sad and brutal. She did everything for her family.

trash - pjo

7 Lady Talisa Lady Talisa

For me, her death was the most brutal, painful and beastly to see. She was not my favorite character, but I became fond of her. Regardless if Robb was immature and reckless and has somehow caused this infamous incident, It's as sad and tragic as moments before, she and Robb were dreaming about their son or daughter, so moments later she is brutally stabbed in the womb several times, and bleeds to death before the Robb's eyes. Every knife's stroke she received struck deep my soul. It took me hours to recover from this scene. - Palmeiras

A bride so I give it all

8 Jon Snow Jon Snow Jon Snow is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

It's weird but I'm glad he's dead. His story reached an end yet the show must go on. He was my fave character though, RIP Lord Commander. - Mitchoo22

Actually, not really fake death, but he was resurrected - invinciblemario99

...fake death! I'm so happy too, I love Jon Snow - invinciblemario99

MOST SADDEST CHARACTER EVER.
Fun fact: Kit got the role because the producers were convinced he looked sad enough to be Jon Snow.
