Road to season 6: Best Scene (season 5 edition)

Only 56 days to go.. The wait is getting shorter and shorter and in the meantime we’re going to discuss the best aspects about Game of Thrones. We already discussed the best character, which was Tyrion Lannister. The best episode of Game of Thrones is Hardhome, of course. Now, we’re going to look for the best scene in Game of Thrones.

 

The 10 best scenes of Game of Thrones

10. Daenerys sacrifices Mirri Maz Duur and Drogo in order to give birth to her Dragons (s01e10)

When? During the last episode of Game of Thrones season 1.

Why so important? Daenerys proved that magic is still of great value in the world. Now, that she possesses 3 dragons, she’d probably be one of the most powerful leaders out there. Perhaps she’ll repeat history and conquer Westeros on the back of her largest dragon.

On a scale of epicness: 8/10

9. Ned Stark’s execution (s01e09)

When? During the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones’ first season.

Why so important? The death of Ned Stark symbolizes the begin of the War of the Five Kings, which lasted for 4 seasons. Ned Stark was the main character during season 1 and the representation of ‘honor’ itself. Since then it was clear which direction Game of Thrones would go.

8. The King in the North (s01e10)

When? During the last episode of Game of Thrones’ first season.

Why so important? House Stark declares war against House Lannister. This storyline has become one of the main themes of Thrones. The war against the Lannisters only lasted for 2 seasons. It’s clear that towards the end of the series, House Stark will have won the war and not House Lannister.

7. Chaos isn’t a pit, chaos is a ladder (s03e06)

When? During the sixth episode of Game of Thrones’ third season.

Why so important? The most cunning character of Game of Thrones reveals his strategy. He causes chaos (e.g: killing Jon Arryn and blaming the Lannisters) and tries to climb the ladder each time he causes chaos. Littlefinger is one of the very few characters whose power and influence grows as the series progresses.

6. Jaime recounts King Aerys’s madness. (s03e05)

When? During the fifth episode of Game of Thrones’ third season.

Why so important? From this scene on, Jaime started to evolve into a more sympathetic character. We learn that he isn’t an evil character at all, but only misunderstood. He explains why he has killed the Mad King: not for glory or recognition but to save the people of Westeros and his own father. Still he’s considered a kingslayer.

5. The Red Viper fights the Mountain (s04e08)

When? During the episode eight of Game of Thrones’ fourth season.

Why so important? Oberyn Martell can finally avenge the death of his sister, Elia Martell, by killing the murderer and raper of Elia: the Mountain. First, Oberyn needs a confession from the Mountain. He needs to know who the order gave. At the end, the Mountain confesses that he raped and killed Elia and therefore also the involvement of Tywin Lannister. Oberyn faces a gruesome death, but not before having the Mountain confessed his crimes. A war between the Martells and the Lannisters has started!

4. The Night’s King raises his Army of the Death (s05e08)

When? During the episode eight of Game of Thrones’ fifth season.

Why so important? The Night’s King reveals himself to Jon Snow. He shows his power in an epic stand-off. The war against the Night’s King and his army is one of the main storylines in Game of Thrones. We’ll definitely see the conclusion of this epic war during the very last episodes of Thrones..

3. Jon Snow kills a White Walker (s05e08)

When? During the episode eight of Game of Thrones’ fifth season.

Why so important? Jon Snow fights against a White Walker and kills him with his Valyrian sword. The fact that he could kill a White Walker with a valyrian sword is one of the key elements of the show. Westeros knows how to defeat the biggest threat out there: the White Walkers and its impressive army.

2. The Red Wedding: Talisa, Robb and Catelyn’s tragic deaths (s03e09)

When? During the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones’ third season.

Why so important?  The biggest twist in the show to date is The infamous Red Wedding. The death of the two Starks symbolize the downfall of House Stark in a very gruesome way. The Red Wedding is also notorious for being the show’s most shocking moment. And shocking moments are Game of Thrones’ trademark…

1.’I demand a trial by combat’. (s04e06)

When? During the sixth episode of Game of Thrones’ third season.

Why so important? Tyrion Lannister’s trial is considered to be the best moment in the show. Peter Dinklage is responsible for that. His acting skills and emotions during this scene were captivating .Tyron slowly evolves into a broken man with a strong hatred towards his own father who disgusts him because of his size. The decision to have a trial by combat eventually leads to the death of Oberyn and Tywin and most importantly: the alliance between Daenerys and Tyrion.
