Best scene in game of thrones?

Post by Ellafan »

There are many candidates. Arya and the Frey pie. The mountain squashing the Dorn guy's head. That smug prick the High Sparrow's 'Oops' moment, to name a few.

But for me, it was Sansa feeding that shit Ramsey to his own dogs.

This probably needs a poll.

Not a scene as such, but the last ten minutes or so of the Hardhome episode was my favourite.

Back when the show was still at the top of its game

Favourite scene was probably the Walder Frey pie scene. Plenty to choose from though

The one that you mention was the first that came to my mind as well.

However the most memorable for the wrong reasons was the castration

I was just going to say, if anyone says the best scene in GOT was "the mountain squashing that guy's head", then that person would have to be a bit f**ked up in the head.

The best scene was The Battle of the Bastards. EOT.

I have a few GOT scenes that I really like. But the one scene that sticks out for me, is in season 3 when Daenerys reveals to the slave owner that Valyrian is her first language just before unleashing the fury. She can leave her shoes under my bed anytime.

"Even in war, for most of the people, most of the time, nothing happens".

Not a fully accurate quote probably, but I loved that bit. Essentially the writers taking the piss with themselves.

Probably Ned losing his head in Season 1. Hardhome is a good shout too.

We rewatched them all reasonably recently and the decline of the show from Season 5 onwards is noticable. Seasons 1, 2 and 3 are superb.

Erm ... some of the earliest Emilia Clarke scenes were probably the most memorable

This. Brutal change in the story, without decrease in quality (notwithstanding the controversy of the rushed last season). :shock:

Two that stand out for me are

1 Arya not being overawed by Tywin Lannister at Harennhal

The Hound had some good moments - like when Lemoncloak's gang killed all the hippies....

This was brilliant, it genuinely had hair standing on the back of my neck. Having read the books I knew a lot of the other scenes being mentioned were coming.

I think it was the last genuinely great moment in the show.

Of course the moment itself is ruined because of what came later. What was the f**king point in Hodor's sacrafice? Literally achieved nothing.

I would have been happy with a spin off series called 'The Adventures of Arya and the Hound'.

Yeah one scene. It was the best battle I've seen on screen. Aided by the fact that there's a possibility the bad guys could've won as per GoT style.

I feel we're only talking about GoT now because it took a longtime to get over how shit/unemotional the ending was. Was it the producers' fault or everyone had just speculated and discussed all the possible endings that it was no longer a surprise?

Frey pie was one of the hammiest scenes.

Another scene I really enjoyed was the very first scene of season 1, episode 1, when two of the night's watch encounter a White Walker. That one scene held my attention for the whole first season, and provoked a great sense of foreboding that 'winter is coming'.

I read the book a couple years later, and the scene described in the book was just as suspenseful!

Yeah but it all ended in one episode which was disappointing. I wished the Walkers could've atleast made it to KL.

Yeah, that would have been cool. My three favourite TV shows of all time, GOT being one of them, all had disappointing endings. What a journey through the seasons though.

Yeah when the Hound and Tormund were discussing Brienne was probably the funniest scene in the whole series.

Personally I thought the Battle of the Bastards was terrible and part of the whole decline of the series. Whole thing went on way too long.

The bit I enjoyed was when the dead overrun the wildlings, and they just manage to make it onto the boat to escape.

They did a good job of turning the source material in to a series - a REALLY good job.

Once the source material ran out, they proved not capable of finishing it to the same standard.

Blowing up of the sept/pycelle's murder/tommen's suicide

Very well done and a cracking score underlining it
