Game Of Thrones most powerful moments.
With every amazing show, there comes moments where you stare at your screen in utter amazement or with tears filling your eyes. With shows like Game Of Thrones, you experience a roller coaster of emotions, both good and bad. But you also have the moments that define the show. The moments where you feel at loss for words. You have to sit there and take it all in and reevaluate everything that has just happened. These are my moments that made you get goosebumps, or even scream at your screen. If you’re not caught up, here’s your SPOILER WARNING.
Lets start with a strong one.
The Battle of the Bastards.
When all hope is lost. And you’re backed into a corner. Then you hear the horns. In charge the Knights of the Veil. The music. The build up. The suspense. “Surely Jon can’t die again right?” The moment still hits me even though I’ve seen it countless times. Also shortly after when Jon, Wun Wun, and Tormund chase Ramsey back to Winterfell. I remember screaming at my TV ‘’GET HIM GET HIM’’
“Promise me Ned”
Oh man, the feels. This is such a beautiful and perfect transition. From the music and long over due build up of the finish of this flashback. We are were waiting for the reveal of Jon’s true parentage and this was the probably the best way they could’ve possibly done that. Right when the camera goes from baby Jon to current Jon and the dramatic music hits…. goosebumps.
“Flee you fucking idiot”
This one is just awesome. This was that battle who you didn’t really want anyone to die. Tyrion’s commentary just made this so much bad ass. Jaime has been on this redemption arc ever since season 2, and for a solid 5 seconds I thought he was going to either wound Daenerys or die. And what a way to go out. I give him the ‘’fuck it I got this’’ award.
Hold the Door.
This one is tough. Hodor was one of my favorite characters. And I usually watch episodes twice before the next one airs and this was the only one I couldn’t watch twice. Sad. Powerful. And it just shows how our favorite friendly giant got his name and talk.
Jon vs White Walker
This is arguably the best episode in the series. And I was like “WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED.’’ While we see the the White Walker just destroy and shatter regular weapons, when Jon actually kills him with Long Claw, I sat there with my mouth open. The sound Long Claw makes when it collides with the White Walkers weapon was soothing. This is then followed by the Night King raising all the fallen Wildlings and hitting you with an even more ‘’What the fuck did I just watch’’ moment.
There is surely more to be added to this list. Specially some moments from next episode.. ;-) And of course you could throw in Neds beheading, the red wedding, Jon being stabbed. But everyone has dissected and discussed this millions of times over and I wanted to do my personal choices for powerful moments.
