7. Everything that was the Red Wedding.

HBO

"The Red Wedding is by far the worst thing to ever happen on Game of Thrones. I waited until Seasons 1-6 were out before I even started watching and after the Red Wedding, I had to quit watching for two months. That scene crushed my spirit in so many ways." —kiiierstynn

9. And what they did to Grey Wind and Robb's bodies.

HBO

"Everyone getting slaughtered at the Red Wedding was bad enough, but them cutting off Grey Wind's head and attaching it to Robb's body to parade around was fucked up." —Jeremiah Rosen, Facebook

14. When Jaime rapes* Cersei next to Joffrey's dead body.

HBO

"Lots of fucked up shit on GoT, but I cringed when Jaime basically raped his sister next to the coffin of their dead incest bastard." —tgoffena2411

*The Game of Thrones creators claim this scene was meant to be consensual, but for much of the audience it appears very much non-consensual.

19. When Daenerys set fire to the Khals.

HBO

"'You are small men. None of you are fit to lead the Dothraki. But I am, so I will.' I mean COME ON! I know she's proved herself time and time again, but that scene literally solidified her seat on the Iron Throne." —Erica Antonello, Facebook

20. When Jon Snow was nearly trampled to death by his own men.

HBO

"Every time I watch the Battle of The Bastards, I find myself getting claustrophobic. It's hard to breathe as Jon Snow is getting buried under bodies. It's hard to watch." —g41215b4f0

23. When Tommen killed himself.

HBO

"Tommen's death was completely unexpected for me. At that point it was pretty much confirmed that Cersei was gonna blow up King's Landing, but I audibly gasped when Tommen stepped out of the window. His death wasn't the most graphic, but definitely one of the most shocking." —cindyfolefack
