How They Died: Shot with many arrows by Joffrey
Ros was a new character not mentioned in the books (although she was based on a red-headed whore who WAS mentioned), and everyone was taken in by her combination of smarts and sass. When Joffery used her for target practice in Season 3 it made us hate him even more. If that was even possible.
11. Robert Baratheon
How They Died: Gored by a boar
A boorish man dies at the hands of a boar, a more fitting death could not be written. You get the sense that Robert could have been a good King if not for Cersei and the Lannisters, one of their many injustices.
10. Renly Baratheon
How They Died: Stabbed by a smoke creature
Renly was so adorable and would have made a pretty good King, even if he was having an affair with his wife’s brother. But he really didn’t deserve to die at the hands of Melisandre’s creepy smoke demon.
9. Jeor Mormont
How They Died: Stabbed by a member of the Night’s Watch
The Old Bear was a good man who shouldn’t have been murdered by his own men in Craster’s creepy Hut O’ Horrors, but in Game of Thrones, no one really gets what they deserve.
2. Ned Stark
How They Died: Beheaded
Did ANYONE see that coming? In the books or on the show, when has the central character ever just been killed off in the first season? Probably never, which is why Ned’s death really revealed how little George R.R. Martin actually cares about our feelings.
1. Catelyn Stark
How They Died: Show with arrows, throat slit
Catelyn Stark could just not win. First her son is paralyzed, her sister goes crazy, then her husband gets murdered, then her daughters are held captive, then her father dies, and THEN SHE HAS TO WATCH HER SON MURDERED RIGHT BEFORE HER EVERY EYES. Yikes.
