“What do we say to the god of death?” “Not today.”
Today, we will be celebrating the best of Game of Thrones season 5’s death scenes. Death is a constant presence on Game of Thrones, and the show has made an art of its presentation. Hardly an episode goes by without at least one character meeting their end, and this season was packed with powerful and shocking death scenes.
After a round of voting, we’ve narrowed down the initial list of contenders (preliminary round results here) to a stellar top 5.
The nominees are:
- Janos Slynt loses his head for refusing Jon’s orders – Watch the scene
- Jon Snow dies…for the Watch – Watch the scene
- Maester Aemon dies a natural death, calling for his little brother – Watch the scene
- Meryn Trant is finally crossed off Arya’s list – Watch the scene
- The sacrifice of Shireen Baratheon – Watch the scene
In the finals, unlike the preliminaries, fans have one vote to cast, and 48 hours to make their decision and vote.
You also have one more day to vote on Best Dramatic Scene and Best Comedic Scene of season 5!
The final round polls will be open for 48 hours: Death Scene beginning now and running until 9/27/15 at 12PM EDT. The results will be revealed at the Watchers On The Wall Awards ceremony in a few weeks time!
