20 Most Frustrating “Game Of Thrones” Moments Ever

421

1. Sansa lying about the attack on Joffrey

Joffrey was basically a bully to the butcher’s boy, so Arya and Nymeria put him down. Sansa lied about it, later on, Her lies resulted in Lady being killed. If she told the truth, Lady and Nymeria might’ve gotten more time.

(Season 1, Episode 2: “The Kingsroad”)

2. Cersei ordering Lady to die.

Cersei ordered Lady to die once no one was going to get punished for Joffrey’s attack. If Sansa told the truth, perhaps this wouldn’t have happened.

(Season 1, Episode 2: “The Kingsroad”)

3. Ned keeping Cersei’s incest a secret from Robert.

Ned should’ve told Robert about Cersei and Jaime’s incest once he learned of it. Because he kept it a secret, it ultimately resulted in his death and Robert’s, and everyone else’s since it set the war in motion.

(Season 1, Episode 7: “You Win or You Die”)

4. Theon betraying Robb.


Theon betrayed Robb for his father. Not only was Balon never thankful, he didn’t even try to rescue him later when he got captured. Theon betraying Robb resulted in the Starks losing Winterfell until Season 6. Karma bit him in the ass later though, he redeemed himself by helping Sansa escape and denouncing his claim in favor of his sister Yara.

(Season 2, Episode 2: “The Night Lands”)

5. Catelyn setting Jaime free.


Catelyn was a frustrating character, but one of the worst things she did was set Jaime free in exchange for her daughters. It was a emotional move to let such a highly prized prisoner go, even Robb realized that.

(Season 2, Episode 7: “A Man Without Honor”)

6. Robb marrying Talisa instead of a Frey.

Robb backing out on his word to marry a Frey was ultimately his biggest mistake. Instead he married Talisa, a decision which resulted in the Red Wedding. It was a decision that was emotional for his character.

(Season 2, Episode 10: “Valar Morghulis”)

7. Theon not going with Yara.

By the time Yara got to Theon, Ramsay had successfully made him Reek. It was frustrating to see him choose to stay, instead of returning with his sister. It was sad to see Theon as Reek.

(Season 4, Episode 6: “The Laws of Gods and Men”)

8. Oberyn not killing the Mountain when he had the chance.

Oberyn was smart, handsome, and charismatic — just the type the show likes to kill off. It was so frustrating to see a moment of revenge and satisfaction snatched from us due to Oberyn needing to hear certain words.

(Season 4, Episode 8: “The Mountain and the Viper”)

9. Sansa not going with Brienne.

The moment when Brienne and Pod finally found one of the Stark girls was quickly crushed by Sansa. The decision to stay with Littlefinger resulted in her marriage, abuse, and torture by Ramsay which was not what she thought would happen.

(Season 5, Episode 2: “The House of Black and White”)

10. Olly ruining… everything.

Not only did he kill Jon’s love, Ygritte, but he was also responsible for luring Jon to his death. It was sadly satisfying to see him hang.

(Season 4, Episode 3: “Breaker of Chains” to Season 6, Episode 3: “Oathbreaker”)

11. The High Sparrow’s existence.


Although initially exciting, the High Sparrow quickly became a detested character. There was something pompous about such a humble man, and all of his scenes soon became least favorites. His death was by far his most exciting scene.

(Season 5, Episode 3: “The High Sparrow” to Season 6, Episode 10: “The Winds of Winter”)

12. The Tower of Joy scene.

When the first flashback of the Tower of Joy came, people were expecting the theory to finally be confirmed, but we all shared in Bran’s disappointment when we were cut short. It definitely made the reveal later more exciting, but it was so cruel of the show to dangle something so enticing, just to pull it away.

(Season 6, Episode 1: “The Red Woman”)

13. Ellaria killing everyone in Dorne.


Ellaria was never as charismatic as Oberyn, but she was strong, witty, and beautiful, so her scenes were still fun to watch. It was annoying that she was too caught up in revenge to have the patience for diplomacy. Her need for revenge led her to kill Prince Doran, Prince Trystane, and Princess Myrcella. Hopefully, she learns some diplomacy and patience by working with Olenna and Daenerys.

(Season 5, Episode 10: “Mother’s Mercy” to Season 6, Episode 1: “The Red Woman”)

14. The Umbers betraying Rickon.

Seeing them turn over Rickon and Osha was frustrating and soul-crushing. No one wanted to believe it, and people were still expecting them to betray Ramsay — until Smalljon’s death.

(Season 6, Episode 3: “Oathbreaker”)

15. Arya getting stabbed.


No one could believe Arya would be stupid enough to flaunt herself around Braavos and get stabbed — especially when she knew the Waif was after her. It was super disappointing when none of the fan theories about her turned out to be true.
(Season 6, Episode 7: “The Broken Man”)

16. Edmure handing over Riverrun.


We saw Edmure walk up and demand to come in. Blackfish knew it, too, but unfortunately the guard gave in. Sure, Jaime had threatened Edmure, but it was still frustrating to see him give in like that.

(Season 6, Episode 8: “No One”)

17. Rickon not running zig-zag.


It was so frustrating to watch Rickon run in a straight line, which was an easy target for Ramsay. While it was made for some beautifully heartbreaking scenes, a few zig-zags might’ve saved his life.

(Season 6, Episode 9: “Battle of the Bastards”)

18. Jon falling into Ramsay’s trap.


The moment Sansa warned Jon not to fall into Ramsay’s trap, we knew that’s exactly what he was going to do. Using Rickon to lure Jon out was smart, but Davos ordering the men to follow Jon into the trap was stupid.

(Season 6, Episode 9: “Battle of the Bastards”)

19. Sansa not telling Jon about the Knights of the Vale.


It was frustrating to see Sansa withhold such important information from Jon. It was clear she had her reasons, but her secret-keeping and schemes that she learned from Littlefinger might’ve been the cause of her downfall.

(Season 6, Episode 9: “Battle of the Bastards”)

20. And Daenerys taking SIX SEASONS to head toward Westeros.

From the first episode, a few big plot points were set into motion: Winter coming, the White Walkers returning, and Daenerys headed West. Thankfully, the Season 6 finale confirmed all of these things were coming to completion. Daenerys’s journey was a bumpy one that went from being the most exciting moments of the episode to the most boring.

(Season 6, Episode 10: “The Winds of Winter”)
