Here Are The Saddest Game of Thrones Deaths, Ranked
King’s Landing (S8E5)
Okay, so King’s Landing isn’t exactly a character. But there were a lot of deaths and they were all very shocking and very sad. Daenerys and Drogon took to the skies to attack King’s Landing, but rather than just burn down the Red Keep where Cersei was, or even have her armies simply fight the opposing army, she set fire to everything. Countless innocent civilians died in the fires. Jon Snow’s expression watching Grey Worm and his Unsullied army continue to attack a surrendering army just for the hell of it was rough. So was Arya Stark’s watching women and children get slaughtered in the streets.
