One stands at a point in time wherein one is considered to be living under a rock if the person hasn’t watched Game of Thrones during the entire years of their existence. Currently filming their eighth and final season, the HBO original show based on George R.R. Martin’s novels of the fictional world of Westeros takes the planet by storm every year it airs, inciting discussions, spoiler wars, or just fans gasping for breath over an explosive twist or an unexpected death. It doesn’t come as a surprise then that GoT still remains one of the most watched and loved shows the world over, and for right reason.
The show boasts of top-notch production values, easily rivaling many films, and an impressive ensemble of cast members, some well-known, and some who struck gold gaining wider recognition through the show. While picking the 10 best episodes from a gamut of excellent ones spanning over 7 years is a tough job, we attempted it, and the episodes so chosen are brilliant in every aspect one could think of, giving some large studio produced films a run for their money. Undoubtedly, Game of Thrones has escalated TV viewing experiences and upped the ante for what TV shows are meant to accomplish.
Without further ado, here is the list of top episodes of Game of Thrones. Let the giddy excitement and nostalgia from when your favourite character was alive fill you up.
10. The Mountain and the Viper
‘The Mountain and The Viper’ remains one of the most heartbreaking episodes of the entire series for me, in the same league as the Red Wedding, albeit not as devastating. However, little justice is served when it is George R.R. Martin’s world. It is perhaps the only episode in this list that is not as uniform or spectacular as the others, yet it finds a spot her because of its final ten minutes. Oberyn Martell was a character one could easily fall in love with and endear to, played with much swagger by Pedro Pascal.
