Popular TV Shows – Game of Thrones

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.”

Those words were spoken by Cersei Lannister in the first season of the popular TV show Game of Thrones. And after three seasons, one thing is clear: a lot of people die.

Famous Killed-Off Game of Thrones Characters – Ned Stark (most of the Starks, really), Khal Drogo, Viserys Targaryan

game-of-thrones-characters-popular-tv-showsYes, Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV shows out there, and it has a reputation for killing off major, fan-favorite characters. When you end the first season by beheading your protagonist, you send a very clear message that none of the Game of Thrones characters are safe.

The show nearly crashed the internet, last season, with its “Red Wedding” episode that killed off Robb Stark (son of the aforementioned, deceased protagonist), along with Robb’s wife, his mother and his pet direwolf — all central famous Game of Thrones characters.

It was one of the most talked about TV episodes of 2013, and the popular TV show is certain to kill off plenty more Game of Thrones characters in season 4.
