No, not Allied...

Game Of Thrones may be the most surprising shows of all time.
No other TV show has ever killed as many characters. No other show has ever changed the rules so drastically throughout the series.
No other show has inspired such emotional fan reactions!
10. Bran Takes A Fall
GoT doesn't mess around, and they proved that by ending the very first episode letting you believe that little Bran had been killed for seeing something he shouldn't have.
9. The Battle Of Blackwater
The most expensive episode to date, the battle saw Tyrion's injury, changes in allegiance, and the biggest green explosions you've ever seen!
8. Ygritte's Arrow To The Heart
The poor girl was always on the wrong side of the wall, but Jon Snow loved her, so watching her die was still pretty sad. They should have stayed in the cave.
7. The Smoke Baby
Melisandre showed everyone that magic was real, and that dark magic was the realest of all by giving birth to an evil shadow! That smoke monster on LOST has NOTHING on this creepy killer!
6. Tywin Lannister's Father's Day Present
Tyrion finally escapes, but not before he goes back to murder his traitorous ex and his interminably cruel father. Well, we SAY interminably, but…
5. Daenerys Hatches Her Babies
Dany survived the fire, and so did her three eggs! And as Season 1 ended, GoT went from being a show without dragons to a show WITH dragons.
4. The Purple Wedding
The boy king everyone loved to hate suffered a violent assassination by poison, and fans have never cheered for regicide more. At least we hope…
3. The Viper vs. The Mountain
This fight will stick in fans' heads for years to come, both for its sudden twist ending and its unrivaled brutality.
2. Ned Stark's Execution
This is the moment that told everyone, this is not the show where the heroes get saved at the last minute. Star Sean Bean's onscreen beheading set the precedent: no one is safe.
1. The Red Wedding
The betrayal of Robb Stark at his uncle's wedding was possibly the most heartbreaking - and stabbing - moment in TV history.
