10. Joffrey's First Personal Kill
We knew Joffrey was sadistic, but Season 3 finally gave us proof, when a devious Littlefinger found out that Ros was spying on him for Varys. In the end he gave her to King Joffrey, who tied her to the bed and used her for live target practice. R.I.P. Ros, we hardly knew you!
9. Jaime, Brienne, And A Bear
Season 3 gave us one of our favorite duos -- Brienne and Jaime who we learned would die for one another. Following an unsuccessful attempt to ransom Brienne to her father, Locke threw her into a gladiator pit with a bear and only a wooden sword to defend herself. Ever the galant Jaime jumped into the pit to protect her and with the help of Steelshanks, the two made it out alive.
8. Talisa's Gruesome Murder
Everyone knew this marriage was never meant to be, but Talisa Stark paid the first of many prices at the Red Wedding. During the celebration Lothar Frey repeatedly stabbed Talisa in the stomach, killing her unborn child, and resulting in her death. Despite his own wounds Robb crawled towards Talisa and embraced her, even in his death throes.
7. Ygritte And Jon Snow Atop The Wall
As Jon and the wildlings climbed the wall, Ygritte inadvertently caused a large crack in the ice. Jon grabbed their safety rope, but Orell cut it and Jon barely managed to pull himself and Ygritte to safety. When they finally reached the top of the wall, they shared a passionate kiss, happy to still be alive.
6. Grey Wind's Death
Robb's direwolf Grey Wind accompanied Robb to the wedding of Roslin Frey and Edmure Tully, but when the Freys and Boltons turned on the Starks, Grey Wind was shot several times with a crossbow. R.I.P. Grey Wind!
