The best death in “Game of Thrones”? The show’s creators chose

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the showrunners of “Game of Thrones” (you can currently watch their new series “Three-Body Problem” on Netflix), were recently asked about their favorite death in the series. And as you might expect, the task wasn’t easy, considering “Game of Thrones” is known for its multitude of surprising and spectacular deaths. But still, there were two deaths that particularly stuck in their minds.

The creators of “Game of Thrones” chose their favorite death in the series.

Responding to a journalist’s question on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, Weiss began with words that are hard to disagree with:

“In ‘Game of Thrones,’ there were so many killings of good people. But in the end, we managed to kill both Joffrey in Season 4 and Ramsay Bolton in Season 6. It was like returning to the old-school pleasure of killing really bad characters.”

As we know, Ramsay Bolton was one of the cruelest characters in “Game of Thrones,” so his death by being eaten by dogs, as Weiss says, was walking a fine line in terms of good taste.

Benioff agreed with Weiss about killing Bolton, adding:

“You don’t really see that death. You see something in the background, but you don’t really have it in front of your eyes. We only see Sophie [Turner]’s smile. It was a scene shot in one take; we did about seven takes. She nailed it on the seventh or eighth try, and it was just an incredible feeling. Sophie was so good. When we got it, I felt like I could die happy now.”
