Hodor’s dramatic death scene had fans in tears in season 6 of Game Of Thrones. 

Popular show Game Of Thrones wrapped up season 6 with what potentially was a TRP-topping finale. And what a season it was. From the return of Jon Snow to Cersei finally sitting on the Iron Throne, fans had a lot to take in over 10 episodes. Now, as the long wait for season 7 begins, we look back at the 10 moments that got almost everyone talking.

‘Hold the door’ In a shocking twist, we saw the much-loved Hodor die, and the explanation for his much-debated name was revealed. The dramatic death scene had fans in tears and was probably the most heart-breaking since the Red Wedding.

Jon Snow and Sansa Stark’s reunion brought much cheer to fans of the show.

As revenge for all that he put her through, Sansa Stark fed Ramsay Bolton to his hounds.

A fitting end
The Knights of the Vale rode in to save the day in the penultimate episode. Jon Snow won back Winterfell. Wun Wun fell. But what won the Internet over was Sansa Stark getting her long-overdue revenge when she fed Ramsay Bolton to his hounds. Her smile at the end said it all.

Lady Mormont won hearts with her sass and her rousing speech in the season finale.

‘The north remembers’
One of the show’s breakout characters this season was Lady Mormont of Bear Island. Whether it was her giving sass to Jon Snow and Sansa Stark, a death stare to Ramsay Bolton on the battlefield or a rousing speech to rally support to make Jon the King of the North, netizens could not get enough of this 10-year-old. 

Cersei Lannister, the first of her name, finally sat on the Iron Throne.

‘Long live the queen’
The action-packed finale saw Cersei Lannister blow up the Sept, kill the High Sparrow, Margaery and Loras Tyrell, and Tommen jump out the window to his death. But what sent chills down everyone’s spine was Cersei sitting on the Iron Throne. God save Westeros.

The show’s creators insisted he was dead, but Jon Snow was resurrected from the dead in season 6.

Back from the dead
His death was debated for nearly a year, but Jon Snow’s return was on expected lines. Fans were not surprised when he was resurrected from the dead in the second episode itself, even though the show’s creators had insisted that he would not return. 

Arya Stark of Winterfell ticked off more names from her list this season.

Arya’s revenge 
Arya Stark’s quest to become no one did not go as planned, but she did acquire the skills to tick names off her list. The finale saw the young assassin taking out Walder Frey and his sons to avenge the Red Wedding. 

Season 6 also saw Brandon Stark meet the Night’s King for the first time.

Bran meets the Night’s King
Time travel has its consequences. Brandon Stark learnt it the hard way when his unsupervised journey resulted in a face-to-face encounter with the Night’s King. The end result was the death of the Three-Eyed Raven, the Children of the Forest and Hodor, leaving Bran and Meera on the run. 

Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister set sail for Westeros in the finale.

In a fitting end to the finale, Daenerys Targaryen set sail towards Westeros with Tyrion Lannister, the Unsullied, the Dothraki army, Theon and Yara Greyjoy, Varys and her dragons by her side. With alliances with Dorne and the Tyrells in place, fans have much to look forward to when she does reach King’s Landing in season seven. 

The looked-forward-to Tower of Joy sequence finally made its way to the small screen.

Tower of Joy secret revealed 
The much-debated theory had its big reveal. Brandon Stark followed his father, Ned Stark, to the Tower of Joy to find his aunt Lyanna in a pool of blood, having given birth to a son. The next scene featured Jon Snow, hinting that he is the child. Fans have long believed Jon to be the son of Lyanna and Rhaegar Targaryen.
