Showing Rapes and Incest, why Game of Thrones is the most controversial show ever aired!
Game of Thrones marks ten years since it first aired in 2011.
As both the highly loved and controversial television series Game of Thrones marks ten years since it first aired in 2011, we revisit some of the most talked about plot twists in the series.
Game of Thrones, the American fantasy drama was famous for its abrupt plot twist.
Here are our top picks.
Sansa Starks rape by Ramsay
Burning of Mance Rayder
Mance Rayder or "the King Beyond The Wall," had a very strong characterisation in the book where he is not killed off but decoy is burnt. It was done using Melisandre’s magic to disguise himself as another wildling leader called "Rattleshirt."
In the TV series however he is killed and his characterisation is also not strong enough.
Jamie raping Cersi
Burning Of Shireen by Stannis
Stannis, despite being a cold character, was close to his daughter Shireen. From season 3 onwards we could see his love for her. So when he decides to burn her to capture Winterfell, it doesn't go down well with the fans. Also, this plot twist is an aberration from the book version, where Shireen doesn’t die.
