While many of the characters on HBO's Game of Thrones had important things to say during their time on the show, some of the words uttered at the end of their lives hold the most sway. Many of Game of Thrones characters's famous last words might be surprising, but most are pretty telling as their final words were often spoken moments before death.
Granted, some of the last words spoken by GoT characters were said long before they died on screen, they stand as a lasting reminder of the people who make up this incredible world. This list highlights the main characters from the series who have died, but characters who were resurrected won't be featured, so don't expect to hear the final lines from the Lord Commander just yet on this list.
*Because this list deals with character deaths, if you aren't completely caught up, beware of SPOILERS ahead!
"I'd hate to die like your son clawing at my neck, foam and bile spilling from my mouth, eyes blood red, skin purple. It must have been horrible for you as a Kingsguard, as a father. It was horrible enough for me. A shocking scene. Not at all what I intended. You see, I'd never seen the poison work before. Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me."
"You know nothing, Jon Snow."
"What do we say to the God of Death?"
"I hope I deserve this. Truly, I do. I hope I'm wrong. Goodbye, old friend."
"On my honor as a Tully, on my honor as a Stark, let him go or I will cut your wife’s throat!"
"This was my home for many years. I wish you good fortune in the wars to come."
"Go on, do your duty."
"Wait. Are you dying? No, no, no. You can't die yet. You haven't confessed. Say it. Say her name. Elia Martell. You r*ped her. You killed her children. Elia Martell. Who gave you the order? Who gave you the order?! Say her name! You r*ped her! You murdered her! You killed her children. Say it. Say her name. Say it!"
"No, l must ride."
"Protect the gate!"
"Lift your swords." (in Dothraki)
"We break the wheel together."
"You shot me. You’re no son of mine."
"Egg! Egg.. I dreamed... that I was old..."
"Mother, don’t do this please! Please help! Don’t do this! Please, father! Mother, help!"
"I had a choice, Lord Commander. Betray you or betray the Night's Watch. You brought an army of wildlings into our lands. An army of murderers and raiders. If I had do it all over knowing where I'd end up, I pray I'd make the right choice again. I fought, I lost. Now I rest. But you, Lord Snow, you'll be fighting their battles forever."
"Nothing else matters. Only us."
"Sit. Down! Down! Down! Down! Down!"
"I am Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Hand of the King. I come before you to confess my treason in the sight of Gods and men. I betrayed the faith of my King and the trust of my friend Robert. I swore to protect and defend his children, but before his blood was cold I plotted to murder his son and seize the Throne for myself. Let the High Septon and Baelor the Blessed bear witness to what I say: Joffrey Baratheon is the one true heir to the Iron Throne, by the grace of all the Gods, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm."
"I know about you and Mother. I think a part of me always knew. And I'm glad. I'm glad that you're my father."
