While there is no shortage of Game of Thrones characters who made terrible decisions, some choices are definitively worse than others. While these make for some of the best episodes of Game of Thrones, it's hard not to cringe when looking back at some of these life-altering - and in some cases, life-ending - choices.

So many brutal Game of Thrones deaths could have been easily avoided with some less reactive decision-making on the characters' parts. Think about it: what would have happened if the Starks never left Winterfell? Or if Stannis never trusted the Red Woman? Or if Robb had just married into the Frey family as promised instead of following his dumb heart?

Between pivitol plot points and characters you might've forgotten about, the families of Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen, Lannister, Martell, Greyjoy, Tully, Tyrell, and Arryn have all made some really terrible, damning decisions, plummeting Westeros and beyond into bloody wars, chaotic politics, and mass scale deaths.
