Game of Thrones (based on A Song of Ice and Fire) is a show we all loved for quite a while, full of dragons, fun, adventure, loneliness, cursing, and good food. (Also, a lot of incest. Just so much incest.) But after the show ended, we all kinda snapped out of the fever, due to the creators failing at their job so hard they lost a Star Wars trilogy. But with a new show on the way, and a video game coming out (probably, who knows), it's time to look back at the show that captivated the 2010s -- the show that was with us from before the Mayan Apocalypse to during the Apocalypse. Here's a look back at the characters we all loved... and the sometimes, often, terrible ways their stories ended in the eighth season. Eh, give it like 30 years and we'll have a brand-new Game of Thrones series to love and then hate.
