** In the series, [[spoiler: Roose Bolton]] is killed when he is betrayed by [[spoiler:Ramsay]], somebody he thought he could trust, just like how he had originally betrayed [[spoiler:Robb]]. And for bonus points, is killed in exactly the same manner.

* HopeCrusher: [[TortureTechnician Ramsay Snow]] deliberately creates [[HopeSpot Hope Spots]] because he knows shattering the illusion of hope is far more devastating than providing no hope at all. This can be as simple as pouring out water in front of a thirsty man or as complex as [[spoiler: feigning help only to lead the victim back to more torture.]].

** Gendry and Arya are a case where he rules out any potential relationship before it's even begun for this very reason.
--> Gendry: "You wouldn't be my family, you'd be m'lady."



** In Season 1 Sansa is enamored with Prince Joffrey and believes he's her KnightInShiningArmour, while Arya is disgusted by the set up. By Season 2 and 3, Sansa is kept prisoner and relentlessly abused by Joffrey, while Arya's closest friend is a King's son who [[{{TrueCompanions}} mutually protects her]] and has more [[{{HeroicBastard}} knightly]] [[{{NiceGuy}} qualities]] in his little finger than [[{{Sadist}} Joffrey]] does in his whole body.

** Danys keeps an impassive expression throughout Master Kraznys' string of insults because she's pretending not to speak his language, but the last time he calls her a bitch, she gives him one of these when he's not looking. [[spoiler:Kraznys' horrible flame-y death ensues shortly after.]]

* TheHeroDies: [[spoiler:Robb Stark, son of [[SacrificialLion Lord Eddard Stark]]]], meets his end in the third season. Unlike the source novels, where [[spoiler:Robb]] is only a [[SupportingLeader significant secondary character]], the show gives him considerably more exposure and screentime, putting him in the top five central characters of a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters wide ensemble series]], and making his death that much more unexpected and tragic.

**One more tricky example is [[GuileHero Margaery Tyrell]]. While she ''is'' very ambitious and willing to use others to get her means, she is also a genuinely good person that cares about the smallfolk and her family. She becomes the main {{protagonist}} in King's Landing in seasons 5 and 6, with [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Cersei]] [[spoiler: and later the [[TheFundamentalist High Sparrow]]]] as her {{antagonist}}s.

** Done first with [[spoiler:Ned Stark]] himself, who was the central character for the bulk of the first season before being killed in the penultimate episode.
** By Season 5, [[spoiler:Jon Snow]] is pretty much the BigGood of the series, and the closest thing to TheHero that it has. He is murdered at the end of the season by [[spoiler:a few of his own Night's Watch Brothers (lead by his ArchEnemy Ser Alliser Thorne) in a mutiny]], though ultimately his death is [[spoiler:one of the very few in the series that does not stick, as he is revived by Melisandre in early Season 6]].
** By season 6, done again with [[spoiler: [[GuileHero Margaery Tyrell]]]], which served the last 4 seasons (especially seasons 5 and 6, after [[spoiler: Sansa and Tyrion left the city]]) as the {{protagonist}} in the King's Landing storyline, against [[StupidEvil Cersei]] [[SmugSnake Lannister]], and the [[TheFundamentalist High Sparrow]]. The show spends 4 seasons building the feud between her and Cersei, and the entire season building up her secret plan to thrawt the High Sparrow, only for her to be [[spoiler: [[DroppedABridgeOnHer killed abruptly]] by [[KillItWithFire wildfire]] in Cersei's final scheme (and because of the High Sparrow's [[BeliefMakesYouStupid stupidity]]), resulting in [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Cersei]] finally [[TheBadGuyWins winning]]]].
