Oh man. This one hurt. I know a lot of people have argued that Ygritte’s death did not have the impact it could have because she and Jon had been separated from each other for almost an entire season before they met up again, but her dying in his arms still crushed me. Even though we didn’t spend a great deal of time with Ygritte, she was instantly one of my favorite Game of Thrones character, fitting right into the countless numbers of strong and independent females that make up the world of Westeros.
