“There is only one god and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death. Not today.” That line ensured that Syrio Forel, despite the fact that he was only in like three episodes of the show, was one the best Game of Thrones characters to ever exist. His “dancing lessons” with Arya are some of the best moments in season one of the series, and while it’s pretty safe to assume that he’s dead, I hope he somehow found a way to say “Not today,” so that we can see him again when Arya ends up in Bravos next season.
