No. 1: The Red Wedding

The how and why: Rob Stark -- along with his wife, mother and pet direwolf Grey Wind -- attends the wedding of his uncle, but is ambushed at the reception by the evil old man Frey.

Murder weapon: Swords, Daggers, Crossbows, Clubs, Steak Knives, etc ...

Culprit: The Freys and Roose Bolton

Shock factor: Clutch those pearls and scream. YouTube is teeming with the videos. Go look.

Lasting effect: The northern rebellion is stopped dead. And "The Rains of Castamere" becomes the all time worst wedding dance song ever, even beating out the Chicken Dance.
