When Game of Thrones first premiered back in 2011, many readers of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice And Fire” saga were already excited for Season 3. The third season would presumably be based off “A Storm of Swords,” the third massive book in the series, which included many key events and which is so jam-packed that it was no surprise to hear it would be covered over the course of both seasons 3 and 4.

As the third season grew closer, excitement turned into anticipation to see these moments play out on screen. Season 3 ended a few weeks ago and it’s safe to say it was the best season of “Thrones” yet. Everything from the acting, production value, and cinematography seemed to be bigger and better than what was already an impressive sophomore season.

So what about the scenes book readers were waiting to see? Many of us weren’t disappointed, and to celebrate, we’re looking at the 10 most spectacular moments that went down during the show’s best season yet.

Warning: spoilers. If you haven’t seen Season 3, don’t read further.
