Thanks, but you didn't change Joer to Jeor.

Also, why did you remove Robb and Littlefinger? I think they are worth including.

i agree, but i wanted to leave a solid, size buffer (ten or so) for an update after the conclusion of season eight, as I expect the final season's shocking deaths to equal the entire series run to date, in terms of shock value. I only expect a handful of characters to survive to the end of the series.

The Rob/Grey Wind option was a top vote geter in the original poll. But, I thought it was more about the use of their bodies after their deaths, than about their deaths. In my opinion, Littlefinger's death is more about sweet justice, as he got what he deserved, than shock value. The part I would perceive as shocking is Arya's unveiling as a stone cold killer in front of her family, a different Arya than they may have remembered. I added both back in, as mine might be a minority opinion, but that is the reasoning. WAYBACK SNAPSHOT: https://web.archive.org/web/20160526030655/http://www.imdb.com:80/poll/EWHn-6-03nI

Death by Flaming Sword (plus I thought Ned Umber was dead already).
[/spoiler]

FYC
I think some character's deaths stock has risen, while other deaths has dropped for this proposition over the past three years Plus, new deaths have been added that has changed the composition of the answer pool, Regardless, it is a shame voters cannot voice an opinion on this topic anymore.

This poll suggestion was current as of Sunday 8:59 EST, however these four images are placeholders for the deaths in the latest episode, "The Long Night" I am awaiting on some death scene specific images, which if approved should be up in the next week. I added captions to the substitutes and updated the spoiler date in the meantime.

SPOILER ALERT: Intended for viewers current through the 2019 season, but poll may reveal Game of Thrones (2011) depicted or discussed shocking character deaths through the end of calendar 2019.

UPDATE: Images have been updated for season eight and poll is current again. I am saving a couple spots for the last three episodes. I would expect a couple more "shocking" deaths and will update upon the season conclusion, if poll is published beforehand.

Thanks for the help, It should be ready now. I made the corrections in those answer options. I have since reshuffled the order, but those corrections remain between the #27 and #34 options. I also went through the entire list once more. The list seems to be generating plenty of interest with over 500 views the past week: List Activity Views: 1,778 | in last week 503.
