They may be gone, but they are never forgotten!
Game of Thrones has killed off its fair share (and then some!) of characters in its three seasons and the HBO fantasy hit decided to pay tribute to the fallen during their panel on Friday at San Diego Comic-Con 2013.
The panel kicked off with an In Memoriam video featuring all of the series' big deaths, which was set to Boyz II Men's "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday." See, Game of Thrones isn't all doom and gloom all the time—just most of the time!
While we had a good laugh at the tribute, we will admit the "The North Remembers" tag at the end made us tear up a bit!
Recently killed-off cast members Richard Madden and Michelle Fairley (Rest in peace, Robb and Catelyn!) were scheduled to be on the panel, but a fan favorite who was killed off in season one made a surprise appearance: Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, popped up to kiss his former on-screen wife Emilia Clarke. "I'm not dead yet!" he shouted.
Finally, fans hoping to see Sean Bean back in action as Ned Stark shouldn't get their hopes up as author George R.R. Martin admitted he has no desire to write a prequel about the noble Stark patriarch. "No offense to Sean Bean," he said. "It's always sad to see him die. But he does die so well." Martin hinted that fans will probably learn more about Robert Baratheon's rebellion in the series' final two books, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.
