4. Behold Khal Drogo’s Mortal Kombat-like fatality move.

Who knew that barbarians could be so chivalrous? While other characters on Game Of Thrones are busy sleeping with prostitutes and treating them like soulless playthings, badass Dothraki leader Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa) learned to treat his lady, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), with respect. Initially, Drogo used her as a sexual object, but, after Daenerys gained some courage and took charge, he viewed her in a whole new, affectionate light. Cue the violins.

So when one of Drogo’s minions disrespects his “sun and stars” (the Dothraki slang equivalent to “my boo”), dude doesn’t let it slide. And when said minion then directly scoffs at Drogo’s commands, it’s lights out for your boy. In this case, it’s Mago, an otherwise anonymous Dothraki soldier who foolishly challenges Drogo and, subsequently, has his throat ripped open and his tongue pulled out. All that’s missing from the scene is a concluding voiceover that says, “Drogo wins…Flawless victory.”
