No. 3. Viserys Targaryen

The how and why: After threatening his sister and her unborn child, a drunken Viserys Targaryen demands a golden crown, and Khal Drogo dutifully grants his wish. Unfortunately for Viserys, it's too hot to handle. Murder weapon: A crown of molten gold Culprit: Khal Drogo Shock factor: A good surprise. The most satisfying Game of Thrones death thus far. Lasting effect: Another example of Daenerys becoming a fierce queen as she watches her horrible brother go all gooey.
