Here is that “In Memoriam” video from the SDCC panel

The Game of Thrones panel just ended. But before it kicked off, HBO played this In Memoriam video, showcasing the many deaths from across all three seasons.

Winter Is Coming: That was funny and sad all at the same time.

  • AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I wonder how boyz II men feels about being included in game of thrones!

  • Arkash:
    Wish they had shown all the “proper” death scenes ! ^^

    Yeah wtf was up with that? They stopped like halfway through the video.

  • Correct me on this, but was Walder Frey’s wife missing? Also Jaime Lannister killing his guard Torrhen Karstark? And Brienne of Tarth killing Renly’s two kingguard when she and Catelyn found him dead?

  • OK, seriously, HBO is the best tv channel in existence for putting this video together. I demand they play this at the emmy’s.

  • boze:
    No Theon’s junk in this “In Memoriam” video?

    Hahaha I thought the same thing.

    And OMG Syrio is still alive confirmed???

  • They used the same song in the LOST In Memoriam at Comic-Con 2009.

    Funny video though. Disapointing panel overall.

  • Also no Benjen Stark in this video.

    Someone call Mulder and Scully… there’s a mystery afoot!

  • Was really hoping for one of the three:

    1. Winds of Winter release date
    2. Season 4 premiere date
    2. Season 4 casting announcement

    Instead I got 0 :(

    *lowers expectations for next comic con to realistic things involving the previous season.

  • gisizzlah:
    *wails like a baby*

    Rickard Karstark deserved to be part of the ‘slower bits’

    Heather:

    Both of those. Still great video nonetheless.

  • Okay, I thought I’d giggle through that, and it started off that way, but I got really emotional around the time Qhorin and Talisa appeared!! Way to tug at the heartstrings, video-makers!

  • Oh I see what they did there leaving lady catelyn stark as the last one

    damn right the north remembers!!!

  • Beautifully produced video, a woman will have to watch it a few more times to properly speak to the particulars. However, it had a similar humor to pathos proportion as the show usually has, the same feel. Bravo!

  • shadowassassinbabby:
    not
    FARM BOYS
    but
    MILLER’S BOYS

    (srsly, pretty great tho)

    I know you’re joking, but in the show they are the two boys Bran sent to work on that old dudes farm who complained about the war taking his sons, not the millers kids.

  • It started out funny. Then sad. Then tears started welling when they got to Lady and Grey Wind.

  • King OF The North really burns my ass.

    Seriously. Maybe it’s not a big deal, but it annoys the hell out of me to see that on an official video.

  • Doug:

    No shan, me too. What brainiac screwed the pooch on that one?

  • ebevan91: Yeah wtf was up with that? They stopped like halfway through the video.

    It was funny for the smaller character but in a “real” memoriam you don’t actually show someone dying. obviously they wanted to make it legit and sad for all the good characters

  • King in the North! King in the North! King in the North!

    I didn’t even notice they messed up :/

  • “Robert’s Bastard #1” was named Barra, though maybe this wasn’t stated on-screen.

  • Carne:
    They used the same song in the LOST In Memoriam at Comic-Con 2009.

    Funny video though. Disapointing panel overall.

    Well, this got me a little teary. Glad that I am not the only one that noticed use of the same song as LOST.

    Agree about the panel; a little uneventful.

  • shadowassassinbabby,

    The farm boy orphans were mentioned. Correct me on this, but I’m that dorky to actually have a long list not including random soldiers aka the Frey ones that Arya kills after the red wedding.

    Mycah; catspaw assassin; Varly; Wallen and Stiv (who arrived w/ Osha); Vayon Poole; Kurleket, Willis Wode; Matthos Seaworth; High Septon killed during the riot; rioters attempting to assault Sansa Stark; Emmon Cuy and Robar Royce (Renly’s guards); Torrhen Karstark; Martyn Lannister and Willem Lannister (killed by Lord Karstark); Joyeuse Frey; Master Torturer aka the Skinner (killed by Ramsay Snow back when he was “The Boy”); Qotho; Mago; Prendahl na Ghezn; Mero; Selyse’s stillborn sons in jars.

  • Queenofthorns,

    yep. i should have beefed up the #NOONEUNDERSTAAAANDS quotient.

    Heather,

    right. they were referenced in the vid as “farm boys” because that’s how they’re referenced in the show. in the books it’s the miller’s sons who are killed, so i was making a [bad] joke about the adaptation error, i mean choice. the vid was show-correct.

    it was a faux Angry GoT Fan-type complaint, poorly executed on my part.

    that’s a good list.

    does wendel manderly not get included because he was seen but not named on the show?

  • Gods that’s a great video. and Gods I loved Robert almost as much as Bessie…

    and her tits.

  • I’m surprised there isn’t more talk about “The north remembers” showing up at the end. Such a no brainer tag line for next season.

  • This is why I love the showrunners: Boyz II Men?! These two are seriously cheeky. They know how uptight the fandom can be but throw all this cool stuff in a tongue-in-cheek way. They know what’s up.

    That said, can we have Boyz II Men do “The Dornishman’s Wife” for Season IV?!

    “THE NORTH REMEMBERS.” CHILLS.

    Shit, I almost started tearing up when they got to Lady Catelyn.

  • Liam S,

    The premiere date of Season 4 hasn’t even been announced yet. They can’t have a countdown if they have nothing to count down to.

  • Why on gods green earth did they not get Rob McElhenney to host the comic con panel? That’s two years in a row that the GOT comic con panel was rather dull.

  • shywalker:
    No love for Syrio!?

    SYRIO IS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (perhaps i am still in denial but i believe he is, in fact, alive…)

  • man the look catelyn gives in the end…. folowed by “the north remembers … pure awsomeness

  • John,

    Lord Hoster Tully was a character that the first time we see him, he’s already dead à la Lord Jon Arryn.
    shadowassassinbabby,

    No Ser Wendel Manderly since in TV series, he comes as a random soldier killed at the Red Wedding and there were tons of those.

    I guess another missing one is the tortured prisoner at Harrenhal who was killed by that rat. Also all those Riverlands knights and Mountain clansmen (including the one that Tyrion stabs to death a shield after he was going to take Catelyn’s life).

  • Wow, I forgot there were soo many! And not only that, soo many from the main cast!!! Few shows have the balls to kill off soo many of its leading characters, and for that I salute and love you GoT!!! LOL

    Great mixture of funny and sad in this video, and a touching and fitting tribute to all the actors and extras that have entertained us for the past 3 years (?!?!?!? wow has it been that long already?!?!?!?) I am soo glad I got to read the books and see this show and be part of this community!

    And now fingers crossed, lets look forward to more of this awesomness!

    (King In The North…and hell yeah The North Remembers!)

  • Jamb0:
    Cool video, but ‘King *OF* the North’ made my eye twitch a little :)

    This. And Vardis Egen.

    And laughing my derriere off at those Blackwater bay scenes (the counter of Baratheon soldiers)

    And nearly crying every time lady Catelyn is shown. Bastards :)

  • Awful editing… way to quick. Ended up reminding me more of all the characters who died who still live in the books, and how botched season 2 was.

  • ColdPie: Was really hoping for one of the three:
    […]
    2. Season 4 premiere date

    Uh, looking at the last two seasons: March 30, 2014

  • Andrea: man the look catelyn gives in the end…. folowed by “the north remembers … pure awsomeness

      

    Andrea: Syrio is one of my favourite, so I’ve always hoped he’s alive but… if I remember well in the series he’s “killed” by Meryn Trant (http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Meryn_Trant) who is still alive in the following episodes. That would mean that Meryn Trant survived the duel with Syrio and therefore Syrio died…

    It is very interesting Syrio is not there. It does bring up the possibility that Syrio is alive

  • I have to say it…

    OH THE F’ING FEELS at the 2nd half of the clip

    (And on a serious note, thank you for sharing this with us!)
