In my opinion, Game of Thrones (GoT), is the best show on tv. Sure, it has a tremendous amount of violence, incest, and unsettling scenes, but the storylines are so intricate and fascinating. And I love that it’s filmed all over the world, incredible!

I’m not a huge fan of violence, but I can usually handle it…unless it comes to kids. Violence against children, even though it’s fake, hurts my mama brain. So I thought I would put together all of the parent triggers, large or small, so you can decide if you want to watch the scene, or if you want to skip over it.
First, I will type out the season, episode, and times of the episode to avoid. (Times may be off a little. I was watching on HBO Now so if there was an ad at the beginning, I tried to start the time where the HBO shows up on the fuzzy snow screen. If nothing else, you’ll at least know what to expect for each episode and the general area for each scene.)
At the bottom of the post, I will write about the scene. So, again, you can decide if you want to watch it or skip it. I will also put three asterisks next to the scenes that I really did not like, as in, it almost made me stop watching the show (Maybe two or three for the whole series).
Notice!! Spoilers below!! If you want to look ahead so you can decide if you want to watch the scenes or not, then feel free to read them, but they are spoilers!!!
