Even so, showrunner David Benioff has just revealed an offscreen death that's truly shocking.
He said, "Cersei hated the name "Ser Pounce" so much she could not allow him to survive".
Poor Ser Pounce. With a name like that, and a hell-bent psychotic mother, it's a wonder Tommen's cat even lasted that long.
Following the backlash, actress Emilia Clarke came out in support of her and applauded her response writing, "Preach handsome woman".
The final season of Game of Thrones premieres April 14th.
"Ser Pounce's death was so awful we couldn't even put it on the air", Benioff claimed.More news: Watch Angel Di Maria scream 'f*** off' at Manchester United fans

Fans on social media also paid tribute to the Royal Feline of House Baratheon.
While there is a super Game of Thrones box set coming out this year, don't expect more Pounce footage.
So just how did Ser Pounce go to the giant ball of string in the sky? In the George R.R. Martin's novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, King Tommen's cats are a major part of the story. When she is courting him, Margaery even gives Tommen some kittens, who follow him everywhere in the red keep. Despite that great scene, though, it turns out the cat was very hard to work with.
They've gone too far this time.
And given that the cats have their own agendas means that one of the white walkers have retrieved it and that later, it would come back to attack Cersei.
"Dogs generally do what you ask them to do if they're smart and well trained", Weiss added.
