    Game of Thrones has a history of eliciting rather strong reactions from viewers. From its premiere in 2011 to last year's season five finale, this show has been all about shock value. From its gratuitous rape scenes and brutal deaths to incestuous affairs and mind-blowing plot-twists, the HBO fantasy drama may have generated the most WTF moments of any show in the history of television.

    In fact, we've uttered some iteration of what the fuck at our TVs so many times over the last five years that we completely forgot about some of them. I mean, we've only got so much room in our brains dedicated to "crazy ass shit that happened on Game of Thrones" — and that capacity was reached several seasons ago.

    So, in case you've forgotten — or, perhaps, somewhat wilfully blocked out some of the more traumatic memories — we're here to remind you of just how many messed up things have happened on GoT. Consider this your wildly entertaining 30-slide refresher in preparation for Sunday's season 6 premiere.

    From the perplexing to the grotesque to the straight-up fucked-up, here are the 30 most WTF moments from Game of Thrones. Oh, and we hope you're sitting somewhere where it's cool to blurt out expletives several times in a row.

    Jaime Pushes Bran Out The Window
    Season 1 Premiere, "Winter Is Coming"

    Ah, that time delicate flower Cersei Lannister and her darling brother Jamie caught Bran Stark spying on their sexy time — and established themselves as incestuous murderers in the show's first hour. (Pretty accurate first impression.)

    Daenerys Eats A Horse Heart
    Season 1, Episode 6, "A Golden Crown"

    Khaleesi first showed us how serious she was about ascending the Iron Throne when she devoured a big, bloody raw stallion heart like it was a Big Mac. The Dothraki pregnancy tradition was intended to make her baby strong.

    Viserys Gets Crowned
    Season 1, Episode 6, "A Golden Crown"

    It's hard to think of a more poetically painful death than this one. Khal Drogo gave Dany's scumbag brother the coronation he was so desperate for — in the form of molten gold poured over his head.

    Hodor's Dick
    Season 1, Episode 8, "The Pointy End"

    Why. Why? Just why. Poor little Bran had already been through so much. I guess the cameo by Hodor's "pointy end" was a moment of comic relief?

    Khal Drogo Rips Mago's Tongue Out
    Season 1, Episode 8, "The Pointy End"

    Drogo may not have lasted long, but he sure got a few "OMG EW WTF" kills in during his stint. Here, he rips out Mago's goddamn tongue out of his throat after he insults his Khaleesi.
