Game of Thrones’s fourth season premiered last night (but you already knew that didn’t you?). In honor of the new series, the character formerly known as Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) stopped by Entertainment Tonight to give a rundown on his top five goriest moments in GoT history. Seem like an impossible task? Turns out Alfie had his picks ready to roll (and no, that’s not a morbid allusion to Ned Stark losing his head back in Series 1).
Rocking teal loafers, the 27-year-old actor spilled on what had him curling up in a tiny ball on his sofa and surprisingly his own character’s, um, impromptu surgery during last season only made it halfway up the list. That transformative experience that made Theon into Reek took the third place spot, topping Jaime Lannister losing his hand (No. 5) and Theon turning full-on traitor and beheading a beloved member of Winterfell (No. 4).
Interested to see what Alfie deemed the goriest scene to date? Watch the video above for the big reveal! Hint: Alfie admits his top pick is perhaps more “mentally gory” than anything else since the main bloodchilling action happened offscreen.
