Blood-soaked weddings. Slavery. Regicide. These are a few of Game of Thrones' favorite things.
It takes a strong stomach and hard heart to appreciate the fantasy drama's disturbing plot turns, but occasionally the series rewards fans with glimpses of humanity, kindness and yes, even warm and fuzzy moments.
