4. Kissed by Fire – Season 3, Episode 5
Despite its heated title, the best moments in this third season gem all occur in and around water. “Kissed by Fire” furthers several important Game of Thrones plotlines — one of the most memorable being Jon Snow losing his long-discussed virginity to his fiery Wildling sweetheart, Ygritte (Rose Leslie). Yet when push comes to shove, the best moment in the episode comes in a quiet moment between recently-freed Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and the bruised, battered, and recently handicapped Jaime when he confesses his sins to her as they cleanse themselves in the Harrenhal baths.
