With the stunning and shocking season finale for 'Game Of Thrones' Season Five having taking audiences by storm, it's time to take a look back over the season and discuss what we thought were the best moments from one of the best rated seasons of one most critically acclaimed shows of all time. While there were plenty of twists and turns this season (in addition to boat rides), these are our top five:

Cersei's Arrest: Lena Headey has put in a great performance from the start, making the incestuous, alcoholic and power-hungry Cersei Lannister both a compelling and hated character since the show's first episode. That said, seeing her chickens coming home to roost when Jonathan Pryce's High Sparrow took the power she had given him, and threw her in prison for her various crimes.

The Massacre at Hardhome: Most people who read the books hate any deviations that the show makes. For sure, there were many this season, but episode eight's Massacre at Hardhome was the sort of deviation was very welcome. Seeing an unheard of zombie invasion in the world of 'Game of Thrones' is great. Turn it into an incredibly well-made action piece which raises the stakes, reveals a new enemy, and changes the game entirely? You've got us on board entirely.

Dany's Flight from Meereen: Since the first season's cliff-hanger of dragons, we've wanted to see them become an actual force of nature. In the penultimate episode of this season, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) climbed on her biggest dragon and flew off to escape from an assassination attempt. While the CGI left a lot to be desired, this was something we've wanted for years.

The Stone Men: Iain Glen's Ser Jorah Mormont contracted the deadly Greyscale after saving Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) from the Stone Men as they travelled to meet Daenerys. In terms of reintroducing magic into the world and foreshadowing the Ice Zombies from later, Stone Zombies were a nice little addition.

Mother's Mercy: The best moment from Season Five? The entire tenth episode. Considering how many twists and turns and character moments and shocking deaths were crammed into a single hour, the show hit a new high with this episode.
