It goes without saying that Stannis's wife, Selyse, has had a very tough time from day one. I mean, think about it. She had three stillborn sons and her only living daughter has a mild disfigurement. As if it couldn't get any worse, her husband is cheating on her with a sultry priestess who practices black magic, aka Melisandre. So it's easy to understand how the pressure of being in a royal family and losing three kids pushed her over the edge and why she keeps all of her dead children's bodies in jars in her bedroom. You really can't help but feel bad for her most of the time.
While any viewer with a conscience spent all of seasons four and five hating her guts for banishing her daughter, Shireen, to a dank basement due to the way she looks, the tides definitely change once she's killed. It's safe to say no mother could even fathom sacrificing their own child via giant fire pyre — and though Selyse agreed to it in the first place, your stomach stills churns when you see her begging for her choice to be reversed. By the end, she's so upset over losing Shireen she offs herself, which lands her in second to last because it's better to be late to the good-mom party than never showing up at all.
