10. The Kiss on the Wall

Season 3, Episode 6: "The Climb"
To paraphrase David Bowie, let's remember Jon Snow and Ygritte standing on the Wall, where they kissed as though nothing could fall. The star-crossed couple's big moment came after a pulse-pounding sequence in which their raiding party scaled the treacherous icy obstacle, nearly dying in the process, so their mere survival was cathartic enough.
