Game of Thrones is starting up again end of this month, and I’m excited about it. You might not know this, but I started watching Game of Thrones really late, when everyone else I know had already finished season 4. For some reason I just had no interest in the show, but then one day I was bored and thought ‘everyone else seems to absolutely love it, so I might as well give it a go’.
And I’m glad I did, because yes, it is a brilliant show. Often shocking, but so well made. I came across a post written by Morgan at The Rose Quartz, where she mentioned her six favourite characters. I got inspired and decided to do the same. Well, not my six favourites exactly, but my favourites in general.
Surprise, surprise. Isn’t he everyone’s favourite character? Yes, I know he may or may not be dead, but this list is not only for characters that are currently alive, it’s for my favourite characters in general. Jon Snow is such a genuinely nice guy, and I think Game of Thrones need that, seeing as all other characters are crazy psychopaths in some way or another. OK, maybe not all of them, but most of them.
Yup, another one of everyone’s favourites. Daenerys Targaryen, a.k.a Khaleesi has been a favourite from the start. The only thing that disappoints me is that she’s in a completely different place than anyone else. I’m sure they’ll all gather at some stage, but it’s just taking so long!
Yes, his character might not be one of the most loved ones, but I really like his character. Perhaps it’s just because he plays it so well. I’m really hoping he will man up this season and do something good, because we all know he’s made a few mistakes in the past. But you can’t help but root for someone who’s had their junk cut off. Ouch.
OK, don’t get me wrong, I want this guy to die as much as the next person. Big time. But you can’t say that he doesn’t make the show interesting. He’s the person we love to hate, almost as much as we hated Joffrey. If not more even! I have a feeling he might die in the coming season. I kind of hope Theon kills him, that would be amazing!
I don’t know what it is, but I really like this guy! I think it might be because there is a bit of a mystery to him. No one really knows him, and I have a feeling there could be a whole story behind him. Not sure if the writers will develop his character any further, but I actually hope they do!
What the heck happened to this guy? When he first became part of the show I thought he was going to be a major part of it, and I was even more sure about it when he was saved from being sacrificed and pushed out to the sea on a boat. But then we haven’t seen him since. Where the heck did he go? Did he drown? Is he coming back? He better!
Of course he’s a favourite. He’s funny, and the show needs funny to break up all the killing, raping and other types of violence. I’m worried they’ll kill him off at some point. It seems they like to kill of everyone’s favourite characters. They’ll probably all die at some point, and just get replaced by new characters, haha.
I think her character is underrated. I mean, yes, she’s weak and not very brave, but I reckon she’s got heaps of potential. I’m actually quite curious to see if there will be a storyline with her and Theon. There might not be, but I thought them jumping off the wall together was pretty sweet, and I’d love to see more scenes with them. Not entirely sure she could forgive him for what he did though…
There you have it, my favourite characters. I’ve probably left out some of the characters other people absolutely love, but I can’t include them all! I used to be a fan of Arya, but her storyline has been pretty lame lately. I also quite liked Jamie for a while, but not enough for him to make this list.
What characters are your favourites?
