After the general debacle of the previous three or four episodes (the fact that episode one had been my favourite of the series prior to this said quite a lot about what I thought of it) I didn't come to the Thrones finale with any sense of hope of seeing a good 90 minutes of writing or drama. And I guess in that sense, I was pleasantly surprised...

After messing up the Night King storyline in episode three and then Dany's storyline, Jaime's arc etc etc in the previous episode, the final episode of GOT really did the best that it could with it's ruined and once great empire. The first half hour...

To sum up my thoughts after watching the culmination of nine years of storytelling: ''Oh no.''
I guess the signs had been there all along. The show had been losing it's way. The ancient prophesies and visions of fans that had begun as long ago as during season 5 had come to pass. The fan theories about Benioff and Weiss becoming the ''mad writers'' had finally been proven correct. And it all began with their attack on George R.R. Martin and his army of fans. After a previous assault by the show's writers on the book reading faithful, they chose to swoop in once more and deliver their final piece...

I asked people that voted to rank their favorite Game of Thrones characters, and they commented with their ranks. A total of 23 users took part. The ranks here are an average of the ranks of everyone that commented. The scoring of the ranks was done by a total point score (combined points to each character from the lists of all of the people that participated)! For example, if somebody had Ned Stark as #1 on their list, then Ned gets 10 points. If another person has him as #2, he gets 9 points and so on. If Ned is not in ranked in the top 10 on somebody's list, he gets no points.

DISCLAIMER! English is my second language, so I’m sure this article is full of mistakes. PLEASE! Feel FREE to comment and correct, so I can edit this!! Thank you!

So, let’s start from the beginning…

A long time ago, Lady Lyanna Stark was engaged to one brave and powerful Robert Baratheon, who happened to be her brother Ned’s friend.
Lyanna was (supposedly) kidnapped and raped by the evil Rhaegar Targaryen, who was married and had children with Elia Martell. (This is what Robert Baratheon thinks… there’s evidence that makes us believe Lyanna was not in love with Robert; she loved Rhaegar...

Ok, here we go. Needless to say SPOILER ALERT!!

Last night's episode of Game of Thrones provided us with some of the most terrifying, awe inspiring and grand battle scenes yet seen on the show. But overall I will look back on this episode as being a mixed bag. How come? Read on...
So first the good points. As just mentioned, the battle for Winterfell was immense and incredible to watch. It really did feel like the culmination and spectacular finale of the White Walker storyline, as we got to see the whites relentlessly launch their assault on Winterfell and it's defences. From the beginning,...

HBO has just released a slew of new character posters for the forthcoming season which will debut April 6, 2014. It's tough waiting for the season premiere to drop but let's check out the new posters and remind ourselves where we left off with these characters at the end of season 3!

The posters all feature the quote "Valar Morghulis" which means "All men must die" in High Valyrian. You may remember that these were the parting words of Jaqen H'gar in season 2 (he was the man who granted her the 3 deaths).

The crashing waves came and died
The howling winds swept across
The lashing drops fell with fury,
But she stood still, all through time.

With her drapes of rocks, sand and mortar
She is a testimony of man's will and strength
Carrying tales of the empires long past their sunset
She stands with her feet in the black water.

She has endured the tips of steel and
The edge of the blood washed blades
She has witnessed the screams of the dying
And cheers of her victors;
She is immortality, she is might
She is inspiration, she is light
She is greed and she is pride
She is a gift and she is a curse

If you were a huge fan of the series of novels entitled A Song of Fire and Ice, make sure to watch Game of Thrones online. It is the small screen adaptation of the books written by author George R. R. Martin. Martin. Ironically enough, Martin turned into writing novels because he got tired of working on TV. He was the writer of the series The Twilight Zone, and Beauty and the Beast. He later resigned after feeling that his creativity and vision got compromised. He began to write the series in 1991 and the first book, Game of Thrones, was released in 1996. It was well-received by both the readers...

I recently wrote an article which included my predictions for series 7. Because I've heard some very credible rumours (maybe even spoilers?) about series 7 since, I've decided to re-write my predictions AND include some for the final season. How many will come true? Probably none!:

Season 7:
1) Euron Greyjoy will form an alliance with Cersei, and attack Theon and Yara's fleet. Yara will be taken prisoner. Euron will then go on to attack the sand snakes in Dorne, and kill at least one of them, before Theon eventually saves Yara by killing his uncle. BUT Theon will be fatally wounded in the process....

So here it is. Another of my once every few month articles, because I'm bored of waiting for the next series of Thrones to air! This is a good one though (hopefully): My top ten predictions of who will ultimately win, come the end of the TV show. So here are my 10 most likely and why:

1) Jon Snow: The heir to the Iron Throne. He's returned from the dead and seems to be destined to sit on the Iron Throne. He's also the Show's hero figure. It would go against the grain if this was not to be.
2) Sansa Stark: She would be more keen to rule than Jon and would be a good and just ruler. She would have...

Small spoiler from A Clash of Kings included. I'm sorry for language mistakes- English isn't my mother tounge.

The idea came from link pick. I thought it was good moment to share all my thoughts about this character, because I never understood his great popularity. It made me angry how Catelyn is portrayed in fandom as a monster ONLY because she made our dear Jon unhappy.
I don't hate him, as I wrote in comments to fanpick. He simply gets on my nerves, mostly because of his angsting, but not only.
Forgive me a little emotional attitiude in an article. I'm a fan and this is an opinion, right?

The top 20 Game of Thrones characters as voted by you.
The top 20 Game of Thrones characters as voted by you.
For this article, I used a simple system. I'm gonna explain it briefly so none of you think I just made this list up :P
Anyway, assuming your list was this:
1. Jon Snow
2. Robb Stark
3. Arya Stark
Then I would give Jon 10 points, Robb 9 points, Arya 8 points and so on. The lowest someone can score is 1 point, which a character gets from being in the 10th rank.
There were a few ties, but I figured it doesn't matter. It only allows me to include even more people in the article.
THE CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS INCLUDE SPOILERS. IF YOU ARE NOT UP TO DATE WITH SEASON 4, DON'T READ THEM.
P.S. I would have given...

Hi everyone! I'm new to this club but I have been on Fanpop for a while - I was active in the Disney Princess club for a time and it was interesting seeing a myriad of different discussions and opinions which emerged from that.

I hope to grow this club to become more active, like the Disney Princess club and to see more input and opinions as we discuss Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire, especially in the lead up and (when it comes) the aftermath of Season 6. I hope to write more articles in the future however I am in my final year at school so they might not be too regular...

Today I...

Just recently I finished reading ADWD and simply loved it. It got me thinking about probable end games for SOIAF and the mind truly boggles at the posibilities:). The characters can be divided into three tiers based on their importance:

Tier I
Dany, John, Aegon, Stannis, Arya, Bran, Tyrion, Cersei, Sansa, Jamie

Tier 2
Tyrells, Dornes, Barristian Selmy, Melissandre, Littlefinger, Varys, Blackfish, Griff, Stoneheart, Rickon, Asha, Theon, Victarion, Brienne, Davos

Tier3
Faith, Easterosi (Mereneese, Yunkai...), Wildlings, Other ironborns

Little knowns (as of date):
Others, Rhilor, PTWP, Artifacts such...

I began reading the game of Thrones books many years ago. I recently re-read the first 5 and can't wait for season 3 of Game of thrones to start!

So far the Game of Thrones TV series has followed the books pretty closely. There have been some differences but they have been minor and have not affected the overall storyline so far.

However, I feel the epic tale is really only beginning and season 3 will make or break Game of Thrones. I think this because if the show continues to follow the books there will be a lot more bloodshed in the 3rd season.

Please read my link to see what's coming next for the cast and characters of Game of Thrones.

Welcome to my review of GOT season 7 so far! In this exciting installment, I'll be reviewing episodes 1-6 of the season. Yes, where's episode 7, you may ask? I'll probably do that next week. It just hasn't aired yet!
So the series started off with high hopes then, but for me episode 1 pretty much summed up the worst of Game of Thrones; Big ''surprises'' which weren't all that surprising (Arya wiping out the Freys), slow moving storylines - slowed down by unnecessary scenes (Sam cleaning out chamber pots in Old Town) and a flash of the show's ego (thinking that giving Ed Sheeran an all to obvious...
