It feels like forever since I have had any new Game of Thrones to watch…or any new A Song of Ice and Fire to read. In little over a month we all will get the seventh season of the hit HBO show. I am betting we will not get the last two books until the show has completed its run in 2018. I hope I am wrong about that but more and more it feels like that is what is going to happen. That means for now the show will be the officially unofficial canon of Westeros will be the show. As a writer I am not super happy about that but as a fan I just need my GoT fix already. To help satisfy that need I embark upon a 30 day blogging challenge about Thrones. I am going to try to answer each prompt once for the TV show and once for the books since a great many things differ. With that being said…
Day Twenty Two-A character I’d kill
Can I just lure all the characters I don’t like to one place and then blow them up with wildfire? Oh ya that’s already been done.
The great things about Game of Thrones is hat most of the fucks that really, truly deserve to die do so…often in the cruellest, funniest ways possible. Fuck you Joffrey. Of course there are those that are still alive and kicking but I feel pretty safe is saying they are gonna have to pay the karma train before the show or books end.
Who would I dispose of? Littlefinger has to be way up there because he is a threat. More so in the show, but in the books as well. Taking out the greatest player of the Game of Thrones is a solid move. However, I think in the end I would do in Cersei Lannister just because she deserves it. Especially the TV version of her. I am a little more tolerant of her in the books because there she is a complete idiot. We haven’t seen a lot of that in the show were she is portrayed as much more ruthless. In the books she is vengeful to the point of stupidity and does several highly questionable things that a more nuanced character would avoid like the plaque.
In the books Littlefinger or Varys are the two likeliest targets. Mostly because we are not exactly sure of their endgame. Varys more than likely is helping Jon Connington put another Targaryen on the throne but I really think that entire plot point is a red herring. Littlefinger is up to…something and I am not quite sure what that is and that makes him dangerous.
