You can thank Danielle of Underland to Wonderland for this tag today! I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to do this or just a big review like I’ve done with the previous TV shows! I figured this would require less gifs in this post than the reviews… So I hope nobody’s too upset by my decision!
If you have not finished or thinking about starting to watch the series, I’d really reconsider reading this post! It does contain quite a few spoilers!! So beware!
Which season did you start watching and what got you into it?
I started with season 1 while everybody was watching season 6. I started in May and I finally caught up with everybody else and was able to watch the last three episodes of season 6 with everybody else!
As I mentioned in my Life Lately | Game of Cats post, I was really curious about Jon Snow’s death and everything, but it wasn’t enough to get me watching it until I found out that Natalie Dormer was in it and I caved in. I honestly love dragons too, so I guess I was curious about how these dragons were part of the story!
Sidenote: my mom sent me an article of Jon’s fate as I was finishing the second season! I thought that was kind of cruel!
Books or TV show?
I originally had plans to read the first book, but I found out how thick those books were and I realized the TV show would be the easy route.
You are born into one of the noble houses, which is it?
You know, I actually go back and forth on this question. As much as I love both the Stark and Targaryen Houses, it’s really difficult to chose because they each have their own personal strengths! The women of both Houses are awesomely fierce, it’s amazing!
If you can have one of either a Dragon or a Dire Wolf, which would you chose and why?
Again, this is another hard decision because I think both are an interesting addition. I think my spirit animal is a cross from a hawk and a wolf, so I am going with dragon.
What has been the saddest death for you?
Honestly, there have been quite a lot of sad deaths in this show. I think when those giants were killed were pretty sad, mostly because I’m imagining these gentle beasts in my head.
I’ll be honest though, The Red Wedding just made me angry! I am usually the one trying to guess how a scene or the whole episode will end and I knew a death was going to occur, I mean there’s not many times on Game Of Thrones where everything ends on a happy note, so when it happened I really wanted to scream and throw my remote into my TV! Thankfully, I didn’t do that!
I also think the way Shireen was killed was pretty sad too. I mean, I understand the whole sacrifice thing, but what really gets me is the roles were reversed at last minute. You know Selyse’s feelings towards her daughter were through the seasons 4 and 5, but whenever this happened she gets very emotional and tries to save her daughter. I felt in a strange way, it was too little too late because I mean, didn’t she support it in the beginning? I was very disappointed in Stannis for letting it happen not only Shireen’s death, but also the aftermath of it too!
Another sad death was Rickon, I mean, Jon had to have known that he would be perfect bait against Ramsay’s armies. He reacted exactly the way Sansa was afraid it would happen…
Out of those dead, or presumed dead, who would you bring back and why?
I’ll say this, I’m actually happy that The Hound is alive. I recently heard about Lady Stoneheart, who apparently is a resurrected Catelyn Stark but instead of being this motherly woman as we’ve seen her to be in the first couple of seasons, she’s out for revenge of any one who still talks about and killed members of the soldiers and the murders of her son at the Red Wedding, I think it’s a very interesting concept and so I would like to see this happen.
I keep holding on to a bit of hope that Margaery would magically appear again, maybe as a ghost in one of Cersei’s dreams… I think that would be cool as she was the reason for Tommen’s death and everybody else’s in the Septa.
Who were you most happy to see killed?
Joffrey and Ramsay! Thank you god! I figured I’d be a little bit happy whenever Roose Bolton was killed, but I wasn’t. He should have been dead a long time ago!
Who do you think would make the best spouse?
Hmmm… let’s be honest here. I think both Ned was a good husband to Catelyn and if things hadn’t went downhill for his son Robb and his wife Talisa, I think they would have been another great couple too!
If we’re talking just a spouse in general, I think even though Tyrion has been essentially “burned” twice in the relationship department, I still think he was a reasonable husband to Sansa. He didn’t force himself on her and respected her a lot more than other members of his family… So Tyrion is my answer!
Out of all methods used to kill on the show, which would you rather use to kill and which to be killed by?
I think sticking a giant on a group of men with arrows and swords is a smart move. It makes for a slow death for the giant, but still a smart move!
Tell us your favorite quote from the series!
There are a lot of good ones throughout the series, but I really like “The North Remembers” and “I’m got going to stop the wheel, I’m going to break it.” – Daenerys ♥
