Why Jon Snow’s True Lineage Was Important

***Game of Thrones final season spoilers!***

I enjoyed the final season of Game of Thrones, including the finale. I can’t defend every single choice that was made, and I’d probably agree with a lot of the complaints that people have, but I thought it was a fine finale to a great show.  And I grow more comfortable with the finale the more I think about it.

I’d like to take this moment to clear up a problem I see a lot of people complaining about on the internet: what was the point of Jon Snow’s true lineage if he never did anything with it?

Jon Snow Parents 01

He doesn’t appreciate the twist like we do

Here’s your answer:

Jon Snow being the true heir of the Targaryen dynasty didn’t mean anything to him, but it meant everything to Daenerys. That’s why it was so important to the show overall.  It did not mean Jon Snow was going to sit on the Iron Throne. It was always only ever going to be the biggest, most painful straw to break against Dany’s camel back on her journey to becoming the Mad Queen.

My 6 New Favorite Game of Thrones Characters…Probably

The final season of Game of Thrones is upon us and it promises to be devastating! I have high hopes for the finale and look forward to each and every episode! About six years ago, just as the show was getting started, I put together a List of Six of my favorite characters at the time. It’s an interesting list to look back upon. And heck, all but one of the characters is still alive! Fancy that!

In honor of the final season, and because the list has changed a lot, I’ve whipped up a list of my current favorite characters heading into Season 8! I doubt this list will change by the end, barring someone doing something really awesome! Hopefully more than a few of these characters will survive the whole show.

There are still dragons!

It is definitely interesting to see how my favorite characters have changed over the course of the show. Most of my earlier favorites are still alive, like I said, and they remain cool characters. But mainly it seems new characters popped up and I found them just plain cooler and more interesting to watch.

So join me after the jump for my favorite Game of Thrones characters going into the final season! And feel free to share your own favorites in the comments!

The final season of Game of Thrones will be upon us in April. I’m a big fan of the show, just like everybody else in the world. And I have no idea how it’s going to end. I don’t even have any solid theories or guesses. I got no clue how it’s all going to turn out for real.

6 Characters Who Aren’t Going to Survive Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has reached a point where everybody’s favorite characters have stopped dying. The show shocked the world by killing off everyone we thought was going to be the protagonist, and now we’re left with a motley crew of heroes and villains who, I think, will fight until the very end.

But this being Game of Thrones, a lot of somebodies aren’t going to make it to the end!

GoT Death List 01

One of them is already dead!

Between the current season and the next, there are only seven episodes left of the entire series. That’s less than an entire regular season. The show is literally almost over. By this time next year, Game of Thrones will be finished. I don’t have any predictions for how it’s going to end. I don’t know who is going to end up on the Iron Throne or who is going to bone who before the finale. But I have a couple of ideas for who is probably going to die before the end.

Join me after the jump for my Game of Thrones death predictions! There will be SPOILERS to the series so far. And please feel free to share your own in the comments!
