The Iron Throne

Now I clearly don’t know who will ultimately sit on the Iron Throne. This is also not meant to be a spoiler type blog, so please no spoilers.

What I would like to know though, for those who watch GOT, who do you think will ultimately sit on the Iron Throne, and why? Keep in mind as well, I have not and others may not have seen this weeks episode yet or possibly even last weeks episode. You can even let your mind run wild (like Natalie Dormers character comes back to life) or just because you like a certain character.

I personally think and kind of hoping it will be Tyrion. For a couple of reasons, one being the below gif still satisfies me.

GoT conspiracy theories!

I love a good conspiracy theory and with the popularity of Games of Thrones, there have definitely been quite a few going around! I think that I have loved every single one of them. One of the most recent ones I have read and am interested to find out what you all think about, is the Wall of the Nights Watch, it’s also a theory I’ve heard little about.

Games of Thrones: how the Wall was built, and it could be destroyed. Telegraph article online (journalist: Rebecca Hawkes)

I mean that wall is 700 feet tall and apparently over 300 miles long. Something like that doesn’t happen, without at least a little magic?!

It’s funny because I started to write this BEFORE I saw the last episode and know we now how they take down a wall like that…But let’s be honest…If they hadn’t of done it that way, how else would they have been able to do it? I was honestly hoping for more…It seemed too easy! Although I have seen some people say that it didn’t really happen and it was Bran seeing the possible future?!

I love a good conspiracy theory!

Have you got any? I would LOVE to hear them!

Games of Thrones

*If you have not seen the Games of Throne episode “Unbowed, Unbent and Unbroken…Spoiler alerts…Also possibly over 18+ content*

So last week (I’ve only just gotten around to watching it) I watched the last episode “Unbowed,Unbent and Unbroken” and this episode has been creating a LOT of controversy, as Games of the Thrones always seems too (yes I’m aware I wrote that title wrong =P).

I noticed with myself though I spent half of it fast forwarding through a lot of the episode.  One of the good things about this episode though was that it did not just focus on just one character and did not focus on one story/plot line. This meant that the stories were pushed along and few needed to be because we had had nothing happen for a while with certain characters and it felt like “Oh, there you are”.

The problem that I am starting to have though with this series is that it’s feeling a little repetitive and yet people continue to be shocked and outrage. The particular scene at the the end was not even in the book. The writers of the show seem to think that there is only one way a woman could ever been given “strength” and that is through having really terrible happen to her and it’s starting to bore me. I was also bored though because I can’t believe that no one didn’t see what Ramsay did, coming? That’s just my opinion on the matter though. I think it was just lazy writing really.

Oberyn Martell *spoilers*

This week is the last episode of Season 4 (four) for one of my favourite television shows “Games of Thrones”. I personally think that its been one of the most up and down seasons of the show to date. I stopped viewing after the episode “Oathkeeper” where I personally felt a scene was competently unnecessary and it was not in the book at all, they have not brought it up and it did nothing to move the plot along. Ever since then I’ve been off of the “Games of Thrones” bandwagon.

Even with Tyrions speech everyone I knew was going on about how it was Emmy winning and it was the best speech they had ever heard and I finally got to watch it…and it was good, but I have heard it before.

So enough of that! (I was hoping that people wouldn’t be able to see what I am about to write) ~.^

However despite the disappointments I had this Season, there was one character that we were introduced that continually made everything better…Oberyn Martell.

Oberyn Martell

Prince Oberyn Nymeros Martell (also known as the Red Viper)  had a very close relationship with his sister, Elia, and they were inseparable as children. Oberyn’s speed and skill with a spear and a sword are extremely well-known.

Following the sacking of King’s Landing, Oberyn learned that his sister, Elia, was raped and murdered by a Lannister knight, Gregor Clegane as well as her son, and her daughter was killed by another Lannister knight and Oberyn swore revenge. Prince Oberyn eventually comes Kings Landing to to claim the seat on the council on Prince Doran Martell’s  behalf, and to get justice for his sisters murder, which was agreed with by Tyrion Lannister.

When Tyrion is accused of Joffrey’s murder, Oberyn is one of the judges. Before Tyrions judgement , Oberyn offers to be Tyrion’s champion in trial by combat, if Tyrion tells who is guilty of the murder of Elia. Tyrion takes Oberyn up on his offer. Oberyn knows already that Ser Gregor will be his adversary.

This is where I sign off…I don’t want too give anything else away!
