With mere hours to go I thought I better finish my list! Rembember comments are love!
So here we go
Top 12 Game of thrones Houses part to number 6- the Golden crown of Number 1!
With the death of Oberyn Martell, (sob) last season house Martell spent the season in mourning.
His widow (basically) wants revenge and therefore the TV show went to Dorne and met the head of the family (Oberyn’s older Brother) as well as his ‘only’ son (seriously)I had looked forward to Dorne for a long time because unlike the rest of Westeros it is the only nation that did not bend the knee to the Targs when they first invaded and it is the first born who rules Dorne whether it is a boy or a girl.
Unlike many people I enjoyed the Sand snakes on the TV show I thought the actresses were brilliant and it makes more sense for them to try to kill Myrcella while in the books they tried to crown her in which she lost an ear but lived which didn’t really make a lot of sense. I mean the seven kingdeoms had learnt from the dance of the dragons when siblings went up against each other so I doubt that would occur again.
Out of the sand snakes I like the oldest Obara, the best as her story how Oberyn came to collect her made it clear that she hated the Lannisters for taking the man who took her in and loved her as a true born child. Tyene was confusing I would of much seen her represented as the daughter as a Septor and to be honest her relationship with Bron would have been better given to Nymeria as Tyene is in my eyes too young (if they must of given it to one of them) but I did like how it shows Tyene is still adapt with posions. I think Dorne are in trouble next season but I doubt there will be Lannister VS Martell war, in which Cersei will want. I think the TV should of not cut out Quentyn Martell and, Arianne, they set Quentyn story line up very well in the fourth season with Tywin telling Oberyn that Dany has 3 dragons honestly I could basically hear Quentyn’s bags zipping up in the distance!
In summary they lose points as, Trystane is currently on a boat with his dead fiancé and now at the mercy of the Lannisters which was a major flaw in the grand plan to kill a princess and I didn’t understand why Ellaria Sand, would allow that to happen unless there is an extraction plan? But in saying that in the season 6 pictures there is no Tystane so maybe he did escape as he is on a DORNISH ship, but they will have to answer for the crimes even with a lack of Cersei power.
They score at 6 as no one is in prison (yet) no one was killed this season (including bastards) and I believe we will be seeing a strong Dorne next season, I don’t know in what context as there is no young Griff (ill count him) or Princess in the tower, but we will see. House Martell is basically the only place in Westeros where winter is not comming, and therefore safe from white walkers. They are not broke (or going broke) like the lannisters and if Cersei does bring war to Dorne it will bankrupt (more so) the crown.
Therefore they earn there place strongly at number 6.
Number 5 House Greyjoy
After Seasons of captivity and stockhome syndrome Theon Greyjoy has escaped Ramsay Bolton, and in an attempt to protect Sansa killed Boltons Misttress/ Parnter and jumped off the walls of Winterfield with Sansa Stark. Reek has become Theon once more, the trailer shows they have survived the fall and are fleeing the Boltons, Sansa is shown to be safe and warm but what of Theon, he is hated in the North as Theon turncoat but I think once Rickon and Bran (maybe) is shown to be safe they may trade him to iron islands which is is rumoured for him to go to, I think this may be the end for Theon who isn’t really liked anywhere ,even with his own people his Uncle (or even Dad) may take off his head so this might be the end of him. Personally I hope the keep him around and I am hoping to see Theon’s mum and my favourite uncle of Asha/Yarra the Lord of the ten towers the reader but I doubt it. For now I am just enjoying that Theon may get some vengeance on the man who killed his best friend and the man who well- unmanned him.
His Father King Balon is still King of the Iron Island, and is still alive despite dying three books ago, he seems to be still in some form of health although he hasn’t changed his clothes in three seasons. I do doubt he will survive season 6. It is my heartfelt belief that this man to be the worst dad in Westeros so I will not mourn him as he falls off a bridge which is heavily rumoured as it was glimpsed in the trailer as a actor (maybe Euron) removing his hood on a dark and rainy windy night… so you know a nice night on the iron islands.
His Sister who was last seen doing the world’s worst rescue in season 4 has been seen in previews kissing a girl and then waiting with a small force looking quite concerned but I think she knows she is in big trouble because… of her uncle Euron, the previously banishened / exiled uncle has returned…
because next season we are getting EURON!!! I am wondering where the show will go with this, will they do the greyjoy /Targarian wedding attempt will Euron meet his niece and nephew will he kill Theon (as he is rumoured to be going home) as he is ‘no longer a man’ will he wed his neice will he marry his niece off, will he get blue lips will he wear a patch will we get a kingsmoot?
Safe to say the earn there spot in 5th place, as Theon grew some balls (sorry I know it’s a bad joke) Yarra gets some action Euron graces the screen and Balon dies.
Number 4 House Bolton
They are on top of the world as they just defeated Stannis ‘the fake king’ so I believe Ramsay will return to the castle very pleased until he realised Sansa and Reek/ Theon is gone and his mistress is dead, I think this is a big blow.
This is one of the main things they loose points for the disepearance of Sansa and Reek is a hudge blow for them, as their ‘back stabbing nature’ has been discovered by house Lannister and they have Lost the title of warden of the north to Baelish. It may not seen much but it may be enough for the Lords of the North to rally against the feared Boltons which I believe this will happen as the north remembers.
But if all of this bad things are going to happen how did they get number 4 you may ask, remember they still have Winterfield they have food and wood for a winter, they have loyal (although terrified) men they have horses they have just killed (well technically Brianne) a King and the House of Bolton may have a new lord as his ‘fat young wife’ is pregnant, this may be a happy occasion but as I believe Ramsay may kill his step mum and Roose doesn’t want boy lords. So safe to say at the moment they are number 4 even though they have just won a major battle as they will be in BIG trouble next season
THE NORTH REMEMBERS!!!
Number 3 House Frey
WHAT how did they get the bronze crown we haven’t seen them in three seasons !
But with several characters missing in the TV show, the most important including of course lady stone heart who murdered all the Freys (or even kinda related to the Freys) she could find, the ghost of winterfield (rumoured to be the black fish) Lord too fat to ride a horse who was rumored to at the Bolton wedding kill three freys and cook them into huge pies which he had served at the ramsay and fake arya wedding, (this rumour is basically confirmed that is another huge tick for house frey the TV show has cut this out, which is a big plus for the Freys.
So if house greyjoy has taught us anything the house that doesn’t appear (or appears very little) lives to fight another day.
I should say that as we HAVE seen freys in season 5 the most notable Frey we have seen this season includes one of Walder Freys granddaughters Walda who has married (thanks to her size and the amount of silver her hubby has gotten) the warden of the north and is pregnant with a baby, something young Walda seems happy with (lets see how long that lasts) but I believe that (sadly) her step son may kill her.
In addition it seems that Lord Frey is coming back into season 6 as the actor who plays Walder Frey has been spotted on set, I very much doubt house Frey will place number 3 next season as the north remembers. Lord Frey is also basically wins the most hated person in westeros. He is has made a huge impression with viewers as the Lord of the crossing has 3 episodes in almost 50 and yet he is one of the most hated people on the series. So I think it is fair to say that the probably hundred year old will die… soon.
I expect to see more Freys as the seize of Riverrun may occur so we may meet Jamie’s aunt and uncle and his cousins (freys) as well as (HOPEFULLY) lady stone heart, although it is rumoured that Sansa will be killing the Freys. Ever way I am happy.
So in conclusion, the Frey’s rule the river lands, by all accounts they still have poor Edumure Tully in a dungeon there close kin is the wife of the Warden of the North (someone thing that was promised to them, not queen but ah they still have the North) no one has been hung or turned into a pies, so they earn their (today) place at Number 3.
Number 2 House Arryn
Despite losing his mum last season Robin is adapting well, he seems strong and why he may fail at sword play he is well protected by his (maybe less than emphatic) banner man Lord Royce, and if there is one thing the Vale care about Is there honour if something happened to there boy Lord it would shame them for a thousand years, and possible cause another war.
The boy Lords Uncle/ step Father/ maybe actual Father if you believe the rumours (personally I do) peter is good at protecting his interest and at the moment that includes very much the young Lord of the vale. He has returned to the vale to rally the knights so we may see the former Mummas boy next season as the Lords of the Vale are off to the North, I am interested to see what Robin does when he finds out that Sansa is married to Ramsay (remember she was promised to him and they were planning to throw people from the moon door.) if we do see Robin away from his precious Vale it will be interesting.
I believe he earns his second place as the Vale is ready for the winter, remember it stayed out of the war of the 5 kings so it was able to harvest its crops unlike so many of the other kingdoms, he is well protected by loyal Lords and is next in line for Riverrun even though the Freys do currently have it, but don’t let that upset you, (as everyone knows he is still alive and Uncle Edumure has no kids) I do hope Robin grows up as he seems to be less sickly in the books, I think he MAY survive next season as I can’t see Little finger letting anything happen to him.
AND HERE IT IS DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!
Number 1 House BAELISH
Petyr Baelish also known as little finger is Lord of Harrenhal, Lord Paramount of the
Trident, and Lord Protector of the Vale, and now even Warden of the North. He has come a long way since being a poor lord with no money a small title, and very little lands.
This Man has pulled everyones strings, had sex with his foster sister, impregnated her, convinced her husband to let him in the same building as her, (all while being in love with her sister) he then betrayed the starks, killed a king, married a rich widow, made out with his niece, killed his wife, blamed it on suicide, became BFF’s with the people who wanted to kill him, arranged a marriage to Sansa to a Bolton escorted Sansa to marry the Boltons who were BFFs with the Lannisters and now convinced the Lannisters to name him Warden of the North. Even if it is only on paper, he is back north with the lords of the vale (maybe even his step son) to retake the north for the Lannisters.
To be honest I don’t know what he wants there are rumours that he is going to be husband number 3 for Sansa, and as we all know his obsession with Sansas Mum it is a safe bet.
Safe to say this guy is still alive (although he has no immediate family) and although the Faith destroyed his Brothel business and cost him a lot of coins, he still a Lord has knights of the vale, his castles will continue to make money for him and he believes Stannis will kill the Boltons anyway or the North will kill the Boltons so no matter who wins HE will win.
He is a shady crafty guy who in the end I believe will have a sticky end causing his line to be extinct but for now he wins this list. And I look forward to his story line next season, especially is Sansa ever discover he betrayed poor old dead Ned.
Neither the less I feel he has earnt the golden crown because once house bailish had very little lands no gold and no titles now they have quite a lot of each, in a season where most have fallen he has risen higher than anyone else this season by getting the hell out of dodge when the Faith came to town and convincing the power hungry Lannisters to make him the warden of the North and earns his place at number one.
So what did you think let me know!
just a quick disclaimer I got the pictures off the internet please dont sue.
