    Dunno I just add it to the reasons why I think he is one of the creepiest motherfuckers who ever creeped

    Minor/offscreen characters you want to see more of

    Robb Stark, two fairly fleeting appearances in two books was never enough

    Cutest moments

    Stannis holding off on burning Edric until all three Kings were dead really bought a tear to my eye

    Ask D&D

    Well, we kinda forgot about those scenes Did Tyrion hit his head a few too many times in the sea voyage to Danearys?

    Greatest battle commanders at the start of ASoIaF

    I put Jon Connington in as a dark horse, the guy was obviously a decent commander during RR but has not stagnated, instead learning from mistakes, constantly campaigning and maintaining an edge. Definitely one to watch out for

    All time Top Fighters

    Well it’s hard to disagree based on anything other than personal preference, even the truly great fighters in Westeros and elsewhere could be dispatched by dozens, if not hundreds of their counterparts, there are simply too many swordwielders out there to count. Even the loss and death of a participant in a personal duel isn’t a definitive answer of who is better, merely who was better on that day, it’s just unlike in a heavyweight title fight there usually is not a rematch. GRRM has sprinkled the story with lesser and often barely named characters who would possibly clean the clocks of some of our series’ main characters, I personally could not see Jon Snow beating the guy on the Blackwater who mowed through House Fossoway. In short you have said all the right names, but in many cases you could change the order and I could not really argue except to say ‘but I like Robert more than Jaime cos Warhammer’

    All time Top Fighters

    It’s hard to argue with your list, but I believe Hot Pie deserves an honourable mention, armed with barely a scrap of armour or weaponry but a truly fearsome battlecry that puts despair into the hearts of men he held off a ridiculous amount of Lannister soldiers in a small fort, and even survived the encounter

    Wheely? Discussing the "breaking of the wheel"

    It could work, I heard there will be a sequel and the story involves Davos’ Master plan, he is now in the Red Keep, with access to Qyburns books, all he needs do is find Stannis’ cold preserved body and bring him back from the dead, there is no chance he’d allow a Red Priest to get the credit for his resurrection. After Stannis reassumed control of the Stormlands from a Gendry who died childless, Stannis is free to throw his hat into the mix for election after Bran dies and seemingly for all eternity until he wins, when he does he is King, forever, the wheel is broken, the problem solved. Or to give the Westerosi some credit, Brian dies and his successor is appointed, his successor however has children and he tries to reinstate the old monarchy style, civil war erupts, team election win and change the rules again so that the new King may only serve a term before another must be elected. Until Stannis’ resurrected corpse wins and remains in power forever anyway

    Use one word to describe the series finale.

    Seeing the bigger bigger picture.

    It’s a good story? We all like a good story

    Drogon's demise

    Last scene is Drogon being fed by Sam Tarly, Maester of the Citadel, poisoner if dragons

    Northmen slaughtering civilians

    Both books and show do not hide that the Northmen are as bad as anyone without proper leadership, in fact throughout the war of 5 Kings in the novels we hear of only 2 men who keep their soldiers in hand, Randyll Tarly and Stannis Baratheon

    Protagonist suddenly goes crazy in last chapter of epic

    I will say that I don’t think it was uncommon for a city that resisted to be brutally sacked, and KL had resisted, they may have thrown down their weapons in the end but they fought back and killed hostages, Tywin would probably have reacted in the same way

    Protagonist suddenly goes crazy in last chapter of epic

    It’s an outcome I expected with an appalling buildup, they have connected the dots but not really in a way that makes much tangeable sense. I complained about Stannis in S5, how he went from considering burning his bastard nephew whom he had never met to awaken a freaking Dragon, but in no way would sacrifice his daughter, to burning his daughter cos ‘bad weather’ I was told at the time that it didn’t really matter because the outcome was the same as it will be in the books and should get over it Here it is, context does matter, reaching c without really adding a and b makes for a poor story. Like I say, expected outcome, decent delivery, undermines by a poor buildup
