SE5EP6: Lost Characters

Recommended Posts

Wow this thread has really made me realize just how much the show has either forgotten, thinks we forgot, or just swept under the rug. THere are some pretty big things left out in here. I have no doubt most are gone for good.

Some of the names mentioned don't really make sense. To be fair, Varys is supposed to be missing at this point, and I'm not sure how or when we would have seen Walder Frey since the RW (though I wish we got some of the other Freys).



The disappearance of any Northern lords, the entire Riverlands and Iron Islands, and so on bothers me greatly, though. And I'm surprised no one mentioned Illyrio.

Great subject for a post! People here are right that we don't need to see these people. A status update would be great. A device like Maester Aemon's letter from Essos could be quite useful here (side note: who did that letter come from? Illyrio?)

The Greatjon apparently went wherever whores go after doing the "King in the north!" stuff. The rest of the North and the Riverlands soon followed.

This made me laugh. The only people that seem to be left in the North are the Boltons and Lyanna Mormont.

Where are Craster's wives?

Most likely part of the army of the dead. Shame Jon couldn't have come to his join them now or fight them later realization at Craster's.

Somehow Lost Characters seems more like Lost storylines. Sadly I think the show will end up with some things like the show Lost where we are expected to forget it was ever a thing. (Gendry, Rickon, Freys, Riverlands, Ironborn, etc)



Hell, Ser Robert Strong/UnGregor has more storyline right now than most of them and all he did was twitch and have a dwarf head given to Qyburn.

Seriously! I know there are so many characters to keep track of, but I forgot about people like Gendry. Who at the time he was on the show, they made it look like he would have a bigger role to play.

Nymeria the Direwolf? She was running around eating Freys in the books, leading a huge pack of regular wolves.

My dad, who is strictly show, and I were talking about Arya, and how Meryn Trant was on her list and going to Braavos. When I brought up how apparently the Brotherhood Without Banners were no longer on her list, since she no longer mentions Beric and Thoros, we probably won't see them again. He didn't even remember them until I mentioned it, so I guess that's what they're hoping for.

To be fair, a lot of these characters are lost or forgotten in the books as well. I hope we don't end up with a "How I Met Your Mother" type wrap-up.

I think they are the lucky ones in all this. Specially the Greyjoys. I mean, looking to Porne they really dodged a bullet. I'm looking to you, Euron.

Euron is a badass. He would have been whitewashed.

I fear the show, if freed from any consequence, would make Euron some kind of emo. I can even see his band: "Blue Lips and The Mutes"

One good thing to come from cutting the Ironborn is we don't have to suffer through Damphair. My most hated character by a country mile, I always read his pontificating rants in a Captain Birdseye voice which probably didn't help.

Lost Characters? Is this about the fact that Mr Eko showed up this past week? Instead of him being involved in the heroin market, he's now doing business with cock merchants, I wonder.......is that about LOST revenue? Eh, this gods awful show isn't worthy of jokes, not sure why I bother. :dunno:

They'll definitely go that route, you'll just see the White Walkers killing them.
