[NO SPOILERS] Through 2 episodes: Favorite new character

Recommended Posts

Mance is terrible. Tormund is ok for now, he isnt half as awesome as hook tormund.

Right now I'll throw my vote Thoros' way.

The girl who plays Meera is extremley cute.

I agree. Ellie Kendrick is a terrific actress as well. I can't wait to see more of her.

I've been pleased with all the new characters so far, really. Jojen, Meera, Olenna, Tormund and Thoros in particular.

The second I saw Jojen and Meera I thought to myself, "Nailed it!" Those two are literally perfect for those roles. I always really liked Meera Reed as a character, never much liked Jojen though.

QoT without a doubt. Thoros and Anguy were really good too. However, it feels like anyone who gets lines as written in the books seems to stand out. Tywin's rant to Tyrion last week gave me goosebumps, the same as Olena's conversation with Sansa.

I'll have to go with Meera - I loved her introduction and I think the actress has the right aura to play her. Closely followed by the QOT Olenna Tyrell an her wavy blue veil.

Most disappointing I have to agree with a lot of others is Mance, to me he's very much just a regular fur-clad wildling like the rest of his army, which is sad 'cause he's such a standout character in the books.

Olenna, clearly. It's funny that she should without much effort outshine such a prominent character + actor as Mance/Hinds.

Thoros.

Everyone else has been sort of flat--Manse, Queen of Thorns, not sure about the Reeds either.

I totally hate the Reed's in the book, so cheers for making them seem pretty awesome on the show.

I absolutely LOVED Jojen. That dream sequence and the Howland Reed namedrop, along with the attitude of a carefree old man... yeah. Best addition so far.
