So Game of Thrones is happening soon. You excited? Yea, we’re excited, too. Hmm… wonder if you’re one of those people who watch each episode right after it comes out, or patiently – more like saintly – wait for the whole season to come out and then BINGE! And as we watch, we get angry and crazy over what happens, but then go right back to it, like a toxic relationship, if you ask me.
And while not everyone agrees about their favorite characters – though everyone loves Jon Snow, duh! – everyone absolutely agrees on hating a hand full of characters. So let’s take a look at the list of 10 most hated people on the show; don’t forget to vote for your choice!
PS: We all would’ve loved to add George Martin to the list. I mean, the man’s gotta be pure evil for killing Jon Snow (WHY???!!). It’s just that we’re careful not to offend him: at best he’d kill off Daenerys, at worse he’d keep Jon Snow dead!!!
Every one’s favorite guy! Well, everyone’s favorite guy to f*cking despise, more like it! No one, and I mean no one didn’t fantasize about good ol’ Joff being killed off in some bloody and brutal way. I mean, the boy’s the spawn of Satan! Seriously! Killing prostitutes, embarrassing people, chopping off Ned’s head – yeah, this still hurts! – there’s just nothing to not hate about the boy! And while you probably heard people cheer across states back in April 2014 when he got poisoned, you gotta admit. The boy deserved a much more violent death.
Otherwise known as the local psychopath. It seems like Martin kind of missed Joffrey, so he decided to try his hand at another twisted character. But unlike Joff – who’s pure evil and an utmost coward – Ramsay’s pure evil and pure reckless, too. Now, granted, the guy has some serious daddy issues, but you cannot once sympathize with him. He goes from one level of crazy – chopping Theon’s wiener off – to an all new level – raping Sansa – in a heartbeat!
The Red B* – euh, Witch. She is literally the Devil’s… girlfriend. Back when she was first introduced, she was just another chick that loved to strip down to the nude and have sex, quite a lot. Then, you know, brainwashing Stannis to start her killing spree turned us against her. And birthing a demonic dark shadowy evil baby is one thing, but burning cute little girls at the stake? That’s totally not OK!
So this guy just decided to ruin his reputation for life. I mean, we hated him as kids when he played Mr. Filch (any Harry Potter fans, here?), then he goes ahead and takes another role as filthy, miserable, bitter old man in Game of Thrones. Why do we hate the Lord of the Crossing? Let’s all remember that one time he aided the Lannisters in killing off Rob Stark, his wife, his unborn child, and his mother. Do we need to say more?
The mother of all evil – that literally being Joffrey up there – who’s one of the most hated characters in the series. She plays her sympathy cards quite well, though, acting the poor cheated wife, the poor broken mother, and the poor raped lover. She also may have drawn a few feels from us back when she confessed to her sins and was shamed all the way to the castle… but no one’s fooled! We probably hate her even more for being such a sly and doubled faced villain.
What a shocker; another Lannister! So we may have simply disliked the man for being a cruel father and a selfishly driven warlord and politician, but throughout the series, we learned to freaking despise the man. I mean, sleeping with your youngest son’s prostitute may have counted as mere A-hole class behavior, but being behind the whole “make him fall in love and break him as I sleep with you on the side” charade… that’s just low!
And also another Bolton! Seriously, these two families have the worst gene pools in Westeros and beyond. Roose Bolton is the father of psycho-Ramsay-path, and you could tell the rotten apple didn’t fall far from the tree – but it did get exponentially damaged by the fall. Bolton Sr. was a Stark ally at first, you know sons of the North sticking together and stuff. But that didn’t last long as he was Frey’s partner in the Red Wedding. ‘nuff said.
‘Little Finger’ is quite the confusing one: we all like him one day, then we hate him the other, then we like him again, then we hate him… the guy’s quite the handful; he goes around causing people’s deaths, sticking knives in their backs – betraying Ned Stark probably keeps the hate percentage slightly higher than the like – and just smiles and winks and charms his way through all of it. I mean, you’ve got to agree, he’s the most charismatic villain in the series. But a villain is a villain!
Well, let’s just all get it out and over with: we’re happy Brienne finished this one off. He wasn’t getting any Daddy of the Year Awards, so he’s better off dead! Sleeping with a crazy witch, cheating on an even crazier wife… that’s all fine and dandy. But killing your little brother, treating your loyal right-hand man like a dog, and burning your own cute little daughter at the stake… well, we’re happy he’ dead. Let’s leave it at that.
Oooooh. That fowl and loathsome little brat! I’d vote him second to Joffrey, if I were you! We all thought little orphaned Olly was such a poor and sad little boy who has found a big brother in brave and valiant Jon Snow. After all, the Wildlings killed his family and he has no one left but the men of the Night’s Watch. But in case you forgot, he killed Ygritte – the circumstances do not matter! – and then the treacherous little imp when ahead and dealt the final stab to Jon Snow. Well, hope he gets what he deserves at the hands of Ghost… or should I say teeth!
