The fifth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is just a few days away. Every year, new characters are introduced and others are killed off, forcing everyone to constantly re-evaluate the answer to, “Who is your favorite character?”
Honestly, after the events of the Red Wedding, viewers' opinions were scattered. In a series known for its character complexity, its ability to kill off fan-favorites and repeated shifts of political power, it’s no surprise that fans are deeply divided over who should ultimately sit on the Iron Throne.
With Season 5 finally making its way to HBO on Sunday, legions of fans are abuzz as to which character they’re most excited to catch up with after the shocking Season 4 finale.
Below is our poll of who people most want to revisit when "Games of Thrones" returns for Season 5. The most popular characters are featured below. Simply click your favorite and find out if the rest of the public agrees with your choice. While there are a bevy of wonderful characters who didn’t make the poll, we’re not forgetting about them.
For example, a vote for Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) is also a vote to catch up with Melisandre (Carice van Houten) and Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) as they’re both so close to him. In that same vein, a vote for Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) could also be considered a vote for Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) or Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman).
Frankly, you can argue with your friends for your choice’s superiority however you want. Cast your vote now and get the argument started ahead of the Season 5 premiere. Really give it some thought, you don’t want to be the person who picks someone like Ned Stark (Sean Bean) too early.
