Game of Thrones is an intricate world woven from the mind of George R.R. Martin. And while I haven't finished the books yet (I read 1-1/2) I watch the show religiously. There are many characters that we all love, but then there are those characters that we're just supposed to hate. Living or dead, they were probably awful and deserved whatever they got or whatever is coming to them.

But there are some terrible characters that I still found myself liking...just a smidgen.

Here they are:

1. Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish

He's a conniving little bugger, but there's something likable about the guy. Maybe it's his wit or the fact that he seems to know everything about everybody, but I find myself hoping he dies while simultaneously wanting him to be victorious.

Why do you do this to me, Littlefinger?

2. Joffrey Lannister

Oh, boy. He was an ass-hat, that's for sure. And while I was so happy to see him die with his horrid mother watching, I was a little disappointed. I mean, he was awful, I know, but there was something about watching his awfulness and then watching Margaery outsmart and manipulate him, that was pretty entertaining.

3. Ramsay Bolton

Put down the pitchforks and torches, please. I can explain myself. Well, kind of. Before the whole controversial "rape" scene with Sansa, I liked Ramsay in a weird way. Obviously, now I can't wait to see Sansa and Theon team up and gut this dude.

But there used to be a tiny, miniscule place for him in my twisted heart. Thinking about it now, he probably shouldn't be on this list....Oh, well.

4. Sandor "The Hound" Clegane

Ever since I saw Sandor save Sansa from being raped that one time, I've had a sense of respect for him. Like, hey. Maybe he's not all bad, you know? And then he told Joffrey off. And then he helped Arya, even though he continued to try to make people believe it was solely for his benefit.

And yeah, I'm still not trusting that he's dead. I never saw his dead body, so...
