Ok just watched the Game of Thrones season 5 massacres.
Spoiler alerts!!! Many big characters die!
Or as far as we can tell they do.
BEFORE YOU READ SPOILER ALERTS !!To start they are running out of characters people like, to keep going on if indeed they actually killed Jon Snow. I’ll start with that one alone. The whole Knights watch and wildling faux pas, has made Jon Snow a Knights Watch piñata, with a kid Ollie delivering the final death stab, so it seems.
I truly hope this isn’t it, but it seems it is the end for Jon Snow on Game of Thrones.
The bastard of the Stark family seemed to be the last main character that everyone was rooting for. If he is really dead, I think the viewers are going to drop as fast as a Stark family reunion.
SPOILER ALERT Stanis Baratheon also appeared to eat it tonight, and although not as beloved as Jon Snow, it is another core character dead, perhaps.
To be completely honest, I'm a big fan of the show, and have read some of the books, but no all of them.
I see a big divide between many on the changes the show is going through from the books, and it seems, many are turned off.
Since I haven’t read all of them, I only read book I and about half of book 2 , and a small portion of book 4 because I didn’t want to get a head of the show I can say that at the rate they are killing off some of these characters, , I'm not sure how much interest I will have .
Season 1 Eddard Stark dies, soon after Robert Baratheon dies, and the red wedding episode Rob Stark, and mamma Stark eat it also. You have few Starks left, including Sansa who is surprising many on how far she’s come, and Arya Stark.
We didn’t see Bran this season as he’s butt buddies with Hodor in a tree, with his eyes all rolled into the back of his head. and I guess will have a bigger role in season 6.
Truthfully, I don’t care all that much for Bran, Sansa, or Arya.
I liked Arya more before the whole faceless man thing a ma jig.
I could be wrong, but it just seems the remaining characters that are liked, are pretty much dead, or seem to be. Some left alive are either not as liked , or the hated ones, like Joffrey, Tywin Lannister, and the daughter killing Stanis are done. I don’t think there is many disappointed fans with these deaths. I could be wrong though. Do any of you wish they were still alive?
Joffrey was great to hate, for sure.
Do people have the patience or like the remaining characters enough to keep watching passionately, like the first 2 -3 seasons?
What’s your thoughts? Have too many beloved characters been killed to truly keep your interest come Game of Thrones Season 6? I feel Jon Snow’s death, if confirmed, was the last great character that fans rooted for to possibly die, and it may have sucked the desire to continue watching this how IMO.
What do you think?
