I got thinking the other day, the Night King really is the one true king of Westeros (and possibly the world). Here are some reasons:

  • Doesn't have any insubordination in the ranks and highly respected by his people - they'll literally jump off a cliff for him.
  • No incest.
  • Takes care of and raises abandoned babies. No king or queen in recent memory has or would do the same.
  • Straight up guy, knows what he's about, no squabbling or back stabbing.
  • Fantastic athletic ability, first place in westeros olympics for javelin.
  • Knows magic.
  • Doesn't need to eat children to survive unlike Drogon. 
  • Literally is a god, can bring people back from the dead and enlighten them with superior stoic state of mind.

Personally it's my wish that he mows through two or three of the most loved characters per episode as the audience slowly begins to realise just how futile the fight against him is despite all of the climatical game playing from GRRM/D&D inferring Westerosi had a chance.

The audience actually deserves this due to the fact that most of them judged Stannis as a bad character from the show instead of his rightful role as the one true king in the books.

Well, I'm all for yet another option: legions of hell open up a portal to westeros and make everyone their bitches.

The Night King seems to be super OP at the moment. If GRRM wants the living to win, they need enormous luck and some kind of super strong weapon/character. Both would be pretty huge Deus ex Machina and I really don't like that. The third option would be, that they will make the NK dumb from one second to an other, and that would be equally shitty ending. 

PS: You left out the actual winner of the game of thrones from the list. It will be Gendry. I don't understand how you guys don't see it. I refuse to put my vote on anyone else.

Agreed, nk has to go duke nukem for the only non-shit ending. Also, lol cos I only gave y'all the most hated characters to pick from

Wait, where's Garbad??

Actually as it turns out, he told me that he was moving to Korea for a couple of years to take a break from being an accountant/gamer to instead do some charitable work with asian teenagers who were wasting their lives away on video games. Funny how life works out isn't it?

Deus Ex Machina will beat the Night King and win the Iron Throne. He will appoint a regent to govern Westros, while he is off handing Trump a second term which experts will call 'inexplicable' but we here will know the truth. 

 

@Marine, I just started the books but I liked Stannis from HBO except for the burning his daughter alive part.

The HBO show jumped the shark once they ran out of GRRM novels. I'm hoping the next book comes out in my lifetime.

Stannis should've won. Then the only one that actually deserves a victory is the Nk, i don't like it but i hate deus ex machinas more.

 

P.S.: I actually think HBO will kill the blondie and the knower of nothing not before allowing them to have a baby that will reing with the nothern red head as a regent (and the brunette as her hand).

It can't be the ginger freak because he wasn't in that role in the novels. Mance Rayder, the King-Beyond-the-Wall, doesn't get burned alive in the books. For some reason, HBO killed him off and put Tormond in his place. In the books, the Lord of Bones is the one burned alive at Castle Black. 

I think the producers just have favorite actors and change the story to put them in the spotlight. They admit doing this with Sansa. She's a complete nitwit in the books.

So if Mance Rayder doesn't get burned in the books Tormund takes his place and viola. Though this is just wishful thinking since I like his character and the actor himself (Force Meajure was a great film)

 

Though overall from a storytelling perspective The Hound is the most interesting character. He compared to others has a real story arc. He changes not just in power but in character. He is a nuanced persona with good and bad sides. He even fits the prophecy. On the other hand John Snow is a moron who is simply a stereotypical "chosen one", same for Danny. 

 

I think Sansa is still a nitwit in the series. In the last season she wasn't but it was really forced as the season was too short so they couldn't really develop schemes from the more inteligent characters so they just went full on "writer on board" and decided suddenly Sansa was smart and we have to believe them because they say so. It's bad writing. It's so bad it has a name (hence the quote above) for being a screenwriting mistake and cliche.

In some ways I think the series actually does a really good job of cleaning up a lot of the messes that GRRM made and could not write himself out of.  Brienne is embarrassingly bad in the books, but she is a fairly nuanced and believable character in the series.  Euron in the book is just some shallow religious fanatic psycho instead of the genuinely entertaining psycho in the series.  GRRM over wrote Davos, I think the story handles him a lot better. 

Book Stannis was so rigid and one dimensional - duty blah blah, murder brother but its all about doing my duty, burn trees, chop of fingers, but duty first,  FFS he was worse than a DC Comic villain in the book.  In the series you could actually sense the conflict with Davos and his wife and Melisandre, he was a lot more Marvel than DC on screen.

Not to mention the unneeded plot threads with Aegon/Connington and the Golden Co., the ridiculous Dornish prince that goes to woo Dany, all of the excessive Dornish drama, the way overdrawn uprising of the Sept, and of course the lamest of them all the absurdly unneeded Lady Stoneheart BS.

I have read all of the books twice, I really liked them - but honestly the HBO screen writers are crafting a lot better story.  Besides, they are actually going to finish their version, no way in hell that obese 70 y/o multi-millionaire is going to grind out another 2K pages before the strippers and donuts get him.

I can't argue with that. I do hope to read his version of the Hodor bit. My jaw dropped when that happened on the show. GRRM had been planning that nugget for decades.
