Be warned: This post contains spoilers for the first two seasons of Game of Thrones.
In every TV show there are characters that you just can’t stand. Maybe they double-crossed a favourite character or perhaps they’ve started burning people alive. Either way, you want to see them meet a grisly end.
The beauty of Game of Thrones is that the possibility a particularly dislikeable character will become intimately acquainted with the pointy end of a sword is quite high.
Here are five people that we don’t want to see make it to season four.
Petyr Baelish (Littlefinger)
There are just too many sneaky people in this show. If I had to pick one to be killed off, it would have to be Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish. He looks like he’s going to tie someone to a train track and laugh maniacally as the locomotive comes hurtling towards them.
Baelish is constantly whispering in ears, gathering information and manipulating people to his will. He’s also responsible for betraying Ned Stark (the most honourable man in the whole show). In fairness to him though, he did warn Ned not to trust him pretty early on.
But still, no one can ever be forgiven for betraying Sean Bean.
From day one, Sansa has been getting on my nerves. At first it was just her general demeanour but then incidents like the one with the butcher boy just tipped annoyance over the edge of the cliff and it turned into hatred. As soon as she gets a whiff of that throne she completely throws away any sense of loyalty to her family and sides with Joffrey. She’s had so many opportunities to end the war but she’s just been in ‘scared sheep’ mode since the season one finale. All she has to do is kill Joffrey and end the war. She might be a little bit screwed but it would be all gravy for the rest of the Starks!
Ah, Samwell. Why is he so useless? All he’s done for the whole show is cry and fall over. I know we’re meant to feel sympathy for the man but he’s just too annoying. When he started taking a liking to one of Crasters’ daughter’s I was genuinely excited for a moment, because I was thinking, “Yes! This is idiot is going to be gutted!”
Unfortunately, that still hasn’t happened. Yet.
She’s the most stereotypically evil character in the show. She drinks poison like it’s nothing, gives birth to shadow assassins and talks in the most evil tone imaginable. She’s leading Stannis down a dark road and to top it all off, she’s even started burning people alive.
What a lovely lady.
He’s a wanker. What more do you need to know?
