There is no denying that Game of Thrones, whether you are a fan of the books, TV show or both, is excellent. For those unaware of the plot, it follows the tale of several families in a fantasy land fighting for control of The Iron Throne, King's Landing and by extension the Seven Kingdoms. If you haven't seen the show, get onto it. It is one of the best produced, directed, written and acted shows currently running on television, and is adored by both critics and fans. The real genius behind the success of Game of Thrones is the very relatable characters, who react as real people would in similar situations. The spread of characters throughout the show is the major thing that leads to this point. With the series known for its brutal treatment of characters, many fans have hitlists of characters who they hope will get knocked off gruesomely, and I have devised my own list of characters who everyone hates. The following list contains spoilers for some people haven't watched the first season of Game of Thrones before...
6. Sansa Stark
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHaCyTFwjvw Sansa has a rare talent as a character; while she is incredibly annoying, and many fans hate her with a passion, she isn't a character that would make it onto fan's list of characters who deserve to die. While saying that, not many would feel saddened by Sansa's death if it were to occur. Sansa is annoying, even more so when compared to the rest of her family. Start from her father Eddard "Ned" Stark, who died defending the truth. Her older brother Robb, who is King of the North and riding down to King's Landing to challenge the Lannisters, Jon Snow who skipped out on the Starks since he does not share their name and went to join the Black and Arya Stark, Sansa's younger sister, who escaped from King's Landing, and then Harrenhal to try and connect back with the rest of her family. What has Sansa done? Apart from being utterly useless and whiny, she sold out Arya and Nymeria to the King, calling her father out as a traitor, calling for her mother and brother to recognise Joffrey and pledge loyalty, despite her family's hatred of the Lannisters, mainly for not seeing Joffrey for what he really was, and taking his side against her own family on numerous occasions.
While Edan has predominantly studied History and Politics, he also has a deep affection for all things sports, and has been a fan of the wrestling since he was a child, and often had several of the professional wrestlers moves tried out on him by his older brother.
Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, Edan is a passionate supporter of the Carlton Football Club in the AFL, and is a fan of Kane in the WWF/WWE. Edan also watches The Newsroom, Game of Thrones, Community, How I Met Your Mother, The League, Big Bang Theory, and Arrow.
