The characters of Game Of Thrones are flawed to say the least. Almost everyone has a hidden agenda and tries to push their plots and schemes on others (yes Tyrion, I know they’re the same thing.). In this world of power-hungry douche teens and twisted “twincest”, a few characters stand out as the cream of the crop. While far from perfect, these characters and their complexities are what made season 2 for me. If they all got together and formed their own house it would be named Wu-Tang, because they are nothing to f*** with.
5. Jaqen H’ghar
Jaqen was definitely a high point this season. The friendly neighborhood assassin helped Arya Stark during her time in the service of Tywin Lannister (more on him later). When Arya makes the decision to save his life, he repays her…with death. I was wary of him at first, but when he actually delivered on his promises to Arya I was sold. Not to mention the way he kills her targets. I only wished there was more of him.
I spent a lot of this season being intrigued by Osha, and not just because of the full frontal nudity. A Wildling who tries to kill little Bran Stark, she becomes a sort of slave to the boy. The relationship turns into something much more beautiful and while all the other Starks are away she becomes sort of a big sister to him. When the shit hits the fan in Winterfell she shows that her true loyalty will always be to the little lords.
