Nearly a year on from the
series finale of Game of Thrones, it can be easy to forget just what a
sprawling tale it was. While the final two seasons fell flat for many fans
in no small part due to the shrinking of that epic scope, there's still an absolutely
absurd number of memorable characters that we got to spend time with over
the eight season run of the show.
Moreover, in its prime Game of Thrones not
only leveraged these characters individually, but through their complex and
multi-layered relationships with each other. Arya Stark certainly stands
on her own two feet as a character, but her relationships with Syrio, The
Hound, Gendry, and Tywin gave her that much more depth and complexity.
However, due to the geography of Westeros and the bloody nature of the story being
told, many of our favorites never shared so much as a single scene together in the show. And yet some of them could have made some of the most insanely intriguing pairs in the show, had they been able to interact.
