8. Man Up
Youve surely developed a bit of a soft spot for the loveable, if craven, Samwell Tarly. Lacking in grace, speed, skill, courage and just about every other valuable attribute outside of intelligence, hes still managed to jostle himself into the potential favourite character zone for many because hes justso ruddy likeable. And let me just be honest for a second; if I were suddenly inserted into the story, if I suddenly woke up one morning in Westeros, Id be him. Im sure if you really thought about it, you would be too. Season 2 leaves us at a very important junction for Samwell Tarly; surrounded by the horde of undead warriors led by White Walkers, just what will he do next? In story and in life the true gauge of a persons character is in the decisions they make in a crisis. Well, Id label an apocalypse of the undead a crisis and true to form, Samwell is about to make a decision.
