He’s been a knight (often), an archbishop (twice), a dean, a priest, a doctor.??There’s still plenty of major roles to be cast, for example ser Davos Seaworth. Myself, I can’t wait for the second season to begin!??Favorite Quote from Season 1??Below is a poster gallery from Season 1 featuring some of the juicier quotes from leading characters. I was wondering what everybody’s favorite quote was…???While I found it hard to choose since there are so many good ones, my favorite is Jon Snow’s quote “I am the Watcher on the Wall.” The quote stuck with me because of the trials and tribulations Jon went through in becoming a member of the Night’s Watch. Without giving away any spoilers, the fact the he could utter these words- and do so proudly- I found very poignant.??Obviously there are so many great quotes in Season 1 from so many characters, so maybe you have another (Tyrion quotes anyone?)…
