Star Sean Bean in ‘Game Of Thrones’

This isn’t a complete listing of the houses and characters in Game of Thrones- there simply isn’t any practical way to display all that information at once. The families of Baratheon, Lannister, Targaryen, Stark and Arryn are represented. On the plus side, the image is SPOILER-FREE.”He’s such a predominant character, straight through all of it, and you think, ‘Wait a minute, what’s happening?’ He’s obviously been betrayed left and right and center, but you never thought it would come to this,” he admitted. “Even the shock on his face before it happens it’s like, ‘But we made a deal.’ It’s a pretty awful ending and the kids are watching as well.” It says something about current American attitudes toward sex that with the exception of the lurid and awful “Californication,” nearly all eroticism on television is past tense. The imagined historical universe of “Game of Thrones” gives license for unhindered bed-jumping — here sibling intimacy is hardly confined to emotional exchange. The Terrible Reign of King Joffrey I’ve never rooted for a kid to be killed on a TV show before, but I’m willing to make an exception for this supremely awful tween. After ordering Ned Stark’s execution, Joffrey has a singer’s tongue cut out and then show’s Sansa her father’s head on a pike. Yes, he’s just a kid, but I hope Robb Stark finds him and makes his death slow and painful.I pored over Wikipedia, consulted fan-made genealogy charts, and read Andrew Leonard’s extremely handy Salon article, which explains the story’s setting and character relationships. The result? Before I’d even watched a minute of Game Of Thrones, I’d already been spoiled for one major character death, one secret romance, and one shocking attempted murder.I’ve always been a bit annoyed by the Khal Drogo storyline because it never tied into the rest of the show, but all is forgiven now that there are dragons. The price Daenerys paid to rescue her Khal was the death of her baby, and even worse, Khal Drogo was only alive in a coma. The Khalisi, who has become increasingly great all season, suffocated him and burned him and the witch doctor on a funeral pyre, along with her three dragon eggs.And I don’t regret it one bit. For one thing, to say that knowing what’s going to happen on Game Of Thrones devalues the show is to say that no one who’s read Martin’s books could enjoy watching it. But more importantly, by preparing, I didn’t have to spend a lot of time during the first few episodes trying to untangle who was who. What I like about Game Of Thrones is that it’s more akin to The Sopranos or Deadwood than it is to a lot of the other sword-and-sorcery TV shows and movies these days.”We were in Malta in the middle of a big square,” he recalled. “A big piazza with hundreds and hundreds of people on a raised platform, I’m making a last speech, I have my hands tied behind back. I kind of say that I have betrayed the realm and I have been a traitor in order to save my children. … It’s real heartbreaking stuff.” The information in the graphic was current and correct at of the time of the Game of Thronespremiere, however that doesn’t mean it will stay that way. You can bet that people will start dying quickly, and without spoiling any of the upcoming episodes, not all of the information shown may be technicallyaccurate.
