8 Things We Hope To See on ‘Game of Thrones' This SeasonGina Vaynshteyn

I’m a Game of Thrones fanatic, but I haven’t read the books. This is a curse as well as a blessing, since I’m dying to find out what happens, yet I’m thankful the story is being doled out to me in yearly doses. For once in my life, I am not allowing myself to read the books first because by nature, I would tell my fiancée and friends everything and ruin their lives. So, since I haven’t read the books, I HAVE NO IDEA what is going to happen. For all I know, everyone except King Joffrey dies, which honestly might happen at this point.

I want to talk about Game of Thrones because I seriously cannot wait until April. I watched the trailer for season four approximately twenty times and I still can’t get over how awesome it’s going to be. These are some things that I really want to see come April, when Game of Thrones has taken over my life. 

1. White Walkers in action

The “true war” or whatever that means, is supposedly going to be over what exists beyond The Wall, right? We already know that zombie-like creatures rule the glacier paths and they don’t seem very nice. What exactly are White Walkers and are we going to see them do scary things?

2. More Jon Snow Ygritte

I guess now that Jon Snow is back with the Night’s Watch (or is he?) he can’t engage in any explicit relationships, but I want Ygritte and Jon to happen again because they were so amazing together and Jon is a total babe. I am positive he would be such a good boyfriend if only Ygritte wasn’t a Wildling and stood for everything he’s against. She is SO fierce, though!

3. Khaleesi’s bad ass dragons destroying things

I was a tiny bit disappointed when I only saw the shadow of one of Khaleesi’s dragon children whizzing around, because I am looking forward to some dragon destruction! Dragons are the coolest. Especially’s Khaleesi’s, because they are super protective of their mom and she of them. I can’t wait to see what kinds of shenanigans those four get into.

4. More of King Joffrey saying, “I’m their king!” and Tyrion Lannister slapping his face

Oh, Joffrey. Everyone knows you’re not a true king if you have to say it! King Joffrey is truly the most evil character on television. I don’t know whether it’s his demonic grin or his terrible haircut, but I really hate this guy. I don’t want him to die quite yet, but I definitely want him to get bitched out. Like, who do you think you are, you evil tween?

5. Arya avenging her family’s death

Poor Arya! Just before she is reunited with her mom and brother, they get stabbed and gutted. Arya has led such a tough life. If anyone deserves to kill King Joffrey, it’s this girl right here.

6. More Brienne

Brienne is one of the strongest and purest characters on Game of Thrones. I love that she takes Jaime back to King’s Landing even though she disagrees with Lady Stark and despises Jaime’s guts. I love how the two become friends and Jaime saves her from a bear. What has happened to Brienne? Bring her back!

7. Tyrion catching a break

Tyrion may be the smartest character most worthy of the throne (besides Khaleesi, I have her back always) because although he’s always got a trick up his sleeve, he’s always makes decisions and sacrifices for the greater good. Tyrion, who has been ridiculed his entire life and accused of killing his own mother, is truly pitiable, especially when Tywin basically spits on his face after Tyrion single-handedly won that major battle. I hope Tyrion has some good things come his way.

8. An actual battle

This is an HBO series, so I honestly want to see some quality, epic battles. I want swordsmanship, backflips, and expert archery. I’m pretty much expecting Lord of the Rings worthy war scenes, because above all, this show is about fighting to regain power, right? I think we’re ready.

  1. Tyrion catching a break? Ha! Sorry to dissapoint you but no…
    Personally I’m dying to see Oberyn “The Red Viper” Martell and his paramour Ellaria Sand, House Martell is one of my favourite houses and these two are the most badass couple.

  2. 1. Very few whitewalkers in this season or in the books for that matter. Hopefully the next book will have more of The Others.
    2. Wildlings attack Castle Black. Jon Snow leads the defense and ultimately fights them off and finds Ygrittes body with arrows in the aftermath aka she dies. There is no fairy tale love in Westeros. You kill or you die.
    3. Not too many dragons in this part of the story but if youre lucky, the tv show may add a few scenes with them.
    4. King Joffrey will die in about episode 3 or 4 and Sansa and Tyrion get blamed. Sansa flees Kings Landing while Tyrion is arrested and put on trial.
    5.Arya will continue to wander with the Hound and not do much. She has a good ending for this series but she won’t have any vengeance as of yet.
    6. Brienne has an intresting story here. You will get more of Brienne. Yay :)
    7. Tyrion gets blamed for Joffreys murder and is put on trial by his own sister. His story is a great one for this season. Be excited for Tyrion and his future midget mistress.
    8.An actual battle? Oh, there’s plenty of dirty bloodshed in this season to come….did I mention that Ygritte dies with a chest full of arrows?

  3. Haha Oh you want Tyrion to catch a break? that’s cute

  4. OH MY GOD, I CAN’T.

    Khaleesi

    Khaleesi is a Dothraki title referring to the wife of the khal. A khaleesi’s status varies greatly from khalasar to khalasar. She could be very influential, riding next to the khal, or she could be worth practically less than the khal’s horse, since the khal’s bloodriders would sometimes share the khaleesi, but never share the khal’s horse.

    It is Dothraki tradition that if a khal dies, his khaleesi must retire to join the crones at Vaes Dothrak, known as the dosh khaleen. Daenerys Targaryen, however, refused to do this.

    Her name is NOT, “Khaleesi”, it’s Daenerys Targaryen. It would be like calling Joffrey “King”. “Khaleesi” is a title that she long when Khal Drogo died and you sound foolish every. single. time.time you refer to Daenerys as, “Khaleesi.” At least call her “THE Khaleesi” if you must, but how about this? Since you clearly love the show so much…READ THE BOOKS! Books are so cool!
    Goodbye, Giggles!!!

  5. Yeah you really need to read the books! This season is going to be CRAZY. But most of your wishes for this season are not going to happen, sorry to disappoint you.

  6. Read the books! They’re so good and answer all of your questions!
    (Just FYI, the Mother of Dragons’ name isn’t Khaleesi, it’s Daenerys Targaryen, or Dany. Khaleesi is just a Dothraki title referring to the “wife of the khal,” and she’s for sure not Drogo’s wife anymore. That would be gross.)

    • YES! And here I thought I was the only one who noticed (and cringed!) every time someone refers to Daenerys as Khaleesi. It’s her title, not her name. The unrelenting use of her former title undermines her roots, I think. Daenerys is a pretty name, and is 100% her own. In this context, khaleesi reeks of possession and subordination–”wife of the khal”. Daenerys has proved that she is a woman coming to terms with her power; she doesn’t need to be tagged as a property of anyone. It’s like referring to a woman as “Housewife” instead of using her own name.

      But hey, that’s just my opinion.

    • Thank you for this! I am tired of people calling her Khaleesi as if it’s her name! I didn’t even read the books and I knew this.

      I’m not meaning to criticize the author of this post. So many people refer to her incorrectly and I always want to be like “you know that’s not her name right?” but I never bother.

      • I know Khaleesi isn’t her name and that it’s the Dothraki term for the khal’s wife, but doesn’t Jorah call her “Khaleesi” all the time? Like, even after Drogo dies? I think that’s why some people still refer her to Khaleesi.

  7. Oh man! What a shame, you really should read the books. All your excitement and questions are so moot now to where the novels stand.
