6 Characters in GOT that we badly miss

Updated on January 17, 2019

Game of Thrones

Well now that the Wall is down and the Night king marches into Westeros with his army of the dead, we are anticipating a titanic clash between the living and the dead.

Thank you Viserion!

When you play a game of thrones you win or you die.

— George R R Martin

Let us revisit the dead!

#1 Ned Stark

Yes, you saw that coming obviously. We all rooted for the good man and dreamt of him sitting on the Iron Throne. The cleanest character possibly in the whole show (barring the tower of joy scene). The one man who was trying to save a falling empire from the royal lies and stood up for what he thought was right. He lived by his principles and that's what got him killed. We wish we could get more of him even if as another of Bran's visions.

#2 Oberyn Martell

The red viper is a supreme example of what happens when we let our emotions get the better of us. We witness his arrival at King's Landing in Season 4. Even though he grabs a screen-time of merely half hour yet he manages to leave a huge impact on us. Returning to avenge his sister and nephew's deaths, you can see the burning rage in his eyes that finally gave out when The Mountain crushed his skull in a moment's advantage.

#3 Robb Stark

Robb Stark, the eldest son of Ned Stark made both the Lannisters and Talisa go weak on their Knees. He was declared 'King in the North' after his father was executed by Joffrey. Robb had a keen sense of honor and justice, which he received from his father. He was fair, caring, and willing to do anything to keep his family safe. He also expended tremendous sympathies to innocent victims of war such as Martyn and Willem Lannister. Robb was very much his father's son, hence he had his father's weaknesses. Like Eddard, Robb had a tendency to put honor before reason. Also when he broke his vow to marry Frey's daughter and ended up taking Talisa, his doom was destined. The Young Wolf was slaughtered along with his family by the Boltons and the Freys in the infamous episode of the red wedding.

Cersei Lannister: "Robb Stark is a child."

Tyrion Lannister: "Who's won every battle he's fought!"

#4 HODOR!!!

How can you not miss him? He uttered a single word throughout the entire show and still managed to hit our hearts. Despite his large size and strength, Hodor is the gentle soul who was terrified of violence even done by himself. Probably the last of the people loyal to the Starks. We still cannot get over the cries of 'Hold the Door'

#5 Ygritte

She had us falling over her with her northern accent and her constant wilderness. She encapsulated a charming young lady with the fierce brute of a warrior. Not even Jon Snow could give up the chance of jumping into the hot spring with her. We really wished to see more of her taming the white wolf. Well good thing is in real life Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie has it going great and we cannot help but envy them.

"You know nothing Jon Snow"

#6 Syrio Forel

Now many of you may have read a whole lot of Syrio or Bravos theories, but even leaving those aside he is mysterious in his own ways. 'The first sword Bravos' as he called himself was hired by Ned himself to teach Arya the art of swordfighting. Every lesson he gave her had deep philosphies to be connected with one's life. He played an evident role in Arya becoming an assassin. His final scene where he faces off three men of the kingsguard with a wooden sword thus giving Arya a chance to escape is still one of the most debated scenes. Even though we miss him, I guess when Arya killed Meryn Trant, syrio was avenged.
