With so many characters to root for in “Game of Thrones,” it’s sometimes hard to remember that the majority of them are enemies. Fortunately a new teaser for Season 3 is here to remind fans that there aren’t many alliances left standing in Westeros when the hit HBO fantasy series returns.
For those of you who need a quick refresher, Cersei Lannister hates her brother Tyrion for being an imp (among other things), Sansa Stark hates King Joffrey for beheading her father and ruining her dreams, Catelyn Stark hates Jon Snow for being her husband’s bastard and Arya Stark has a long list of those she wishes dead that she is doing her best to shorten. Daenerys is making her way to Westeros to regain the Iron Throne, the Wildlings are heading south across the Wall to invade the land and Stannis Baratheon is livid at everyone who tries to rationalize why he isn’t king by right. Then there’s the audience themselves, who rightly should hate Theon for burning down Winterfell at the end of Season 2.
Even that list is just scratching the surface of the rivalries at play in “Game of Thrones.” Let’s just say that no one will be happy until at least half the characters on the show are dead. So who are you rooting for to win the game of thrones? Let us know in the comments.
“Game of Thrones” returns to HBO on March 31 at 9 p.m. ET.
