Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones remains a ratings phenomenon over ten years after its debut. Based on George R.R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, it’s an epic fantasy series with intertwining plot lines revolving around power struggles, revenge, redemption and honor issues within multiple plot lines that interweave. There have been shocking deaths as well as graphic scenes of violence such as rape or head-crushing that have become part of its fabric – as evidenced by Ned Stark being murdered at his own wedding; that marked just the start of many deaths that would come over time! It all began with George R.R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (and still does) is beloved fantasy epic, filled with multiple plotlines woven together – it remains popular today!

Next year, Cersei Lannister executed what has come to be known as the Purple Wedding and beheaded Joffrey and Oberyn Martell before wiping out Baelor during Season 4 with her terrifying Winds of Winter finale.

These deaths and destruction engaged audiences, but what truly distinguished this show was its ability to make us care about its characters – especially female ones like Arya Stark who, despite committing horrifying acts herself, maintained her humanity even while doing her job as an assassin. While Arya may have seen or inflicted unthinkable acts of brutality and degradation upon others, she still displayed compassion as evidenced by reaching out to Jon Snow, Gendry Snow and even Sandor Clegane (her former kidnapper).

Daenerys Targaryen embodies another example of women with integrity: as the last remaining member of House Dragon, she now rules over a separate population in Westeros. Fighting tirelessly for her cause and garnering many allies along the way – her three dragons serving as her main weapons hatched from eggs received as wedding presents are her primary armament.

Through the series, Bran Stark has experienced numerous strange dreams involving seeing a three-eyed raven. Though it remains unclear what this augurs for Bran or his future plans, we can assume it acts as some kind of time traveling device and can help him learn more about past and future events.

Melisandre is one of the show’s most intriguing characters, worshiping both Lord of Light and Night King while harboring some dark secrets of her own. Reanimating dead people has been one of her many feats on screen, such as when she brought Jon Snow back to life at the end of season seven. But perhaps her most crucial contribution may have been helping bring together warring factions of Westeros at Winterfell; that scene was captivating for any viewer of GoT. Additionally, many critics have applauded acting and production values while some critics have objected to graphic depictions of violence and torture depictions in GoT.
