    Characters like Tormund, The Hound, Bronn etc are a lot funnier and more interesting than a fair few of the main characters.

    I miss Baelish.

    Don't have to "like" him - that's not what he is for - but he and Varys playing political Chess was huge for the show. Myself and a friend had a theory about him which actually (not claiming credit, someone else had the same idea as often happens) a theory that he was still alive and said theory went viral and I'd have loved it - there have been so many character threads that I feel they don't have time to fill, so I think a lot of characters will be killed off without satisfactory resolutions for writing's sake, which is a real shame.

    But because they're secondary characters they are able to be a little more 'throw-away' than the likes of Jon or Danaerys - which means the writers can have a bit more fun with them.

    I've seen quite a few people around the internet bemoaning the fact that the show has moved towards a more traditional fantasy setting now than the first few series which were more about the intrigue and machinations. For me though, it was always going to be the direction it went as soon as we saw ice zombies in the first scene, of the first episode, in the first series.

    The earlier series were perfect for getting people interested, for making viewers care about what happens to characters (whether they wanted good things to happen to them, or bad things) - but in the end it was always going to come down to big battle sequences. In the sort of 'world' that has been created; being clever and manipulative can only get you so far - when it comes to the crunch, it's who has the most men to throw away that will be the "rightful" ruler - something which Cersei pointed out to Littlefinger when he was trying to explain where he believed power came from, and she told one of the Kingsguard to execute him.
