Stats & Data

August 10, 2017

Every week we give you the Power Rankings to all of our favorite (and not so favorite) characters in Westeros as they play the Game of Thrones.

1. Danaerys Targaryen: Just when we thought Daenerys was a character on the decline, the Mother of Dragons defied expectations by going back to her roots: giant, motherfucking, fire-breathing dragons. Reinforcing the expression, “If you want something done, do it yourself.”, House Targaryen delivered a crippling defeat over House Lannister and oath breaker Randyll Tarly with a comeback win for the ages.

2. Jon Snow: While the audience knows the truth and significance of Jon Snow’s roots, the Bastard of Winterfell and newly appointed King of The North does not realize his own value. This could provide an interesting shift in the power dynamic during contract negotiations between him and Khaleesi if he is to learn his true biological mother and father. Regardless, Jon is holding firm and strong at numero dos.

3. Arya Stark: Just when we thought Arya was out of surprises, the youngest daughter of Ned Stark shocked us again with a showstopping performance in a sparring session with Brienne of Tarth. Expect Arya to play the long game in her attempt to kill Queen Cersei.

4. Sansa Stark: The Lady of Winterfell fell one spot from #3 to #4 with Arya’s arrival and Sansa’s inability to deal with her younger siblings improvement in performance.

5. Tyrion Lannister: Pound for pound the strongest character in our power rankings, Tyrion is proving to us all that he is willing to put the good of the realm over his own family’s name.

6. Lord Varys: The Master of Whispers is holding strong in our Top 10 as a resourceful and cunning individual whom despite his common background is proving to be a real player in the game of thrones.

7. Cersei Lannister: Cersei had a big jump in the rankings in Week 3 due to her intricate plan to thwart and destroy both House Tyrell and Martell. Her ability to buy the favor of the Iron Bank had her on the way to a Top 3 finish in Week 4 until her loss on the battleground to a giant, motherfucking, fire-breathing dragon dropped her to #7.

8. Jaime Lannister: Continues to fall in our rankings due to his blind love and faith in his twin sister Cersei. Also he might have drowned. But we doubt it.

9. Bran Stark: This dude continues to get weirder and weirder with interactions that make you wonder if Brandon Stark is as the internet claims: the Jaden Smith of Westeros.

10. Noah Syndergaard: Dark horse pick to ascend The Iron Throne.

-Dropped out of Top 10:
Littlefinger: Despite being responsible for saving Jon Snow at the Battle of The Bastards with the arrival of his Knights of The Vale, it’s just becoming clearer every day that no one in the House Stark trusts Peter Baelish. Bran quoting a line back to Littlefinger that he said in private to Lord Varys from season three should be the nail in the coffin that will eventually drop Lord Baelish out of our top 10 for good.

Honorable Mention
Euron Greyjoy: Shops at Rag & Bone.

Samwell Tarly: I went back and watched the scene of him curing Jorah Mormont’s greyscale on mute, played How To Save A Life by The Fray and cried for days.

Next to Die
Grey Worm or Dickon Tarly
