Game of Thrones: Refresh Yourself With Where Each Character Left Off

Game of Thrones: Refresh Yourself With Where Each Character Left Off

The world of Game of Thrones is rich and layered, but it’s also damned confusing. Unless you’re the guy from A Beautiful Mind, you probably have to do a little Googling now and then to keep things straight. And that’s okay. It’s also why we’re here to help.

Everyone knows Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is dead (for now), but can you remember where we left Brienne (Gwendoline Christie), Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen), or the Greyjoys? Probably not. So check out our guide to where every major Game of Thrones character is right now:

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke): The reopening of the fighting pits turned into deadly chaos after a Son of the Harpy attempted to take Dany’s life. Khaleesi was able to escape on Drogon’s back, but shortly afterward Dany was captured by a Dothraki khalasar.

Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane): Stannis’ decision to sacrifice his daughter Shireen was all for naught. His wife Selyse killed herself, Melisandre (Carice van Houten) fled to Castle Black, and before he could lay siege on Winterfell, the Boltons’ army advanced on the few men Stannis had left. Brienne discovered a defeated Stannis on the battlefield and after he confessed to killing Renly, she finished the king off.

Arya Stark (Maisie Williams): After finding her way to the Braavosi brothel where Meryn Trant was abusing young girls, Arya revealed her true face and killed the man who killed Syrio Forel. In order to pay her debt for taking a life which was not hers to take, Jaqen (Tom Wlaschiha) blinded Arya.

Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau): After his disappointing dalliance in Dorne, Jaime headed back to King’s Landing with Bronn (Jerome Flynn), his niece-daughter Myrcella, and her fiancé Trystane in tow. But while their ship was in route, Myrcella died from a poisoned kiss from Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma), who clearly has no plans to stop rebelling against Prince Doran.

Margaery (Natalie Dormer) and Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones): Olenna’s (Diana Rigg) attempt to force the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) to release Queen Margaery and Ser Loras’ failed. The siblings remain imprisoned for perjury and for being gay, respectively.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey): The Queen Regent broke down and confessed her sins to the High Sparrow (with the exception of sleeping with Jaime). But before she could go to trial, Cersei was forced to make a naked walk of shame from the Sept of the Baelor to the Red Keep.

Jon Snow: Upset with Jon’s Wildling sympathies, the Night’s Watch turned against the Lord Commander and killed him, with little orphan Olly delivering the final stab.

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage): While Daario (Michiel Huisman) and the grayscale-plagued Jorah (Iain Glen) went to rescue Daenerys, Tyrion was instructed to remain behind and keep order in Mereen with Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel), Varys (Conleth Hill), and Grey Worm (John Anderson).

Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright): Along with Jojen (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Meera (Ellie Kendrick), and Hodor (Kristian Nairn), Bran made it north of the Wall. But before they reached the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow), Jojen was killed by a group of wights. A Child of the Forest helped the survivors into a magic cave, where the Three-Eyed Raven began training Bran to use his powers.

Rickon Stark (Alex Parkinson): Bran instructed Osha (Natalie Tena) to bring Rickon to Last Hearth, the seat of the Stark loyalist House Umber. Bran’s direwolf, Shaggydog, accompanied the duo on the journey.

Samwell Tarly (John Bradley): After the death of Maester Aemon (Peter Vaughn), Sam, and Gilly (Hannah Murray)—who officially took their relationship to the next level—headed south to Oldtown. Sam hoped to become a maester and discover how to defeat the White Walkers.

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner): With the help of Theon (Alfie Allen), Sansa managed to escape Winterfell in the confusion of the Stannis and Bolton battle.

Brienne of Tarth: Brienne and Pod stood vigil all season, waiting for Sansa to light the candle in her window that signaled she needed help. However, when Sansa did need her, Brienne had gone to kill Stannis.

Littlefinger: Lord Baelish told Cersei that Sansa was alive and betrothed to Ramsay Bolton. He promised that the Knights of the Vale would fight for the Lannisters if he was named Warden of the North in Roose Bolton’s place. Littlefinger then gave Cersei the prostitute Olyvar, who was crucial to the Faith Militant’s case against Margaery and Loras. However, Littlefinger also got Lancel to reveal his affair with Cersei, which lead to her own arrest.

The Boltons: Roose (Michael Elhatton) announced he’s expecting a son with his new wife, Walda Frey, which doesn’t bode well for his bast-ard son Ramsay’s (Iwan Rheon) inheritance.

The Free Folk: In the middle of talks about a possible alliance with the Night’s Watch, the Night’s King led his army of White Walkers and wights against the Free Folk in Hardhome. The few thousand surviving wildlings sought refuge at Castle Black, where they were allowed south of the Wall.

The Greyjoys: Yara (Gemma Whelan) attempted to rescue Theon from Ramsay, but Theon insisted he was Reek and refused to go with her. Yara returned to the Iron Islands, claiming her brother—King Balon’s (Patrick Malahide) only son and heir—was dead.

The Cleganes: The Hound (Rory McCann) was critically wounded by Brienne and Arya left him for dead on the side of a road in Vale. His brother, The Mountain (Ian Whyte), was fatally poisoned by Oberyn’s venomous spear, but Qyburn (Anton Lesser) managed to keep him alive—or rather, undead. He became a member of the Kingsguard.

Game of Thrones returns Sunday, April 24 at 9pm on HBO.

    Thanks mate. 🙂

  2. SilverDragon says:

    Simply love GOT. I too hate that so many of the main chars are getting killed off but it is still very intriguing to watch the various plots unfold. I am still rooting for the Starks and the Imp (Tyrion)

    @scOrp – if possible is there any way to up/reup season 2: episodes 4 and 9 of GOT. I cant seem to find any working links for those two episodes. Other than those two I have the complete series now, or will have as soon as I get a new Rapidgator account this afternoon.

  3. parsleybrain says:

    Thanks, I’ll definitely ask if I want something. 🙂

  4. parsleybrain says:

    I haven’t watched the last 2 or 3 episodes yet … I guess you have to allow them the one or other lame episode right? 🙂
    at the moment I’m almost with no show up to date, so much stuff to do and so little time to watch tv.

  5. parsleybrain says:

    I meant for instance

  6. parsleybrain says:

    Ok I see, I can’t use links in my comment, than it gets stuck somewhere .-) QI (Quite Interesting) is a panel show, but it’s quite hilarious and whenever you need a good laugh you really should give it a try. You might even learn some things. 😉 Try QI XL M08 – Merriment on youtube for instant.

  7. parsleybrain says:

    Since you seem to like Starz TV-Shows, have you watched Outlander yet? Second season just startet. Really good show. I’m not really into Vampires and Superheros. I had watched Arrow first to third season, then stopped. Elementary is one of my favorits too. 🙂 Grantchester I’ve watched only first season yet.
    some other fav’s are: The Blacklist, The 100, The Man in the High Castle, The Bridge (US Version with Diane Kruger), Hannibal

    • scOrp says:

      I like Outlander a lot
      i guess you didnt notice i have been uploadingh season 2 in x265
      will post the 3rd episode in afew min now
      The Blacklist is one of my favourites too , though the last episode was disappointing , lame to be honest lol

  8. parsleybrain says:

    Because we are talking favorite stuff, have you ever watched QI with Stephen Fry? I know it’s a complete different game, but this really is one of my absolute favorites. You can watch almost every single episode on youtube now. last series even the XL version in HD.

    • scOrp says:

      o ok , well i have never really heard about em
      but will give them a go 🙂
      these days i have been following
      The Originals
      Grimm
      The Flash
      Elementary

      I am fond of Grantchester as well 🙂

  9. parsleybrain says:

    Thanks for the offer, scOrp, I’ve watched it. In the beginning I only watched it cuz I’m a Toby Stephens fan but than I liked the strong female characters. Again…such a girl, eh? I didn’t mind all the accents since my native tongue isn’t english. I’m actually starting now to distinguish between australian, american or british accents.

  10. parsleybrain says:

    So I guess, if a movie or TV show comes quite close to reality, which I believe is the case with House of Cards, than it’s easier for me to deal with all the bad stuff. Reality is harsh and evil and brutal. If I want a break from reality then I read a book, or watch movies or TV-shows which promise the opposite. When I watch a fantasy movie or TV-show then I want at least a glimpse of hope that all is not lost and evil.

    • scOrp says:

      quite right 🙂
      Try Black-sails , i was so averse to such a show in which you see almost 99% people with an accent , with muddy clothes, and short fuses;P
      But its gripping and i love it
      If you want it i can get them uploaded, but they wont be my rips , had to arrange those x265 rips from all over for a friend and ultimately started watching em from about a month back 😛
      I never upload anything not done by myself or my team though 😛

  11. parsleybrain says:

    Oh, I know what you mean, what a pair. But there were always enough other elements which kept the balance, which kept me interested and engaged. I was always fascinated by their relationship, at least until it ended. The finesse and complexity of the political tricks and tactics always reminded me of a chess game. Absolutely brilliant to watch how a specific move comes into play 5 episodes later.

  12. parsleybrain says:

    well, I actually started to watch the show back then when it started. I watched two or three episodes and I could not bear that evil always had the upper hand. Also, it was too brutal for my taste. And from what I know this didn’t change much…hahaha……What can you do, I’m just a girl…lol

    • scOrp says:

      yep , the regular death of all the honest characters in GOT has been disturbing for me as well and its since the beginning
      Can you believe i stopped watching house of cards in the middle of season 2 as it was way too negative and evil for me , just couldnt imagine whatever the Underwoods were involved in .
      But i guess you have to take thing with a bit of salt , and chilies and more chilies and spices and huge amount of mustard and …..

      but still they are the 2 best shows along with Blacksails now a days ;P

  13. Anirudh says:

    LOL scOrp! I’m guessing you worked harder for this than your usual rips.

    • scOrp says:

      haa haaa ,
      Well GOT is arguably the best show ever to come on TV.
      I like it , pity it airs only 10 episodes once a year 😉
      and @Parsley : you should watch it , believe me

      and @Dante no doubt you are totally right mate !!!

  14. Dante says:

    Seems like you are a big fan of this show.
    look forward to download episodes from this website.

    @parsleybrain – there are 3 things you should do before dying

    1. Watch Game of Thrones
    2. Don’t read, just watch Watch Game of Thrones
    3. Start watching Game of Thrones

  15. parsleybrain says:

    Holy Moly, scOrp! Have you bothered and wrote all this down? I guess I’m one of the few people who aren’t watching this show, so just trying to read all this is already exhausting….lol
