The (Remaining) Men of GoT – Part 3

Here are the final eight men of Game of Thrones that have played/will play a prominent part of Season 8.

Part 1
Part 2

Davos Seaworth

Dubbed the “Onion Knight”, Ser Davos is both a landed knight and a smuggler (now reformed). For his past crimes Stannis Baratheon cut off four fingertips from his right hand. Davos keeps the bones from his fingertips in a pouch around his neck as a “lucky charm”.

Wise, honest and straighforward, he currently serves as trusted advisor to Jon Snow.

Grey Worm

Grey Worm is one of the Unsullied, warrior-eunuchs formerly of Astapor but who now serve Daenerys Targaryen after she freed them from their tyrannical Masters – after which the Unsulled chose Grey Worm to be their commander. He also serves as an advisor to Daenerys.

Love is in the air:  Grey Worm and Missandei are romantically entwined.

Bronn

Ser Bronn of the Blackwater is a skilled and dangerous mercenary. A sellsword. His allegiance is to the highest bidder. That said, he does have charm and wit but you’d definitely want him on your side in battle.

It’ll be interesting to see if his character “shifts” at all in the coming episodes. Or at least, which side he chooses in the final war – if he makes it that far.

Tormund Giantsbane

Tormund is one of the Free Folk who lived North beyond the Wall. Until the White Walkers moved in. Now he fights with Jon Snow against the army of the dead.

Reminding me of a Viking warrior, Tormund Giantsbane is a formidable fighter and natural leader. He also has the hots for Brienne of Tarth. I hear fans of the show are clamoring for them to become “an item” and I’m one of them. Here’s to Tormund and Brienne!!

Euron Greyjoy

Gosh, is there anything nice I can say about Euron Greyjoy? Uncle to Theon and his sister Yara, Euron’s an arrogant, crude, amoral murderer – having killed his own brother to gain command of the Salt Throne.

I still can’t believe Cersei actually had sex with him. I have faith, though, that Cersei will see Euron gets exactly what he deserves. After she’s done having him to do her dirty work that is…

Gendry Baratheon

Captured and traded several times during the series, Gendry Baratheon is the bastard son of Robert Baratheon. A handsome lad, he’s the last living person in House Baratheon’s bloodline.

Melisandre to Gendry:  “The bastard of Robert of the House Baratheon, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men. Why do you think the City Watch wanted you? There is power in a king’s blood.”

Beric Dondarrion

Lord Dondarrion is the leader of a guerilla resistance group, Brotherhood Without Borders.

Beric’s died and been brought back to life by Thoros of Myr six times – a sure sign he’s instrumental in the upcoming war against the dead.

As Thoros died at the end of Season 7, if Dondarrion dies again he will not be brought back. Or will he? We still haven’t seen Melisandre appear this Season…

Podrick (Pod) Payne

Podrick was Tyrion Lannister’s squire in King’s Landing and saved his life during the Battle of Blackwater.

Young and inexperienced but determined to become a knight, Pod has been a squire to Brienne of Tarth who’s serving as his teacher in the finer arts of swordsplay.

His ineptitude is misleading as he’s shown he can “bring it” when the occasion warrants action.
