‘Game Of Thrones’: 5 Villains With Big Plans In Season 7
One of the great things about Game of Thrones, particularly in the novels on which the show is based, is how blurred the lines get between the heroes and villains. Good characters do bad things and bad characters do good things. I’ve written before about how, as the show has evolved away from the books, it has heightened certain elements, making them more arch and a little less gray. Now, as season 7 production progresses in Europe, the story is more clear than ever on what is right and what is wrong. And boy has the show upped the ante on its villains as a result.
We only have two shortened seasons left of Game of Thrones, a fact so profoundly sad, it makes you want to curl up in your castle. Unfortunately, we can’t, as Westeros remains in deeper turmoil than ever before.
The Mad Queen Cersei Lannister has seized the Iron Throne in King’s Landing after blowing up all her enemies with wildfire. Ramsay Bolton may be dead and Jon Snow King in the North, but a slighted Littlefinger will do anything to seize more power. In the Iron Islands, the bloodthirsty new pirate king Euron Greyjoy is preparing for a new invasion. The red witch Melisandre is banished, a wild card in the struggle against the White Walkers, the personification of winter, and their leader the Night King.
