Game of Thrones’s New Power Couples, Ranked

the season of duos

Oh, dear Goddess, what a frightful state I am in. Having been a long (and I do mean a long) time reader of Game Of Thrones, I have been sitting smugly through red weddings and beheadings; through dragons on the run and white walkers walking. But now, I am scared. I am lost, and afraid, and suddenly just as confused as the rest of the world. And it is invigorating.

This season is about journeys: the journey to battle, the journey to Essos, the journey to retake the north. Everyone has a destination, and with the land of GoT larger than it has ever been, characters are finding some pretty strange bedfellows. So instead of a traditional recap, we are going to do a ranking of power couples—those duos who are now traversing the realm in pairs.

Every week, we are going to rank each pair to see who will win—and what crazy lengths they'll go to—for the game of thrones.
