On this week’s episode of Marvelous Geeks, I sit down with one of my nerdiest friends/coworker to talk all things Game of Thrones before the final season aires. We get into our favorite characters, moments, quotes, and predictions. Listen to find out who we think will sit on the Iron Throne, who we want, who we absolutely don’t, and the characters we need to survive most.

Jon Snow (Game of Thrones)
He knows things. He actually knows a lot. Jon Snow — the one Game of Thrones character I’m almost positive the entire world can agree on. He’s one of the good ones, the pure ones. The character you don’t expect to love so fervently when the series begins, but once his storylines begin to progress, Jon serves as the symbol of hope who’s consistently rooted for. Behind the kind, ruminating eyes is a man who’s seen too much not to care — in a world where the Iron Throne is all that matters, for Jon Snow, it’s the people, it’s honor, it’s dignity, it’s love. There aren’t many people in George R. R. Martin’s world that’d be steadfast to their word the way Jon Snow is. The innate kindness, sincerity, and astounding bravery not only make him worthy of a King’s title, but he stands as inspiration of the fact that a light in darkness and goodness amongst cruelty can be the most unexpected form of strength.
