Given my triumphant return to TexAgs last week, I thought perhaps you find lords and ladies might be down for a Game of Game of Thrones Season 8 Contest.

Is Oberyn still the most violent/gruesome death on television?

Still tops for me, not only of GoT but of all television that I've seen.

Just because of the amount you see I think so. Rewatching everything and last night saw a death I forgot about...zombie mountain ripping the skull and spinal cord out of one of the sparrows.

For me, it's a combination of --
  • the amount you see (no pun intended)
  • your fondness for the character
  • the unexpected/surprise factor
  • Ellaria's reaction
  • the repercussions of his death.

What about Wun Wun ripping a guy in half with guts falling out everywhere?

For the reasons above, doesn't move the needle for me.

Sorry, I was focusing on most violent/gruesome. I think your criteria switches it to "most impactful".

I mean, even strictly looking at gore, it doesn't really compare to Oberyn's, imo. It's not really the focus of the scene, it's a no-name character, and it happens in about a second.

Still cool as ****, though.

Most impactful is not quite the same. That would probably still go to several others ahead of Oberyn.

Understand your reasons....I guess when I look at 'most gruesome death' my connection with the character, its meaning to the story, etc mean very little. It's a death that makes me go 'ho lee chit' and cringe in my chair. Oberyn's death definitely did that for me because of how much you could see. My imagination going to work with zombie mountain ripping the dude's head off with the spinal cord is pretty ridiculous and would probably be tops if they showed it happen in the same way. I still agree with Oberyn though.

What about hardest death to watch? We just finished season 5 last night and Shireen's death to me was the hardest to watch. It was easily the scene I was most nervous about out of the whole series. I even asked if we could fast forward through it and my wife told me to stop being a p***y and just watch.

For an article that claims it is not a spoiler, it gives indirectly a pretty big story spoiler into the shape of the season by talking about the order in which some of these episodes occur. We can now determine more or less the flow of the season even if we do not know the big events.

I'd also add the impact on Tyrion. Between the first TBC and the prominence of his character, I don't think any non book reader expected him to be "found guilty". That whole deal was a huge "holy **** - I can't believe that" moment.

The photos of Varys with Jorah, to me, indicate there will be some conflict between those two and Jon/Dany.

Which probably is obvious

Ok, here's the contest I mentioned earlier. Multiple choice questions are worth 10 points if you get them right. For all the characters, you're picking dead or alive. Each one you get right is worht 1 point. If you want, you can just send me your list of deads, should make it easier on me.

All picks are due March 17, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. CDT. That's 1 month before the show starts so hopefully spoilers will be minimal. If you miss the cutoff, too bad. If you feel like there's something wrong with a question, or I missed someone on the death pool or I messed up your picks, please email me. That will make things a lot simpler than going through the thread over and over. I'll post a big spreadsheet after everyone turns in picks and post the link here. Then update it every Monday during the season.

This is a game I play each year with a few friends. Not claiming it's the greatest thing around. You can take or leave as you like. And if the guy who used to bug me on how I ran the Survivor Pick'em a few years ago is reading this, for the love of God leave me alone.

The email address for your picks is: 4thethrone@protonmail.com.

Exactly what I meant in my last point.

At that point, I was legitimately worried they might be killing off Tyrion.
