Rebirth, resurrection, metamorphosis, here assembled are characters who undergo transformative experiences, generally involving some period of death, or at least dormancy (at least one cocoon).
While we ourselves undergo a time of great change and transformation, here is our Top 10 list of characters who have been reborn.
I’ve never reviewed Game of Thrones before. Shocker, I love it, the whole point of being geeky is to embrace the things we love with a passion and not to get too bogged down in the things we hate (unless what we hate is paying us enough). Before you ask, no I have not read the books, but I have learned enough over the years to be able to discuss some of the differences, or at least I could have done until now…
As of this sixth season we are almost completely off the books, having gone through the source material, and while A Song of Ice and Fire has been rather heavily changed, the story and characters remain very close to the originals. George R. R. Martin has been closely involved with the production and his creation has not strayed far from his control, so it’s not entirely fair to criticise the HBO show on the basis of straying so far from the series, and numbers don’t lie. It’s been a monolith in the ratings, almost always the most heavily pirated TV series, and some claim that to even be to the show’s benefit.
This is set to be the last “full” season, being ten episodes where the next two seasons will amount to thirteen episodes between them, so let us review the years events.
