As lots of you’re keenly conscious, Sport of Thrones will not be returning to your tv till this summer time. When this summer time? We nonetheless don’t know, however the information isn’t all unhealthy. There have been rumblings of a possible GoT prequel sequence within the works. Nothing has been confirmed, in fact, nevertheless it definitely would make sense for HBO to do.
In spite of everything, it is fairly straightforward to justify. Followers are clearly determined for extra GoT, however they’ll get solely about 13 extra episodes till the top of the present. And though this explicit sequence will finish, it is not as in the event that they’re missing for supply materials for extra. A Track of Ice and Hearth is over four,200 pages lengthy…thus far. By the point George R.R. Martin is finished, that quantity might be near 6,000 pages. Let’s be actual: If Peter Jackson can squeeze 9 hours of Hobbit motion pictures out of a brief story and a few scraps from The Return of the King, HBO can sift again via all of the stuff they omitted through the preliminary GoT run.
With that in thoughts, listed here are a number of the tales I feel they might (and will!) inform. PS: All of those prequels ought to simply be named after the primary characters. It is the one means I am going to study to cease calling Brienne “the tall and nice-soldier woman.”
In response to the books, Cersei’s father mainly traded her to King Robert Baratheon in alternate for political energy. Thanks, Dad! Certain, on this prequel we’ll see her evolve into the political energy participant she turns into—and that might be thrilling to look at—however, truthfully, I am simply ready for her to make out with Jaime for the primary time. They’re like Ross and Rachel if Ross and Rachel had been really Ross and Monica.
That is one other prequel that might be very darkish contemplating Daenerys spent most of her youth making an attempt to keep away from her brother’s mood tantrums. (Oh, and the truth that in season one we noticed her brother commerce her to Khal Drogo in alternate for 40,000 males.) Facet word: Put Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston facet by facet and inform me their son would not seem like Viserys Targaryen.
She’s estimated to be round 200 to 300 years previous, so the prequel prospects are just about countless. For starters, we all know she was a slave in Essos and crossed the Slender Sea to get to Stannis Baratheon’s house on the island of Dragonstone. That’s attention-grabbing and all the pieces, however actually all we wish to know is the place did she get the magic necklace?!
Clearly, a Melisandre prequel has actual potential. Plus, it offers HBO the prospect to exchange all that completely gratuitous True Blood nudity that is not on the air.
He definitely has a darkish previous, however I might prefer to see this go in a lighter route. He is successful story! Not many individuals have traveled the world with an appearing troupe, had their genitals thrown right into a campfire by a sorcerer, after which turned it throughout to start out a profitable pickpocketing enterprise. That is a feel-good story folks wish to hear today, proper?
Do these all must be scripted reveals? Tormund’s story actually looks like a Historical past Channel present the place he spends all of his time making ready for the tough winter. Does he shun fashionable know-how at each flip? In fact! Does he imagine the old style means is the solely means? You guess! Does he have sufficient meals and provides to make it till the thaw? There aren’t any ensures past the wall, you guys.
Hear me out on this one: Brienne grew up a loner. Each her dad and mom and all her siblings died whereas she was a toddler. She grew to become a talented fighter at a younger age, so it will be enjoyable if her prequel concerned her making an attempt out for the boys’ sword-fighting staff in highschool and kicking ass. There are loads of enjoyable feminine empowerment story angles to play with on this prequel. We’d like extra of that!
There may not be sufficient for a full sequence, however inform me Joffrey couldn’t carry his personal Chucky-adjacent horror franchise.
