The 5 Stages of Grief (GoT Style)
Dealing with the death of your favorite Game of Thrones character is a natural part of life, like learning how to walk or falling in love with Kit Harrington. It’s logical that there are many steps involved in the grieving process.
You rewind back a few minutes. Did that just?-Yes-But-Wait-No! It’s true, the character you loved has died by stabbing/White Walkers/Wildfire/[insert gruesome death] and you, helpless viewer, must journey on. Maybe it won’t happen if you rewind again.
You throw your popcorn bowl down. This is unacceptable! You yell at the tv, but it doesn’t respond.
You call HBO, George R.R. Martin, anyone to try to reverse this death, maybe Jon Snow style. It goes to voicemail, so you leave a very long message. You probably should have laid off the Dornish wine.
Pull out your best Jon Snow impression then sulk. You think about joining the night’s watch to get away from everything but remember they die a lot, too.
Ok, it’s just a fictional character, right? You wipe away your tears with resolve as you repeat this mantra. Besides, maybe you’ll find a new character to love; they are introduced all the time! They will probably die, too, but just forget about that for now.
