Let\'s face it--we all watch "Game of Thrones." We\'re a peculiar bunch. If someone asks us about the show, we tell them about all the death, murder, and backstabbing and then rave about how awesome it is--which makes us look like masochists. Whatever; people who don\'t watch it have no idea how real the struggle is.
Hating someone in the show and then liking them
Seriously, you feel a little dirty inside, don\'t you? How many of us would think to ourselves after season 2, "I feel kind of bad for Jaime Lannister; he\'s not so bad now." Hah! Wait a minute, I mean... he did do all that nice stuff for Brienne, and his love for his brother can\'t be forgotten, but he still killed the Starks and had a weird relationship with his sister. We\'re so conflicted!
YES. You all know the struggle. You know, the one where you\'re so hungry you decide to grab the chips and the bag makes too much noise or the sound of yourself chewing drowns out the dialogue. It\'s a shame that you were so excited for the episode you forgot to eat beforehand.
The shock you feel when a character you like dies
Yep, you knew after the first season that no one was safe. The show is a cruel mistress who isn\'t afraid to pull out the chair from under you. We hate it. It makes us sick, but we keep hoping for the best. But this is "Game of Thrones," so there really is no hoping.
Trying to make Khal Drogo or Daenerys\' love your thing
Let\'s face it, some of the dialogue in "Game of Thrones" is awesome. Like, dang. Wish I thought of that. Anyway, we\'re pretty sure more than one couple has used Drogo\'s line "You are the moon of my life" and Daenerys\' "sun and stars" line. Just make sure you don\'t do it in public, or you just might become THAT couple.
Struggling to accept that Cersei is a necessity for the show now
Ever since Joffrey died, we\'ve all come to the realization that we can\'t have Cersei die. That would just be exactly what we\'d all want, and we can\'t have that--this isn\'t "Glee"; it\'s "Game of Thrones." Cersei is evil, and it\'s exactly what the show needs to make us feel downright horrible. So addictive!
Seriously, this guy has stuck with us for 5 seasons now, and he was only in like two episodes! His charm, charisma, and selflessness were hugely admired among a world full of thieves and murderers. We\'re still holding out hope (ha!) that Syrio Forel, First Sword of Braavos, comes back to set things right in the land of Westeros.
Maybe it\'s the way he looks, or what he did, or something else we can\'t explain, but Theon is pretty much down there at the bottom of the list right above Joffrey. We want to feel bad for you, Theon; we really do. But then we remember what you did, and we somehow justify your suffering. Golly, we\'re horrible people.
The frustration when your friends won\'t shut up during the show
We\'ve all probably experienced it. It\'s Sunday night, everyone\'s excited, drinks are had, the show comes on, and... they won\'t shut up. They want to talk during the show, and you\'re sitting there grinding your teeth, wanting to shoot them with a crossbow, Joffrey-style.
Seriously. Anytime they\'re on the screen, they steal the show. We want MOAR! We want to see them fly, burn things, and mess things up--Targaryen style.
Sometimes, when you\'re having a bad day, you can look up an endless video loop of Tyrion slapping Joffrey and feel way better about yourself.
