Excuse me, I have an important observation. (obligatory warning that this post will discuss season 7 related points)
Judging by the title card, there are four core houses of this show. Remember:
- Dragons = Targaryens
- Lions = Lannisters
- Wolves = Starks
- Stags = Baratheons
We’ve seen plenty of direwolves, starting with the very first episode.
And dragons as well.
We’ve had stags too, although notably only dead ones.
So, I think you can see where I am going with this.
When am I gonna get to see an ACTUAL LION on this show? Or is Ser Pounce the closest we’re going to get? Are there lions in Westeros at all? Have they gone extinct? Given all the interest in the House Animals, it is EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING that so little attention has been given to the lion, and probably why House Lannister is close to dying out now.
You gave me a zombie polar bear, and it was one of the greatest days of my life. I think it’s only fair to follow up with some actual lions now.
