Happy Father’s Day!
What better way to celebrate dads everywhere than to rate the ones on Game Of Thrones? Exactly.
We’ve given a handful of dads from GOT a rating out of 5 👔. Would you agree with the following?
1) Stannis Baratheon — 👔👔👔👔
We’re giving Stannis 4 because the poor guy is doing the best he can. Between having a shadow assassin for a spawn, being manipulated by the Red Witch and being cheated out of the throne, he’s still a pretty good dad to Shireen — minus the part of her being locked in a tower. He still makes time to visit with her and spend some quality father-daughter time. He also looks genuinely happy with Shireen, which makes for major bonus points. Happy Father’s Day, Stannis!
2) Robert Baratheon — N/A
Ok. So stuff got a little weird amongst some of the Lannister siblings, so technically, Robert isn’t really a dad. We know he has “bastard” sons and daughters… but does he know? No kids (or kids you have no idea about) means you ain’t no dad. Sorry Robert!
3) Balon Greyjoy — 👔👔👔
Balon Greyjoy definitely isn’t in our good books, but we do give him credit for speaking so highly of his oldest sons (rest in peace) and keeping his family name alive. It’s just a shame he’s dropped the ball with Theon.
4) Craster — 👔
Craster is by far the worst father on the show. We even feel like giving him 1 👔 is a lot. He has daughters so he can more daughters with them. Ew.
5) Jamie Lannister — 👔👔👔
Jamie made it pretty weird when he had kids with his sister. We know that. But, we have to admit he’s not half bad when taking care of the kids and making sure they have a good male figure in their lives. If he wasn’t their uncle as well, we might even bump it up to 4 👔. Happy Father’s Day, Jamie!
6) Nedd Stark — 👔👔👔👔👔
It’s Nedd Stark! Of course he gets 5! #rip
7) Tywin Lannister — 👔👔👔
The guy is an ass. We’re pretty pissed he wants to kill Tyrion, but to the rest of the kids and grandkids, he’s actually kind of a stand up guy — most days. We give him 3 👔 because he knows what it means to take care of a family, keep a family name living and every so often he shares a little bit of wisdom.
8) Walder Frey — 👔👔
He did kill the Starks, but we won’t hold it against him for this purpose. However, the guy is creepy. He has dozens of kids, maybe more. It’s just weird and we aren’t big fans of him. Sorry Frey.
9) Roose Bolton — 👔👔👔👔
The guy might not be one of the good guys, but he did make a huge gesture to his bastard son, Ramsay, by changing his last name from Snow to Bolton. He might have had to prove his worth, but dad definitely rewarded him in the best way possible. Happy Father’s Day, Roose!
Honorable Mention — Robb Stark
Poor Robb! We think he would have followed in his father’s footsteps and made a great king and dad. He definitely gets an “A” for effort!
