So here we are, on the Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5. Till now a lot has happened. The dynamics of GoT has changed manifolds. Aren’t you afraid to make or root on any one character? To be honest, I am. Call it bad luck or coincidence, every person that I liked faced an untimely death. Be it Ned, Robb or Hodor. My little heart still aches from all the goodbyes that I have seen, these being the toughest.
Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5 Online
Game of Thrones Season, started in the year of 2011, seven years and seven seasons. Sounds quite promising right? It is. The series is the adaptation of the George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. David Benioff and D.B Weiss were two smart people who picked up the book and turned it into a sitcom. The fantasy drama is not entirely based on the novel but is also a projection of images of the creators as well. The show is based on the story of two continents namely, Westeros and Essos.
Psychology behind the show
There are seven kingdoms that are currently under the rule of Queen Cersei of the House Lannister. She is now being dubbed as the mad queen because of her latest stunt of blowing half of her city away so that she could get her hands on the Iron Throne. It was prophesied that she would become the queen, but on the way, she would lose all her kids. All three of them lying in their graves, a dead husband, a dead father, runaway brother and a twin brother who is actually the father of her kids (some messed up story). And now even estranged relationship with her twin. All of this will take a toll on the mental health.

In the recent episode and trailer, it seems as if, Cersei has lost all her touch with human emotions. She is in constant denial of her grieve. Not even shedding a single tear. The greed for the throne has thrown her to such depravity of emotions that even a psychopath seems lively in comparison. This is the talent of George R.R Martin. He has portrayed such antagonists that they seem so relatable and somehow always burrowing a soft spot in our hearts. He knows what will pinch us, tug us closer and make us curse. Martin has mastered the art of human psychology and applied it to medieval times with no bounds

The reason we like Game of Thrones so much because it pleases our Id which is a part of our ego. Now don’t form presumption of the colloquial ego that everyone talks about, here it is a key factor in the formation of our personality. Id is the animal within us which is always subdued or dominated to a great extent. It is expressed but through the norms of our society. Thus Game of Thrones gives our Id the freedom to run around in the fantasy world. It can see that whatever it desires is getting fulfilled even though only in fantasy.
What are the seven kingdoms?
- Kingdom of the North, ruled by House Stark of Winterfell (my personal favorite)
- Kingdom of the Mountain and the Vale, ruled by House Arryn of the Eyrie.
- Kingdom of the Isles and the Rivers, as you know being ruled by Harren Hoare of Harrenhal.
- Kingdom of the Rock, ruled by the famous and rich House Lannister of Casterly Rock. (ooo that’s mysterious)
- Kingdom of the Stormlands, ruled by House Durrandon of Storm’s End
- Kingdom of the Reach, that is being ruled by House Gardener of Highgarden.
- And of course the Principality of Dorne, being ruled by House Martell of Sunspear
