Westworld and Game of Thrones: Violent Delights

Warning: Major Westworld S1 Spoilers and Game of Thrones S6 Spoilers  In Westworld, which had its first season earlier this autumn, HBO gave its own hit show, Game of Thrones a run for its money. While there weren’t any dragons or otherworldly ice monsters to be found in Westworld’s endless desert expanses, there were still many of the same qualities in the show that have endeared fans to Game of Thrones for years– complex plot-lines, multi-faceted characters, and epic world-building.

There are several ways to cope with the long wait between the airing of seasons of your favorite show; some of us commit to re-watching Game of Thrones seasons one through six, other, more literary minded folks might take up the A Song of Ice and Fire series to fill the gap in their life left by the end of the latest season. A few of us are content to put on the show’s signature soundtrack and let us whisk us away to Westeros, at least for a few moments every day while we sit in traffic or do the dishes.

Game of Thrones Season Six is over, and it looks like Season Seven won’t be out until later than usual next year, but HBO is doing their best to make sure that fans don’t lose interest in the popular fantasy series. Comic-Con has come and gone, and with it came a Game of Thrones panel which has become a staple at the event.
