The ‘Game Of Thrones’ team has helpfully reminded us that, along with winter, Father’s Day is coming. Check out the video and tell us — who is the WORST father in Westeros?
The Game Of Thrones team is nothing if not self-aware and and not able to delight in the constant misery they inflict upon its viewership. Just in time for Father’s Day, the GoT team has created a video honoring a few of its worst fathers! Click to watch and tell us — who gets the prize for the worst father in Westeros?
‘Game Of Thrones’: Father’s Day Is Coming
The video opens with Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) telling Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), “You let that little girl disarm you?” referring to, of course, Arya Stark.
Following Robert, may he rest in peace, Roose Bolton gives Ramsay a piece of his mind (“I placed far too much trust in you”), Craster (Robert Pugh) brags about his 99 dead sons, and Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide) tells Theon (Alfie Allen), “I won’t have my son dressed as a whore.”

Then, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) takes it home, telling Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) that, “A one-handed man with no family needs all the help he can get,” and then sentencing Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) to death: “Tyrion Lannister, in the name of King Tommen of the House Baratheon, First Of His Name, you’re hereby sentenced to death.”
Notably absent from the bad dad video is of course, Walder Frey, who has, like, a billion daughters and sons named Walda and Walder Jr., respectively, and who orchestrated Robb Stark’s death.
So, HollywoodLifers, with nary a good father to be found in Westeros, who is the absolute worst? How will you be celebrating Father’s Day? Is there anyone in Westeros who deserves a handmade card with a sun wearing sunglasses drawn on the front? Let us know!
