Warning: Spoiler alerts if you are not up to date with the most recent “Game of Thrones” episode.
Only a few “Game of Thrones” characters from the first season managed to stay alive long enough to see the seventh.
The surviving characters on “Game of Thrones” have been through a lot, and have gone through quite a lot of changes since the series began.
If one thing is certain, it’s that no one on “Game of Thrones” has remained the same.
They have traveled far and wide and been through so many battle and adventures that at times it’s hard to remember where they began. We decided to compare what life was like for these characters when their stories first began and what life is like for them now.
Here’s what the main characters of “Game of Thrones” were like in season one, and here’s what they’re like now as season seven comes to a close:
Ser Jorah Mormont – season one
Ser Jorah was originally hired by Daenerys Targaryen’s brother, Viserys, to help him and Daenerys understand the ways of the Dothraki. After Viserys is killed by Khal Drogo, Ser Jorah ends up becoming Daenerys’ sole counsel.
Even though it was not revealed until later on in the series, Ser Jorah was spying on Daenerys throughout all of season one for King Robert Baratheon, so that his exile from Westeros would be lifted.
Ser Jorah Mormont – season seven
Ser Jorah was afflicted with and then cured of greyscale, and has now returned to Daenerys’ side once more.
After it was revealed that he had been spying on Daenery’s, Ser Jorah has since pledged to do whatever he can to help the Mother of Dragons with her quest to rule Westeros.
Ser Jorah most recently went beyond The Wall to retrieve a wight with Jon Snow, and the Brotherhood Without Banners for Daenerys. There’s no telling what he’ll do for her next.
Samwell Tarly – season one
Samwell, forced to either take the black or be executed by his own father, made his way to Castle Black where he befriends Jon Snow.
Samwell is terrible at fighting, and remains the brunt of most jokes throughout the majority of the first season.
Samwell Tarly – season seven
Samwell, now accompanied by Gilly and her son, the Wildlings he rescues from Craster’s Keep in season two, finally finds himself surrounded by his one true love at the Citadel – books.
Samwell studies to be a maester until he decides he’s fed up with his tedious tasks at the Citadel. Samwell is now on the road with Gilly, and his destination is unknown.
Sandor “The Hound” Clegane – season one
The Hound was Prince Joffrey’s body guard, and followed him around to keep him safe, despite having the young prince taunt his facial scars.
Sandor “The Hound” Clegane – season seven
The Hound’s days of serving anyone are long gone. Now The Hound has more altruistic goals in mind, such as assisting the Brotherhood Without Banners on their mission to fight the White Walkers beyond The Wall.
Varys – season one
The secretive eunuch sat on the Small Council in King’s Landing advising King Robert Baratheon athe beginning of season 1.
Varys claimed to know everything thanks to his “little birds,” which in later seasons were revealed to be young children from around King’s Landing acting as his spies.
Varys – season seven
Varys has left King’s Landing and any allegiance he ever had to the Lannister’s behind.
Instead, Varys has pledged to help Daenerys claim her seat on the Iron Throne.
Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish – season one
The power hungry brothel owner worked on the Small Counsel in King’s Landing in season one, assisting King Robert and seeking new ways to find power.
It is revealed many seasons later that Littlefinger, with the help of Lysa Arryn, helped to catalyze the War of Five Kings.
Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish – season seven
The current Lord of the Vale now resides in Winterfell, offering his advice to the Lady of Winterfell, Sansa Stark.
While Littlefinger’s motives are unclear and questionable, it’s safe to assume that Littlefinger is still on his ongoing quest to gain power.
Theon Greyjoy – season one
Originally from Pyke, Theon became one of the Stark’s wards after Balon Greyjoy surrendered to Ned Stark, following the Greyjoy Rebellion.
Theon is treated as if he were one of the Stark’s sons and led a privileged life, filled with comfort, booze, and Ros the prostitute.
Theon Greyjoy – season seven
He’s been castrated, tortured, and emotionally abused throughout the past couple of seasons. But Theon finally regained his freedom and joined his sister Yara to fight on behalf of Daenerys.
Yara and Theon set sail for Dorne to bring Dornish soldiers to fight in Westeros when their uncle Euron Greyjoy ambushes their ships. Euron captures Yara, but an emotionally scarred Theon hops off of their ship, instead of trying to save her.
Theon is rescued by fellow Pyke soldiers, but his fate as well as his sister’s is still fairly uncertain.
Bran Stark – season one
For one brief moment in time Bran had the ability to walk and climb. Bran’s love for climbing ended up resulting in his paralysis when he stumbled upon Cersei and Jaime Lannister having sex while climbing a tower.
Seeking to keep the incestuous relationship a secret, Jaime pushed Bran off of the tower, nearly killing him. Bran survived the fall, but his body was paralyzed. Bran remained bed ridden for a big chunk of the first season, having prophetic dreams about three-eyed ravens.
Bran Stark – season seven
Now the new self-proclaimed Three-Eyed-Raven, Bran has returned to Winterfell after being gone for many years – and he’s nothing like who he was when he left seasons ago.
Bran now has the power to see everything that’s every happened in the history of the “Game of Thrones” universe, along with the ability to time travel and inhabit and control other people’s bodies – but he’s terrible conversation.
Arya Stark – season one
Just at the beginning of her training, young Arya rejects traditional feminine activities like embroidery, and instead puts all of her energy in developing her sword fighting skills. Jon Snow gives her her first sword “needle.”
Arya trains in King’s Landing with expert Bravo swordsman Syrio Forel. Sadly, Arya gets separated from her family when her father is arrested for treason, and she flees the castle at King’s Landing.
Arya Stark – season 7
Now trained in the art of many faces, Arya is back at Winterfell and has become cold and distant, with nothing but revenge and her kill list on her min, much to the dismay of her sister Sansa.
With a ton of deaths behind her at this point, it’s hard to know whether or not Arya poses a threat to Sansa, especially now that new information about Sansa’s past with the Lannisters has been unearthed.
Sansa Stark – season one
All Sansa wanted was to be the Queen of King’s Landing – at least, that was before she really got to know the current Queen in King’s Landing.
Sansa had hopes of becoming betrothed to Prince Joffrey, who quickly becomes King. But when things sour during her time living in King’s Landing following her father Ned Stark’s beheading for treason, Sansa realizes Winterfell isn’t so bad after all.
Sansa Stark – season seven
After eradicating Ramsay Bolton, who had taken over Winterfell last season during the Battle of the Bastards, Sansa has resumed her role as the lady of Winterfell once again.
While Jon Snow has been named King in the North, Sansa has been put in charge while he’s away to meet with Daenerys Targaryen and traveling beyond The Wall.
Sansa it seems is taking quite nicely to a position of power, though her sister Arya is suspicious of her true motives.
Jaime Lannister – season one
In season one, Jaime had both of his hands, the attitude of a self-entitled bro, and a 90s boy band haircut – he had it all.
The Kingslayer pushed Bran out of a tower in Winterfell after he catches him and Cersei having sex. Jaime spends most of the season trying to protect his secret relationship with Cersei, at any cost necessary.
Jaime Lannister – season seven
With one less hand than he started with, Jaime continues to aide Cersei on her quest to stay in control of Westeros.
But it seems that Jaime’s allegiance to Cersei is beginning to wear thin, as she continues to become more and more destructive, unwilling to see that she’s on the losing side of the war for the Iron Throne.
Tyrion Lannister – season one
Tyrion could often be found getting wasted in season one and stumbling into trouble.
Catelyn Stark captures Tyrion and accuses him of pushing Bran from the tower, but Tyrion is released after having a sellsword win a trial by combat for him.
Tyrion also ends up fighting in the Battle of Green Fork, although fighting doesn’t really describe what he did. Tyrion is knocked out within seconds of the battle starting, and wakes up just as the battle ends.
Despite having a real resistance to getting caught up in the Lannister’s political intrigue, Tyrion finds he has natural knack for politics and war strategy – just not physical combat.
Tyrion Lannister – season seven
Tyrion has left his heavy drinking days behind him, along with his allegiance to his family, House Lannister.
After killing his father and escaping King’s Landing, Tyrion now acts as Daenery’s Hand of the Queen. A purveyor of peaceful tactics over violence, Tyrion has become a key figure in helping Daenerys strategize how to win the war against his sister, the current Queen of Westeros.
Cersei Lannister – season one
Cersei was the resentful wife of King Robert in season one, and in the midst of a secretive ongoing affair with her twin brother Jaime (and father of her three children).
Ned Stark, King Robert’s Hand of the King, confronted Cersei about her incestuous relationship and contested Joffrey’s claim to the Iron Throne, which ultimately led to his beheading (which we’re sure was at Cersei’s request).
Cersei – season seven
After every last one of her children meets an unfortunate death, Cersei finally finds herself sitting on the Iron Throne this season, calculating how to keep her newfound power over Westeros.
Cersei, now comfortable in asserting her power, fearlessly flaunts her relationship with Jaime, and is expecting another child with her long time brother lover.
Jon Snow – season one
Jon Snow, the (presumed) bastard of Ned Stark, traveled to The Wall to help his uncle Benjen Stark on the Night’s Watch.
It’s here where Jon continues to strengthen his fighting abilities, and learns more about the dangers beyond The Wall and what it truly means to take the black and swear your life to the Night’s Watch.
Jon Snow – season seven
From the bastard of Winterfell to the new King in the North, Jon has made huge strides over the past seven seasons. He’s fallen in love, rallied armies, killed, and brought back to life.
Jon is now on a mission to save the people of Westeros from the impending war with the White Walker and wight army, and is looking for anyone willing to assist him.
Daenerys Targaryen – season one
Daenerys didn’t have her three dragons until the last few minutes of season one.
Before she became the Mother of Dragons and set sail for Westeros, she was sold by her brother Viserys to Khal Drogo, king of the Dothraki, as part of his plan to reconquer Westeros. But Daenerys grew accustomed to life as a Dothraki, and was eventually hailed as the Khaleesi.
Unfortunately, Daenerys lost her Khal and gave birth to a child who died upon being born.
Daenerys Targaryen – season seven
Daenerys is currently stationed in Dragonstone (where she was born many years ago) plotting her takeover of Westeros.
Daenerys is now assisted by Tyrion and Varys, who were both once loyal to the Lannisters.
Daenerys has only two fully grown dragons now. Her third dragon, Viserion, was killed by the Night King when Daenerys went North to save Jon Snow from White Walkers – her other new ally, and likely love interest.
