When someone mentions the biggest villain in Game of Thrones, who do you think of?
Joffrey? Cersei? Euron? Ramsey?
Well, forget all those. They’re all wrong.
The real biggest villain isn’t really a villain at all, at least in the traditional sense. He’s just a simple man who likes his pies hot, and who may have accidentally caused the downfall of Westeros.
On Monday, Reddit user abdo0000 shared the following post on why Hot Pie should be “the most hated” Game of Thrones character:
You’ve got to admit it: they have a point. After Arya casually dispensed with the entire Frey family she surely would have managed to bring down Cersei, no matter how heavily guarded the Queen might be.
Stupid Hot Pie changed all that.
Look, here’s the exact moment he tells Arya about Jon being at Winterfell and inadvertently seals the entire fate of Westeros:
That simple remark may have accidentally triggered a series of events which indirectly led to the only barrier protecting the realm from White Walkers to come crashing down. It’s a perfect demonstration of the Butterfly Effect in action.
Think about what you’ve done, Hot Pie.
THINK ABOUT IT.
