After each season of Game of Thrones, I try and take stock of the 7 major Houses and where they fall within the power structure of Westeros. After Season 5’s depressing finale, it certainly doesn’t feel like there’s much hope for nearly any House. But before the new season begins, let’s take a closer look at where “Mother’s Mercy” left things regarding the game of thrones itself, ranking from the least to the most powerful (and then let us know how you would rank the Houses in the comments). And of course, thar be spoilers; since this deals with all of the events of Season 5, if you are not caught up, get thee to a DV-R! Valar morghulis.
