Game of Thrones is one of the most buzzed about series on television. Filled with barbaric battles, epic betrayals, palace intrigue and romance it has all the drama a soap fan could ask for. Here's a crash course comparison of our favorite daytime soap characters and their Westeros equivalents.
Love to Hate: King Joffrey Baratheon, Game of Thrones / Nick Fallon, Days of Our Lives
Game of Thrones fans cheered Joffrey Baratheon's death, because of his countless evil deeds, and in no small part, Jack Gleeson's fantastic portrayal of the sadistic character. Though he isn't dead—not for a lack of trying on the parts of some Salem residents—the same can be said for Days of Our Lives' Nick Fallon.
Blake Berris has masterfully developed the Horton legacy character into a multifaceted villain. While I sincerely hope Nick isn't poisoned, like Joffrey, I emphatically want him to pay, and pay dearly.
Mother of Dragons: Daenerys 'Khaleesi' Targaryen, Game of Thrones / Sami Brady, Days of Our Lives
Daenerys 'Khaleesi' Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is the Mother of Dragons on Game of Thrones. She would do anything to protect her dragons and the people she's freed from slavery as her army grows. Days of Our Lives' Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) may not have dragons hatching from eggs, but she can be one mother of a monster when those she loves are threatened.
In Sunday's "Oathkeeper" episode of GoT, Khaleesi delivered one of the best quotes in four seasons. When advised, "Sometimes, it is better to answer injustice with mercy," her firm reply was, "I will answer injustice with justice."
Sami Brady may not have an army of Unsullied, but when she feels injustice has been served, there is no one more dangerous to have on your side.
