  • I_Sell_Books

    I can't choose between Tyrion, Tami Taylor, and John Watson. Sorry.

  • Ben Wyatt. If by 'behind your throne' you mean...well, you know what, I think you can imagine what I mean.

  • The Kitastrophe

    Tami Taylor. behind the throne, under the throne, over the arm of the throne, and so on. Oh, and for the power thing too, i suppose.

  • Pshh

    Wow I can see why you're paid for being a writer. Some spectacular writing there. You have a real way with words.

  • Swiss Fox

    Tami Taylor. I would say more if there was more to say.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Pinkman all the way, Pinkman always, Pinkman in all the ways.
    Except when it's Tyrion.
    Then both.

  • atoz15

    tami and benji, baby!!!!!!

  • John G.

    Half Man, Half Man, Half Man!

  • MissAmynae

    Tyrion and John as a double-team, er, tag-team.

    Can Cumberbatch BE my throne? because I would highly enjoy sitting on that for hours every day....

  • sean

    Ava and Tyrion. I think they would be a wonderful couple. She could slap around some of his ho's. Before things get out of hand.

  • googergieger

    But it's John Watson. Not Joan. Why would it be Joan. Oh she's a girl? Instead of a guy? So they kept Watson and changed John to Joan? That's clever. I'm going to start watching that show now. It sounds really clever.

  • Iron

    On a purely objective base I think Tyrion is the most qualified in a purely Machiavellian sense... That being said I think I go with Jesse for having the right mix of potential and ambition and qualifications to take over my small new england pot dealership.

  • John W

    I gotta go with Tyrion Lannister. After a hard days work he knows all the best places to go party.

    If not him then Ben Wyatt because we can play D&D together. Plus I get to stare at Leslie inconspicuously.

  • emilya

    tami taylor forever! sometimes when i'm having a really shitty day i like to imagine what t tami taylor (said in the buddy garrity voice of course) would tell me and it makes me feel better. i worship at the alter of tami taylor. That said, ava crowder with the frying pan is a close second.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Tyrion. Like there is even another choice. If one is to take the question seriously, Tyrion is the only choice.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Wrong question. You should ask who we'd use as a figurehead on the throne.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I'd choose Claire Underwood's hairdresser as my power, thank you very much.

  • mats19

    her hair is perfection this entire series...

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I have a similar cut to that right now myself...but it doesn't look quite that sleek/sexy. Of course, I'm not HER, but I might just have to take a picture to my hairdresser....

  • Milly

    Ben Wyatt is irritating. Completely insufferable and in the outtakes/bloopers Adam Scott appears to be even more unlikeable.

    I'd let Robert Arryn see him fly through the moon door.

  • atoz15

    adam scott seems (IS) like one of the most genuine and hilarious ppl in the industry....he's consistently in awe that he gets to be a part of things like parks, etc (in interviews, convos, etc)

  • I... what? Are we watching the same Parks & Rec?

  • toblerone

    Tyrion, Olsen then John Watson.

    For House of Cards shouldn't it Doug Stamper?

    If your poison is running a drug enterprise then Stringer Bell would be my first choice. then Spiros Vondopoulos.

  • janeite1900

    Tyrion, because those are brave men knocking on our door and we should go kill them!

  • Tyrion all the way. He's a sarcastic, vicious motherf*cker and he knows where the good ho's at. Although Watson's good with a gun and would round things out pretty nicely. Of course, that leaves me the only one without a British accent...oh well, I can fake one.

  • poopnado

    Benji Wyatt.

  • Tyrion for the power. Ben for the SMex cuz ZOMG he is hot

  • BWeaves

    It's House of Cards, not House of Lies.

    Anyway, Tyrion Lannister. He's smart, and sexy, and I want his leather jerkin.

    Watson, is honest, but not smart enough to be the power behind the throne.

  • DirtyMind

    Are you sure you don't want to jerkin his leather?

  • JP

    I would like the power to flush. Thank you, I'll be here all week. Try the veal.

  • apsutter

    Tyrion, no doubt. That is a (tiny)man who will always have your back while cracking some jokes.

  • Mrcreosote

    #1 choice. Tyrion
    #2 choice...Who cares? It's not Tyrion.

  • Upstate

    Tyrion.........................Watson then Wyatt.

  • Natallica

    I scrolled down only to look for him

  • AshBookworm

    Tyrion, without a doubt. Been a while since I read the books but he managed to keep Joffrey on the throne, didn't he?

  • apsutter

    Exactly, he disliked his shitty family and still did the noble thing and supported their dumb asses.

  • AshBookworm

    Yes, he is loyal. And their horrid treatment of him breaks my heart. But I actually meant that if he can keep someone as heinous as that shitty little terror on the throne then he's damn good at his job, isn't he?

  • apsutter

    Of course!! He played the game better than his sibs and everyone underestimates the dwarf!

  • Pants-are-a-must

    John Watson. Stone cold killer.

  • Ted Zancha

    Jesse Pinkman. I'm already a teacher, so I'm half way there.

    But mostly because I'm in need of a hype man.

    I feel like I could use someone shouting "Yeah Bitch!" any time I correct a student or call them out on being ignorant. It would make my job a lot more fun.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Oh man. Tami's hair and Tyrion wit.

  • winged chorus

    And Pinkman's catchphrase.

  • Tinkerville

    Tyrion, motherfuckers! Halfman! Halfman!

  • linnyloo

    John and Tyrion, please. ...Apparently I like my right hand men blond, short, and fierce.

  • foolsage

    That's exactly my pick, too. Freeman's Watson and Dinklage's Tyrion are a perfect match... they're both terribly practical, efficient, clever people who'd prefer to live in a nicer world but are quite well suited to get by in this one. Neither one of them gets the respect they deserve from those around them, and both can kick ass when called on to do so.

  • John Watson. For many toward and untoward reasons.

  • TheOtherGreg

    Joan Watson. For many toward and untoward reasons.

  • e jerry powell

    Tyrion. For mostly untoward reasons.

  • PDamian

    Tyrion. For all the reasons.

  • googergieger

    And then there's Maude.

  • Green Lantern

    Right on, Maude!
