A Song of Fire and Ice

Jon Snow

To quote Beyonce: “Who Runs The World? Girls!!

This week’s Game of Thrones gave us the epic battle of Jon Snow against Ramsey Bolton (Snow): The Battle of the Bastards! The Thriller In The North!! So did it live up to the hype? This probably was one of the finest, well shot, well edited, tense, and satisfying episodes of television ever!! They laid everything on the table this episode, and the last 20 minutes left you speechless! While we spent most of our time in the North with #TeamSnow, we also got to see Dany also hold it down with her triumphant return to Meereen.

Jamie Lannister

Game of Thrones manages to always bring the heat, no matter who’s involved in it (except for Dorne). While we didn’t get anything in the North, enough was going on elsewhere in Westeros and Essos. This week The Hound went on a rampage to exact his revenge against the Brotherhood Without Banners for their slaughter of his former village. Brianne and Jamie got involved in a little politics in The Riverlands. More and more politics happened between Cersei and the Sparrows. Tyrion bit off more than he could chew with The Masters, and Arya and The Waif once against got to meet up for their usual “dance.”

Jamie Lannister

This week’s Game of Thrones episode “Blood of My Blood” dropped a few bombs for everyone. The showdown between the Tyrell/Lannisters and the High Sparrow didn’t go as planned. Arya finally made a choice if she was going to be No One. We got reunited with someone from a long time ago! And of course, Danny got to deliver yet another badass speech.

George R.R. Martin to Skip Cons to Focus on Work

They say all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, but what about George? The “George” in this case is author George R.R. Martin, the author of a series of books that are the basis for a little show you might have heard of called Game of Thrones. The HBO series is about to enter its fifth season, and the reason that matters is because if the show goes into season six it may officially be entering uncharted territory. That is to say that it will be forced to move on through the arc of the story without Martin’s books to guide them. And that’s one of the reasons that Martin says he’ll be bowing out of appearing at a number of high-profile cons this summer, including San Diego Comic Con, to finish book number six. (more…)

George R.R. Martin Gives Doubting Fans the Finger

It’s one of the big concerns among fans of George R.R. Martin and his A Song of Fire and Ice series – that the 65-year-old writer is going to run out of steam and bite the big one before he manages to finish the final installment. It happened with Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time, so we’re naturally a bit worried that history may repeat itself. As a result, people scream and complain that he’s not writing fast enough. “Where’s the damn sixth book?!” echoes through the halls of the Internet on a regular basis. Now, Martin himself is stepping up to fire back at his paranoid fans. (more…)

The latest teaser for season three of HBO and George R.R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones has hit the Internet and while it might confuse some of the “television only” series fans, those that have read the books should understand the true horror this little teaser is foreshadowing. Check out the teaser then take a look at the song lyrics below if you had trouble making them out.

The song Lyrics:

And who are you, the proud lord said,

that I must bow so low?

Only a cat of a different coat,

that’s all the truth I know.

In a coat of gold or a coat of red,

a lion still has claws,

And mine are long and sharp, my lord,

as long and sharp as yours.

Those that don’t want to take the chance of spoiling anything might want to stop here. Those of brave heart and mind click the jump.
