Game Of Thrones
Last season of Game of Thrones ended with a fabulous stabbing scene that left Jon Snow bleeding in the snow, surrounded by traitorous men of the Night Watch lead by Ser Alliser Thorne. Fans went ape-shite and the Internet followed. During the months between then, and last night’s episode, fans debated Snow’s fate, was he really dead, would he be brought back somehow? Now we know and Kit Harrington, who spent the summer repeating repeatedly that Jon Snow was dead, has a bit of an apology for fans.

After a yearlong absence, we got to find out what’s been going on with Bran Stark north of the wall. We even got to hear a few more words from Hodor. Ramsay Bolton continues to piss us off even more than Joffrey. Tyrion went dragon hunting. Someone met the drowned God over at the Iron Isles. Since last week was a “set up episode,” and now that everything is set up for the season, now everything’s going in full motion. Needless to say, this was a very exciting episode of Game of Thrones!!

Maisie Williams is a darling of Social Media, if she’s not cracking you up on Twitter, Instagram or what ever platform is popular in that moment, then maybe she’s pranking fans at a local gaming shop, or perhaps she’s crashing a Game of Thrones viewing party with bags of snacks. That’s right, just last night, Maisie loaded up on goodies and picked a twitter posted viewing party near her and headed out. Maisie documented the night with a series of Instagram posts you can check out below. (more…)
Game of Thrones is back!!!! It’s been nine months since our hearts were broken when young Olly thrust his dagger into Jon Snow’s gut “for the watch” along with the other members of The Nights Watch facilitating one of the most ultimate betrayals on the show (and we have had many betrayals over the years). Daenerys “Khaleesi” Targaryen escaped from the attack from the Sons of The Harpy with favorite dragon Drogo, only to be surrounded by a new group of Dothraki. Sansa and Reek went all “Bonny and Clyde” to escape Ramsey Bolton’s clutches. Speaking of Ramsey, he pretty much slaughtered all of Stannis army, while Brienne of Tarth seemingly got revenge for Renly’s death a few seasons ago and killed Stannis herself. Jamie Lannister had to get his niece/daughter from the land of Dorne, as it was not safe, only to discover she had been poisoned in revenge for fan-favorite Oberyn Martell’s death. Arya Stark was left blinded by the Faceless Men after breaking the rules and killing the wrong person. Cersei Lannister’s plan of shaming queen Margaery backfired as the both of them were in the clutches of the High Sparrow and his religious group. While the Queen and her brother remained in custody, Cersei was able to be freed after making the walk of atonement and all the “shame” that went along with it. Is anything missing? Needless to say, Game of Thrones has a lot of moving pieces! There’s a lot that fans have to look forward to with the beginning of this season. Many storylines ended on such drastic cliffhangers, that fans have been clamoring for this new season to start.

It is practically impossible to find a person in an English speaking country right now who hasn’t heard of Game of Thrones. The HBO show has taken western culture by storm in a way that is almost unrivalled by any other piece of modern popular culture. Based on the still unfinished series of novels by George R. R. Martin, the series has launched the fantasy genre into mainstream viewing in an almost unique way. (more…)
Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones is simply delightful. Her Social Media presence should be a rule book for young celebrities on how to handle fame and fans. This time she’s teamed up with NYLON Magazine to prank some Game of Thrones fans as they shop at their local gaming store. Just imagine walking into your local shop and finding someone very familiar looking behind the counter. (more…)
The night is darker and still full of terrors in this latest Game of Thrones season six trailer. In fact, things look down right terrifying for a lot of our favorite characters. With only two weeks until the May 24th return of HBO‘s Game of Thrones, we’re going to see the Internet full of Game of Thrones hype and thankfully, as this trailer suggests, the show is going to deliver. (more…)
If we have to be perfectly honest, we think it’s weird it didn’t happen sooner. Game Of Thrones took the entirety of nerdom (and a whole lot of normies) along for one heck of a ride since its very first aired episode and its high production values, as well as its associated publication drama, would give it tons of points to go over and add to the show’s already huge hype. Apparently, HBO thought so too, six years into the most successful grim and gritty fantasy series ever, which led them to announce…
We’ve learned about the dynamics behind Daenerys’ dragons, and now we’re getting a closer look at the workings of a White Walker. To be more specific, Game of Thrones‘ Youtube channel uploaded a behind the scenes video of the making of the prostheses for the show. The pieces aren’t only used exclusively on White Walkers, but it seems they undergo the most prosthetic-wise. And after watching the video, you may notice that it looks almost as painstaking to stay in that getup all day as it looks to create it! Prosthetic Designer for Game of Thrones Barrie Gower narrates the short video, which clocks in at just under 4 minutes. He explains the artistic process behind creating the prostheses, from getting the briefing of a character, to creating a design concept that’s practical enough to be worn all day. (more…)
Just the other day, it was reported that HBO would disallowing any advance screeners to press outlets, or anyone for that matter, for Game of Thrones Season 6. For those unaware, this is typically a tactic movie studios do when they’re not confident with their product and want to impede early negative press from the media. Never has this done by a TV Network – it’s unprecedented. And before you freak out, it has nothing to do with Season 6 sucking and everything to do with preventing spoilers. GoT is one, if not the highest, illegally downloaded TV series in history. With season 6 venturing into uncharted territory – going beyond the book series – the Network, cast, and creatives are trying their darnedest to keep a tight lid on things.
All the these efforts, and what happens? An actor goes and accidentally ruins things. (more…)
