Game Of Thrones
This week’s Game of Thrones episode “The Door” continues the streak of captivating episodes this season. We got to meet a new Red Lady, who seems to know more than Melisandre. Civil war is brewing for in the North, and they are definitely developing in the Iron Islands. Arya got a taste of her life as a comedy play. Danny had to say goodbye to one of her closest advisers, and we all tearfully said goodbye to someone near and dear to us all

Without getting any further into it, be advised that the following article contains some spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6, episode 4, “Book of the Stranger.” SPOILER ALERT! Okay, you’ve been warned. If you saw last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, then you saw the powerful last scene, in which Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) takes out the entire Dothraki leadership by setting fire to the Temple of the Dosh Khaleen while she’s still inside. Dany emerges from the inferno, head held high, naked as the day she entered the world, inspiring awe and fear in all present. Now, Clarke shares a few words on the nude scene and whether or not she used a body double.
Jon Sow is back! Yes, that happened last week, but we are still breathing our collective sigh of relief from the end of last week. This week we get to see if the new and improved Jon Snow will be the same person as the previous, or if we are going to meet a totally new person. We also got to see Danny’s new home (hopefully not for long). A few more people we haven’t seen in a while (even a guest star all the way from Season one). While this week’s episode of Game of Thrones was bundled, it helped set up even more for what we will see this season.

Maisie Williams, darling of the Internet, may have stuck her foot in her mouth in a recent interview with BBC Radio 1‘s Nick Grimshaw where she let the cat out of the bag about a Game of Thrones character, that hasn’t been seen since season three, returning to the series in the season six finale. The Game of Thrones’ spoiler snipers must have been napping or taking a smoke break because Maisie is just fine, although she is expecting a talking to by someone on the show or HBO.
Spoilers ahead, click-through at your own risk! (more…)
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…)
