The following post contains major SPOILERS for Game Of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3, “The Long Night.”
Tonight’s Game of Thrones was called “The Long Night,” and while it definitely was that, the long-awaited Battle of Winterfell could have gone worse for the heroes of Westeros...
Winter is finally here, and so too has Game of Thrones already reached its finale. Season 7 is ready to launch us into its last episodes with a finale trailer that brings just about everyone to the table for the first time since Season 1.
The Night King was largely absent from Sunday’s Game of Thrones premiere, save one update that the icy undead have zombie giants in their midst. One giant in particular seemed awfully familiar to fans, to which director Jeremy Podeswa offers a (slight) explanation.
We can barely handle the anticipation of one new Game of Thrones season, let alone four, but since when does George R.R. Martin do anything small? The notoriously labored writer reveals there’s even a fifth potential spinoff in development, in the process dispelling a few fan-favorite ideas like Dunk and Egg.
We’ve reached one of my favorite times of the year: the annual announcement by the Social Security Administration of the most popular baby names from the previous year. Why is that such a big deal, you might ask? Because each year we get to shake our heads at the number of parents who jump on the pop culture hype train and name their children after movie and television characters. While this year’s list showed that old-fashioned names such as Liam, Mason, and Olivia are back in style, it also featured a predictable handful of names from popular 2015 franchises. Sorry, kids.
Game of Thrones cameos are rarely so intrusive as to draw one out of the scene; more often background musicians performing their craft, or the odd extra. That said, we’d almost certainly have noticed Charlie Hunnam, as the Sons of Anarchy star claims he’d once been offered an appearance.
Those celebrating 420 won’t be the only ones blowing smoke today. Game of Thrones Season 7 looks ready to burn it all down in our first official photos from the July premiere, and no ice block will stand in our way this time.
Yesterday brought the very first teaser for Game of Thrones Season 7, which was especially exciting after HBO forced us to watch a block of ice melt for an hour. It featured Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), and Cersei (Lena Headey) all making their way towards their respective thrones. It was an awesome little tease, but the music in the trailer? Not the greatest.
No longer must Game of Thrones fans stare at a block of ice for a CG teaser: Season 7 is here! See Cersei, Daenerys and Jon Snow get some fresh threads in a new “Long Walk” teaser for the July premiere, complete with chilly twist.
It’s taken this long for Game of Thrones to confirm a Season 7 premiere, and lips might finally now be loosening. Straight out of SXSW, Thrones bosses David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirm an even shorter episode order for the eighth and final season.
