BEST MOMENTS

4. Tormund crushes on Brienne

Best and worst moments from Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6, “Beyond the Wall”

Probably the most continuous (and satisfying) bit of fan-service the show has been providing recently is the awkwardly cute desire that Tormund expresses for Brienne. Fans who ship the two of them (and who doesn’t?) can’t get enough of Tormund’s hungry looks and Brienne’s faltering response.

Although the two did not see each other in this episode, Tormund couldn’t help gush about his crush – and who better to do so with than the Hound, since she nearly killed him at the end of season 4. The Hound doesn’t seem too thrilled about Tormund’s taste in women, but then again he doesn’t seem too pleased about very much, to begin with.

3. Dragons save the day

Even though they came at the most predictably convenient moment, Daenerys and her three dragons showing up beyond the Wall to burn the walkers to cinders was totally epic. The visual effects were breath-taking as the scene brought the two worlds of ice and fire together.

2. Jon & “Dany”

Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6 review: “Beyond the Wall"

For all of their pride and stubbornness, Jon and Daenerys have finally reached a point where they can see each other for who they really are: equals. When Daenerys looks over the Wall, she is lamenting the loss of Viseron of course, but she’s also waiting for Jon to return. When he does, they share an incredibly tender moment aboard the ship.

While the feelings may be too intense for Dany right now (hence why she pulled her hand away), she still definitely has them. And good news on both sides: Jon has finally bent the knee (albeit figuratively) and Daenerys has vowed to help in the fight against the army of the dead.

1. The Night King turns Viserion

There is almost nothing more tragic than a dragon being killed, and Viserion getting skewered by the Night King’s ice spear was a terrible way to go. However, pulling the dead dragon from beneath the ice and converting it into another undead follower of the White Walkers is a brilliant move, and a game changer in the war that is about to unfold.

 

WORST MOMENTS

4. Gendry leaves almost immediately

'Beyond the Wall' director Alan Taylor admits that they fudged the timeline in the latest episode

We had our moment of celebration in last week’s “Eastwatch”. After waiting for so long for Gendry to re-enter the fray, having him run away without his Warhammer at the first sign of trouble was a huge disappointment.

It’s hard to say what was more bothersome: how anticlimactic that was, or how the timing made absolutely no sense in terms of how long it took him to run back to the wall and for word to reach Daenerys.

3. Death of Thoros

"I used to like polar bears, but not anymore!" says Paul Kaye on his character's death in the latest episode

Thoros’ death was totally anti-climactic. He died from the cold. But wasn’t he a Red Priest? Melisandre is one too, and she’s always going on about how the Lord of Light’s fire is always burning within her so that she is never cold. On top of that, only disposable lookalike extras died out of the remaining human characters, which was pretty predictable and kind of lame.

2. Benjen shows up, then dies

This is why Benjen Stark might've appeared at the last moment to rescue Jon Snow

There was almost no reason for Benjen to show up when he did, and even less for him to stay behind when he could have easily ridden with Jon Snow on the same horse. We got to see him for maybe thirty seconds before the wights overtook him. Instead of touching, it came off as convenient and random.

1. Arya & Sansa’s petty arguments

Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6 review: “Beyond the Wall"

Starks are FINALLY back in Winterfell, but instead of celebrating, the two sisters are at each other’s throats. They absolutely refuse to hear each other out. Sansa comes off as petty and childish, Arya comes off as unreasonable and creepy, and both come off as ignorant.

Meanwhile, Petyr Baelish has the run of the place – Sansa even confides in him. Then sends the most loyal character ever – Brienne of Tarth – far away. Unless it turns out that the girls are playing Littlefinger for a fool (which their private scenes don’t exactly support), this whole storyline is just frustrating and the characters aren’t making any sense.

Emilia Clarke shows her support to Domestic violence survivors

Game of Thrones had plenty of social messages hidden in plain sight. Though it may not be too obvious, it was a representation of our own society. According to recent research, the fantasy show is very similar to real-world human interactions. That’s the reason why the show was such a big hit, people could relate to the characters. The series was a big platform to showcase the Domestic Abuse women face behind closed doors. Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), has come forward in support of them.

Emilia posted a picture on her Instagram with a heart symbol drawn on her hand. She captioned, “This is something I care deeply about, and a problem that is everywhere, but behind closed doors.

For far too many home isn’t a safe place for those living with domestic abuse. I want to reach out and connect to anyone reading this who may feel scared in their own homes during this time.

At home should not mean at risk – we support you. #YouAreNotAlone.

If you or anyone you know is at risk of, or experiencing domestic abuse, you can leave your home to seek refuge. The police will respond to your calls and support services remain available.

Call 999 if you are in immediate danger. If you can’t speak and are calling from a mobile, listen to the operator and, when prompted, dial 55 to be connected to the police who will help.

If you suspect a neighbour or someone you know is currently experiencing domestic abuse please do call 999 and let them take the situation forward.”

It’s time to raise our voices against the issue. Tell us how we can curb the violence in the comments below!

Even though the year 2020 has ruined so many holidays for us, we can’t let go of the festive mood. Christmas is around the corner, and it’s time for cakes, cookies and presents! Festivals are one of the few occasions that strengthen the bonds of a family. It seems like singer Joe Jonas is already a step ahead, gifting his wife Sophie Turner an early Christmas present. The Game of Thrones star was really happy about it and proudly showed it off on Instagram.

Joe gifted her a T-shirt covered in throwback photos of singer and actress Miley Cyrus. The top is emblazoned with the words ‘Hannah Montana’. It features photos of Cyrus both in character as the Disney icon Hannah, who she played between 2006 and 2011, and as herself after she had shed her Disney image.

“Thanks to the Hubbs of the year for my early Christmas gift,” Turner wrote alongside a photo of herself posing in her new item of clothing.

They welcomed their baby daughter Willa in July this year. Sophie has got a tattoo tribute to her daughter. She has the letter W inked on her wrist below the J she already had for her husband.

Send your best wishes to Sophie and her cute little family in the comments below! Merry Christmas to all of you!

Iain Glenn’s The Racer drops Exclusive Clips and Poster for the cycling drama

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. The fans of the fantasy series miss the show dearly. The cast of the show has moved on to newer projects. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) is busy shooting for Modern Love (And preparing for fatherhood as well). Iain Glenn (Ser Jorah Mormont) has completed the shooting of his upcoming movie The Racer.

Directed by Kieron J Walsh, the movie circles around a series of scandals that took place at the 1998 Tour de France. The film was the opening film for the Cork International Film Festival. Though fictional, The Racer shows the dangerous lengths teams will go to for a competitive edge. Iain Glen plays the team’s Mr Fixit with the syringes and vials, Sonny McElhone.

Vertigo Releasing will be releasing The Racer in UK cinemas and on streaming platforms from 18 December. The Racer was due to premiere at SXSW back in March before it was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Empire.com has shared an exclusive clip from the movie along with a poster. Below are some snaps from the clip. Let’s check them out!
