BEST MOMENTS

5. The Dragonpit

Game of Thrones season 7 finale review

All the different storylines are finally converging, and we got to see nearly all of the main characters together in one place for the first time. Reunions, fresh alliances, and first-time meetings were all delightful to watch. Everyone looked magnificent. And the reveal of the wight from beyond the Wall was seriously awesome.

4. Cersei the Magnificent

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Cersei owned this season. She turned the tables on what seemed like an inevitable loss. Even as Daenerys dismounts a dragon, Cersei doesn’t lose her cool, and lets her know that she will not tolerate anyone keeping her waiting.

Cersei also thought ahead and pretended to ally with Daenerys and Jon, meanwhile securing a better outcome for herself. Long may she reign.

3. Jaime breaks with Cersei

In one seriously tense moment, Cersei almost has the Mountain slice Jaime in two. Jaime finally stands up to his evil sister and leaves her in order to fight for the good of the realm. We’re proud of you Jaime!

2. Jon & Dany finally hook up

Game of Thrones season 7 finale review

Depending on who you ask, this is either one of the best or one of the worst moments. Jon and Daenerys have finally done the deed, but don’t realize they’re family. Once they find out, we have to wonder how it will react. Our guess is it won’t be good.

1. Zombie Dragon destroys the Wall

What else could possibly be number one on the list? We’ve been waiting for seven years for the White Walkers to breach the wall and march South. Now, thanks to zombie-Viserion, they finally have, and Westeros is in big trouble. Maybe nothing on television has ever looked so epic as the dragon, with the Night King riding on its back, destroying the thousands-year-old wall.

 

WORST MOMENTS

5. No Cleaganebowl

Game of Thrones season 7 finele - Hound Mountain

Quick, let’s interrupt these important negotiations between royalty to talk about this sibling feud. Or that’s how it seemed when the Hound stepped up the Mountain with a few challenging words.

It would have been okay if it had actually resulted in the long-anticipated deathmatch between the two fearsome brothers. We demand Cleaganebowl in the final season!

4. Tyrion’s weird look

Director Jeremy Podeswa reveals the meaning behind Tyrion's worried look in 'The Dragon and the Wolf'

When Jon went into Daenerys’ room, there was an extended show on Tyrion’s face, peering moodily from the shadows. What’s up with that? Is he secretly in love with the dragon queen? Did he make a secret deal with Cersei?

Or did he receive a fast-travel raven from Sam and Bran with information regarding the incestuous relationship? There’s no way to know, but fans are still obsessed with discussing the possibilities.

3. Rhaegar Targaryen, Viserys Version 2.0

11 details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 7 finale: The Dragon and the Wolf

We FINALLY got to see Rhaegar Targaryen, and it turns out he looks almost exactly like Viserys – the petulant Targaryen brother from season 1. While looking similar to siblings is one thing, Rhaegar should have been magnificent to behold, and he just wasn’t.

2. Too little, Too late, Theon Greyjoy

Game of Thrones season 7 finale review

Enough with Theon Greyjoy already. He’s been remorseful of his cowardly ways since before Ramsay even tortured him. Even if he possibly managed to redeem himself, I could never forgive all of the damage he’s done and the pathetic person he’s always been.

His fight with the Iron Islander was also completely unbelievable: after being thoroughly beaten, a couple full-strength knees to the groin apparently don’t affect him. News-flash for those who don’t know: knees to the groin actually hurt quite a bit, even if you don’t have a penis, and he was already beat to a pulp.

1. You got Littlefingered

Aidan Gillen’s fine acting aside, the culmination of the horrible Winterfell plot was embarrassingly bad. One of the greatest minds in Westeros should not have found himself manipulated by the Starks.

The Stark children’s back room conniving was confusing and unjustified, and all to provide a little surprise twist for the audience.

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!

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!
