Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) says Game of Thrones Season 7 pissed her off

Game of Thrones has had a lot of characters, but ones with the amount of charm, cunning, and cuteness of Margaery Tyrell, are rare. Many fans absolutely loved the character and the actress, Natalie Dormer, and were saddened when Game of Thrones killed her off at the end of Season 6. In a recent interview, Natalie revealed that watching Season 7 pissed her off. Read on!

Now, in case you don’t remember, Margaery, her brother Loras, and their father, all died at the end of Season 6, thanks to Cersei Lannister. The only one that survived, was her grandmother, Lady Olenna. Now as we know, Olenna and Highgarden met with bad fate in Season 7, and apparently Natalie did not like it. Speaking to Mashable recently, Dormer revealed her reaction:

“I was a bit pissed off!”

She spoke specifically about the Season 7 episode, “Queen’s Justice,” which had the Lannister forces obliterate all of the Tyrell army, and ended with Lady Olenna dying:

“Just looking at how gorgeous High Garden was — and when the High Garden soldiers were all dead on the floor I felt, you know, protective. It was so stupid. It was that little bit of Margaery that’s still in the back of my brain.

Men wearing my sigil, lying in a pool of their own blood on the floor. I was like, ‘Who’s done this to my home!?’”

Speaking of Lady Olenna’s death scene, which was a great way to go for her, Natalie said:

“It was a very moving scene. You really feel them revving the gears in [Season 7]. There’s got to be a lot of collateral damage to get to the end of Season 8. So you can kind of smell that it’s coming.”

So could Margaery have saved the Tyrells? Natalie thinks so:

“It would not have happened if Margaery had still been alive.”

What do you guys think? Could Margaery have found a way out of the fate that the Tyrells met with? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

no game of thrones sequel says hbo executive

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
