We recently reported that the seventh season of Game of Thrones won the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys in seven different categories. The creative team receiving the award included: Sam Conway, Joe Baur, Steve Kullback, and others. But, post the event, during an interview, the VFX supervisor of Game of Thrones Steve Kullback accidentally slipped out a major spoiler about Tyrion Lannister in the final season. Read on but, at your own risk as it may spoil your experience of watching the new season.

[POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD! CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK!]

Kullback accidentally slipped out, “And we can’t tell you in what episode Tyrion dies…or doesn’t.” And guess what happens, all the team members start shushing him down and Sam Conway slams his palm into his forehead – his own way of being taken aback. Then Joe Baur steps in to change the topic and starts talking about the efforts taken in by other creative team members. But, what if he did it on purpose to throw the fans away? Let’s discuss it in detail, but before that just take a look at the part where Kullback gives away the spoiler.

Tyrion Lannister has so far been a fan-favorite character on the show. People have loved his diplomacy, his humane, and his clever way of dealing with difficult situations. But lately, his character has gone down a step, especially with his failed tactics with the Siege of Casterly Rock in Season 7. The seventh season also left with many unanswered questions about him such as – what deal did he make with Cersei and what did his concerned look over Daenerys and Jon’s boat scene mean?

Also, recently enough the actor (Peter Dinklage) even discussed that concerned look of his in the series finale with the Entertainment Weekly.  He said that Tyrion might have gone down a path of jealousy seeing Jon and Daenerys coming together. He revealed:

“No, ah, it’s complicated…A lot of the time with Tyrion, it’s professional and personal. Obviously, he has feelings for Daenerys. He loves her — or thinks he does. She’s awe-inspiring. He’s questioning that because he doesn’t have a good track record for falling in love. There’s jealousy wrapped up in there. And he loves Jon Snow, too. They’re the two people he has the most in common with, in a way — they’re both outsiders in their own families who have refused to follow the path their family has taken, and hopefully for the better. He’s wondering how smart of a move [Jon and Dany getting romantically involved is] because passion and politics don’t mix well. He knows the two of them getting together could be very dangerous.”

Personally, Tyrion is one of my favorite characters on the show and being a die-hard fan I don’t want him to meet a bad fate! So, what do you think? How credible is this spoiler for Season 8 and how hyped did it make you? Tell us in the comments.

George R. R. Martin promises to finish The Winds of Winter before writing for House of the Dragon

Game of Thrones might be over, but the franchise is alive and kicking. We still have at least two books left to come, and HBO has just announced he first prequel to the series, named House of the Dragon. The key factor is that both the books, and this show, require George R. R. Martin to write, and the prequel announcement was concerning fans about the fate of The Winds of Winter. George however has cleared those doubts by revealing he’ll be finishing The Winds of Winter before staring with the prequel. Read on!

George took to his Not a Blog to discuss the prequel, knowing fully well fans were concerned that it might lead to a further delay in The Winds of Winter coming out. George wrote, giving an insight into the development of the prequel:

“Ryan Condal has already done a considerable amount of writing on House of the Dragon, but a lot of work remains ahead of us. There’s a writer’s room to be assembled, episodes to be broken down and scripted, a cast and crew to be assembled, budgets and production details to be worked out. As yet, we don’t even know where we will be shooting… though I expect we will revisit at least some of the countries David & Dan used for GAME OF THRONES (Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Croatia, Morocco, Malta, and Spain).”

He continued:

“I expect to be involved in all of this to some extent… and, who knows, if things work out, I may even be able to script a few episodes, as I did for the first four seasons of Game of Thrones.”

George made sure to give a little disclaimer, however:

“But… let me make this perfectly clear… I am not taking on any scripts until I have finished and delivered Winds of Winter. Winter is still coming, and Winds remains my priority, as much as I’d love to write episodes of House.”

He also discussed the sad fate of the other Game of Thrones prequel, The Long Night, which was cancelled, and noted that he didn’t think that the cancellation had anything to do with House of the Dragon, saying HBO had enough room for multiple Game of Thrones successor shows. He also expressed his sympathies towards Jane Goldman and others who worked on the show.

In any case, it looks like we might get The Winds of Winter in 2020, at least. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Emilia Clarke poses with Jason Momoa and Kit Harington in the best birthday snap ever

Game of Thrones stars have the best get together, but the latest one is definitely our new favourite. The mother of dragons, Emilia Clarke turned 33 recently, and had a birthday bash fitting for a Khaleesi. The best part of the birthday for us fans is a picture that she posted a picture that is by all means iconic, featuring both her onscreen love interests from Game of Thrones. Read on!

Emilia took to Instagram to share moments from what seems like the best birthday party ever, but without a doubt, the crown jewel of the birthday snaps is Emilia’s picture with Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Khal Drogo, and Kit Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, calling it a “Momoa sandwich” in the hashtags. Check it out:

Well, if only we had gotten this moment on Game of Thrones! Jason Momoa left an adorable comment on the picture, saying “Happy birthday love. So stoked I got to see you 😍”. The picture comes right after Emilia and Jason’s recent reunion on The Graham Norton Show.

Emilia also posted more pictures from her birthday party. Take a look:

The Khaleesi sure knows how to party. There’s a good chance more Game of Thrones stars were present, but we do not have any pictures at the moment.
