Amanda Peet knows how Game of Thrones ends

Marriage is not easy. Game of Thrones reminds you that every now and then with a wedding. But even when it’s not about life and death, marriage still asks the price of answering for your partner’s crimes. Amanda Peet, an American actress well known for films like The Whole Nine Yards and 2012, has had to answer for pretty many deaths committed in her husband’s show. And the questions only get bigger as the giant called Game of Thrones’ end is near at hand.

Amanda Peet knows how Game of Thrones ends

The actress who’s married to Game of Thrones co-creator David Benioff talked to Page Six at the premiere of her Amazon Video series, The Romanoffs. On being asked if she was privy to the information about the ending of A Song of Ice and Fire, she said, “I am scared and uncomfortable when people ask me about it. I am trying to be really good.” Jon Tenney, her co-star from The Romanoffs, chimed in as a fan, “I couldn’t get it out of her. I tried, I asked her a few times.”

Peet faced a similar crisis when she came on the American talk show, Live with Kelly and Ryan. Immediately after congratulating for her husband’s show winning big time at the Emmy’s, the hosts enquired if she has access to the Game of Thrones secrets. “I don’t want to go down this road right now,” she responded. Taking that as a yes, the hosts kept pushing the fan vibe. “I have a really bad poker face,” she gasped.

The clamour of Tell-Us-What-Happens went on and she admitted, “I know what happens, and I feel really uncomfortable that I know what happens.”

Shunning any further conversation on the topic, she added, “So I am gonna have to go now.” Kelly, however, asked one final question before proceeding with the interview, “They have already finished filming it, yes? Or can you not tell us that?” Calming herself down, Amanda replied carefully, “They have finished filming. Yeah!”

As the end gets nearer, Game of Thrones showrunners and everyone related is doing everything in their capacity to keep the secrecy intact. Do any of you have a story of closely guarding your spouse’s sought-after secrets? Tell us in the comments.

Most viewers were satisfied with the final season of Game of Thrones, says online poll

Most viewers were satisfied with the final season of Game of Thrones; says an online poll

Game of Thrones is one of the most talked-about things in recent times. Although one means no disrespect towards the saga of Ice and Fire, the popular opinion has seemed to lean towards the negative during and after the show’s final season. Inconsistent character arcs, premature swansong, lack of explanation, etc. were some of the opinions floating around the internet and our social circles. The dissatisfaction felt very real when more than a million people signed a petition to urge HBO to remake the final season.

While it’s easy to take the Mountain i.e. the Game of Thrones down on negative howls, it takes a lot more than a Hound to actually do so. YouGov, internet-based market research and data analytics firm proved the same with a recently conducted online survey. It has revealed some interesting data related to our beloved show and its reception among the viewers. And it’s not all negative. Read on!

Most viewers were satisfied with the final season of Game of Thrones; says an online poll

The company conducted the digital poll keeping Emmy’s in the eye. It speaks for the nominated shows on behalf of 2475 US adults selected from a panel of 1.2 million individuals. The sample size doesn’t seem so significant and even limits the geography to the USA. Yet it can account for popular opinion due to random sampling involved in the selection of the participants.

Without any further ado, let’s dive into the findings that pertain to Game of Thrones.

The extent of satisfaction: 52% of participants said that they were “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied” with the final season of Game of Thrones. So yeah, most people seem to be satisfied. However, 41% expressed that they were unsatisfied, with 7% choosing no sides. Not the result one anticipated for Game of Thrones before the final season aired.

Outstanding Drama Series: 18% of people chose the HBO series as the most deserving show to win the Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmy’s; the most for any show. We know that there’s going to be no more Game of Thrones, at least not in the present form. So, it could be an emotional choice or perhaps a callback for the cumulative experience the series has generated over the years. Or maybe, they genuinely liked the whole thing!

Level of Engagement with the show: 18% said that they had watched every single episode of Game of Thrones to date; while a whopping 44% have neither watched a single episode nor intend to; again the most among all the shows. This feels ironical; a show that got more eyeballs than any other show has also managed to escape the fancy of an equally huge number.

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss: When asked if they would be interested in watching something that the Game of Thrones showrunners make, 29% expressed an interest while 38% chose to be uninterested in their future ventures. The duo has received the maximum flak for the final season not being up to the mark. No wonder, the results don’t reflect otherwise.

Now, these revelations are not set in stone nor do they speak on behalf of everyone. There is even a margin of statistical error in the analysis itself. But they do involve a methodology and represent a general trend towards the sought-after show. Game of Thrones has sparked conversations with every new season since its inception. And it’s still very much alive, especially with multiple promising prequels in the pipeline. In spite of all that, we can hardly say that the show got an ideal farewell from the viewers.

If you were to ask us, we would say we were content with the final result; i.e. the final position of every character in Westeros or to the West of it (Arya), although we don’t think this was the best way to reach there. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments below.

Emilia Clarke is vacationing in India with Rose Leslie, reveals details on Instagram

Game of Thrones stars have had one of the more stressful jobs of the decade, being so popular, and acting in a show that has an intense production as well as the attention surrounding it. So it’s understandable when you hear that the Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, is currently on a spiritual vacation to India, accompanied by none other than Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte, and they seem to be having a great time. Read on!

Emilia recently posted a bunch of pictures through an Instagram post, showing her and Rose having the best time in India, and even getting robbed by some monkeys. Check it out:

Emilia says in a hashtag in the caption that she was at Ananda Spa Himalayas, and then discusses her off time spent in India with her bestie, Rose Leslie. Looks like the pair left Kit Harington behind on this little trip. Emilia also revealed that they were robbed by monkeys, which is quite a common sight in some parts of India and even included a picture of a bunch of adorable monkeys caught red-handed.

Emilia also seemed to have gotten some reading done in her time in India, and it seems like it was, all in all, a relaxing trip after a decade on Game of Thrones. That’s not all, a while ago, Emilia had revealed that she was about 1/8th Indian, through her grandmother that was half Indian, and that she loved that part of herself.

Well, it’s unclear if the pair are still in India, but you might spot them around if they are. Talk to us in the comments, down below!
