Game of Thrones is coming soon and will be airing on April 14 and recently, we got the news that two of the cast members will be reprising their roles in Season 8 – thanks to HBO who revealed the cast of the premiere. But, what if you get an opportunity to join the Mother of Dragons at the premiere?

We all are familiar with the online fundraising platform Omaze and how heavily it indulges in charitable campaigns. For this, it often partners up with popular movies like Justice League and TV series like Game of Thrones, whose final season is on its way. This time it is giving you an opportunity to join Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) at the premiere of the Final Season of Game of Thrones.

Emilia too gave us a tease of what it would be like to join her at the premiere in a video released by Omaze. In addition to flight tickets and hotel accommodations, the lucky person and his/her friend will also get an opportunity to join Emilia at the red carpet and also an opportunity to dine with her and the rest of the cast members at the official HBO After-party.

Emilia also revealed that ending the final season felt like ‘completing graduation’ to her. She ended with giving away the Game of Thrones ‘superlatives’, which included:

Best Reaction to finding out a character being killed off: Jason Momoa which was hard for Emilia to recover from.

Stark in the Streets and a Wildling in the Sheets: Alfie Allen

Biggest Pranksters: David Benioff and Dan Weiss

Most Likely to Have Insisted on Doing A Nude Scene: Kit Harington

Most Likely to Cry At the Final Game of Thrones Premiere: All of us

So, what do you need to do? All you need to do is donating in the several options available on the website viz. $25 for 250 Entries, $10 for 100 Entries, and, $50 for 1000 entries, and so on. All these donations will be distributed through the Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAFA) to financially support a few.

So how many of you would like to be that lucky winner? Tell us in the comment section 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!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

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!
