The latest episode of Game of Thrones season 6, No One had some pretty exciting moments. We got to see lot of action and both the Clegane brothers were in a mood to destroy people. The Hound chopped off the head of a member of the Brotherhood Without Banners with an axe and used it to finish off the remaining people. His brother, The Mountain didn’t need an axe and he just ripped off the head of a Sparrow. That’s one brutal way to kill a person. Meanwhile in Essos, Arya managed to kill the Waif after luring her into a room where she had kept her sword, Needle.
We also got to see some reunions when Bronn and Pod met each other and even Brienne and Jaime came face to face. It was wonderful to see these reunions. However, things didn’t go well for Brienne and Blackfish. Brienne failed to convince the Blackfish to help Sansa and the Blackfish failed to convince the castellan to not let Edmure come inside Riverrun. Tyrion and friends were in trouble as the Masters attacked Meereen but luckily Daenerys arrived on time.
With so many things happening, there were many details which you might have missed. So here we are back with the Game of Details for Game of Thrones season 6 episode 8, No One.
1. The things we do for love
While talking with Edmure Tully in the tent, Jaime Lannister repeated an iconic line from the first episode of Game of Thrones season 1, when he pushed Bran Stark out of a window.
2. A YouTube star who does Game of Thrones impressions made a cameo in the episode
The Hound went on a rampage in the episode, killing people with an axe. Among the people he killed, was a face which many Game of Thrones fans recognized. We are talking about the person who got his head chopped off by the Hound and his name is Steve Love, who is known for his Game of Thrones impressions. Read more about his Game of Thrones role over here.
3. Cleganebowl has been cancelled
In the latest episode, King Tommen made an announcement that from now onwards Trial by Combat would be banned in Westeros. This means that Cersei wouldn’t be able to use the Mountain to free her and with it all hopes about seeing the Cleganebowl have been dashed. Now we can only wait and watch if in the future there’s any fight between the two brothers but as of now it seems highly unlikely.
4. The rumour about which Cersei and Qyburn have a discussion
Just after Tommen made the announcement banning Trial by Combat, Qyburn had some good news for Cersei. “Your grace, that old rumour you told me about … my little birds investigated,” was what he said to Cersei and when she enquired, “And? Is it just a rumour or something more?“, he replied by saying, “More, much more”
Both of them might be talking about Wildfire as there’s a theory about Cersei being the Mad Queen and according to the theory, she will use the Wildfire to eliminate the High Sparrow and his followers. We have seen a wildfire explosion in Bran’s visions and it was very prominent but such an incident hasn’t yet occurred in the show. So it has to be from the future and the show might have given us further hint when Jaime Lannister was talking with Edmure. While talking about Cersei, he said the following to Edmure, “Start a war. Burn cities to ash. Free their worst enemies … The things we do for love.”
The burn cities to ash part might be a reference to Cersei using Wildfire to eliminate the High Sparrow.
5. Tyrion’s incomplete joke
In the episode, we saw Tyrion, Missandei and Grey Worm cracking some jokes. However, when Tyrion started his second joke about a jackass and honeycomb, it was cut short as the Masters attacked Meereen. This wasn’t the first time Tyrion tried cracking this joke.
In season 1, when Tyrion was captured by Catelyn Stark and taken to the Vale, Tyrion was asked to confess his crimes. However Tyrion started talking about the pranks that he played when he was young and then he started saying, “I once brought a jackass and a honeycomb into a brothel,” he was cut off by Lysa Arryn
6. Tougher girls than you have tried to kill me
When the Hound was roaming around the forest, looking for the people who killed Brother Ray and others, he came across Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr, who were about to hang 3 of their members for slaughtering Ray and the villagers. At that time, the Hound said ,”Tougher girls than you have tried to kill me,” after a person pointed arrow at him.
The Hound was referring to Brienne and Arya, who tried to kill him but failed.
7. I prefer chicken
When the Hound was having food with the Brotherhood Without Banners, he told Thoros that he preferred chicken. This is a callback to the famous scene from from season 4 when the Hound killed people over few chickens.
7 details you might have missed in the House of the Dragon teaser trailer
HBO gave a huge surprise by releasing the House of the Dragon teaser trailer and Game of Thrones fans couldn’t contain their excitement. The trailer is short, but it still gives us enough information to keep us excited till the time the prequel airs. As usual, we watched the teaser trailer multiple times to spot anything that seemed interesting and we have found out a few details that you might’ve missed in the House of the Dragon teaser trailer. So let’s get started.
1. We have a Dragon in the trailer
The trailer starts and we have a blink and miss appearance by what seems like a dead Dragon. Can this be Balerion, the Black Dread? We know that Balerion died before the events of Dance of the Dragons occured and looking at the number of candles lit in front of the skull, it sure looks like the Dragon has to be someone as special as Balerion. If you think otherwise, please let us know in the comments.
We finally got a glimpse of the legendary Valyrian steel sword, Blackfyre and it is held by Paddy Considine, who’s playing King Viserys I Targaryen. Blackfyre is a Valyrian steel sword that was once wielded by Aegon the Conqueror and it is the most famous Valyrian steel sword owned by House Targaryen.
3. Dark Sister
The trailer also gives us a glimpse of another legendary Valyrian steel sword, Dark Sister, though it is really difficult to spot it in the trailer and it is barely visible for a second. Dark Sister is the other ancestral Valyrian steel sword owned by House Targaryen and it was wielded by Aegon Targaryen’s sister/wife, Queen Visenya Targaryen. In the prequel, the sword will be wielded by Daemon Targaryen. So thanks to the sword, we know that Daemon Targaryen is fighting in the scene.
4. Catspaw dagger
The most interesting part of the teaser trailer features Alicent Hightower holding the Valyrian Catspaw dagger in her hand and this is the third Valyrian blade that we get to see in the teaser trailer. The Catspaw dagger has played a major role in the Game of Thrones TV series. The dagger was used by Arya Stark to kill the Night King and it also featured in a number of important scenes in the show.
5. Tourney at Horn Hill
We see a jousting event happening with two big banners of House Tarly in the background. That can mean only one thing, that the tourney is happening at Horn Hill. Also, in the same scene, we can see the sigils of both the participants.
One happens to be a knight of House Tarly and the other belongs to House Cole and we are assuming that it might be Ser Criston Cole, who will be played by Fabien Frankel in the prequel. If you take a look at the knight on the right side, he’s holding a shield bearing the sigil of House Cole.
We can see the sigil of House Tarly in the photo below.
6. Stark sigil
This is a minor and maybe insignificant piece of information but seeing House Stark sigil in the trailer felt really good and we can also see the sigil of House Bolton next to the Stark sigil.
7. New Iron Throne
It appears that House of the Dragon is going to do things differently and Iron Throne looks different from the one that we have been used to seeing all these years in the Game of Thrones TV series.
As we mentioned in our earlier article, the Iron Throne looks similar to what George R.R. Martin imagined it to look like. Here’s the most accurate depiction of the Iron Throne according to George R.R. Martin. The artwork was done by Marc Simonetti for George R.R. Martin’s 2013 Ice & Fire calendar.

Who is Ser Harrold Westerling? Here’s who Graham McTavish is playing on House of The Dragon
Not long ago, several pictures of Graham McTavish were leaked on the internet, wearing a full-scale Kingsguard body armour from the set of House of The Dragon. Recently, it has been confirmed by House of The Dragon’s official Twitter handle that he’s playing Ser Harrold Westerling on the show. Here’s a quick look at McTavish’s newest persona.
Ser Harrold Westerling is a knight of House Westerling and the Lord Commander of Viserys I Targaryen’s Kingsguard. Harrold is one of the longest-serving members of the Kingsguard. He was once a powerful knight with a successful military background, and eventually succeeded Ser Ryam Redwyne as Lord Commander. He is tasked by the king to watch over and guard Rhaenyra Targaryen.
Harrold Westerling was announced as a recurring character in House of the Dragon on December 8, 2020. The character description on HBO’s official website reads as follows:
“The Commander and longest-serving member of the Kingsguard who still remembers the lustre of the storied Seven Knights. A once-powerful Knight and a successful military background so a man with presence and status. Given the responsibility to the King to watch over and guard the Princess. In the current regime, where widespread peace has led to complacency and indulgence, he feels something of a loss of purpose, but nevertheless serves the King with a fierce, if quiet, loyalty.”
This makes sense as the recent leaks from the House of The Dragon set pictured him in the same vicinity as Olivia Cooke and Milly Alcock, who play Queen Alicent Hightower and a young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen respectively.

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer
Lucifer Season 6 is finally out! The comic book/supernatural based hit series came to an emotional end on September 10 this year with the release of its final season. The show paid a lot of homages to various pop culture icons, including Game of Thrones. Let’s have a look at all the times Game of Thrones was referenced by various characters on Lucifer.
Season 3 Episode 14
Cain aka Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling) has been roaming the earth for thousands of years. He’s tired of losing his loved ones due to an immortality curse placed on him by God. After a long and bloody skirmish with Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), he says and believes he has ‘nothing to live for‘. Amenadiel replies, “Have you tried Game of Thrones?”
Season 4 Episode 8
Lucifer is dealing with his emotional issues, after getting back with his ex Eve (Inbar Lavi). Chloe (Lauren German) tells Lucifer about a prophecy, that apocalyptic events will occur on earth and Hell will freeze over if Lucifer meets his true love. To which he replies, “Perhaps winter is coming.”
Season 5 Episode 9
God (Dennis Haysbert) is on earth and organizes a small family reunion at Linda’s (Rachael Harris) house. Lucifer considers himself the smartest in the family, much like Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones. He drags the chair to sit at the other head of the table in an equal position to his father. Tyrion does something similar at the small council in King’s Landing.
Season 5 Episode 16
Michael and Lucifer (both played by Tom Ellis) have agreed to decide who will be the new God of their universe, by a poll that Lucifer is most likely to lose. All the angels show up at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and Michael is wearing a special medieval warrior-like attire for the occasion. Lucifer mocks him for his poor fashion sense, asking him “Is winter coming or something?”
Season 5 Episode 16
Lucifer and Michael are locking horns for a final showdown, because Michael is willing to kill those who won’t obey him. In a dramatic and long-drawn-out battle, Lucifer defeats Michael with Chloe’s help. He orders him to stand down and ‘bend the knee’, and then goes on to cut off his wings. “Bend the knee” is frequently used by Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, whenever she subdues an enemy.
