Game of Thrones star on the brutal Battle of the Bastards death: It isn't fair

The latest Game of Thrones episode, Battle of the Bastards delivered us one of the best battle scenes that we have seen and it was one amazing episode. The Battle of the Bastards is the biggest battle we have seen so far in Game of Thrones and it was savage! Things didn’t start well for Jon Snow and his army as Ramsay Bolton was successful in luring Jon Snow into his trap by using Rickon Stark as a bait and then killing him. The Boltons had superior numbers and their strategy was also better and for the better part of the episode, they had the upper hand.

However, things changed dramatically when Petyr Baelish arrived with the army of the Vale, which smashed the Bolton army. In the end Ramsay Bolton had to hastily retreat to Winterfell, where he thought that he would be safe but sadly for him and happily for us Wun Wun smashed through the gates and let Jon’s army enter Winterfell. Sadly, Wun Wun perished after helping Jon Snow capture Winterfell.

What happened next made millions of Game of Thrones happy. Jon beat the pulp out of Ramsay and Sansa added the finishing touches by feeding Ramsay to his own hounds. That really was brutal! Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon, who plays Ramsay Bolton spoke with EW about the death of his character and even though he felt that Ramsay’s death was justified, he was of the opinion that it wasn’t fair. Iwan revealed that he knew that Ramsay was dead when he received a call from the producers saying, “Isn’t it great Ramsay ends up on the Iron Throne?

As soon as they said that I said, ‘He’s dead isn’t he?’ It’s cool. I’ve had four lovely seasons here,” Iwan Rheon added. “It’s been great to be involved with such an amazing show. I think it’s kind of right he goes down. Because what else is he going to do after this? He’s done so many things. It’s justified and it’s the right thing to do. It’s the right path. He’s reached his peak. It’s nice for the audience that he goes out on this high, if you will.

He further added that it was unfair that he lost even though he had the better numbers and strategy but at the same time he said that it was the right thing to do.

Jon Snow needs to win because otherwise there’s no hope left in the world. But it is interesting that it isn’t fair. And afterward, Ramsay still thinks he’s won. He’s so arrogant and self assured he thinks he’ll still be fine – until the last minute.

About the his final scene where he was killed by his own hounds, Rheon had this to say. “And it’s a gruesome death. It’s so ironic. He’s been banging on about those hounds all this time.” When he was asked about what he was planning to do next, he said that he wasn’t yet sure and hence didn’t want to talk about it but he said that he needed to write another album.

While talking about what he was going to miss, he had the following to say. “I think I’ll miss the coming here and seeing everyone and getting down and doing it. And I’ll miss when you pick up a script and read it and there’s always one scene in every season where i go, “Thank you so much, thank you, this is such a beauty.” And the excitement of doing that scene.

I am happy to see Ramsay Bolton dead but at the same time sad to see Iwan Rheon leave the show. He is an amazing actor who made us hate his character. We will miss you Iwan Rheon!

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.
