Jon Snow had two big moments in the first episode and fans went nuts

In the interest of human decency, let me just say this right off the bat; the night is dark and full of terror. Also, this post might be full of spoilers (specifically about everybody’s favourite bastard Jon Snow). So proceed at your risk.

Ever since episode 1 of season 8 dropped today, the only thing that the Game of Thrones fandom has been talking about is this; did Bran Stark get weirder? I’m kidding (not). He totally did.

Two moments from the episode stood out:

1) Jon climbing and riding Rhaegal so clumsily, it makes my dancing skills (or lack thereof) look almost pretty. Almost.

2) Jon finding out about his real parents from Samwell Tarly. About time, I know, right? Ygritte had it SO right with her never-ending yap of “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”  (A quick recap if your memory seems to have failed you after the two year long hiatus. In season 7, Bran along with making everybody uncomfortable with his incessant staring discovered that Jon was actually the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.  This confirms the long-suspected R + L = J theory; Rhaegar + Lyanna = Jon. (Jon Snow (exit) Aegon Targaryen (enter))

Understandably, fans freaked out. All the anticipation that had been building up for two years really hit the ceiling and Twitter did not disappoint. Here are some of our favourite reactions from across the realm.

What did you think about Jon’s big moments? Let us know!

Jimmy Kimmel gives Jaime Lannister his own spin-off with Full House

Game of Thrones is over, but we still have those prequel spin-off shows coming up. However, there’s a catch, these shows won’t star any of the actors from Game of Thrones. However, Jimmy Kimmel has his own solution for this, and he has done that by putting Jaime Lannister in the Full House universe. Read on!

Full House, for those that don’t know, was a popular sitcom that ran from 1987 to 1995, starring legendary actors like Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos. This spin-off skit that debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! has Jaime Lannister join the Full House family, replacing John Stamos’ Uncle Jessie, with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Uncle Jaime. Called Full House Lannister, this wouldn’t be a bad spin-off for Jaime, definitely better than dying with Cersei was:

Cut. It. Off. Hilarious. Anybody who loved Full House and Game of Thrones will definitely love this one. On a related note, it would be great if Netflix’s sequel of Full House, called Fuller House, could bring Nikolaj in for a guest role.

Game of Thrones fans react to Bran Stark becoming King

Game of Thrones has always been about who ends up on the Iron Throne, and in the series finale — Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we got to see the Iron Throne melted down by Dragon fire.

However, we did get a new ruler for Westeros, one who was selected by all the important lords and ladies of Westeros — Bran Stark. This came out of nowhere for most fans of the show, who were expecting Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen to end up on the throne. The fans took to Twitter with a variety of reactions:

Emilia Clarke had a hilarious response to the Game Of Thrones Starbucks cup gaffe

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 had several awe-inspiring moments to be sure. But the one that hogged all the limelight was a Starbuck cup sitting pretty in front of Daenerys Targaryen on the Winterfell high table. Fans have been pointing to Emilia Clarke as the Mother of the Starbucks Gaffe. Emilia finally addressed those accusations on Thursday and promptly passed up the blame to – wait for it – Jason Momoa!

Yep, that’s right. Khal Drogo was supposedly passing by Winterfell and sneaked in to mark his presence on the screen!

Here’s Emilia’s Instagram post ‘explaining’ the situation. Her caption read: “Did I just stumble upon the truth here?! The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea… oh and this ain’t a spoiler just a lost wanderer coming home for a mid-filming cuppa”.

The picture shows Emilia holding a Starbucks cup and posing with Momoa and Peter Dinklage. Emilia is trying to pass off herself as the mere ‘cupbearer’ and implying it was Momoa who was actually drinking from that infamous cup when he visited the set.

The cup, in reality, was not even from Starbucks and was soon removed from the frame. But that didn’t stop everyone from making some hilarious connections. HBO offered a funny response saying: “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered a herbal tea.” Liam Cunningham (who plays Davos Seaworth on the show) brought a Starbuck cup to his interview on Conan, and claimed it found its way there “probably because Emilia drinks too much coffee.”

But now the Mother of Dragon has spoken, and have absolved herself of any blame in the whole matter. All of us plebs can go home now!
