Cersei’s obsession with Elephants has resulted in some hilarious jokes by Game Of Thrones fans

[Spoiler Ahead] Twitter was amused by Cersei’s demand for elephants

The premiere of Game of Thrones Season 8 was more of a warmup for fans. But Cersei’s disappointment over the lack of elephants in her mercenary army set some Twitter users into another kind of warmup- a train of Cersei memes.

In the episode, Cersei had sought a mercenary army from the Golden Company. She managed to hire them with all the gold that she sacked from invading the Highgarden in the previous season. On her orders, Euron must have travelled to Essos to ferry the Golden Company,  and their reported war elephants.

In the books the tale is quite different. The Golden Company was said to be founded by a Targaryen bastard which makes them loyal to the Targaryens above everyone else. We’ll have to wait to see who they pledge their allegiance to finally on the show.

For now, here are some of the best reactions to Cersei Lannister’s unwarranted demand for elephants on water…

For a cunning Queen, Cersei sure had a dumb moment there

 

Some instantly created crossovers and reminded us of recently released Disney movie Dumbo

These Twitter users think Cersei is a diva for wanting the enormous mammals

Even actor Kunal Nanjiani took to Twitter to take a dig at the ill-fitting Cersei dialogue

When it comes to Euron pleasing Cersei

This season better answer some of our burning questions

And what’s a GoT meme if it doesn’t make fun of HBO’s budget

“Tell Cersei it was me” memes made a comeback as well

Thankfully, with just one significant death in the first episode, fans could rejoice and indulge in humour. For they know what kind of gore awaits them in the upcoming episodes.

Kit Harington gags after kissing Emilia Clarke in a behind-the-scenes video

Kit Harington gags after kissing Emilia Clarke in a behind-the-scenes video

Jon Snow has been quite the busy little bee in the season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones. He has been riding dragons, finding out the truth about his parentage, and smooching his aunt. Kit Harington seems to have had a blast through it all, as this outtake video that HBO recently released shows. It is somewhat of a “gag” reel, haha! I cannot even with the quality of my jokes.

More than halfway through the video, after playing some tonsil hockey with Emilia, Kit breaks the kiss. He then starts gagging, but a few seconds later into the video, we realize that Kit was actually faking the gagging and the world starts to make sense again.

The scene in question happens at around the 13:50 mark but we honestly think you should watch the whole thing because, at one point, Kit ends up tripping over his own feet in the snow and somewhere at the conclusion of the video goes into a long-winded description about his nuts getting caught in the buck; a device that recreates the dragons; movements. The whole thing is just so relatable though. Not the bit where his naughty bits take a beating, but the verbal diarrhoea of it all.

Speaking to The Mirror about the kiss, Kit Harington said, “Emilia and I had been best friends over a seven-year period and by the time we had to kiss it seemed really odd.” Given that his wife Rose Leslie (who played Ygritte) is good friends with Emilia made the entire thing weirder. He said, “Emilia, Rose and I are good friends, so even though you’re actors and it’s your job, there’s an element of weirdness when the three of us are having dinner and we had a kissing scene that day.”

Moving forward, smooching between the two might be put on the back burner considering that Jon just found that his lover is actually his aunt. The poor sod just can’t seem to catch a break, what with Ygritte conking out and now this.

What do you think? Does this mean the romance between Jon and Dany will come to an end? Or will they take a leaf from Jaime and Cersei’s book and keep it in the family?

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

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!

Game of Thrones cast struggles to spell Daenerys Targaryen and production begins on GoT prequel

Game of Thrones cast struggles to spell Daenerys Targaryen, Production begins on GoT prequel

Game of Thrones Season 8 is nearly here, and we are in the final circle now. The interview bits from press junkets are rolling in. The latest one is hilarious, and features the cast of the show trying to pronounce the Khaleesi‘s name, despite multiple attempts, and failing. Read on!

On their press tour, in a sit-down with the LA Times, the cast of Game of Thrones were asked to spell out “Daenerys Targaryen“, and hilarity ensued. Check out the video:

The funniest part about this video is Iain Glenn (Jorah Mormont) giving up trying to spell the name out, and Conleth Hill (Varys) not even going for an attempt saying he’s got nothing to prove.

Also struggling were Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Conleth Hill (Varys), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) and Carice Van Houten (Melisandre), and failing. The only actor who passed the spelling test was Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), which we’re sure will make Emilia Clarke proud.

In other news, production on the Game of Thrones prequel seems to have started, and in the early stages. We got some exclusive information and a picture of the same. Our source tells us that the set building has begun on the Antrim coast in Ireland. They have the base built up, and they’ve started to bring in equipment like the toilets and port-a-cabins. Check out the picture:

More on that as it develops.

In the meantime, we have just launched a Game of Thrones Death Pool so that fans of the show have an interesting activity to participate in during the season. You can vote every week before the episode airs and predict whether a character lives or dies. Get the maximum number of correct predictions by the end of Season 8 to win the Death Pool.
