Game of Thrones season 6 finale was a brutal episode, one that left fans craving for more, like it always does after every season. There were many important plot twists in this episode, but it began with Cersei’s final descent into madness. She has finally lost everything she ever held dear. Her children are gone, she no longer has a family apart from her two brothers, one of whom is assisting another powerful queen ready to take Westeros. She burns her enemies, destroys a chunk of Kings Landing, and has now taken the Iron Throne. This is what welcomes Jaime Lannister when he arrives to the city. And in the end we see him fuelled with conflicting emotions as he watches his sister take control of the Seven Kingdoms.
Jaime’s condition is truly conflicted, seeing as he was the one who killed the Mad King to save Kings Landing, but now his own sister seems to have used the Mad King’s methods to get what she wants. Now that she’s made her way into madness, we’re all wondering what’s going to happen with her and Jaime. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime on the show, in an interview with NY Times, spoke about Cersei and how she has nearly nothing to truly love anymore, to have any humanity left in her.
When asked about what season 6 was for Jaime, he said, “It was a season of dramatic change again for him. He was sacked from the job he thought he couldn’t get sacked from — he’s no longer a Kingsguard. He’s back to just being Jaime Lannister; that’s the massive change. Coming back with a dead child was horrific. Leaving King’s Landing the season before, at least they were in control. Coming back he’s faced with this crazy religious uprising and the High Sparrow, and he’s not really equipped to deal with someone like that. Unfortunately Cersei then found a way. Every time he leaves King’s Landing something horrible happens.”
In answer to what Jaime’s intense look to Cersei meant when she took the throne, he said, “I think basically he’s in shock. So many things are going through his head — you look down and you see your sister telling the rest of the world to go to hell. The woman you love has turned into this seemingly mad woman. If you were a couples counselor you would tell him to maybe reconsider this relationship.”
He later spoke about what it would take for Jaime to forsake Cersei. He answered, “I’ve asked myself that question quite a few times. This is such an extreme world, but I’m sure there are people in your life where you go, why in the hell are these people together? Their relationship is abusive and why do people stay in that? Or even get addicted to dysfunctional relationships. But I don’t know how far he has to be pushed. If he can forgive her for this, I think he can forgive her for everything. She was responsible for genocide, she forced their last child to commit suicide. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being this is the moment when you have to leave, I think we are at 99.9. But it’s “Game of Thrones,” so you never know.”
He then spoke about how season 6 was different from the previous seasons. “Obviously there’s the whole being off-book. But I felt there was a sense of the whole thing getting close to the end. As Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff, the show’s creators] have said, there’s 13 episodes left now. It’s not that much when you consider the amount of characters and worlds. Getting to end of Episode 10 you feel almost like, we made it. Daenerys is on her way, she’s got her ships, the whole thing is in motion. I thought every episode had some kind of step forward. Even the episodes that were about laying down story lines, there was always something that got us closer to that final shot of Daenerys on her way.”
Cerise turning into the Mad Queen was a fan theory before the finale episode of season 6, but now that it has almost been confirmed, we can assume based on Coster-Waldau’s interview that a lot more destruction can be expected from Cersei in the coming seasons.
Richard Madden and Kit Harington hit the red carpet at Marvel’s Eternals World Premiere
Game of Thrones stars are no strangers to being in the limelight, but two of the most notable members of the cast have moved on to one of the very few franchises in the world that are bigger than Thrones — the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kit Harington and Richard Madden recently hit the red carpet at Eternals World Premiere, Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest film to grace the big screen.
Harington, 34, and Madden, 35, rose to fame after playing half brothers Jon Snow and Robb Stark, respectively, on HBO’s epic fantasy Game of Thrones. They will be reuniting after almost a decade on screen on Marvel’s upcoming movie Eternals, starring as fan favourite superheroes from The Eternals comic book series.
Madden has been tapped in to play Ikaris, a hero from an ancient race of beings descended from celestials. While Harington will play Dane Whitman, aka The Black Knight, a human who gains superpowers after gaining access to a mystical sword.
Harington hit the red carpet with a brown shirt under a pinstriped suit coat, with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows. He also wore matching black pinstriped pants with a black leather watch strapped to his left wrist.
His co-star Madden opted for a more formal look with a black tuxedo coat over a white dress shirt and black bowtie. The actor sported the early scruff of a growing beard on the red carpet, though it was not as full as his co-star. He completed his look with black tuxedo pants and shiny black shoes for the world premiere red carpet event.

George R. R. Martin loved the House of The Dragon’s teaser trailer
House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.
Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:
“Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).
For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.
(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”
Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!
A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square
The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.
The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower
Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
