HBO denies permission to George R.R. Martin’s theater to screen Game Of Thrones Season 8 finale

HBO will not allow Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico – which also happens to be owned by A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin – to screen the Game of Thrones Season 8 finale. The cinema has been holding free screenings of Game of Thrones season premieres and finales for some time and they even screened the Season 8 premiere. Why HBO chose not to give permission this time is anybody’s guess.

The news came up on Jean Cocteau’s Facebook Page. They posted an image of Septa Unella with the caption: “Shame. Shame. Shame. We are sorry to report that we will unfortunately not be able to screen the Game of Thrones finale here at the Cocteau. We would like to thank everyone who has come out over the years to dress up in costume and watch these episodes with us – we do it for you!”

Elias Gallegos, Martin’s film and media director, told KOB4 that “Our trusty staff at Jean Cocteau Cinema obviously are disappointed that they’re not going to be allowed to stream the season finale of season 8.” He is in the dark as to why this little tradition was not allowed for the final episode of the series.

“They just said no, and so we’ll have to have our own private home parties and enjoy it like the rest of the fans out there.”

However, Gallegos is quick to assure that there is no misunderstanding between Martin and HBO on this regard – “George has a great relationship with HBO. He’s got a lot of things in the works coming and so as diligently as he is working on that book there’s a lot to come from George R.R. Martin.”

There there. Looks like we need not worry about the fate of those spinoffs just now.

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

Game of Thrones final season might not have gotten the expected response from critics and fans with regards to the rankings, the show still has maintained its viewership figures.

A report by The Wall Street Journal says that the finale of the show garnered a record viewership of 19.3 million viewers, including the live TV viewership, and streaming viewership from HBO Go and HBO Now. The live TV views accounted for 13.6 million of those views.

This not only make the episode the most watched Game of Thrones episode of all time, but also makes it the most viewed HBO episode in history, standing above some pretty great television.

Season 8 has consistently broken the viewership records for the show, starting right from the premiere. The last episode of the show being the most watched is quite fitting, given Game of Thrones had been HBO’s poster child for a long time now.

Fans spotted two water bottles in Game of Thrones Season 8 finale

HBO releases photos from the series finale of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones did it again. The series finale — Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne” aired today, giving the show an epic conclusion. However, there was one tiny fault. They forgot a couple of water bottle in the frame. Read on!

After the last goof where a coffee cup was spotted in the frame, leading to $2.3 billion of free advertising for Starbucks, you would think something like it wouldn’t happen again. However, in today’s episode, two water bottles managed to make its way into the scene.

Both the bottles were spotted in the Dragonpit scene, where Tyrion is brought for a trial in front of all the lords and ladies of Westeros. The first bottle seemed to find its way to this very reputable company, sneaking right next to John Bradley’s leg. Looks like Samwell Tarly was thirsty. The second water bottle was next to Liam Cunningham’s leg. He played Ser Davos on the show. Take a look:

Well, at least it wasn’t as up and front as the coffee cup. The fans still managed to spot it, as eagle-eyed as they are. HBO is yet to comment on this goof.

Did you spot the cup? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game Of Thrones aired its final episode and the show is over but we have some big plans for the community. Please visit our newly started Patreon page to read about our plans.

Nobody is Emotionally Ready for the Ending of Game of Thrones, Not Even Emilia Clarke!

Game of Thrones is in its final hour. The last episode of Season 8, which is also the series finale, airs in a few hours, and one of the biggest stars of the show, Emilia Clarke, took to her Instagram to say an emotional final goodbye to her character, Daenerys Targaryen. Read on!

Emilia’s performance as Daenerys has been magnificent over the years, and in the latest episode, we saw her character take the Mad Queen turn, extracting a performance from Emilia that was stellar, no matter how the episode was received. In an Instagram post, Emilia played homage to the character, and everybody involved:

Finding the words to write this post has left me overwhelmed with how much I want to say but how small words feel in comparison to what this show and Dany have meant to me. The mother of dragons chapter has taken up the whole of my adult life. This woman has taken up the whole of my heart. I’ve sweated in the blaze of dragon fire, shed many tears at those who left our family early, and wrung my brain dry trying to do Khaleesi and the masterful words, actions (and names) I was given, justice. Game of Thrones has shaped me as a woman, as an actor and as a human being. I just wish my darling dad was here now to see how far we’ve flown. But to you, dear kind magical fans, I owe you so much thanks, for your steady gaze at what we’ve made and what I’ve done with a character that was already in the hearts of many before I slipped on the platinum wig of dreams. Without you there is no us. And now our watch has ended. @gameofthrones @hbo #love #motherofdragonsoverandout

A post shared by @ emilia_clarke on

She shared a picture with all her co-stars in costume, one with the stars and the showrunners, chilling, one of her beautiful braided wig, and a selfie.

She reflected upon how the character has shaped her and thanked the fans for watching and loving her. She also wished that her father could see all that she has achieved.

Well, we’re sure he would be proud of her. Game of Thrones series finale airs in a few hours. Are you ready? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game Of Thrones is getting over in a few hours but we have some big plans for the community once the show ends. Please visit our newly started Patreon page to read about our plans.
