An ominous new poster for Game of Thrones Season 8 spells war and death

Game of Thrones has always been about character conflicts. Man versus nature, man versus himself, and man versus man. In the latest episode of the show, “The Bells“, we saw one of the show’s long-anticipated man versus man conflict reach its conclusion, as two long-time characters finally faced off. Before we go any further — SPOILER ALERT! Proceed with caution!

Game of Thrones on the surface appears to be about the Starks, the Lannisters and the Targaryens, but we have seen others get quite a lot of screentime. In the last episode, the most prominent sub-plot belonged to the Mormonts, and in this one, it was the Cleganes. We had a long-awaited reunion and we finally got Cleganebowl!

In the last episode, we saw Sandor Clegane, A.K.A. The Hound, leave for King’s Landing, and Arya joining him. Both of them had their missions to kill. The Hound has wanted to face off against his brother, The Mountain, A.K.A. Gregor Clegane, for a long time now, and we finally saw him make his way to him. The Mountain, who is on Queen protection duty, was faced by the Hound as the Red Keep collapsed. We saw Cersei ask the Mountain to stay next to her, but he refused and killed Qyburn when he ordered him to stop. Cersei left, and the two brothers faced off.

It was a brutal fight. The Mountain with his heavy hits, and the Hound with his vengeance. We saw the Hound try hurting the Mountain multiple times, as the Mountain took the attack with no apparent damage. His helmet came off, too, revealing the monster Qyburn had made him. In the end, in what was a great callback, we saw Mountain try to gouge out the Hound’s eyes, quite like he did with Oberyn Martell. The Hound then put a knife through the Mountain’s skull. As he was pulling the knife out, The Hound decided it was time to end Cleganebowl in a tie, as he charged at him, plunging both of them off the tower, into the dragon fire below.

The most anticipated face-off in Game of Thrones, and it ended in a draw. What did you guys think of Cleganebowl? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Cleganebowl was about the only decent thing in this episode.

Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa set to reunite on The Graham Norton Show

There are quite a few Game of Thrones pairings that are iconic, but the top spot belongs to Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa, without a doubt. The actors that played the onscreen couple Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo are great friends in real world. We have seen them reunite quite a lot, but the two are headed for an onscreen reunion, as they’re scheduled to appear on The Graham Norton Show. Read on!

The popular British TV series The Graham Norton Show always has the best guest pairing, and they seem to have totally nailed it this time around. Emilia and Jason will be seen together on the show’s upcoming episode scheduled to air on October 25.

Emilia is currently in the middle of promoting her upcoming film Last Christmas, while Momoa is promoting his upcoming Apple TV+ series See. The two promos seem to have come together beautifully, leading to this reunion. The show will also have Regina King, there to promote her upcoming HBO series Watchmen, and comedian Ross Noble, with Camila Cabello slated to be the performer.

The episode will air on Friday, October at 10.35pm on BBC One, for the British fans of the show. Are you excited to watch the two unite on screen after this long? We sure are. Talk to us in the comments, below!

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Game of Thrones has had a lot of strong female characters, but it would be inaccurate to say that it celebrates femininity. One example is Arya Stark, who is seen as a boyish character for most of the show, and as an extension, we all ended up seeing Maisie Williams the same way. In a recent interview, she discussed what it was like to have to hide her feminine side for the role, calling the experience “horrible.” Read on!

In a recent interview with Vogue, Maisie discussed coming of age in the spotlight, and more. Starting off, she talked about “maturing” about two seasons into the production of the show:

“But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy and I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look like, really manly.”

She continued:

“And they would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year.”

The only glimpse we got of Arya Stark’s femininity came in the last season of the show, with her and Gendry sharing what was the first and only romantic moment for Arya throughout the show. Maisie also said that she felt ashamed to be a girl for a while, and is enjoying her feminine side a lot more now.

Well, it’s safe to say that the fans love this side of Maisie as well. What do you feel? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn’t on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn't on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

The 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards were recently held, and while Game of Thrones didn’t do as well as usual, it was the last Emmy appearance for the show. The show walked away with the Outstanding Drama Emmy, and also had a heartfelt tribute with some of the cast members.

What was surprising, however, was that the winner of the Game of Thrones (or the closest we got to it), Issac Hempstead-Wright, who played Bran Stark, was surprisingly absent from the tribute, but rather in the audience. This perplexed many of the fans:

Well, the logic seems to be that only the nominated actors were on the stage for the tribute, which isn’t a bad thing. However, being that it was the show’s last year at the site, it would’ve been better to have the entire cast on the stage.

What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, blow down below!
