HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5: The Bells

Update: The petition has now been signed by 1 Million Game Of Thrones fans!

1 Million fans sign the petition to remake Game Of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers

Game of Thrones Season 8 is being received very poorly. The fans haven’t been happy with how the writing has been this season, complaining about the haphazard pace and convenient plot. They seem to be so angered with the whole deal that they have now started a petition to remake Season 8 with  “competent writers”. Read on!

While a lot of the complaints about the Game of Thrones have been about the plot development itself, it seems as though the fudged pace could have made it so. The first two episodes were well received, but the third and fourth were both heavily criticized, with the fifth episode, “The Bells“, becoming the worst rated episode of the show.

The displeased fans have now taken to Change.org with a petition to HBO that asks for the final season to be remade. The description reads:

“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

Well, the petition has hit 150,000 signatures as of now and it looks like it could easily hit a million, and more, given the amount of dissatisfaction going around. The final episode plot summary was also leaked and has been getting a lot of hate so the finale could see this petition gain even more traction.

What do you guys think? Would you sign this petition? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

We have launched the Wiki Of Thrones app, which allows Game Of Thrones fans to read news, chat with other fans and also scroll through memes in a single place, with more features that will be released in the coming days. It’s still in beta and is currently live only on Android as we are waiting for Apple to approve it. Please support us by installing the app and do share it with your friends.

I agree. The series deserves much more. The characters deserve better. They had 1hr 30 mins last episode 5 and they spent whole of it burning the city. I saw the making. They spent so much on making the sets what was the point if there was nothing to show?
The audience demands should be considered.

Please also include the link to petition so we can also sign. These writers made GoT just another Marvel or Disney content.

I honestly think that GRRM should have at least written a summarized script if not the book then D & D direct from there. GRRM could have at least seen the scripts and not just the ending. I think he dissociated himself after the 6th season when his insights were needed. Fact remains the original creator is GRRM while the directors are D & D and they both cannot do each others work.

Well this is game of thrones, nobody is criticising the unexpected ending or where ever the show takes us,, the problem is with the incompetent script writing and so many plot holes in the script which was not seen in the previous seasons of game of thrones… so many loose ends in th script is what everyone is yelling about…

Agree, after waiting 2 yrs for the finale it was far from what dedicated viewers and fans deserved and seemed thrown together and contrived, not giving particularly key characters any real depth or consideration worth ending an epic series on. Truth be – I wasn’t expecting much when it came out that there would be such a delay and THEN only 8 episodes. Some endings were appropriate – others cheap – and others yet so offbeat that it seemed like the final episode was written by people who hadn’t watched the first 7. Wondering if a rewind and redo will… Read more »

Amazing. Folks have nothing better than to piss and moan about this? I would LOVE to see ANYONE even come within a MILE of talent and creativity the Game of Thrones writers have given us for the past ten years. I think they did a remarkable job and this ridiculous whining is despicable. Piss pff babies. Deal with it.

Emilia Clarke becomes the first ever Global Brand Ambassador for the cosmetics brand Clinique

Emilia Clarke becomes the first ever Global Brand Ambassador for the cosmetics brand Clinique

The Game of Faces was a powerful thing in Game of Thrones. We know Arya Stark played it brilliantly in the show, showcasing the power of the faceless men. However, Daenerys Targaryen never needed to play it, as she felt omnipotent in her own skin and face. Emilia Clarke is taking that leaf out of Dany’s book, reading it to us in a lovely way. Emilia is now the first ever global brand ambassador of skincare and makeup for Clinique, which is an American dermatologist brand for skincare and cosmetics.

The actress announced her association on Instagram as well as in a brand statement:

“I am proud to join Clinique as the new Global Brand Ambassador. It’s a skincare brand I have regularly used and to now be a part of that family is such an honor. I love the confidence and happiness it brings to the people using their products. Not only is Clinique timeless, but I am proud to work with a brand that makes people feel included for who they are, and unapologetic about helping them to create great skin – no matter what their skin concern is.”

Jane Lauder, the Global Brand President for Clinique spoke on behalf of her company:

“Clinique has been a long-standing advocate for empowering woman with the knowledge that good skin can be created. We were drawn to Emilia because she is optimistic, happy in her skin, and embodies a modern multi-faceted woman who is constantly evolving along with her skincare needs. She is also an authentic user and a fan of Clinique, which was important to us. Emilia will lend her impactful voice to help inspire consumers to embrace their own unique skincare journey.”

In a behind-the-scenes chat with Jane, Clarke talked about her link with Clinique and many other things about her persona.

The company has launched a Clinique ID campaign that Emilia kick-started by choosing an ID for herself. The ID is said to be a customizable moisturizer to find a perfect product to hydrate and treat the skin in a way that suits an individual. One can choose from 20 different combinations for a variety of skin tones and types.

It’s not the first time that Clarke has associated with a beauty brand though. The English actress has also been the face of the Italian fashion brand Dolce and Gabbana’s fragrance line. Without a doubt, she is still ‘the only one.

Our beautiful Khaleesi has had a wonderful last year with a waving Game of Thrones, and films like Above Suspicion and Last Christmas. She also launched SameYou in 2019; a charity aimed at the recovery and immediate rehab of young adults from brain injuries. It’s inspired by her own story of suffering from multiple brain aneurysms.

Emilia has begun the new year putting up a face; and it seems to be a happy one. So, what do you guys think? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Charles Dance to narrate new Netflix docudrama called Rise of Empires: Ottoman

Game of Thrones was one of the most successful TV show ever. Such has been the magnitude of its success that actors who were part of the show seasons ago, are still getting some great work. Of course, some of the actors already had a great body of work before joining the show. One of them was Charles Dance who played the iconic role of Tywin Lannister on the show. We now have an update on Dance’s next big assignment. Read on!

As per Deadline, Dance is going to narrate the Netflix docu-drama Rise of Empires: Ottoman. Dance, who recently starred as Lord Mountbatten in the third season of The Crown, will provide the narration in the original English-language-version of the Netflix show.

Rise of Empires: Ottoman tells the epic 15th-century story of Mehmed II, known as Mehmed the Conqueror, chronicling his astonishing and fabled rise from 13-year-old Child Sultan to toppling Constantinople and becoming the ruler of the Ottoman Empire.

This is going to be another feather in the cap for Dance who has been part of many memorable shows and films in the past. The series is executive produced by Sarah Wetherbee, Kelly McPherson and Emre Sahin of Karga Seven Pictures, and Jada Miranda of STXtv. As per Jada Miranda:

“We’re thrilled to have partnered with Karga Seven and Netflix to bring this cinematic story to life for audiences around the globe.”

Isn’t it great to see Charles Dance associated with an exciting project? Let us know in the comments below!

There is more to cheer for if you are a Game of Thrones fan! Robert Aramayo is not the only Thrones star you are going to see on the Amazon show. Joseph Mawle who played the character of Benjen Stark will be seen playing the the role of a villain in the show.

Amazon announced the show back in 2017 but the release date is not out yet. It is currently expected to release in 2021.
