sophie turner reaction game of thrones ending clue

Unless you have been living under the rock you’d know by now that Game of Thrones is over and Brandon Stark AKA the Three-Eyed Raven is King. That was quite a shocker, wasn’t it? But what’s crazier is that a glaring hint to the Game of Thrones ending had been sitting under our nose ever since Season 1 – a poster with Ned Stark on the Iron Throne, accompanied by – wait for it -a raven (number of eyes unconfirmed).

This was spotted not long after the final episode of Game of Thrones aired on May 19, and the soon the internet was flooded with memes. But Sophie Turner seemed to be as shocked as us when it was pointed out to her at a recent interview with Metro UK.

The interview was part of the Dark Phoenix promotions and Sophie was accompanied by co-star Jessica Chastain. Sophie was asked by the interviewer whether there was any foreshadowing as to how Game of Thrones ended. She recalled the first episode scene where Sansa tells Catelyn that all she wants is to be the Queen. But then Chastain mentions the Season 1 poster. Sophie still doesn’t get it, so she says “there was a raven.”

As the two and two added up Sophie’s mouth literally fell open. Whether a clever foreshadowing or just a quirky coincidence, it doesn’t seem like the cast were in on the joke.

Do you think the Season 1 poster raven was an intentional clue for Bran the Three-Eyed Raven becoming King or just a coincidence? Tell us in the comments!

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss sign $200 million deal with Netflix

Game of Thrones is over now. The show made stars out of a lot of actors, but they aren’t the only people that ended up making gold from the success of this show. Pretty much everybody involved with the show is now in some serious demand, and most of all, it’s the showrunners — David Benioff and Dan Weiss. The pair have now managed to snatch a giant deal with Netflix, which will be their new home. Read on!

Now, we all know about Netflix and how aggressively it’s trying to expand its content library by bringing in some big names. Their latest “acquisitions” are the creators of the Game of Thrones TV series, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who have signed a deal that is being said to be in the ballpark of $200 million. The pair said in a statement:

“We’ve had a beautiful run with HBO for more than a decade and we’re grateful to everyone there for always making us feel at home. Over the past few months we’ve spent many hours talking to Cindy Holland and Peter Friedlander, as well as Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber. We remember the same shots from the same ’80s movies; we love the same books; we’re excited about the same storytelling possibilities. Netflix has built something astounding and unprecedented, and we’re honored they invited us to join them.”

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos also released a statement:

“We are thrilled to welcome master storytellers David Benioff and Dan Weiss to Netflix. They are a creative force and have delighted audiences worldwide with their epic storytelling. We can’t wait to see what their imaginations will bring to our members.”

Other possible deals included big names like Amazon, and Disney, the latter of which already have a work arrangement with the pair, for the Star Wars franchise. With their first Star Wars film set for a 2022 release, it will be interesting to see when Benioff and Weiss get started with their work with Netflix. As far as HBO goes, the studio couldn’t keep up with the offers but will credit the two as executive producers on any Game of Thrones prequels that appear in the future.

Seth Rogen brutally criticized the Game of Thrones ending at San Diego Comic-Con 2019

Seth Rogen brutally criticized the Game of Thrones ending at San Diego Comic-Con 2019

Game of Thrones Season 8 still has fans mad, and one of those fans seems to be the coolest guy in Hollywood — Seth Rogen. As we had reported, the Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss had dropped out of the San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and looks like Seth took it upon himself to talk about Game of Thrones. Read on!

Speaking at SDCC 2019, Seth had blunt criticism for Game of Thrones Season 8 and the showrunners:

“I just wanna say we’re following the Game of Thrones panel, which is a f***ing nightmare, just objectively. I also know that the showrunners didn’t turn up, because they didn’t want to answer questions about the show… I’m not one of the creators of Game of Thrones, I am the creator of other TV shows, so feel free to ask me any Game of Thrones questions you might have throughout the night.”

He was asked what he thought of the ending, to which he replied:

“I imagine those guys regret making Bran the King because, ultimately, he doesn’t have the best story. [Arya] learned all that face shit, where’d it go?”

He also commented on Jaime and Cersei’s deaths, and said he would have liked it better if Jaime killed Cersei:

“I do, honestly. You don’t want to follow these people for three years and then have them die in rubble. Anti-climactic.”

Well, Rogen makes some good points. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gets booed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 for defending Jaime’s ending

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gets booed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 for defending Jaime's ending

Game of Thrones Season 8 is still not done getting all the hate the fanbase thinks it deserves. Like we had reported, the fans were planning on confronting showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss at San Diego but they dropped off from the panel at the last moment. Looks like the fans voiced a bit of their displeasure anyway, booing Nikolaj Coster-Waldau instead. Read on!

As you might know, Game of Thrones had a panel at SDCC 2019, in Hall H, one last time. A few of the stars were present at the panel, including Nikolaj, who played Jaime Lannister on the show. Speaking at the panel, Nikolaj defended Jaime’s death and his return to Cersei by leaving Brienne behind, saying it made sense to him, and that it was perfect for the character. This drew in a few boos from the crowd. Check out the video:

Nikolaj just laughed it off and went on to discuss the hate that Season 8 and the ending received:

“It was surprising the level of absurdity of the online petition. Every season, we had huge controversies. From Ned Stark being killed, ‘I’m never going to watch that piece of shit show again!’ And then there was the Red Wedding. And obviously, the end. I feel so lucky to have met so may fans of the show, and to realize this show has brought so many people together. Watching it, loving it. So obviously, It comes to an end, it’s going to piss you off no matter what. It’s the end! But at the end of the day, it’s absolutely fine. If you hated the ending if you loved it, that’s great. Just don’t call people names.”

Makes sense. What do you guys think? Still mad about Season 8? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
