Melisandre shocker at the end of premier episode gives way to hilarious memes

Season six of Game of Thrones premiered this Sunday and fans all over the world are happy. But yes, in a state of shock too. The last two minutes of the show were were very distracting for all the fans who were waiting for Jon Snow’s resurrection.

A number of fans resorted to Twitter and Instagram and posted a number of hilarious memes about the last two minutes of the show which showed Melisandre’s huge reveal. What went down in those two minutes, you may ask. It shows us Melisandre in a completely different light. She takes off the necklace she has been wearing since the beginning, takes off her clothes, the camera pans away from the mirror and the aged, stooped body of Melisandre is revealed. She is actually a really really old woman.

Game of Thrones finally revealed Melisandre's big secret and everything you need to know about it

Carice van Houten, the actress who plays Melisandre on the show, had spoken about her age previously in some interviews saying that her character of Melisandre is well over 100 years. But this went unnoticed. Now again, Carice told Entertainment weekly that, “ I was really happy when I read that we were going to reveal that this year. I don’t think a lot of people will see that coming. It makes her immediately more vulnerbale, but also more wise and even more mysterious. There’s also a vulnerability in her age.

Here are some of the Melisandre hilarious memes that we came across the Internet. If you have other funny memes, do share the links in the comments section.

George R.R. Martin amused by Harvard Lampoon’s Game of Thrones parody

They say laughter is the best medicine. Looking at the current scenario, it seems quite fit. With the pandemic on the rise again and no viable vaccine, smiles are the only cure we have. Comedians have often used parodies to induce laughs amongst the audience. Even TV shows and movies have their own parodies. Therefore, it’s not possible for a show as big as Game of Thrones to skip the radar as well. Moreover, it seems author George R.R. Martin is heartily amused as well.

On his personal blog Not a Blog, Martin confessed being parodied in a post. He wrote, “Way way back in 1969, when the world and I were young, the Harvard Lampoon did a hilarious send-up of Tolkien and LORD OF THE RINGS, called BORED OF THE RINGS. It is still in print all these years later. Spam and Dildo, Arrowroot son of Arrowshirt, Pepsi and Moxie… a hoot.

And now, I guess, it is my turn.

The Harvard Lampoon has turned its sights on A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE and come up with LAME OF THRONES.

Yes, they sent me a copy.

No, I have not looked at it yet. I am working up the courage.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say… but the parody is right up there, so…

Thanks. I guess.”

Martin earlier updated fans about House of The Dragon’s progress. What do you think of the Game of Thrones parody? Tell us in the comments below!

Ian McShane and Rory McCann once clashed on Game of Thrones’ set over a burger

Game of Thrones is undoubtedly one of the biggest shows to film in the past decade both in terms of budget and viewership. Managing such a huge franchise is no joke. Even though the showrunners and the crew were careful and worked really hard to make the show near perfect, little accidents and goofs slipped through their clutches. Like the one time, a Starbucks cup was left on Winterfell set during filming. Sometimes things got more serious and resulted in clashes between the actors.

Entertainment Weekly Editor James Hibberd’s book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon delves into such behind-the-set mysteries. Game of Thrones director Mark Mylod revealed one such fight in the book. The clash between Ian McShane (Brother Ray) and Rory McCann (Sandor Clegane) over a distasteful burger.

Mylod described Ian as a force of nature. He said, “He’s gone down in Game of Thrones crew folklore as being the person who most improved the catering. His lunch was brought up to him and he disliked his burger.”

So he kicked it and it went flying, and had a few choice words of what he thought of the burger. The burger whacked into Rory, who was enjoying his burger and had no complaints.”

There is no mention of how Rory reacted over the flying burger. Although according to the co-creator, it was his ‘inner rage’ that landed him his role in the series in the first place. Mark went on to thank Ian, however, because after that incident the show got a new caterer.

How would you have reacted to the flying burger? Tell us in the comments below!

Emilia Clarke and the infamous coffee cup – The saga continues…

Starbucks

Fans have always been a bit nosy when it comes to the personal lives of Game of Thrones cast. When you’re that famous, it is hard to escape the curious eyes of your admirers. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, famous for her bold character Daenerys Targaryen, was spotted with a coffee cup on a cold Sunday morning in London.

The gorgeous actress, who turned 34 last week on 23rd of October, was donning a puffer coat and a brown beanie. She also kept a trusty orange umbrella tucked under her arm to avoid getting wet in case it rained.

Emilia Clarke

Emilia’s snap with the coffee cup is reminiscent of the infamous Game of Thrones’ scene where a Starbucks cup was left on the table. Fans were quick to spot it and were going crazy as it was too silly a mistake to commit for a show that big on budget.

In Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4, ‘The Last of Starks‘, we see Tormund, very drunk, praising Jon Snow for all of his accomplishments. Daenerys is sitting on the table, spiralling into paranoia about Jon’s natural charisma and how much he is loved in the North. When the shot pans out, a Starbucks cup can be neatly spotted right next to Emilia Clarke.

The fans were in a fit over the little goof, and it became an instant meme. Let’s hope Clarke doesn’t have to face any such situation in future. Tell us how you felt about the infamous scene in the comments below!
