Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds to play a Wildling in Game of Thrones Season 7

Game of Thrones has made its way into popular culture, in a way that is not quite like many other TV series. It is rather rare, and we think that a major reason for the show being what it is that it has a strong cast, and its cameo game is impeccable. Game of Thrones season 7 seems like will have more than just its own share of cameos. We had previously reported that New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, and singer/musician Ed Sheeran have been confirmed to make cameo appearances in Season 7, with vague rumors about cameos by the rock band Bastille, and UFC star Conor McGregor. Now, we have news about yet another Season 7 cameo, this time by Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds, who will be playing a Wildling.

Hinds confirmed the news while talking on the The Jasta Show podcast, hosted by Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta. Hinds said :

“I just came back from my second cameo Game of Thrones. This time, I had my broken leg and they were like, ‘You’re doing the best zombie walk, we want you to come right towards the camera. I want you to drag this axe behind you.’ I’m like a reborn, come-to-life Wildling turning into a White Walker.”

This is the second time Brent Hinds will appear on Game of Thrones. He has played a Wildling on the show before, back in Season 5, where he appeared along with his band-mates. Mastodon also wrote a song for the Game of Thrones mixtape, Catch the Throne Vol. 2., titled “White Walker.” Showrunner Dan Weiss is also said to be a huge Mastodon fan.

If you don’t remember the Mastodon cameo, check out the picture with Hinds and Bill Kelliher, the other guitarist from Mastodon, in their Season 5 cameo costumes:

Game of Thrones will return with Season 7, and a big load of cameos, on July 16.

Daenerys faces the truth about Jon’s parentage in Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

jennys song refers to dany-jon's fate

So. The cat is out of the bag. Daenerys knows she is not technically the rightful heir to Iron Throne after all. A secret male heir exists, who happens to be the man she fell in love with and came to help, leaving the war for her throne unfinished. Aw, bugger!

daenerys faces the truth can she handle it

 

In an episode filled with emotional moments and last-minute passionate exchanges, this was perhaps the most difficult and awkward conversation and certainly carrying the most weight. Jon Snow told Daenerys Targaryen, his Queen and paramour, that he is the secret son of Rhaegar Targaryen, Daenerys’s elder brother. As Rhaegar was the crown prince and Jon is the male child of his body, that makes him a better claimant to the throne than Dany, Rhaegar’s sister.

The scene is poignant in many ways. Robert Baratheon claimed that Rhaegar had raped Lyanna, and even Dany believes that version, even though Rhaegar is her brother. In telling her the story, Jon not only announces his own identity but also clears the name of his birth-father from a terrible rape accusation. This also puts their relationship in jeopardy, as their ancestry makes it incestuous, and the North may be even less inclined to accept them as a couple.

Season 8 Episode 2 Daenerys Faces The Truth. Can She Handle It?

From Daenerys’s perspective, this is a terrible blow to everything she has known and believed about herself. She has received only coldness since arriving in the North. Sansa has made it clear, despite Dany’s efforts to reach out, that the North will not accept her as Queen any time soon.

Naturally, her first thought is, Jon’s brother and best friend are cooking up a story to pit him against her. Jon, on the other hand, has no such doubt about either Bran or Sam. They are ‘saved’ from this impasse when the alarm sounds, but the issue remains. The preview of the next episode has them standing on a high place, much like the dragon lair. It seems they are going to battle together.

The big battle is coming, and the survival of all of them is put into jeopardy. Will learning about Jon’s parentage affect the Dany’s response in the battle in any way? And if they survive, is this the end of their romance?

Guess we will have to sit out the Season to know that!

Jon Snow’s Direwolf, Ghost returned in the latest episode but fans weren’t thrilled

The direwolf Ghost is back in the latest episode but fans aren't thrilled

The second episode of season 8 saw the return of the good boy, the good boy being the best thing that has ever happened to Jon Snow AKA his direwolf Ghost. We last saw the direwolf in season 6 during Jon Snow’s resurrection scene. This was when he curled up, patiently waiting for Jon to stop being dead. ‘Twas a scene where a lot of boxes of tissue were passed around.

So there was rightfully a fair amount of anticipation building up to the moment when Jon and Ghost would reunite. Calling that scene in episode two a reunion would be a bit of a stretch. Fans are understandably pissed because they feel they’ve been done dirty. Which they have. I mean, look at this.

There was no build up to this scene, NOTHING. He’s just there, like an afterthought. While this scene sorely disappointed, fan reactions didn’t.

The direwolf was supposed to have some screen time back in season 7 but he finally didn’t make the cut. Turns out, CGI direwolfs are quite expensive, and with dragons hogging the limelight and the budget, there just wasn’t room for more.

So how annoyed were you with this scene in episode two? Don’t hold back, let us know how you really feel in the comments down below!

Daenerys Targaryen tries to make a friend in Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2

Daenerys Targaryen has been seen throughout the show to be someone who can be ruthless, as well as soft towards the ones that she loves. In the latest episode, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” we kind of got to see both sides of her. Before you proceed, SPOILER ALERT! Consider yourself warned!

Since the beginning of this season, we have seen an uneasy air of tension between Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark. In episode 2, we see Jorah Mormont speak some sense into a hot-headed Daenerys, who wouldn’t listen to her usual voice of reason, Tyrion Lannister. With Jorah’s suggestion, Daenerys extends an olive branch to Sansa.

We see her tell Sansa about why they’re similar, being women that have overcome a lot of difficulties and the oppression of men. Sansa quips by saying she thinks Daenerys has manipulated Jon, to which Daenerys says she’s in the North fighting Jon’s war.

The pair seem to be getting along quite well until Sansa asks Daenerys if she’ll let the North be free, and Daenerys doesn’t seem to take well to that idea. That conversation isn’t finished, however, so looks like we might get to see it in the aftermath of the battle that’s coming to Winterfell.
