Official Season 7 photo showing Jaime and Cersei Lannister sneaks in an important detail

We have long known Game of Thrones to be show for the obsessed, Not only is the show full of dragons, murder and sex, it is also the perfect recipe to please geeks worldwide, in every aspect of the show. We know the show often sneaks in references to future plotlines, or nods to details omitted from the book, time and again, and eagle eyed as the Game of Thrones fandom is, we always tend to find these little easter eggs. The latest one is a tad too sneaky, and comes in with one of the official Season 7 photos HBO posted recently, specifically the one with Cersei and Jaime Lannister. Read on!

The last we saw, Cersei had gone the mad queen way, and blown up the Sept of Baelor, and a lot of people with it. We saw Season 6 ending with Jaime giving Cersei a bit of a look, which we have been reading way too much into, ever since. Now, the official Season 7 photos posted by HBO included one showing Cersei on the Iron Throne, and Jaime standing right next to her. Check it out, below :

A redditor by the name of xpbso, pointed out a detail in the photo that is so sneaky, it needs a lot of zooming in, and a couple of deep looks, to even notice. Let us do just that, zoom in, into the sword :

If you haven’t realized it yet, the sword Jaime is wielding is the Widow’s Wail. You can see the red jewel and the golden bands around the hilt of the sword, which is pretty much enough we need to see to recognize it. If you don’t remember, let us remind you. The sword was last seen in Season 4, in the Purple wedding episode, where Joffrey Baratheon, the then king, dies. He uses it to chop off the book Tyrion gifts him, and the sword hasn’t made an appearance since then.

This sword appearing might mean another nod at the Valonqar theory about Cersei’s death, where “little brother” will kill her. The sword is called Widow’s Wail. We can’t trust the names to not be painfully obvious since the whole Hodor thing happened now, can we?

What do you think? Does the sword returning mean anything, or do you think it’s just instance of fans going into overdrive? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

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!
