Issac Hempstead says Bran Stark’s visions in the coming episodes will be extraordinary

Why is the Tower of Joy so important in Game of Thrones and the things you need to know about it

With every new episode of Season six of Game of Thrones, our anticipation levels have doubled because there is so little that’s revealed as of now but that is just enough to keep us waiting and hooked. Specially, the Tower of Joy scene in episode 3 was the much talked about scene before it was even telecast but it was a bit of a disappointment when the scene was showed for such a brief duration.

Still, Isaac Hempstead Wright, the actor who plays Bran Stark on the show says that the tower of Joy scene will not be what everyone is expecting. Now what everyone is expecting is that R+L= J, the much awaited theory.

While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter Isaac said, “Every single vision, you’re learning something new, and you’re seeing a real bombshell, That’s what we’ll see in the next few episodes. There are no visions where we’re like, ‘Oh, well, cool, we kind of already knew that anyway.’ Every time it’s like, ‘Oh, wow! That’s extraordinary!’ There are a couple of visions coming up that I’m really excited to see.”

Isaac also spoke about what he thought of Bran’s father, Ned and how it changed after seeing him win a fight in a dirty manner in the Tower of Joy and said that, “Yeah, as far as he’s known, his father has been nothing but completely honorable and kind and generous and a good man. So Bran’s watching this fight, expecting it to go one way, with his father coming in to save the day. And there’s this great line where Bran says something like: “But father wins! I’ve heard the story a thousand times!” And clearly someone’s been lying. Bran sees that it was a dirty backstabbing, and that’s quite shocking for Bran. It’s a totally different side to his father that he hadn’t quite been exposed to before. All the sudden, here he is. His hero isn’t all that he’s quite cracked up to be, necessarily. It also raises some questions. There’s no arguing the fact that Ned was a good man, so whatever forced him to fight in that dishonorable way clearly must have been something quite enormous. It raises the question of why he did that, and what does it mean for the rest of us?”

Episode four must come soon and only then we will know.

It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

no game of thrones sequel says hbo executive

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
