Pilou Asbæk says Euron Greyjoy will make Ramsay Bolton look like a little kid and other news from season 7

Euron Greyjoy might be the next big villain on Game of Thrones according to this theory

Game of Thrones Season 7 is getting closer, with less than a month left to the premiere, set for July 16th. The hype around the new season is at an all time high, and it seems like everybody around is helping in driving it up even more. We had recently reported about how a bit in Empire Magazine’s Game of Thrones spread revealed Jon Snow‘s birth name. We now have the full story, and it has revealed quite a bit of new information. Read on!

You can read the full story, below :

Now let’s talk about the important bits. First off, there is a very subtle bit of information which has been slipped in, and it has to do with none other than The Hound. The in-studio scenes needed the cast to be in winter-wear in a heavily lot environment, and thus a really hot one. Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth) revealed that some of the cast members got vests with cold water being circulated within, to keep them cool, and that Rory McCann (The Hound), really appreciated that. Cunningham said :

“That poor man wears the full f**king armour and has to fight. I said, ‘You need to get that vest on.’ He said, ‘What f**king vest?!’ And when he put it on and plugged it in, he almost started weeping.”

Now, the idea of the Hound in a full armour isn’t obvious from where his story left off last season, so we’ll take this opportunity to hope that we might be seeing Cleganebowl sometime soon! He is also quoted saying later that he’s sore from his Season 7 run, which means that we’ll be seeing the Hound in action this season!

Next up, is the psycho of the season : Euron Greyjoy! We did get rid of a bad guy by the name of Ramsay Bolton, last season, but it seems as though we got another one, and one that will apparently make Ramsay look like “a little kid,” said Pilou Asbæk, who plays Euron. He explained :

“The psychos I’ve encountered have so many different sides to them. So each scene I’ve done with Euron, I pick a new thing I wanna show. ‘This scene I want to be charming.’ ‘This scene I wanna be a molester.’ ‘This scene I wanna kill someone.’ After this season, Ramsay’s gonna look like a little kid.”

Ouch.

We had recently reported about how a picture that John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) recently uploaded with Kit Harington, could be hinting at a Jon-Sam reunion, but Empire says that’s not happening. John Bradley said :

“Jon and Samwell have said goodbye a lot. But you felt there was a finality to that last goodbye between them. This season I’ve never felt more cast into the wilderness, really.”

That sinks our ship!

Another important detail was confirmed here. Jim Broadbent, who was cast in Season 7 to play a maester, as we had reported, has been confirmed to play Archmaester Marwyn. There had been some speculations, but this is the closest to an official confirmation that we have gotten, yet.

Although we probably won’t see a Jon-Sam reunion, it looks like we might get a new bromance this time around. Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne) and Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) seem to be friends now! Anderson even sang a little, saying, “Podrick and G-Dubs, friends forever,” pitching their own spin-off idea. They apparently also tackle spoiler hunters by telling them there will be purple unicorns on the show! Hilarious!

Among other little bits, is an emphasis on the fact that a lot is riding on Bran Stark‘s shoulders, the rift between Cersei and Jaime, and Sansa‘s unrest with Jon getting all the northern glory. Oh, and that Ed Sheeran will be the start cameo. That’s about it! What do you think about the whole spread? Got any new speculations? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

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!
