Game of Thrones is on the cusp of its greatest battle ever, in the upcoming episode, which will be the third episode of the season and it leaves just 3 more episodes before the series gets over. In the meantime, Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, has been out at Times Square in New York promoting her charity, dressed as Jon Snow, and promising a chance to watch the series finale with her. Read on!
Now, as a Game of Thrones fan, you must be aware of Omaze, which is a platform that teams up often with Game of Thrones stars for charitable with personalised rewards. The latest is a chance to meet Emilia Clarke and support her charity SameYou, that works towards raising awareness for brain aneurysms and strokes. Emilia took the creative route to promote this. Check it out, below:
It looks like Emilia could make a compelling Jon Snow, almost as well as she did Daenerys. Her portrayal of Kit Harington‘s grumpy boy in black is brilliant, and it’s even funnier that she is doing it with an unsuspecting crowd at Times Square, most of which seem to have never watched Game of Thrones. Emilia also manages to sneak in a joke about her former on-screen partner, Jason Momoa.
Well, you can head over to Omaze and donate to her charity to become eligible to win the prize, here. Are you going to? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
Game of Thrones ended over a year ago, and the fans miss the show terribly. Though there are prequel series in works, the original characters will always hold a special place in everyone’s hearts. One of them being Jon Snow, who is currently trending on Twitter, and fans are baffled as to why.
Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, is easily one of the most famous and lovable characters on the show Game of Thrones. All was well on Twitter until Netflix caused a stir with the following tweet:
Please don’t ask us why Jon Snow is trending. We know nothing.

The fans were bewildered at the tweet. Everyone was guessing the cause and no one could figure out why. Some even called out Netflix for playing with their emotions! It seems like fans haven’t got enough of Jon Snow yet.

Most of the fans linked it to the recent release of the trailer of Criminals season 2, starring Kit Harington. Kit Harington played Jon Snow for all the 8 seasons of Game of Thrones. Criminals season 2 also stars Kunal Nayyar, Sophie Okonedo and Sharon Horgan. Kit shines in his role as a convicted real estate agent.
Kit Harington starts his episode of Criminal S2 with a 6-minute, one-shot monologue looking straight down the camera. Here’s some of it. He clearly knows *some* things. pic.twitter.com/TmJ0HurLAE

While others linked the trend to seasonal change. A pun directed at a famous line from the show. Something that only a Stark would say,
“Winter is coming.”
Jon Snow trending because Winter is coming 😂😂😂😂 #JonSnow pic.twitter.com/bUDsyBsn43

Even though it seems confusing, fans are surely having fun toying around with ideas. Whatever may the reason be, Jon Snow trending after such a long time reflects the popularity of the character and show.
What are your thoughts about the ruckus? Let us know in the comments below.
Game of Thrones finished its glorious run last year. Not only was it perhaps the most-watched show of all time, but it was also the most closely followed series of all time. Fans were absolutely obsessed with it and you can still find various fan theories still floating around in the aisles of Reddit world. However, when you have such passionate fans it comes with a cost. While the show had set an immensely high standard for itself, all hell broke loose when the fans spotted a Starbucks coffee cup in one episode, followed by two water bottles. Now the same mistake has been repeated and fans aren’t letting this one go as well!
As per the report from Metro, Emma Watson starrer Little Women had its own Game of Thrones moment. Apparently fans spotted a water bottle in one scene in a film set in 1860s. This led to an onslaught yet again from the fans and they were quick to point out the mistake in their own style.
This immediately brought back the memories of a coffee cup incident in one Game of Thrones episodes. The reactions then were so ferocious that the producer Bernie Caulfield had to apologize.
She had then said:
“We’re sorry! Prop people and decorators are so, you know, so on it 1,000 percent. If that’s the worst thing they’re finding, then we’re in good shape.”
Stars too took it in their strides and made jokes on it in their numerous TV appearances. Liam Cunnigham and Sophie Turner had then jokingly blamed Emilia Clarke for the gaffe.
Cunnigham had said:
“These things happen, it’s a big job, people run in, and Emilia (Clarke) probably drinks too much coffee.”
Clarke too had her share of fun and blamed Jason Mamoa for the incident! She had then posted a photo on Instagram and wrote:
“Did I just stumble upon the truth here?! The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea… oh and this ain’t a spoiler just a lost wanderer coming home for a mid-filming cuppa.”
Any which way it’s not ideal for any film or show to have such incidents but whether we like it or not, these things happen. Well, at least we get our laughs out of it!
What are your reactions to the latest water bottle sighter? Have you seen the Little Women? Did you spot it as well?

Game of Thrones Season 8 was the world received season of the show. The fans are still complaining about the bad writing, while others are busy criticizing those that are hating on the final season. Among all the noise, one fan got creative and made a hilarious deepfake video of Jon Snow apologising for Season 8. Read on!
YouTuber Eating Things put out the video, and it has quickly gone viral, getting nearly 2 million views at the time of writing this article. The video shows the funeral speech that Jon Snow gives after the Battle of Winterfell, but deepfaked into an apology for Season 8. Check it out:
The fans have been waiting for such an apology from the showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, but we don’t think that’s happening anytime soon. For now, this should do.
