Given the absolutely shocking and some might say disappointing note (I would agree, and I’ll fight you on this) that the third episode ended on, it was but obvious that it would soon become the talk of the town. It has, and how.
Surpassing all expectations and breaking records, Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, The Long Night has become the most tweeted about episode in television history. Fans seem to have scurried out of every crack and crevice and Twitter has exploded, with the episode being tweeted over 7.8 million times, as of 29th April.
This episode has set a number of records. We don’t know how much of it you actually saw given the
lack of lighting the team opted for, but this was the longest Game of Thrones episode till date. It is also the second most-watched episode in Thrones history while also being one of the lowest ranked episodes of the series.
Given that the battle between the dead and the living has been long in the making, these figures really don’t come as much of a surprise. Twitter seems to have hopped on the Game of Thrones bandwagon because they’ve added a new hashtag emoji of a weirwood tree that shows up when you tweet #NotToday or #TheLongNight.
The battle with the Night King might be out of the way but the one with Cersei looms large. What do you think will happen in the final battle?
The year 2020 was a Red Wedding for humanity. In times like these, we often wish for a superhero to have existed in reality. Even though we don’t have superheroes in real life, we do have superhero movies to help us get through tough times. What’s better than seeing our favourite stars donning the cape? Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal joins the superhero squad of We Can Be Heroes.
The Spy Kids filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is back with another action-hero-family genre movie. Pedro Pascal, Boyd Holbrook and Christian Slater are members of a superhero squad called Heroics. Priyanka Chopra is the Director of the Heroics. The movie begins with the group kidnapped and their kids left to try to save them. The film will also have a cameo by Sharkboy and Lavagirl, superhero avatars created by Rodriguez in 2005.
Rodriguez has often expressed the desire to work with Pedro. The new movie will follow the same light-hearted comedy and sci-fi fantasy theme as his earlier works. Looks like the year 2020 is finally ending with a good note. (So many Game of Thrones stars appearing on other platforms, and of course, Biden’s win!).

Game of Thrones TV series ended more than a year ago. The final season of the show divided the fan-base into two. One loved it, the other wanted something more. Hardcore fans are still waiting for the next book of the series, The Winds of Winter.
Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin recently updated fans about his progress on the upcoming book. He noticed a sudden spike in the number of viewers on his blog Not a Blog, and joked, “Sometimes I do get the feeling that most of you reading my posts here care more about what is happening in Westeros than what is happening in the United States.”
He further wrote, “So let me assure you that, when not sweating out election returns or brooding over other real-world problems, I have continued to work on THE WINDS OF WINTER.
No, sorry, still not done, but I do inch closer. It is a big book. I try not to dwell on that too much. I write a chapter at a time, a page-at-a-time, a sentence at-a-time, a word at-a-time. It is the only way. And sometimes I rewrite.”
Martin explained he has been spending a lot of time with the Lannisters. Cersei and Tyrion in particular. He has also visited Dorne and the Old Town in his book. He is currently writing new chapters, revisiting and tweaking old ones as well.
George wrote, “None of this is even remotely new. It is how the first five books were written.”
The Game of Thrones author is slowly picking up speed. He once gave an example of how the books will be different from the show. Are you excited for The Winds of Winter? Talk to us in the comments below!
Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. The popularity and success of the show have left fans worldwide wanting for more. HBO has already teased the fans with the announcement of Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. Moreover, the television network has added to the hype by adding Paddy Considine to the show’s cast as King Viserys. Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is really happy with the show’s progress. Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog :
“Well, aside from COVID-19 slowing everything down, we are making great progress on the HBO prequel HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Ryan and Miguel are in London, casting has begun, it is all looking very exciting.”
He also talked about his other projects, “I wish I could say that things are also going great on all the other television and film projects I am involved with, either as a producer or as the author of the original source material (i.e. novels and short stories). I can’t. Very little shooting is taking place, and almost nothing is being greenlit. Of course, development continues… but there’s a reason they call it “development hell.” Sigh.
So that’s where all that stands. Or at least, that’s as much as I am allowed to tell you right now. Hang in there, friends.”
The great strides in the progress of the much-awaited series are welcome news for all the fans worldwide. Are you excited for the House of The Dragon? Tell us in the comments below!
