Game of Thrones' weapon master says Arya Stark is getting a “showstopper” weapon from Gendry this season

Arya Stark finally reunited with her old buddy Gendry in the premiere episode of Game of Thrones Season 8. While the heartwarming reunion did show us the ‘friendly’ and ‘flirty’ part of the faceless assassin, it also revealed that she is undergoing a major weapon upgrade in the coming episode. Let’s dive in.

Well, you might be familiar with the weapons (Needle and Valyrian Steel dagger) that Arya Stark carries with her and especially the last the season showed us what she is capable of doing with them. But, the premiere episode has confirmed that she is getting a brand new weapon from her pal Gendry. The scene began with Sandor Clegane coming to ask Gendry for the new weapon he had forged for him. After Gendry got the Hound his new Dragonglass axe, Arya checked in and we saw their much-expected reunion.

We only got to see some small talks between Arya and Sandor and memorable remarks like “First, I robbed you“, Gendry and Arya had a much longer conversation that was centred on the weapon blueprint she had brought with her. Upon taking a closer look, you can infer that the new weapon looks like a spear with two pointy ends. While one extreme end of the weapon will clearly have a dragonglass tip,  as the blueprint showed us, I have no clues on what purpose the other end will serve.

Yet, Vanity Fair did manage to get some insights of the same in their latest conversation with Tommy Dunne – the weapons master for Game of Thrones. Dunne in VF’s podcast “Still Watching” revealed that;

“There is one creation in Season 8 that is absolutely phenomenal. It’ll be a showstopper. That was great to finish. It was great to make, great to design in that it was able to be reverse-engineered and made into two different items.”

The description that Dunne gives here exactly matches the design we see on the blueprint, thus confirming that Arya’s new weapon will not only be splendid but that she will do some hardcore action on the wights during the Battle of Winterfell. Yet, we don’t have any clue on what the other end of the weapon will be composed of? Perhaps it can be Arya’ dagger or a torch that can be ignited to kill wights.

What were your thoughts on Arya Stark’s reunion with Gendry and how effective will be her new weapon against the White Walkers? Tell us in the comments.

You know the drill, there will be spoilers. The premiere of the final episode of Game of Thrones saw several reunions. Most made us happy. Jon and Arya meeting was #adorbs. The last time they met, Ned Stark was still alive. We’re allowed to be flippant about that now, it was eight years ago. The “reunion” that did raise some eyebrows was the one between Cersei Lannister and Euron Greyjoy.

For those of you who haven’t watched the episode yet, Euron and Cersei got down and dirty.

After Euron shows up at King’s Landing with the mercenaries of the Golden Company at his back, along with their troops and horses (alas, no elephants), Euron, the cad that he is, hints at wanting something more from Cersei. Sex, to be precise.

Cersei isn’t initially too sold on the idea. However, after hearing Euron’s veiled threats of reneging on his deal, Cersei has a change of heart mind.

She wasn’t the only one with misgivings. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, actress Lena Headey who plays Cersei Lannister said that she too had hesitations about that happening between the two.

“I kept saying, ‘She wouldn’t, she wouldn’t, that she would keep fighting,” Headey told EW. “But [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] obviously know what they’re doing and were adamant Cersei would do what she had to do.”

Pilou Asbaek, who plays Euron Greyjoy said that the topic was pondered upon quite a lot before it made the cut.

“We had a lot of discussions,” Pilou said. “Would it be out of character for her to be with Greyjoy for power? We discussed it so much that we almost ended up going, ‘Maybe it’s too much.’ Then we decided to try it out and see if it works. Sometimes you have to show different sides of a character. You have to surprise yourself as an actor but you also have to surprise yourself as a character.”

Considering that Cersei has always been above all, a survivalist, it stands to reason that she’d sleep with somebody purely for power, even if that somebody was as unhinged as Euron.

What did you think about Cersei’s decision? Let us know in the comments!

Jon Snow may have moved on from the memories of Ygritte and fallen for the Dragon Queen, but Kit Harington sure hasn’t. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the British star confessed that some of his most favourite scenes to shoot in Game of Thrones were the ones involving wife Rose Leslie.

Harington has had several stunning and crucial scenes to his credit with Jon Snow’s increasing importance in the show. But the initial scenes of Jon and Ygritte were also when the romance between him and Leslie was blooming, so naturally, those are extra special. Harington elaborates,

“I’ll always be proud of seasons 2 and 3 with [his wife Rose Leslie as Ygritte]. While I think there were storylines people enjoyed more, just when Rose and I are walking through the wilderness — those are some of the favourite shots I’ve done.”

kit-harington-talks-favourite-got-scenes-and-crazy-season-8-schedules-1-4076898

But that’s not to say he isn’t equally proud of his other achievements, especially the superbly shot Battle of the Bastards. In his own words,

“I’m very proud of ‘The Battle of the Bastards,” the one [long continuous take of Jon Snow fighting] through the horses.

It is a stunning shot indeed. But Harington had also directly contributed to the conceptualization of one crucial feature in that sequence – the stampede scene. The writers had incorporated Harington’s real-life phobia of being trampled by many people in the script to create the extraordinary emotional impact that scene delivers.

kit-harington-talks-favourite-got-scenes-and-crazy-season-8-schedules-3-3758419

But Season 8 is a different ball game altogether. The amount of care, precision, and time put into each and every scene have been unprecedented, says Harington.

“Every episode is big … it’s just more exhausting than it’s ever been. It’s relentless. What would have been a one-day shoot two years ago is now a five-day shoot. We’ve had walk-and-talks that would have been a half day end up being 3 or 4 days. That’s the scale of it. They really want to get it right. They want to shoot [every scene] every single way so they have options [during editing].”

That sure explains the long wait. But all this just makes us more excited for Sunday, April 14. What’s your favourite scene/s in Game of Thrones? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones is one of the most popular franchises in the world right now, and it has been, for a while now. Now, any modern popular franchise, especially one of a TV show, simply cannot escape memes. Game of Thrones memes are popular across all social media platforms (except maybe LinkedIn, but honestly, we haven’t checked.) Gendry rowing memes are a large subset of Game of Thrones memes, and the subject was also one of the longest lasting one. Now, actor Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry, has said that he thinks they’re all his fault. Read on!

Joe Dempsie recently had an interview with Entertainment Weekly, as a part of their intense promotion for Game of Thrones Season 8. For those who might have skimmed through the show, Gendry is Robert Baratheon‘s bastard son, who was sent rowing by Ser Davos Seaworth for his own safety from Melisandre, back in Season 3. He only returned from his ‘cruise’ in Season 7. In the meantime, as his fate hung in the balance, Gendry was the subject of a lot of memes, kicked off by this tweet by Joe:

Still rowin’…#GoT

— Joe Dempsie (@joedempsie) June 18, 2014

About the memes that spun off from this tweet, Joe said with a laugh:

“It became my daily life. There was no escaping it.”

Gendry….still rowin’ pic.twitter.com/lInqgZpBag

— Lena Headey Gang (@lenaheadeygang) May 12, 2015

Joe said he wasn’t even sure of returning until he got the call:

“It almost felt like a new job because the influence and the impact of the show changed so much over those years. It was like getting a call out of the blue, saying, ‘Hey, so do you fancy stepping into the biggest TV show on the planet?’”

Still Rowin’ @joedempsie @GameOfThrones #GoT #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/QEsPtvd8f3

— Catrina @ SWCC 🇨🇱 (@ohcatrina) June 20, 2014

The memes were also sort of acknowledged by the show, with a meta joke about it, coming from Ser Davos:

Joe also talked about preparing for his return with a new sledgehammer as his weapon of choice:

“I spent probably three months like a psychopath in my garden, swinging a sledgehammer around. So I was the strongest I’ve ever been, trying to make a foam hammer look heavy.” 

Well, we surely are looking forward to where Gendry heads in Season 8, especially with his teeny tiny claim to the Iron Throne. What about you? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Turns out The Simpsons predicted the fate of King's Landing two years ago

Published

By

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5, “The Bells” embraced a big character arc for one of its biggest characters. Daenerys Targaryen became the Mad Queen, and unleashed fury on Cersei Lannister and her capital, King’s Landing. It turns out that The Simpsons actually predicted it a while ago. Read on.

In “The Bells” we saw Daenerys spare no mercy for the arguably morally dirty city of King’s Landing. Even after the city surrendered, and the bells were rung, Daenerys went on a rampage to burn them all. Turns out, the loved animated sitcom, which is also famous for predicting just all kinds of events, also predicted the fate of King’s Landing, back in 2017.

In the first episode of The Simpsons Season 29, which was titled The Serfsons, we saw The Simpsons set in an alternate reality that was pretty much a parody of Game of Thrones. There are White Walkers, magic necklaces, and of course, dragons. The trope is that in the end, we see the Simpsons look, as the dragon burns the city to the ground. Very much like Drogon razed King’s Landing to the ground.

Check out the clips in this video montage:

The teaser trailer to Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is finally here! As we reported earlier, the teaser trailer was supposed to drop within the next two weeks, and hence the prediction checks out. The full trailer might be here right before Christmas, but for the moment let’s enjoy the epicness of the teaser trailer launched by HBO Max earlier this week.

The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch!

It’s amazing how fans are so excited about the upcoming prequel, despite being divided over the controversial ending to Game of Thrones. Hopefully, House of The Dragon will live up to the hype, and fans will get to watch an amazing series that’ll be even better than the original one.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving rather swiftly, and we might see George R. R. Martin’s prediction about the series’ release come to fruition. Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew were spotted in Aldershot, and locals are leaking out quite a few details about the set.

In the most recent leaks from the set in Aldershot, fans have spotted a carriage bearing the sigil of House Strong. House Strong was already confirmed by HBO earlier last month when HBO released information about new additions to the cast, which included Ser Harwin ‘Breakbones’ Strong played by Ryan Corr, Larys Strong played by Matthew Needham, and Lord Lyonel Strong played by Gavin Spokes.

A few months ago, Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco filed a federal lawsuit against Marilyn Manson accusing him of rape and other acts of sexual violence. Marilyn Manson’s lawyers have denied all claims and said all the stories were forged by the actress. Recently, the court has denied the dismissal request put forward by Manson’s lawyers, meaning Bianco can move forward with the case.

Judge Fernando L. Aenlle-Rocha of the U.S. District Court of California denied Manson’s attempt to have Bianco’s claims dismissed based on the statute of limitations, court documents revealed Thursday. Manson has 14 days to respond to each of Bianco’s claims.

esme-bianco-8305862

A reasonable jury could find that the effects of Warner’s alleged unconscionable acts, including the perceived threat to Plaintiff’s safety, immigration status, and career, persisted years after her last contact with Warner,” Aenlle-Rocha wrote in his court address.

Bianco first came forward on Feb. 10, as more than a dozen other women also made allegations against Manson. The lawsuit lays out Bianco’s allegations in similarly shocking detail. She alleges that Manson — whose legal name is Brian Warner — raped her in May 2011. Bianco also alleges that he repeatedly used drugs, force and threats to coerce her into other sexual acts. She accuses him of spanking, biting, cutting and whipping her without her consent during sex acts.

New House of The Dragon leaks might be showing the first look at Daemon Targaryen’s first wife

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving fast with its production, and we can expect a spring release in 2022. Most of the main characters have been cast, and HBO has officially declared who’s playing who in the much-awaited prequel. With set pictures leaking quite often on the internet, the fans are getting a glimpse of more cast members in action. Recently, another rather unknown member of the House of The Dragon cast came into the limelight, via a leaked picture from the Aldershot set posted by Portal House of The Dragon Brasil.

One of the most common theories about the cast member in question is that she’s playing Prince Daemon Targaryen’s first wife Rhea Royce. This is how the character’s wiki describes her:

In 97 AC, Queen Alysanne Targaryen wed her grandson, Prince Daemon Targaryen, to Lady Rhea Royce, the heir to Runestone. Although the marriage was a fine, rich match, the marriage was not a success. Daemon found the Vale of Arryn little to his liking and grew bored. He soon developed a dislike for his wife, holding no love or affection toward Rhea, referring to her as his bronze bitch, a mocking reference to the ancient armour of the Royces. Rhea likewise had no love for Daemon, and they were soon estranged.”

Well, the armour certainly checks out, but other details about the character are currently under wraps. Who do you think the character from the recent leaks is? Tell us in the comments below!

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans. Recently, a few more pictures from the production set were leaked. And we finally have a first look at Daemon Targaryen’s fabled Valyrian Steel sword the Dark Sister.

In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his belt buckle while carrying his sword behind him.

Another image shows him in what looks like a melancholy state, kneeling in the sea with his shoulders hunched and his head bowed down as his sword stands upright in the sand.

The last of the photos show him lying on the sand, while Dark Sister is still stuck in the sand while Matt talks to a crew member.

This might be a soul-searching moment for Daemon Targaryen, since no other cast members are seen around him as he takes a stroll along the beach.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Fans have been wondering for a while about some of the key characters that have not been announced yet. Recently, a few more pictures were leaked, depicting a scene being filmed involving a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon.

leanor-rhaenyra-7596856

We already know actress Milly Alcock is playing the younger version of Rhaenyra, as it was announced officially a while ago. However, this is the first time anyone has ever seen Laenor Velaryon in action, played by actor Theo Nate. Nate is a budding actor whose acting credits include Time (2021), a show starring Sean Bean.

laenor-rhaenyra-1-714x1024-6645642

Rhaenyra and Laenor were married at a young age, so the leaked pictures that have been circulating on the internet must be from around that time. Also, Laenor dies young in the books, after the couple have their children. So maybe Rhaenyra is seeing him off for the last time at the beach?

It has recently been confirmed that the production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has returned to Cornwall. Several photos of the shoot were leaked recently, which included what looked like a huge huge battle sequence as well as the first look at Rhaenys Velaryon, Laenor Velaryon and a young Rhaenyra Targaryen. Fans of the fantasy epic might be psyched, but the neighbours to the show’s production site not so much.

A holiday park in Cornwall has complained that nearby filming for the Game Of Thrones spin-off House Of The Dragon has driven away their guests. The owners of The Meadow Holiday Park, who are neighbours to the show’s production site, have now said that they have lost business on account of the noise from production, which took place between 5 am and 10 pm.

Every time the National Trust rent out their car park for a lot of money we get disturbed,” owner Krys Humphrey explained to Cornwall Live. “The car park is quite big and they could easily put the generators and lorries on the far side of the car park which would make things better.”

more-leaks-from-the-set-of-house-of-the-dragon-hint-at-a-major-battle-scene-being-filmed-at-cornwall-7-1812674

She continued, “They are located next to the riverbank which is just a couple of metres from our holiday homes. We have asked them to move the generators but they say they can’t. The National Trust won’t reply to anything.”

Humphrey added that the House of The Dragon production team has offered to distribute gift baskets to those impacted by the noise, but that this will not suffice. “We have been told that it could continue for another three weeks,” she said, “I have some guests booked in who have a baby and others with a lady who is 94. It’s not fair.”

Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew have returned to Holywell beach, but this time, the scale of production seems to be much more massive, covering a lot more ground than previous leaks, as reported by Cornwall Live.

The large scale filming and the shots that were being prepared looked as if they were preparing for a big battle sequence. Two boats followed by lines of smoke set the backdrop at Holywell Bay near Newquay. Well, where there’s smoke there’s fire, and fans can hope it is from the dragons we are so excited to see in the Game of Thrones prequel.

Marshals wearing high-vis jackets and facemasks lead cast members across the desert-like sands at Holywell Bay. Not much can be seen considering the distance, but the actors wearing turbans and yellowish attire seem to be from Dorne. There are also some Targaryen soldiers on the set, possibly from Rhaenyra’s section.

An unidentified Targaryen soldier was also seen gazing at the sea in a scene being shot on what appears to be a hilltop, possibly trying to encompass the scale of destruction of the battle. There are also some props resembling shipwrecks, that also point towards the theory.
