Jon Snow's Direwolf, Ghost returned in the latest episode but fans weren't thrilled

Published

on

The second episode of season 8 saw the return of the good boy, the good boy being the best thing that has ever happened to Jon Snow AKA his direwolf Ghost. We last saw the direwolf in season 6 during Jon Snow’s resurrection scene. This was when he curled up, patiently waiting for Jon to stop being dead. ‘Twas a scene where a lot of boxes of tissue were passed around.

So there was rightfully a fair amount of anticipation building up to the moment when Jon and Ghost would reunite. Calling that scene in episode two a reunion would be a bit of a stretch. Fans are understandably pissed because they feel they’ve been done dirty. Which they have. I mean, look at this.

i didn’t even notice Ghost tbh. i was waiting for him to appear since season 7 and i didn’t even notice the damn wolf. they didn’t even have the decency to give him a proper scene. if he gets killed on episode 3 to “save budget” istg 🔪🔪🔪 #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/uThQvcQA9f

There was no build up to this scene, NOTHING. He’s just there, like an afterthought. While this scene sorely disappointed, fan reactions didn’t.

The direwolf was supposed to have some screen time back in season 7 but he finally didn’t make the cut. Turns out, CGI direwolfs are quite expensive, and with dragons hogging the limelight and the budget, there just wasn’t room for more.

So how annoyed were you with this scene in episode two? Don’t hold back, let us know how you really feel in the comments down below!

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 was all kinds of shocker, but the biggest has to be Arya putting an end to the Night King. None of us saw that coming, right? Well, a few did. Redditors pulser1977 and u/gride9000 had predicted way back in August 2017 that Arya would kill the Night King, that too with the same Valyrian Steel catspaw dagger. That’s some serious Greenseer abilities right there, we’d say! Read on.

Pulser1977 made a case for Arya’s dagger being ‘Lightbringer’, the famed flaming sword of Azor Ahai. u/gride9000, on the other hand, thought the dagger held parts of the Dragonglass knife that the Children of the Forest used to create the Night King. Both surmised that as the Three-Eyed Raven, Bran had a specific reason to give that dagger to Arya and not anyone else. Ergo, Arya is going to be the one to kill the Night King.

At that time, most of the discussion about Azor Ahai, both in the show and among fans, had been centred around either Jon or Daenerys. Both of them have Targaryen heritage and fulfil many other requirements of the prophecy as well. But both these Redditors noticed something that the show was hinting at but the fans were yet to catch on – the catspaw dagger was being given an unlikely amount of importance.

Pulser1977 states that “the [Lightbringer] prophecy speaks of a sword “made of living fire”, but prophecies should never be taken literally. The hilt is made of dragonbone, which could account for the “fire” aspect. And the hilt also contains a ruby. Now, Melisandre’s choker also has a ruby, so it seems that rubies are associated with the Lord of Light.”

(Spoilers Main) A theory about the catspaw dagger from asoiaf

On the 21st of the same month, redditor u/gride9000 pointed out that the dagger has been slowly but surely built up as a “hero prop” right since Season 1. It was sent to eliminate bran, then it ended up in King’s Landing. Then Petyr Baelish gave it to Bran, and Bran to Arya.

“Why does it deserve the screen time in a season that can only be described as quickly paced? … This knife has history. Why is it so important compared to other Valarien blades on the show? We see Bran give away the knife. He knows what’s going to happen. What will Arya do with it?”

[MAIN SPOILERS] How the night king will die. from gameofthrones

The dagger having that ancient Dragonglass, or the picture on Sam’s book being the same weapon might seem like far-fetched ideas in hindsight. But both got the crux of the matter right – and stood vindicated when at wee end of ‘The Long Night’ Arya plunged the dagger into the Night King’s heart.

Looks like we got a couple of Three-Eyed Ravens there, folks!

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 3 aired this Sunday. Titled “The Long Night“, this episode debuted to shaky ratings, and mixed opinions from fans. Fans had some pretty specific complaints about the episode, but the biggest one of the bunch was that it was just too dark in terms of lighting, for them to be able to watch it properly.

As soon as the episode started, fans started posting on social media about how it was too dark. We see the episode kick off in Winterfell and then pan out to the exteriors of the castle, where the Night King is arriving with his army, and his own storm. Of course, everything was expected to be pitch dark because of this, but for some fans, their limited feature screens could have ruined the experience:

However, cinematographer for the show, Fabian Wagner mentioned that the episode was exactly as intended by the showrunners and the director. He even argued that he knew it wasn’t too dark because he shot it. He also said that it is possible that HBO’s compression (post-processing and content quality) might have caused the episode to appear darker than it was.

What do you guys think? Was the episode too dark? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, The Long Night was a really long episode and was a gift that kept on giving. This episode confirmed what many fans had been saying since a long time; Arya Stark is the baddest character of them all. After successfully skewering the Night King and his frosty lieutenants and wights by extension, Arya seems to have closed down one long-lasting storyline of the series in one fell swoop, or rather, jab.

Shocked? The Red Priestess might just have prophesied this back in season three. Oh yeah, Melisandre came back by the way, for one last hurrah.  In season three when Melisandre runs into Arya, Gendry and the Brotherhood Without Banners, she tells Arya, “I see a darkness in you, and in that darkness, eyes staring back at me: brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes. Eyes you’ll shut forever. We will meet again.”

Arya’s shut a lot of eyes since then, and as the episode showed, the blue eyes that Melisandre was talking about belonged to the Night King.

Melisandre and Arya have a final encounter in the latest episode after Beric sacrifices himself to save Arya, which Melisandre would have us believe was Beric’s purpose all along. Melisandre drops a gentle reminder which is a throwback to Syrio Forel’s favourite quip; “What do we say to the god of death? Not today.” In this context, one can presume that the “god of death” is the Night King. Arya then sprints off to shish kebab him.

All of this seems to point to another prophecy; that of Azor Ahai or the Prince Who Was Promised. According to the prophecy, a saviour who is the hero Azor Ahai reincarnated will “lead the people against darkness” with the flaming sword Lightbringer. If we were to get literal, parts of the prophecy don’t add up to Arya being Azor Ahai, but past events would show that it’s the very nature of prophecies; they don’t pan out as precisely as they were foretold.

Melisandre initially thought Stannis Baratheon was the Prince That Was Promised (lol, what?) before moving on to Jon and Daenerys. But now, Arya seems like the most likely candidate.

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.

⚠| Quem será que são esses personagens? 👀#HouseOfTheDragon pic.twitter.com/IjhawvIPfQ

— Portal House of the Dragon Brasil (@PortalHOTD) September 28, 2021

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.
