The need of the hour is to come together while staying apart. Social distancing and self-isolation are key weapons in defeating COVID-19. But it’s equally important to realize that many members of our society are at high risk. Some are fighting the illness as healthcare workers; whereas others are hit badly by the economic aspect of the shutdowns. So, unless we come forward as a community to help them provide the basic needs of food and shelter, there’s no possibility of a victory here. Our favorite quarantine couple, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and her musician husband, Joe Jonas showed a nice gesture by donating hot meals to the East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital.
Fueling the Fearless, a non-profit group, runs this campaign. They’re feeding the hospital workers at the front lines of COVID-19 while helping locally-owned restaurants to stay open and running. Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas, Joe’s manager Phil McIntyre and his wife, Shonda joined hands with the non-profit group to donate 100 hot meals for the hospital staff. Fueling the Fearless shared a few photos on Instagram on Monday to thank the two couples.
The pictures showed the staff from one of the hospitals they delivered to, plates of food, and cartons loaded for delivery. “A BIG THANK YOU to @joejonas @sophiet @philymack @shondamcintyre for donating 100 meals to East LA Doctors Hospital. This hospital is in the heart of downtown LA and serves a vastly underprivileged community with limited resources and support”; the caption read. Aliki’s Greek Taverna, an eatery in Los Angeles, perhaps prepared the meals; as the post thanked them too. “Through these types of fully paid sponsorships @alikisgreektaverna and her donors bring a moment of relief to a most grateful staff. One hot meal lets them know we are all in this together”; it said.
That’s a wonderful thing that Sophie and Joe did, and we hope it inspires others too. Another GoT star Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) recently revealed his step-father’s company is providing PPE to health workers. While we are certain that a lot of people are chipping in with their help all around the world to protect their community and health workers; and not everybody needs to get social media attention for it. But this sometimes brings in other willing people to help in their own ways.
This helpful act is another good thing in the list of activities that the couple has engaged in lately. Whether it’s the message of social distancing or telling us their quarantine routine, Sophie and Joe have been right on top of this lockdown season. We also saw their TikTok video a few days ago where they answered adorable questions about their relationship. Well, it seems like we can’t get enough of these two lovely people.

Game of Thrones was the biggest TV show of the 21st century. It set the bar for quality TV shows really high. The fantastical epic became a household name and caused a gigantic rise in HBO’s viewership. The series won tons of awards during its run, making the show a popular franchise. However, HBO has suffered a steep decline in ratings and viewings since the conclusion of Game of Thrones.
The 50 top-rated networks of 2020 by adults in the 18-49 age range shows that HBO suffered a 52 per cent drop. Linear viewing (i.e. watching shows at scheduled times) on the US premium network saw an overall demographic drop of 38 percent. Other US networks were also hit with declines as reported by Variety. However, cable news networks were high up on the list owing to big stories in 2020. Fox News Channel reported a 43 per cent increase in viewing figures.
HBO is planning to make a huge comeback post the Red Wedding year 2020. The television giant released their epic line up for upcoming shows and movies. The list included much-awaited movies like Zack Snyder’s Justice League. It also included a teaser for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon.
Game of Thrones fans are already hyped up for the prequel series. The epic line-up shows huge promise and will definitely put the network back on top. Are you excited about the upcoming shows and movies? Talk to us in the comments below!
The world is a boxing ring where you fight to keep yourself on your feet. People all around the world had to box really hard through the Red Wedding year 2020. The new year comes with huge expectations and promise. Game of Thrones’ Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has already started preparing for the bouts he has to face (quite literally). The strongman faced Irish boxer, Steven Ward, in an exhibition match and astonished everyone with his skills.
The duo went head to head at a sold-out Conrad Dubai on Friday. As it was an exhibition match, there was no victor declared. Ward was knocked down by Björnsson in the second round of the match. However, he bounced back in the final round with a flurry of punches that left Björnsson with a bloody nose.
Thor was full of praise for cruiserweight Ward after the lively draw: “Steven is unbelievable. I doubt many people would want to step into a ring with someone my size. Stevie has a big heart. To come here and do this exhibition with me means a lot. I needed that experience. Steven is the same height as my opponent in September, and this was great.”
Björnsson will face long time rival Eddie Hall later in September this year in Las Vegas. Are you excited about the World’s Heaviest Boxing match? Talk to us in the comments below!

There are no details available about what the focus of the potential series would be. No writers or talent are currently attached to the project. The television giant declined to comment.
Last week there were rumours about another Game of Thrones prequel in early stages of development. A series based on George R.R. Martin’s Tales of Dunk and Egg is in the works at HBO. The story follows the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg) 90 years prior to the events of Game of Thrones.
