Top 10 best duos in Game of Thrones from season 1 to 6

Published

on

From the first series and onwards, Game of Thrones has had a fine collection of dynamic character duos. Whether they are a force for good, for evil, or just comedic effect, the series has continually reconfigured itself to come up with these intriguing and entertaining matches. It is one of the show’s greatest strengths. And don’t we just love watching these characters play off against each other?

In season one, we saw the bromance between Tyrion and Bronn begin to blossom. Now going into season 7, I’m hoping for a reunion between the two. Likewise, the opportunity to watch the bromance between Jon Snow and Tormund go to a new level is an exciting prospect. Not that kind of level! In fact, there is still the potential for new duos to develop. I’m putting a bet on Ser Davos and Lyanna Mormont to become a strong force in Season 7, as she will fill the place of Shireen in Davos’ heart.

Enough of the conjecture! Here we are. The best duos in Game of Thrones in particular order:

1. Arya & The Hound

How could we forget possibly the greatest duo the show has ever seen? In fact, the match up between Arya and The Hound is one of the best duos in TV history. That is no exaggeration. After meeting in the Riverlands (by meeting I mean The Hound’s kidnap of Arya), both killers developed a strange relationship. In a sense, The Hound almost became a father figure. However, what kind of a father teaches his daughter to kill? Also, what kind of a father initially kidnaps his child? Whatever the situation, the relationship between Arya and The Hound was dark, comedic and ultimately tragic, as Arya left him to die. Yet the Hound survived, so a reunion is on the cards this season. Fingers crossed!

2. Tyrion & Bronn

Once again, another classic Game of Thrones duo. Both characters met during Season 1 on the road to the Vale of Aryyn, under the charge of Lady Stark. However, their relationship lasted much longer than many of their travelling companions. After four seasons together, Tyrion’s trial split the pair apart. Bronn was bought by Cersei in exchange for giving evidence against Tyrion. However, this betrayal was always on the cards. Yet, with Tyrion on his way back to Westeros, we will soon find out whether there are any hard feelings between the two.

3. Pod & Brienne

 

Pod and Brienne were brought together at the end of Season Four, and, two seasons later, they are one of our favourite duos. Brienne’s refusal to give up on her quest to save the Stark girls and Pod’s devotion to serve her has made them an endearing duo. Each has also enabled the other to grow. Brienne has trained Pod to fight. Pod has helped Brienne come to terms with her status as a Lady. They are also one of the few surviving duos on the show and we hope they both stay that way for the upcoming seasons! However, this is Game of Thrones and survival is always a lottery.

4. Tyrion & Varys

In Season Two, the master of whispers and the new Hand of the King were thrust together by the beginning of the War of the Five Kings. Tyrion’s role was to keep Joffrey from losing his crown and to also prepare the city of King’s Landing for war. Varys helps him in this. Yet, with Season Two far in the past, the pair are still in positions of power, this time with the incoming wannabe ruler of Westeros, Daenerys Targaryen. One can assume their relationship will continue to entertain viewers for the upcoming seasons. I for one am looking forward to it!

5. Brienne & Jaime

Jaime and Brienne’s relationship was one of the most complex in Game of Thrones. At first, the two despised each other. That hate turned to care, after their experience at Harrenhal. Now, it is difficult to say exactly what they feel for each other. However, what does seem obvious is that, on some level, Brienne and Jaime appear to be in love. Yet, as with all good love stories, it is fraught with conflict. One of the biggest conflicts being the fact that both back different sides in the war to come. Their reunion in Season 6 will surely not be the last time we see these characters together, so stay tuned for Season 7.

6. The Mountain & Qyburn 

qyburn-and-the-mountain-6886302

This may seem like a random duo to include in such a list, but come on! The Mountain and Qyburn are basically Frankenstein and his monster. Whether Qyburn will die at the hands of the Mountain, like Frankenstein, is difficult to say. Wouldn’t it be wonderfully poetic? However, I think Game of Thrones will end up dispatching both characters in its own unique way. I personally can foresee Qyburn being sizzled by a Dragon. I’m not too sure why. As for The Mountain, that’s another matter entirely.

7. Jon Snow & Dolorus Edd

The 998th Lord Commander of Night’s Watch and the now 999th Lord Commander are the longest running duo on the list. After Sam departed for Oldtown in Season 5, Jon Snow and Dolorus Edd grew closer. In fact, Edd played a crucial and understated role in the resurrection of Jon Snow, sneaking out of Castle Black and bringing the Wildlings back with him to stop Ser Alliser from destroying Jon’s body. Now that Jon has abandoned the watch, Edd is in charge of defending The Wall. However, I doubt Jon will simply forget about the threat from the White Walkers. Season 7 will see the two once again reunited beneath The Wall.

8. Danny & Missandei

After Doreah’s betrayel of Danny in Season two and the murder of her other handmaids in Qarth, Danny is left without any female friends or servants. Whilst this is greatly different in the books, the introduction of Missandei has an important impact of Daenerys. Missandei is introduced in Season 3 of Game of Thrones. She is a slave of Astapor. However, as we know, Danny sets her free. Now, five season’s later, Missandei is one of Danny’s most trusted advisors. The duo has a close relationship and one we are sure to see more of in Season 7.

9. Jon Snow & Tormund 

A new dynamic duo formed in the build up to the Battle of the Bastards. Jon Snow and Tormund had previously shared many scenes together. The respect each had for the other was obvious. However, in Season 6, both characters went to a new level, as they took the place of my favourite Game of Thrones duo. Not only are they both great fighters, they also share a real bond due to the experiences they have had in battle, firstly with each other at Castle Black and then together during the attack on Hardhome. I hope the duo remain intact to the end of Game of Thrones, but I know that is unlikely. All we can do is hope!

10. Jaime & Bronn

jaime-and-bronn-2464946

Back in Season 4, a new favourite duo were forged. This partnership threw Jaime Lannister, a man without honour, together with Tyrion’s sellsword, Bronn, a man with even less honour. Whilst this duo are not a part of the books, fans grew to love the dynamic between the pair. Despite the fact that their first adventure together ended in failure, both in terms of rescuing Myrcella and in capturing the wonders of Dorne for audiences across the world, viewers were given another chance to view the pair in action in Season 6. Fans have enjoyed their dynamic partnership ever since. With war approaching once again, it looks likely that we will see more of Jaime and Bronn. The question is, who will Bronn support when confronted with Tyrion? We’ll have to wait and see in Season 7!

BONUS: Joffrey & his Crossbow

Sorry, I couldn’t resist…

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

Published

on

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.

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.”

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.
