Why Jon Snow is doomed to kill Daenerys on ‘Game of Thrones’

For years now Game of Thrones fans have been theorizing about the “bittersweet” ending that George R. R. Martin promised them. But one fan theory predicts the most perfectly sorrowful — yet satisfying — conclusion to the story, with Jon and Daenerys’ tragic romance at the center of it all.

A recent Reddit essay makes a convincing argument for an interpretation of the the Prince That Was Promised prophecy that could change everything. In line with Game of Thrones‘ history of plot twists, it proposes a finale where Jon and Daenerys don’t actually save the day with a gallant military victory over the White Walkers like we expect.  Read more…

Melisandre’s cryptic exit could hold a big clue to ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8

Game of Thrones is populated by more than its fair share of shady characters, but there’s no figure quite as enigmatic as the Red Priestess Melisandre, who showed up at Dragonstone in Season 7 for just long enough to engineer a meeting between Daenerys and Jon, before promptly getting the hell out of dodge. 

She told Varys she intended to sail to Volantis, one of the Free Cities of Essos, but promised, much like the Terminator, she’ll be back.

“I will return, dear Spider, one last time,” she said. “I have to die in this strange country, just like you.” Read more…

Everything you didn’t want to know about Jon + Dany incest on ‘Game of Thrones’

Let’s  just get this out of the way: Yuck, and also yuck.

We acknowledge and understand the revulsion you may be feeling toward taking a dive into this topic, even if it is just Game of Thrones. But we had to know. So did you, apparently.

SEE ALSO: The ‘Game of Thrones’ world must abandon the patriarchy, or die

Let’s get right into it: Just how incestuous is Jon + Dany, according to science, law, and social mores?

In the case of pure human biology, it’s a pretty cut-and-dried case, though potential effects on offspring are poorly understood. As far as the law and social acceptance, well, depending on where you live, aunt-and-nephew sex ranges from totally not a big deal to … punishable by death. Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ behind-the-scenes video for episode 7 is a must watch

Warning: Obviously contains a few spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 7.

If ever you needed proof that the Game of Thrones characters love each other really, just watch the behind-the-scenes video above for the dragon pit scene in episode 7.

Admittedly the featurette doesn’t give too much away (although it’s interesting to hear them talk about the extent to which Jaime is convinced by Dany, Jon, and Tyrion), but at the very least it’s worth watching for moments like this: 

Glorious. Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ star weighs in on Dany and Jon’s union: ‘It’s going to blow up in their faces’

Davos Seaworth has basically been the lone voice of reason on Game of Thrones since his introduction in Season 2, graduating from advising the terminally stubborn Stannis Baratheon to advising the suicidally stubborn Jon Snow (aka Aegon Targaryen).

Both of those roles were pretty thankless, and now that Jon has decided to unite — politically and, um, physically — with Daenerys Targaryen (aka Jon’s aunt), life’s about to get a lot more difficult for everyone on Team Snowgaryen heading into the final season.

Mashable spoke to Ser Davos himself, Liam Cunningham, in the wake of the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, to discuss his thoughts on Westeros’ newest incestuous power couple, who will survive Season 8, and whether we’ll finally get to see Cleganebowl.  Read more…

Here’s a bunch of awards we made up for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7

So ends another season of Game of Thrones, which means we’ve got over a year to wait until we’re back in Westeros. In the meantime, then, let’s look back at the season that was.

SEE ALSO: When will ‘Game of Thrones’ return for its final season? We’ve got a theory.

If Season 7 was uniquely frustrating in some ways (seriously, what is with the lightning-speed travel?) it was also deliciously satisfying in others (three words: ice zombie dragon). It had moments that made us howl with laughter, and moments that made us scream with anger. 

It was silly, it was smart, it was stupid, it was spectacular. Here are some of the most superlative moments of Game of Thrones Season 7.  Read more…

What to expect from ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 after that bonkers finale

This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 7, titled “The Dragon and the Wolf.”

Game of Thrones ended its Season 7 finale with a bang — quite literally, as a large chunk of the Wall that has held the White Walkers at bay for thousands of years came tumbling down, potentially taking the resilient Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarrion down with it. 

(Then again, history has proven that if you don’t see a killing blow on this show, chances are your favorite character will probably make a miraculous reappearance.)

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 finale gave us everything we’ve been waiting for – didn’t it?

This recap is dark and full of spoilers for the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”

Shit just got real.

It was inevitable, even before the Night King raised Viserion from the dead in last week’s chilling final moments, that we would end up here — but knowing that we’re barreling towards an unavoidable conclusion is very different from seeing it play out before our eyes. 

The Wall has stood for thousands of years, and watching it crumble (even partially) marks the end of an era in Westeros. For all the sweet summer children who have lived in blissful ignorance of the dangers that lurk just out of sight, the world has changed inexorably, and what’s even more disturbing is the fact that there are still those out there — like Cersei — who, even when faced with the truth, would rather watch millions die than set aside their own pride. (Feels uncomfortably timely, doesn’t it?)  Read more…

Will the most hyped ‘Game of Thrones’ fight ever finally go down in the season finale?

Sometimes Game of Thrones theories are less theory and more straight up hype. And, in one case, the hype is just too real.

Cleganebowl is a prediction that has stayed with the Game of Thrones fandom since the days of yore, in 2013. Essentially, it’s fueled by the dream of watching the two most feared fighters in all of Westeros, the Hound and the Mountain (who are also brothers), face off in a fight to the death.

SEE ALSO: Here’s why Uncle Benjen’s reunion with Jon Snow was so important in ‘Game of Thrones’ episode 6

At this point, Cleganebowl is like a religion, with its own fervent following, hashtag, and dedicated subreddit. What is lacks in canonical evidence, it certainly makes up for in pure rad-ness factor. Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ fans still have a single, burning question about that scene in ‘Beyond the Wall’

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 6, titled “Beyond the Wall.”

SEE ALSO: Did you catch Daenerys’ ‘Terminator’ moment in ‘Game of Thrones’?

Never mind the Night King performing an Olympic javelin stunt and killing a dragon, Viserion.

Or even the army of the dead dragging Viserion’s body out of the water and the Night King resurrecting him as a zombie Ice Dragon.

People are insanely obsessed by another, mostly overlooked detail from that episode. Where do the Night King and the other White Walkers get those big, industralized chains???

While we’re bitching and moaning about Game of Thrones… where in the f**king f**k did the Night King get so many heavy metal chains?
