If you haven’t seen last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, watch it right now! If you’re busy with something annoying like your job and you can’t watch it right now, be sure to stop reading this post because it’s packed full of spoilers. Season 6’s ninth episode is definitely one to remember. More →
Between the unbelievable finish to the NBA Finals and the budget-blowing ninth episode of Game of Thrones’ sixth season, it’s understandable that more people aren’t talking about the teaser trailer for HBO’s Westworld.
Like it or not, the season finale of Game of Thrones is almost here. We’re less than a week away from the conclusion of season 6, and we’re in for a very long episode intended to bring us answers to some of our most burning questions — but also to offer teasers of what’s to come in next year’s seventh season. The first trailer for episode 10 is already out, but you should avoid watching it if you haven’t seen episode 9 yet; there are some major spoilers lie ahead. More →
Just days after Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm co-star J.B. Smoove told Rich Eisen that David seemed to finally be mulling over the idea of bringing the show back, HBO has confirmed that season 9 is in the works.
There are two Game of Thrones episodes left. Yes. Just. Two. As if that’s not bad enough, HBO is now pulling one of the silliest stunts we’ve seen in television. It’s withholding episode descriptions for episodes 9 and 10, all in the name of secrecy. Too bad the network isn’t as good as preventing episodes from leaking well ahead of their premieres. More →
Game of Thrones has a serious piracy problem. That much is not news, but with the most recent season, things are getting to a whole new level.
As TorrentFreak reports, last night’s Game of Thrones episode was leaked to pirates hours in advance of its actual release on HBO. What makes things worse is that the leak didn’t come from the usual source, press screeners — it appears to be coming from an official HBO streaming service.
Even though HBO decided to bring Jon Snow back to life rather early at the end of the second episode of the current Game of Thrones season, he’s had only a few brief appearances since then. And so far we’ve seen a Jon Snow who’s troubled about what happened, but also pretty determined to help Sansa and his family regain command of the north and then lead the defenses against the White Walkers. To some people, it may feel like Jon Snow is too absent from the show, but that’s actually a good thing. The show isn’t only about him, and while a big part of the main plot of the season revolves around this particular character, there are plenty of other important things going on in Westeros and Essos that we need to be aware of.
With just two episodes left in season six, episode 8 brought us even closer to the inevitable conflict between bastards. But you should stop reading now, to avoid major spoilers, if you haven’t seen episode 8 yet. More →
We’re at that point in the current Game of Thrones season where we’re experiencing both huge anticipation and sadness at the same time. With episode 7 done for, it means the action will significantly pick up in the three parts left in the season. But it also means we’re going to get back to waiting for months for season 7 to come along.
That said, we’re not quite there yet, and episode 7 is only revealing more of the machinations that go behind winning a throne — any throne, not just the one in King’s Landing. We might be looking for exciting, fast-paced episodes filled with interesting revelations and epic battles. But intrigue is probably the single most important thing happening in The Seven Kingdoms. It truly is a game of thrones. And episode 7 is full of intrigue – major spoilers follow ahead, so avoid them at all costs if you haven’t seen the latest episode. More →
Like or not, we’re getting closer to the end of yet another Game of Thrones season, which means we’re getting awfully close to what’ll probably be quite an ending. The first trailer for next week’s episode is already here, offering us glimpses at the next games that are going to be played for this particular throne. Beware, though, spoilers lie ahead, so don’t watch the clip if you haven’t seen last night’s episode. More →
In less than a month we’ll go into Game of Thrones withdrawal, as HBO’s top show is nearing the end of season six. Episode 6 may not have been the most interesting episode this season — in fact, it was pretty terrible — but it still reminded us that there are so many plots and subplots to keep track of. Episode 7 might be a lot more interesting if the first trailer is any indication.
Now, HBO has released a slew of new images from the upcoming episode, offering us yet another a taste of what’s to come. More →
Long before Game of Thrones season 6 kicked off on HBO, book readers began to worry that the show would spoil many of the upcoming plot points in the remaining books that George R.R. Martin has yet to complete. They were right — the show has now moved into uncharted territory — but that doesn’t mean the books aren’t still going to have plenty of surprises of their own.
