We’ve spent five seasons exploring the land of Westeros with our favorite (and least favorite) characters on Game of Thrones, but what would it be like to actually visit George R.R. Martin’s fictional world? One fan got to find out when he was cast as an extra for the infamous Purple Wedding scene in season four. More →
With season 5 of Game of Thrones now in the books, and Jon Snow officially dead (he is dead, right?), many fans are already starting to speculate on what we might expect to see in future seasons Though seven seasons of GOT on HBO are reportedly planned, Game of Thrones scribe Geroge RR Martin still has to finish writing the last two books in the series. And while we have a long ways to go until we reach the series finale, Martin recently explained what users can look forward to when Game of Thrones reaches what will undoubtedly be a rousing conclusion.
Luckily for us, life on Earth isn’t governed by Game of Thrones-style laws anymore, but some people still think otherwise. One Staten Island lawyer has gone ahead and asked for a trial by combat in a lawsuit in which he and his firm happen to be co-defendants. This isn’t a joke, it really happened. More →

They say truth is stranger than fiction. And sometimes, well, sometimes truth and fiction overlap in the craziest of ways.
During the season 5 finale of Game of Thrones, a once-proud Cersei Lannister was forced to march for miles through Kings Landing completely naked to atone for her sins. All the while, townspeople spewed vulgar insults in her direction while simultaneously hurling unspeakable objects her way. The scene, which went on for minutes on end, was dramatic and intensely emotional.
Game of Thrones fans, you have your work cut out for you.
Millions of fans of HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones are reeling now that the fifth season has come to an end. What will become of Daenerys? Is Jon Snow really dead?
