“Writing our death pool predictions has become a lot easier after last season’s bloodbath. Many of Westeros’ Houses were almost completely wiped out, as Game of Thrones continued to earn it’s reputation as one of the most brutal shows on TV. Now, with the penultimate season upon us, the fight between the living and the dead comes into sharp focus. So who’s potentially going to be added to the Night King’s army? We give our rundown on who’s still standing, and whether we think they still will by the end of Season 7…” We take a stab at guessing which characters are living on borrowed time. … Read More Game of Thrones: Who’ll Bite the Dust in Season 7?
“This has been the best season finale in the history of Game of Thrones, in our humble opinion. Usually a weak episode after the strong and shocking 9th, this time the trend was bucked, with this particular instalment managing to make us hungry for the last two seasons at the same time as wrapping up older storylines, whilst also stylishly donning a winter coat of murder, intrigue and fun.” Our look back at the phenomenal Season 6 finale.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Winds of Winter’ (Season 6, Episode 10)
“…with that white raven winging it’s way over a snowy landscape, the birds they rear in the Citadel to send word across the Kingdom that the seasons are changing, it’s looks almost certain that Winter is finally here after 6 bloodthirsty seasons!” Our thoughts and predictions about the Season 6 finale.… Read More Game of Thrones: What might we see in the Season 6 Finale?
“Out of all of Arya’s scenes in the last couple of seasons… the exchange with Lady Crane was particularly strong. Not only did the actress’ observation that she has an expressive face ground her in her own identity, but the ‘Do you like pretending to be other people?’ question cemented in the youngest Stark sister’s mind that, no, she doesn’t. She will always be Someone.” Our look back at an episode filled with mind games, confrontations and glorious, and not so glorious, returns. … Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Blood of my Blood’ (Season 6, Episode 6)
“Just as we saw with Bran when he witnessed first hand what really happened in the fight between his Father and Arthur Dayne, once again we saw the difference between actual events in the past and the way they’ve been retold in the present during the play Arya witnessed. Going forward, that seems incredibly important for the bigger picture.” Our look at the fantastic fifth episode of the season.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Door’ (Season 6, Episode 5)
“You’d have to have a cold, cold heart not to have been moved by that scene where Jon and Sansa embraced in the courtyard at Castle Black. The only way it could have been better is if Ghost had bounded along, stood on his hind paws and joined in for a group hug.” Our take on the air-punch inducing, fourth outing of the Season.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Book of the Stranger’ (Season 6, Episode 4)
“It’s so intriguing that they brought up the difference between what Ned told Bran and the rest of his children about that fight at the Tower of Joy, and the fact that it bore no resemblance to what actually happened. Particularly now. So much of what we know about the past in this World comes from oral history, and if Ned Stark can’t be relied upon to tell the truth then everything else should be called into question too.” Our look back at the third episode of Season 6.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Oathbreaker’ (Season 6, Episode 3)
