“With Weiss and Benioff back in the driving seat as scriptwriters, Thrones returned to form with punchy, gut-wrenching and sometimes raucously funny dialogue in ‘The Queen’s Justice’. Likewise, the various storylines from one end of Westeros to the other slotted together neatly, adding to the impending sense that the pieces of the puzzle are all coming together, as some of the main players begin to turn their attentions to the real threat: the Night King and his army.” Our Round-Up of the ‘punchy’ third episode.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Queen’s Justice’ (Season 7, Episode 3)
“With those extra budgetary dollars plain to see on-screen, and the twisted political intrigue alongside the more supernatural elements already jostling with one another to create the narrative tautness we’ve become so accustomed to with Thrones, it’s definitely not going to be a chore to see how all of these plotlines shake out.” Our Round-Up of the intriguing Season 7 opener. … Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Dragonstone’ (Season 7, Episode 1)
“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?

“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)
“Set upon by White Walkers as his ranging party were looking for them, he was mortally wounded with an ice spear and had begun changing into a wight when the Children of the Forest stopped the process by plunging dragonglass into his chest. Since then he’s been serving the Three-Eyed Raven North of the Wall. As we wander deep into the show’s underlying mythology that seems fair enough, right? But what if there was more to Benjen’s exchange with his nephew and Meera than meets the eye?” Danielle takes a look at the possible implications of the events surrounding Benjen’s resurrection.… Read More Game of Thrones: Why might Benjen’s Return be so important?
