“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? 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?
“The Targaryen sigil depicts a three-headed dragon, leading many to conclude that it’s symbolic of the the three prevailing prophecies in ‘The Known World’; ‘The Stallion who Mounts the World’, ‘The Prince who was Promised’ and ‘Azor Ahai’, all pointing to a single individual who will encapsulate all of these predictions and fight against the White Walkers in the War for the Dawn. Others, myself included, believe Rhaegar’s words actually represent three separate heroes who’ll be brought together to fight… against the dark forces in the North and perhaps ride Daenerys’ dragons in the onslaught.” Danielle delves into the various prophecies and reveals who is likely to be a part of the triumvirate and lead the forces against the Night King.… Read More Game of Thrones: ‘The Dragon Has Three Heads’- Who Might They Be And Why?

“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)
“Cersei is definitely the one holding Jaime back from becoming the honourable man it seems he wants to be when he’s in Brienne’s presence. It really appears to be an internal struggle for him, and while his sister still has a hold over him, he will threaten to kill everybody who gets in their way, including Edmure’s son via catapult if he has to,… even if he’s not the type to relish violence, in stark contrast to his twin.” Our response to a rather bloody, but lacklustre episode. … Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘No One’ (Season 6, Episode 8)
“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)
