‘Game of Thrones’ Lore Refresher: That Old Battle Jorah and Thoros Were Talking About

1 hour ago

Game of Thrones” characters routinely reference events and history that took place long before the show started. Without a working knowledge of Westerosi history, it’s easy to get confused when the show discusses things that happened years in the past — and that’s exactly what Ser Jorah (Iain Glen) and Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) do in the Season 7 episode “Beyond the Wall.” As they’re walking beyond the Wall on their mission to find an undead wight, capture it, and bring it back to show the lords of Westeros, Jorah and Thoros discuss a battle they fought together years. »

(Note: This post contains spoilers for the sixth episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 7, “Beyond the Wall.”) The veritable suicide mission that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) took in the aptly named “Game of Thrones” Season 7 episode, “Beyond the Wall,” turned out to be a disaster. Though Jon and some of the best warriors in Westeros managed to capture an undead wight in order to prove the people in the South that the Night King was real, it came with some serious costs. Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) was killed during the expedition, and when Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) arrived with »

‘Game of Thrones': Everyone in Winterfell Has Secret Plans and We Don’t Know What They Are

4 hours ago

(Spoilers ahead for “Beyond the Wall,” the Aug. 20 episode of “Game of Thrones”) In the game of thrones, you win or you die. In “Game of Thrones” Season 7, the most serious and potentially lethal intrigue is taking place between the Stark kids at Winterfell.

‘Game of Thrones': Where the Hell Is Ghost, Jon Snow’s Direwolf?

5 hours ago

(Some light spoilers for the August 20 episode of “Game of Thrones.”) It was an eventful week for Jon Snow, heading north of the wall with his elite squad to try to kidnap an undead wight. Well, not as elite a squad as it could have been, given that Jon’s direwolf Ghost was noticeably absent from this adventure. In fact, we haven’t seen him in season 7 at all! Ghost has seemingly gone Awol. He’s always been something of a free spirit on “Game of Thrones.” When he went north of the Wall with the Night’s Watch, Ghost spent a lot of. »

5 hours ago

(Spoilers ahead for the August 20 episode of “Game of Thrones,” “Beyond the Wall.”) It was an eventful episode this week on two fronts.

Then you have the whole suicide squad thing with Jon Snow and the others north of the wall, and their quest to kidnap a living skeleton so they can prove to the southerners that the White Walker threat is real. The mission turned out to. »
