19 Egregiously Unrealistic Things That Happened on This Week's Game of Thrones

10 hours ago

Game of Thrones is a show about dragons, zombie bears, and people regularly coming back to life, so it shouldn't be news to anyone that watching the fantasy epic requires just a little bit of suspended belief. That being said, I found myself repeating the same thing over and over again as I took in season seven's sixth episode: "Wow, that makes absolutely No sense." "Holy sh*t, that doesn't make any sense." "Does that make sense to you? Because . . . what the hell?" Granted, I'm not expecting realism from a show that once depicted the birth of shadow demon, but "Beyond the Wall" - as thrilling as it is - is basically a nonstop barrage of seemingly lazy plot devices designed to move the episode along at warp speed without having to bother explaining how any of it is even remotely possible. I don't necessarily need to have a scene »

A Quick Refresher on Why Daenerys Targaryen's Claim to the Iron Throne Is So Strong

13 hours ago

There are a ton of people vying for the Iron Throne on Game of Thrones, so what, exactly, makes Daenerys Targaryen's claim so strong? Other than her badass dragons, her fierce coat collection, and the fact that she might be the long-awaited Prince Who Was Promised? Her blood, of course. Like Westeros's current queen, Cersei Lannister, Daenerys comes from a long line of noble blood. She's the only surviving child of the last Targaryen ruler of Westeros, King Aerys II. As we've been reminded over and over again in season seven, Dany's late father is also known as the Mad King, since his increasingly erratic reign ended with the gut-wrenching and unnecessarily cruel deaths of Rickard and Brandon Stark (aka Ned's father and brother). After their executions, houses Arryn, Baratheon, Stark, and Tully rebelled against Aerys and took over King's Landing. RelatedThese Are the Targaryens Every Game of Thrones Fan »

Riverdale's Season 2 Poster Contains a Telling Hint About Jughead's Emotional Storyline

14 hours ago

Riverdale is currently filming season two, but we already have some pretty juicy details about the upcoming season. With that huge cliffhanger during the season one finale, there is bound to be even more darkness along the way - including another possible murder investigation! While the fate of some of our favorite characters (and couples) still hangs by a thread, we are anxious to see what dark turn the series will take next season. See the most crucial details before Riverdale returns on Oct. 11. 1. Another Character Might Die The small town of Riverdale just can't escape death, can it? While the finale leaves the fate of Fred Andrews up in the air, we have a strong inkling he doesn't make it.

This Theory Explains the Real Reason For Jon Snow's Insane Mission Beyond the Wall

14 hours ago

The penultimate season seven episode of Game of Thrones has been met with pretty mixed reactions. On one hand, it's intense and insane in the best ways: the plot thickens between Sansa and Arya (though we hope they're secretly working together). And then there's that whole suicide mission in the North: Jon Snow and his band of merry men attempt to kidnap a wight without the Night King destroying all of them, and when Daenerys comes to their rescue, she loses a dragon in the process. On the other end of the spectrum, some fans found the episode to be completely unrealistic. There are so many complaints about the wonky timeline that even the director had to address them. Many also had trouble justifying the mission in the first place. Jon Snow brings a wight back to King's Landing, and . . . what? Cersei's just going to be like, "Oh, cool, let's forget everything and unite! »

Why We Think the Night King Set a Deliberate Trap For Dany's Dragons

15 hours ago

Game of Thrones season seven's thrilling sixth episode, "Beyond the Wall," moves at a breakneck pace and is practically bursting with nonstop action. That said, we had a few bones to pick with certain plot points after watching. In addition to being perplexed by the episode's wonky timeline and those seriously strange conversations between Arya and Sansa, we also had to wonder how in the hell the Night King appeared to know that Daenerys's dragons would show up to aid Jon Snow. Luckily, a new theory about the Night King's abilities has emerged, and it's so convincing that we desperately need it to be canon. As we see in the season six episode "The Door," the Night King has a very strong connection to Bran Stark. When Bran is having his vision outside of the cave of the three-eyed raven, the White Walker's fearless leader is able to physically interact »

We Have Game of Thrones Finale Pictures, and There Is a Lot to Go Over

16 hours ago

We've never been so excited and so devastated at the same time. Game of Thrones season finale pictures are here, which means we're finally getting a glimpse at what is sure to be an epic conclusion to season seven. It also means we're about to get our last dose of Game of Thrones for a long, long time. After all, the eighth season may not be coming until 2019. But let's not worry about that right now; we have some serious speculating to do. What do the finale pictures hold? Who will survive and who will die?!

Let's Take Bets on Who the Big Death of the Game of Thrones Finale Will Be

16 hours ago

Dun dun Dun Dun, Dun dun Dun Dun - that's right, friends, the Game of Thrones season finale is already upon us! Don't just grieve for the rudely short season, either; grieve for the inevitable character death, nay deaths, that the season finale promises. The penultimate episodes of each season always have a lot of deaths, too, and last week was no different (Rip Viserion), but the finales are just as bad. Remember Tommen's fateful step into the air from season six? Or the entire Sept blowing? And that time in the season five finale when a side character you barely noticed named Jon Snow is stabbed to death for the watch? Yeah, so, gird your loins. A lot of important characters have already died this season, so the season finale is probably going to get even crazier. While we hope that someone we hate meets their end in the episode, »

11 Must-Read Book Series If You Love Game of Thrones

17 hours ago

Even though it feels like season seven of Game of Thrones just started, the truth is the long Winter without the Starks, Lannisters, and Daenerys is upon us once again. Just because it's almost time to say farewell to the characters until next year doesn't mean there's no way for you to get your fix of political intrigue, dragons, and flawed characters struggling to survive in war-torn worlds. There are plenty of fantasy book series out there just waiting to fill the Game of Thrones void in your life. Of course, one of those series is A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, the books on which Game of Thrones is based. But you've already read those, right? Right?

How Beric Dondarrion Makes His Sword Catch Fire

18 hours ago

After months of teasing, Game of Thrones finally gave fans what they had been waiting for in "Beyond the Wall": more of Beric Dondarrion and his flaming sword of awesome. The knight who has been brought back from the dead six times hasn't been given a massive amount of screen time, but he's known for making every moment count. After all, it's kind of hard to miss a guy who wields a sword that is literally on fire. But what causes Beric's sword to flame? Azor Ahai is meant to possess a magical sword called Lightbringer, but according to the book series, it actually radiates light and heat at all times. Beric's sword is easily extinguished, which means it's unlikely to be the legendary Lightbringer. That doesn't mean what's fueling the flames is any less magical though. The best place to find the answer to this mystery is in »

Why Daenerys Having a Baby on Game of Thrones Could Change Everything as We Know It

20 hours ago

The following contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven. Daenerys Targaryen might think that she's unable to have kids, but if one fan's theory proves true, her womb is about to get a huge surprise. According to one Tumblr user's interpretation of an important line from the series, not only can Daenerys have children following the death of her dragon, Viserion, but she'll be able to fulfill a huge prophecy by doing so. The theory suggests: http://girlwiththerubyslippers.tumblr.com/post/164429212716/just-a-theory You see, after Mirri Maz Duur (the priestess from season one who uses blood magic to "heal" Khal Drogo) tells Daenerys that "only death can pay for life," she also prophesies that "he will return" once Daenerys's womb quickens and she bears a living child. Though fans - and Daenerys herself - initially interpreted this prophecy to mean Khal Drogo would return, it could actually be taken »
