'Game of Thrones': Looking Back at the Series' Funniest Episode

[This story contains full spoilers through seven seasons of HBO's Game of Thrones.]

It's not often that Game of Thrones kicks things off with a big laugh.

Sure, the opening scene in season three's third episode, "Walk of Punishment," begins on a somber note. Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) and the Northern Army are on hand for her father's funeral in Riverrun, watching solemnly as his body is cast out into the water. Catelyn's brother, the ineffectual Edmure Tully (Tobias Menzies), draws back a flaming arrow and launches it off at his father's drifting corpse, intending to set...

Stars Support Lorde's Decision To Boycott Israel

Over 100 well-known names – including writers, actors, directors and musicians – have signed a pledge supporting Lorde's decision not to perform in Israel.

The statement was published in The Guardian following backlash over the Kiwi singer’s cancellation of her concert in Tel Aviv. It is a direct response to a full page ad published in the Washington Post on January 1 which called Lorde a bigot and also attacked her homeland of New Zealand.

“We deplore the bullying tactics being used to defend injustice against Palestinians and to suppress an artist’s freedom of conscience. We support Lorde’s right to take a stand,” reads the letter in The Guardian. "Shmuley Boteach, the author and promoter of the advert, supports Israel’s illegal settlements and wrote last month on Breitbart to thank Donald Trump for “electrifying the world” with his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in defiance of international law.

Review: Game of Thrones – Season 7 – Episode 7

Alas, the Song of Ice and Fire draws to a close once again.

Season 7 really has been one hell of a thrill ride. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) met Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) met, and brought down, a dragon, Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) were finally reunited and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) managed to put yet another bun in Cersie’s (Lena Headey) oven. It’s also boasted the best battle scenes that Game of Thrones has shown yet, with the production team finally being gifted the budget the show has been dying for since day one. Indeed, spectacle wise, it would be very easy to label Season 7 as the best of all.

However.

Things have seemed a tad – un Game of Throneish this year. Maybe it’s because the story is finally getting going, and characters are being reunited, that have been apart for a number of seasons.

'Game of Thrones' Finale Delivers Shocking Twists

2017-08-28T05:01:11-07:00'Game of Thrones' Finale Delivers Shocking Twistsclass="p1">

GoT's seventh season came to an end last night, and it did so in a spectacular fashion. There's almost too much to talk about, but let's give it a try.

Via The Hollywood Reporter.

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for the season seven finale of HBO's Game of Thrones, called "The Dragon and the Wolf."]

Step aside, The Walking Dead. You're not the only genre show with an eighth season steeped in all-out war.

In its stunning season seven finale, Game of Thrones delivered a litany of monumental moments, including but not limited to (and seriously, final spoiler warning, turn back before it's too late): the death of Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), the consummation of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) relationship, the confirmation of Jon's status as a legitimate Targaryen, and so much more. Oh, and it finally gave viewers the moment they've awaited ever since the very first

You'll Never Sleep Again After Seeing This Incredibly Creepy Game of Thrones Detail

Buckle up, you guys, because I'm about to dive into what might be Game of Thrones season seven's craziest theory so far (other than ice dragons, obviously . . . and also Bran being the Night King . . . maybe it's not so crazy after all?!). In "The Spoils of War," episode four of the seventh season, the sparring session between Arya (Maisie Williams) and Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) at Winterfell ends up being one of the most touching scenes of the episode. Not only is there a heartbreaking connection to Arya's father, Ned Stark, but it turns out there might be a link to Arya's mother, Catelyn Stark, as well. One fan, Redditor GrennsGal, thinks the legit ghost of Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) can be seen casually strolling around Winterfell in the background of this scene. Right after Arya brings up the vow Brienne made to Catelyn ("You swore to serve both my mother's daughters

'Game of Thrones' Recap: Why Is Arya's Dagger So Important?

2017-08-09T07:21:37-07:00'Game of Thrones' Recap: Why Is Arya's Dagger So Important?class="p1">

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for the fourth episode of Game of Thrones' seventh season, "The Spoils of War."]

Entering season seven, virtually every Game of Thrones fan expected to see Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) return home to Winterfell. It was only a matter of when she would arrive back in the North, not if, no matter how hard the premiere episode worked to convince you otherwise.

What wasn't expected was the return of another instrumental player not seen in Winterfell since the first season: the Valyrian dagger that almost killed Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) shortly after he was pushed from high above by Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

For those who don't remember the weapon, a brief history: Bran was nearly assassinated with this dagger while he was bed-ridden and comatose following his "accident." The would-be killer brandished the blade in Bran's bedroom, and would have pulled

‘Game of Thrones’: Why Bran Will Be the One to Beat Littlefinger at His Own Game

‘Game of Thrones’: Why Bran Will Be the One to Beat Littlefinger at His Own Game
On “Game of Thrones,” Littlefinger might be the most dangerous man in Westeros, but he may have met his match.

Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (Aidan Gillen) is the epitome of a Westerosi success story. Although of low birth in this feudal society, his ambition, wits and ruthlessness allowed him to rise in the ranks until he finally became the Lord Protector of the Vale.

In contrast, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) was born into nobility but had much of his comfort and privilege stripped from him: half of his family members have been killed, he lost his ability to walk, and as the new Three-Eyed Raven, he is no longer heir to Winterfell.

New 'Game of Thrones' Photos Tease a Dangerous Confrontation

In one of their very first scenes together, Ned Stark (Sean Bean) grabbed Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) by the throat and threw him up against a wall, demanding answers. Moments later, Catelyn (Michelle Fairley) appeared and tensions thawed — if only until the next time Ned and Littlefinger met at the neck, this time with Lord Baelish pressing a dagger to Lord Stark's throat.

Will history repeat itself in the upcoming Game of Thrones episode? New photos for the second installment of the season, called "Stormborn," raise the possibility: In the photo above, we see the first-ever direct conversation...

‘Game of Thrones’: Why Jon Snow’s Resurrection Could Still Come Back to Haunt Him

‘Game of Thrones’: Why Jon Snow’s Resurrection Could Still Come Back to Haunt Him
On Sunday, we returned to Westeros to see Jon Snow (Kit Harington) taking up the mantle of King in the North with no problems — well, except for Sansa (Sophie Turner) questioning his every move publicly. But other than that, he’s looking pretty good for a guy who was stabbed multiple times, left to bleed out in the snow, and then brought back to life through divine or magical intervention.

But he shouldn’t be.

That is to say that resurrection by R’hllor, a.k.a. Red God, a.k.a. the Lord of Light, isn’t perfect. Just ask Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer), who’s been revived several times but isn’t looking all that fresh. That’s because resurrection via Red God does not mean complete recovery from the physical injuries that had led to your death. This is no Whovian regeneration. Most obviously, Beric is still

The final episode left us with Lizzie (Jodie Comer) fully embracing her Tudor future with her husband, King Henry VII (Jacob Collins-Levy) and their sons. Putting aside the potential curse that she and her mother laid, she had her brother, "The Boy" (Patrick Gibson) put to death alongside her cousin in order to quell any possibility of rebellion.
