Did You Know?


In the books, the Faith Militant were not required to carve the seven pointed stars onto their foreheads. It was sufficient for them to paint the star on their brows or sew a badge of it to their clothes. Only the zealous among them carved the star into their chests, not their foreheads. See more »


When Daenerys sets sails to Westeros, the direction of the Targaryen flag on Grey Worm's ship is inconsistent with the sails. See more »


Samwell Tarly: From Lord Commander Snow at Castle Black.
[Sam puts a letter in the Citadel Maesters hand]
Samwell Tarly: I'm... I'm to be the new maester.
Citadel Maester: According to our records. Jeor Mormont is Lord Commander.
Samwell Tarly: He died...
Citadel Maester: We received no report from the maester at Castle Black.
Samwell Tarly: Maester Aemon became quite ill, shortly after the election. He since passed away... which is why I'm here.
Citadel Maester: This is irregular.
Samwell Tarly: Yes, well I suppose life is irregular.

An Benchmark for how an SEASON FINALE should be done !!!
27 June 2016 | by sanjaylathishSee all my reviews

How do you top one of the best episode in the TV history??simple, By creating another episode with absolute perfection. DAMN Miguel Sapochnik is one hell of a director(Gift,Hardhome, BoB and now WoW), producers should use him to direct every episode of the coming seasons. WOW Just WOW what more can you say, this is how a season finale should be done, with perfection,clarity and little bit of anxiety for the next season. The episode started slowly , but it picked up on the way and it was great seeing every questions, stories are cleared and connected without losing the clarity. Acting was just top notch, Ser Davos was breathtaking, Lady Mormont damn she is one hell of a actress, the dialogues and the expression was superb and rest was below these guys.(not too down :P) The best thing was the BGM it was Hans Zimmer like, TAKE A BOW RAMIN DJAWADI, you were the soul of this episode without you it would not have the desired effect. It would take one hell of a episode to break the bar set by WoW (hoping for one). if you missed this, for any reason watch it at the earliest, because it is something that should not be missed :)
