Everything Wrong With the Final Season of ‘Game of Thrones’

Now that the dust has settled around what’s left of King’s Landing, there is room to examine why some fans have felt betrayed by season eight of Game of Thrones . The fan reaction to the episode has been divisive, with some overzealous and misguided fans petitioning for a “redo” of this season. While I’m certainly not among those folks, I found myself very angry at my favorite dragon show more than once this season. While it’s not uncommon for a series to drop the ball in the last inning, G...

The Night King Is Back And He’s Going After The Lion King

One epic battle to determine who truly is the King of the Jungle. WE MISS THE NIGHT KING Can we please bring him back? This season of Game Of Thrones just has lost any kind of real villains. Cersei? Besides being dead now, she only perfected gazing out of windows and speaking to people without making eye contact in season eight. Euron Greyjoy? He slouched in and out of scenes like a deadbeat dad and acted like he fell off a tour bus, got in line at craft services, and just got really goo...

‘Game of Thrones’ Delivers Its Most Divisive and Apocalyptic Episode With “The Bells”

Well, that was certainly a thing. The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, titled “The Bells,” somehow managed to be more apocalyptic than the episode with the battle against the literal army of the dead. The body count was massive. Characters made ugly and horrible decisions. The landscape of Westeros was forever altered. And there is still one episode left. /Film’s resident Game of Thrones experts Jacob Hall and Ben Pearson sat down to pick this episode apart and sort through the bodies an...

Daenerys Targaryen's Battle Braid Hides Game Of Thrones' Biggest Secrets

This story contains spoilers for Game of Thrones.With the final battle of King's Landing officially won — and the majority of the city burnt to a crisp — Daenerys Targaryen is set to reclaim her place on the Iron Throne. Still, there's one episode left of Game of Thrones and there's no telling exactly where Daenerys' fate lies (although her season two prophecy offers a major clue).Regardless of where your house loyalty currently lives, you can't deny that Dany's character arc is one of the best...

Arya Stark: everything you need to know about the Game of Thrones hero

Through seven and a half truly traumatic seasons of Westerosi warfare, no-one has had to adapt quite as fast or as frequently as Arya Stark. The tiny teenager seemed to spend mere moments as a child before becoming a water dancer, massacre escapist, Hound-in-training, Faceless Woman and maleficent assassin. With many identities in between - literally.  As Game of Thronesseason 8 nears its inevitably bitter end, here's a quick need-to-know guide on the feistiest young Stark, Arya. Who is Arya...

People of Westeros – of which I am totally one and not at all a ghost of non-fiction future – who, may I ask, would you have rule the seven kingdoms?

The Case Against Cersei Lannister, Who Will See Westeros Burn to Maintain Her Power

(Welcome to Debate of Thrones, where a panel of Citadel-trained experts explain why someone deserves, or doesn’t deserve, to sit on the Iron Throne. In this edition: Queen Cersei has proven herself incapable of caring about her kingdom or her subjects.) There was a time, three or four years ago, when I would argue in favor of our queen. Much like her father, Cersei is adept at political machinations. She understands both power and money well – she is a Lannister, after all. There was a time wh...

(Welcome to Debate of Thrones, where a panel of Citadel-trained experts explain why someone deserves, or doesn’t deserve, to sit on the Iron Throne. In this edition: all hail Cersei Lannister, Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.) Frankly, I’m not sure why we’re having this “debate” in the first place. Cersei Lannister, First of Her Name, currently sits atop the Iron Throne as the queen of the Andals and the First Men, and any discussion about a potential usurper or successor is tantamount to treason. ...

‘Game of Thrones’ Photos Set Up a Conflict at King’s Landing

On Game of Thrones, things are looking relatively good for Cersei Lannister at the moment. The Golden Company, an army of mercenaries from Essos, are at her beck and call. Her soldiers have all gotten plenty of rest. The same can’t be said for the forces from the North, led by potential contenders for the crown like Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow: they’re all tired from fighting against an undead swarm at the Battle of Winterfell, and emotionally drained from watching thousands of their ranks ...

What The Final Season Of Game Of Thrones Can Teach Us About The 2020 Election

Daenerys. Cersei. Arya. Sansa. With the exception of Jon Snow and a few dragons, the final season of Game of Thrones really is all about the women. Their rise to power, despite literally deadly odds, demands a close look at what underlies their survival and dominance. These women arguably emerged as leaders largely because they’ve all adhered to the three cardinal rules of a winning personal and political brand — strong identity, trusted credibility, and visible positioning.Part of the allure o...

We Need To Talk About Last Night’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Episode

THAT ENDING THOUGH. The sun had risen after ‘The Long Night’, the epic battle for Winterfell was over, and a solid third of everyone in the North was dead, so you’d think that this episode would be a little bit of a breather — for the characters and for everyone watching. And it was, for a bit. Dany, Sam, Sansa, and pretty much everybody else needed time to grieve and strategize, and then of course start the long trip down South. But first, a good old fashion “we narrowly prevented the ...

Is This Why Cersei Lannister's Hair Hasn't Grown On Game Of Thrones?

This story contains mild spoilers for season 8 of Game of Thrones.After spending close to a decade watching Game of Thrones, we've seen many of the show's characters grow and change for the better: Sandor "The Hound" Clegane, Sansa Stark... even Jaime Lannister has redeemed himself in ways we didn't see coming (actually, the jury is still out on that one). But while everyone around her evolves, Cersei Lannister's ruthless persona hasn't budged — and neither has her hair.After five seasons of we...
