Game Of Thrones Season 7 Cersei Lannister

Game of Thrones
Episode 7.1 “Dragonstone”
Directed by Jeremy Podeswa
Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss

HBO
Air date: July 16, 2017

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

After waiting an excruciatingly long 13 months of waiting for the premiere of Season 7 of Game Of Thrones. And while it feel weird that “Winter Is Here” in mid-July, I think we can all agree that we’ll take it!!!

So, do you all remember what happened during Season 6? I’m guessing, YES! Because what an amazing season it was (check out the rundown of the Season 6 finale). Not only was it the season that saw the resurrection of Jon Snow, but also the reveal of the bastard’s heritage — he is, in fact, as suspected, the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. Yes, he’s a Stark-Targaryen, not the bastard son of the noble Ned Stark. There was also the reuniting of Jon Snow and Sansa Stark, which led to the satisfying Battle Of The Bastards, where Ramsay Bolton finally got what was coming to him. Season 6 also ended with the death of Cersei Lannister’s third and last child, the boy king Tommen, who killed himself after watching his wife and other subjects die in an explosion in the city. Oh, and it was Cersei who caused the explosion! While Cersei takes the crown, Daenerys Targaryen, the rightful Queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, allied with Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Theon and Yara Greyjoy, the Tyrells, the Martells, and of course, her three huge dragons, and more, finally sets sail to Westeros to claim the Iron Throne.

SDCC 2013: Dexter panel: Yvonne Strahovski joins Predator

Following the announcement earlier this week that Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen has joined the cast of the next Predator movie, titled The Predator, comes word that Yvonne Strahovski is also joining the cast.

Strahovski played Sarah Walker in 91 episodes of the comedy series Chuck, and has also starred in Dexter, 24: Live Another Day, and The Handmaiden’s Tale. If you’re like me, however, you best know her as Miranda Lawson from the Mass Effect games.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Alfie Allen Joins Cast Of ‘The Predator’

SDCC 2012: HBOs Game of Thrones panel: Alfie Allen

It’s hard to imagine anyone liking a character played by Alfie Allen. As Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones he seized Winterfell, and as Iosef Tarasov he killed John Wick’s dog.

Course, just because he plays unlikable characters doesn’t mean that it is an ongoing thing. So who knows what he’ll be playing as he has been cast in The Predator. Find out more about the character and plot of the film in the report below.

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

The Season 6 finale for Game Of Thrones aired earlier, and oh man oh man oh man. SO MUCH GOOD STUFF. I’m trying to organize my thoughts, but my head is spinning. A lot of storylines were not only revisited, but were given a satisfying conclusion.

The High Sparrow awaits Cersei and Loras in the Sept for their trial, but Cersei has other plans; Walder Frey toasts to his successful alliance with the Lannisters, but perhaps his celebrating is a bit premature; Sam, Gilly, and baby Sam make it to the Citadel; Ser Davos confronts Melisandre about what happened to Shireen Baratheon; Dany finally sets sail to Westeros, but must leave something behind; Littlefinger reveals to Sansa his true desires; Olenna Tyrell considers teaming up with the Sand Snakes of Dorne against the Lannisters; it’s time for the North to remember, now that Jon Snow and Sansa Stark have reclaimed Winterfell; and Bran Stark, now the Three-Eyed Raven, takes a trip back in time to the Tower Of Joy to find out why truly happened with his Aunt Lyanna.

SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, here’s what happened on Episode 6.10 “The Winds of Winter”…

HBO
Air date: June 19, 2016

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

On last week’s Game Of Thrones, we found out what happened to the actress Lady Crane as well as the end result of Arya’s intense internship at the House of Black and White; Jaime Lannister met the Blackfish of House Tully at Riverrun, where he also said farewell to his unlikely friend Brienne, as she returned to her Lady Sansa; Cersei chose violence when dealing with the Faith Militant, although the High Sparrow had a leg up on her when he convinced her son, the King, to ban Trial by Combat, which means she’ll have to face trial by the Seven; the Hound got his revenge on the Brotherhood members who slaughtered his people; and Meereen was under attack by the Masters.

While this week’s episode, 6.9 “Battle of the Bastards,” did return to Meereen, where its queen, Daenerys, was ready to fight back, the bulk of the story centered on the title battle for Winterfell between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton.

Game Of Thrones 6.7 Margaery

Game of Thrones
Episode 6.7 “The Broken Man”

Starring Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Carice van Houten, Alfie Allen, Natalie Dormer
HBO
Air date: June 5, 2016

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

Last week’s Game Of Thrones took us for the first time to Horn Hill, the ancestral home of Samwell Tarly, while Arya Stark made her final decision to not join the Faceless Men, and the Faith Militant once again won the upper hand in Kings Landing after securing the ultimate follower, the boy King Tommen Baratheon, who announced the joining of the Crown and the Faith. Also, Uncle Benjen, long presumed dead, came back as a not-quite White Walker.

On this week’s episode, 6.7 “The Broken Man,” another presumed dead character has risen and brought a whole new storyline with him, while Arya’s plan to return to Westeros hits a major snag; Sansa and Jon’s attempts to gather allies against the Boltons is proving to be much more difficult than anticipated; Jaime heads the Lannister army to take back Riverrun for the Freys; and Margaery remains faithful to the High Sparrow and his teachings.

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

On last week’s Game Of Thrones, we got a sneak peak at the origins of the White Walkers; Sansa Stark and half-brother Jon Snow readied to take back Winterfell from Ramsay Bolton; Arya Stark has her new assassin assignment; Theon and Yara Greyjoy fled the Iron Islands with its best ship after their murderous uncle won the Kingsmoot, and Bran Stark completely screwed everything up by visioning into the past and inadvertently creating “Hodor” while also alerting the Night King to his presence in the present.

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

Last week’s Game Of Thrones saw the very first Stark sibling reunion when Sansa Stark escaped the clutches of her sadist husband Ramsay Bolton to make her way to The Wall, where, unbeknownst to her, her half-brother Jon Snow had just been resurrected. It also saw Daenerys Targaryen torch the Dosh Khaleen temple to the ground with the Khals in it, to emerging Unburnt and leading the Dothraki once again.

This week’s episode, Episode 6.5 “The Door,” was the first time this season where I was left with an unsettling feeling, because once again, our favorite characters are in danger, as are ones who we were just beginning to forgive.

TV Review: Game Of Thrones 6.3 “Oathbreaker”
Empress Eve   |  

Game Of Thrones Season 6.3 Daenarys

Game of Thrones
Episode 6.3 “Oathbreaker”
Directed by Dan Sackheim
Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss
Starring Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Carice van Houten, Alfie Allen, Natalie Dormer
HBO
Air date: May 8, 2016

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

Last week’s Season 6 episode of Game Of Thrones started out slow, but ended so insanely awesome with the resurrection of Jon Snow! This is something that has not happened in the books, which means that the TV show is off on its own storyline now. We also saw Ned Stark’s sister, Lyanna, on screen for the first time in a vision shown to Bran, which included a look at a young Hodor back when he could speak coherently.

This week’s installment, 6.3 “Oathbreaker,” brings with it a lot of hope that fans will finally get some answers about the past. In another one of Bran’s visions of the past, we see the battle at the Tower Of Joy, where a young Ned Stark goes to rescue his sister Lyanna. There’s also lots of Jon Snow and the aftermath of his returning to life, including what he experienced in the afterlife, as well as the fate of the traitors who murdered him. Cersei and Jaime plot their revenge; King Tommen is still whining; and Daenarys is on her way to the Khal Widow retirement home, which is not as relaxing as it sounds. Meanwhile, in Meereen, Tyrion, Varys, and the rest of Dany’s crew plan their next move; there’s new surprises in Winterfell with Ramsay Bolton and his bannermen; Arya returns to the House of Black and White; and Sam reveals a new future for Gilly and the baby.
