Game of Thrones finales are always among the most intense of the bunch, killing off characters left and right. Last night’s “Mother’s Mercy” was no different … right up until what appeared to be the biggest death of the entire series. Now, creator George R.R. Martin, producers and the actor in question all give their take on whether or not that character really bought the big one.

Game of Thrones Season 5 has come to the close of its most brutal season yet, dispensing precious little “Mother’s Mercy” on any of its core characters. Major, major characters suffered the pointy end of a blade, while others met surprise ends, stripped away their sins, or made a surprise return. Find out every character’s fate by our full review!
It’s not just the theme song from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt that gets stuck in everyone’s heads (the mere mention of it guarantees it won’t leave your brain for at least a week) — let’s not forget Titus Andromedon’s amazing pop song and accompanying video for “Peeno Noir.” In the spirit of all that is fierce, a fan has made a mashup combining Titus’ song with one of our favorite secondary Game of Thrones characters: Jaqen H’ghar.
The ubiquitous popularity and controversy of HBO’s Game of Thrones provides more and more discussion fodder with each week, though the franchise’s literary creator has had his fill. Weary of fans beleaguering him to comment on the HBO series’ most recent shockers, George R.R. Martin would like you to leave him alone, please. Books don’t write themselves!
It’s that time again, as Game of Thrones has murdered its way through another 9 episodes, leaving us with Sunday Season 5 finale “Mother’s Mercy.” HBO would be hard-pressed to top this past weekend’s climactic “Dance of Dragons,” but what do the full set of finale photos reveal about Daenerys’ whereabouts?
It’s hard to imagine anything about this Sunday’s coming Game of Thrones finale shocking worse than the fiery end of last week’s “Dance of Dragons,” but we wouldn’t put it past Melisandre’s portrayer Carice van Houten. Now, the actress speaks out on the horrible fates befalling Shireen and Sansa, while series creator George R.R. Martin reveals yet another character he wants to see brought into the story.
Game of Thrones has courted more and more controversy with each passing hour outdoing the prior for depraved violence, but a fiery end from Sunday’s “The Dance of Dragons” may have taken the cake. Now, showrunner Dan Weiss defends the brutal death, claiming “it’s supposed to be awful.”
Last week's Game of Thrones unleashed plenty of frozen horrors at "Hardhome," but the pendulum swung from ice to fire for "The Dance of Dragons." Not only did fire reign at Daenerys' predictably disastrous and tournament, but so too did flames bring us the series most gruesome, difficult scene to date. Our full review!
As has increasingly become the case with each Game of Thrones season, the HBO series’ frequent reliance on sexual violence against women dominates the conversation. This year added Sansa Stark’s plight to last year’s muddled take on Jaime and Cersei, and series creator George R.R. Martin has again come to defend the show’s inherent brutality, suggesting an egalitarian utopia would make for “a boring book.”
Casting details of Game of Thrones Season 6 have already made their way online before the July production start, and with it locations have begun to eke out as well.
