Like Star Trek before it, Game of Thrones has given eager fans plenty to decipher by the creation of its own unique languages, which themselves occasionally offer easter eggs into the mythology. One such secret arrived with Sunday’s death-laden Season 6 episode, as fans managed to translate the Valyrian prayer Melisandre utilized to resurrect … well, [SPOILER].
It seems almost silly to discuss Sunday’s Game of Thrones without pointing toward the inevitable obvious, that the character everyone thought would come back to life … came back to life. Viewers perhaps weren’t expecting the twist quite so soon, but now it seems the erstwhile corpse of Jon Snow may put in more time with Season 6 than any prior year.

There’s a long bright dark ahead for the criminal HBO drama, but maybe time’s just a flat circle, man.
The Leftovers Season 2 didn’t leave us with any indication that the Garvey family’s time in Miracle had come to an end, though with Season 3 confirmed as the show’s last, the Damon Lindelof rapture drama is in for another tectonic shift. The Leftovers will move the final chapter to Australia, both in story and production.
The countdown to Jon Snow’s Game of Thrones return continues after this past Sunday’s premiere, but the coming weekend has at least four other familiar faces to bring “Home.” Not only will we return to the Iron Islands in the latest photos, but also catch up with Bran and the Reeds up north.
Unless you’ve been living on Mars for the last week, in a cave, with your eyes shut and your fingers in your ears, you may have heard something of Beyoncé’s visual album event, Lemonade. It’s … gotten a bit of coverage, here and there. Now, it may even get an Emmy, as HBO will submit the hour-long special for Emmy consideration, bringing Beyoncé one step closer to that EGOT.
