And lo, Game of Thrones has come to yet another end with last night’s “The Winds of Winter,” an explosive climax with a higher body count than usual, thanks to Cersei’s fiery wiles. One death certainly hit harder than all the rest, though apparently the series-long star had asked for an even earlier end to their character.
Now that we’ve put that big Hodor twist (and hopefully its jokes) behind us, Game of Thrones has even more “Blood of My Blood” to spill by the looks of next Sunday’s photos. Arya seems ready to complete her first assassination, while a deadly public conflict with the High Sparrow looms, but is another big death waiting in the wings?
Game of Thrones whipped fans into a fiery frenzy with its second full trailer for Season 6, revealing several surprise returns and the biggest dragons yet, among other Snow-y secrets. We couldn’t help but dive way deeper into each frame of footage. So what new secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
Game of Thrones has been less than kind to even the strongest of female characters over the years, and if a new report is to be believed, Season 6 might finally see the women of Westeros come out ahead.

At the northwest base of Japan’s Mount Fuji sits a forest by the name of Aokigahara, a dense wood said to possess mythical qualities by the locals. Known worldwide as the “suicide forest,” the area allegedly teems with the unrestful spirits of the wayward souls who go there to take their own lives — 57 self-inflicted deaths were reported from Aokigahara in 2010. The forest has historically been linked to Japanese mythology, rumored to foster demons who terrorize travelers foolish enough to pass through the forbidding woods.
Thanks to her breakout role on Game of Thrones, we’ve been seeing a bit more of Natalie Dormer. In addition to her supporting role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, the actress is striking out on her own with her first leading film role in The Forest. A new trailer for the upcoming horror film has arrived, which blends elements from both Japanese and American horror together for a seemingly intriguing ghost story.
As if Comic Con 2015’s Friday schedule in Hall H weren’t enough of a bloodbath between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Walking Dead, in comes Game of Thrones for the (gratuitous and controversial) kill. HBO’s flagship drama will again ascend Comic-Con’s throne with a full panel, this time hosted by Seth Meyers.
'Game of Thrones' Season 5 puts the women in power as alliances shift, characters converge and airplane-sized dragons scorch the skies of George R.R. Martin's Westeros. Our early spoiler-free review, before the HBO premiere on April 12!
As if you needed another reason to be annoyed by white male privilege and spoiled rich kids, the first trailer for The Riot Club has arrived. The film unites two male stars from two big YA movie franchises—Sam Claflin from The Hunger Games and Max Irons from Divergent—which should be an attractive draw for the younger female audience. And to appeal to the more discerning movie-goer, The Riot Club comes from director Lone Scherfig, who previously helmed An Education.
You may or may not have noticed, but there’s an invasion afoot in Hollywood, and many of this past year’s most talked-about stars during awards season have been—gasp!—British.
