'Game Of Thrones' Review: 5 Essential Questions Answered By 'Hom
Here are the essential questions answered by “Home:”

What Happened to Bran?

As it turns out, Bran’s time in Off-Screensville has mostly been spent sitting inside a giant tree. Alongside the Three-Eyed Raven dude, he explores visions of the past. It’s actually the cleverest way to make Bran interesting. For so long he’s been the character the most disconnected to the action, but by making him see visions of Ned Stark, Lianna, and the rest of his dead relatives, it connects him better to the mythos of the show. There’s definitely an important reason why Ned and his sister are being reintrod...

The Best Brienne Of Tarth Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

4/28/2016 10:22pm EDT
20 Noble And Badass Brienne Of Tarth Quotes From 'Game Of Throne
'Game of Thrones' hasn't been very kind to its noblest characters over the course of its six seasons on HBO. Eddard Stark was a good man but that didn't stop Joffrey Baratheon from chopping off his head. Eddard's son and wife would soon learn a similar lesson during The Red Wedding. Even the Season 6 premiere reinforced this truth when the honorable Doran Martell and his son was offed by the Sand Snakes. In short, it's pretty clear that being a good person puts you directly into the line of fire in Westeros.

And yet, perhaps the noblest character of all is still standing. Good luck trying ...

The Best Sansa Stark Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

Sansa Stark's 20 Best Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
Sansa Stark's come a long way, baby.

Sansa, the daughter of the late Eddard and Catelyn Stark on HBO's 'Game of Thrones', has arguably had the worst life out of any of the main cast members since she first left Winterfell back in Season One. First, she watched Joffrey behead her father and then take her as his prisoner. Then, the Red Wedding happened. After she finally got out of King's Landing, she watched 'Littlefinger' push her aunt through the moon door and then was shipped back to Winterfell to marry Ramsay Bolton, aka Joffrey 2.0.

That's quite a bit of trauma for one person to deal ...

The Best Lord Varys Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

4/28/2016 5:56pm EDT
20 Clever Lord Varys Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
Lord Varys, better known within King's Landing as "The Spider," is of the most skilled manipulators on HBO's 'Game of Thrones'. During the first few seasons of the show, Varys managed a large network of spies that he used, officially at least, to protect the king and the realm as the "Master of Whisperers". But longtime viewers know that The Spider, played by actor Conleth Hill, often used these connections for his own purposes.

Varys may be an eunuch (which in the world of Westeros means that his, um, manhood has been removed) but his lack of cojones has never stopped him from taking a gr...

The Best 'Littlefinger' Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

4/28/2016 3:58pm EDT
20 Clever Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish Quotes From 'Game Of Thro
Master of Coin, master of deception.

Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish served as the king's treasurer during the early days of HBO's 'Game of Thrones', but he was also a brothel owner who always seemed to be working on a devious plan behind the scenes. Littlefinger, portrayed by actor Aidan Gillen, used his sex business to get information on his political opponents.

'Game of Thrones' is known for its outstanding writing and dialogue but few characters are as clever as Lord Baelish. Whether issuing a veiled threat to an enemy or gently stringing along the next individual to become a chess piece...

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Premiere: Essential Answers From 'The
For nearly a year one question has plagued loyal fans of Game of Thrones. “Did Jon Snow really die?” With clickbait articles, vague interviews, and diligent spoiler hunters, we never got any closer to the answer. This question seemed to overshadow many of the other questions, from the identity of Cersei’s new protector to Sansa’s fate. As the new season premieres, viewers hope to get the answers to his vital question and many more.

Unfortunately, this particular question remains a mystery. Is Jon Snow dead? Yes. Will he stay dead, however, is up in the air. But that doesn’t mean there were...

HBO Releases More Details About 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6
HBO has issued its formal press release regarding the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones, and though it's brief it does include some information that fans may find of interest - including apparent confirmation of the hotly debated character death from last season.

The ten-episode sixth season starts Apr. 24 at 10 p.m., and the press release does tell how many of the show's massive cast will be returning as series regulars.

King Joffrey's 20 Most Evil Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

4/4/2016 12:36pm EDT
20 Evil Quotes From Joffrey Baratheon On 'Game Of Thrones'
In the world of Westeros, It's pretty hard to be a worse ruler than the "Mad King" but Joffrey Baratheon certainly gave it his best shot.

For three-plus seasons of HBO's hit drama 'Game of Thrones', there were few other characters that could draw the ire of fans quite like King Joffrey. That's thanks in part to the acting chops of Jack Gleeson, whose snivelling and spoiled portrayal of the incest-bred child of Cersei and Jamie Lannister got the blood boiling with every vile, terrible line that was spoken.

'Game of Thrones' has no shortage of villains to hate but when Joffrey finally met h...

'It Gives Me Joy To Kill People': 12 Quotes From 'The Hound' On 'Game Of Thrones'

3/23/2016 10:14pm EDT
12 Badass Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane Quotes From 'Game Of Throne
Not even Joffrey Baratheon talked back to The Hound.

Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane is not a man you want to get on the wrong side of. He's a man of few words but when he speaks, you can bet he'll get to the point in short order. With actor Rory McCann at the helm, The Hound could be intense, brooding and vicious.

But underneath that tough exterior, The Hound had a soft spot as well because "a man's gotta have a code." But with the exception of Sansa and Arya Stark, If anyone in the Seven Kingdoms ever noticed Clegane's lighter side, they likely didn't live to tell about it.

Here are 12 ba...

'Not Today': Arya Stark's Best Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

3/22/2016 12:17pm EDT
16 Badass Arya Stark Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
Arya Stark has long been a favorite character for 'Game of Thrones' fans and it's easy to see why. The youngest daughter of the late Ned Stark has a sharp mind and a tongue to match. In a show where female characters are often downtrodden, Arya, portrayed by actress Maisie Williams, has always stood out as a powerful and independent figure, even as a young girl.

Of course, as Tywin Lannister once noticed, Arya can also sometimes be too smart for her own good. That description rang true at the end of Season 5, as Arya went blind in the House of Black and White as a punishment following her ...

'You Win Or You Die': Cersei Lannister Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

The 20 Best Cersei Lannister Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
"I will do things for my family you couldn't imagine..." With that one line, actress Lena Headey cuts to the core of what makes Cersei Lannister tick.

The one-time Queen turned Queen Mother of Westeros has maintained a reputation for being angry and ruthless throughout all five seasons of HBO's award-winning drama 'Game of Thrones'. That said, you can't say she hasn't always had a method behind her madness. Cersei can be cold, calculating, manipulative... but it's always in service of what she thinks is best for her children and the Lannister house.

With plenty of 'GoT' fans getting rea...

18 Dark And Mysterious Melisandre Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
There have been a lot of cruel deaths on HBO's 'Game of Thrones' but arguably none have been more painful to watch than those who have died by the flames of the Red Priestess, Melisandre of Asshai. Melisandre, portrayed by actress Carice Van Houten, believes that Stannis Baratheon is a legendary hero reborn and she will stop at nothing to see that he claims the Iron Throne. Even if she has to burn every last person with King's blood to do it.

Here are 18 of Melisandre's best quotes to get your blood boiling as you wait for 'Game of Thrones' Season 6 premiere on April 24.

17 Best Jon Snow Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
When Season 6 of 'Game of Thrones' returns April 24, all eyes will be glued to the set to find out the fate of Jon Snow, the leader of the Night's Watch who seemingly met his end in the Season 5 finale. But is Jon Snow really dead or are all of those online rumors on point?

Whether he makes a dramatic return or not, there's no doubting the fact that Snow, portrayed by actor Kit Harington, has been one of the most complicated and influential characters on HBO's hit series through its first five seasons. Jon Snow doesn't talk much but when he does, it's always something worth listening to. H...

Ready For 'Game Of Thrones' Season Six? Check Out These 22 Hilar
We love memes, seriously -- who doesn't, so that's why we're sharing this great Game Of Thrones meme video with you.

With season six just around the corner, fans of the show are getting antsy for the new season to premiere (actually most of us are drooling right about now), and we're also waiting very, very patiently (read: hurry up GRRM!) for the next book in the series, "The Winds of Winter", to come out.

If you haven't watched the show and want to, probably skip this. If you're watching and haven't finished season five yet, probably skip this. If you've seen them all (and multiple ti...

'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Chock-Full Of Sex, Twists Like You Won't Believe

'Game Of Thrones' Is Back With Season Six Trailer: Is Jon Snow R
Ready, set, go -- Game of Thrones is back on HBO, and Season 6 is set to air soon! If you allow us to put in our tuppence; all the usual theatrics are back in the new trailer: sex, violence, betrayal -- all what you'd expect in a fantasy drama with elements of alternate histories.

And then, there's a twist of sorts: According to Gizmodo, Kit Harrington's character, Jon Snow, is still somewhat obscure about his role for the sixth season; he is still dropping cryptic hints about his fate in Thrones. However, the writing's on the wall, so to speak.

Spoiler Alert: but not really, sort of --...

HBO Trailer For 2016 Gives New Glimpse Of Daenerys, 'Game Of Thr
We're still months away from 'Game of Thrones' making its return to HBO for Season 6, but the premiere is close enough now for the cable channel to start teasing us with some quick glimpses of what's to come. Last week, we got a short clip with new character the Three-Eyed Raven providing the monologue over pivotal scenes from previous episodes. Now, HBO has released its trailer for 2016 and it includes a much-too-quick glimpse of the Mother of Dragons and two other key characters from the show.

HBO uploaded the clip to Twitter Sunday night, and if past years are any indication, the traile...

'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Teaser Trailer Released

12/5/2015 12:38pm EST
Kit Harington
HBO has released a Game Of Thrones teaser trailer for Season 6 of the popular show. Of course, the short video doesn't offer too much information about what everyone wants to know (is Jon Snow really dead?), but there are a few clues there that could really dictate how the new season is going to go.

According to Tech Insider, the voice that you hear at the beginning of the video belongs to Max von Sydow who plays Bloodraven. Although fans were first introduced to Bloodraven in Season 4, he will be a more prominent character in Season 6. From there, fans see a quick run through of a few ima...

Jon Snow Lives On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Does This 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Art Finally Answer The Jon
The debate over the fate of Jon Snow on 'Game of Thrones' has been raging non-stop among fans since the HBO show's Season 5 finale last spring. But now, the premium cable network may have given fans confirmation about what the character's future holds, courtesy of the first official artwork for Season 6.

The final scene of Season 5 showed Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, being stabbed to death by his comrades over his decision to protect the Wildlings.

But book readers have been saying for years that the character, who is portrayed by actor Kit Harington on the show, may hav...

This Cast Move Has 'Game Of Thrones' Fans Scratching Their Heads

10/9/2015 10:06am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Adds New Red Priestess To The Mix For Season S
'Game of Thrones' fans are scratching their heads this week at the news reported Thursday that the HBO show has cast Melanie Liburd as a Red Priestess for Season 6.

The news, which was first reported by Deadline, is noteworthy because the Emmy-award winning show already has a character many refer to as the Red Priestess in Carice van Houten's Melisandre. Furthermore, many hardcore fans expected Melisandre to play a large role in what may happen in the coming season if those rumors about Jon Snow turn out to be true.

While there's a small possibility that Melisandre has been recast, a mor...

George R.R. Martin: 'Don't Believe Everything You Read Boys And Girls'

10/1/2015 10:02am EDT
George R.R. Martin
Fans of the hit HBO show 'Game of Thrones' have been excited for the last couple of days with multiple outlets reporting that a GoT movie is in development and that the news was confirmed by series creator and author George R.R. Martin himself.

But there's just one problem. That same George R.R. Martin says the story is bogus. It looks like a British tabloid had a bit of fun, and none of the other entertainment sites bothered to fact check before rushing to report the news.

The trouble started when the Daily Star reported an "exclusive" regarding the movie this past Sunday. George R.R. Ma...

Funny, Scary, Cute & Corny: Check Out These Awesome 2015 Hallowe
It's that time of year once again where we all have to decide what we're going to dress up as for Halloween.

While most of the "original" costume ideas usually get all the accolades, current events and pop culture also play a big part in who's dressing up as who (or what).

There's plenty of fodder for coming up with the perfect costume this year thanks to current events like the 2016 presidential race (seriously, most of these people are scary in their own right), the Pope's visit to the U.S. and reality stars.

There's also a handful of animated movie characters that will be popular with...

Is GOT's Jon Snow Dead Or Not?

9/23/2015 9:42am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams On Jon Snow's Fate: 'He's
One of the biggest cliffhangers on the last season of "Game Of Thrones" was whether or not Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) was really dead. Snow appeared to die at the end of season five after being stabbed multiple times -- but of course no one wanted to believe it.

However, Harington was recently spotted in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the hit HBO series is filmed, and fans immediately began speculating that he was there to shoot season six. So he can't be dead, right?

But doesn't he look dead?

Then Harington reportedly told Belgium magazine Humo, "The show is like a double-ed...

Prince Harry & 'Game Of Thrones' Rumors Heat Up

Prince Harry Offered 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Cameo?
Prince Harry is a huge fan of HBO's "Game Of Thrones," and show producers are reportedly looking for a way to give him a cameo on the hugely popular fantasy series.

Say, what?

British website the Daily Star reported the news back in May, and for some reason the rumor is popping up once again.

So Long, Westeros: 'Game Of Thrones' Ending After Season 8

8/3/2015 7:17pm EDT
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones fans would probably live in Westeros forever if they could, but they've got some sad news coming- the series might be ending after Season 8.

According to Us Weekly, Michael Lombardo- that's the president of programming for HBO- dropped that particular bomb at the Television Critic's Association press tour on Thursday.

Lombardo was asked if Season 7 would be the end point for Game of Thrones, and he revealed the show would probably push just one year past that. "Seven seasons and out has never been the conversation," stated Lombardo. "The question is how many beyond the sev...

'Game Of Thrones' May Carry On Longer Than Expected!

Game of Thrones
HBO has revealed that hit series Game of Thrones may be going a bit further than the orignal seven planned seasons by producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

During the pay network's Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour on Thursday, programming president Michael Lombardo said that despite talks in the past about the show ending after its seventh season, which Benioff and Weiss have discussed during interviews, it now looks like eight seasons may be the goal -- and maybe even more than that!

"Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the conversation," Lombardo told critics at the TCA...

Emilia Clarke Dishes On 'Game Of Thrones' Season Six!

Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' is currently flying as high as she was in one of Season 5's final scenes on the back of her dragon, Drogon. She was nominated for an Emmy for her role on the show this past week, one of 'Game of Thrones' 24 total nominations this year.

Clarke sat down with the Los Angeles Times following news of her nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama to discuss her success and that of the show. But it's what Clarke had to say about the show's future that's exciting fans everywhere.

Emmy Nominees And Their Social Media Responses Are Classic

2015 Emmy Award Nominations
After much anticipation, the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations are here -- albeit with a bit of controversy aka funny.

It's that time of the year when your favorite actors, actresses, directors, writers, you name it (still, nothing for the celeb assistants who tolerate their idiosyncratic bosses) are showered with accolades for their perennial roles and endearing projects.

Not surprisingly, HBO and Game of Thrones left everyone and everything in the dust. And, yes, there is always a bit of controversy for Emmy Award nominations. This year's snub-rant award for the 2014-2015 televisio...
