From the Maester’s Desk – Endgame: Lannisters Always Pay Their Debts

cersei2

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is still a year away at least, but in the meantime we have plenty of material to theorize about the endgame for the surviving characters of the series.

Heroes, villains and innocent people have died in a plethora of different ways: poisoned, cut down, burned, stabbed, beheaded and even eaten by dogs, and that’s just off the top of my head! But the Lannister siblings are still around, ever since the very beginning of  the series, and they have changed quite a lot since then.

We’re pretty sure that figure skating isn’t a thing in Westeros — although if the Night King gets his way, the whole place will be primed for it — but if it were, German figure skater Paul Fentz would’ve wowed the royals with his tribute to the Kingslayer himself during the men’s long program competition Friday night in this year’s Winter Olympics.

Love, Fear and Humanity: The Ballad of Grey Worm and Missandei

GreyWormMissandei

When you step back and take in Game of Thrones’ cast of thousands, you can really appreciate how exceptional Grey Worm and Missandei are. It’s not just that they’re one of the few couples to have survived this long (though holy moly the mortality rate for romance is high on this show), but rather because their shared relational arc touches on some of Game of Thrones’ bleakest concepts yet actually offers a hopeful outlook.

Admit it – every time you see ‘Game of Thrones season 8’ in the headline, you get excited that there’s going to be some news, or photos, or…something! Well, dear reader, you’re not alone; many share that quest for knowledge alongside you! However, we’ll take any news we can get our hands on these days, given the extraordinary vows of secrecy the cast has seemingly solemnly sworn. As you all know, no matter the topic, if there is an interview held with someone even remotely associated with Game of Thrones, conversation will inevitably turn to it. Conveniently for us, it just so happens that the inevitable happened in a recent interview with Maisie Williams (Arya Stark!)

Drogon’s fiery destruction of the Lannister army in “The Spoils of War” took home an award from the 2017 Visual Effects Society’s annual awards.

Game of Thrones isn’t called an award-winning series for nothing, and it’s not just the people in front of the camera who make it so — direction, writing, cinematography and more have all taken home accolades for the show. That trend continues for the 2017-18 awards season with Thrones’ latest wins from the Visual Effects Society (VES) annual awards.

The Long Night, and possibly a Long March

WightGiants

With the breaching of the ancient Wall that spans the northern frontier of the Seven Kingdoms, the realms of men are facing another Long Night.

The supernatural White Walkers and their undead army are shambling southwards through an Eastwatch-by-the-Sea sized gap in the no-longer impassable barrier, and if the old stories are to be believed, things look dire for Westeros.

But just how dire might the situation be? Probably pretty dire. If only we could hear the opinions of the First Men from thousands of years ago.

*Before we get any further into this article, this is going to be speculation about what could happen in regards to the White Walkers invasion of Westeros. I’ve been avoiding reading details from the production so I could write this post in a spoiler-free manner, so if you, dear reader, are trying to avoid confirmed plot details you won’t find any here. You’ll just find my guesses. If you are deep into the spoiler weeds already, do me a favor and don’t include any such details in the comments. Not for my benefit so much, but for anyone else reading along.*
