You didn’t expect the Game of Thrones merch train to stop now that the series is over, did you? Not that we’re complaining — and with this most recent release, neither will memorabilia collectors and scotch connoisseurs who want to add to their liquor cabinets.
As usual, it doesn’t take much for people to twist a Game of Thrones-related interview out of proportion these days. Frankly, I’ve seen a lot of outlets repurposing George R.R. Martin’s new interview with The Guardian into clickbaitish, misleading headlines. And that’s disappointing because it’s really a thoughtful and interesting discussion with the author who is frank about his relationship with his work, fandom and the inadvertent effect the show had on his process.

The Emmys will be awarded next month, and Game of Thrones is well positioned to take home a considerable number of trophies with its historic 32 nominations. Miguel Sapochnik has an excellent chance at winning in the Outstanding Directing category for “The Long Night,” having previously won in 2016 for “Battle of the Bastards.” In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sapochnik shares some of the behind the scenes work involved in bringing the battle of Winterfell to life.
