Another Comic-Con has come and gone and with it comes new merchandise, cast interviews, and fellow fans sharing in the excitement Game of Thrones has brought us all. It’s the type of event that truly makes being a fan worthwhile and, in today’s digital age, even those who are unable to attend can still make up for it with a little help from your friends at WOTW!
The journey to Comic-Con begins on the streets of New York City where fans arrived in style representing your favorite house sigils on the Game of Thrones shuttle:

What Comic-Con would be complete without a panel? The lovely Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell), and Keisha Castle-Hughes (Obara Sand) have some speculations on season 6 and the massive amount of locations used for shooting.
UPDATE: The full panel is now available online.
Firstly, Hughes has some words regarding her dearly departed father, Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) and his epic duel with The Mountain:
I found out that I was playing one of his daughters, and I was freaking out when I watched that episode. My roommate at the time was like, ‘It’s just a TV show, why are you so upset?’ Because that’s my dad!
Dormer also chips in saying:
It’s such an amazing, well-choreographed fight, Pedro almost refused to let his stunt double do any of it. He practiced again and again. When you watch that show and you know how much effort he put it into it, only to be…
…yeah, crushed like a grape. It’s heartbreaking, we know, but that’s why we love Game of Thrones.
Obviously the plot details for Season 6 are guarded by dragons so the cast couldn’t say much but they were free to speculate…
Hughes admits she’d love to meet Arya saying “For very selfish reasons; she’s my favorite character” while Dormer would love a chance to play games with Ramsay and test her wits (“Here, drink this”) but Finn Jones by far had the best response:
I think Loras would probably turn Jon Snow gay, I’d like to see that happen. ‘You know nothing, Jon Snow.’ I’d teach him a thing or two.
His comment, of course, received tremendous applause. He also speculates about the end of the saga:
I think there will be a huge battle between ice and fire, I think ice and fire will completely destroy themselves in this great war, destroy all of Westeros, and I think a lot of people will die. Out of the ashes will come the people who will make Westeros anew. Maybe Bran, Hodor, Brienne, Tyrion.
So no Margaery or Loras, huh? Well, at least Hodor made the cut. For more, head on over to EW!
There you have it, folks! Now go grab some merchandise and leave us a comment letting us know what you think!
