Game of Thrones: The Predictions and the Wolf.

As is standard practice: Spoilers for the latest episode. Wow. While I wouldn’t say the finale was perfect, the end of the seventh season was certainly interesting. “He needs to know the truth about himself.” Let’s start from the start: The Dragonpit/King’s Landing: The lead up to this scene was a nice reminder of which characters were buds with which,… Read more »

Spoilers, spoilers, toil and trouble… Recap of episode six: The North: We got a lot of great dialogue between the fellowship of the wight, including some particularly funny moments between the Hound and Tormund, and Tormund and Gendry.

AS ALWAYS: Spoilers for the previous episode.

As always, SPOILERS BELOW.

The Return of Game of Thrones: Season 7 Predictions

Having re-watched the first six seasons over the course of several months, in bits and pieces, and also having viewed the preview material provided by HBO, and attempting to understand the way D&D and GRRM might play the story out, I’m ready to make some predictions!

Here we go again Compare: Several critics (and several more SJWs) have complained about Suicide Squad. It’s been called all manner of names. To be upfront, I have not seen it and have little interest in doing so (especially at a theater), and so my thoughts are limited to the reaction. It’s been pretty negative.
