Did You Spot This Huge 'Game Of Thrones' Jon Snow Hint?
Episode 6 dropped a major stealth bomb
From Esquire UK

Yeah yeah, we know Jon Snow's a Targaryen. That's not even a theory now, it's been established as fact on the show.

But Game of Thrones isn't completely done with the mysteries and sneakiness, it seems, particularly where they apply to the King In The North and dead man walking Jon Snow. But the penultimate episode of Season 7 dropped a major – yet subtle – hint about his future.

It's fair to say that the show is deliberately vague when it comes to magic – partly because too much exposition is boring, partly so they don't paint themselves into a narrative corner further down the line. We don't know the limits of Arya's facey-facey magic, we don't know how Bran's warging and greensight work, we don't know how White Walkers animate the dead… and for the most part it doesn't matter. We trust that either we don't need to know, or that we'll find out later.

Jon Snow, though, is dead.

He died. He was brought back to life by Melisandre – even she doesn't really know how – and somehow he continues to walk about, eat sandwiches and have sex with his aunt like any other perfectly normal person.

Gregor Clegane died (or came very close) and was brought back to silent, lumbering life by Qyburn using his alchemist's science. Beric Dondarrion has been brought back six times the same way as Jon Snow, though as the "six times" thing suggests, he's very capable of dying again, for good.

But is Jon?

It would be reasonable to assume that yes, he's still mortal – like Beric – but that might not actually be the case.

Look again at the scene in episode six where Jon is dragged down into the freezing waters of the lake by the army of wights. He misses the last flight out of town, everyone thinks he's done for and Daenerys and the remainder of the Magnificent Seven all flee the scene on dragonback.

When we cut back, seemingly moments later, Jon pops back up out of the lake, grabs LongClaw and is about to make his last, solitary stand when Uncle Benjen rides to the rescue.

But is that what happened?

When Jon emerges from the lake, the wights have cleared the field. They're on their way to have some well-earned ice lollies and a rub down. How long does it take an army to depart a frozen lake? An hour? Maybe a well-disciplined army could do it in half that. Maybe an army of dead people controlled by a single intelligence could do it in even less.

Let's be super-generous and say that even allowing for slippery ground conditions, stumbling animated corpses and the litter of dozens of lopped-off zombie parts getting underfoot, it takes an army of wights just ten minutes to clear the lake.

That means Jon was underwater for twice as long as any normal human being. Yes, free divers with years of training and preparatory hyperventilation can go for 22 minutes in nice, warm water, wearing Speedos. Jon was in a frozen lake wearing forty pounds of leather, iron and fur.

Here's our point: if the showrunners intended to hint at what we're inferring from the scene, then Jon is either immortal or has a particular superpower.

If he's immortal, that could solve the "break the wheel" problem of the show's resolution - namely, how do the good guys stop the endless cycle of tyrants running Westeros? A good king or queen can give birth to a terrible one, and parliamentary democracy would seem a little way off yet. Monarchy is bad, in the long run.

But by having an immortal benign dictator - a good king forever - the land gets a happy ever after, even if Jon would prefer otherwise. You know he'll do his duty.

Let's say he's not immortal, though - maybe be's immune to ice in the way that his auntie is immune to fire. It would be a nice symmetry and a useful skill in the coming battle with the Night King and his ENORMOUS ICE-BREATHING DRAGON.

Well, his blue-fire breathing ice dragon. It's not totally clear what Viserion is now.

Anyway: Jon Snow. The Snow Man. It's there in the name, FFS.

‘Game of Thrones’: Bold Predictions for Season 8
[The Cheat Sheet]
We might have to wait until 2019 for the final season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones.' When it returns, we should expect bloodbaths, even longer episodes, and a ridiculously high casualty rate.

The seventh season of HBO’s sensational hit, Game of Thrones, was an emotional roller coaster ride that has left fans desperately anticipating the eighth and final season. Though we probably won’t see Season 8 until 2019, the six-episode final season will be one for the history books. With all that went down in Westeros in “The Dragon and the Wolf,” it seems rather alarming that GoT showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Wiess, will wrap everything up neatly in just six weeks. From the way that everything panned out in Season 7, we are certain that things will be moving at a pace unlike anything we’ve seen on television before.

As the Long Night comes bearing down on Westeros, we know that Daenerys Targaryen and her new love (who also just happens to be her nephew), Jon Snow, are headed to Winterfell together. Jon has bent the knee to the Dragon Queen so that they might defend the North against the White Walkers and their terrifying Army of the Dead. Though the duo seemed prepared for war, they don’t yet realize that the Wall — which has protected Westeros for thousands of years — has come crashing down.

It’s also unclear at this point if the Northern people will accept Dany as their new queen. (We’re going to take a wild guess on this one and assume it’ll be a “No” from most Northerners.) It will be particularly intriguing to see how Jon’s sisters, Arya and Sansa Stark, react to his new blond-haired queen.

Dany and Jon aren’t the only ones preparing for an impending blood bath. Queen Cersei Lannister (who is currently pregnant with twin brother Jaime Lannister’s baby) is sitting on the Iron Throne in King’s Landing, determined to remain in power. Though she’s now aware of the impending threat from beyond the Wall, Cersei is intent on holding on to her position. With both of her brothers headed North to defend Westeros against the Army of the Dead, Cersei might be the only Lannister on the wrong side of history — at least, for now.

Following that explosive finale, here are nine bold predictions for the final season of Game of Thrones. After all, everything could change in an instant.

1. Jon will kill Daenerys

2. Tyrion returns to Cersei’s side

3. Jaime will murder his twin

4. Cersei might die in childbirth

5. A bloodbath

6. Tormund lives

7. Theon and Yara get their revenge

8. Bran is the Night King

9. Dany is pregnant

HBO Needs to Chill With the ‘Game of Thrones’ Prequels
Sure, only one of the five will probably make it to air. But this is getting excessive.
Ira Madison III

There are currently five Game of Thrones prequels in development at HBO, but I can’t even get a right swipe on Tinder.

Entertainment Weekly broke the news Thursday that a fifth prequel series to the popular dragon opera will be developed by Game of Thrones writer and co-executive producer Bryan Cogman. He developed the project closely with George R.R. Martin himself, so you know that The Winds of Winter isn’t coming out any damn time soon.

The author took to his blog to gush about the collaboration: “Bryan Cogman should need no introduction for any Game of Thrones fan. He’s been part of the show since the beginning... since before the beginning, actually, since he was first hired as assistant to David Benioff and D.B Weiss way before the series got on the air, before even the pilot had been filmed. From those humble beginnings, he advanced to staff writer, to story editor, to co-producer and producer and supervising producer. Less formally, he has also been Game of Thrones’ ‘Keeper of the Lore,’ the guy who knew the canon better than anyone (except me, though sometimes I am not even sure of that). He’s written more episodes of Game of Thrones than anyone but Dan & David... including some of our very best ones. If D&D have been the kings of Westeros for these past seven seasons, Bryan Cogman has surely been the Prince of Dragonstone.”

Martin, who had coyly mentioned the fifth series months ago (prompting HBO’s President of Programming, Casey Bloys, to pretend it wasn’t happening), declined to share plot details for the series, but did offer that, “…like the other pilots, it will be a prequel rather than sequel, a successor rather than a spinoff. Bryan’s series will be an adaptation, and one that will thrill most fans of the books, I think, set during a very exciting period of Westeros history. And I’ll be working with him every step of the way; we’re going to be co-creating the show.”

HBO is also currently developing four other prequels from writers Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class), Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), and Carly Wray (Mad Men). Game of Thrones showrunners Benioff and Weiss aren’t developing the shows, presumably, because they can’t wait to get their hands on their antebellum antics. The details of these all are being kept mum, but we’ve been assured that they will all be prequels featuring new actors and none of the cast members from the original Game of Thrones.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in July, Bloys said: “You know the odds in development. I think that is probably unlikely. I was at Touchstone during Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. They had a hit show and they aired four in a week. This show is very special. I’m not looking to have as many as possible. My sense right now is we would be very lucky if one of the four rises to the level that we have set. Now, theoretically, what if they’re all great? That’s a high-class problem that I’ll solve when it comes to that. But knowing what we know about the development process, that’s why we wanted to increase our odds. But I do not see a scenario where we have more than one. But again, high-class problem.”

I mean, this is all good for Bloys, but can we also admit that it’s a lot of nonsense? Most shows that sell rarely get picked up, yes, but none of these shows have even sold. They’re not even outlined yet. They’re ideas that HBO is developing, much like the maybe forthcoming Confederate. And, similar to HBO dropping that news because they wanted to entice viewers who will wonder what the hell they’re gonna watch on the premium cable network after Game of Thrones is over, they’re doing the same thing with these five spinoffs.

Brad Pitt Bids $120,000 to Watch ‘Game of Thrones’ With Emilia Clarke

Brad Pitt on Saturday night bid $120,000 to watch a Game of Thrones episode with Emilia Clarke, an actress on the HBO series. But Pitt was outbid at the charity auction, and the final bid was $160,000. The auction was held at Sean Penn’s annual charity gala to support humanitarian aid in Haiti at Milk Studios in Los Angeles. Pitt outbid himself at one point after another actor on the show, Kit Harington, offered to join Clarke for the episode viewing.
