‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E6 Recap: Fishing for Dragons

It was all about taking wildcards off the table this week on Game of Thrones. Three separate individuals who have acted as “get out of jail free” cards in the past bit the dust in this penultimate episode of season 7. At this point if characters go “Beyond the Wall,” which happens to be the name…

Game of thrones s7 e5 recap: justice league of westeros

Game of Thrones S7 E5 Recap: Justice League of Westeros

I don’t know how many times I can say this season of Game of Thrones is heating up. The more accurate description this week is cooling down. The focus has shifted to the North, the White Walkers, and the army of the dead. But we didn’t see much of them yet. Instead we had characters…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E4 Recap: Chariots on Fire

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that this expansive group of characters from Game of Thrones are occupying the same world.

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E3 Recap: Between a Rock and a Highgarden

This week’s episode of Game of Thrones was all about new friends and new places. Well when I say new friends, I mean that characters met for the first time and didn’t get along. When I say new places, I mean we saw two ancient castles for the first time and they were promptly taken…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E2 Recap: Euron Trouble

From the end of season six through last week’s season premiere, everything seemed way too optimistic for our favorite characters. That’s not the Game of Thrones way. Episode two, Stormborn, reminded us of that. Daenerys’ first action in her conquest led to a pretty rough defeat on the high seas. But after last week’s introduction,…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E1 Recap: Where’s Walder?

Sure I rewatched all of the seasons and the blu-ray extras. I read all the articles and watched all the trailers on repeat. But it felt like Game of Thrones season 7 may never come. Even as social media swelled this past weekend with random acquaintances posting their favorite quotes in anticipation. It wasn’t until…

A small update on ‘the winds of winter’

A Small Update on ‘The Winds of Winter’

It’s not much, but George R.R. Martin did give us a little insight into when he thinks he will have The Winds of Winter completed. Considering we’ve been waiting nearly six years since the release of A Dance with Dragons in 2011, we’ll take any news. He responded in his usual witty manner to a…

The Things I Do For Love — And Musical Parodies…

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Apollo Theater Chicago. All opinions are 100% mine. What do dragons, mass amounts of murder, and White Walkers have in common? Well, it’s not snappy and entertaining show tunes, that’s for sure, but that didn’t stop the creative team behind Baby Wants Candy and…

‘Game of Thrones’ Getting the ‘Pokémon Go’ Treatment?

The creators of Pokémon Go hope to make a real-world Game of Thrones mobile gaming app. Popular is an understatement when describing what the Pokémon Go app has become around the world. It’s taken over the hands of over 9.5 million users daily, according to Recode. Running with a huge crowd in the middle of central park…

‘game of thrones’ s6 e10 recap: wildfire, treason and plot

‘Game of Thrones’ S6 E10 Recap: Wildfire, Treason and Plot

We’re all used to it. We’ve seen it over and over throughout the years watching Game of Thrones. Characters die, and usually in horrible circumstances. But never have we seen so many characters that we know die in one episode. They are clearing the board for all the main characters to duke it out in…

‘game of thrones’ s6 e9 recap: the glorious bastards

‘Game of Thrones’ S6 E9 Recap: The Glorious Bastards

It’s the battle Game of Thrones has been teasing since the first trailer for season 6. Plus it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for when Ramsay finally picks on someone his own size. The episode titled “Battle of the Bastards” was difficult to watch, yet satisfying. But we have been preparing for the Jon vs….

‘game of thrones’ s6 e8 recap: jaime and brienne gone fishin’

‘Game of Thrones’ S6 E8 Recap: Jaime and Brienne Gone Fishin’

For a storyline that was so mind-bending, Arya’s back and forth struggle with the Faceless Men and the House of Black and White seems to have ended in a pretty straightforward way. The good ol’ kill you with a sword technique. But what wasn’t so straightforward was the rest of the episode, titled “No One.”…

‘game of thrones’ s6 e7 recap: release the hound

‘Game of Thrones’ S6 E7 Recap: Release the Hound

We got a rare pre-credits scene this week on Game of Thrones. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised when it was used to reveal that a presumed dead character, Sandor Clegane/ the Hound, is alive. I picture the show runners sitting around a room of actors whose characters have died and they’re just throwing scripts…
