Winter is here. It arrived in full force during the packed Game of Thrones Season 6 finale "Winds of Winter," and the landscape of the show has seismically changed. Bells did not ring in Kings' Landing as predicted last week. Instead, they were destroyed by the actions of Cersei. She set up a trap, ...

It was a night of jubilation in Sunday night's Game of Thrones episode 'Battle of Bastards.' While there is always the moral grey area of watching a character brutally die, the case of Ramsay Bolton warrants cheering. As the subtle episode title would suggest, the majority of the episode revolves a...

I’m pretty sure all “Game of Thrones” fans were on the same page when they assumed HBO accidentally started playing a random movie instead of last night’s episode, “The Broken Man.” The scene was of an idyllic village, where people worked together happily — sounds like nothing out of the...

“Game of Thrones” fans were still recovering from the deep wound left by last week’s episode (I will never hear ‘hold the door’ without being heartbroken again), only to have to endure not being able to watch Jon Snow this week. Will this show ever give its fans a break? Thankfully, anoth...

Hold the door. You can’t laugh anymore. Hodor, a character that seemed to be literally created as an extra body, has now ascended into the realm of tragedy and incredible storytelling. Episode five’s climax comes with Hodor helping Bran and Meera escape The Night’s King and his army of extras from ...

It's about time we got some good news for some down and nearly out characters on "Game of Thrones." First, the long awaited Stark reunion. For a season fraught with waiting and long journeys, Sansa sure seemed to make it to Castle Black with Brienne relatively quickly - but never mind that. Sans...

While “Oathbreaker” was one of the most anticipated episodes of this season for me, it seemed to be composed of filler plots to set up larger action in episodes to come. Varys is setting up a new spy organization in Meereen, Cersei and Jaime are getting ready to take on anyone in their way an...

I never thought I would miss a character I didn’t really care about so much — but Bran has finally returned to “Game of Thrones,” along with Hodor, Meera and the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow). His first scene shows his looking at his father’s past, as we see young Ned Stark interacting with...

If "Game of Thrones," the epic HBO fantasy series, is known for anything, it's the violent, violent deaths that grace viewers screens, giving them joy (when it's Joffrey) and breaking their hearts (Shireen Baratheon) on a weekly basis. The series premieres April 24, and will pass by where the last...
