game of thrones jon snow daenerys targaryen

Fan theories and predictions have been swirling around Game of Thrones ever since the show diverged from the books in Season 5. Here are some of the biggest theories and plot point predictions and whether or not we think they hold any weight. Cersei is not actually pregnant: Likely Cersei is one of the best liars ever conceived. She’ll do anything to get her way, including misleading those around her. And what better way to gain sympathy than pretending to be pregnant? Daenerys is pregnant: Likely If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Game of Thrones, it’s that if something is said repeatedly throughout theRead More →

It’s that time of year where many people find themselves shopping outside their comfort zones in order to get the perfect (or at least acceptable) gift for that one nerdy friend. Whether it’s a coworker you got assigned for Secret Santa, a grandchild who won’t stop talking about… something (you’re not sure what), or one of your best friends that’s just really into a different fandom, nerds are everywhere.

Content warning: this post contains mentions of sexual violence and rape. Do you remember that Bryan Adams song from the 90s? (Everything I Do) I Do It for You? That song could easily describe Jaime Lannister’s feeling for his twin sister Cersei. Though he comes off as confident and cocky at the beginning of the show, every major action of his can be traced back to his love for Cersei. Shove a 10-year-old boy out a window? Done to hide Cersei’s secret. Beat his own cousin to death in order to escape from the Stark’s camp? Done so he can get back to Cersei. RefuseRead More →

game of thrones sansa stark

It’s easy to argue that Sansa Stark transformed more than any other character in Game of Thrones. She’s gone from a naive brat to a wise leader. Some of this is simply because of all the horrible things that have happened to her, but it’s also because she had the two best teachers that Westeros could offer — Cersei Lannister and Petyr Baelish (aka Littlefinger). It would be easy for someone to spend time around these two characters and not learn a thing. So, what makes Sansa a good student? She’s a good listener. Aspiring Princess When the show begins Sansa wants nothing more thanRead More →
