4 days ago   |   By The Verge

The final season of Game of Thrones is wrapping up over the next few weeks, but fans of Westworld (HBO's other star-studded, high-profile genre show) are still in for a bit of a wait, with WarnerMedia Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt and HBO president of programming Casey Bloys confirming to Deadline that the series won't return until 2020.
There's been speculation for a while that Westworld wouldn't be back in 2019, but now it's official. The news also raises a question - with Game of Thrones ending and Westworld not on the schedule for a year or more, what will HBO's new marquee...

Here's A Game Of Thrones Season 8 Theory Involving Cersei's Baby, Tyrion, And Dany We Haven't Heard Yet

4 days ago   |   By GameSpot

Cersei's pregnancy is one of the most unpredictable plotlines in the final season of Game of Thrones. Is the Lannister queen really pregnant? There's plenty of evidence to go either way. But one theory has emerged as our favorite overall, and it involves a real pregnancy, a treacherous turn from Tyrion, and a bargain that Daenerys is not going to be happy about, should she ever find out about it. First, let's get this out of the way: It's highly likely that Cersei is lying about her pregnancy. Besides her generally duplicitous nature and the fact that she manipulates everyone around her...

Game Of Thrones: What Did Arya Ask Gendry To Make For Her?

4 days ago   |   By GameSpot

We got a lot of long-awaited reunions in the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones. Characters who haven't seen each other in years, or at least a few seasons, met back up again. Sometimes those reunions were happy ones, while others were decidedly less so (Jaime locking eyes with Bran was a bit chilling). Arya and Gendry seeing each other in the premiere for the first time since Season 2 fell into the first category. The meeting between the two friends finds both having changed significantly. Arya is now a consummate fighter and assassin with the power of the Faceless Men, while Gendry is...

If you didn't watch Winterfell - the first episode of season 8 - be warned that spoilers will follow. This is not going to be a detailed breakdown of the episode, but we're not...
