‘Game of Thrones’: The Show’s Third Insane Twist Is Coming, and It Better Be a Doozy

‘Game of Thrones’: The Show’s Third Insane Twist Is Coming, and It Better Be a Doozy
[Editor’s Note: The following contains potential spoilers for the final two episodes of “Game of Thrones.”]

By now, many parts of adapting “Game of Thrones” from page to screen has become television production lore. For example, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had initially won over George R.R. Martin to let them adapt his books by telling him the true identity of Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) mother, even though it hadn’t been revealed in the books yet. But the clues were all there for devotees of the novels.

And then there’s the matter of the three twists. Back in a 2016 interview with EW, the showrunners said that Martin had sat down with them to give a general outline of the rest of his unwritten novels since the show had surpassed the books plotwise in Season 6. As part of this rough sketch, he revealed three “holy shit” moments. Two have already come to pass: The burning of Shireen Baratheon (Kerry Ingram

Paul Kaye interview: Dennis Pennis, Game Of Thrones, Zapped

Louisa Mellor Oct 19, 2017

We chatted to actor Paul Kaye about playing wizards, the musical Matilda, and his move from celebrity satire to serious drama…

Main image credit: Jordan Katz-Kaye

“Bitterness, really” is Paul Kaye’s explanation of what drove his satirical red-carpet interviewer Dennis Pennis in the nineties. “I’d hit thirty, I’d sort of failed as a musician, I’d failed as an artist I felt at the time.” Ambushing Hollywood’s elite in the persona of a brash, punk nuisance wasn’t Kaye’s first choice for stardom, he admits. “It wasn’t how I expected to forge a career. Of all the things I thought I’d end up doing, it wasn’t that.”

‘Game of Thrones’ Finale: Why Killing a Major Character Could Save Season 7 — Or Ruin Season 8

‘Game of Thrones’ Finale: Why Killing a Major Character Could Save Season 7 — Or Ruin Season 8
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7 through Episode 6.]

The best thing and the worst thing that can happen in the “Game of Thrones” finale is one and the same: A major character dies.

From the fan fiction coupling of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenarys (Emilia Clarke) to back-to-back dragon battles with no notable (human) casualties, the truncated penultimate season has offered much in the way of elegant spectacle and little in the way of emotional resonance. It’s also been agonizingly predictable. Arya’s (Maisie Williams) opening assassination of House Frey may be the most successful surprise, and even her revelation felt inevitable as soon as the wine came out.

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Carice van Houten: Melisandre Wants to ‘Witness’ Jon Snow’s Meeting With Daenerys

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Carice van Houten: Melisandre Wants to ‘Witness’ Jon Snow’s Meeting With Daenerys
Six weeks after giving birth to her first child, actress Carice van Houten was in Spain, playing Melisandre, speaking High Valyrian and trying to convince the Mother of Dragons to make a key ally.

“It’s funny because I just had a baby six weeks before, so it was a really weird transition,” van Houten said in an interview with IndieWire. “To come from that little bubble, my little baby bubble, into this ‘Game of Thrones’ world and the first time to work again — [Melisandre had] gone through so much development in one season, it almost feels like I’m a different character. I can play her differently now a little bit.”

Melisandre's Big Twist Explained by Game of Thrones Director

In the nine long months that spanned between the Season 5 finale and last night's Season 6 premiere of Game of Thrones, countless theories and rumors spread throughout the Internet that covered everything from the fates of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), to the return of Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) and much more. Just a few weeks ago, HBO finally revealed the title of the Season 6 premiere, The Red Woman, an obvious reference to Melisandre (Carice Van Houten). Now we finally know why the episode was entitled The Red Woman, with the final moments revealing a shocking twist, which director Jeremy Podeswa and actress Carice Van Houten speak about in a new interview. Be warned, if you didn't watch The Red Woman last night, there will be massive Spoilers below.

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Has an Unusually Insecure Melisandre

One of the biggest theories to spring out of the Game of Thrones' Season 5 finale, Mothers Mercy, was that the Red Priestess, a.k.a. Melisandre (Carice van Houten), may be able to use her supernatural powers to resurrect both Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and her leader Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane). It doesn't seem like that will happen, though, with the new trailer that surfaced last month featuring Melisandre telling Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) that the "great victory" she saw in the fire was all a lie. Entertainment Weekly caught up with Carice van Houten, who teased that fans will see a much different side of Melisandre in Season 6.

"The arc of my character is finally going into a different direction. It's changing and I really like it. We see her from a really different side of her now. We see somebody whose whole belief system is tumbling down.

'Game of Thrones': Stannis Actor Really Hated Playing the Role

'Game of Thrones': Stannis Actor Really Hated Playing the Role
From Day One, Game of Thrones has had both a huge fan base, and its fair share of detractors, who spoke out about the show's controversial themes such as incestual relationships, along with the rape of several characters, graphic nudity and the brutal violence featured in the series. As fans get ready for Season 6, debuting Sunday, April 24 at 9 Pm Et on HBO, there has been very little we know about the new season, since the show has caught up with the George R.R. Martin books. But there's one character we know won't be returning, Stephen Dillane's Stannis Baratheon, who was killed by Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in the Season 5 finale Mother's Mercy. The actor revealed in an interview with Liberation that he was never really interested in the show to begin with.

"Game of Thrones" Season Five Finale Recap & Review: "Mother's Mercy"

A bold new era has begun on "Game of Thrones". We are now (with a few exceptions) all on the same page. The major events book readers have kept under wraps for as long as they could, have played out on screen. With much of season five carrying the trend of diverting from the novels towards downright invention, the discussion surrounding the show has become more complex. Now that the show has delivered on many of this season's promises, there is a lot to talk about. No one will consider "Mother's Mercy" an optimistic or hopeful episode and Stannis (Stephen Dillane) sets the tone. After his horrific actions seem to have paid off in the form of a thaw, he is quickly dealt three massive blows that could only be interpreted as cosmic retribution. His men have abandoned him, his wife has abandoned him, and his lord has abandoned him

Game of Thrones Finale Recap: 'Mother's Mercy'
Six. Six Game of Thrones characters died in the season 5 finale, "Mother's Mercy." And one of those deaths marks arguably the show's greatest character loss yet (we felt every gut stab). Oh, and Arya (Maisie Williams) is blind. Shireen (Kerry Ingram) is still dead. Cersei (Lena Headey) just totally redefined a term for walking home after a hookup. And –

There is so much more. The finale followed two extreme, full-throttle episodes, and some may have expected Sunday's episode to take a breather and hit the brakes. Instead, Thrones continued the same relentless pace and emotional magnitude for its finale. Taken together,

Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 9 review: The Dance Of Dragons

Game Of Thrones was equal parts thrilling and anguishing this week. Here's Ron's The Dance Of Dragons review...

This review contains spoilers.

5.9 The Dance Of Dragons

When you have a show as good as last week's episode of Game of Thrones, it's going to be hard to top. I thought Hardhome was flawlessly executed, exciting, well-staged, featured great-looking special effects, and did a wonderful job of adding character to a bunch of wildlings we've never met before so that we cared when they were inevitably killed by the White Walkers. Without a lot of familiar characters to lean on, the show pulled off a staggering high-wire act that resulted in a thrilling hour of television.

In that sense, The Dance of Dragons has a lot to do to meet that high water mark, and maintain the tradition that the ninth episode of a season is the best episode of the season.

Spoilers: Liam Cunningham On The Horrific Events Of Last Night's Game Of Thrones

It seems as if someone is always complaining that Game Of Thrones has "gone too far" for whatever reason, but last night's penultimate season 5 episode really was hard to stomach. In fact, it was probably the most disturbing, heartbreaking moment of the show's entire run so far - and yes, that includes the Red Wedding. Convinced by Melisandre that the only way he'll defeat his enemies and sit on the Iron Thrones is by offering up a king's blood sacrifice to the Red God, Stannis Baratheon does the unimaginable and burns his own daughter alive. In a world populated by some very bad people, Shireen (Kerry Ingram) was a genuine ray of light, and to see (well, hear) her suffer and die like that was devastating. One man who's going to be profoundly affected by her loss is Davos Seaworth, who loved the greyscale-afflicted child like a daughter. Actor Liam Cunningham

TV Review: Game Of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 9: The Dance of Dragons [HBO]

HBO’s Game of Thrones The Dance of Dragons TV Show Review. Game of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 9: The Dance of Dragons is the penultimate episode of season five. Instead of matching the visual spectacle of last week’s exceptional episode, The Dance of Dragon’s took viewers on a remarkable emotional journey that reached the exhilarating highs and soul crushing lows that Game of Thrones is famous for.

Game of Thrones is the only series on the air that could spend an episode dancing along the precipice of murdering a child and have viewers not even doubt that said child will meet a gruesome end. The Dance of Dragons provided another example of the tension and sense of dread a show can create when an audience accepts that no character is safe from death. As much as we all hoped that Shireen (Kerry Ingram) would escape Melisandre’s (Carice van Houton) sacrifice,

The Case for Stannis Baratheon – Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 9 recap

“A Dance of Dragons…” Stannis (Stephen Dillane) asks Shireen (Kerry Ingram), confused about her book’s title. “Why’s that a dance?” “It’s just what they call it,” she replies, citing the name’s poetic quality.

“Doesn’t make much sense…” Stannis sighs.

The exchange says a lot about Stannis’ character. He’s a literal man, oblivious to the subtleties of metaphor and simile; a brilliant military commander who works in strategies and flanks and formations. Only recently, he’s had to adapt to a new, strange tactic, one that operates outside his rational comfort: magic.

And in The Dance of Dragons, the ninth episode in the fifth season of Game of Thrones, this practice reaches its apex. Stannis sacrifices his beloved daughter to the Lord of Light.

“I like my daughters well done.”

Looking back on season five, you can’t say it’s a surprise. Princess Shireen

"Game of Thrones" delivered a heartbreaking, gut-wrenching and totally "Game of Thrones"-esque twist in Sunday's "The Dance of Dragons."

After Ramsay Bolton's 20 men managed (off camera) to hit Stannis Baratheon's army hard during a secret attack in the night, the King made a big decision. He sent his Hand of the King -- the always rational Davos Seaworth – away, and with no one left to help him see ...

Game of Thrones Recap: 'The Dance of Dragons'

Game of Thrones Recap: 'The Dance of Dragons'
This is a Game of Thrones recap I have wanted to write for a long time.

Dany (Emilia Clarke) escaping the Daznak fighting pit while riding Drogon is one of the most exciting and climactic moments in George R.R. Martin's novels.

And the death of Shireen (Kerry Ingram) – which is not in the novels – is one of the most horrifying sequences in the show's history (and something I've been privately obsessing over since first hearing about it).

Thrones has always excelled at giving us moments of terror and triumph, but seldom have the highs and lows ever been so extreme,

Recap & Review: "Game of Thrones" Season 5 Episode 9, "The Dance of Dragons"

The ninth episode of every season of "Game of Thrones" is the one people remember. The last four seasons gave us the fate of Ned Stark (Sean Bean), the Battle of the Blackwater, the Red Wedding, and the Battle of the Wall. For season five, the memorable action-packed episode was delivered early in the form of "Hardhome", but "The Dance of Dragons" features an ending that should find its way into that pantheon. Before that ending, the show has a bit of business to take care of to set up the finale. In Dorne, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Prince Doran (Alexander Siddig) broker an unstable peace. Doran, again, recounts his horrendous experiences with war which serve to highlight why he is, seemingly, willing to do anything to prevent hostilities with King's Landing. He is even willing to let Myrcella (Nell Tiger Free) return with Jaime provided his son, Trystane (Toby Sebastian
