About two episodes back, S07E05, on HBO’s Game of Thrones, we saw Tyrion and Daenerys roughly discuss (if we can call it that) the line of succession when she does take the Iron Throne from Queen Cersei Lannister. That conversation did not end well: Daenerys practically shouted Tyrion down saying,
“We’ll discuss the line of succession after I take the throne.”
Her plan sounds fair enough.
Fast forward two episodes later, the season finale, S07E07, we see a long time fan-anticipated scene come to fruition – Jon and Daenerys’ sexual romp – Tyrion, more or less, saw it too, and boy, was he disappointed. Thelook on his face showed him clearly conflicted on Daenerys’ stance now that she had been compromised by love (or lust).
The question is, why that look on Tyrion’s face?
The answer is simple. As the Hand of the Queen, all Tyrion wants is to see Daenerys succeed, to see the new world he knows she can bring become a reality. The problem is, she can’t do that if she’distracted having a sexual romp with a man as enticing as Jon Snow when she knows it would lead to nothing – no offspring.
Tyrion is a reasonable man and just like Varys, would do anything for the good of the realm.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is expected late in 2018 or early 2019.
After waiting seven years, all I got was five seconds of child’s play intertwined within flashes, in a scene intended to confirm roughly 20 years of fan,guessing and theories. I am pained!
Game of Thrones finally ended its seventh year run, but not before setting the entire world on fire before going on its last break between seasons – certianly , life will never be the same again, for the real world and for the world of Ice and Fire. The show made us hate incest between twin siblings but root for that between aunt and nephew. Damn!
And when the time finally came to carry out the deed, see all we got!
We are down to the final did episodes, so there’s almost certainly not going to be any more sex, not with The Wall down and the undead heading for The North now.
Few things have been able to unite people of different views and ideas successfully. Football has been universally acclaimed for the ease with which it achieved this feat; but there’s another hero – its name is Game of Thrones.
The hit show from HBO has been a force to reckon with ever since it first premiered in 2011. GOT, as it’s easily referred to, is the best show of the ’10s, and arguably the best TV show of all time. It has only grown in strength – popularity, piracy, hackers, viewers, merchandise sales, story and production quality. All these and many more bear testament to the fact that GOT is the real deal. A common saying nowadays is, if you’re not watching Game of Thrones, you haven’t started watching TV. And it is very true.
This is the reason many dread a world without GOT. And that world is fast approaching. The inevitable end is near.
GOT has done so much for us – It gave us a companion when we needed one the most. It gave us something great to talk about every week on social media. It raised the standard of TV productions, and made it a more profitable venture. It thought us to love, to not fear death and many other life lessons. These lessons are what we have to hold on to when the show is gone.
We have a season finale to worry about tonight, and one more season of captivating TV to look forward to. #GOTForever
This is a sad one to write about. RIP, Raina.
The title is ambiguous because her death has implications for lots of characters on the show.
In all honesty, Ghost and Tasha are horrible parents; the State needs to sue them for custody of Tariq, before they further ruin the child’s life.
Raina was his baby girl; she was everything he wanted his marital life to be – peaceful, loving and understanding. Her death will most certainly put a dent on the need for him to go legit. Saving his family has always been his primal instinct, but with the purest of the St. Patrick’s gone, what more is Jamie living for? Be gone Jamie, enter, Ghost.
As a wife, Tasha is 100% everything most men have and take for granted. Loving and worshipping her man even in his greatest time of trouble; how I wish she showered her children that much love and attention. The truth is, Tasha’s failed as a mother. Lord help us! Raina’s death might just be the catalyst she needs to return to her senses and stop fraternizing with Terry The Lawyer and face her two remaining children and husband squarely.
If there’s one character who’s been unapologetically annoying in recent time, it is Tariq. A recent census carried out by RR on Twitter that compared fans death wish for annoying TV characters saw Tariq win it big against heavy lifters such as, Dre, Cersei and LittleFinger. That says a lot. It’s a pity Raina had to die for Tariq to have sense again. I do hope his story arc shows him doing useful things, because I don’t think I can bare it further watching him mess up while Raina lies in a grave.
Notable mentions: Characters like Tommy, Lekeisha and Angela are sure to be bumped by the news of Raina’s death. A chain of events will be triggered. I believe Tommy will be most affected directly, while Angela’s arms might play the role of comforter to Jaime in this great time of sorrow.
I took a break from my routine to watch every episode of the first season of On The Real, the hit TV show produced by Temidayo Abudu for Ebony Life TV. It was supposed to be a one episode trial but I found myself binge-watching the entire season and remaining hopeful that I’ll find a way to watch every episode of the recently premiered second season.
On The Real takes us on a journey into the lives of stars of a fictional hit reality TV show, rightly titled, The Real – BJ, Wana, Farida, Amaka and Efosa are the lead characters and shoulder the bulk of the story, while minor characters like Lolu and Autu generate and balance the drama and many twists. Their lives in and out of the reality show makes for an interesting watch. At first, characters like Efosa and Lolu come across as impractical (especially in the pilot episode), but they soon grow on you and you can’t help but lookout for hem in every scene.
My favourite character has to be BJ – he’s so relatable. I believe it’s because of his effortless blend of pidgin with impeccable English and his hustler spirit which is glaring.
After watching the first season, I’ll say the weakest link is Autu – definitely not her fault because she was brought in late; I do hope her role is expanded in the second season.
On The Real is a beautiful show, one that tries to tell the Nigerian story of privileged youths and how much most would give to remain relevant in whatever assures them success in the society.
After 5 years, 5 seasons and 50 episodes, BBC America’s Orphan Black takes a bow. SciFi has never felt so real, simple yet captivating until Orphan Black came around; it redefined science and made it better appealing to the common man.
During the course if its run, Orphan Black discussed many issues all ranging around the importance and true meaning of family. It was mostly about cloning and the true meaning of intellectual properties. Sarah and her sisters (or sestras, as Helena calls them) all share the same face but different personalities, this and many more bear witness to the awesomeness that is actress, Tatiana Maslaney’s prowess.
I’ll try to list them as many of them as I can remember, all you have to do is tell me who’s your favorite.
The lead clone, and one of the only two capable of having children.
The first clone to die because she couldnt handle the depression that came with the knowledge of being a clone. Her death started the mysteries of the series.
3. Katja Obinger
A german clone who was working with Beth. She was killed by Helena.
4. Allison Hendrix
Allison is a tough homemaker, Who wants nothnothing more than to keep her family and sestras safe.
If there anyone I forgot? Kindly remind me.
The truth is that the clone club has been through a lot, and if the final moments of the series finale is anything to go by, they’ll be living a life of peace and contentment.
