On this past week’s episode of Game of Thrones, we finally learned what happened to Hot Pie, the reformed bully who found his true calling as a baker and whom we last saw in season four. As fate would have it, Ben Hawkey, the actor who plays Hot Pie, has been busy in the kitchen as well.
The seventh season of Game of Thrones is truly underway. However, unlike the premiere, the second episode failed to feature the White Walkers, the ominous army of the undead marching towards the living. Since that opening episode, eagle eyed viewer have spotted something very interesting in the opening credits sequence; a minor change that could reveal a key plot point to come.
HBO added another winkle to the Hound scene when it uploaded a recap of the episode to its official site. In their write-up, the Hound’s speech had an additional line. Could this line indicate how exactly the dead are “marching past” Eastwatch?
A new Blade Runner 2049 trailer landed this morning and if you thought Jared Leto was up to no good in the last trailer, he really ups his creepiness in this one. But we also noticed new characters, new locations, and more than a few lines that are subtly different from when we heard them in the first trailer.
The episode drew 16.1 million total viewers, including 10.1 million who watched on the linear channel and the rest coming from DVR and streaming. That represents an incredible 50% increase from last year’s premiere, when the show premiered in the spring when TV viewership is typically higher than the summer.
Ahead of Game of Thrones‘ Season 7 premiere, Jimmy Kimmel unveiled Harington’s never-before-seen “audition tape” on Monday’s episode of Live.

Fans have been talking about an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie for years. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor has repeatedly said he’d like to return to the role. Now, if rumors are to be believed, Disney could soon announce it as the next Star Wars Story film, perhaps as early as this weekend, during the D23 Expo.
Continuing a campaign of using his social media accounts to stoke the fires in Star Wars fans’ hearts, Howard tweeted a photo from a certain character’s wardrobe. The only thing is, we don’t know who that certain someone is, which is naturally the point of Howard’s game with the internet savvy public.
The film will drop us straight into the centre of Wakanda, an African nation possessing incredible technology but which hides itself from the outside world, and whose new king T’Challa (AKA the Black Panther) finds his sovereignty threatened by two enemies conspiring to bring the entire kingdom down.
Netflix tweeted a new poster and teaser for Stranger Things season 2. Both show the four Hawkins boys riding headlong into danger, though in this case it’s an ominous, blood-red storm, indicating that the Upside Down may be coming from all sides.
