Images from the next episode of Game of Thrones have been released, and it looks like Winterfell is gearing up for a fight.

There’s a tease of Jaime’s trial, and Raven-Bran being an unsettling combination of still and weird. Full Story

Richard Madden is on the TIME 100 this year. Why, exactly? I like Madden as much as the next person, but what has he done to put him on this list? Bodyguard was popular for a minute, and it did break him out of the Game of Thrones bubble—is that all it takes? Or is he here as the presumptive heir Full Story

If you told me that among the women of Girls, ALLISON WILLIAMS would have the most interesting post-show career, I would not have believed you. Her? I would say. The basic preppy one? HER? Yet, this is what has happened. Post-Girls, Allison Williams has built an interesting, genre-strewn career. Full Story

Elizabeth Banks’ officially-a-sequel-and-not-a-reboot Charlie’s Angels is coming out later this year, and we have some brightly colored photos to look at and start judging. The photos focus on Kristen Stewart as Sabina (GREAT NAME), Naomi Scott as Elena, Ella Balinska as Jane, and Banks as one of several Bosleys—Patrick Stewart and Djimon Hounsou are also Bosleys. Full Story

In the midst of Avengers: Endgame madness, it’s easy to forget this is just the first big movie of summer, and there are other movies coming out. One of those movies is John Wick: Chapter 3 and to remind us of this fact, Keanu Reeves is on the cover of GQ. The whole profile is about the Mystique Of Keanu, and it seems that the writer, Alex Pappademas, leaned on this angle because Keanu is not super communicative in interviews. Full Story

SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY It’s not new information that since becoming the Three-Eyed Raven Bran Stark has turned into a total creep, but in the return episode of Game of Thrones, Bran reaches new heights of creepiness. He spends all his time, sitting in the courtyard, waiting for his “old friend”, and generally saying creepy things and being creepy to everyone. Full Story

SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY Lainey and I were texting after the Game of Thrones premiere, and one thing that came up was the length of Jon Snow’s first dragon ride. Lainey was like, “They’re just showing off their VFX” and “Where’s Ghost”, complaining that the moment was too long, but I loved Jon’s first flight, for a lot of reasons. Full Story

Game of Thrones: The Beginning of the End

SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY After an interminable wait—what was it, five years? Don’t correct me, it FELT like forever—Game of Thrones has returned for its final season. This episode was, as many first-of-the-season Thrones episodes are, mostly a table-setting episode. It was sorting everyone into their respective corners to start the story, setting up the big conflicts and potential betrayals, and arranging the pieces on the latest battlefield. Full Story
