I don’t care if you’re sick of ‘Game of Thrones’ news, this is what we’re going to talk about this week

Look, I can’t figure out how to make the Fredo Trump Jr. story be about television, so we’re just going to stick with Game of Thrones today.

This is a list of characters The Hollywood Reporter thinks are probably going to die this season. LEAVE BRIENNE AND POD OUT OF IT.

A quick reminder of who actually has a claim to the Iron Throne.

This monster thinks that we are “overdue” for a Stark death. RICKON JUST DIED, YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH.

Uh-oh, is Sansa going to do something she “regrets”? Maybe!

Tyrion has more screen time than he has in years, hooray!

Binging with Babish makes a pigeon pie, Dothraki blood pie, and lemon cakes for your Game of Thrones viewing party pleasure:

This writer has been waiting for 20 years for this season of Game of Thrones. Yeah, tell my buddy Andrew, who served as the editorial assistant on that first book, about it, buddy.

These poor dears think that Martin might not just be done with The Winds of Winter, but has secretly finished A Dream of Spring, too. Waiting for these books have made us all a tad delusional.

Hey, here’s Kit Harington’s never-before-seen audition for Game of Thrones. See, it’s funny because he dresses like a girl.


Which drama series actually have an Emmy chance now that Game of Thrones is out of the way? (This is Us, it’s going to win the Drama Emmy, obviously.)

Nelsan Ellis’ family has come forward with a heartbreaking statement on the circumstances of his death to help others:

Nelsan’s father has bravely agreed for me to share the circumstances of Nelsan’s heart failure. Nelsan has suffered with drug and alcohol abuse for years. After many stints in rehab, Nelsan attempted to withdraw from alcohol on his own. According to his father, during his withdrawal from alcohol he had a blood infection, his kidneys shut down, his liver was swollen, his blood pressure plummeted, and his dear sweet heart raced out of control.

On the morning of Saturday July 8th, after four days in Woodhull Hospital, Nelsan was pronounced dead. Nelsan was a gentle, generous and kind soul. He was a father, a son, a grandson, a brother, a nephew, and a great friend to those that were lucky enough to know him. Nelsan was ashamed of his addiction and thus was reluctant to talk about it during his life. His family, however, believes that in death he would want his life to serve as a cautionary tale in an attempt to help others.

A couple of American Horror Story points: 1. We will learn the title of this season on July 20th and 2. Twisty is coming back to American Horror Story in one fashion or another, apparently:


Fear the Walking Dead, which is MUCH better this season, will return on September 10.

Jordan Rogers and Jojo the Unicorn aren’t getting married anytime soon. But they are living together in Dallas, so there’s that I guess.

The long-time voice of Kermit the Frog is out  and has been replaced with someone else with no reason given. Hmm.

This is a fun piece about what GLOW gets right about professional wrestling.

You can fly on a Sharknado plane this summer if that is something important to you.

Roseanne spoiler. But to be completely honest, it’s not even that much of a spoiler if you think about it, just sort of an obvious development. What I am saying is, don’t get too excited about what is behind that link.

Oh, Haley Reinhart, honey.

In Development
