In this wonderful video, the Game of Thrones cast reflects on making the series, reveal the scenes that they enjoyed the most and the scenes that shocked them the most (the Red Wedding made the Hound cry, you guys), and what the show means to them. It’s worth your time.
If you want longer versions from individual actors, TV Guide has you covered right here.
According to Digital Spy, the actors may not know how the show ends. WHAT.
“The actors think they know the end, because they were all here for the table read,” Benioff said. “But that’s not to say that we don’t employ deception at times.”
He added: “We have had some success in terms of hiding things, but the actors definitely all believe that they know where this season is going to end.”
So I guess we can disregard all of this?
At the season premiere, George R.R. Martin revealed that Benioff and Weiss’ ending is an adaptation of his original idea for the ending from some 25 years ago, that the prequel is going to be “very different” from Game of Thrones, and that his staff has him chained to his typewriter to finish The Winds of Winter. Still no word on when it will be done. I really was holding out hope that he was going to time it with the final season but NOPE.

Hannah Murray, the actress who plays Gilly, reveals that she had issues with how her fifth season sex scene with Sam was written, that it was too much from his perspective, and that she spoke up with her concerns. Yes to this.

For those of you in Brooklyn, io9 is hosting a Game of Thrones drag show on Saturday that I would ABSOLUTELY go to if I were there.
Felicity Huffman is SO SORRY, you guys, and is going to plead guilty to cheating her daughters’ way into college. She might spend up to four months in prison — but we’ll see.
Lori Loughlin, however, has been offered a minimum of two years in prison in plea negotiations, because she paid so much more in her bribe.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s third season will only be eight episodes long.
The death of Filmstruck was felt hard here at Foolish HQ — mostly by my husband — so the launch of the Criterion Channel is anxiously anticipated. This is a list of everything available on the channel in its first month.
No. Next question?
I could have written this piece about how I hated musical theater until Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (except for the part where I didn’t like it until the fourth episode — for me, I was in love after the second).
In today’s edition of “Tucker Carlson is the Fucking Worst,” his show edited a reporter’s tweet to make it look like she was commenting on Kirstjen Nielsen rather than reporting on her.
Someone finally asked Elisabeth Moss how she squares starring in The Handmaid’s Tale with being a member of a “church” that has a long history of being anti-LGBTQ and anti-feminist, and her answer was “the first amendment.” OK.
