Spoilers Ahead: Don’t read if you still haven’t seen the latest episode of Game of Thrones and want to keep the mystery alive!

Army of Winterfell

Damn right! The Battle Of Winterfell, the longest episode of the eight season of Game of Thrones is full of guts, bones, blood and finally, glory. ‘The Long Night’ is when the entire Westeros (of course except Cersei and her followers), go to war with the Army of the Dead. And boy, what a war it was.

The War Begins

The third episode starts where the second left off, with everyone preparing themselves for the battle that is about to come. The entire army at Winterfell is waiting with baited breath for the Night King and his army to emerge from the winter darkness. However, before the dead arrive, Melisandre reaches the troops and lights up their swords to prepare them for the battle. The entire Dothraki clan, charged by the flaming swords, head into the darkness to fight the dead. But before anything could happen, the flames die out and few soldiers that were left ‘alive’ are seen running back. And then, ‘the long night’ finally begins.

The dead are relentless and the living fight as hard as they can. There is fire and dragon glass, crunching bones and spewing blood, bodies falling and bodies rising. And in the midst of all this, there is an epic fight between the dragons – a fight between ice and fire!

Fight of the Dragons

Dany and Jon, along with their dragons get blinded by a snowstorm, tussle with trees and then rise above clouds, waiting for the Night King and his dragon to arrive. On the other side, the troops fall back and Melisandre once again comes to their rescue by lighting the trenches. But does it stop the dead army? Only momentarily.

Swords light up!
Swords light up!

How do you really kill something that is already dead? The dead aren’t scared of dying and that’s why they don’t stop. The dead army finds its way inside the castle with skeletons climbing on top of other skeletons, eating and clawing their way through anything and everything living. The living, on the other hand, are tiring out and scrambling to fight for their lives. And then the dead giant enters, crunching and killing everything in vicinity including the fiesty Lyanna Mormont. But before the giant could crush her completely, she stabs his eye with a dragon glass blade. Way to go!

Arya Stark becomes the warrior that she was training to be. Slashing, ripping and stabbing – she works her way around the dead. But when the size of the dead army chasing her keeps on increasing, Clegane and Beric Dondarrion, come and save her. In the process, Beric (the eye-patched guy who got multiple lives) finally dies. Arya and Clegane bump into Melisandre who reminds her of her destiny – “killing brown eyes, green eyes, blue eyes..”.

Outside the walls, Jon and Dany are going to great lengths to kill the Night King and his White Walker dragon. Jon’s dragon is finally able to bring the White Walker dragon down, but loses its life. With both Jon and the Night King down on the ground, and Dany still on the dragon, it seems like this is the end of the King. Dany looks at the Night King, smiles and says “Dracrys”.

The dragon aims his fire directly at the Night King but does he die? Uh-oh! He is unharmed. Jon hurries after the King in an attempt to kill him, but obviously that infuriates him. Turning around, he raises the entire body of dead (the entire Winterfell army) and turns them into White Walkers. Take that, Jon Snow.

Dany swoops in to save Jon and lights up the entire army of the dead so that Jon can head in and save Bran. Inside the castle, Theon and his troops are bravely defending Bran from the multiple skeletons finding their way to him. Jon rushes inside the castle, fighting the dead along the way. The dead have finally made their way inside the crypt, where Sansa, Tyrion and others were hiding safely.

Outside, the body count is rising and the White Walker dragon is searching for Jon. Ser Jorah is fighting to keep Dany alive and safe from the dead as her dragon took off with the dead clinging on to him for their lives (or not!).

The Night King finally reaches Bran as the only person left guarding him now is Theon. In a last attempt to save Bran, Theon charges at the Night King who nonchalantly, kills him.

“You are a good man, Theon”

Just as the Night King is about to take his sword to kill Bran, and the White Walker dragon is about to kill Jon, and the army of the dead is becoming too much to bear for the living, Arya charges towards the Night King. He turns around and hold her by the neck. Arya drops her dagger from her raised hand, catches it in her other hand, and sticks it into the Night King. And that is how, the Night King and his army finally die.

Arya Stark - Slayer of the Night King

Jon, Dany, Brienne, Jamie, Tyrion, Sansa, Bran and Arya live to see another day and fight another war. The dead fulfilled their prophecies and their duties – Jorah Mormont: saved his queen; Theon Greyjoy: saved Bran and got redemption; Lyanna Mormont: killed the giant and died like a hero; Melisandre: served the God of Light and showed Arya the way; Beric: saved Arya and fulfilled his destiny; Dolorous Ed: saved Samwell Tarly.

The trailer of the next episode promises to start another fight – the final fight. Who will win the final war? Who will sit on the Iron Throne? Is Dany or is Jon the rightful heir to the throne? We can only wait and watch.

Till then, keep saying ‘No’ to the ‘God of Death’.

Zac Efron As The Super Suave Ted Bundy Is Killing It

The Greatest Showman actor, Zac Efron doesn’t shy away from donning new looks. His clean-cut look was appreciated by fans who accepted him as easily when he rocked his moustache. His new look is a departure from his previous looks though. This time around, the man has something different and amazing to flaunt – his platinum blonde hair. Yes, he showed up in his new look at the Sundance Film Festival, and fans haven’t stopped talking about it since.

The occasion

Zac Efron was at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah for the premiere of the biopic Extremely Wicked, Shocking and Vile. He stars as notorious American killer Ted Bundy, who had raped and murdered at least 30 women in the ’70s. The story is told through the eyes of Elizabeth Kloepfer – his long-time girlfriend, played by Collins.

Ted Bundy Movie Trailer: YouTube

Fans might remember that when the trailer of the movie was released not too long ago, there was a scene where you could see Efron taking off his shirt revealing his ahem ahem, oh-so-sculpted body. Concern was expressed about the casting, and whether such a ‘ripped’ and ‘attractive’ look would glorify the serial killer that Bundy was.

via GIPHY

The truth is, despite his heinous crimes, Bundy was considered charismatic and a man with good looks. Well this might well be the reason why his victims used to easily go along with his requests that eventually led to their deaths.

Zac’s loving it

The actor told E! News, “The most exciting thing for me was being able to sort of lend that Ted Bundy charisma to the part. I hope that’s what comes across the most.” He added:

People that watched the trial, that were with him in prison, on his defense team, anybody who knew him growing up, they never had bad things to say about the guy. Not a single person. And all the way to the very end of his trial when he was finally found guilty, a lot of people still didn’t believe it…it’s kinda crazy.

Zac Efron

Fans are quite impressed with the actor’s experiments with his looks. When asked about his newly dyed hair Efron had apparently said, “It’s just for life, bro.” Those who closely follow the actor on Instagram would know that he did give us a glimpse of his blonde hair in one of his recent posts. Hidden behind the perfectly placed beanie, it perhaps went unnoticed.

Hair-raising questions

Social media users did express grave concern; the reactions however were mixed.

As expected, fans can’t stop raving about his new look. While one user tweeted, “Zac Efron with blonde hair is a blessing.”

Another wrote, “Sooo can we talk about Zac Efron’s new hair?” Fans are rooting for the new look and how. One went on to say, “Zac Efron bleached his hair and I’m 100% here for it.” As Elle rightly points out, this is not the first time that the actor has surprised us with his looks.

He has made lighter hair shades look good and had added blonde highlights to his natural browns while he was filming Baywatch. He had gone a step further to dye his ends platinum before returning to his brown roots. What followed next was his full beard look, which we must agree added to his boyish charm.

Each correct answer is rewarded with one point. If a character is predicted to die, the participant has the choice to predict whether he/she also becomes a white walker. However, players will lose a point if they incorrectly guess the white walker status.

Sophie Turner Was Not Allowed To Wash Her Hair In GoT

Sansa Stark is currently breaking the internet. HBO’s clip showing the Lady of the North and The Mother Of Dragons, meet was one very viral ten second clip. Turns out, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa on Game of Thrones did a great many things to fit into Sansa’s shoes. That includes, going without washing her hair for months at a time.

The Hair Nightmare

In a candid interview with Instyle, the Game of Thrones star shed light on how much she had to do to be ‘Sansa’. Speaking of which, most characters on GoT, save for Khaleesi and Cersei, showcased a greasy hairdo throughout. With a story set in the backdrop of the middle age, Sansa sported really greasy hair during her trials on Game of Thrones.

For the first few seasons I was allowed to wash my hair because I was an aristocratic young girl, but toward season five they started asking me to not wash my hair, and it was really disgusting.

Sophie Turner

Relief finally…

Sophie was 13 years old when she first played the role of Sansa in Game of Thrones. Turner, 22 now, recollects her horrific hair routine for the role. A natural blonde by birth, Sophie had dyed her hair red to play Sansa. Not washing her hair, artificial snow getting stuck in it, and continually dying it red, had caused a lot of hairfall. Thankfully, she now gets to wash her hair whenever needed.

Now I wear a wig, so I can wash my hair whenever I want, which is nice. But yes, for a couple of years I was living with pretty greasy hair.

Sophie Turner

Turner’s going places!

Along with the immensely popular character of Sansa, Sophie has also played Jean Gray in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) and Vida in The Thirteenth Tale (2013) . She has also made appearances in Barely Lethal and Another Me. The actress seems to be growing leaps and bounds in her career as of now. She is also the face of Wella Professionals.

The biggest thing is WellaPlex. It’s a hair mask that you put on, leave in for 10 minutes, and then wash out. It repairs the bonds in your hair so that it doesn’t just feel strong and healthy, it actually is stronger and healthier afterward. I use it every week, because with the job I have, it’s a lot of dyeing, straightening, curling, and heat damage. I’ll put in on after showering, watch a bit of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and then I go back and wash it off.

Sophie Turner to Glamour

Sophie’s life right now

In fact, Turner owes the replenishing and repairing of her hair condition to the good hair products she used. Currently, (thanks to the wig) Sophie sports, Icy Beige Blonde hair; a Koleston Perfect hair dye result. The dye is known to give lasting color and vibrancy.

Deadpool 3 In The Works? Ryan Reynolds Is Dropping Hints

Deadpool has managed to receive plenty of appreciation from the very beginning. So much so, that Deadpool 2 had garnered hype and attention from the word go. And fans of the franchise were getting way more updates than they could handle. Not surprising then, Deadpool 3 is living up to the whole euphoria the superhero franchise has managed to build with each installment. So what’s in store for the much-awaited third one? Any guesses?

The excitement begins

Are they taking the story forward? Are they giving out any clues? Well, for starters, suffice to say that the development on Deadpool 3 has already begun. Ryan Reynolds who plays the popular superhero has confirmed this and we definitely are all ears. While in China for the release of a much milder version of the sequel called Once Upon a Deadpool, a re-cut version of Deadpool 2 with added footage, he told us something that could well increase our expectations from the third installment.

He spoke during a press conference. As reported by Variety, this is what the superhero had to say, “[The producers and writers are] looking to go in a completely different direction.” And that’s not all; “Often, they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late,” he added.

Perhaps this is what Rhett Reese, Deadpool 2 producer and co-writer meant when he told CinemaBlend, “contracts back down” into something “personal and small.” This was after Cable, Domino and X-Force members were added to the Deadpool 2 universe.

Rewind

As the Merc with a foul mouth, Reynolds is the favorite in the X-Men universe. He bowled us over with his amazing portrayal of the anti-hero. While speaking to Screen Rant, both the writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese had revealed their plans for Deadpool 3 earlier. “We’re constantly in touch with Ryan (Reynolds), and we’re always throwing ideas back and forth via text and phone conversations. So, it’s always at the front of our minds. We’ll get there when the time is right, but as of right now, X-Force is next up,” Wernick had divulged.

YouTube

According to the chronology that we’ve established, X-Force will be next, before Deadpool 3. It’s a bit of the ‘Iron Man 1, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3’ model, in that sense. X-Force isn’t being written by us. It’s being written and directed by Drew Goddard, or at least that’s the plan right now. We’re not involved with that one. We do anticipate there will be a Deadpool 3 at some point, but it’s just a little premature, because it will definitely take a backseat to X-Force for the time being.

Rhett Reese

The wait begins

Once Upon a Deadpool is a PG-13 edition of the movie and during its brief theatrical run, $6 million is all it made. Whether this was due to the fact that the original had made it to home media way before this version appeared on screen or not, is not known. We wonder if fans were really up for this insipid version of their superhero. After all, his irreverent edge is hugely responsible for the all the popularity he garners. While the makers may have several things planned for the franchise, fans do have their own expectations.

Facebook Hurting Us The Most. Shares Personal Data With Companies

Did you know that since 2010, our very favorite social media platform Facebook has given access of our personal data to more than 150 companies? Well, while the dust refuses to settle on the tech giant’s breach of privacy issue, there have been companies that were given the right to read and delete private messages of users. Surprised? Read on.

Is your data safe? Think again

The New York Times revealed how our data has been compromised due to Facebook’s data-sharing business partnerships. Those who have enjoyed access include top giants such as Yahoo, Microsoft, Amazon, Spotify, Netflix, and even Yandex- the Russian search engine. While the partnerships may have been cemented at different times, they were active in 2017 and were exempted from the privacy rules.

Different companies have enjoyed access to a varying extent. For example, Microsoft’s search engine Bing could access names of friends of virtually all Facebook users without their consent. While Netflix, Spotify and the Royal Bank of Canada went a step further and could even read, write and delete their private messages.

via GIPHY

Others such as Amazon, Microsoft and Sony could get contact information of users through their friends. Despite the said attempts of prohibiting such access, Yahoo and Yandex reportedly retained access. And that’s not all; Apple was given the power to see users’ contacts as well as their calendar entries. This was, irrespective of whether their data sharing was disabled or not.

Also Read: Users are deleting Instagram and you should too

YouTube – Facebook data share

So like it or not- these companies sought hundreds of millions of people on a monthly basis by way of applications. The biggest concern is that some of these partnerships are active even today.

The shadow of doubt looms

Facebook is already receiving a lot of flak for such breaches and its privacy policies are being heavily scrutinized. But Facebook refuses to accept such claims. Konstantinos Papamiltiadis, Facebook’s director of developer platforms and programs, revealed in a blog post saying:

None of these partnerships or features gave companies access to information without people’s permission, nor did they violate our 2012 settlement with the FTC.

Konstantinos Papamiltiadis

As Times reporter Nick Confessore points out through his tweet, Facebook believes that an explicit consent of users is not really necessary since its business partners which they prefer to call as ‘integration partners’ are in fact ‘functionally extensions of Facebook itself’.

Nick Confessore Twitter page
Courtesy: Twitter/nickconfessore

The Times report definitely raises some very valid questions and two U.S. Senators have already expressed the need for a federal privacy law. What’s ironic is that despite such arguments, Facebook admits that it’s got work to do to regain people’s trust.

Ime Archibong, Facebook’s Vice President of product partnerships, said in a blog post,

In the past day, we’ve been accused of disclosing people’s private messages to partners without their knowledge. That’s not true — and we wanted to provide more facts about our messaging partnerships.

Ime Archibong, V.P. Product Partnerships at Facebook

Netflix, Spotify cry foul

Meanwhile, Netflix and Spotify cry foul. Netflix released a statement saying, “At no time did we access people’s private messages on Facebook, or ask for the ability to do so.” Spotify on the other hand said something similar. “We have no evidence that Spotify ever accessed users’ private Facebook messages,” it said.

via GIPHY

With their stock falling by more than 7 percent after the article got published, Facebook indeed has a lot of work to do. Or else, it will continue to lose its ‘friends’.

‘Ello Manhattan! Marvel Introduces New Drag Queen Superhero

Marvel is happy to unveil the first drag queen superhero. Fans are loving her. And we must say, she’s fabulous. Even her name has charmed everyone. Guys, meet Shade, the mutant drag queen. As the newest addition to the X-men comics’ lore, she is introduced in the fourth issue of the Iceman comic.

The epic introduction

This is how Shade had introduced herself after a fellow mutant’s performance, “Ello Manhattan. It’s your emcee, Shade. And I got none to throw at Dazzler’s set. Let’s give her another round of applause.”

Writer Sina Grace and artist Nathan Stockman are the brains behind this wonderfully awesome character. Most would know Iceman is the only monthly series that has a queer lead and the introduction of this superhero has added to its popularity.

Also Read: George RR Martin teases GOT fans

Says Grace to the LGBTQ website The Advocate:

I really wanted this series to push readers to new and better stories about the whole queer experience and how it applies to being both a mutant and a superhero. There’s a million different queer perspectives and we’re only scratching the surface.

The spin-off also happens to be the return to the series for Grace who was on board for the 2017 series that was cancelled just after 11 issues in spite of the fact that it had a GLAAD Media Award nomination.

What’s surprising was that the sales figures were dismal despite the critical acclaim it received. Shade will hopefully be seen more often; in Iceman No.5 and also in a special annual edition – X-Men: Winter’s End which is expected in February. More appearances are likely but the details have not yet been revealed.

Awesome superpowers

From the time she’s arrived on the scene, everyone’s going gaga over her powers. With the help of her handheld fan she can teleport effortlessly and enter a pocket dimension. The sassy superhero teleports with a ‘thwoooorp’.

Marvel superhero Shade

The drag queen clicked with fans instantly when she teleported into the first ever Mutant Pride Parade eventually becoming its master of ceremonies, and look forward to more frequent appearances in the near future.

On introducing new (s)heroes

As Dr. Ormond, who specializes in women in comics and subcultural identities, rightly pointed out to UNILAD how the introduction of Shade gives the company a chance to renew the superhero genre. She said, “Marvel and DC have been criticized for not showing enough of these types of characters across the various media of their expanded universe, so I can see why they decided to introduce her. It was a sound business decision as much as an appeal to their fanbase.”

​Fans of the comic book would know that Bobby Drake, Iceman’s alter-ego is an openly gay man who is seen struggling with his many overlapping identities. The introduction of the mutant has happened at a time when the company did not have a particularly good track record as far as LGBTQ+ representation is concerned and were criticized along with rivals DC by GLADD.

Something for the queer community

GLADD had raised the issue in their annual report, particularly pointing at Marvel and DC, stating:

It is becoming increasingly more difficult to ignore that LGBTQ people remain almost completely shut out of Hollywood’s big budget comic book films that have dominated the box office over the past several years.

The introduction of the drag queen superhero comes as a welcome relief, also the fact that Kevin Feige has promised to usher in openly gay characters soon. Fans would remember how two scenes were cut from Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther to avoid depiction of same-sex lovers.

Steve-O Snorts HIV Positive Blood Stained Coke, Lives To Tell Tale

Jackass sensation and television star, Steve-O has definitely had one helluva life. He has been in and out of prison quite a few times. From public obscenity to smuggling drugs, Steve-O has done it all. The 44 year old has recently even admitted to snorting HIV blood stained cocaine. Whoa!

Steve-O opens up

In a candid interview on In-Depth with Graham Bensinger, the actor revealed just how desperate and difficult his time as a drug addict was.
Steve spoke of how his mother was an alchoholic and how he would get to booze often during New Years parties at home

The star had his first drink at a very young age. He said that, though his mother was an alchoholic and his father never stopped him from drinking during festivities, he holds himself responsible for all his addictions.

In a chilling narrative, he describes how his mother hated him crying while on an airplane. In an effort to calm him down, and get him to sleep during the flight, she apparently gave him booze even as a baby.

Steve’s Drug Problem

The actor then opened up about his journey as a drug addict. Turns out , his drug dealer lived very close to where he was living. He calls him ‘Everything’. Steve said that he’d often call the man and ask him what he’s got to sell, to which the dealer would just say that he’s got everything. Hence the name.

Steve-O

Sometimes when the dealer didn’t pick up his call, Steve said he’d just drop by the man’s place to take his stuff. One fateful day when he was at the brink of utter desperation, ‘Everything’ did not pick up his call. The actor as usual, just went over to his place and picked up his stash of drugs.

The Blood Coke

Steve mentioned that the drug dealer was not just a dealer but a drug user too. He recollects a gory picture of how the man would inject cocaine into his system by means of a syringe.

YouTube/In-Depth

Sometimes, he said, ‘Everything’ would pass out post a drug session. This was one of those days. The man had passed out, leaving his front door wide open. Steve unfortunately saw the man and even tried to wake him up.

Post unsuccessful attempts at waking him, the actor noticed a residue of the drug on a table nearby. Even though he saw the blood spots on it (blood squirts when using the injection method), he scraped it up and snorted it.

This is how just desperate and pathetic my addiction was.

A now sober and fully recovered Steve sat up grateful and happy that his past experience is over. As for HIV scare, Steve seemed sure he didn’t contract any of it.
