Sure enough, social media is going crazy.  I wonder if we're going to see reaction videos of people freaking out like we saw after the Red Wedding?

I think it's a serious possibility that season 5 will end in a similar fashion to book 5.  OMG, Twitter will be CRAZY tonight if it does.

"The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes

Ornette Coleman

Horrible day to be a celebrity

Damn.


Regarding Christopher Lee, reports I read indicated that he actually died on Sunday.  News of his passing wasn't publicized until yesterday since he has a large family and it took some time for them to be notified.

The Hammer films alone are a great reason to appreciate Christopher Lee.  But before he became Dracula onscreen he had quite an impressive war record with the RAF during WWII.  And more recently he had been involved in some metal albums, contributing vocals to those records.  To say that he lived a full life is something of an understatement.

More teaser video for REBELS season 2, and more action from the A-Wings!

Drogon was simply fantastic.  Seeing him swoop in over that arena was very impressive, and those Sons of the Harpy did not stand a chance against his fangs or his dragonfire.  Still, I was very surprised to see him get hit with as many spears as he did.

The scenes with Shireen Baratheon were really rough.  I knew there was the potential for this to happen given some foreshadowing over the past couple of weeks, as well as how the Mance Rayder storyline has been handled.  But Stannis?  Just when he had been endearing himself to the audience the showrunners throw this at you and you know that he could never truly rule the Seven Kingdoms. 

The storyline in Braavos is shaping up rather quickly.  Seeing how Arya's prayer list has been whittled down somewhat it seems pretty clear who she's going for next.

And at the Wall?  I think there's been a MASSIVE amount of foreshadowing there.  And I think that Olly may play a major part in what we see at the end of next week's episode.

Honestly, I didn't think it would be possible for the show to condense the events of A Feast For Crows and A Dance with Dragons into a single season.  But now that the show is on a roll I certainly see the potential for this season to wrap up the same way that book 5 does.  And if that's indeed the case we're likely going to be in completely uncharted territory for Season 6 of the HBO series.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: '67 Shelby Cobra found after 45 years

This story just gets more and more interesting.  When we started down this path I had some measure of sympathy for the current owner, and the possibility that he might have been one of a string of owners of this car who didn't know that it was stolen.  But now that it's clear that the vehicle has stolen plated any sense of sympathy for this guy just flew out the window, and the stolen plates make it seem that much more likely that he knew the car had been stolen.

In related news, check this out.  It's the story of a Corvette that was stolen in 1972 and just got recovered.  The parallels between this story and the Shelby are kind of remarkable, although I think the Shelby Cobra is a much, much cooler car.

Check out this USA Today video.  REBELS series Director Dave Filoni and voice actress Ashley Eckstein talk about Ahsoka Tano, her impact on the Star Wars universe and her story arc as it moves toward REBELS season 2.

The Wights (aka Army of the Dead) seem very much like they're mindless and under the control of the While Walkers.  But I get the sense that the White Walkers are very much aware and in control of what they're doing.

So was that giant Wun Wun?  You had to love the line he said to Dolorous Ed!  And those were definitely some of the fastest zombies I've seen since Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead.  Is it me, or does the Night's King look like an icy Darth Maul?
