The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Is Not Happy With The Season Finale And These Spoilers Do Not Give Us Much To Look Forward To

With one episode to go, everyone is wondering how will “Game Of Thrones” end? For the past nine years, each Sunday has been dedicated to the sitting on the couch, borrowing our cousins HBO GO password, and diving into the mad world of its creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. All that will be over, come Sunday, and we’re not sure how we’re ever going to live without it. Though before any of that, we must settle on the last battle. Who will live and who will die? We’ve combed the internet and asked ever GoT junkie, and here’s what we found.

As the show finally concludes, even cast members aren’t very happy with the ending.

Several actors have expressed concern about how the last episode is shaping out, and they’re not too pleased. Last week when actress Lena Headey who plays Cersei Lannister died in the episode “The Bells,” she, like most of us, wasn’t ready to see her go.

“I wanted her to have some big piece or fight with somebody,” Headey said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. She said she initially had mixed feelings about her demise, but then grew to understand why she had to die. “The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the perfect end for her,” she said. “They came into the world together and now they leave together.”

Fans have proven themselves to be quite fed up with the series, and their momentum has only gained traction with the recent beheading of the series only Black woman and Daenerys’s sacking of the Red Keep.

Actress Nathalie Emmanuel, who played Missandei, voiced her concern over representation. If the show lacked diversity before, it truly did after her death on the episode titled “The Last of the Starks.”

“To be honest with you, when I read the script for it, I was like, not surprised that she died because I had been expecting it for a really long time,” Emmanuel said to Entertainment Weekly. “So many people die in that show and I guess I didn’t think I was any safer than anybody else in that respect. But I am fully aware and engaged in the conversation of representation because I am the only woman of color in this show that has been on there regularly for many seasons.”

Let’s get back to the real deal: who will survive?

Will Arya kill Daenerys?

Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams, has come a long way from Season One, but does she have what it takes to kill Daenerys? While it might be a long shot, Sansa and Arya do have something planned. This could be the biggest plot twist ever.

Someone is out to get Daenerys, that is for sure.

Some speculate that Varys, may have tried to poison Daenerys in episode five. Actor Conleth Hill, who played Varys, wasn’t pleased with the death of his character either. We think he’s trying to throws off and think he won’t be showing up again in the last episode.

Maybe her own troops are coming for her.

In a preview of the season finale, we see Daenerys in a dismal scene where the kingdom is up in flames and maybe they’re going to turn on her.

Then again, Jaime Lannister could be alive!

There’s still so many possibilities!

What do you think will happen in the last episode?

Netflix’s Newest Musical Teen Hit Series Stars a 16-Year-Old Afro-Latina Newcomer

Netflix’s Newest Musical Teen Hit Series Stars a 16-Year-Old Afro-Latina Newcomer

A new teen series has dropped on Netflix that the internet can’t stop talking about. The newest cultural phenomenon that has hit the juggernaut streaming service is a musical series called Julie and the Phantoms, based on the 2011 Brazilian show of the same name.

The series follows a 16-year-old insecure girl named Julie who has lost her love of music after the tragic death of her mother. But with the help of a (stay with us here) band of musical ghosts she stumbles across in her garage, she soon re-discovers her love of singing and performing. Backed by her band of “phantoms”, Julie confidently takes the stage again, blowing everyone away in the process. ,

But the wacky, heartfelt story-line isn’t the only reason people are excited about the show. The buzz around the show is building because its star, 16-year-old newcomer Madison Reyes, is an Afro-Latina singer-actress of Puerto Rican descent.

Before landing the role of Julie, Reyes was just a regular shmegular Nuyorican girl going to high school in Brooklyn. Needless to say, the process of auditioning for Julie and the Phantoms was both a whirlwind and a game-changer.

“I found out about Julie and the Phantoms through my school. At first I was nervous to send my video in, but after talking to some friends, I sent it in and got a call back,” Reyes told Refinery 29. “From there it was just figuring out when I could fly to L.A. When I finally made it out there, the audition process lasted two days.”

Reyes, for one, understands the burden of her load. “[Julie] is Latin American, she’s got textured hair, she’s a strong and independent female character,” Reyes recently told the LA Times. “As a person of color who wants more diversity [on-screen], I’m kind of scared about the hate comments that I’ve seen other people have to go through, especially women.”

As if having an Afro-Latina actress at the center of a popular Netflix show wasn’t exciting enough, the series is also being helmed by Mexican-American director and all-around legend Kenny Ortega. For those of you unfamiliar with Ortega, he is the creative genius who directed bonafide classics like High School Musical and Hocus Pocus.

Ortega has been publicly effusive in his praise of Reyes. “She has this raw talent that can take on any genre of music, and this promise of greatness that excited everybody,” he told the LA Times. “And yet she’s so relatable and grounded.”

Fans are already calling for a second season after watching the cliffhanger season finale. Reyes, herself, can’t wait to get back in the shoes of Julie. When asked in an interview about where we’ll see her next, she responded: “Hopefully in the next season of Julie and the Phantoms!”. We second that wish.
