Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to Move to Africa? Palace Responds
Will the Royal Family send Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to live and work and Africa after their baby is born? The Sunday Times, one of Britain's most trusted newspapers, is reporting that Harry's advisers have been working on plans to establish a "bespoke" role for him and his wife abroad that would "combine some work on behalf of the Commonwealth along with charity work and a role promoting Britain." The news comes as Harry and Meghan are expected to announce the birth of their first child any day now. "Discussions are at an early stage, but the plan is to find a new way of using their soft power abilities, most likely in Africa," a...

Game of Thrones: The Scene of Sam Giving Jorah His Sword Is Deeply Significant

Game of Thrones: The Scene of Sam Giving Jorah His Sword Is Deeply Significant
Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones below! Proceed with caution.

When Samwell Tarly gifts Jorah Mormont with a special piece of weaponry in the latest episode of Game of Thrones, titled "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," it's far more than a simple act of generosity - it's a particularly meaningful, full-circle moment for the formerly disgraced son of House Mormont.

To remind any of you who 1.) didn't read the books, or 2.) read the books and watched the show, but can't remember what happened early on in either Jorah had quite the checkered past before he crossed paths with Daenerys Targaryen. The shameful decisions he made years earlier that resulted in his exile are actually why receiving the Valyrian steel sword from Sam made for such a heartfelt scene. Need a refresher on what went down? Let's dive in.

Game of Thrones: Here's the Deal With Bran's Mark From the Night King
Now that Bran Stark's creepy stare has cemented him as one of the most mysterious characters on Game of Thrones, it's hard to imagine a time when he wasn't so in tune with his Three-Eyed Raven identity. But he hasn't always known about his powers to see past, future, and current but slightly distant events. He had to learn how to use them, and it was in that time that he had a terrifying encounter with the Night King. As Bran mentions in the second episode of the final season, the Night King once left him with a mark that enables the undead leader to know his location.

If your memory of the past isn't as clear as Bran's, the Night King leaves this mark in season six. At that point, Bran's already met the previous Three-Eyed Raven after going on a mission beyond the wall to find him - though back then,

Here's Exactly How Jorah and Lyanna Mormont Are Related on Game of Thrones

Here's Exactly How Jorah and Lyanna Mormont Are Related on Game of Thrones
With seven seasons completed, Game of Thrones viewers are surely familiar with the families at the forefront. The Starks, Targaryens, and Lannisters are essentially the big three in the final season - but there are tons of smaller families in Westeros, too. Take, for example, the Mormonts. While they're not a major noble house, they've been present throughout the series with various characters. Its surviving main players, Ser Jorah Mormont and Lady Lyanna Mormont, are even cousins. Yes, cousins! Let's dive into their familial breakdown, shall we?

Jorah's father is Jeor Mormont, better known as the Lord Commander, or leader, of the Night's Watch during the show's first three seasons. Prior to the events of the series, Jeor was the Lord of Bear Island and the head of his house. Joining the Night's Watch then passed those titles onto Jorah. However, we first meet Jorah in Essos, where he's fled

Here's the Hidden Significance Behind Podrick's Song on Game of Thrones

  • Popsugar
Over the years, HBO's adaptation of Game of Thrones has diverged quite a bit from the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, but the moments when the two once again overlap are downright magical. Such is the case with the inclusion of the song "Jenny of Oldstones" as sung by Podrick Payne (Daniel Portman) during season eight's second episode. Florence and the Machine covered the song for the show's closing credits, making them the only pop group featured in the final season (so far).

Fans of the books may recognize "Jenny of Oldstones" as a destitute woman who won the heart of Prince Duncan Targaryen and married him, even though he was already betrothed to the daughter of Lord Lyonel Baratheon and against the wishes of Prince Targaryens' father, King Aegon Targaryen V. King Aegon attempted to dismantle the union, but Duncan refused to

Game of Thrones: How Jaime's Words From Season 1 Just Made a Huge Comeback
Warning: Spoilers for the most recent episode of Game of Thrones below!

Jaime Lannister has finally returned to Winterfell, but he almost loses his head in the process. The former leader of the Kingsguard arrives in Winterfell in the final seconds of the premiere of Game of Thrones' eighth season, and he stands trial in the opening minutes of the second episode. While Daenerys is quick to suggest he pay for his sins against her family (though we can't say anyone's really mad about that outcome), Brienne convinces Sansa to trust him. Jon agrees, since "they need all the men they can get." But there's one point in the trial that truly seems to shake Jaime, and that's a single comment from Bran Stark: "The things we do for love." The seemingly simple phrase is enough to seriously rattle the older man.

As a reminder, the phrase goes back to season one,

Game of Thrones: The Heartbreaking Reason Sansa Is So Happy to See Theon Again

Game of Thrones: The Heartbreaking Reason Sansa Is So Happy to See Theon Again
We didn't know how much we needed to see Theon and Sansa reunite on Game of Thrones until it happened. It's been quite some time since these two saw one another, but they're forever bonded thanks to Ramsay Bolton. Although, their bond actually goes back to season one. Since Theon is Ned Stark's ward, he grew up with the Stark children, and in many ways, he's one of them. But it's more than childhood history that makes seeing Theon and Sansa together again so poignant.

The last time they saw each other, Theon had just overcome the major trauma of being "Reek" to get Sansa to the safety of Brienne. During his time with Ramsay, the Greyjoy heir is beaten, tortured, and degraded. Before Sansa becomes Ramsay's bride, the Bolton bastard has already made Theon a eunuch and put him through unthinkable mental and physical torture. Things only get worse from there.

Serious Game of Thrones Question: Has Jon's Direwolf Been With Him This Whole Time?!
Game of Thrones is pulling out all the stops for its final set of episodes, with massive battles ahead and all sorts of character reunions and returns. In Sunday night's second episode of the season, a long-absent character finally reappeared - but not a character of the human kind. Jon's beloved direwolf pet, Ghost, appeared on screen for the first time in years! The shaggy white wolf was spotted in a scene where Jon and Sam are having a serious conversation about whether or not Jon has told Daenerys about last week's massive revelation (aka that Jon is actually a Targaryen - and Dany's biological nephew).

For the most part, Ghost has been absent on screen for a couple of seasons. In reality, it's most likely been a question of practicality: as Jon has been traveling around Westeros, there's no real story need to have his loyal direwolf companion with him,

Not Only Did Sam Kill a White Walker on Game of Thrones, It Was a Huge Deal
When thinking of "strong" characters on Game of Thrones, Samwell Tarly may not immediately come to mind. But he's done something that many of his physically adept comrades can't claim: he's killed a White Walker. In the final season's second episode, as Winterfell prepares for the big fight against the dead, Sam defends his position on the frontlines by listing some of his greater accomplishments, like slaying one of their zombie enemies. Can't remember when and how he did it?

Back in season two when the White Walkers are still a big mystery in Westeros, the Night's Watch go on a mission to investigate them. They stop at Craster's Keep, something of a safe house run by a wildling named Craster and his many daughter-wives. This is where Sam meets and falls for Gilly, who's pregnant with Craster's baby. Jon Snow finds out that Craster's not exactly the best dad,

So Even Daenerys Targaryen Is Cracking Jokes About Kit Harington's Height Now, Huh?
Kit Harington might not be what you'd call "statuesque," but it doesn't make him any less hot. While there has been some debate about the Game of Thrones star's actual height, both Google and IMDb list the 32-year-old as being 5'8".

So, Ok. Kit may not be the tall drink of water that some of his costars happen to be. But thanks to a sexy accent, sultry stare, and gorgeous set of curls, we barely even notice.

After years of separation, followed by this season's reunion, longtime crushes Arya and Gendry finally hooked up!

Reminder: Rhaegar Targaryen's Death Basically Caused Everything on Game of Thrones
Rhaegar Targaryen is arguably the most important Game of Thrones character, and until the season seven finale, we had never even seen him. His death marked the end of a long and complicated rebellion full of forbidden love and a plethora of fighting and murder. If you're wondering how or why he died, or perhaps you've forgotten, we are here to help, because he's definitely an important piece of the Westeros puzzle.

Rhaegar is the eldest son of "Mad" King Aerys II, making him heir to the Iron Throne and Daenerys's oldest brother. The Targaryens are allies with the Lannisters way back when at this time, and Cersei always thought she might marry Rhaegar, but the two families' peace falls apart when the Mad King instead marries Rhaegar to Elia Martell of Dorne, with whom he has two children. But everything really falls apart in the Seven Kingdoms when Rhaegar

Game of Thrones: How Brienne's Words to Jaime at the End of Season 7 Made a Lasting Impact
Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones ahead!

Ser Brienne of Tarth, a knight of the Seven Kingdoms, is now Lady Brienne's official title thanks to Jaime. But that beautiful moment that occurs during episode two of Game of Thrones season eight, between the Kingslayer and Brienne, may never have happened without the characters' last encounter at the dragonpit back in King's Landing. At the end of the season eight premiere, things weren't looking great for the Lannister knight. He begins the season's second episode pretty much where he ends the first one: standing before a long line of people who aren't too happy to see him. But Jaime's there because his word is worth risking his neck for. More importantly, he's there because Brienne's words about honor during their last encounter got to him in a major way, as he's quick to subtly remind her as he's making his case

Game of Thrones: Exactly How Old Are Arya and Gendry?
As Game of Thrones hurtles toward its endgame, moments of joy and lightheartedness will probably become pretty scarce. But viewers were treated to at least one sweet, funny scene in the season premiere when Arya Stark reunites with her old friend Gendry for the first time in several years. Now that they're both older, it wasn't hard to notice some pretty overt flirting between the duo. Like many Thrones characters, though, their ages aren't always clear - here's what we do know about the fan-favorite duo and just how age-appropriate their freshly consummated romance is.

Arya's age is pretty easy to pinpoint. Back in an early season one episode, she actually states her age on screen as 11. With seven years having elapsed on screen, just like in real life, Arya is now 18 years old. It's Gendry whose age has never quite been confirmed. The illegitimate son of Robert Baratheon

Florence + the Machine Recorded a Haunting Ballad For Game of Thrones Season 8
In case you weren't already aware, Game of Thrones and the vocals of singer Florence Welch are a match made in heaven. During the credits of season eight's second episode, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," we got to Florence + the Machine's take on "Jenny of Oldstones," which is an original tune sung by Podrick Payne earlier on in the episode.

The haunting ballad isn't on the season eight soundtrack - which includes songs from Maren Morris, Sza, The Weeknd, and more - so we're even more excited it made it into the show at all. Truthfully, we can't imagine a more fitting (and ethereal) musician to accompany the eerie ambiance of the series.
