The best way I can describe this season is to compare Benioff and Weiss to living with terrible roommates. At first, things are great because they were really happy to have a place to stay; they’re respectful, they do the dishes and help out with the chores. Then things start to get a little rocky, there are some disagreements on the placement of furniture or how to decorate. But the person who invited them in then forgives them and they come to a compromise. This is, though, the beginning of the end….
Okay. We’re almost done with Game of Thrones, only two episodes left, and to me, it hasn’t lived up to expectations. Maybe it’s because we’ve been so spoiled with the stunning quality of the writing and acting and production and direction that these last two seasons have been rushed to get the story finished. Things that were built up repeatedly over six seasons have been either ignored or forgotten. This includes character motivations, prophecies, battle preparations, and even geography (see King’s Landing). As a result, these prediction articles are getting increasingly difficult to write. So, with that being said, I’m going to try and ignore logic and give you my five predictions for this week’s episode.
On this issue of The Culture Comic Book News, Old Man Wade and The Valkyrie do an Avengers: Endgame recap full of spoilers! They talk about the all-woman scene and how it made Valkyrie feel as a woman. The Bug Thorbowski and why his physical change was both hilarious and made sense. Also, Old Man Wade randomly gets into Jessica Jones. So much more in this week’s issue!

Man, right off the bat this one slaps you in the face with raw emotional pain. I was wondering what the odd structures were in front of Winterfell, thinking maybe they were some kind of defenses. Nope; they were funeral pyres. There were actually fewer than I expected for the number of lives lost by the Winterfell army. Going by the pyres, I counted eight rows of ten of the three-decker pyres. Each of those held 22 bodies for a total of 1,760 dead. Then there was a row of single-deck pyres with ten bodies each and one at the end of each column of the triple-deckers for a total of eight pyres, giving us 80 bodies.
Okay, we’re halfway through the final season of this intense, often disturbing but never boring series. Many questions have been answered, but there are a lot that still remain. Most of these won’t be answered until the final episode, if ever. This episode is going to be nearly as long as The Long Night episode we just got, so there will be a lot that gets covered. I will say this and I’m so sure about this that I’m not considering it a prediction but a foregone conclusion – everyone who survived will engage in some post-battle lovin’. They’ll be happy to be alive, turned on, and ready to pair up. That aside, here are a few things that I think we just might learn in the next episode.
Sweet zombie Lyanna Mormont, what an episode! Having recently also seen Avengers Endgame, I can say without hyperbole that this was the most emotional Nerd weekend of my entire life. Just for the record, I will not be going in order as to how I recap this episode – I will be jumping around quite a bit for the sake of the narrative.
Issue # 2: This week’s news, breaking down the NSFW The Boys trailer, Avengers: Endgame thoughts, more!
Okay, this is it. This big one. The one we’ve concurrently anticipated and dreaded. The dead have arrived at Winterfell. Winter is no longer coming, Winter is here. What will happen? What will we see? Most importantly, who will make it through the battle? Here are my thoughts on these topics and more.
If you are a crazy person like me and are also planning on watching every Marvel movie ahead of Avengers: End Game then you are in luck. If you are going to do it, you best come correct and do it in chronological order. I have painstakingly put together this swanky list featuring Marvel movie posters to make this list both easily digestible and purtty. Grab a bags of popcorn or some Popeyes (it’s is the shiznit) and go all Clockwork Orange and binge all of these in a row right now! You’re welcome. You’re ALL WELCOME!
There is a lot to unpack from this episode…
With the annual Superstar Shake-up in the books, let’s take a moment to look at the who won, lost, and should seriously contemplate calling Impact or AEW (*snicker*… just kidding) below!
Based on the events of the first episode, and clues that we received from the trailer I think we’re going to see a lot of the plot revolve around Jaime Lannister. On that note, let me just dive right into the predictions.
Issue #1: In the first issues of the Culture Comic Book News, Old Man Wade tells us the latest on the Disney + streaming service, and gives us his comic picks for the week, old school and new!
8:00 PM- I have to say… this Superstar shake-up thing is silly. Why not have a draft with picks and arguing and so forth. This seemingly random selection shit is silly. They go out of their way to over explain angles but put little to no effort into the presentation of the “shake-up”. This stuff was only interesting when Ric Flair and Vince McMahon were in charge of Raw and Smackdown. Them having to go out on the stage and make picks was great TV. We need more, damn it!!! Mooooore!
