With its majestic scale and scorched earth mayhem, Game of Thrones' season six epic Battle of the Bastards remains one of TV's most thrilling moments in recent years.
As a reminder: Election Day is Coming on Tuesday November 6th.
The European Union, backed by France, Germany and Britain, says they "deeply regret" the reimposition of all USA sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal. For Game of Thrones fans, the name provides a huge piece of information that had previously been the subject of speculation, because it suggests the prequel will hinge on a very specific, and very terrifying, moment in the history of Westeros.
Premium network HBO isn't feeling what President Donald Trump is up to on social media. "Winter is Coming' is a foreboding line that warns of a deep freeze that will herald an army of the undead from the north to conquer other lands". Which actually did happen, several re-tweets of the poster mocked Trump for his insensitive and politically dismissive remarks.
But HBO told The Hollywood Reporter that "we were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes".
Even "Game of Thrones" cast members weighed in - and didn't seem to enjoy the reference.
The issue also includes an interview with "Game of Thrones" season 8 co-executive producer Bryan Cogman, who shared his thoughts on the upcoming installment. Williams, who plays the assassin Arya Stark, quote tweeted the image, and captioned it with the phrase, "Not today".
"Trump! You must not threaten our nation and must not insult our president..."
The network wasn't the only one connected to Game of Thrones to respond to Trump's tweet.
The battle is also said to have more than one focus in play.
As reported in a new exclusive look by Entertainment Weekly into the show's coming final season, Weiss and Benioff wondered if that might be the best way to ensure they got the time and money to do the show's final episodes right.
