    7 days ago - By GameSpot

    Cersei's pregnancy is one of the most unpredictable plotlines in the final season of Game of Thrones. Is the Lannister queen really pregnant? There's plenty of evidence to go either way. But one theory has emerged as our favorite overall, and it involves a real pregnancy, a treacherous turn from Tyrion, and a bargain that Daenerys is not going to be happy about, should she ever find out about it. First, let's get this out of the way: It's highly likely that Cersei is lying about her pregnancy. Besides her generally duplicitous nature and the fact that she manipulates everyone around her...

    We got a lot of long-awaited reunions in the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones. Characters who haven't seen each other in years, or at least a few seasons, met back up again. Sometimes those reunions were happy ones, while others were decidedly less so (Jaime locking eyes with Bran was a bit chilling).

Arya is now a consummate fighter and assassin with the power of the Faceless Men, while Gendry is...
