Game of Thrones: 19 Lingering Questions from That Finale

Game of Thrones may have sky-rocketed to global popularity due in part to its penchant for blood, gore, sex, violence and suspense.

But the biggest surprise of the Game of Thrones finale may have been how the writers tossed all these aspects of the series aside and instead focused on…

… a lot of very boring talking.

That was our main takeaway from a pretty awful final episode.

We explained why we believed this to be the case HERE, but now we’re back with a different take on Season 8 Episode 6.

We’re here to ask a handful of questions about what we just witnessed, from character motivations to confusing plot points and everything in between…

1. That’s All It Took to Kill Cersei and Jaime?

Thats all it took to kill cersei and jaime
A single layer of bricks? Sort of seems like they could have recovered from that sort of blow — or moved a few feet to the left and have avoided the entire avalanche!

2. What Happened After Jon Killed Dany?

Dead dany
Just literally: What happened? Drogon (more on him momentarily) flew away with Dany’s corpse… so did Jon confess to the Unsullied? Did they find him crying over what he had just done? Did he run out and confess? How the heck did the show decide NOT to include this very practical and necessary detail?

3. And Then What Happened?

And then what happened
Greyworm almost killed Jon for touching his arm and trying to stop him from killing Cersei’s soldiers early in the episode. In what universe do the Unsullied not kill Jon the nanosecond they learn he’s murdered their queen?

4. Instead, They…

Instead they
… contact the Lords and Ladies of Westeros and ask them to pay King’s Landing a visit after they decide to simply imprison Jon for his Queen killing?!?!?

5. Did Drogon think the Pointy Chair killed His Mom? Or Was He Keenly Aware of the Dangers of a Monarchy and Just Really Adept at Identifying Physical Symbolism?

Did drogon think the pointy chair killed his mom or was he keenl
Gotta be one or the other, right?

6. Why the Eff Did Anyone Listen to Tyrion?

Jailed ty
The guy just spent the past several months strongly advocating to Dany; to such an extent that he basically sentenced his best friend to death because Varys disagreed. And now everyone is just totally on board with his Bran-for-King recommendation? Could Tyrion possibly just be a bad judge of character?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 Salaries: REVEALED!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is the highest rated reality show on Bravo.

Its ratings actually put all other related franchise — from Orange County to New Jersey to New York – to shame.

Therefore, despite Season 11 only just ending a couple weeks ago at the time of this writing, there’s no doubt that Season 12 is on the way.

But while it’s too early to know what sort of storylines the writers will come up with for episodes next year, it’s actually not too early to know how much various cast members will be paid for following these dramatic arcs.

Indeed, Radar Online has obtained the salary information for all returning Housewives.

Scroll down to see who is taking a huge pay cut and which of these women is about to make some serious bank…

1. Who’s Staying and Who’s Going?

Whos staying and whos going
This information will also be revealed as you read on…

2. Shamari DeVoe

Shamari DeVoe made $250,000 for Season 11. She will not return as a full-time cast member on Season 12, but will make the occasional cameo.

3. Tanya Sam

Tanya Sam will receive a raise from her inaugural season, earning $150,000 for Season 12 after making just $100,000 her first season.

4. Marlo Hampton

Marlo Hampton earned a whopping $275,000 on Season 11 and will reportedly receive a bump to $300,000 for Season 12.

5. Eva Marcille

Eva marcille
Not shabby here, either: Eva Marcille spent a ton on her lavish wedding, but she’ll be going from $250,000 per season to $275,000 per season and this should help offset those costs.

6. Kenya Moore

Wait… Kenya Moore?!? Yup, she got the boot after Season 10 for running off and getting married without telling Bravo and having it filmed for the show. But she’ll be back on Season 12, Radar claims.

Kailyn Lowry: Hmmm… Maybe I Should Care for Jenelle’s Daughter!

As you most likely know by now, Jenelle Evans has lost custody of her two kids and her stepdaughter.

It’s unclear when, if ever, the recently-fired Teen Mom 2 cast member will be able to take these children home with her again, considering the widely accepted belief that this home is simply not safe for them.

The authorities finally agreed with this notion after David Eason admitted to murdering his family’s dog.

Many Teen Mom fans and cast members have opinions on this development, but the one most people cares about belongs to Kailyn Lowry.

Did she pile on to her nemesis when asked about the situation by TMZ?

Or did Kailyn try to come across as sensitive and diplomatic?

Scroll down to see her responses to a few questions… including at least one that will cause your jaw to smash into the floor at an unprecented speed.

1. Jenelle and Kailyn Hate Each Other

Jenelle and kailyn split
Like, totally and completely hate each other. They were actually friends once, but then Jenelle told the world that Lowery was pregnant with her third child before her fellow reality star was prepared to make this announcement… and it’s all been very much downhill since then.

2. How Have They Beefed?

We mean, how much time do you have?!? Just a few months ago, Kailyn sent Jenelle some products from her beauty line — only for Evans to actually burn and film herself doing it.

3. There Was Also the Murder Threat

Jenelle was recently hanging out with her mom when the latter threatened to murder Kailyn.

4. Kailyn Tried to Save the Friendship

“I’ve done a lot for her through the years,” Lowry told a friend this year on a Teen Mom 2 episode. “I really truly stuck up for her the most in the beginning.”

5. Explains Please?

“I bailed her out of jail,” Kailyn said on this same episode. “I called out of work one day when she was strung out on drugs and I drove to Jersey, picked her up and took her to the airport because she was strung out on fucking heroin who the f-ck knows.”

6. But Jenelle Has Never Wanted to Hear This

“Lmfao don’t act like you’re my hero now. You gave me a ride in the past to pick up my mom… that’s helping someone’s entire life and doing ‘so much’ for them?” Jenelle Tweeted in response to Lowry’s claims.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor: What Does His Birth Certificate Reveal?

A-Ha!

One mahor Royal Mystery has officially been solved.

Almost two weeks removed from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcoming their first child into the world, Kensington Palace has made Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s birth certificate available to the public.

Yes, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

We may still need a little while to get used to that name.

Regardless, however, the document that confirms he actually exists does list a couple of interesting tidbits on it.

For starters, the little one was born at the private Portland Hospital in Westminster.

The whereabouts of just where Meghan and Harry went for this blessed event was kept under wraps until now, with some outlets writing that Markle was even considering going WAY against Royal Tradition and going with a home birth.

But she thought better of it in the end.

As for what else the certificate tells us?

One interesting note is that this paper lists Meghan’s official job title as “Princess of the United Kingdom.� (Harry’s is listed as “Prince of the United Kingdom.�)

A former star on the USA Network legal drama Suits, Markle worked as an actress for many years.

However, she was forced to give this line of work up when she fell in love with a Royal.

Her official title is Duchess of Sussex, but now we know that her occupation is apparently that of “princess,” whatever that entails exactly.

As also mentioned on this certificate, Archie Harrison was born on May 6 at 5:26 a.m., weighing 7 lbs. 3 oz.

He is seventh in the line to the British throne, but his parents are determined to give him a normal childhood. As normal as possible under their circumstances, that is.

Along those lines, however, they’ve moved away from Kensington Palace in favor of a home in the country, Frogmore Cottage; and they’ve opted not to give Archie a royal title.

Naturally, and sadly, Markle has been criticized already for these decisions.

Some Brits will simply hate her forever.

But at least Harry loves his wife very much, along with the child they’ve created together through sexual intercourse.

“As every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon,” the Prince said in his first remarks about Archie.

“He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm,” Meghan later added.

Meghan and Harry got married in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May of 2018.

They announced that they were expecting their first child five months after their nuptials.

For an extended look at the precious little boy… here you go!
