Sure, Game of Thrones’ Battle of the Bastards aired a couple of weeks ago and many things have happened in life and on the Internet since then.

The final episode of Game of Thrones’ sixth season was full of bloodshed, carnage and, oh yeah, lots and lots of death. However, there was one tiny exception: The part where Samwell Tarly walks into a library—specifically, the giant library of the Citadel, where Sam will study to be a maester.
John Bradley talks about those Sam Tarly/Citadel theories on Game of Thrones. A sequel to cult classic Goonies is looking even less likely. Kevin Smith confirms his Flash return. Plus, a new clip from The Killing Joke, and when to expect the return of American Horror Story. Behold, Spoilers!

Ladies and Gentlemen, for the past ten weeks io9 has set up a post-Game of Thrones chat thread for fans to feverishly ruminate on the events of the latest episode.
