The team that’s bringing Confederate, the just-announced alt-history drama in which the south secedes from the Union after a second Civil War and maintains slavery in present-day America, to HBO have heard the many, many concerns expressed about the series, and have an answer: We understand, but please hold your…

The latest character killed on Game of Thrones (don’t worry, we won’t spoil it yet just in case) certainly caused a roller coaster of reactions.

So when we see an event that’s not in the books, it’s hard to tell if it’s a spoiler for Winds of Winter, or another sidetrack. Except we just got one big hint.

You might already know that Game of Thrones filmed a pilot that never aired. With different actors playing Daenerys and Catelyn, and a few other changes. Not much is known about this earlier Thrones pilot, except for a few hints — but a copy of the script was posted online. Here's all the scoop about the Westeros you…
We were overjoyed the other day to read that the producers of HBO's Game of Thrones have no intention of having the show last 10 seasons, because that would "strangle the golden goose." Because they're right. Here's why 10 seasons of Thrones would be a very bad thing.
