Freeze All Motor Functions and Watch the First Teaser For Westworld Season 3
Westworld is back, and it looks like the action in season three is going to introduce a ton of new stories and transport us to new, eye-popping destinations.

Joining Wood and Paul in the next season are new cast members Lena Waithe, Scott Mescudi, Marshawn Lynch, and more, and the trailer confirms that season three will drop at some point in 2020. Fingers crossed it comes sooner than later!

Sophie Turner Thinks Game of Thrones Got Sansa's Ending Just Right:
Warning: huge Game of Thrones spoilers ahead!

Fans have a lot of feelings about the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones - so many that they actually felt the need to start a petition demanding a rewrite of the whole thing - but after all is said and done, the game has been won - kind of. There isn't an Iron Throne to actually win, but Bran Stark still winds up being King of the Seven Six Kingdoms, with his big sister nabbing the one thing she's been fighting for since she escaped King's Landing as a child: a truly independent North.

Yeah, that's right, Sansa Stark claims the North's independence after a tribunal crowns her brother as King of the Andals and First Men. The Lady of Winterfell and de facto Warden of the North turns to her royal brother and tells Bran that the North is

Tyrion's Final Line on Game of Thrones Is More Significant Than You Might Think
Game of Thrones is no stranger to throwing subtle callbacks to previous seasons into the show's dialogue, so it's no surprise that the final line uttered in the series finale is one that holds a more significant meaning than fans may have initially thought.

During the episode's final moments, Tyrion sits on the Small Council alongside Bronn, Brienne, Ser Davos, and Sam as they discuss their plans to rebuild King's Landing and whip Westeros back into shape now that a new king has been chosen. Always one to prioritize, Bronn, the new Master of Coin, mentions rebuilding the brothels that were were destroyed when Daenerys torched the city. This, of course, sets off a discussion among the group about which tasks should actually come first, but it also inspires Tyrion to deliver the final line of the series: "I once brought a jackass and a honeycomb into a brothel," he says.

10 Iconic Game of Thrones Episodes That Will Remind You How Good the Show Can Be
For nine years and 73 episodes, Game of Thrones has shocked and enthralled fans of fantasy, adventure, and romance alike.

Fleabag: Here's the Heartbreakingly Hopeful Song That Plays at the End of Season 2

  • Popsugar
Fleabag returned with its second and final season this month, and as much as it pains me to say it, the Amazon series is wrapped up beautifully. Writer and actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge did an incredible job showing the growth, frailty, and depth of not just Fleabag herself but the other lead characters as well.

As far as the soundtrack goes, most of what we hear throughout season two is dramatic, sweeping choral music, which pairs nicely with the will-they-or-won't-they romance Fleabag has with The Priest (played expertly by Andrew Scott). The music was actually written and composed by Waller-Bridge's older sister, Isobel, but the show turned to something more contemporary for its tearjerking final scene.

After sharing a sweet moment with Dad at his wedding to Godmother and urging her sister Claire to profess her love for a coworker, Fleabag is waiting at the bus stop to go home. She's joined by The Priest,

The 10 Worst Game of Thrones Episodes of All Time
The internet is still on fire after what many consider the most disastrous season in Game of Thrones history. Thankfully, the HBO series is one of those shows that, even at its worst, is still better than just about everything else on television. Nevertheless, some episodes seem designed to court the mutual disdain of its audience like season five's "High Sparrow" (and just about any episode containing the Sand Snakes). Other episodes find themselves on the wrong side of fan love because of their misguided political messages, like Daenerys's liberation of the Yunkai slaves in season three's "Mhysa." But no matter how you define it, our beloved series has produced some duds. So, as we bid a teary farewell to the people of Westeros, let's count down 10 of the show's worst episodes.
