In his June 16 monologue, Late Late Show host James Corden had some words to say about the Game of Thrones season 5 finale, its spoilers and the people who avoid such spoilers.

"The show's about dragons and inc*st, who would have thought it ended well?"

Before you cry "they already did that!" consider what Martin says about next season: "People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy. So everybody better be on their toes. David and D.B. are even bloodier than I am." (Emphasis added)  So far most of the deaths the show has added have made sense; they gave heroic ends to characters that sort of just milled about in the books until you forgot about them.  But to say the show's writers creators are even bloodier than GRRM sounds a bit more substantial.  Who do you think might meet their end on the show that's still around in the books?

Spoilers for the last episode, you readers



That incredible white walkers vs. the wildlings battle which took place in the Hardhome episode hid some faces that made the whole thing just a little more metal.

The band Mastadon were among the many wildlings that took part in the fight. The Wall Street Journal has the story:

Brann Dailor, Bill Kelliher and Brent Hinds of Mastodon, the Atlanta-based group known for epic thrash albums such as "Crack the Skye" and "Leviathan," were cast as shaggy Wildlings that didn't escape the attack by the White Walkers and their Army of the Dead on the encampment at Hardhome, North of the Wall. After the massacre, they become wights themselves, ready to serve the White Walkers' ruler, the Night King.

It is "probably one of the most amazing sequences on the show, as a whole," drummer and lyricist Dailor told Speakeasy in a telephone interview Monday. He should know: "Game of Thrones" is a "rallying point" for the band and its crew, he said.



It's tough to tell whether they brought their own wardrobe or whether the production department had to dress them.
