Game of Thrones Star Sophie Turner Reveals What She Stole from the Set

It's practically a rite of passage for actors to steal their favorite props and costumes from their big-budget productions. David Tennant kept the Tenth Doctor's sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who, while Robert Downey Jr. somehow made off with a 30-foot "A" from The Avengers and Emma Watson laid claim to pretty much half of the props department from each Harry Potter movie.

And now, ​Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is adding her name to the list of Hollywood thieves by revealing at a New York Comic Con panel that not only did she walk off the set of the final season with her favorite corset, but that her costars Kit Harington and Maisie Williams went ahead and claimed ownership of their respective swords.

Turner's decision to rat out her costars is just like something Sansa Stark would do in order to divert attention to others, even when she's confessing to her own crimes. To be fair, ​Harington has already discussed how he has wanted to keep his sword, Longclaw, since day one. "There's only one that I've ever wanted: I want my sword," he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"The first season they were like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah of course,' and as the seasons went on and the show became more and more popular and ​that sword's value went up, they became slowly quieter about it," Harington added. He has yet to confirm if he took matters into his own hands, but it seems as if Turner has now brought his burglary to light.

For her part, ​Williams was much more secretive about the whole affair. While she has kept mum on the whereabouts of her sword, Needle, she'd kept attention off her by previously unveiling to the BBC that she had stolen Arya's brown leather jacket.

"I can imagine it being something that I'm like, 'Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore," she joked in the interview. "And my grandkids being like, 'Please stop.'"

It's unlikely that Williams or Harington will be bringing their blades to any red carpet events anytime soon, so the last time you'll prbably be able to see Longclaw and Needle (and Sansa's corset for that matter) will be in the ​eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, set to air sometime in the first half of 2019.

Bran Reveals Meaning of the Three-Eyed Raven and How That Impacts Future of Westeros

Earlier this year, Night King actor Vladimir Furdik confirmed that his Game of Thrones character "has a target he wants to kill," and it appears that last night's episode, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," may have revealed who that person is: Bran Stark, who is now the Three-Eyed Raven. In a meeting before the dead march on Winterfell, Bran says, “He’ll come for me. He’s tried before. Many times, with many Three-eyed Ravens.”

When explaining why it's him the Night King wants, Bran revealed what the Three-Eyed Raven does, and what his death would mean for Westeros.

According to Bran, the Night King's goal is "An endless night. He wants to erase this world." Bran goes on to say, "I am its memory," referring to the fact that he, as the Three-Eyed Raven, knows everything that has happened in the history of Westeros. To this, Sam Tarly replies, "Memories don’t come from books. And your stories aren’t just stories. If I wanted to erase the world of men, I’d start with you.”

The Night King was able to get his hands on Bran in a vision, and Bran is permanently marked from the encounter, which means the Night King always knows where he is. Now, Bran—guarded by Theon—will serve as bait to lure the Night King into Winterfell.

Could this be foreshadowing the fact that Bran won't see the end of the season? We'll just have to wait and see what's coming in episode three and beyond.

Game of Thrones's Episode 3 Teaser May Contain a Hidden Message from Daenerys to Jon

Season 8, episode 2 of Game of Thrones, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," had its fair share of moments that could have given away hints for episodes to come, like in the writers' decision to include "Jenny's Song," or in Jon Snow telling Daenerys Targaryen that they're related.

One fan theory about the fate of Westeros, however, comes from the previews for next week's episode. Posted by Reddit user IgnorantSportsFan, the theory centers around one pivotal line uttered during a conversation between Daenerys and Jon: "The dead are already here."

"That line happens between Dany and Jon, and felt super significant—but we already see the army of the dead, felt it was too obvious to be their reaction to them," the theory begins."Then it clicked: The crypt is full of dead people. All episode they keep repeating and emphasizing how safe it was in the crypt, but its GOT and we cannot have nice things. So is it possible we have old Starks rising from the crypts? Or is that too far fetched?"

The theory certainly adds up, emphasized by the reminder that there were clips included of Arya Stark fighting in the crypts.

Could the dead be rising in the crypts of Winterfell as the White Walkers rapidly approach? We'll find out soon.
