Game of Thrones's Gwendoline Christie Warns We'll All Need Therapy When the Show Ends

Although the stars of Game of Thrones have been sworn to secrecy about the final season, many of the cast and crew have accidentally let a few things slip as to what we can expect—at least emotionally.

Hannah Murray, who plays Gilly, said Season 8 is “not like a fairytale happy ending.” Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, admitted that “everyone cried at one point” (Kit Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, cried twice). And Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, thinks the finale will divide fans—an opinion she shares with co-star Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark. So while we may not know who's going to live or die, we should at least be prepared to stock up on some tissues. And, if Gwendoline Christie is right, you may want to pre-book an appointment with a therapist.

Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth, believes that Season 8 could be extremely emotional for some fans. "You're going to need therapy," she boldly told E! News at the premiere of Robert Zemeckis's Welcome to Marwen, in which she stars alongside Steve Carell, Janelle Monáe, and Eiza González. "I think just the show ending is going to send all of the world into professional help."

"I think it's going to make me incredibly emotional," Christie continued. "We're all emotional about the fact that this is the end, and this is the end of something incredibly significant for all of us, and it's been a truly incredible thing to be a part of."

Although we will soon see the end of Game of Thrones, the exploration of Westeros is far from over. The prequel series, rumored to be called The Long Night, begins filming in early 2019. In the meantime, the final season of Game of Thrones will premiere in April 2019.

Netflix's Stranger Things Season 3 Video Is Full of Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Stranger Things's third season was full of many surprising twists and turns, not to mention some awkward teen romances. While the gruesome Mind Flayer and the evil Russians were no doubt terrifying, the show kept its sweet touch of nostalgia due mainly to the fact that the Hawkins gang is now smack-dab in the middle of the 1980s.

It doesn’t take a keen eye to see many of the series's '80s references, particularly in the latest season. With scenes taking place at the new mall, references from the decade—including Hot Dog on a Stick, Sam Goody, and Back to the Future—are all part of the setting. However, creators Ross and Matt Duffer wanted to pay true homage to the decade, and thus left Easter eggs throughout the season that you likely missed.

Luckily for us, as BGR reports, Netflix has just released a video explaining the hidden references (with the New Coke debate, Mrs. Wheeler’s erotica novel, and Hopper’s Tom Selleck-inspired Hawaiian shirt among some of our favorites).

Check out the full video above and see what you missed!

Disney's Lady and the Tramp Remake Will Star a Mixed-Breed Rescue Dog Named Monte

Following the success of The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp will be the next classic Disney movie to be revamped in 2019. And while most of Disney's live-action remakes boast star-studded casts, the lead in this upcoming film is totally unknown. That's because Monte, a mixed-breed dog from Phoenix, Arizona, spent his pre-Hollywood days living in animal shelters.

As AZ Central reports, Monte will make his film debut as Tramp when Lady and the Tramp releases alongside the launch of Disney+, the company's upcoming streaming service, on November 12. In the original 1955 animated movie, Tramp was portrayed as a mutt who lived on the streets, so instead of looking for a purebred dog to portray the character, producers stayed faithful to the source material.

Monte lived in a New Mexico animal shelter before transferring to HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix. When the filmmakers went there in search of a star for their movie, he instantly won them over. Like Tramp, Monte is a mixed-breed dog, but the shelter doesn't know exactly what his background is, other than being part terrier. Despite his scrappy appearance, Monte is very well-behaved. He knows how to sit, walk on a leash, and he's friendly with everyone he meets, according to the shelter.

The Lady and the Tramp crew adopted Monte in April 2018, and earlier this month, Disney released the first promotional image of him for the film. It features Monte snuggling up with his co-star, Rose, who plays Lady. True to the original, Lady is portrayed by a purebred cocker spaniel. Though you likely don't recognize the dogs on the poster, you may have heard of the voice actors who will bring them to life: Justin Theroux is playing Tramp and Tessa Thompson is Lady.
