Why Does Tyrion Look So Concerned in the New Game of Thrones Trailer? Fans Have a Theory

The creators of Game of Thrones are certainly under a lot of pressure to make the upcoming final season the best one yet. Between the many unanswered questions we're looking to have resolved, at least one epic battle, and a handful of confrontations we know our favorite characters must have, the HBO series has a lot on the line. And the first full-length trailer for season 8, which was released last week, only added to that hype, as it has raised even more questions and has fans offering up a dizzying number of theories about what might happen when the show comes to an end.

One character who has created quite a buzz is Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister. While he's barely in the trailer at all, the few seconds that do feature him are extremely telling. He stands there, with a concerned expression on his face, staring up at the sky looking at … something. This, of course, has led to a stream of speculation about what that something could be. The Huffington Post has posed an interesting theory—and one with enough evidence behind it that it might just be true: Tyrion could very well be watching Jon Snow ride a dragon.

Back in season 7, fans began suspecting that Jon would be riding a dragon in the final season, with many believing he's ready to in one of the scenes in the new trailer. But why should we be so sure Tyrion is looking at this? Well, HuffPost points out an important detail: In a poster for season 5 and the trailer for season 7, Tyrion is looking up at a dragon. And in the trailer for season 6, we see him getting ready to unchain Dany's dragons. The show's promos clearly love to pair together Tyrion and at least one of these creatures, so it wouldn't be surprising if it was the same for the final season.

On top of that, the last time we saw Tyrion, he was looking equally as distressed after discovering that Jon and Daenerys had become romantically involved. Keeping with this theme, it's easy to believe he's again looking at one of them, if not both, in the scene in question. The personal and political relationship among these three will no doubt be important in the upcoming episodes.

Game of Thrones returns on April 14, 2019.

The Office Star Angela Kinsey Would Love to Do a Reunion Special

Whenever a classic TV show is brought back for a revival, it usually splits the fanbase in half. While some people are happy to see their favorite characters return, others are worried about the series coming back in lackluster fashion. And when it comes to the idea of a potential reboot of The Office, the series' cast is just as split.

Steve Carell has been very public about not wanting NBC to bring the show back, but Angela Kinsey is siding with co-stars John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ellie Kemper about welcoming a potential return to Scranton. The 48-year-old actress, who portrayed Angela Martin on the series, recently spoke with PopCulture.com, confirming she’d love to revisit the show.

"I would definitely be up for a reunion," Kinsey said. "I know a few cast members have talked about a special reunion episode to see where everyone is at. I would love that!"

Although many are torn on the idea of bringing The Office back, most fans would certainly be curious enoug to tune in and see what's going on with the Dunder Mifflin crew. Kinsey is no exception, saying, “I would love to know where these people are! I loved the show, I still love the show. I think it really holds up. I'm so thrilled that new audiences are finding it, so I would love that!"

Will it ever happen? It's hard to say. But while we wait to see if any official announcement is made, you can at least still binge The Office on Netflix and try to imagine what creepy thing Cousin Mose is doing these days.

Harry Potter Fans Don’t Want to See the Movies Rebooted, Surprising No One

Although the Harry Potter franchise has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the world, that doesn’t mean fans are ready to see the series rebooted just yet. Yes, that would mean more movies to feed one’s obsession, but the general consensus is that it would be entirely too soon. Don’t believe us? A new poll might just prove it.

ComingSoon.net asked more than 2000 Potterheads if Warner Bros. should reboot the Harry Potter movie series, and a whopping 72 percent said they’re against it. The website also asked fans if reboots were made, how they should be done. Of those polled, 41 percent voted for it to be a direct sequel about Harry’s son, 35 percent voted for a spinoff TV series, 13 percent wanted another Fantastic Beasts spinoff, and a measly 11 percent showed support for a remake of all eight original films.

While it doesn’t look like a reboot will be in the works anytime soon (J.K. Rowling’s representatives just debunked a report about a TV series), that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for the future. Even star Daniel Radcliffe has entertained the idea, saying he believes he won’t be the last Potter portrayal he’ll see in his lifetime. But as long as Rowling and fans are against it, we probably won’t have to worry about it for a while.
