Game of Thrones Fan Argues Direwolves’ Names Hint at the Starks’ Fates

Game of Thrones is known for its complex history and character plots, so it's easy for fans to sometimes get lost in all the details. But if you watch closely, it seems that even the tiniest details might be there for a reason—and possibly foreshadow major moments to come. At least that's the argument that one fan is now making when it comes to the names of the Stark kids’ direwolves, and how they might have been hidden spoilers all along.

According to Redditor RidgeRomaSergey, the name of each Stark child's direwolf predicts the character's fate. For instance, Jon Snow’s direwolf is named Ghost, which mirrors Jon's own life-and-death (and life again) journey. Sansa Stark’s pup was named Lady, and now Sansa is literally the Lady of Winterfell. Robb Stark—who was killed by the Freys, who have the color gray in their house sigil—had a direwolf named Grey Wind.

While these fates have come to fruition, the theorist claims that since Arya Stark’s direwolf Nymeria is named after the Princess of the Rhoynar—who is remembered as a warrior queen—Arya will be victorious and possibly win the Iron Throne. Though it’s been proven that Nymeria wasn’t in battle, she was a powerful leader. And as for Bran Stark’s direwolf Summer: this could suggest that the youngest living Stark will be the key to defeating the Night King in the final season, bringing summer back to the North.

The theory is surprisingly convincing, though it could just be coincidental. But considering that Game of Thrones’s visual effects supervisor Joe Bauer has already confirmed that Ghost will return in season 8—and that he'll do “some pretty cool things”—we can’t totally dismiss this idea yet.

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.
