Sophie Turner Thinks Game of Thrones Finale Will Divide Fans

All the cryptic things the Game of Thrones cast has been saying about the final season are just confusing us, honestly, but Sophie Turner is here to give us some straight up information: We will all disagree on the ending.

While we were expecting the series finale to be ​"bittersweet" as George RR Martin himself has teased, this bold statement from Turner has got us scared. Kit Harington has already ​revealed the show's ending will not make everyone happy, and Turner—who plays Sansa Stark—seems to agree.

"I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying—I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines—to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us," Turner told IGN of the ending. "Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans."

"I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon," the 22-year-old actress elaborated. What could possibly happen to our people of Westeros that will actually divide us as fans? Could it be a ​major character's death? Or maybe ​everyone dies?

Continuing on about what we can expect from season eight, Turner said that Sansa will take "ownership over who she is and what she stands for."

"Over the course of the series she’s been completely unaware of what she wants, where she wants to be, who she really is, and at the end of this season, I feel she is the most self-assured character in the show," she added. And as Maisie Williams has just ​revealed the final season will be big for the female characters, we believe Turner.

Hopefully we'll see the final season be big for all the characters, whether we agree on the ending or not, when Game of Thrones returns in the first half of 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.
