With the final season of Game of Thrones premiering in less than three months, the big question on everyone's mind is who will ultimately sit on the Iron Throne. While we all have our own guesses as to who will emerge victorious in the finale, we're also aware that pretty much anyone could die. As this is the last season, it would be silly to assume that anyone is safe.

Many of the series' stars have hinted at what we can expect when it comes to who lives and who dies; Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, called herself the "last woman standing," while Peter Dinklage hinted that his character, Tyrion Lannister, will die. Dublin-born actor Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, has an even darker prediction: no one will live.

While talking to host Ryan Tubridy on Ireland's The Late Late Show, Cunningham hinted that Davos will meet his demise in Season 8, along with many of his co-stars. "Congratulations for staying in the picture because there's death all around you," Tubridy told the actor, to which he replied:

"So far, so far. That doesn't mean anything. We're all going to die. Don't forget 'Valar Morghulis,' which is one of the phrases on the show which means 'all men must die.'"

Cunningham went on to clarify, "I haven't said anything," after Tubridy got excited over his statement, however he is definitely hinting at the many deaths we were already expecting.

It wouldn't be a total shock to see Davos be one of the many to die in Season 8, but we won't know for sure until Game of Thrones returns for its final season on April 14, 2019.

Stranger Things is great at placing the truly terrifying alongside the absolutely adorable. One minute we are gushing over Eleven and Mike’s teen romance, and the next we’re jumping off the couch at the sight of those possessed by the Mind Flayer.

No matter how seamless the Duffer Brothers' Netflix series is in weaving together these moments, it seems like it would be impossible to make the Demogorgon cute. But somehow, one crafty fan has done just that.

Etsy shop ThatCraftyFriendShop has created Demogorgon headpieces that fit perfectly on your dog’s head.

People reports that the headpieces range in size from extra small (for 5- to 10-pound dogs) all the way to extra large (for dogs over 75 pounds). Prices range from $25 to $75, depending on the size of your four-legged friend.

These wool and felt doggy costumes are perfect for Halloween, or even a Stranger Things watch party while you continue to binge and re-binge the third seasonwith a decked-out doggy by your side.

J.K. Rowling Reveals How San Francisco Inspired Major Harry Potter Location

The award-winning play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is about to open at the Curran Theater in San Francisco. The two-part drama takes place 19 years after the events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and depicts Harry’s life as his son, Albus, is about to begin school at Hogwarts.

J.K. Rowling has pointed out that San Francisco had a deep influence on the original Harry Potter novels, SFGate reports. In the video below, Rowling talks about how Alcatraz, the infamous former prison, inspired her creation of Azkaban.

"[San Francisco] is a very distinctive, special place—I love the feel of it, I love the architecture,” Rowling said. “I've actually said this before, but Azkaban is a combination of Alcatraz and Abbadon, which is an old word for hell. I squeezed those words together. The idea of the rock in the middle of the ocean was directly inspired by a visit to Alcatraz."

With its mist and Gothic mood, it’s no wonder this slice of San Francisco inspired a big part of the Harry Potter world.
