The better news: Season 7's midpoint ended with a kick ass, fire-breathing battle. But the best news: we finally got our mother fucking Stark family reunion, y'all!!!! Related: Game Of Thrones Hackers Threaten To Leak Even More! Sunday's fiery hour of the HBO fantasy hit gave fans almost everything they wanted -- including Arya back at Winterfell, an intimate cave scene that would make Ygritte jealous, and Daenerys finally taking Westeros by Stormborn. Read our recap of Episode 4: The Spoils of War (below)! [Spoils!] The Wolfpack Is Back It's been six long years of hiding out, bad haircuts, and learning how to be an assassin -- but Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) has finally returned to her home in the North. After being held at the gates of Winterfell by two annoying guards who don't believe she's who she says she is (OMG, just let her IN!) a girl has a lukewarm reunion with her big sis Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). The Stark girls have an intimate catch up -- Sansa's now Lady of the North, Arya's killed dozens of enemies on her list, etc., etc. -- before Sansa shares that another sibling has returned home: Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright). Arya's reunion with Bran The Three Eyed Raven is slightly less awkward than his oh-BTW-I-know-about-that-time-you-got-raped chat with Sansa in last week's episode. He gifts Arya with a sexy new dagger and mentions her list, making Sansa realize he might not be lying about this whole clairvoyant thing after all. The coolest part of Arya's homecoming is when she challenges Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) to some friendly sword combat. After flattering Brienne by pointing out she's the only person at Winterfell who defeated The Hound, Arya shows off the deadly skills she picked up over the past few seasons. Who taught her such badass moves? "No one." (LOL, get it?) Fire And Ice Get Cozy The King in the North is still down south, and things are starting to heat up at Dragonstone. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) gives Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) a tour of the dragonglass caves he's about to mine to make weapons in hopes of defeating the White Walkers. Though, there's another discovery he wants to show the Mother of Dragons: a secret chamber full of petroglyphs drawn by the mystical Children of the Forest. According to the wall art, which features the same symbols the Walkers like to rearrange corpses in, the Children of the Forest fought alongside Man to defeat the common enemy. Jon explains this to Dany, and she swears to join his fight -- as soon as he bends the knee. (Each time she says this sounds more sexual.) Are we allowed to ship this secret aunt-nephew pairing? Because the heat between them could melt the Wall! After getting all hot and bothered in the cave, Dany receives some bad news about her Unsullied army storming Casterly Rock -- Cersei Lannister's (Lena Headey) army wasn't there, but a fleet of enemy Greyjoy ships was. The Lannister army was instead preparing for a siege, stockpiling all the kingdom's resources inside the walls of King's Landing. Realizing that a Dothraki army is useless without food to feed them, Dany impulsively vows to fly her dragons to the Red Keep and send the enemy ablaze. Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) advises against it, so Dany asks Jon his opinion -- which is essentially to cool off and think of another plan. But the advice Dany ends up taking was that of Olenna Tyrell (R.I.P.) a few episodes ago: "Be a dragon." Dracarys Inferno The Lannister army, overseen by Jaime Lannister (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bronne (Jerome Flynn), transports a wagon caravan containing the spoils of war toward King's Landing. Not fast enough, however, as they suddenly hear the war cry of the Dothraki army closing in. The Lannister men fall into a wall formation, but are caught off guard by another winged enemy -- Drogon flying overhead with Dany, who barbecues the human barrier with the simple command, "Dracarys." The battlefield gets intense, as the wagons -- and many, many soldiers -- go up in flames while the Dothraki take care of the enemy on the ground. Bronn manages to locate Qyburn's giant, dragon-piercing crossbow and fires a shot at Drogon. The wounded dragon plummets to the ground, where Dany struggles to remove the arrow. Seeing a vulnerable Mother of Dragons, Jaime attempts to live up to his "Kingslayer" moniker and charges at her with a spear. Of course, that doesn't end well for him. Drogon protects his mother and hocks up a fire blast right in Jaime's face -- who gets knocked off his horse (by Bronn or Dickon Tarly, we assume) at the last second and safely plunges into the river. The last we see is Jaime sinking into the water with his heavy armor. We're sure he's still alive, but Cersei is not gonna be happy when she finds out her brother/lover got roasted by a dragon. Next week is gonna be lit!!!! [Image via HBO.].....»»

People Are LIVID Over The All-Female Lord Of The Flies Remake — Find Out Why!

Female-centric remakes are the newest Hollywood trend — and why shouldn't they be? Audiences are craving female-driven stories and nostalgia these days, so combining the two seems like a guaranteed slam dunk. But not every male-driven classic works with the opposite gender… specifically, when the entire premise of a story revolves around boys being idiots because [...] Female-centric remakes are the newest Hollywood trend -- and why shouldn't they be? Audiences are craving female-driven stories and nostalgia these days, so combining the two seems like a guaranteed slam dunk. But not every male-driven classic works with the opposite gender... specifically, when the entire premise of a story revolves around boys being idiots because they're boys. That's what people are frantically trying to point out after Warner Bros. announced plans to remake Lord of the Flies -- but with young girls stranded on the island instead of boys! Related: Patty Jenkins Responds To James Cameron's Wonder Woman Slam! Those who read William Golding's 1954 novel (or even Sparknoted it) say the story wouldn't make sense with all girls because it was meant to show the pitfalls of toxic masculinity. Many critics mused that instead of turning into barbaric animals, a group of stranded girls would either peacefully work together or just leave each other the fuck alone. Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that the remake will be written and directed by two men, Scott McGehee and David Siegel -- which is hardly a sign we're in for the feminist coming-of-age film of the decade. What do you think, Perezious Bookworms? Can Lord of the Flies be successfully remade with a group of girls? See what people are saying and comment (below)! An all women remake of Lord of the Flies makes no sense because... the plot of that book wouldn't happen with all women. — roxane gay (@rgay) August 31, 2017 imagine having such little interest in seeking out original stories about girlhood by women that you remake LORD OF THE FLIES with girls — JamesHurleyVEVO (@soalexgoes) August 30, 2017 An all female Lord of the Flies? Sigh. There are plenty of good original women's stories to tell. Why do we have to remake classic lit? — Proud Grandstander (@JYates_doula) August 31, 2017 like imagine missing the point of a classic book when u could've sought original stories about girlhood written by women — froy (@froynextdoor) August 31, 2017 "all-female Lord of the Flies remake" SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE MISSED THE FUUUUUCKIN POINT OF LORD OF THE FLIES — Gavia Baker-Whitelaw (@Hello_Tailor) August 30, 2017 I am all for diversity in Hollywood but.....all female Lord of the Flies is a no from me pic.twitter.com/PCrZa5pvFb — Age N. (@_BetterWithAge) August 31, 2017 The female-led Lord of the Flies wouldn't ever happen because women would just branch off into their own respective groups peacefully — rachel leishman (@RachelLeishman) August 30, 2017 All female Lord of the Flies? I thought they made that already and it was called Mean Girls. #topical pic.twitter.com/7dfaeui8EO — Bit (Neat!)

It's a lesson straight out of a Game of Thrones episode -- quite possibly, the new episode that was broadcast four days early by HBO Spain! Fans were up in arms on Wednesday after the video streaming service accidentally broadcast episode 6 of season 7, Death is the Enemy, for an hour before it was taken down. Of course, that short time was enough for pirates to rip the episode and leak it on file-sharing sites -- though most links were reported to be low quality. Related: Our Fave Bastard Is BACK On Game Of Thrones! The self-leak strikes an ironic blow to the network, which has been scrambling to keep the fantasy hit under wraps since a massive cyberattack broke out.
