New Zealand batsman bemused after narrowly avoiding ending up on television impersonating Game of Thrones character Grey Worm
New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor headed across the narrow sea to escape the winds of winter and take up a county deal with Sussex. He could have been forgiven thinking winter was still coming for England when greeted with training sessions in the snow. The Black Caps run-machine, who made 290 against Australia at the WACA last summer, tried to shake off the chill by joining UK broadcaster Sky Sports and the likes of Shane Warne as a studio pundit for coverage of the Indian Premier League. But instead of ending up in a studio chatting cricket, Taylor nearly found himself an unwitting guest of honour on the pay TV network's biggest football show, mistaken for a star of the planet's biggest TV drama. "(Sky) send a driver to pick you up; it's quite cool," Taylor told blackcaps.co.nz. "So the driver picks me up and drops me off at the gate. He said a runner was going to come pick me up, so a runner comes and picks me up and introduces himself. He said, 'You come with me,' so I followed him. "He takes me into this little room; I didn't know anyone in there … then this guy comes over to me and hands me a mic. "Now for the cricket I was told to bring dress shoes and pants and they will supply a shirt. Well this guy comes over and starts putting a clip up my shirt, and I'm like, 'Don't I have to get dressed up?' "The guy goes 'What's your name?', I say, 'Ross Taylor' and then he turned around to his producer and said, 'Told you, that's not him'. "And he goes, 'Oh mate, I'm so sorry. We've got the wrong person. We thought you were Grey Worm from Game of Thrones'." Soccer AM had been expecting the hit drama's Commander of the Unsullied, who is familiar with dragons, to talk about a looming battle for the Red Devils. "I was two minutes away from going on Soccer AM, the UK's massive Saturday morning soccer show ahead of the FA Cup semi-final as Grey Worm from Game of Thrones, who's a huge Manchester United fan apparently," Taylor said. "It would've been like that guy who came to the BBC for a job interview that ended up talking live on TV. So that was pretty funny I thought." Taylor refers to Guy Coma, an unemployed computer technician from the Congo who inadvertently was put live to air on the BBC's main news channel in place of technology expert Guy Kewney in 2006. Taylor escaped his dance with dragons and after a slow start is now flourishing in the seven kingdoms of Sussex where he has been leading from the front. As they say in George RR Martin's world, valar morghulis, so all bowlers must suffer as Taylor wields his willow. The 32-year-old He has scored seven fifties in his past nine matches across all formats, passing the milestone in first-class, 50-over and T20 cricket, with an unbeaten 93 in a T20 match against Bristol the highlight. Quick Single: NZ set Chappell-Hadlee showdown dates "The first two or three weeks were an interesting experience: I dropped my first catch probably within the first hour and my finger hasn't been the same since," Taylor said. "The club and the team have been very good, very welcoming, and the family is loving it. "I can't say I've ever trained in snow before. That was interesting. I had to go up for training in the snow, and then as I was driving home there was snow as well. Not something I normally associate with cricket. "That's all part of it I guess. You know coming over here that you'll experience some different things," he chuckles.

S06E10 - season Finale. Decent.

Spoiler:
As Loras confesses guilt and converts, Cersei thumbs her nose at the trial, then lights up the stash of wildfire below, blowing up the High Sparrow, his followers and the gentry of Kings Landing, including Loras, Margaery and Mace. Qyburn offs Maester Pycelle via stabby little birds. Tommen can't take the development and leaps to his death.

Daeny, with the newly anointed "Hand of the Queen" Tyrion at her side sails for Westeros, with the Unsullied and her dragons overhead. She made an unhappy Darrio stay and look after Meereen.

Sam ends up in the Grand Library of the Maesters' Citadel.

After Davos demands Melisandre's death for burning young Shireen, Jon Snow banishes her to the south.

Jon is crowned King of the North by the now combined Houses.

Sansa politely rejects Baelish's offer of marriage.

In Dorne, Lady Olenna and Ellaria Sand enter an alliance to seek vengeance on Cersei and the Lannisters.

A healed Arya infiltrates Riverrun and extracts some revenge for the Red Wedding massacre by serving up his sons in a pie then cutting Walder Fray's throat.

Brann wargs back to the moment Ned Stark ascended the tower to a dying sister Lyanna Stark, who hands him baby Jon. So Jon is not Ned's bastard afterall, but of Stark blood, perhaps fathered by Rhaegar Targaryen. Hmm, that makes for a powerful bloodline in the new King of the North.

So Winter has come and it now is a battle between Queen Cersei's Lannisters, Jon Snow's North, and Daeny's alliance. Of course, don't forget about the White Walkers.

For Aussie viewers, GOT is being replaced by The Kettering Incident. Guess i'll have to have a look seeing it was shot in & around the town of Kettering just south of Hobart. The promo's look pretty interesting at least.

Tyrion, Dorne, Queen of Thorns and probably the Starks.

From the Interweb...

Looks like a couple of shorter seasons to finish this epic tale

"Word on the web has long suggested that the Game Of Thrones showrunners are planning to wrap the story up in thirteen episodes using shortened seventh and eighth seasons.

These rumours have now been confirmed by the showrunners themselves. David Benioff has told Deadline that "It’s two more seasons we’re talking about. From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that’s what we’ll end up with. Call it 73 for now."

When you add to this The Door director Jack Bender's previous statement that "They’re only doing seven [episodes]" in season 7, we can surmise that the current plan is for two shorter seasons - season 7 consisting of 7 episodes, and season 8 consisting of 6 episodes."


------------------------------

Awww damn.

Also:

Spoiler:
Jon's real name

"We all, by this point, agree that R + L = J. But what does the J stand for?

Redditor Claire Williams, a 33-year-old Dallas-Fort Worth web designer and Game of Thrones fan who posts under the name sparkledavisjr, has a theory based on a close lip-reading of the inaudible exchange between Lyanna and Ned Stark.

First of all, we know that his name would be Jon Sand based on his birthplace and bastard status. Second of all, Williams has a theory that Lyanna named her baby before expiring.

She theorizes that Lyanna whispers to Ned, “His name is Jaehaerys.” Still, Williams admits that her reading might not be fully accurate. She says she watched the scene at least 50 times, pausing it to whisper the words to check if her mouth moved as Lyanna’s did.
...
“Jaehaerys I was the 4th Targaryen king to sit the Iron Throne. He was known as ‘the Wise,’ ‘The Conciliator,’ and ‘the Old King,’ Williams writes. “His long rule was prosperous and he was aided by his sister-wife Alysanne, who convinced Jaehaerys to expand the Night's Watch and granted them the land now known as the New Gift."


----------------------------

So Jon Snow = Jaehaerys Targaryen??  Sounds fair.  columbo

So 7 shows to sort out the South of the Wall crap and another 5 to fight the White Walkers and one for the J+D wedding?
