Video: Game of Thrones has concluded its deep dive into how it's made with HBO's final instalment of the behind-the-scenes series The Game Revealed, which goes into how they brought the wight from Beyond the Wall to un-life. And for the designers, singling out a single wight was tougher than building an army.

Game of Thrones is a show that was built on fan theories and Reddit forums. Sadly, there aren't a lot of mysteries left to solve, although a new one was one added in the season seven finale: Does the undead dragon Viserion breathe fire or ice? The season finale's director was quizzed on it; even Neil deGrasse Tyson has weighed in. But HBO is giving us some major mixed signals... the latest being a freaking coffee cup.
Neil deGrasse Tyson must have binge-watched Game of Thrones, because he cannot stop talking about the series on Twitter, including weighing in on the most pertinent scientific question of our time: Do Game of Thrones' dragons make sense? Turns out, they're not nearly as far-fetched as the wights' use of chains.
Video: The newest instalment of HBO's Game of Thrones behind-the-scenes series, The Game Revealed, looks at the long-awaited Stark reunion -- well, one of them anyway (sorry Bran!) And I have to say, watching real-life best friends Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner try to keep straight faces during their scenes is just too much to handle.
HBO have spent the last few seasons of Game of Thrones trying to keep as much as possible about the series from leaking out, but the series' ability to keep its cast's lips sealed hasn't stopped us learning a lot about seasons six and seven before they aired. That could change for the final season -- at least for the ending of the show.
Game of Thrones, if you'll forgive the pun, changed the game on fan theories. The HBO show has inspired countless Reddit threads, discussion forums, and crazy homemade conspiracy walls decked out with pictures, names, and string in hopes of tying all the pieces together. Some of those theories have actually come true, most notably "R+L=J." However, others seem like they're too dumb to exist -- and yet here we are.
Video: Game of Thrones hit us with a (relatively expected) whammy in the season finale, finally revealing the full truth about Jon Snow's parentage. However, the show has actually been building up to it since the very beginning of the series, and this video has collected every single hint, tease and twist along the way to the season seven finale in one of the best fan tributes I've ever seen.
Not all of Game of Thrones season seven's secrets and surprises have been revealed. Now that the latest season has finally aired, the visual effects studios responsible for bringing the fantasy world to life have started releasing their behind-the-scenes reels of the show's real magic: its movie-calibre special effects, especially when it comes to Westeros' tiniest Faceless Man.
The season finale of Game of Thrones had plenty of twists and turns, even if many of them were expected. One of the biggest took place in Winterfell at the culmination of the Arya vs. Sansa conflict -- inarguably the season's worst storyline -- but seemingly came out of nowhere. As it turns out, the show cut a key scene that would have explained it all, but also made the whole mess worse.
The stage has been set for Game of Thrones' final season, as a terribly divided Westeros faces an invasion by the White Walkers... but this won't be the first time they have tried to eradicate humanity. Here's everything we know about the first war between humans and the Walkers -- and what it can tell us about the war to come next season.
