finale

We're all counting down the minutes until the finale of hit reality show Love Island, but what if there was a special venue hosting a live screening?

The Cupid-style series has gripped the entire nation for the last four weeks, and it's popularity is only growing according to social media and viewer statistics.

Widely regarded as a cultural phenomenon, the world and it's mother has been discussing the shameful antics of Curtis and Michael in their betrayal of Amy and Amber, the hilarious Longford lass Maura and other highlights from the Lucie/Joe/Tommy love triangle and the Ellie Belly Fury family to Yewande versus Arabella and Anton's lack of game.

Popular Dublin sports bar The Living Room has just announced that it will host a live screening of the finale on Monday, July 29 from 9pm until 11:30pm and seeing as admission is free, the place is bound to be jam-packed.

Seeing as Love Island is now as popular as any world class sporting tournament, it's unsurprising that such a large venue has taken to airing the eagerly-awaited finale.

Irish viewers were gutted to see Irish scientist Yewande Biala dumped from the island weeks ago, but Maura Higgins has been flying the tricolour high and proud.

Audiences have even declared that the ring girl has been carrying the entire season on her back, and we have to agree. The gal speaks the God honest truth at all times.

Her new declaration of lust for Curtis has set chins wagging, so it should be interesting to see which lad she eventually ends up with.

Time will tell, but The Living Room looks like the perfect location to sit back, have a summer cocktail or a pint and soak in the last episode of a pure gas series.

*SPOILER ALERT*

Don't 'Dracarys' our asses if you read anything you shouldn't have…That's our final warning.

Now, without further ado, we are in mourning. Mainly because of how absurd that Game of Thrones finale was, but we had to sob when Drogon tried to wake his dragon mama and flew away with her body.

Honestly, that broke us. What also broke us was how weak the storyline ended, and how pointless Jon Snow's parentage was and Bran's warg skills were. We pretty much just sat there shouting, "WHY?!" every five seconds.

We searched the net to find the most hilarious reactions to the HBO classic show's ending, and there are some absolute crackers, sit back and enjoy while wearing black and signing the petition to have it remade…

1. Arya's faceless men skills will really come in handy when she starts her long career as a landlord…

2. Stick it to the man…ager:

3. Sansa was like…I've been through hell and back with three dodgy husbands but yep, give it to Bran for NO REASON:

4. 'Bran the Broken' needs to be dismissed as a phrase, total ableism.

5. Brienne of Tarth, First Female Knight and…Instagram influencer?

6. Bran is that kid from every group project who did absolutely sweet f*ck all:

7. Well, the Iron Throne was melted but we can definitely find a decent replacement?

8. Robin Arryn did NOT come to play:

9. We should have let the Night King get on with his business:

10. The true romance was Tormund and Jon, having a love-fest north of the wall with Ghost as their bridesmaid:

11. Let's be clear…Drogon was the GOAT:

12. GHOST deserved the throne, those two good boys were the best in the realm:

13. Um, why exactly was Jon Snow resurrected by Melisandre again?

14. We ain't over this, sorry not sorry. It's like Harry Potter's name in the Goblet of Fire all over again:

15. Drogon knew how to play the damn game:

16. HODOR and MEERA REED are the reason Bran is alive and nobody cares??!

17. That psychic kid was laughing at us for eight seasons:

18. You okay there, Tyrion?

19. Sansa was like NOPE the North is our own nation, f*ck the European Union:

20. Sansa is going to get LOOSE up North, that's for sure:

21. Lads, what did Drogon do with the body?

22. Drogon understands political issues and how absolute power corrupts even the most good of heroes:

We really don't know how to feel at this moment in time…mostly p*ssed at how the show-runners misused the character arcs and plot-lines going back nine years but at least we can laugh about it?

First the coffee cup, which brand I refuse to name, and now this? It seems Game of Thrones can't quite escape the eagle eyes of its fan-base when it comes to errors made on-screen.

During the final episode of the eighth season, viewers noticed that a water bottle joined the infamous coffee cup that was shown in front of Daenerys Targaryen at Winterfell.

During a scene in which the group are literally deciding the fate of the Six Kingdoms (the North has gone solo, courtesy of Sansa), the blunder was in full view and it's pretty gas.

Things are getting thirsty down in King's Landing, is that Samwell Tarley that left his water bottle in full view? Also, plastic bottles are a big no-no since all the climate breakdown news has hit.

Get on board with reusable bottles, HBO, for the love of God.

Poor Sam was trying to educate the group of lords and ladies about this thing called DEMOCRACY and low-and-behold, the water bottle distracted the fans instead of his (shite) speech.

The show-runners will probably have to make yet another statement, after a takeaway coffee cup was seen amid the metal goblets during a Winterfell feast. Once again, HBO has room in their big budget for Keep Cups. Just sayin'.

Many fans have criticised the final season of the show for it's ridiculously rushed pacing towards the end, and destroying the arcs of many a character.

Over one million people signed a petition which called for a remake of the final season, and this certainly won't help David Benioff and DB Weiss win the GOT fanatics over.

Kit Harington has some intriguing information, to say the least. He KNOWS THINGS we don't; namely the Game of Thrones ending.

One of the biggest kept secrets in the entire universe, Kit has been carrying around some absolute bombs for months, and his poor wife has now been victim to the biggest one of all.

Jon Snow and Ygritte were (ARE) Game of Thrones' most tragic couple, and the real-life husband and wife are both highly invested in the show.

They're one of the cutest celebrity couples in the business, especially because their love onscreen was SO DAMN PALPABLE.

Harington has thanked the show in the past for bringing them together, speaking of how he fell in love with Rose after filming with her in Iceland.

During a radio appearance earlier in the week, Kit revealed the tension which still resides between him and his wife over the show…

Rose is a major Game of Thrones fan, considering her past role in the show. Naturally, she was curious about how the show ends, most likely since her husband is now smooching the Mother of Dragons. 

She asked her hubby how she show ends, and he (stupidly) indulged her questions. BIG mistake, Kit.

According to Entertainment Weekly, he said, “I told my wife last year how it ended, and she wouldn’t talk to me for about three days…and she’d asked!”

We're not quite sure if her reaction means that the ending is happy or tragic, but we're assuming tragic. George R. R. Martin and the showrunners are cruel men, they kill off everyone we love.

Kit Harington previously said he was satisfied with the iconic HBO series' ending, but refused to say if he was happy or sad about it. So it's 100 percent sad.

We're fairly sure Jon Snow isn't the only person to let slip TV's mother of all secrets. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, also told her nearest and dearest the ending too.

Would you tell your significant other, or parents, the finale spoilers? We probably would, TBH.

Death is pretty much a given when it comes to Game of Thrones; whether it's the Red Wedding (RIP my heart), the Battle of the Bastards or just any kind of royal gathering, you're guaranteed to see bloodshed.

That being said, the upcoming and much-anticipated final season of the show will be pivotal when it comes to character killing, because the last one standing LITERALLY wins Game of Thrones.

*deep breathes* We're going to need a stiff drink to handle the tension and grieving which series eight will inevitably bring…

A new study published in the Injury Epidemiology journal tries to decipher the likelihood of characters meeting their bloody end, and has recorded data on 330 Game of Thrones personalities.

The data takes circumstances such as religious beliefs and social status into account based off each episode of the HBO smash hit show.

'What influences the chances of a character death?' we hear you ask. Author of the study, Reidar Lysad (he sounds like a character himself…) has said;

"The risk of death is high among characters in Game of Thrones.

By the end of the seventh season, more than half of the characters had died – 186 out of the 330 characters we included in this study – with violent deaths being the most common by far.!

Apparently, switching allegiance makes you a lot more likely to survive in the show, but sticking to your morals and principles increases the chance that you'll reach the end.

Probably because it's always the sneaky snakes who can con their way into staying alive… 

Women and 'highborns' are also more likely to continue with their lives, rather than poor, male characters.

Which means… Queen of Westeros and General Nutjob Cersei Lannister might end up being the last gal standing. *gasps* but her prophecy??

Jaime Lannister, Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister all have higher chances of survival because of their tendency to switch sides, and their high status.

One in seven characters actually died within the first hour of their introduction, and the fastest end to a character was just 11 SECONDS. Good God, no one is safe.

The regular character is alive for roughly 29 hours, and only two deaths were from natural causes.

In Westeros, anything goes. They could all die, TBF, and the throne will be left icy and barren.

The outcome of the show is always unpredictable, and aims to be different than the expected.

As the saying goes; “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die”.

For Pretty Little Liars fans, the end is near and it's safe to say we're all grasping at straws to find out the identity of A.D.

Every text, conversation and game in the show raises speculation, and basically, we have a new bad guy every week.

But now, Brendan Robinson, who plays Lucas on the show, has revealed some hints about the finale and the true identity of A.D.

"I won't tell you what specific clues there are but there are hints that have been dropped for a long time," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"When I found out who it was, I hadn't read the script yet, because it was a couple weeks in advance and it didn't make total sense to me at first.

"And then, when I saw the script and I read it and we all sat down – and the people that are involved in those scenes do a really, really phenomenal job – all the questions are answered and it made sense."

Can you read between the lines, because we can't. However, Brendan did note that the finale will be full of flashbacks to explain what happened.

"There are a lot of flashbacks in the finale. You will see those things, and several of the things are not spoken but you actually see it [as a way to remember]."

And when finally asked if he is indeed the villain, Brendan acted very coy.

"It's possible," he said. "I'll say this, if he is involved, I think it's for a good reason. He is trying to protect Hannah for a good reason."
