Game of Thrones Star Sophie Turner Reveals What She Stole from the Set

It's practically a rite of passage for actors to steal their favorite props and costumes from their big-budget productions. David Tennant kept the Tenth Doctor's sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who, while Robert Downey Jr. somehow made off with a 30-foot "A" from The Avengers and Emma Watson laid claim to pretty much half of the props department from each Harry Potter movie.

And now, ​Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is adding her name to the list of Hollywood thieves by revealing at a New York Comic Con panel that not only did she walk off the set of the final season with her favorite corset, but that her costars Kit Harington and Maisie Williams went ahead and claimed ownership of their respective swords.

Turner's decision to rat out her costars is just like something Sansa Stark would do in order to divert attention to others, even when she's confessing to her own crimes. To be fair, ​Harington has already discussed how he has wanted to keep his sword, Longclaw, since day one. "There's only one that I've ever wanted: I want my sword," he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"The first season they were like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah of course,' and as the seasons went on and the show became more and more popular and ​that sword's value went up, they became slowly quieter about it," Harington added. He has yet to confirm if he took matters into his own hands, but it seems as if Turner has now brought his burglary to light.

For her part, ​Williams was much more secretive about the whole affair. While she has kept mum on the whereabouts of her sword, Needle, she'd kept attention off her by previously unveiling to the BBC that she had stolen Arya's brown leather jacket.

"I can imagine it being something that I'm like, 'Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore," she joked in the interview. "And my grandkids being like, 'Please stop.'"

It's unlikely that Williams or Harington will be bringing their blades to any red carpet events anytime soon, so the last time you'll prbably be able to see Longclaw and Needle (and Sansa's corset for that matter) will be in the ​eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, set to air sometime in the first half of 2019.

George RR Martin Just Gave Us a Peek at Game of Thrones’s Ice Spiders

When you think of threats in Game of Thrones, the first thing that comes to mind might be Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons or maybe even the Night King. But does anyone remember the ice spiders in Westeros lore, which Old Nan told Bran about several years back?

In the series' first season, Old Nan told Bran bedtime stories about The Long Night, a time in the Age of Heroes when darkness fell upon the known world for a whole century. During this time, famine and horrifying dangers appeared, including the White Walkers and, yes, a scary species of ice spiders.

So it seems fitting that the 2020 Game of Thrones calendar George RR Martin recently shared on Twitter shows off these ice spiders on the front cover, as the upcoming prequel series is rumored to be called The Long Night (and it was Martin himself who let that tiny detail slip).

It's an interesting illustration, and could be an early glimpse about a terrifying new creature we might soon get to see in Westeros—if not in the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones, then possibly in the prequel.

Game of Thrones Season 8 is scheduled to premiere in April 2019.

New Avengers: Endgame Theory Argues None of the Superheroes Died in Infinity War

In most movies, it's the characters' journeys that really matter—not necessarily how they end. However, when it comes to Avengers: Infinity War, what fans undoubtedly remember is Thanos's snap, which closed the movie and presumably killed off half of the universe, leaving the whole of Marvel's fan base in utter shock.

But what if Thanos's snap, now officially known as "The Decimation," did not actually kill any our favorite superheroes? What if, instead, it sent them all to an alternate universe? That's what one interesting new theory proposes, Esquire reports. Here's what Redditor joethehamface wrote:

"We have all been making fun of Thanos by saying that death wasn't necessary with the near infinite power of the gauntlet. What if it simply split the reality in two, taking half of everyone into each version ... The two parallel realities could be joined by a sort of bridge in the quantum realm. Since Scott was in the quantum realm at the time of the split, he was unaffected by the snap and not bound to either reality—leaving him free to travel from one to the other over this bridge. Maybe this leaves him free to travel through to the parallel dimensions created by Thanos, splitting the time stream. He would be the only way for them to communicate with [each] other. Maybe he exists in both realities and gains knowledge from both due to some strange form of quantum entanglement."

What's the likelihood of this being the case? Well, pretty low. But Paul Rudd as Scott Lang appearing in the highly-anticipated Avengers: EndGame trailer after we all thought he was one of the many casualties does validate the theory a bit. Unfortunately, we'll just have to wait and see.

Avengers: EndGame will arrive in theaters on April 26, 2019.
