Holy mother of dragons! Kiwis react to Game of Thrones

In Season 7, episode 4, "The Spoils of War," Baelish barraged Bran with niceties, suggesting he understood the hell he'd been through since leaving Winterfell as a boy, and was on his side, blah blah blah bogusness.

Boyd Rankin, an armorer for the show who played Mikken the blacksmith in Season One of GoT, will be on hand, as will two of the Stark children's direwolves. Given the time frame the series is now working with, fans should expect a battle with the White Walkers soon. "It was definitely hard to get it right", he said.

Bran obviously had no use for it, so it wouldn't have been a tough decision to pass it on to someone more mobile.

He was speaking at a promotional appearance at the Michigan Avenue AT&T store Friday night, an event that looked like a segment of Comic-Con teleported to the Magnificent Mile.

"That said, we've been waiting for this to happen since the beginning", he continued.

Stocks plunge over North Korea tensions
On the economic front, data is expected to show that US consumer prices likely rose in July after being unchanged the prior month. Ten-year USA yields dropped 4.3 basis points to 2.24 percent and German equivalents fell 3 bps to 0.43 percent, a six-week low.

Robert Aguayo Might Just Be Bad at Kicking Footballs
It's a pretty stunning fall from grace for Aguayo, who was arguably the best kicker in college football history. Immediately after they were ridiculed by everyone because no team ever takes a kicker that high in the draft.

Beyond the fiery words, USA quietly pursues diplomacy with North Korea
The Associated Press reports that Yun is the only USA diplomat in contact with representatives of the North Korean government. On Friday, he tweeted: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

Game of Thrones has gone through many hated villains, but Joffrey Baratheon was one of the first. "I had a meeting with [series creators] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], and they wanted him to be quite monotone and agenda-less, but at the same time have a slight flair, so it wasn't just like listening to a robot talk". He had only done a one-day TV commercial shoot before "GoT". They're the best of friends.

Bran will never walk again. And thanks to season seven promo teasers, we know that Arya is donning northern clothes that suit noble members of Stark house. "We don't know if I make it to the season, do we?"

Fans of Game of Thrones are not-so-subtly freaking out after spotting a "ghost" in a scene from the latest ep. "And this puts him in, like, the NSA's position".

So when Bran gives Littlefinger's Valyrian steel dagger to Arya (Maisie Williams), he gives it to her for a reason. Let's be honest, no: Tyrion is pretty good at being a stooge for more manipulative people's crimes (here's looking at you, Olenna!) In the books this is also made far clearer by Jaime, who says there are huge flaws in Littlefinger's accusations. "There's no way he can outfox Bran on that". Littlefinger is the only man to claim ownership of the dagger, but as he told Bran, where the dagger came from and who it really belongs to is the question that essentially launched the War of the Five Kings. "Potentially, yeah, I think so", said Wright, "although in many ways I think Bran has transcended all those human fears and worries".
