Now that season two of Game of Thrones is over, what better way to help momentarily forget that it won’t be back on again for another year by remembering the best quotes of the season?

It was not easy selecting these quotes, because there are just so many great ones. I tried to do a balance of funny one-liners and ones that made you think, but please feel free to share your own favourites in the comments.

Naturally, there are going to be a lot from Tyrion. He pretty much delivers something memorable every time he’s on screen, but here are a couple I particularly enjoyed.

“You love your children. It’s your one redeeming quality. That and your cheekbones.” – Tyrion

The constant banter between Tyrion and Cersei this whole season has just been excellent to watch, whether it’s Tyrion delivering the insult or Cersei. The actors have done really well to make every scene between them engaging.

“I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you’re safe and happy and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.” – Tyrion

Not only does Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) have great comedic timing, but he also knows how to make threats sound as menacing as possible.

TV watchers, remember. A Lannister always pays his debts.

“Why are all the gods such viscous c*nts? Where’s the God of tits and wine?” – Tyrion

Funny as usual, but that’s expected of Tyrion. I would have liked to include Tyrion slapping Joffrey again, but unfortunately I can’t really convey the deep satisfaction or impact of the slap with just quotation marks.

 


 

Another Lannister, Tyrion’s older sister Cersei, also had some memorable lines of her own.

“If the city falls, these fine women should be in for a bit of a rape.” – Cersei

So I had to put this one in. Drunk Cersei was hilarious during that whole episode, but the way Lena Heady (Cersei) delivered it, as if you could only get a little bit raped, changed the tone from horror to funny (only in her utter disregard for the welfare of her court.)

“Tears aren’t a woman’s only weapon. The best one is between your legs.” – Cersei

Cersei was just dropping truth bombs the entire episode, but this one really stuck out, as it’s not only horrible but true, especially in the world of Game of Thrones where it truly sucks to be a woman.

 


 

Can we talk about Bronn? Because Bronn is just awesome. He doesn’t take any crap and tells it to you straight, never mind whether you want to hear it or not.

“There’s no cure for being a c*nt”– Bronn

The bluntness of the statement and the nonplus way he says it make for comedy gold. I’m sure there were many people who were fist pumping to the truth of Bronn’s words for the most hated character in the series, Joffrey.

 


 

Still in King’s Landing, one of the most cunning men is Varys, who often has wisdom to share.

“A very small man can cast a very large shadow.” – Varys

This is a significant line that echoes throughout the season and foreshadows Tyrion’s power and impact on King’s Landing.

 


 

Moving beyond the Wall, newcomer Ygritte shone in all her scenes.

“You know nothing, Jon Snow.” – Ygritte

I know there are many more amazing lines that she delivered, ones that made you laugh out loud at her vulgarity and Jon’s discomfort, but as a book fan, this line is so important to Ygritte as a character, that I was on the edge of my seat waiting to hear it.

 


 

And now for another badass, Arya Stark. I loved her in season one as the girl who didn’t want to be a lady, and now I love her as the ghost of Harrenhal, deciding the death of her enemies.

“Anyone can be killed” – Arya

Don’t we know it. RIP Ned Stark.

I loved this line for the hidden threat behind her words, as well as its truth.

 


 

Turning to Arya’s new found friend, we have the secret ninja assassin Jaqen H’ghar.

“A man needs a name” – Jaqen H’ghar

Aaah, is there anything cooler than an attractive man talking in third person? Sure, it’s a bit strange, but it definitely makes his character memorable and intriguing.

 


 

Finally, there is Danerys, a fan favourite from season one.

“I am Danerys Stormborn and I will take what is mine, with fire and blood.” – Danerys

Although her storyline kind of went nowhere this season and she was acting a bit spoiled at times, this quote, and her conviction when saying it, reminded me that Danerys is not someone to cross and that she is a strong female character.

 


 

Honourable mentions:

“Any man dies with a clean sword, I’ll rape his f***ing corpse.” – The Hound (Sandor Clegane)

“But this is Stannis Baratheon. I’d have a better chance seducing his horse.” – Cersei

“And now I’ve struck a king. Did my hand fall from my wrist?” – Tyrion

A new Fifty Shades Darker trailer was released on Wednesday and ups the sexy for the sequel.

Ana and Christian are getting back together in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, but the former has a couple of new rules: No secrets, way less BDSM. Christian agrees, but new problems come to light: Is someone from the millionaire’s past haunting him?

Dakota Johnson continues to bring a fun vibe to Ana Steele, playing the awkward lines with self awareness better than Kristen Stewart ever did as Bella in Twilight. “Have dinner with me,” Christian begs. “Okay fine, I will have dinner with you, because I’m… hungry,” Ana replies. The line could come off corny if executed poorly, but Dakota has a strong hold on playing this character for fun.

Tickets for Fifty Shades Darker are now on sale. Check out a new poster for the movie below:

The Fifty Shades Darker synopsis reads, “When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.”

The movie hits theaters this Valentine’s Day. It stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Victor Rasuk, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger and Marcia Gay Harden, and is directed by James Foley.

It’s looking like Nick Robinson will go from battling dinosaurs to battling the process of coming out.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is an excellent coming of age/coming out LGBT YA novel which we’ve raved about here on Hypable before. Nick Robinson is definitely an actor we can picture in the role, so we can’t wait to see him play the adorable character.

The film is being produced by Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment, who’s responsible for The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers.

What do think of Nick Robinson as Simon?

If you haven’t read it yet, we highly recommend that you do. The book was first published last year:

Netflix has unveiled a new Series of Unfortunate Events trailer, showing off Neil Patrick Harris’ excellent portrayal of the evil, wacky, will-stop-at-nothing-to-get-that-money Count Olaf.

Neil Patrick Harris’ ability to convincingly become any person — whether male or female, young or old, ugly or beautiful — becomes abundantly clear in the latest ASOUE trailer. While some of us may’ve been a little skeptical of his casting initially, it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role after seeing previews like this.

The trailer begins with narrator Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) warning that the new Netflix show is no delightful watch. Then the focus turns to Olaf and his mission to steal the children’s fortune, left to them by their parents after their untimely deaths:

A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres all eight episodes of its first season on January 13, 2017.

“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.”

Another trailer was released two weeks ago — you can watch it here.

Is ‘Unfortunate Events’ looking as good as you hoped?

Harris previously confirmed that each book will be adapted into two episodes of the show. The first season of ASOUE covers the first four books, so presumably season 2 will roughly cover another four books. There are a total of 13 books in Lemony Snicket’s series.
