*Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers ahead!*

HBO


The final episode of Game of Thrones revealed many endings people were not expecting.

After years of wondering who would finally end up sitting on the Iron Throne, perhaps the biggest twist fans had to deal with was the news that Bran Stark, the three-eyed raven who previously turned down any Lord duties in favor of warging out in the garden by himself, would be the King of the newly formed SIX Kingdoms.

Bran's ascendance to the throne took everyone by surprise...well, ALMOST everyone.

It turns out Gwendoline Christie (who played Brienne of Tarth) has seen this ending coming for a very long time.

Extra released a video showing her laying out the idea of Bran as king in an interview years ago:

Christie couldn't help but brag a bit on Twitter.

Fans wondered whether the actress had some sort of prophetic power...


Many disappointed fans have been on the side of Nikolaj, who said Gwendoline's ending "made no sense."



Of course, there must have been egg on his face when Christie was finally proven right.


Right now is a pretty good time to be Gwendoline Christie.



There were some fans who thought the ending was exactly what it should have been!


Others couldn't help but poke a few holes in how things turned out...



A huge congratulations to Gwendoline Christie: if there was an Iron Throne in the real world, you'd be the three-eyed raven who gets to sit on it in the end.


If Christie appears in any other TV shows in the near future, fans better pay attention to her predictions.

You may have heard of the phrase "retail therapy" before, which is the act of buying things for personal enjoyment.

Well, there's some truth to that.

The University of Michigan actually studied the affects of shopping on our sadness levels. Purchasing something you enjoy can actually decrease sadness 40 times better than not purchasing something.

There are tons of other benefits like dopamine increases, anxiety reduction and improved mood. We wanted to know what people are buying to give them that rush of happy hormones and increase their joy.

When we think of a "hero" we might think of someone in a cape who's saving civilians from terror. Or maybe we think of the essential workers we've called heroes throughout the pandemic.

Heroism is simply defined as "great bravery," according to Oxford Languages.

If being a hero is about showing courage, bravery and strength, heroic feats happen all around us every day with ordinary people.

They say good things come in small packages—as a lifelong member of the "Never hit 5 feet tall" club it's a phrase I've had thrown at me often.

It's right up there with "small but mighty" and "people mcnugget."

It's popular because there's a fair bit of truth to it, though.

When it comes to some things, smaller is just flat out better.

Everyone has their "type" when it comes to sexual attraction.

It could be a woman's scent, a man's fashion sense, or a confident attitude that really gets a heart fluttering at 100 m.p.h.
However, what someone thinks is "hot" or "sexy" may be a total turn-off for others.
