'Game of Thrones': The Night King Comes for the Comic-Con Panel

"I believe you have a role to play... as does another", Melisandre says.

We also see that Queen Cersei has decided Daenerys is the most risky threat to her power, and is readying her remaining Lannister armies against the Mother of Dragons. The show is based off author George R.R. Martin's novel series A Song of Ice and Fire, and fans have long speculated that the meaning of that name involves Jon Snow (representing the ice) and Daenerys Targaryen (representing the fire, what with her three dragons and all). She finds it awkward but, doesn't deny there's some "potential secret enjoyment" in it.

- Does Brienne secretly like Tormund's advances? She said that there's still a pervasive sexism in the way Westeros politics unfold, and that both Jon and Sansa need to start recognizing the strengths that exist within one another.

As a special treat the panel was moderated by none other than Kristian Nairn, the actor who played Hodor till the finale of season 6 when he was killed off.

Lyft Is Pumping Up Its Self-Driving Car Development Program
It plans to outfit these vehicles with cameras and sensors to collect data that will ultimately train its self-driving cars. But Lyft says it is not just building ride-hailing apps, high-def maps, or even self-driving systems for autonomous cars .

This year's Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel was pretty unique. There must be "mutual respect", she said - and as Cunningham rightly pointed out, that might not be something that's in Tormund's wheelhouse, much to the chagrin of Brienne-Tormund shippers everywhere. When the characters met, Brienne realised she didn't have to be masculine to be taken seriously, she could "be propelled by her own sense of what is right". Now living back in the North with her cousin (who she thinks is her half brother) Jon Snow, Sansa is focused on staying alive and helping him lead. She added, "She doesn't really see the world through rose-colored glasses anymore".

"With Game of Thrones, we're going into season seven now, and there's a similar feeling". "She's woke now", she told the audience, "she's real woke".

As for Sophie's Sansa, she's apparently #teamnolove, admitting her character's once idealistic views about romance and marriage have evolved as she's been manipulated by various forces over the show's run. "Man or woman, family or not, she trusts no one".
