A Major Game of Thrones Death May Play Out Differently in the Books – In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the producers revealed that when George R.R. Martin gave them a rough plan for how the books will end, he included "three holy sh-- moments." [...] while Benioff and Weiss have confirmed that Shireen is doomed in the books, that doesn't mean it will play out exactly as we saw on the series. [...] since Shireen is afflicted with grayscale, a disease that turned much of her skin into stone, there's a chance that waking "dragons from stone" refers to resurrecting Jon through Shireen's death. [...] while Show Melisandre resurrects Jon to appease Davos (Liam Cunningham), Book Melisandre may do so completely by accident. Because if Melisandre decides to burn Shireen to help Stannis -- whom, in the books, she still believes is Azor Ahai -- it's possible that the sacrifice will affect the real Azor Ahai, Jon Snow, and bring him back from the dead.
Can Anyone Beat Jordan Rodgers on The Bachelorette? – Jordan was the first contender to get his limo introduction, which as we learned from UnREAL is the "wifey" position -- on The Bachelorette I suppose it's "hubby" -- and marks that contender as the one to beat (last season on The Bachelor eventual winner Lauren Bushnell was the first one out of the limo). JoJo Fletcher gave Jordan the first impression rose, which singles out someone who intrigued the Bachelor or Bachelorette on night one, and he was the first person she willingly kissed (a goofball named Will tricked her into kissing him, but she happily kissed Jordan). "Pro quarterback" doesn't appear on the list of most-swiped-right professions on Tinder, but that's only because the sample size is so small. [...] he went to Canada and was on the practice squad for the BC Lions. Aaron, who plays for the Green Bay Packers, is a two-time MVP and a Super Bowl champion. Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn are legitimately and not desperately famous (well, Olivia Munn is a little desperate, but she went from cable video game show host to superhero movie actor, so it worked for her).
