A GAME OF THRONES Touring Exhibition is Coming This Fall

A GAME OF THRONES Touring Exhibition is Coming This Fall

In just over a week, the penultimate season of Game of Thrones will hit HBO. Then we’ll be immersed in George R.R. Martin‘s fantasy world for seven weeks before the countdown to the final season begins. It may be a long wait before winter comes again, but in the interim, perhaps HBO can bring Westeros to us. HBO has announced that a Game of Thrones exhibition is going on a worldwide tour, and it’s starting this fall!

HBO and GES are teaming up for an interactive Game of Thrones experience that will utilize authentic props, costumes, and set decorations from the show. And it won’t be small. The early word is that the entire GoT experience will span 10,000 square feet, and it will recreate several locations from across the seven kingdoms of Westeros as well as a few locations from Essos as well. Not to be left out, the show’s iconic Wall and Castle Black will also be represented in the exhibit.

Melisandre is a LIAR! Now, there have been rumors forever that Melisandre and her visions are a bit misguided when it comes to picking out who, exactly, is Azor Ahai. We, personally, believe that even though Stannis is alive in the books (but not the show), he will soon be dead for real, allowing for the unraveling, twist-y betrayal of Melisandre and her visions. Take, for example, the letter Jon Snow received from Ramsay Bolton, demanding his bride (fake Arya) and Reek returned to him. It came without the typical Ramsay accouterment—namely script written in blood and a piece of skin, so cute his calling cards are—putting its creator into question. Considering Melisandre's obsession with Jon Snow, could this have been her way of trying to get him to break his vows (before that whole betrayal thing where Jon Snow was murdered by his fellow Night's Watchmen) in order to gain control over him for Stannis (who is still alive in the books)? If that's the case, all of this points even further to Melisandre being a potentially corrupt, manipulative user of trickery to gain power in the literal game of thrones. After all: women are so often without power in this universe. Maybe Melisandre is using her knowledge of the Lord of Light and pyromancer tricks and what natural magical skill she has/acquired in her priestess training (we really don't know anything about the legitimacy of that, after all) in order to mess things up in the Realm enough that she has power, either for Stannis or herself. It'd be a real Cersei move—if Cersei had actual skill and political acumen. Maybe then, too, her resurrection of Jon Snow (because I mean, C'MON, it's happening) could make his rebirth all the more nefarious and menacing. If she has control of him, then what? We should also add, this could still bring about our own personal theory that Jon Snow is the next Night's King.

So far, the concept art released by HBO only offers a glimpse of the throne room in King’s Landing and the ever-popular Iron Throne. However, the announcement also hints that we’ll also see recreations from the King’s Road, additional locations in King’s Landing, the House of Black and White, and the city of Meereen under the command Daenerys Targaryen and her Unsullied army.

Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition will begin this fall in Europe before eventually making its way to the U.S. and other countries around the world. More specific dates and locations will reportedly be announced soon.
