**Cue The Host**

oak

Welcome back audience to the Gamers House Reality Show! Over the first season of this Community Event we have watched contestants get casted, enter the house and compete to be among the final 4. You have voted and sent Lightning, Spyro, Zelda and Peppy Hare into the finals.

 

During the challenge this week our contestants were tasked with completing a 5k Race. During this race they answered trivia questions, slayed waves and waves of the flood and traversed an Olympic Sized swimming pool. The first player to cross the finish line was Spyro and the winner with the fastest time (due to time deductions) was Lightning. Then we sent everything to Twitter for you to decide who the winner should be.

 

Before we get to the results, we have brought back some fan favorites to talk about the 4 finalists.  Please welcome back Bowser, Nemesis, Turok, Aloy and Kratos!

 

Kratos let’s start with you! First of all, congratulations on God of War being named 2018’s Game of the Year!

Kratos 1

 

Kratos: Was there any doubt that my game would be Game of the Year?

 

Luna: Of course not. Please, give us your thoughts on the final 4 contestants.

 

Kratos: Spyro is a great performer but I can’t see how he made the finals with his social game. Zelda is a beautiful Princess but to see her over Princess Peach is a joke. She probably signed a deal to guarantee her spot in the finale due to Hyrule Castle being the location.

 

Luna: Ok then… Well we also would like your help in picking a winner. The Twitter poll ended in a tie so out of Lightning and Zelda, who do you want to win Gamers House?

 

Kratos: Seeing as I would have only expected Lightning to be in the finale, I would have to give her the edge.

 

Luna: Thank you for your time Kratos. Please take your seat, we will have refreshments later. Bowser, it’s your turn! Tell us what you think about the final 4.

Bowser: Gwahahaha… Spyro has made it! My little buddy will win this season and prove that villains can have it all!

 

Luna: Um… Spyro isn’t in contention to win. We brought you all in to break the tie that the Twitter poll set. You can only vote for Lightning or Zelda.

 

Bowser: Foiled again! Lightning is strong and has always been nice to me, but Zelda is a beautiful Princess. My pick to win it all is Lightning!

 

Luna: Right! Thank you for your vote Bowser, you can return to your seat.

 

Some time later…..

 

After a few minutes of deliberations, we tallied the votes from the eliminated competitors. We have a winner!

Good morning Players! This is what you’ve all been working up towards; surviving until you have reached the finale. Now you will test your skills and race to the finish line. Keep in mind that there are no longer any immunities for winning, but winning will state your case to the audience that will have 4 days to vote for the winner. This challenge will be a race through the world of Halo while being chased by the Flood, contestants will need to swim across an olympic sized pool and answer trivia questions along the way. Let’s send it down to Luna and Lakitu to get things started.

Luna: Alright contestants, you’ve heard the rules. Here are some Plasma Rifles to assist you in your 5K. First up will be a round of Trivia.

Who was the first Player eliminated on this season of Gamers House?

The contestants rack their brains and Jot down the answer.

Peppy: Jensen

Lightning: Orchid

Zelda: Diddy

Spyro: Diddy

The correct answer is… Orchid!

Orchid

Um Peppy, you are Jensen were partners 2 weeks ago. Why would you write down his name?

Peppy: Never Give Up. Trust Your Instincts!

Luna: Yeah well your instincts were wrong there pal. Lightning for answering correctly you will have a 2 minute advantage. 2 Minutes will be subtracted from your time at the end. Each correctly answered question will have time subtracted from your finish time. Players ready? Set … Go!

And they’re off, Spyro taking flight and the early lead followed by Lightning, Zelda and Peppy who has dropped his glasses. Peppy better get a move on, the Flood will be invading soon. Lightning is quick and when the first round of Flood enemies appear, she jumps off a giant rock, turns and shoots 3 in the face exploding their contents onto a far behind peppy.

Spyro dodges each obstacle with precision and uses both his Plasma Rifle and Fireballs to shoot and clear a path to the next Trivia Question. Zelda is quickly behind gliding with the sparks behind her and Peppy… Well Peppy has found a Ghost and has started driving towards the next question.

Trivia #2: Which character was able to avoid elimination by not being listed in the bottom 4?

Spyro: Snake

Lightning: Snake

Zelda: Snake

Peppy: Bowser

Correct! 3 of you will have time dedicated while Peppy, has missed again. Peppy do you not remember how the house was in uproar when Snake hacked the results and removed his name from the elimination ballot?

Peppy: Slippy’s not such a screw up after all!

Luna: Yea… righttttt

The contestants have reached the swimming pool and starts making their way across the water. Spyro’s lead has diminished as Zelda and Lightning are able to surpass him. But he is still way ahead of Peppy who has just finished the trivia number 2. We are about halfway through the course.

Zelda is the first to finish and performs a quick wardrobe change with her powers.

Trivia 3: What was Nemesis favorite phrase?

Zelda: He didn’t talk much… did he?

Lightning: Stars

Spyro: Stars

Peppy: Sorry guys.. I’ve got to sit this one out.

Lightning and Spyro you are correct. We are heading into the final stretch and Spyro and Lightning are neck and neck rounding the final turn. Zelda is close behind and Peppy is still trying to swim across the pool. Lakitu get into position for a photo finish…

lakitu

The winner to cross the finish line is… SPYRO! But wait, now we factor in the trivia questions time. Spyro had 2 correct answers while Lightning had 3. So based off of time, the winner of the final challenge is… Lightning!

Congratulations! Now we will send the competition to Twitter. Audience, vote for the character that you want to win the Video Game Reality House… Season 1!

Umm.. Has anyone seen Peppy?

Peppy: I saw my life flash before my eyes!

Luna: Us too Peppy, us too.

Game of Thrones S7 Finale

Happy Moonday Novas! Last night was the epic finale episode of Game of Thrones season 7 and we’re here on Monday morning to provide a recap and our thoughts.  Before you begin readin I will have a recap of some scenes so this is your official **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert** warning! 

The episode was the longest of the season tieing up a few loose ends that we wanted to see as the episode ran. We start with the Unsullied and Grey Worm standing outside of kings landing in a face off with Bronn and Jaime while Tyrion and Jon pull up to King’s Landing on the water. This scene was very intense and awesome as we see faces of characters that have not intereacted in some time. Similar to how the group Beyond the Wall talked through their differences, this group for peace were sizing each other up.

group-shot-game-of-thrones-season-7-finale-trailer

Brienne sees that the Hound is alive after she left him for dead a few seasons back. The Hound finds out that arya is alive from Brienne when they encounter each other at King’s Landing.

Cersei gives the mountain orders on who to kill first; Dany, Tyrion and Jon Snow in that order. Cersei the makes an entrance after the others are seated with Qyburn, Jaime, The Mountain and her army. Upon her arrival her disdain is obvious when she notices that Dany is not present. Of course, she had to make the grandest entrance on the back of Drogon with Rhaegal flying in the background.

All characters enter the dragon pit (where the meeting is to take place( and it’s as intense and eerie as we would expect. It’s quiet until Sandor and Gregor Clegane have a moment. The Hound confronts his older brother in front of everyone, then turns to retrieve the “surprise” for the audience. Since the interruptions have begun, the every brunt Euron calls out his nephew. Everyone sits back as Euron threatens to kill Yara if Theon does not surrender to him. Very bold move indeed and as expected Theon just sits there.

After everyone’s feelings are known, The Hound brings out the walker and lets him loose for everyone to see. Cersei and Jaime are visibly shaken by the creature and now understands the threat that everyone is talking about; or so we think. A scene that was interesting to me was when Qyburn, Cersei’s hand and the once outlawed maester, got up to examine the Undead hand of the walker. There’s something peculiar about that scene but I can’t quite figure out why it makes me uncomfortable.

After the demonstration and annialhation of the walker, Euron flees to the Iron Islands with the Iron Fleet. Later in the episode you find out that this was a plan all along by Cersei to allow Euron to take the Iron Fleet to pick up mercenaries. My question is, how did Cersei know when he would leave? Was it planned that no matter what they brought that Euron would turn tail and run?

cersei

So that’s enough of a recap as that was one of the most important scenes of the night. We expect Jon and Dany’s camp to be hopeful that Cersei will accept the truce, but we now that it’s not going to be an easy task. Cersei is bent on being the only ruler, she calls Dany out by saying “How do I know that you will not use my ceasefire to raise more armies to your cause?” This shows that Cersei has not intention of calling a truce with the enemy. She’s always thinking 1 step ahead, which is what makes her dangerous.

A follow-up scene that had my heart racing was Tyrion literally stepping into the Lions den. When he faced Cersei, I didn’t know what to think and since no one had died in the episode yet, I was really nervous. The standoff between both Cersei and Tyrion explained motives behind Cersei’s behavior even after knowing that he didn’t kill Joeffrey. Cersei straight up blames Tyrion for their family falling apart. She says that him killing their father Tywin, left the family open and unprotected in the views of everyone else. She states that Tommen and Myrcella’s deaths are direct results of people no longer fearing the Lannisters. Cersei played Tyrion, by not killing him she allowed him to believe that she was willing to call a truce to preserve what’s precious in life.

Another important scene was the trial of Arya. Sansa has been trained and manipulated by Littlefinger to think of the worst possible outcome. I’m not going to lie, this scene had me verry upset at Sansa, I just knew she was about to fall for another trap by Littlefinger. I’m super glad that I was wrong! Sansa, Arya and Bran all played littlefinger like a fiddle. I remember a few episodes ago when Bran gave Arya the dagger how I mentioned that Bran had to be plannin planninggn, well this was it. The same dagger that tore the family apart sliced open the throat of Littlefinger. It was epic, I was happy, all is good with the world in Winterfell.

In Winterfell Sam and Gilly arrive which reveals another great piece of information. We knew from a few episodes back that Jon was not a bastard and the heir to the thrrone. I did wonder how they married if Lyanna was “abducted.” Sam asked Bran if he could see the events now as he told him about the High Maester’s reports, wheeew, Sam was listening to Gilly! Bran, who is learning to control his abilities, went back to see that Lyanna and Rhaegar were in love and that the coo brought on by Robert Baratheon was a sham.

lyanna
Is it me or does Rhaegar look like Viscerys?

We also get Jon’s birth name; Aegon Targaryen!

 

This episode set a collision course for the next season. What will Jaime do now that he knows Cersei’s intentions and plans? Will Jon finaly find out his origin and what effect will this have on his relationship with Dany? What’s next for the Stark girls now that Littlefinger is a cold corpse? Most importantly, what will happen when Jon and Dany find out that Visceron is a part of the undead army? There’s so many moving parts for next season and I cannot wait!

Quotes:

“I was on trying to protect her.” -Brienne

“You and me both.”- The Hound

“I left this sh** city because I didnt want to die in it. Am I goimg to die in it?” -Hound

“The king of the north will not take sides.  I know that Ned Stark’s son will be true to his word.” – cersei

“I’m about to step into a room with the most murderous woman in the world, who has already tried to kill me twice… that I know of. Who is the idiot?” – Tyrion

“I’ve traveled all over the world and this is the only thing that’s scared me.” -Euron

“I loved your mother since I was a boy.” -Littlefinger  “and you betrayed her.” -Sansa , “I’ve loved you the most.” -Little Finger , “And you betrayed me.” Sansa.

Notable Scenes:

  • Jaime challenging Cersei
  • Cersei noticing 2 dragons instead of 3
  • Ending scene of the Night King coming through the wall

Let’s just all take a moment to realize how incredibly smart Cersei is. She’s probably the smartest character in the show and you can’t helo but admire her. I can see why Sansa was infatuated with her during her time at King’s Landing. Ok, that’s enough of my thoughts, what did yuo think about the episode? What di you think will happen in season 8? Who’s dying first out of the characters that we have remaining? Let’s talk Game of Thrones!

-Luna 🙂
