If you've seen the first episode of the final season of 'Game of Thrones', you'd have come across many things that may seem very probable. That's exactly how and why theories come into place, isn't it? And I believe you already have a few of them tucked under your belt. For instance, after seeing Lord Umber trapped in the 'death swirl' created by the Night King, we do believe the swirl has some relevance in the last season, since we've been seeing it since season 1. It could also mean it has a prominent clue on how to defeat the Night King and his army. Well, that's what theories do, build interest and a narrative for the show. © HBO Similarly, there's another theory doing the rounds. Remember Arya and Gendry and how they parted ways? It broke our hearts to see them bid adieu in the most unfavourable circumstances, but they meet again in season 8, where they are both relieved the other is alive. Gendry, a blacksmith, is busy at Winterfell forging weapons from Dragonglass and Valyrian Steel to defeat the Wights and the White Walkers and being an ace blacksmith himself, he makes some rather indestructible weapons. After a flirtatious banter between the two, Arya asks Gendry to forge her a weapon and I think that's the most romantic gesture I've seen off late! An assassin asking her former crush to craft her the finest weapon of all. Well, we do believe it's the finest because the weapon Arya has asked Gendry to make for her will play a pivotal role in the season. © HBO Let's look at all the facts here. Arya pulls out a drawing and passes it on to Gendry so he can make it. The weapon looks like a double-ended spear/staff, with a Dragonglass and a Valyrian Steel blade on each end, both detachable. Now, if you see the season 8 trailer again, you'll see Arya fight with a weapon that looks like a staff, and not to forget she got adequate training fighting with a staff when she was trying to become one of the 'Faceless Men', so it all adds up I suppose. But that's not all. According to Tommy Dunne, the weapon master of Game Of Thrones, there is a creation in season 8, which is apparently going to steal the show and I bet it's the weapon Aryá asks Gendry to make for her! © HBO “There is one creation in season 8 that is absolutely phenomenal. It'll be a showstopper. That was great to finish. It was great to make, great to design it that it was about to be reverse-engineered and made into two different items.” Dunne told a popular international publication. Does he mean Arya's weapon may put an end to the show? I wonder! Well, we really can't wait to know what Gendry forges for Arya and if the weapon itself is a showstopper like Tommy said. After all, the weapon Arya asks Gendry to make does have two pointy ends!
Last month, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a tricky photograph of Indian cricketers who were seen glued to their iPads and mobile phones while waiting for departure at the Mumbai airport. The Indian cricket board then revealed that the Indian stars, including the likes of MS Dhoni, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Manish Pandey were playing a multiplayer game and asked fans to guess the name of the game. As we wait for the departure announcement from Mumbai, some of them are playing a very popular multiplayer game. #TeamIndia Any guesses? pic.twitter.com/Y1n8AdHxhn — BCCI (@BCCI) October 30, 2018 "As we wait for the departure announcement from Mumbai, some of them are playing a very popular multiplayer game," the BCCI had tweeted. As soon as the tweet caught the attention of Indian cricket fans, everyone quickly came to a general consensus that Dhoni and his teammates were playing PUBG - a popular multiplayer shooting game. While the BCCI didn't really disclose the name of the shooting game they were playing, Dhoni's recent comments (special request to be precise) further establishes his love for PUBG. As Virat Kohli turned 30 on 5th November, the BCCI shared a birthday video for the Indian captain. #HappyBirthdayVirat Wishes galore for the Indian captain from the team as he celebrates his 30th Birthday. Here's to many more match-winning moments and ðð in the cabinet. Full video here - https://t.co/MCnjtfoIuD pic.twitter.com/Yr83r8LPyS — BCCI (@BCCI) November 5, 2018 The video comprised of birthday messages and wishes for Kohli from his Team India mates, head coach Ravi Shastri and the support staff. But, it was Dhoni, who was seen leading the wishes in the video, who caught our attention. While wishing his successor on his special day, Dhoni made a special request: "Hi Virat, wish you a very happy birthday. I know you are a big PUBG fan because I've just found this old picture of yours. So, why don't you come and especially teach Manish Pandey how to play a first-person shooting game". Apart from Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja was seen urging Kohli to consume rice, flatbread (roti) and lots of sweets. On the other hand, Kedar Jadhav wished: "May you get younger and fitter with every passing day and handsome too". The video ends with Shastri's wish for the 30-year-old batsman. "On behalf of the entire support team, a very happy birthday. Happy 25th, that's what we believe you are. Have an absolute blast," Shastri said. Wishing you a lot of success and happiness in the year ahead. Happy Birthday, @imvkohli! pic.twitter.com/HcXX88rXJn — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) November 5, 2018 Earlier in the day, Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar, too, wrote a warm message for Kohli on Twitter. "Wishing you a lot of success and happiness in the year ahead. Happy Birthday, @imvkohli!," he tweeted. Terrorising opposition bowlers and shattering batting records, the Indian skipper has been in blistering form this year. During the recently-concluded ODI series against West Indies, Kohli broke Tendulkar's record to become the fastest to 10,000 ODI runs. While the Little Master took 259 innings to achieve the feat, Kohli needed just 205 innings to beat his idol.
