Winter is coming... for the MTA. We don't mean the impending L Train apocalypse this time, either. They've released official Game of Thrones MetroCards, available for a limited time at Grand Central Terminal beginning on Tuesday (12/4). There are 250,000 total made, depicting Jon Snow's revival, the birth of Daenerys Targaryen's dragons, the massacre at Hardhome, and Cersei Lannister's walk of atonement, and they can be purchased through the ticket booths and large ticket vending machines in the station. Grand Central is a busy place anyway; expect major lines if you're hoping to score these. While you're there, you can also see ads for the eighth and final season of the series (which is due to premiere on HBO in April of 2019) - they are taking over the station at the moment.
Meanwhile, by all appearances, George R. R. Martin continues to do almost anything but work on The Winds of Winter, the long overdue sixth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series that inspired the HBO series. His new series for SyFy, Nightflyers, based on his 1980 novella, recently debuted to less than positive reviews. And he did release a book, just not the one we were necessarily waiting for: Fire & Blood details the history of the Targaryens 300 years before the events of GoT. He also made a video guide to NYC pizza. Yes, really. Watch it below.
