    Sounds interesting.

  2. Kevin Tran says:

    Is Michiel Huisman done on GoT or is he thinking about coming back for the 8th and final season even though his character is alive.

  3. Lyndy says:

    I really hope to see Daario again at some point on GOT before the series finale…

    I know it’s based on a book, but the premise of “Gone” reminds me of a short-lived series from about ten years back called “The Inside.”

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one who remembers that short-lived series from ANGEL producer Tim Minear. It’s a shame we never got a DVD set showing the episodes in their correct order, along with, I think, a couple that never aired.
