Daenerys Targayen continued her spectacular ascent to the Iron Throne last night, adding yet another name to her already impressive list of titles: Mhysa, which means “mother” but sounds an awful lot like “messiah.” As she crowd surfed over the slaves she freed outside the gates of Yunkai, and the camera pulled up, up, up, and the dragons soared, and the crowd roared, it really was one of the most gorgeous images we’ve seen this season. I had goosebumps. She’s Christ, she’s the Madonna, she’s Genghis Khan, and she’s Marilyn Monroe all rolled into one.

While waiting for last night’s big Drag Race finale to get underway, Dance Mom‘s Abby Lee Miller spent time in the lounge perusing the World of Wonder’s coffee table book, The World According to Wonder (available on Amazon!)
From top: The crowd outside waiting for tickets, Pork Chop’s seating card, a tile signed by Tyne Daley in the lobby, YouTube sensation Tyler Oakley checks out The World According to Wonder, Damiana works the red carpet, the crown sits alone and unattended on a stool backstage, seating cards for the Dowager Queen Needles and Alaska’s mum.
A slightly unsatisfactory ending to a spectacular season.Jackson’s dead! He’s alive! He’s in a cocoon! He’s dead again! No, wait! He’s rising! NAKED! He’s getting up in slow motion! NAKED! Now he’s a wolf! Now he’s not! My GOD, I’m exhausted. Does this mean that he’s a werewolf, or did that pass out of him? And if he is a werewolf, will he be joining the new alpha pack next season? I don’t know, I don’t know. I’m just trying to see some peen through the mist here.
Vampire Diaries season finale shocker: Elena’s a VAMPIRE! Omg! I TOTALLY don’t even care anymore! They wasted so much time this season killing and re-killing the goddamn originals, then killing them again, then keeping Jeremy offscreen for a dozen episodes UNTIL I JUST DIDN’T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT ANYTHING ANYMORE. I don’t even know that I’m going to watch next season. Oh, who am I kidding. It’s still the best-looking cast on television. I’ll be there. But I’m warning the producers right now: You’re on thin ice. DON’T FUCK IT UP!
