Game Of Thrones, Final Episode 6, Arya To Kill Daenerys, What Happen To Jon Snow?



Game Of Thrones, Final Episode 6, Arya To Kill Daenerys, What Happen To Jon Snow?

So far so good, Game of Thrones has come and it’s time the series movie come to an end. The Season 8, Final Episode 6 is premiered today and according to the Home Box Office, HBO, this would be the last episode of the last season for the series movie. If Arya Kill Daenerys, what would happen to Jon Snow?

The series movie happened to be the most watched in recent time and for this, there have been several spoilers but promised there won’t be any spoiler as regard this article, NIGERIA NEWS  gist.

However, before the airing of the series starts on 14th April 2019. Part of 5 episodes has been leaked several spoilers tends to extract part of the clips and distribute through the torrent site which makes the series to be the most pirated of all time. But considering to be saved from spoilers, it’s better off to stay offline from the internet throughout today, till you get to watch the last episode with so much enthusiasm.

As regards to the question asked that, ” If Arya Kill Daenerys, what would happen to Jon Snow? “, the answer would be in the last episode and in order to keep your gues triggered the fascination and suspense the last episode would bring to you, you would need to try every possible means to keep away from spoiler and ensure you watch the last episode on time as you may find yourself discussing with a spoiler.


It is important to think about who would sit on the ‘iron throne’ as Daenerys and Jon Snow are both Targarians and Jon Snow is in love with Daenerys. Moreso, Jon Snow is not found to be obsessed with securing a throne or title for himself. On the other hand, Daenerys is so obsessed with the ‘iron throne’. Could it be the reason Daenerys could be killed by Arya Stark in order for Jon Snow to mount the ‘Iron throne’? If Daenerys is killed what condition would Jon Snow be?

In order to know the answer to all this as to whether it would happen or not, play a caution game of staying away from spoilers. The NIGERIA NEWS gist then brings to you some of the websites you should stay away from in order to avoid spoiler for the final taste of the series recipe.

And they are:

  • Stay away from reading Youtube comment as you might meet spoiler there.
  • Stay away from Twitch chat, Whatsapp chat, most especially the group chats.
  • Stay away from some website headlines relating to Game of Thrones in order to get clicks for their website. A few examples I can mention is UK tabloids and inverse. You can google anything related to Game of Thrones to see some of the clickbait sites.
  • Finally, stay totally away from the internet for some few hours as the spoilers are very much on the internet and make sure you don’t initiate discussion over Game of Thrones to avoid anybody spoiling the last recipe for you.

Do enjoy the last episode, click and download it here.

All EPL New Rules For The 2019/2020 Season



All EPL New Rules For The 2019/2020 Season

The International Football Association Board, IFAB, has affirmed English Premier League, EPL new rules and changes for the 2019/2020 season. The new principles would influence the Freekicks, Handball, Substitution, Drop ball and cards for coaches, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

The Video Aide Ref popularly known as VAR would so be implemented by next season in the English Premier League, EPL. The aforementioned areas where there would be new implementation would surely have a great effect in the league.


EPL New Rules Ahead 2019/2020 Season…




The rule that would be implemented under this is that there would be no chance given to any players to waste time on the pitch anymore, as substituted players would have to leave the pitch at the closest side of the pitch and card may probably be awarded for wasting time.


The Goalkeepers would, therefore, have to have a foot put on the line and would not be allowed to touch the goal posts before the shoot out of the penalty kicks. In this manner, no Goalkeeper would be able to exploit any chance to avert an opportunity to lead.


The coach would also have to be carded by the Referee in a similar as players were being carded during a match. Both yellow and red cards would also be applicable to coaches as well as starting from next season.


  • The goal would be denied if the ball actually strikes any player’s hand during the development to have a goal.
  • If any player should make any favourable moves in handling the ball outside the penalty kickbox, even if it regarded unintentional, freekicks would be awarded.
  • The IFAB dispose of ‘manufactured’ restarts if there be any drop balls.

The IFAB make it clear that:

“The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation.

“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.

“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”
