Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season seven.
Of the many small callbacks to the first season of "Game of Thrones," one of our favorite smaller references you might have missed was a parallel between Jon Snow and Ned Stark as they each confronted Littlefinger.
Jon went down to the crypts of Winterfell to pay his respects to Ned's statue before leaving for Dragonstone. Littlefinger unwisely followed him and wound up being choked up against the wall — just like Ned did on the first season.
Here's Jon Snow attacking Littlefinger on season seven, episode two:
And Ned Stark doing the same thing on season one, episode three:
When Ned attacked Littlefinger, it was because he thought the conniving man was lying about having Catelyn hidden in a brothel. When Ned realized Catelyn really was inside, he let Littlefinger go immediately.
After Ned left, Littlefinger said to himself: "Oh, the Starks. Quick tempers, slow minds."
But he had no clever words for Jon after the newly crowned King in the North threatened him.
Littlefinger seemed to be intentionally goading Jon into action. They were standing in front of Ned's statue, marking the place where his bones were buried.
"I was sorry when he died," Littlefinger told Jon. "Your father and I had our differences, but he loved Cat very much. So did I. She wasn't fond of you, was she?"
Those are some choice words coming from the man who orchestrated a massive betrayal against Ned, leading to his imprisonment and then execution.
Jon tried to dismiss Littlefinger, telling him he didn't belong in the crypts and that he had nothing to say to the mischievous lord. But when Jon turned his back to go, Littlefinger just had to get the final word in (as Sansa pointed out on the premiere).
"Not even thank you?" Littlefinger said. "If it weren't for me, you'd have been slaughtered on that battlefield. You have many enemies, my king, but I swear to you I am not one of them. I love Sansa, as I loved her mother."
That was the final straw. Just as it had been for his father figure, Ned, the second Littlefinger dared to bring Sansa/Catelyn into their tense conversation, it was threat time.
"Touch my sister and I'll kill you myself," Jon said.
Many fans had been hoping for this scene in the crypts to have a much larger purpose. The grave next to Ned Stark's belongs to Lyanna — Jon's mother.
Jon still has no idea who his real parents are, yet the show has given us reason to believe Littlefinger does know. When promo photos for "Game of Thrones" season seven first dropped and we saw Jon in the crypts near Lyanna's statue, we were hoping that meant he would learn the truth.
But alas, we'll have to settle for our King in the North roughing up Littlefinger and riding off into the snow. It's still nice to see more parallels between Jon and Ned, though. Jon's continued emulation of his father figure proves how important Ned's influence was in his ability to lead honorably.

Episode three,"The Queen's Justice," premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season seven.
Sunday's "Game of Thrones" episode might have delivered the Nymeria/Arya direwolf scene everyone was hoping for, but some people were still left wondering where another important direwolf was.
Where the heck is Ghost?
"Game of Thrones" writer and producer Bryan Cogman tweeted late Sunday evening to say they filmed a scene with Ghost and Jon, but it didn't make the cut.
FYI... We shot a Jon/Ghost scene. Didn't make it in. I tried! Thx for watching, everybody. #Stormborn— Bryan Cogman (@b_cogman) July 24, 2017
"FYI ... We shot a Jon/Ghost scene," Cogman wrote. "Didn't make it in. I tried! Thx for watching everybody."
Jon Snow's albino direwolf hasn't been seen since early on in the sixth season. Ghost stayed loyally by his master's side while Jon was dead. But ever since he was resurrected, the direwolf has been M.I.A.
People were especially miffed when Ghost failed to make an appearance at the epic Battle of the Bastards. According to the directors and producers involved with the show, Ghost's absence is largely due to the budget.
"[Ghost] was in [the Battle of the Bastards] in spades originally, but it’s also an incredibly time consuming and expensive character to bring to life," director Miguel Sapochnik told Business Insider last year. "Ultimately, we had to choose between Wun-Wun and the direwolf, so the dog bit the dust."
And in a new Entertainment Weekly report, James Hibberd said the difficulty of making the direwolves appear realistic is the challenge.
"One reason we haven’t seen the direwolves more often is that the producers set a high bar for visual realism on the series and ultra-large wolves are difficult to render convincingly,"Hibberd wrote. "A naturalistic furry animal takes more time and resources to create using computer effects than a fantastical scaly dragon."
Now that Jon has left Winterfell once again, fans were heartbroken to not even get a goodbye scene between Jon and Ghost. We're guessing a farewell moment between them was the scene Cogman said was cut.
Fingers crossed that Ghost reappears at some point this year or at the very least for an epic scene on the series' final season. The Starks' connection with their direwolves is one of the most underutilized aspects of their characters and it'd be a shame to lose that entirely.
At least this episode had the now-gigantic Nymeria make a brief return — even if it was bittersweet and left us feeling sad.
Warning: Spoilers for "Game of Thrones" season seven, episode two. If you aren't caught up on the series, read at your own risk.
Being on one of the most brutal TV shows in history, "Game of Thrones" stars know they can be killed off at any time.
No one is safe, just ask Ned Stark.
And according to actress Jessica Henwick — whose character Nymeria Sand suffered a violent death on Sunday's "Thrones"— there is one tell-tale sign that lets actors know when they're about to get the axe.
Henwick told Entertainment Weekly that she was busy in New York filming Netflix's "Iron Fist" when she got a call from both showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Both, it turns out, is the operative word for actors trying to parse whether their character will make it another week.
"As soon as you hear that more than one of them is on the call, you know what that means," Henwick explained. "If it's just one they're probably talking about the story. But if it's both of them then you know."
Benioff and Weiss told Henwick that the death of Nymeria Sand was crucial to the show.
"It's really important that you come back," they told her. "Otherwise your character will just disappear and fans will never get a resolution."
In the end, Henwick negotiated a two-weekend release from "Iron Fist," and got on a flight from New York to Belfast, where "Thrones" is filmed. There she met her gruesome end at the hands of Euron Greyjoy's army.
Last year, we took a look at what it would cost to live in the homes of your favourite fictional characters.
However, with most film and TV scenes filmed in the same rooms and from the same angles, it's hard to tell what's actually inside.
If you've ever wondered how big the homes of your favourite fictional characters actually are, look no further.
Clarendon Serviced Apartments has put together detailed, furnished floor plans of some of the homes of the most famous fictional characters.
From Carrie Bradshaw's New York City apartment to Dexter Morgan's Miami-based lair, scroll down for a detailed look at how big the flats and apartments of seven famous fictional characters actually are, along with their make-believe addresses.
FRIENDS: Apartments 19 & 20, 495 Grove Street, New York — Chandler & Joey/Monica & Rachel's Apartments.
Apartment 20, where the gang spend most of their time, and where Monica and Chandler end up, would cost £3.08 million today.
SHERLOCK: 221B Baker Street, London — Sherlock Holmes’ Flat.
Now home to a museum, Sherlock Holmes' Baker Street flat is one of London's top tourist locations.
THE BIG BANG THEORY: Apartments 4A & 4B, 2311 North Los Robles Avenue, Pasadena — Sheldon, Leonard & Penny's Apartments.
The New York Post estimates that Sheldon and Leonard's apartment would cost around $2,000 (£1,535) a month in rent.

Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season seven, including speculation of future events.
Readers of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series have long theorized that the books are meant to be an in-universe history written by a character. Now, thanks to a small scene on the second episode of "Game of Thrones" season seven, more weight is being thrown behind this theory.
People believe "A Song of Ice and Fire" is a history "written" by Sam Tarly — similar to the way Bilbo Baggins is the "author" of "The Hobbit" within Tolkein's universe.
The maesters of the Citadel are tasked with writing the histories of the world, whether it's reports on current events or researching other texts. On this week's episode, Archmaester Ebrose tells Sam that writing with style and accuracy is the key to making sure your work is read later.
"I'm not writing 'A Chronicle of the Wars Following the Death of King Robert I,' so it can sit on the shelf unread," Ebrose told Sam.
When Sam made an unimpressed face, Ebrose asked what he'd name the book instead.
"Possibly something a bit more poetic?" Sam replied.
Redditors on the /r/asoiaf subreddit picked up on this moment, believing this was a hint at the idea that Sam Tarly is really the one "narrating" George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. "A Song of Ice and Fire" is certainly a more poetic name, so perhaps there's credence to this prediction.
As Redditor Fat_Walda pointed out, Martin has said before that he is most similar to Sam of all the characters in Westeros. So if anyone within the universe would be the "author" of the series, it makes sense for it to be Sam. Perhaps the final chapter of Martin's series will show Sam sitting down to write the soon-to-be legendary experiences of Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and the other heroes of Westeros.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee that is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, shot back at President Donald Trump on Twitter on Monday morning, after the president called Schiff "sleazy."
"With respect Mr. President, the problem is how often you watch TV, and that your comments and actions are beneath the dignity of the office," Schiff tweeted in response to Trump's tweet.
Earlier that day, Trump had tweeted: "Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into 'Russia,' spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!"
According to an April Washington Post report, Trump routinely watches a host of cable news networks, starting his mornings off with CNBC's "Squawk Box," Fox Business Network's "Mornings With Maria" which is hosted by Maria Bartiromo, and Fox News' "Fox & Friends." Trump has repeatedly praised "Fox & Friends" for its favorable coverage towards him, while blasting networks like MSNBC and CNN for their more critical coverage of his administration and policies. He has called the latter "fake news" on a number of occasions, both in public and on Twitter.
At night, the Post reported, the president occasionally "hate-watches" cable news shows that are critical of him, sometimes talking on the phone with friends while doing so. Shows and journalists that Trump has frequently lampooned include MSNBC's "Morning Joe," NBC's "Nightly News," and CNN's Jeff Zeleny and Don Lemon.
Trump is reportedly sensitive to comments about his TV-watching habits.
"He gets very irritated when we all report that he watches a lot of TV. He does watch a lot of TV — it doesn't seem like that's a massively controversial statement," Maggie Haberman, a Times reporter who has covered Trump extensively, told The New Yorker last week. "But he doesn't like when that is said because he thinks it's shorthand for saying he doesn’t work that hard."

Warning: Spoilers ahead for HBO's "Game of Thrones" season seven, episode two, "Stormborn."
"Game of Thrones" fans watched in horror this week as Euron Greyjoy's terrifying Iron Fleet wreaked havoc on Daenerys' new allies — Yara and Ellaria. The episode ended with the added tragedy of Theon Greyjoy failing to save his sister and jumping ship, seemingly retracting back into Reekdom.
When I first watched this scene, and realized Theon was about to abandon Yara and run from the fight, I practically threw my hands up in the air.
Where did that come from? Wasn't Yara just bragging to Ellaria about how Theon was her advisor and protector? Didn't Theon already get over his time as "Reek" during the sixth season? Why is his character regressing instead of moving forward?
In the hours after the episode though, I began seeing other members of the fandom discussing how important Theon's moment was, and how it resonated with anyone who has experienced a trauma in their life. I had been shortsighted in my interpretation of Theon's journey.
If your reflex, like mine, was to be disappointed in Theon, I urge you to consider the perspectives of others who believed this was a big moment for the depiction of PTSD and the way it can be triggered. Many people within the "Game of Thrones" community began tweeting and sharing their important understandings of his character.
Credit to #gameofthrones for showing that Theon isn't magically healed. He's still suffering. Badly. And it's going to take time.— Ros (@GameOverRos) July 24, 2017
One person I haven't credited with Theon's scene - @b_cogman. Thank you. You did mental illness right. And I'm proud to be a fan today.— Ros (@GameOverRos) July 24, 2017
At first, I didn't necessarily take issue with Theon's actions — what threw me off was how suddenly it seemed to happen. But my lack of understanding stems from inexperience with personal trauma and triggers.
"We'd maybe fooled ourselves into thinking Theon was out of the woods on his whole Reek experience," showrunner D.B. Weiss said in a behind-the-scenes video. "As we were writing it, we realized you don't just get over what happened to him. That's something that's going to be a part of him for the rest of his life."
And the battle against Euron's terrifying crew was really the first test of Theon being back among bloodshed and torment once again. He seemed to be faring well in the battle until Euron captured Yara and Theon looked around him to see the attackers cutting ears off men and ripping people's tongues out.
"This is a place that triggers the worst of that experience as he sees people around him doing the kinds of things that Ramsay used to do to him," Weiss said. "And to see Euron's pure psycho glee about the whole thing when Theon jumps overboard, that laugh, that's the character's whole encapsulation in that shot."
In an interview with HBO, Alfie Allen explained his perspective on what was happening to Reek in that moment.
"The sight of blood is going to remind him of physical pain or mental torment,"Allen said. "It brings him back to that place, and he's torn as to what to do. The reptilian part of his brain just takes over."
Plus, when you think about it, what was Theon even supposed to do? Euron was clearly ready to cut Yara's throat, so it's doubtful he would have been able to reach her in time to help. And Theon's past experience with Ramsay had taught him that flight (or even death) was preferable to resigning yourself to a drawn-out period of torture — which is surely what Euron had planned.
My initial disappointment with Theon (as opposed to compassion) stemmed from my hope that he had overcome his trauma. Theon is one of the best "Game of Thrones" characters when it comes to sympathetic "villains" who wind up containing more depth than you would have initially thought possible.
Alfie Allen has done a tremendous job of breathing life and empathy into his character, so I've been rooting for him ever since season five (and earlier, to be honest). Hopefully, Theon's journey will move forward once again, and viewers can gain a more nuanced understanding for how the trauma he's undergone will continue to impact him.
Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday's season two premiere of HBO's "Insecure."
"Insecure" fans everywhere tuned in after months of waiting in angst to discover how Issa Rae's character survived a dramatic breakup with her on-screen boyfriend Lawrence on Sunday's second season premiere.
Before we go into what went down, here's where we left off: Lawrence, who is played by actor Jay Ellis, previously moved out of the former couple's Los Angeles apartment after finding out that Issa cheated on him with an ex-fling on season one. Despite several attempts to mend the broken relationship, Issa wasn't able to convince Lawrence that they should get back together by the first season's end.
So back to Sunday's episode: It wasn't until the very last moments of the episode that both Issa and Lawrence were seen on camera together. And boy, was it intense! The final scene begins with Lawrence catching Issa off-guard when he arrives to retrieve his mail, as well as a few "personal items" after barely speaking with each other.
The episode ended with Lawrence initiating sex with Issa and she went with it. And fans had a lot to say about it. In some cases, viewers called it "make-up sex." Others believed the spontaneous encounter was Lawrence's twisted form of revenge.
Lawrence is a pipe layer not a communicator. He had angry sex with Issa to display his dominance. #InsecureHBO— Brazen (@brazenone) July 24, 2017
Wtf, Issa and Lawrence did not have make-up sex, but it is one of those thoughts Issa has. Stay woke. #InsecureHBO— Pė (@Rentur_Q) July 24, 2017
It may be too early to determine what will happen next. However, here are a few important things to keep in mind as the new season unfolds:
1. Lawrence has at least one other sexual partner besides Issa.
Earlier on the episode, fans learned that Lawrence has been having casual relations with another woman. Issa doesn't appear to be aware of this, which could pose some drama down the line.
2. Issa and Lawrence had unprotected sex.
That presents the possibility of sexually transmitted infections or diseases and pregnancy. Both could be scary for the pair.
3. There's no telling how she'll feel about the sex afterward.
Some may argue that Issa never actually gave her consent to have sex. Though she cryptically smiled at the end of the episode, how will she feel later when she has processed it more?
4. Lawrence wasn't clear on when they would actually sit down and talk.
After the two finished, Lawrence can be seen giving Issa a measly kiss on the cheek before heading out. They didn't make any plans to speak again or deal with their issues.
The next episode airs Sunday at 10:30 p.m. on HBO.
Watch a preview of the upcoming episodes below:
Derek Hough has a lot of respect for Jennifer Lopez, his fellow judge and his boss on NBC's "World of Dance."
"She’s just wonderful, she’s a great person, she’s very maternal, she’s very loving. You can definitely get that from her," Hough told INSIDER recently when we asked him to weigh in on Lopez ahead of her 48th birthday on Monday.
While Hough, 32, and Lopez are fellow judges on the reality dance competition, she's also his boss. Lopez is one of the executive producers of the show. But Hough says she doesn't throw her weight around the set.
"The thing is it doesn’t really feel like she's my boss, because when she’s judging, she’s judging with us, so it doesn’t really feel like that for me personally, which is a good thing," Hough said. "She’s part of the team and she’s great at what she does."
There is something that Hough does notice about JLo: She looks really great at 48.
"She looks better than all of us. She’s like a unicorn that’s aging backgrounds," he said.
"World of Dance" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC

The INSIDER Summary:
Fashion can say a lot about what a person is feeling, and that’s exactly what it’s like on “The Bold Type.”
“I think fashion is important especially in a show like this, because like anybody, you pick out your clothes in the morning and that’s kind of dictating how you feel that day,” Katie Stevens, who plays Jane, told INSIDER of the fashion on the show.
Freeform’s new dramedy follows three girls, Jane, Sutton, and Kat, working at a women’s magazine and pursuing their professional dreams. The show is inspired by the life of former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles, who also serves as an executive producer. And of course, the fashion plays a major role in the show — from the fashion closet where the girls convene to the incredible outfits they wear.
Each outfit portrays a particular message that they want to convey.
“I think the fashion in the show is specific to what kind of day these girls are having and what they want to put forth when they’re trying to achieve these levels of their career,” Stevens said. “For these characters, I think it’s really important because when Jane’s feeling sexy, she’s wearing something that’s a little more edgy, and when she’s feeling more professional, she’s wearing something that’s a little more buttoned up.”
All of the fashion is planned by stylist Frank Fleming, a celebrity stylist and costume designer. It’s because of him that the characters are brought to life, Stevens explained.
“He didn’t want us to be these cardboard cutouts of bright colors and what people expect fashion to be,” she said, “He made it more real.”
The clothing designers may be more high-end and expensive than millennials in the city can afford, but the style choices are familiar to young professionals and aspirational. Stevens said it’s a dream to dress up for the show.
“We’re wearing Gucci, we’re wearing Saint Laurent, we’re wearing Givenchy, so it’s really incredible to be a part of a show where you get to wear stuff like that, because it’s just wish fulfillment,” she said.

The INSIDER Summary
Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones," including speculation of future events.
HBO just released exciting new photos from the upcoming "Game of Thrones" season seven episode, "The Queen's Justice." We know from the trailer that Jon and Daenerys are finally about to meet, and fans are already swooning over Jon saying Dany's name.
The official (and maddeningly vague) synopsis for the episode reads: "Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes."
Let's take a closer look at the new photos to see if we discern some hints about what's to come.
Let's start with the juiciest stuff — Jon and Daenerys are clearly about to be face to face for the first time.
Jon's arrival to Dragonstone is a huge moment for fans of the series. In addition to meeting the Mother of Dragons, is there a chance he'll meet an actual dragon as well?
Tyrion's note to Jon failed to mention that Daenerys was expecting him to "bend the knee."
Jon is arriving to Dragonstone with the expectation of meeting a potential ally who can help in the Great War to come. But Daenerys is expecting the King in the North to show up and swear fealty. This should be an interesting clash, to say the least.
It's noteworthy to recall Tyrion's time in Castle Black on the first season. When Benjen Stark warned Tyrion that dark things lurked on the other side of the wall, Tyrion was dismissive of the "tales" about "grumpkins, snarks, and White Walkers."
In this photo, Varys seems to be counselling Daenerys while she holds court. We're guessing Jon is in front of her — so what is Varys saying?
Can we also appreciate Varys' new "robes" that look more like a fur-lined blanket?

Fans of "The Walking Dead" still have about three months before the show returns for its eighth season. But we may have some suggestions that could help with the withdrawal pains.
INSIDER worked with Taykey, a real-time audience data company that can pinpoint specific audiences and analyze what's trending for them, to discover which shows "Walking Dead" fans talk about (when they're not talking about the zombie drama).
Some of these shows are no-brainers, while others will probably be a surprise. You may find it interesting that HBO's "Game of Thrones" just missed our list. It placed No. 11 among the shows that "Dead" fans talk about.
Here are the 10 most talked-about shows among "TWD" fans, according to Taykey.
10. "Teen Wolf" (MTV)
9. "American Horror Story" (FX)
8. "Stranger Things" (Netflix)

Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season seven.
"Game of Thrones" just gave viewers one of the most intimate and loving sex scenes the HBO series has ever seen, but will there be a price to pay later?
At the season seven red carpet premiere, INSIDER spoke with Jacob Anderson about his character Grey Worm's upcoming romance. We wondered if he was worried for Grey Worm and Missandei, given that relationships on "Game of Thrones" don't usually get fairy-tale endings.
"Yeah, no one can be happy in this show, can they? It's just not allowed," Anderson said. "So yeah, I worry for them — those kids. Those crazy kids."
When Missandei and Grey Worm finally expressed their feelings to one another (and got physical), it was a bittersweet moment. Their relationship seemed to come to a head, because Grey Worm was about to leave for war, and Missandei wanted to say goodbye in case she never saw him again.
The new photos for the upcoming episode, "The Queen's Justice," show Grey Worm in his full Targaryen/Unsullied armor, so we can expect to see him in action soon. Last we heard, Daenerys wanted to send the Unsullied to Casterly Rock, the Lannister stronghold.
What if we only got to see Grey Worm and Missandei share a loving moment to make it even more tragic when one of them dies?
Missandei seems safe at Dragonstone for the time being, but Grey Worm is about to lead the Unsullied into full-blown war in Westeros, starting with Casterly Rock. We just saw Euron Greyjoy surprise Yara and Ellaria at sea, so now we're on our toes when it comes to Daenerys' troops being taken unawares by the enemy.
The new image of Grey Worm preparing for battle may have fans worried, but maybe "Game of Thrones" will subvert our expectations in a totally different way and actually just let two characters be happy for once. OK, that actually sounds crazier in writing, but the point is — we just don't know. You might want to prepare yourself for the worst just in case.
"Game of Thrones" season seven continues Sunday with its third episode, "The Queen's Justice."
Warning: There are spoilers ahead from the "Walking Dead" comics and potential spoilers for season eight.
AMC released the first season eight trailer for "The Walking Dead" at Comic-Con, and while many have focused on the final moments of the teaser, there's a brief moment that may signal the end for another character.
About four minutes into the trailer, we see Shiva, King Ezekiel's faithful tiger, taking down several zombies.
Fans may be happy to see Ezekiel's tiger in action, but comic fans may be hesitant to see Shiva's return to screen for a good reason.
This is your last chance to head back before spoilers!
During Rick's war with Negan, Shiva comes to Ezekiel's aid when he finds himself trapped within a group of walkers. While Ezekiel escapes in issue No. 118, things don't turn out so well for Shiva, who gets devoured by the zombies.
Shiva's death is made all the more heart-wrenching by a narration from Ezekiel in which he recalls how he made it out alive. He claims his tiger pet, whom he had been caring for throughout the zombie apocalypse, knew she was sacrificing her life for him.
While the scene in the trailer could be a different instance of Shiva taking down some zombies, we'd be surprised if the tiger makes it through the war. Shiva appears in the comics only for a brief 10 issues before meeting her demise.
The season eight premiere of "The Walking Dead" will air on AMC on October 22.

THIS. JUST. HAPPENED. I knew I felt something on me!! 😖 pic.twitter.com/1Xn7YIfp1p— Shannon Murray (@ShannonMFox4) July 26, 2017
Many viewers, though, applauded Murray's professionalism.
"How did you not feel that thing crawling on you?!! #professional,"wrote one viewer in the Facebook comments to the video.
"OMG, poor Shannon! I would have gone straight into the "something's on me omgomgomg get it off" crazy ninja dance!,"wrote another.
