Synopsis: The Night King has broken through the wall and is heading straight for Winterfell. All forces are headed to the North in order to help protect the realms of men….all except Cersei’s of course. She is playing her own game and refusing to send aid, instead letting them all kill themselves so she can keep the throne and rule over what is left. Only Jaime has deserted her and heads north to help because as we know he is an honourable man and always keeps his word. So all players have gathered, all teams are about to meet and the world as we know it is about to battle until the enemies from the North are beaten and then move to the south until someone worthy sits on that Iron Throne and rightly rules over Westeros.

Synopsis:
The revenge sorted, and car retrieved, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is ready to settle back into retired life. Unfortunately, other people aren’t prepared to let him do whatever he wants and that dabble back in the industry is enough for them to demand he stays in and repays a favour from long ago. Unable to find a way out of this, Wick reluctantly takes the job and the knowledge that the work may well be who he is and retirement was only a fleeting and unrealistic dream.
