As True Detective season 3 unfolds, it becomes clear that Pizzolatto has decided to do everything he did in season 1 over and over and over again, to the point where the new season – which debuts on HBO this weekend – starts to feel like a remake of season 1.

In George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, he wrote a scene in which Bran Stark’s nanny, who’s nicknamed Old Nan, tells the little lord a story about The Long Night, a deadly period of Westerosi history in which a cold, hard winter fell that was “endless beyond all memory of man.” Old Nan explains that the terrifying White Walkers hunted with their “packs of pale white spiders big as hounds.” A slightly altered version of the scene appeared in season one of HBO’s Game of Thrones, laying the groundwork for those icy eight-legged creatures to appear in the show at some point.
Now, with the eighth and final season set to debut in April, Martin has released our first-ever look at the ice spiders from his fantasy series. Take a look below. Read More »
