Rose Leslie knows Jon Snow’s fate on ‘Game of Thrones,’ and seemingly doesn’t like it

We know you’re probably getting sick of these teases by now that hint at an epic final season of Game of Thrones without revealing really anything in the way of details. Only how gobsmacked the participating actors confess to feeling once the cameras stopped rolling. Still, this revelation from Kit Harington during a recent British radio interview is surely going to raise your eyebrows and cause you to wonder what it means. Obviously, we're not about to spoil what ultimately happens to Kit's character, fan favorite Jon Snow. However, Kit has told one person -- his wife and former GoT co-star, Rose Leslie, who played the wilding on a couple seasons and famous accused him of not knowing anything. Rose, it seems, did not like what she was told. During a recent interview with KISS' breakfast crew hosts, Harington said he told his wife Jon Snow's fate sometime last year "and she wouldn't talk to me for about three days. And she'd asked!" Continued Harington during the interview: “It’s quite nice walking around, which will only happen for a few months before everyone’s seen it, knowing. I know and no one else does. I know how it wraps up. I think it’s gonna be groundbreaking.” An Uproxx piece Friday offers a little more from the Harington interview:
"Harington isn’t sure whether he’s happy with the ending, because 'I don’t think it’s about happy or sad really. I’m satisfied with what they did, but I don’t know whether I’ll be really satisfied until I see it.' "The Thrones cast has been surprisingly forthcoming about how the public will relate to the series finale, with (Sophie) Turner, among others, accepting that it won’t be for everyone. 'There will be some people who are disappointed, I’m sure, because they will want certain people to end up in certain places,' she previously confessed, while Ian Glen (Ser Jorah) said, 'You cannot please everyone.' Including Ygritte, apparently."
So there you have it. That's certainly an interesting reaction, as we wait for the final season to premiere on April 14. By the way, Kit telling his wife his big secret might remind you of this earlier piece of ours, in which we noted that Sophie Turner has likewise told a few people how Game of Thrones ends. Miraculously, none of the people who've been told the secrets have spilled the beans as of yet.

Personal ‘flying sports car’ made its maiden flight and didn’t crash

Half a century ago, futurists predicted that personal aircraft would be the norm by the year 2000 or shortly thereafter. Well, it's 2019 and the promise of a flying car has never been fulfilled. Still, that's not stopping some incredibly bold DIYers from trying their hand at their own flying vehicles, and some of them aren't half bad. In a new video by Tomasz Patan, one of the more impressive prototypes "flying cars" is shown off in great detail. It's been named the Jetson Speeder, and its creators called it a PAV, or personal air vehicle. It's not going to replace your car any time soon, but it sure is cool. If the Jetson Speeder looks a bit like an oversized drone that's because, well, it kind of is. It utilizes a tried and true quadcopter rotor arrangement with each blade powered by its own motor, for a total of eight. Its maximum weight capacity is an impressive 220 pounds, but at just 15 minutes of flight time each trip is a rather brief affair. Nevertheless, it is indeed capable of carrying a full grown adult with ease, and in a series of tests it's shown to be a relatively stable aircraft, at least in short jaunts. The video was actually recorded nearly a year ago, but its creators have decided to publish it now in the hopes of attracting partners who can help push the project to the next stage. "It turned out to be a fantastic experience that everyone should be able to try," they explain. "Being able to move through the air so effortlessly without vibrations or noise - it just felt so great. After months of careful planning, designing, programming and building we had this beautifully flying electric machine which was the first step leading to something even greater: Bringing the personal electric flight to everyone." The team, which goes by the name Jetson Aero, will have their work cut out for them if they hope to bring the machine to market, but it's safe to say that we're all rooting for them.
