Is that more shade being thrown? Sources tell E! News that while Strahan and Ripa seemed to have gotten over the drama that took place over the past few weeks, there is still lingering tension on set. “The spark was missing…You can tell there’s a sadness in Kelly, after working with someone for so long,” an insider says, adding, “but you can tell she’s just trying to put on a smile and put forward the best show”When the show wasn’t taping, Ripa and Strahan interacted and took photos with members of the audience, but never together. “It didn’t seem like they were avoiding each other but kept their distance for sure,” another source tells us. “They went separate ways during commercial breaks.” Monday the co-hosts celebrated their Daytime Emmys win, and both said the victory caught them off guard because they found out from their friends. “I find when we tend to not go we tend to win,” Kelly joked of their absence from the Los Angeles awards show.Let the countdown to Strahan’s departure begin.

Game of Thrones brought back Jon Snow (Kit Harington) after almost a year of insisting the character was dead. He technically was dead until Melisandre (Carice van Houten) worked her magic and brought the hero back from the dead. Harington was spotted around set for months, but maintained he would only be back as a corpse. So, whatever, he lied. He’s back. Deal with it. So how did producers manage to keep a lid on leaks? By giving good ol’ Jon Snow a nickname.

The producers dubbed him “LC,” meaning “Lord Commander,” not Lauren Conrad. Although Jon Snow is kind of the LC of the Game of Thrones group…

Anyway, producers didn’t put him in the scripts, he wasn’t even mentioned in scene breakdowns, call sheets or any other show material, EW reports. His name wasn’t uttered. “No one was allowed to say ‘Jon Snow’ on set, ever, everyone had to refer to me as ‘LC,'” Harington said.

The only time the name “Jon Snow” was said was in on-camera dialogue. According to EW, van Houten had some fun with the “LC” name while she washed Harington’s naked body on set. Get it? You get it.

Van Houten’s fun has been continuing on Twitter. The day after the episode aired she tweeted the below to fans.

Today saw the second night of the 2016 Daytime Emmys and when the whole thing was over, ABC and CBS tied for the most number of wins with 6 each, taking between them more than half of the total statuettes given out tonight. ABC of course left with top bragging rights as its General Hospital took home Outstanding Drama, while CBS added tonight’s to the 11 awards it won Friday evening. But naturally, the biggest point of discussion during the ceremony was the fact that Live with Kelly and Michael stars Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan took home a joint win for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host just a week after being at the center of serious drama surrounding Strahan’s move to Good Morning America. Neither were on hand to accept the award of course, but Dr. Oz, who presented the award, accepted on their behalf and joked that they’d share custody.
