I made a list of things you can pretty much count on happening this season on ‘Game of Thrones,’ in case you just can’t wait until Sunday.

3 DAYS.

I made you a gallery of 17 things I think you can safely count on happening on Game of Thrones this season. I know that predicting a Sex and the City crossover will be controversial, but I stand by it.

Game of Thrones had its big premiere in Los Angeles last night and just released a few new pictures from the first episode:

Here’s an article that asks an important question: Who will get Bronn’s loyalties: Jaime or Tyrion?

TV Guide decided to rank the “most underappreciated” characters on Game of Thrones, which, OK, but underappreciated by whom? I happen to greatly appreciate Varys, for instance.

And Warming Glow tries to rank character deaths in order of how devastating their deaths would be. As much as I love her, Sansa needs to be much, much lower, but I’ve got no problem with number one.

Famous last words.

2. Next question.

Here are Daenerys’ forces ranked in value.

Uh-oh, Isaac Hempstead-Wright is predicting a very dark finale. And Kit Harington is warning that this season is “a different TV show, really.” I DON’T WANT IT TO BE DIFFERENT, THOUGH.

Here’s a theory that Jon Snow is Azor Ahai, which makes very good valid points. But let’s be clear, Jon Snow’s resurrection did not “shake” this fan. We all knew it was going to happen. (Also, I still think he and Dany are both Azor Ahai. Somehow.)

Here is the list of Emmy nominees, and, OH, HEY, LOOK AT THAT, THE LEFTOVERS GOT SCREWED AGAIN, GOD DAMN IT. The Crown? THE CROWN? SHAME ON ALL OF YOU.

Fox has released a description of season two of The Exorcist (and some casting news, see below):

Season 2 picks up with Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera) and a newly collarless Marcus Keane (Ben Daniels) out of Chicago and on the road, searching out evil. Across the Atlantic, Father Bennett (Kurt Egyiawan) attempts to weed out those within the Vatican who have turned against God. Ultimately, Tomas and Marcus are led to Andrew Kim (John Cho), a former child psychologist who runs a group home for five at-risk foster children on a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle. When one of the children under Andrew’s care is targeted by a powerful force, the two priests head west, setting themselves on a collision course with hell.

HBO is making all of the first season of Insecure available for free on YouTube on July 23rd, and if you haven’t seen this smart little comedy, you should do yourself a favor and watch.

Some Comic-Con previews:

American Horror Story released another tease on Instagram, and Ryan Murphy is clearly going to try to trigger my trypophobia. IT’S NO JOKE.

Corinne will be attending the Bachelor in Paradise reunion, you guys, so breathe easy. Also, the show will now return on August 14th.

I SWEAR TO GOD IF YOU CAST BEN HIGGINS AS THE NEXT BACHELOR I WILL BURN THIS WHOLE PLACE DOWN.

Frank Darabont’s lawsuit against The Walking Dead continues and some of his emails have been released. An actual quote from one of Darabont’s emails: “YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE MOTHERFUCKING SCRIPT! I EVEN CHOOSE MY GODDAMN COMMAS FOR A REASON!” He seems nice.

Supernatural is back to work. I don’t know, I think Dean should grow out his beard.

Kyle MacLachlan is very good at social media.

This isn’t even a contest.

Don’t worry, Donald Trump, Piers Morgan is here to defend your honor!

This is how divided America is right now.

Abby Lee Miller is now in jail. My heart bleeds.

  1. 5.74 million people total watched said news networks. 200 million people were registered to vote in 2016 of those 55.4% voted. 110.8 million people. So the people watching these very partisan shows represent 5.18% of the people that actually vote. 2.87% of the people registered to vote. This definitely supports my theory that a VERY vocal minority is trying to drive the country apart while the rest of us want our political leaders to act like reasonable adults, work together, compromise and lead this country. Sadly that 2.87% are the only ones to show up to the primaries.

      1. Great! I’d particularly like to hear your case against The Crown. I thought it was particularly well-crafted episodic TV.

      2. Oh, well, I can tell you that right now without a whole post. I don’t have anything against “The Crown,” it was fine, it was lovely to look at. But it is the safest of safe choices in a year with so many interesting, daring options. “This is Us” is going to win in any event. But I’ll write more.
