I’m not saying you must read my ‘Game of Thrones’ recaps to prepare for Sunday, just that there are worse ways you could spend your time ahead of the premiere.

SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! 

Here is a convenient link to all of my season 6 Game of Thrones recaps to get you in the mood for the BIGGEST TELEVISION EVENT OF THE YEAR, I AM NOT EXAGGERATING. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, I’M NOT YELLING, YOU’RE YELLING.

My buddy Andrew Dansby ranks the power players left in Game of Thrones.

This post only ranks the standings of House Stark. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE LYANNA MORMONT, Y’ALL. And here is a ranking of the Lannisters. It does not bode well for our lover twins.

Here’s a very good interview with George R.R. Martin who, like all the book readers, wishes that Lady Stoneheart had been in the show (while weakly defending the showrunners’ decision to cut her out). Oh, and if you haven’t read the books, don’t read the interview because it contains tons of spoilers.

This is Gizmodo’s take on Azor Ahai, which is a little closer to my own. Although I have to say, I still think it’s some combination of Jon + Dany. It’s important to remember that prophecy is never a straight line.

“Winter is here” = snow machines.

The cast discuss the battles to come in this piece, how they are more personal, but also unlike anything that has come before.

Queen of Thorns. Next question?

Speaking of, this is a reminder that the Queen of Thorns is the sexiest woman in Westeros.

A reminder that Game of Thrones can be very, very funny.

Spoiler, but not really: this character will be back this season.

What would it take to kill the dragons? (TL;DR: maybe ice.)

Here are four solid suggestions for periods in Westeros’ history that would make great prequels.

Everyone at Westworld kept poor Evan Rachel Wood in the dark about the whole timeline thing.

Another reminder that Stranger Things season two will be here before you know it.

This is a very long piece about period blood being shown on TV a lot more these days, which is what happens when women are finally able to tell their own god damned stories.

IMPORTANT BACHELOR IN PARADISE TIMELINE. (Note: not important at all.)

Kermit’s former voice actor is very sad about being fired. 😦

Don’t have Amazon Prime? You can soon watch Transparent on Sundance.

General Hospital is going to bring Stone Cates back even though he’s been dead for over 20 years.

Way to go, Bryan Fuller.
