How would you die on Game of Thrones? Me? I get my eyes popped out by The Mountain, apparently. But hey, on the upside, I’m the sexy Viper.
BRAGGING ALERT: I got 7/7 on this quiz. But then it’s my job to write about this show, so.
Sansa and Arya ain’t playing around this season. Just ask Littlefinger.
The actor who plays perhaps the last new character (or at least new important-ish character) speaks.
Patton Oswalt has some ideas about what should come after Game of Thrones:

The Emmys will no longer allow American Horror Story, The Sinner, and American Vandal to compete in the Limited Series category because they contain recurring characters and storylines. Fair.
Did you watch the premiere of Fosse/Verdon last night? (Confession: I have not watched it yet, I am been gorging on this Game of Thrones marathon like an idiot.) Here is a great piece about their marriage and their performances, if you are interested in learning more.
HMMM … Will the new Walking Dead spinoff be about Judith? Mayhaps!
In the most interesting development in the escalating war between Netflix and theater owners, Netflix is about to buy the historic Grauman’s Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles.

We have a new one-day winnings record on Jeopardy. SCRAM, KEN JENNINGS. (Just kidding, Ken Jennings is delightful.)
Oh no, Logo isn’t going to broadcast Eurovision Song Contest this year. WHERE WILL WE GET OUR EUROVISION SONG CONTEST?
Well, this is interesting: the DIY channel is going to be rebranded “Magnolia” and basically become the Chip and Joanna Gaines network.
Pluto TV — a free TV streaming service — is adding two new drama channels. Pluto Drama, which will air some British series, including Doctor Who; and Pluto Retro TV which will feature shows from the 70s, 80s, and 90s like 21 Jump Street.
