It’s going to be a long-ass month
It’s nearly here, but not nearly enough.
The eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones arrives on April 14th, probably in the middle of the damn night or something. That’s a whole month away. What are we meant to do until then? How can we scratch the Westeros-sized itch that grows by the day? Here are a few ideas…
Rewatch seasons 1-7
This’ll only take 67 hours or so of the month, but they’ll be ever such fun hours. Ever such violent, sexy, exciting hours filled with beheadings, betrayals, battles, badasses, beards, braids, broadswords, brutes, bustiers, barbarians, Bran, Beric, Bronn and bottoms. You might spot some weird stuff upon a rewatch though.
Visit some GOT-themed spots
Whether poring endlessly over HBO publicity images and trailers to try and spot hidden clues, delving into the world of fan theories, reading interviews with all the stars to try and read between the lines and figure out secret hints they might be making without intending to make, or reading though everything else George R.R. Martin does on the offchance there’s a footnote that says “also Gendry ends up as king”, you can fill a lot of hours with just wondering about nonsense!
There is GOT-themed beer available, described by its makers as “thick and chewy” – have enough of that and the month’ll be over before you know it.
