Every year I look forward to the new season of Game of Thrones premiering, not only because it is gratuitously great to watch, but because it is great fun to recap as well! This year will be no exception — other than Season 7 being shorter. However, considering they still have the same budget, I am expecting it to be glorious to watch.

With only only a few days to go, and, because I just can’t wait any longer for the show to start, I thought I’d spend some time searching the internet for absolutely everything that will kill some time until the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones.

Firstly, here’s all the information I could find out about Episode 1 of Game of Thrones Season 7.

The title of Episode 1 is “Dragonstone” and, seriously, if there is not epic dragons in this one I will be pissed! The synopsis is below.

“Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.
Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss. Directed by Jeremy Podeswa.”

Hmmm… Daenerys comes home. Please, oh please, let this involve dragons and burning shit.

Along with the new synopsis, HBO has released the following images from Episode 1 of Game of Thrones Season 7.

Interesting to note in these images, is the one of Daenerys standing before what appears to be a missing iron throne. If there is ever a case for Daenerys to burn shit to the ground using her dragons, it is when she realises the throne has been stolen.

Now, on to the fun stuff!

Want to know how you would kill one of Daenerys’ dragons? Well, Gizmodo spoke to Mark Witton, a paleontologist who specialises in pterosaurs, and found out that it would likely be harder than you thought. (Phew!) However, my theory is, that, given enough wildfire and ample time to piss off Cersei Lannister, it just might be possible.

Do you like taking quizzes? Well, The Australian is claiming they have developed the “toughest Game of Thrones quiz ever.” So, you might want to check that out here.

For those of you who are fans of Facebook temporary profile pics frames, you can show your support for the Game of Thrones houses. As you can see, I am House Stark for the next week. (And, yes, I purposely placed the frame that way, I want you all to choose House Stark 😉 ) If you don’t know how to add a Facebook frame, all you have to do is hover over your current Facebook profile pic and click on “update profile picture.” Then, select “add frame” and do a search for “Game of Thrones.” You can also chose to have the frame as a temporary one or add it permanently to your profile pic.

Snapchat has apparently added a secret Game of Thrones filter. However, I can’t work out how to get it 🙁 If you want details on how to get this filter, you can check out this article by Metro. Please be aware, though, that if you do access the Game of Thrones filter, you only have one hour in which to use it, so make sure you snap as many pics of yourself as a white walker as possible.

And, if you have the funds to travel (or live nearby), here’s all the places you can visit where Game of Thrones films on location.

 

Do you just watch Game of Thrones for the gratuitous violence? Well, Season 7 has that covered!

According to Rory McCann, who plays possibly the most brutal character in Game of Thrones, (although, I place my money on Arya-Fucking-Stark here, rather than the Hound), Season 7 will be the “most violent yet.” And, he actually accounts this to … the weather!

“All I can say is, it’s going to get worse. It’s getting colder.”

White walkers take over London

When it comes to preparation in regard to the Season 7 premiere, HBO sent white walkers into London to freak people the fuck out. I’m not sure why they only seemed to do this in England, but, the effect was fantastic, nonetheless. If you were not in London to witness this event, Business Insider kindly filmed it for everyone.

Why not brush up on Game of Thrones first?

Now, if you want to brush up on what went down in the Season 6 finale of Game of Thrones, you can check out my recap of Episode 10 titled “The Winds of Winter”) here. And, if you loved the Tits and Dragons meter last year, have no fear, I will certainly be including it in every Game of Thrones recap this year!

Finally, why not consider subscribing to The Snarking Dead, so you never miss another snarky recap of your favorite shows again!

Please don’t be a pirate.

Thanks to Foxtel finally lowering its prices on Foxtel Play and changing its name to Foxtel Now, Game of Thrones fans in Australia will be able to watch the Season 7 premiere at 11 am (local time) on Monday for much less than they could last year. This time is comparable to when the U.S. will get to see the show and much quicker than you will be able to illegally download it. While this is not a plug for Foxtel (they still have a tonne of faults IMHO, you can now buy their Now service per month and watch it on most devices. If you are only interested in Game of Thrones, you only need to buy two months worth, and this will set you back $15 a month, thanks to the Pop Package. Along with Game of Thrones, this package also include shows such as Fear the Walking Dead, The Walking Dead, and Big Little Lies.
