    This Week: All the Game of Thrones content you’ve ~GOT~ to have

    HBO

    The only thing that matters in the world, AKA, the final season of Game of Thrones is almost upon us — and our Australia-based contributor Jenna Guillaume is ON IT with all the recap content anyone in the Seven Kingdoms could ever need:

    First, if you’re just looking to brush up on plot points from the first seven seasons, Jenna went back and rewatched **it all** and made a handy guide for each one. You can start with season 1 here and season 2 here!

    (And if you need a way quicker refresher, here’s just the basics of what you should know before season 8 begins!)

    Now, you’re likely up to speed on all that R+L=J business, but guys, there are so. many. Fan theories out there still, and here are the 15 spiciest and likeliest ones that Jenna’s found.

    Finally, because almost all good characters must die, apparently, you’ll wanna weigh in on Jenna’s predictions for who makes it to the end, and who definitely won't. Between us, we’re banking on Brienne of Tarth all the way!!

    And if you still need **more** Thrones, stay tuned with us on our very special GOT section, where we'll post alllll the new recaps, memes, and theories galore. We'll see you on the other side!
