Ooh, crikey bobs. It’s the day hundreds of thousands of Thrones fans have been waiting for – winter is here! Like the White Walkers’ army of the dead GoT devotees have been shuffling about lifelessly for the best part of 12 months in anticipation of the penultimate season of the bloody saga.
Queen Cersei Lannister sits atop the Iron Throne for the time being but she has competition. Daenerys Targaryen (with her dragons and Dothraki horde) and the Stark children are keen to see her die a horrid death whether by poisoning, burning by wildfire or hacking and chopping.
However, before scores can be settled, new alliances must be formed and plans made because ruling the jewel kingdom of Westeros will be meaningless if all who inhabit it are dead. Marching south from beyond the wall comes the Night King and his army of the dead – standing in his way is everyone’s go-to guy when the s**t hits the fan, Jon Snow and his men of the Night’s Watch.
Game of Thrones – Monday at 9.00pm on Sky Atlantic and Sky Go.
