Game of Thrones
The battle for the Iron Throne rages on. After what seemed a years-long Westeros winter, GOT is back for a seven-episode penultimate season, bringing long-anticipated showdowns closer than ever. Daenerys Targaryen will finally make shore on Westeros with her dragons and her assembled fleet. Jon Snow, now the king of the North, appears destined to lead the fight against the invasion of undead White Walkers, but don’t rule out an alliance between Snow and the Mother of Dragons in a bid to seize the Iron Throne from murderous Cersei Lannister.
