We've got less than a week to go until the 16th of July, and you know what that means: Winter is almost finally here...again! Welcome back to the annual Giant Bomb Game of Thrones discussion thread, your one stop shop for
people saying how they don't give a shit about GoT and yet come back here every week to bitch about it all your Game of Thrones discussion needs.
In this thread, you will find:
Everything up to and including the latest aired (NOT LEAKED) episode is fair game. Don't spoiler tag your post unless it contains leaks (production photos, sourced rumors, actual leaked episodes, etc) or book material that we somehow haven't bypassed and that may still be relevant. We really flopped on this one last year, so I'mma try and set it in stone straight from the get-go. Don't come into this thread unless you've seen the latest episode or like living dangerously! Ned Stark dies! Joffery gets poisoned! Melisandre is super old! There's dragons now! Be forewarned!

People getting super salty!
It's cool if you aren't enjoying the show. It's fine to mention criticisms or aspects you wish could be improved or how you'd rather X happened or whatever. Just don't make it seem like coming into this thread and bitching about how you hate everything is some self-flagellation ritual that you need to take part in every week. This isn't a sunshine and rainbows only zone, but don't come here and tell us how watching GoT is like pouring acid into your eyes every week, okay? You'll make me cry, and I cry real ugly. We always have a bit of a problem with this in every season's thread, so let's just take it easy from the start this time.
With all that shit out of the way, here's some info!
When: July 16th at 9PM. See www.daystillgameofthrones.com.
