We might be in the middle of a heatwave but Winter Is Here, and everyone and their mothers have opinions about the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. Just a few days away from what is the beginning of the end for the Ice & Fire saga and with no book release in sight (damn you, GRRM!), speculation is obviously at an all-time high about what Season 7 will bring. And I wouldn’t be a true blogging fan if I didn’t add my own babble to the mix now, would I?
I know I’m not the only one buzzing with anticipation for the new Game of Thrones season… July 16 can’t get here soon enough, and, as bummed as I am for the shorter season run, I have to assume that this means less filler, solid episodes and amazing action leading up to the grand finale that will be the (even shorter) last season of the show.
When Game of Thrones first came out back in 2010, it took all my willpower to refrain from watching each new episode. I’d learned my lesson over the years: the long wait, week after week, would be excruciating. Instead, I patiently waited for the season finale and then spent a long weekend devouring the entire first season.
