Is Game of Thrones here yet? (NO.)
By this time in 2016, HBO’s biggest hit, with the highest amount of t*ts and dragons, was already three episodes into the season — we had already gotten our first look at the Tower of Joy, Jon Snow was back from the dead (unlike poor Shaggydog), and Tyrion was failing to amuse Missandei and Grey Worm. But this year, Thrones isn’t premiering until July 16, due to some weather-related shenanigans, and the wait feels interminable. Fans (who are used to waiting when it comes to all things George R.R. Martin) have been passing the time by scouring the internet for series finale fan theories, pitching spinoff ideas, and now, adding a dash of Thrones to their other favorite TV shows.
