Game of Thrones
In this penultimate season, old alliances are tested and new ones forged, and winter in Westeros brings with it huge revelations about Jon Snow. Cersei is losing friends rapidly, and it’s clear her constant scheming and double-crossing is only going to get her so far. Sansa and Arya Stark have to decide where their loyalties lie, while Daenerys demands everyone bend the knee and goes to war with the Lannisters with her precious dragons in tow. Meanwhile, while the families of the Seven Kingdoms have been squabbling, the undead army of White Walkers show that they are prepared and a force to be reckoned with. While not a patch on post-Red Wedding season four, this season did a decent job balancing huge spectaclur set-pieces with character development and game-changing moments. Hopefully by now you’ve forgotten how bad Ed Sheeran’s cameo was.
