Get up to speed before the new season begins.
No doubt the biggest thing in TV this week is the impending premiere of Game of Thrones seventh season, which drops this weekend on HBO. As there’s never really been a television show with so much mythology steeped into its narrative, there’s a lot to examine in the series: plenty of places to go deep diving for symbolism, plenty of facets to rank, and plenty of theories to explore.
In honor of season seven, I’ve scrounged up nine of the best video essays I could find on GoT, covering everything from the repercussions of morality, to the 10 most powerful fighters in the show, to the biggest clues you might have missed. It’s everything you need – and maybe a little more – to get you amped up for the new season.
