It may be a scorching summer here this April, but the much-awaited and talked about winter has come to Westeros. You know what that means, right? For the last 7 years, the TV static noise and the HBO logo appearing, have signalled a rollercoaster ride of emotions for the next hour, every Monday. Game of Thrones is here one last time, to let us indulge in its rich narratives of war, love, jealousy, trust and betrayal, so here are a few ways you can prepare to rejoice or cry yourself to sleep after finding out the final outcome:
Host a GoT Night
This goes without saying, that an epic tale can only get better when your fan fraternity is watching it together. Plan GoT nights with your friends every Monday – which will also give you all something to look forward to every week. Bounce from Furlenco serves as a perfect entertainment unit, with its different seating arrangement options.
GoT Theme Song Ringtone
This one’s our personal favourite. Nothing gives us more chills than hearing the theme song played over the aerial view of the Westeros map – at the start of each episode. We think it’s safe to say that GoT is the one series where people do not skip the intro. Get into the mood by setting the theme song as your ringtone – there are acoustic versions available too! Although, we can’t promise if you’ll end up listening to the tune and skipping your calls.
Bingeing Previous Seasons
Since it’s been more than the usual year for the new season to arrive, we might need to refresh our memories with the plot line that happened in the previous season. Or, you might just want to revisit Cersei Lannister’s expression when she saw the white-walker for the first time. Rent the Entertainment Unit from Furlenco for a seamless binge session without interruptions, and get caught up and ready for the new episode.
Stay away from Social Media
A few people may have tried to give up social media for Lent every year, but this will require stronger will powers – because of the inevitable spoilers that flood your Facebook and Instagram pages, from people in other parts of the world who have already watched the new episode. If you’re one of them, don’t ruin the plot for others.
Have a party
Once the final season wraps up and changes our lives forever, plan a party with your friends. A theme party where everyone can come in character, and wine that continues to flow till the end of the night; this will give you a chance to catch up on everything that the series has accomplished, all of their character arcs, plot line developments, and if they confirmed fan theories or not.
