Get ready for the week-end

I have been talking about it for weeks and finally time has come. Obviously, there is nothing else to do this week than prepare yourself for the big night. The night we are finally going to find out what happened to Jon Snow. Between making popcorn and rewatching  the last episode of last season, you barely have time for anything else this week, but for those of you who have not fallen for the incredible series (are you really human?)  that Game of Thrones is, here is what to do this week.
