Game of Thrones is nearly back after almost two years off the air. That’s a long time for any TV show, but it’s especially problematic for a series that has become famous for its massive cast of characters, branching storylines, and complicated plot. What else would you expect from a show based on George R.R. Martin’s 4,228 pages (and counting, theoretically) of books?
Fortunately, the internet is full of resources to get caught up for the final season premiere on Sunday. We’ve rounded up the best of them here, for everyone from die-hard Thrones veterans to fresh-faced summer children. (Don’t worry, series newcomers. You’ll get that reference soon enough.)
