Time is up. If you've been trying to dodge as many Game of Thrones spoilers as possible, good luck after this morning - because that's when the internet will basically become unusable. Alternatively, if you're still in need of a refresher, here's everything you need to know.
There's a lot to take in over seven seasons, so consider this very much the abridged version. If you're after a fast and snappy Cliff's Notes that you can digest quickly, io9's Beth Elderkin has the major plot points from every season that you can digest in under ten minutes.
That should leave you with enough time to be up to speed before the first episode goes to air at 11AM AEST. If you're holding out until tonight, you'll have to dodge internet spoilers until 2030 AEST.
For those who want deeper breakdowns of all the banging, throat-slitting and political machinations from each season, we've also got individual recaps all the way from season 1 to season 7 below.
