There are moments in Game of Thrones that people
will never forget: Ned Stark
being beheaded; Joffrey’s face turning purple as he died from poison; and
Talisa Stark being repeatedly stabbed in her pregnant belly as the Freys and
Boltons wiped out Robb Stark’s army at the Red Wedding - to name but three cheery examples.
Still, with the lore and mythology of Game Of Thrones making a 1,000 page
encyclopedia look like a children's pop-up book, it is only natural to
require a refresher course before sitting down and being greeted by hundreds of characters.
But, whilst the previously named and unforgettable events are
still significant, the fallout from them has already happened. So, instead of
trying to remember things dating back to the very first season like what Jon Snow
had for supper at Castle Black, it’s paramount to jog your memory about recent
events which will likely have an impact on season 7 and beyond.
Honourable Mention: Only Two Direwolves Remain
In-spite-of being rejected in favour of Wun Wun at the Battle of the Bastards, Ghost is still alive and is likely asleep at the feet of Jon Snow. Nymeria, meanwhile, is alive, but has not been seen since she chewed on Joffrey's arm and was released into the wild by Arya.
