It’s okay, don’t worry. Just as there are alcohol hangover remedies, like menudo and greasy hash browns with bacon, there are GoT remedies to help cure your hangover for the next few months.
Try these babies out:
Create Your Own House Sigil
Lions, Direwolves, Dragons; these are all powerful beasts worthy of representing the great houses of GoT. Why not do like Littlefinger and create your own? We know, we know, lots of honorable animals are taken, but who says a mighty narwhal, squirrel or alpaca can’t represent House Chavez? Nuts and trees for life.
Research Your Ancestry
A lot of the fun in GoT comes from trying to figure out who the frak is related to which ancient this king or that lord, and though you’ve got most of the familial ties in the show down by now, the fun doesn’t have to end there! Break out the Google and start researching your own ancestry! Find those creepy brother-sister hook-ups from a hundred years ago that probably led to the creation of that pompous little twit of a cousin of yours. Or, find out if your family comes from a great line of magical folks!
Play “Where Are My Dragons?!”
Surely, like the rest of us, you’re all about Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of dragons. Why not partake of a little cosplay involving your dogs? Dress the little suckers up as dragons, drive ‘em out to a wilderness park, set ‘em loose and start hunting! Where are those dragons now? Here, little dragons, Mommy’s brought a yummy biscuit!
Memorize Every Noble House and Sing Them to the Tune of 50 Nifty United States!
50 Nifty Houses of Westeros from 7 battling kingdoms. 50 nifty heads on the chop block, from 7 battling kiiiiingdoms! Baratheon, Lannister, Tully, Frey, Greyjoy, Targaryen! Arryn, Martell, Tyrell, Clegane, Mormont, Mallister!
You get the point, right? Imagine, if ten months from now you could recite nearly every House in the books? You’d be a geeky legend in no time!
Use Seasons 1 and 2 as a Drinking Game
Every time someone appears naked in the series take a shot of Patron! If you play this it’ll also calm the anxiety you feel when the not-so-attractive old guys unclothe.
Prove You Have Dragon’s Blood
You know, build up your resistance to fire. Take this one slow, as burns are most likely unavoidable. But, who knows, maybe you DO have dragon’s blood? Ah, yeah!
Work on Your White Walker Halloween Costume
At the end of season two we had our first glimpse of those whacky White Walkers, including their fun-loving leader with the crazy blue eyes. Pass some time re-creating it! Perhaps you could go as the Sexy White Walker. Because, you know, dead people reanimated by dark magic is sooo sexy!
Use These GoT P-U Lines at the Clubs
Winter IS coming!
Gender Bend and Pass Yourself Off As a Boy
Do like Arya and see how long it takes for your co-workers to figure out that Sam is actually Samantha! Maybe you can even attempt passing yourself off as the new office mail boy and snag some secret intel from your boss who has no idea you aren’t who you say you are.
Speak in a British Accent
Practice, practice, practice. Practice until you know you can snag a bit role on season 3.
Read the Books
If all else fails you could, you know, read the books. That is if you haven’t already, or if you don’t mind spoilers for the next few seasons.
