By now the majority of you should have seen the most recent episode of Game of Thrones.

It appears the internet has stumbled upon the Prince That Was Promised, but if I could give you any advice at all, I'd recommend not watching "The Long Night" on less than five hours of sleep.
Trust me; you'll notice the difference.
