HOLY MOTHER OF WESTEROS.

DID YOU SEE HOW THE MOUNTAIN CRUSHED THAT GUY’S HEAD LAST NIGHT?

WHAT ABOUT WHEN DAENERYS TOTALLY SCHOOLED THOSE KHAL DROGO DOTHRAKI?

And we just have to talk about JON SNOW.

Chances are, you have heard one of these statements over the past week.

Game of Thrones has returned, and everyone is talking about it. Including Rosie Waterland and Laura Brodnik on The Binge. If you want to hear a truly funny catch-up on the season.

Speaking of, on the latest episode of The Binge Rosie and Laura talked all things GOT. It may also help you fake it till you make it.

Well, almost everyone.

There are two types of people in the world. Those who watch Game of Thrones, and those who presume you watch Game of Thrones, when actually you don’t.

For those people, life is hard at this time of year.

So many office jokes you're left out of. So many attractive baristas you can't chat with. So many smug hipsters you need to avoid (actually, this is sounding better and better).

But sometimes, it’s just easier to pretend you do.

And here's a conversational guide to faking your way through all of Game of Thrones interactions.

1. Scoff and say, "You know nothing." No, really, you know nothing.

2. "Oh, my favourite character is...ah...I can't remember their name" (neither can anyone who watches it).

4 Just keep saying HODOR.


Hodor.

6 With a blank face, just say "Valar morghulis". Don't worry about it. Just give it a go.

Watch Emilia Clarke talking about Daenerys as a widow:

7 "I have NO IDEA who that bearded guy was." Because, let's be honest, nor does anyone who watches the show.

8 “Well, now we're operating without the books, we're all in the dark.” Especially you.

9. “Well, I knew that Jon Snow would come back. He was on the set in Ireland." The Daily Mail told you.

10. "I thought they'd really show that dog eating the baby. Times have changed." Yes, that's A Thing.

11 And of course: “Winter is coming.” It's May. Winter really is coming. You can't go wrong with that.
