Understanding ‘Game of Thrones’ By the Numbers

This Sunday, Game of Thrones returns to HBO for its seventh season. There’s a lot to keep track of on this epic show. A LOT. We did a complete re-watch of the previous six seasons to calculate only the most essential data. How many beheadings were there? How many times did someone say, “Winter is coming” before it finally came? How many kids got eaten by their parents?  These are the facts the people need to know!

The end of Season 6, the first that departed from author George R.R. Martin’s series of books, seemingly wrapped up many plot lines and, typical of GoT, killed off many dear characters. But that only makes the beginning of Season 7 more exciting.

To get ready (without the epic binge watch), check out the video above and the infographic below.
