Game of Thrones, "The Dance of Dragons" (Sunday, June 7, 9/8c, HBO)

Yes, it's already here: The penultimate episode of the season, wherein the brown stuff usually hits the dragonwings. It'll be hard to top last week's revelation of the Night's King, but we have faith. Jon returns from the horror of Hardhome, and the official HBO description of the episode also says Dany "reluctantly oversees a traditional celebration of athleticism," which is certainly an interesting—if not inaccurate—way of describing gladiator-style fights to the death.
