The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is quickly approaching, and while winter is long gone in Canton, the imaginary world of Westeros is gearing up for a frosty bloodbath unlike anything we’ve ever seen. And with only six episodes set to air for this final season, you won’t want to miss a second of the action.

Based on the bestselling book series by George R.R. Martin, HBO’s Game of Thrones series has gained a serious cult following since debuting in 2011. In China, the show has also become popular among TV viewers. In January, Chinese entertainment giant Tencent announced they had developed a simulation game about the intrepid world. On Weibo, one user has staked his claim to the comedic throne by creating hilarious renditions of GOT characters on the daily grind in the Middle Kingdom.
