If you haven’t watched Game of Thrones or kept up with every season, then, “You know nothing, Jon Snow.” Just to bring you up to date, in last season we experienced Jon and Daenerys forming an ultra-close bond, watched Arya kill Littlefinger, trembled as The Night King stormed The Wall with Dany’s stolen dragon, and nodded knowingly as Jon was revealed as the Iron Throne’s rightful heir.
With the eighth and final season now well on its way, we want to share ten Game of Thrones slang phrases and words you should absolutely use in daily life. If you’re around people who don’t share your love of the medieval drama, it will just seem like you’re speaking a really cool code.
