    It’s been a while. Last year, our hosts drove themselves crazy trying to make sense of Westworld. Now, they’ve embarked on a no less daunting task: figuring out what, exactly, is going to happen during the final season of Game of Thrones. It’s part of The Outline’s official Game of Thrones Day™, which you can track throughout the day on our site.
    Join Jeremy, Casey, and Josh as they catch up on what’s been happening in Westeros, remind Josh several times who Oberyn is (he’s the Prince of Dorne!), and get to some hardcore theories about who’s going to die now that all the armies are marching North.
    And a reminder: Out Westeros considers the fan theory a form of high art and a kind of religion. If you've got your own, send them to us as a voice memo to outwesteros@theoutline.com or find us right here at Anchor.
