The Great War has arrived, the Wall is down and the Night King’s army of white walkers is streaming toward Westeros. The end of arguably the most popular TV series of its era approaches, and millions will watch as the first of the final six episodes of Game of Thrones airs Sunday, wondering who will ultimately sit on the iron throne.

The series has been dissected by every TV critic around, so we’ll skip that here, and instead present this collection of facts, numbers, events and more for Thrones fans in the Tampa Bay area.

David Nutter, who directed Sunday’s Game of Thrones premiere (the title of which is yet to be revealed), as well as two others in this six-episode final season, is a graduate of Dunedin High School, Class of 1978, who performed in several high school productions during his time there before going on to the University of Miami. Nutter, who first found acclaim directing episodes of The X-Files, won his first Emmy for Band of Brothers, before winning another for the Game of Thrones episode ‘Mother’s Mercy,’ the Season 5 finale.

Capitals mailbag: What to expect in Washington’s first postseason as the defending champs

Nathan S. writes: Do you think fans will be louder and less nervous, especially when Caps give up a goal, in first round series than they have in recent years or do you think there is still some residual negativity from prior playoff failures?

I think this ended last season when the Caps finally beat the Pittsburgh Penguins. Against Tampa Bay and Vegas in the next two rounds, the arena was louder than I have ever head it. It also helped that the Caps were able to overcome a 2-0 series deficit against Columbus. I do not think there is any situation this postseason that will bring the return of the ‘here we go again’ mentality that plagued this city and its fans in the postseason. Now there is a feeling like there is no deficit that cannot be overcome. There is a sense of belief and optimism that this team can actually win when it matters.
