In a world of shocked Social Media Enthusiasts determined to ruin it for you.

But did you know the Thenns aren’t actually Wildlings? Or they are to people South of The Wall, but they don’t identify with The Free People. Sound confusing? Check out our youtube rec of the week from Emergency Awesome! This guy does a phenomenal job breaking down the complex nature of society North of The Wall and filling viewers in on all those tidbits which just weren’t relevant to the Game of Thrones narrative.
